In Manoles’ honor and to celebrate the work of women in the community, the Rotary Club of Edina established an annual women’s leadership award in 2008. Previous winners include Dr. Laurel Wills, Ann Byrne, Donna Tilsner, Katey Taylor, Kim Foote, Kris Marshall, Lauren Morse-Wendt, Lexi Reed Holtum, Hope Melton and Kathy Rendleman.

Stephanie serves on the board of Edina Give and Go and is a member of the COVID-19 Relief Committee. Both are deeply involved with the Junior Diabetes Research Fund Organization. Bring a guest or two, this dynamic duo is sure to bring new insight and knowledge to the relevant and discussion worthy subject of race, equity and inclusion.

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.
