The Rotary Club of Edina and the Edina Morningside Rotary Club are embarking on starting and supporting a Rotaract Club. Rotaract clubs consist of young professionals between the ages of 18 and 30. Usually meetings will be held at 6 p.m. the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at The Mezz. Each meeting will feature a speaker and focus on service projects in alignment with Rotary’s mission of “Service Above Self.” 
The next Rotary Vocational Development Group will be Wednesday, Feb. 6. There is no gathering in January 2019.
Once a month, Edina Rotarians have a chance to connect with other club members, and any guests, at the happy hour. This Rotary event is held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at The Mezz at the Lunds & Byerly's in Edina. The meeting will feature a brief presentation from a featured Rotarian, plus time for introductions, networking and questions. The Rotary Club of Edina and EMRC collaborate on this event.
Edina Rotarians, family and friends were ringing at the red kettle for the Salvation Army in December! Here new member Joe Mahoney and Rotarian Toshie Metzger ring the bell at Lunds & Byerly's on France Avenue in Edina. Ringers also were at Jerry's Foods in Edina during the week of Dec. 17.
Thanks to all our volunteers! And special thanks Dan Hallberg and Wayne Harmon for handling all the planning, details and bell hand-offs again this year! 
Celebration and giving was in the air Nov. 21 when Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Edina and the Edina Morningside Rotary Club, along with family and friends, gathered at the Edina Country Club to assemble 80 Thanksgiving baskets. Then teams delivered the baskets to families in need in our community. The annual event was chaired again this year by Michael Stanzak, with help from Mary Hustad

More than 100 Minnesota/Wisconsin high school students joined us at YMCA Camp Ihudhapi Nov. 1-3 for the 2018 Rotary Camp Enterprise. The three-day camp is put on by the Rotary Club of Edina and Rotary Club of Edina Morningside for students in Rotary District 5950 and Rotary District 5960. The students are all sponsored by area Rotary clubs, and learn about the free enterprise system. They work together, with the help of mentors and counselors, to come up with a business plan and presentation. And on the last day, five lucky students won scholarships!

This year's Camp E was chaired by Hein de Hoog of EMRC. Sam Thompson was marketing director for this year's camp. Special thanks to our many, many volunteers! We couldn't do it without you!


Six area high school students won scholarships during Camp Enterprise earlier this month. Camp Enterprise, organized by the Rotary Club of Edina and Edina Morningside Rotary Club, provides high school students with a unique opportunity to learn about leadership, business and the free enterprise system.
