The 2018 Chrysanne Manoles Women In Leadership Award will be presented this Thursday, May 24, at the Rotary Club of Edina meeting at the Edina Country Club. This is the ninth Women in Leadership Award given, named after Chrysanne Manoles, the first female member of our club. She is still active in Rotary today. In Manoles’ honor and to celebrate the work of women in the community, the Rotary Club of Edina established an annual women’s leadership award in 2008.
The speaker will be the 2017 Women in Leadership Award winner, Lauren Morse-Wendt.
Rotarian Susan Stiles will give her Classification Talk at the meeting.
For more information about the the Women in Leadership Award, contact club Past President Jennifer Bennerotte, 612-201-3467 or jbennerotte@EdinaRotary.org.
The May 3 Rotary Club of Edina meeting was an Opioid Awareness Workshop for Rotarians and members of the public. Our club—along with Rotary District 5950 and the Rotary Clubs of Bloomington, Buffalo, Eden Prairie Noon, North Minneapolis and Rogers—sponsored the workshop. The event featured speakers from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, Hennepin County Sheriff's Department, Steve Rummler Hope Network, TRIA and Verde Technologies discussing all aspects of the opioid crisis.

The next Rotary Vocational Development Group will be Wednesday, June 6.
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 featured speaker at the June 6 gathering will be Margaret Johnson of Edina Morningside Rotary Club. The Rotary Club of Edina and EMRC collaborate on this event.
Note that there will be no Rotary Happy Hour in July, due to the July 4 holiday.
The Edina Rotary Foundation recently awarded another $2,800 in grants to two local organizations.

Earlier this year, the Foundation awarded more than $24,000 to eight local organizations. With funding still available, the Foundation gave the Muscular Dystrophy Association $800 for custom water bottles to be distributed at its summer camp for children. Better Futures of Minnesota was given $2,000 for various tools to employ men who desire to turn their lives around.

Grants will be presented at upcoming meetings of the Rotary Club of Edina, which typically meets 12:15 p.m. Thursdays at the Edina Country Club, 5100 Wooddale Ave.
Money for grants awarded by the Edina Rotary Foundation is raised at an annual fall fundraiser and gala and donations made throughout the year.
