Board to review project funding requests

The Rotary Club of Rogers board of directors will consider new funding requests at its April 10 meeting. Several local groups have presented to the club membership and submitted formal requests.

Rogers Rotary’s annual golf tournament (on June 11, 2019!) raises the money the club uses to support local programs. Money is also contributed to Rotary International and the local District 5950 for worldwide projects. In recent years, that has included:

KidPack supplemental weekend food
STRIVE mentorship program at Rogers HS
CornerHouse forensic interviews and support for abuse victims
CROSS Services
PolioPlus vaccinations
Veterans Memorial
Salvation Army bell ringing
364 Sandwiches for the homeless
Feed My Starving Children

Register for the golf tournament and help support these local causes. Or visit our club meeting on any Wednesday at 7 a.m. at the Rogers Community Room and learn more about our commitment to serving the community!

Join us Tuesday, June 11 — for the 2019 Rogers Rotary Golf Tournament at Fox Hollow Golf Course in St. Michael.

Golf will be followed by a delicious dinner, raffle drawings and awards ceremony. Last year we raised $10,000 in donations that went right back to our community. Rogers Rotary funds: Beds for Kids, Warm Heads-Warm Hands-Warm Hearts, STRIVE mentorship program at Rogers High School, scholarships, and so much more.

Golf includes green fee, cart and dinner. Register here. Rogers Rotary 501(c)3 document for taxes.

Club welcomes Mueller, Lamkin

We’re excited to welcome Andy Lamkin (left) and Aaron Mueller and to full membership in Rogers Rotary.

Andy is the Operations Director at CROSS Services. He is instrumental in helping us assemble and distribute the monthly KidPack food bags that supplement elementary school students’ meals on weekends.

Aaron is an electrical engineer with Design Tree Engineering & Land Surveying. He and his wife, Lisa, were a welcome part of the enthusiastic Horse Game participants at Game Night.


Guests made Game Night extra fun!

Our annual Game Night brought together past, present and future Rogers Rotarians for a rousing evening of Horse, Texas Hold’em, and bean bag toss. Congratulations to Fay Kirscht (President Lenny’s wife) who won the traveling trophy! The club thanks Marc Macke, Agency 10 Insurance, for donating the door prizes — Twins tickets at two home games.
