The Rotary Club of Edina will welcome Jennifer Smith as program speaker at the Thursday, Oct. 27, meeting. Smith is the founder and CEO of Innovative Office Solutions. She will speak about "Reinvention, Risk and ROL." 
Rotarian Ross Peterson will give his classification talk at the meeting.
The dust has settled and Deuces Wild has packed up and we now have memories of how we once were in a New York State of Mind. Thanks to those of you who attended our annual Edina Rotary Foundation Fundraiser & Gala Oct. 1 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Bloomington.
We had nearly 280 attendees with fun entertainment and laughs by many. We are getting close to budget yet still need help meeting our Playbill/Donation goal. If you were not able to attend this year’s Gala and would like to contribute to our fundraiser, use the Playbill/donation form to make a donation. Even if you did attend the Gala and feel inclined to contribute again, we would appreciate it!
Marty Kupper and Past President Jennifer Bennerotte picked three winning raffle tickets at the Edina Rotary Foundation Fundraiser & Gala Oct. 1. The winners are:
Bob Stehlik
Ken Andersen
Paul Peterson
Thanks to everyone who purchased raffle tickets to support the fundraiser! And congratulations to the winners!

Edina, Minnesota, Aug. 24 — The Edina Rotary Foundation is accepting applications from non-profit organizations in Edina and its contiguous communities for grants to be used for capital purchases. Applications are due Oct. 31.
Each year, the Rotary Club of Edina raises money at a fall fundraiser to support its projects and award grants. This year, more than $100,000 was raised for the Club’s service projects and local and international grants.
The Foundation’s Community Service – Local Funding Committee favors grant requests for projects that are tangible and self-perpetuating, will be completed in Edina or a bordering community, create partnerships with other organizations, provide benefits to many and can be leveraged over time.
