Is effective networking one of your New Year’s resolutions? Then you want to put Wednesday, January 29 on your calendar and meet Rotarians from the five neighboring clubs that form Area 7 (Buffalo, Maple Grove, Monticello, Rogers, St. Michael-Albertville) as well as district leaders and other Rotarians. The event is free! If you are a member of another Rotary club or are a community guest, please RSVP to Area 7 AG Lee Ashfeld.
Our first post-holiday meeting is noon on Wednesday, January 8 when we meet in Cabela’s event room (2nd floor). There will be a buffet meal with beverage for $11/person. Please RSVP to Gaylene Olson if you are a member or guest attending that day.
Come swap holiday stories with your Rotary friends and take advantage of in-store sales!
“People had to push their bills into the kettle because it was full by 10 a.m.,” exclaimed co-president Dave Christain about his Salvation Army bell ringing shift at Cub Foods. And guess what? The experience was repeated for Rotary volunteers early and late in the afternoon.
“Greeting people with a ‘Merry Christmas’ and engaging with them made a difference,” said Floyd Ingersoll.
This is the second year Rogers Rotary has staffed the bell at Cub Foods in Rogers.
In an effort to meet all members’ scheduling needs, Rogers Rotary will meet at NOON on the second Wednesday of each month.

Cheri Ashfeld was elected to be co-president with Dave Christian. “Dave will remain our #1 cheerleader in the community!” Ashfeld said. “My goal is to convey a stronger message of the value Rotary brings to Rogers.” Visit our club!
