Club Headlines
Rotary International encourages regular “assemblies” to train, exchange ideas and celebrate accomplishments. Clubs are encouraged to have at least two per year to inform and excite Rotarians. The Rotary Club of Edina will hold one at its meeting Thursday, April 22.
 
Led by Past President Jennifer Bennerotte, the spring Club Assembly will focus on the Edina Rotary Foundation organization and goals, our committees, leadership development and more. Learn more about the club and its projects and processes. There will be time for discussion, questions and an exchange of ideas. 
 
The Rotary Club of Edina meets at 12:15 p.m. Thursdays at the Edina Country Club. All are welcome, though this week's meeting is more specific to members of the Rotary Club. Cost for the meeting is $20 for adults, $12 for kids and will be billed to your next quarterly invoice. 

The Rotary Club of Edina is working to assist a Minneapolis business damaged during civil unrest last summer.

Through a partnership with the Lake Street Council, several Rotary Clubs in Rotary International District 5950 are being paired with Minneapolis businesses damaged or destroyed in late May or early June 2020 to provide them assistance. Our club member's response has been swift and so very helpful for the owner, Amina Osman, who will be visiting our club next month. Brad Hepp has completed the insurance audit, Gary Pederson & Ryan Wilson are teaching her QuickBooks and helping her set up the company’s financials, Katy Campbell and her committee are working on marketing. We are currently looking for an electrician who can review the repairs made following the riot and determine what additional electrical work is needed. Post Plus also needs a review of some current legal documents and contracts. If you are interested in helping, contact Past President Sandy Schley, who is coordinating the project for the club on behalf of its Community Service and Race & Equity committees. Schley can be reached at 952-649-1236 or sandraschley@comcast.net.

The Rotary Club of Edina has honored three Good Samaritans for their selfless acts as part of the Mayor’s 2,021 Acts of Kindness Challenge.
 
During this difficult time, it is more important than ever to support one another and give back to our community. For this reason, Edina Mayor James Hovland launched the 2,021 Acts of Kindness Challenge. Residents are encouraged to submit your act of kindness or nominate someone at BetterTogetherEdina.org/kindnesschallenge. The name of each resident who is nominated will go into a monthly drawing to receive a gift card to a local restaurant from and funded by the Rotary Club of Edina to thank them for their kindness and support local restaurants.
