The Rotary Club of Edina now has a “B2B Resource Table” for members to share information about their businesses or other organizations at weekly meetings.
 
Members may place business cards, promotional items, handouts or other materials on the table each week for others to take. Such materials are not allowed on luncheon tables, unless it is related to the featured speaker’s presentation or a club activity. Members who bring items for the B2B Resource Table are responsible for taking them at the end of the meeting; any items left will be thrown away or recycled by the Edina Country Club.
 
The table may be discontinued if it is found to be of little interest to members.
 
For more information, contact Past President Jennifer Bennerotte, jbennerotte@EdinaRotary.org.
 
 
Rotarians were busy last week, Feb. 6–10, reading to third-graders at Creek Valley Elementary School in Edina. This is the second year that Rotarians have taken the Andy & Elmer’s Apple Dumpling Adventure books to students in Edina schools. It is the story of a young entrepreneur who starts an apple dumpling business. With the guidance of a mysterious voice, conveying the Four-Way Test, he turns his venture into a wonderful success and makes friends along the way.
 
The amazing work that The Rotary Foundation does throughout the world was honored recently. The Rotary Foundation was named the World's Outstanding Foundation for 2016 by the Association of Fundraiser Professionals. Rotary Club of Edina members support TRF with their yearly donations, and our club develops and contributes to TRF projects around the world. 
 
For more information on The Rotary Foundation, go here, or contact our club's TRF Director, Sue Spalding.
The next Rotary Vocational Development Group will be Wednesday, April 5. The speaker at the meeting will be André Brewer. 
 
Once a month, Edina Rotarians have a chance to connect with other club members, and any guests, at the happy hour. This Rotary event is held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at The Mezz at the Lunds & Byerly's in Edina. The meeting will feature a brief presentation from a featured Rotarian, plus time for introductions, networking and questions. The Rotary Club of Edina and EMRC collaborate on this event.
