President San Asato and his wife, Sheila Asato, rode in Dave Hatzung's convertible in the Fourth of July parade in Edina. Joining San and Sheila were Rotarians carrying the "Rotarians are Every Day Super Heroes" banner and handing out pencils and candy, while accompanied by costumed super heroes! Thanks to Dan Hennen, Josh Sprague and family and Greg Yoch for handling parade duties, along with San and Dave! Other Rotarians also took part in the parade, such as Tim Murphy and Grandview Tire & Auto and Ann and Jim Platt and Pets Are Inn, and many others. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Edina Rotary Foundation recently awarded nearly $25,000 in grants to 15 local organizations. The organizations have been visiting our weekly meetings to pick up the grant checks and share stories about their organizations and the people who will benefit from the funds. 
 
Money for grants awarded by the Edina Rotary Foundation is raised at an annual fall fundraiser and gala and donations made throughout the year.
