This Week's Meeting
On Tuesday, December 10th, we will be stuffing Christmas Treat Bags for the Minnewaska Students; these bags will be distributed before Christmas break.  We will be stuffing bags from 10:00am to 12:00pm at the Glenwood Chamber office--come when you can and stay as long as you like!  Many hands will make light work!

HOSTS NEEDED - Youth Exchange Program!
Are you interested in hosting an exchange student? Do you know a High School Student interested in being an exchange student for a month long program in the summer or a school year term during the school year?
 
We are currently looking for three host families to host our student for the 2020-2021 school year.  Exchange students typically rotate among two or three families during the year.  That means you’ll be hosting a student for about 3-5 months.  Your main responsibility is to create a welcoming family environment for your exchange student.  Youth Exchange is about sharing American culture and family life while learning about the culture and family life of the student you host.  Simply make your exchange student a part of your family. Please see the attached additional information.  Our last three students have been from Japan, Spain, and Mexico and have had wonderful experiences while attending Minnewaska Area High School. Please feel free to contact Amy Roers at 320-766-1440 for further information. 
 
 
Rotary Foundation Pledge
Foundation Chair, Brianna Zuber, is kicking off a campaign for pledging to the Rotary Foundation in 2018-2019.  Our goal is to have 100% participation and every donation makes a difference!  Remember, with each $1,000 donation, you are entitled to receive a Paul Harris Fellow recognition.  Also, when you've donated your first $800 to the Foundation, our Club will match this with $200--entitling you to receive your first Paul Harris Fellow!
 
Brianna would like all members to complete this PLEDGE FORM and return it to her, even if you aren't able to make a contribution this year.  With questions, contact her at (612) 803-2431 or bbzuber@gmail.com
