Neighboring clubs become new Area 7

When Rogers Rotary chartered in 2006, the club joined District 5950’s Area 4 — clubs that were “generations” of o.ne club sponsoring the next. (Maple Grove Rotary sponsored Rogers.)

Now in the 2019-20 Rotary year, new Area alignments bring Rogers and Maple Grove into a new Area 7 where they’ll partner with neighbors St. Michael-Albertville, Monticello and Buffalo clubs. It is an opportunity for new relationships, new networking, and a tighter geographic territory.

For information about Area 7 clubs, contact Assistant Governor Lee Ashfeld. Or check out the meeting time and location of any District 5950 club at this link.

Paul Harris Fellowships awarded to Cheryl, Marc

Rotary giving has two components:  sweat equity in local service projects, and financial support of The Rotary Foundation (TRF) which leverages gifts and matching funds to create a huge impact worldwide. Wednesday’s meeting celebrated Cheryl Helwig (Counselor Realty) and Marc Macke (Agency 10 Insurance) for TRF donations reaching the next $1,000 level. Congratulations and thank you both!
