What's Happening in Our Club
Thank you for the opportunity to work on the race project through Rotary!  Race weekend is almost here and we hopeful for a great turnout.  You can contribute to the success of the race in several ways:
 
Volunteer on Friday/Saturday
Please let Jeremy know if you are available to help with any of the following:
  • Packet/tshirt pick up & registration - Friday 5-8 p.m. at Pope County Museum parking lot
  • Race day coordination - setup, registration/tshirts, water stations, general help, clean up - Saturday 6:30 a.m. to finish (9:30 a.m.?)
If you're flexible and can help either or both days, let him know that too!  Jeremy can be reached at (320) 491-6631 or jpmyrom@wisper-wireless.com
 
Marketing Efforts
We have created an event on our Facebook Page for the race.  If you are on Facebook, help us get the word out by sharing the event to your timeline, friends and family. 
 
Invite your friends and family to register for the race using this link:  2018 Rotary 10K, 5K run/walk and Glenwood State Bank Miracle Mile .
 
Thank you all for your help and support a I learn about Glenwood, Rotary and helping with this race!
 
Be the Inspiration!
 
What a difference a few months makes. Take a look around town and see how amazing the Rotary Planters have become. This could not have happen without the hard work of local rotary members. Great Job!  
 Empowering Girls
 Glenwood Rotary is doing something about empowering girls and young women in third-world countries.
The local Rotary Club hosted a sew-a-thon last Tuesday that provides feminine hygiene kits to young girls in many poverty-stricken countries.
Why Feminine hygiene products or “Days for Girls” kits? 
Consider this question:  What if not having sanitary supplies meant days without school? Days of isolation? 
Girls in many poor countries use leaves, mattress stuffing, newspaper, corn husks, rocks, anything they can find...but still miss up to 2 months of education and opportunity every year. It turns out this issue is a surprising but instrumental key to social change for women all over the world, according to Judy Johnson, of the Maple Grove Rotary Club, who spoke to Glenwood Rotarians last week.
 
What is STRIVE?
Strive is a scholarship program that recognizes and rewards students from the lower one-fourth of the senior class who show improvement in their class standing. The winners of the Scholarships are determined by the net increase in their GPA from the end of their junior year to the third quarter of their senior year and have attended and actively participated in all scheduled Strive meetings. 
  • Highest Percentage GPA Increase $500.00 Scholarship
  • Second Highest Percentage Increase $250.00 Scholarship
