Edina Morningside Rotarians along with the Edina Rotary Club, families and friends, enjoyed lunch, fellowship and the opportunity to help those who are not as fortunate.   75 Thanksgiving Baskets were prepared and delivered to families in need on Wednesday, November 25th.


Rotary Youth Exchange in our District is alive and vibrant.  On Saturday November 21st,  70 nervous young people from around the District came for interviews along with their parents.  It was an exciting day which included the Country Fair.  All of our inbound students from around the world set up a Country Fair where it was their opportunity to convince the future exchange students that their country was best.  It was an exciting day and a new batch of Rotary ambassadors was hatched!


A great day to honor our men and women who have served and who are currently serving.   Thanks to Retired Major General Paul Rehkamp and the Honerable Amy Klobuchar for helping make this a very special event.   A special thanks goes out to our Rotary President-Elects, including Tom, Gump, for organizing a great event.


Our new President, Heather Haen Anderson, introduced the Edina Morningside Rotary club to the theme of the 2015-2016 Rotary year: "Be a Gift to the World." Throughout the year, Heather will be highlighting club members who are a visible gift to the world.  Using your talents, expertise, and leadership, Rotary members worldwide are asked to be gifts to the world throughout this Rotary year.
