Something New.
We are still working on improving the sound, please bear with us.
The last meeting video is over 30 minutes long and had to be divided into three section. It's the meeting without the food and jokes. If this is too long for your enjoyment, please let me know. Your input is invaluable.
Over the next few meeting we will be experimenting with the concept of videoing our meeting and putting it on the website. The video will first come out on our website under the latest eMinnewaska, late Tuesday or Wednesday. An email copy will be sent over the weekend. The eMinnewaska will be update as needed on the website but only be mailed over the weekend.
If you would like to run a video ad please contact Lloyd Campbell.

Outbound Student Training
Ako attended the outbound/inbound student education training day in Roseville over the weekend. It was an all-day affair but full fun and excitement of meeting friends from the exchange program. The day started at 6:30 am with the drive to the cities and lasted until 7:00 pm with her arrival back home. A full day.
"Service before Self" New Member Summit
Service Above Self
Over the past three years, we added over 20 new members. It was time for our new members to get engage, take on a leadership role and make plans to take steps to shape the future of our organization. That was the purpose of the summit, to provide new members with a list of engagement opportunities as well as your feedback on how we can improve the club experience.  
The New Member Summit was held last week. We reviewed the Club Health Check Survey and ways of improving the club. Overall the meetings were well attended and good information was exchanged. One suggestion was that we hold a summit every six months and follow up on member engagement. More to come.
Mid-Term Assembly
A time to meet and network with fellow Rotarians, learn of club activities around the district, and re-energize for the rest of the year. All Rotarian are encouraged to attend, particularly club presidents and board members, Assistant Governors and District leadership.
The event will run from 7:30 am to 1:00 pm. A healthy breakfast and lunch will be served. (Please indicate in comments if you prefer vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free meals). There is no cost to register as it has already been included in your club's training fee.
