There will be no Rotary happy hour in July. After taking a month off, the Rotary Vocational Development Group will return Wednesday, Aug. 3. 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 speaker at the Aug. 3 gathering will be Dr. Casey Moore, a member of EMRC. The Rotary Club of Edina and EMRC collaborate on this event.
