The Sew-A-Thon will give you the opportunity to make and assemble some of the sustainable feminine hygiene products that will be donated to young girls in third world countries around the world. (You do not need to know how to saw, just have a passion to help empower young girls and women from around the world)

STRIVE for Excellence
Youth mentoring is a key part of many Rotary clubs’ service efforts.  What better way have we to make an impact upon our communities, an impact that will last for generations to come!
STRIVE is a youth mentoring program that was developed by White Bear Lake Rotarian Don Mooney.  He started the program in his local high school, and soon thereafter his Rotary club picked up on it.  Since that time STRIVE has migrated to Rotary clubs throughout the world.
 
While STRIVE and other youth mentoring programs will vary from club to club, a common STRIVE model includes:
  • inviting the bottom third of the high school senior class to be matched with a Rotary mentor,
  • meeting at a STRIVE group at the school monthly,
  • awarding scholarships based upon % improvement in cumulative GPA
  • holding an awards banquet for STRIVE students and their families.
Each year those clubs managing a STRIVE program will experience at least a few real life-changing turnarounds for their students.  One student, when asked by a Rotarian what about the STRIVE program worked for her, answered: “My parents knew I was a loser, my counselors knew I was a loser, my teachers knew I was a loser…but you didn’t.”

Railroad Overpass Update
 

Railroad Overpass Update

County Commissioner Gordy Wagner updated us on the progress of the TH55 Railroad Overpass project. The Commissioner noted the importance of stressing the local safety concerns and keeping this project in front of the state and federal legislators. Commissioner Wagner presented an updated map of the project and each present rotarian signed a petition asking to move the project forward.
