Join us for a magical evening as Rotary Club of Edina is a proud sponsor of the 1st John Philip Sousa Memorial Band’s Annual Torchlight Concert on Sunday evening, August 14th, at Centennial Lakes in Edina. Bring your entire family to this free, fun-filled evening of timeless entertainment. At 6:30 p.m. on the lake promenade step back in time to watch strolling musicians with a Dixieland sound, a live organ grinder and magician, see model boats and Pennyfarthing bicycles, antique autos, and enjoy 25-cent ice cream cones, 5-cent balloons and more. At 8:30 p.m. is the Sousa Band Concert. Rotary gets a spotlight on stage as the show starts. Fireworks follow the concert. Centennial Lakes Park has free parking at 75th and France Avenue South, Edina.
Edina Rotary Clubs are looking for Host Families for 2022-23 School Year
Become a Host Family TODAY!! Just a few months can turn into an experience that lasts a lifetime! Edina’s Rotary Clubs are looking for families that wish to expand their world and learn more about another culture while sharing their culture with a Rotary Exchange Student. The primary requirement is a willingness to open your heart and home to an exchange student and accept him or her as your own. Family makeup is less important than a desire to host. Families with or without kids, empty-nesters, single parents.... it’s all a part of the experience! YOU ARE WHAT WE NEED!!
Sept 11 to Sept 22, 2022 Jon Kaufman, a Rotarian friend of The Rotary Club of Edina, is doing a Kenya trip and would love for us to help promote the trip. Even better, he would love to have someone from our club be a part of the exciting service, soul and safari expedition. A detailed flyer with all the Info can be found HERE.
