Do you have an Idea for a Project?
Planning for next year
All the district grant money is gone for this year but this is the best time to plan for the upcoming  Rotary year. Remember if the club is going to write a grant we need to make sure the money is in the budget for our part of the matching grant, $1,000.00, and you need to get together with Grant, our PE, President Elect, to outline your possible grant. In order for our club to be eligible next year to participate in Rotary’s Grant program, we must send someone to the Grant Management Seminar (GMS). The 2018 schedule is out. The closest one to us will be held in St. Cloud, space in limited. (Thursday 5/3/2018, Courtyard by Marriott, 4:30-9:00, Thursday, registration limited to 25, last scheduled class )Please contact Mary or Grant and go to the district website for additional information.
 
Spring will soon be upon us and volunteers will be needed to help clear the trails for the Mountain Bike project in Barsness Park. (That's our "hands-on sweat equity" for the project).  More information to come!  Thank you Glenwood Rotary for being “People of Action.”
A Day and Done / Opioid Awareness Overdose Workshop
 
Get engaged in the District Conference celebration in the Done-In-A-Day Project and the Opioid Awareness Overdose Workshop. The Done in a Day project will need additional funding and supplies to help supply items to stuff the bags.  The goal is to create 1,000 care packages for victims of sex trafficking.   There will also be a workshop on Opioid Awareness. The Guthrie Theater on May 21 is the date and location of the next District Conference. You can go to the district website or contact Lloyd for additional information.
March Board Meeting 
Board Meeting 
 

Membership – Positive new membership summit feedback.

Foundation – Kevin Klimek:  Foundation speaker rescheduled because of bad weather.

Programs – Amy Roers:  Have programs through April.

International – Amy Roers:  Need to discuss end of the year party for foreign exchange student – Ako.  Next year’s student will be from Spain. We need a couple more team members on this committee.  We should also publicize the Summer Exchange Program at the School.  

Friendship Exchange to Brazil:  They will visit us in the Spring; we will visit them in November.  Also a trip to India in the spring.  We will have a speaker  here on April 10 on this topic.

Community – Laura Nordstrom:  Rotary’s focus for the next several years is on sex trafficking.  Laura has been designated the “champion” of Glenwood Rotary.  This is a 3-year commitment.  She attended the Rotary Trafficking Summit. District Conference on May 21 will be doing a project called “Done-in-a-Day” making Cornerstone Dignity Bags for victims of human trafficking.  They want to create 1000 of these bags which contain toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, soap, shampoo, conditioner, tissues, lotion, and non-perishable food items.  Rotary would like each club to donate 250 items.  Laura will reach out to the dentist office to see if they would be willing to donate toothbrushes and toothpaste.  Laura will work with Dane Ankeny on a Thrivent Action Grant that will give us $250 that perhaps we can partner with Tom’s for discounted prices on the items.  We will target April 24 as the celebration date for this event.

ASAP (Against Substance Abuse in Pope County) would like to present at one of our meetings.  Their focus is on marijuana use in children and youth.  Laura will contact them with possible dates.

Vocational – Jeanne Kramer:  Uganda project has been delayed from leaving on February 12 to sometime in May.  

Club - open:  This person would oversee the lobster feed, Christmas party and other social events.  

New Business:

Corporate Membership:  We allow spouses to be joint members of Rotary with each paying dues and only one being charged for lunch unless both attend the meeting and would both be charged.  The question has been brought up if we should also do this for businesses that have more than one person attending.  There was much discussion on this topic and it was decided to bring this to the members.  Amy will schedule April 17 as “You Better Be Here” for the topic of discussion.  Mary and Grant will handle the program.
