Rotary Speakers for April
by Larson, Bradley

The Vocational Committee is in charge of the April speakers.


We are going to do a Poverty Awareness emphasis. This is replacing Law Day.


April 17th Roger Deneen Poverty and the Disabled (Roger works for the Dept. of Human Services).



April 24 Rotary will be at the Minnco center. We are inviting others from the community ( like Law Day ) Rich Smith the Executive Director of Family Pathways will be speaking on Poverty and East Central Minnesota. Thanks for advertising this. I believe we will all find this informative and inspiring.


Wednesday May 14th is our Bus Driver Appreciation Day.

All Rotarians: We need to come up with a slate of officers for 2014-2015. We are already behind the times with a lack of a president elect for our current year. Someone has to step up and help out our club. You will have support from past presidents and others. Please volunteer today. We need a President and President Elect. Please help your Rotary Club, thx.

We are still in need of host families for Camille for the upcoming year.

•     Jackie Moen, Howie Lewis and Bill Berg drafted letter re the legacy grant for the band shell.

•    Letter reviewed and Pres. Charles said we are committing to the grant application.  The commitment is $20,000 the first year and $5,000 for three years – total $35,000.

•    Question:  if they don't get the grant and go ahead and build it anyway, will we go ahead and give them $20,000 the first year and $5,000 for three years?

•    Brad:  Possibly  look for additional fundraisers and engage the committee.

•    Roger:  We are good for the $20,000.  To some extent we need a focus for the committee to say why “you” are coming to the The Taste – is a committee project.

•    Clark:  We have almost $40,000; Roger believes $35,000 more realistic.

•    Jean:  Need a different letter – indicating Rotary a sponsor and we will receive recognition.

•    Roger:  City wants to stay on good side of  us.

•    Charles:  We need to send a letter to the City by the 25th of October.

•    Roger:  Made a motion that we accept stipulations in the letter and that we would donate $35,000 over the next four years for the purpose of building the amphitheater at the Cambridge City Park, providing the legacy grant goes through.

•    Kirstin:  Seconded the motion.

•    If the grant does not go through, then all money off the table if the City does not get the grant to help with the bandshell.

•    Clark:  We will hold the check until the bids go through. 

•    Charles:  With the commitment of $35,000 we are going to have to do something else for the money.

•    Board voted on the motion and carried.

•    Brad:  Would like to serve on the committee to support other fundraisers.

           We need a feature story where we can collect money through a website.

•    Lions and Masons suggested as possibly assisting. 

•    Charles:  Board to go over budget at next week's meeting.

Meeting adjourned at 11:45 a.m.
