Rotary Gathering 5/25/16

Even with the rain… it was a beautiful day to gather together.  We paid tribute to all those who have served in the military, including several of our Rotary members.  Thank you!

Warren White was our program today.  He shared the mission and information about the Water Tower Food Shelf in St. Croix Falls.  It was started up in 1990 with the vision of one of our own Rotary members at the time, Don Doane.  Now it feeds anywhere from 450 to 600 people per month!  Great job.SOM Jessica Bjerke

Jessica Bjerke, Osceola Senior and May Student of the Month, is the Rotary Ethics Essay contest winner with her paper on “Ethics in Healthcare.”  Congratulations Jessica on your Rotary scholarship!  Jessica is pictured on the right with Gary LaMirande, our Rotary Club’s Vocational Chair.  Thanks to Gary for coordinating this.

Frances KerberSome sad news is that Fran Kerber has decided to retire from the club.  She is such an inspiration to all of us with her wisdom and wit.  Personally, I love her philosophy on life: “All life is a gift from God, embrace it.”  Fran welcomes visitors so please don’t be shy.  We will miss seeing you every Wednesday Fran, but you will remain in our hearts as a valued Rotarian friend always (and you are welcome to visit us any time!).

Other announcements included information on the upcoming Wannigan Days events.  Please sign up to help.  Drink tickets are available for purchase.  Deadline is June 3.  Thanks Rebecca for being the contact and donating all the printing for these!

Car Raffle tickets were passed out and ready to sell.  If you’d like to buy out your share just talk to Warren and he has some deals for you, otherwise… get selling.

I’ll leave you with a little quote, “Positive thoughts generate positive feelings and attract positive life experiences.”
