A message from Mike Holland.....

The board decided that we will not be doing the planters this year.  Therefore we have plants that we need to find a home for. I have about 13 flats with a variety of petunia, coleus, cannas, celosia, plus a few others. They are in the 4.00 or 5.00 dollar range.  I will bring the plants to Rotary on Tuesday.  Hoping that we can sell them so you can beautify your yard. Thanks.

Pamela Erickson, Secretary


A message from Amy Roers.....

Ako's graduation and going away party will be held on Friday evening  June 15 from 6:30-8:30 at the Glenwood United Parish Church located at 10 17th Ave NW.  All Rotarians and their guests are invited, along with her friends and other folks she has met during her stay here.  We will be serving desert, Ice cream sundae bar and Ako's favorite chocolate chip cookies and brownies. Here is what we could use help with: 2-3 people to help  set up around 3 at Glenwood United Church, 2 people to help serve during the party,  several folks to make Brownies and bring to the church at 3 the day of the party,  someone to make a centerpiece for 8 tables and 5-6 people to help clean up after the party.  She leaves the next day for her trip out east. We would really like to have a good turnout of Rotarians.  It is an open house so even if you can stop in for a few minutes, that would be awesome. 

Please RSVP to Amy at 320-766-1440 or amy.roers.ltvv if you can help in any way and also the number from your family that will be attending.

She's Back, an Uganda Project Update
We have had great success as a club with fundraising for the Uganda Project, thanks to the efforts of Jeanne Kramer!
Jeanne is doing more then just fundraising, she has "booths on the ground" and for the past 10 days Jeanne has been in Uganda working on the project first hand.

Do you have an Idea for a Project?
Planning for next year  Our new member, Dr. Haus attended the Grant Management Seminar (GMS) last Thursday which makes the club eligible next year to participate in Rotary’s Grant program. If you have an idea for a district or international project please contact Grant or Mary for more 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. Contact Dr. Haus  for more information.(That's our "hands-on sweat equity" for the project).  Thank you Glenwood Rotary for being “People of Action.”

Photos can be taken at club meeting or you can email Lloyd a copy of a photo. If you need assistance please contact Pam, Lloyd or come to the New Member Summit for a log in review.
