Dear Rotary District 5950 Club Executives and Directors:
I am very excited to share with all of you the news that our district is launching The Rotary Club of Minnesota Veterans!  This will be the first Rotary Club for veterans serving veterans in the world!
Click "Read More" for all the details and first meeting date.
I would like to personally invite each of you to ask your club's members to invite their friends and family to become one of the founding members of this new club, which will give them an unique opportunity to connect with other veterans and business leaders while serving our local communities together and helping those in need.
Our meetings are currently scheduled for the second and fourth Thursdays of each month, at St. Peters Edina:  5421 France Avenue South, Edina, Minnesota 55410; and, will run from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Rotary is non-religious and non-political organization - we are simply using the facility because of the generosity of its Pastor, Mark Shockey, who is a former Rotarian of 30 years.
Our first meeting will take place on September 12th and will include a discussion of our guiding principles – Camaraderie, Service, and Peace – along with sharing ideas for projects and events we would like to participate in.  Our District Governor will be delivering a Rotary 101 presentation at our September 26th meeting.
Click here and you will find a club brochure with more information about the group and here for an application form for those who want to join.  If you or any of your clubs' members or thier contacts would like to be a part of this amazing new Rotary Club and have the opportunity to help shape the mission of the group, please have them complete the attached application and return it timely to me at:
Thank you for all you do for Rotary!
Thomas A. Gump
