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.

The Rotary Club of Edina will hold a Vocational Day meeting at noon, Thursday, Aug. 4, at Express Metals, 8094 Excelsior Blvd., Hopkins. Lunch and beverages will be provided.

Express Metals recycling is a family-owned and operated business which opened in January 2010. Todd Bollig, an Eden Prairie Rotarian, is the owner. The meeting will include a presentation about the business and tours of the facility.

Rotarians are encouraged to carpool to the meeting with other members of the club if possible.

Please register if you plan to attend so we can get a count for lunch and planning at the venue. The registration deadline is Friday, July 29. Due to limited space, registration is limited to Rotary Club of Edina members.

What's more fun and entertaining than a Sunday afternoon watching our own St. Paul Saints baseball team?! And a picnic at the ballpark to boot! There is still time to reserve your spots to watch the St. Paul Saints at CHS Field near third-base Sunday afternoon, Aug. 14. And we also have made arrangements for a picnic on-site catered by the ballpark. The picnic starts at 3:30 p.m. and the game begins at 5:05 p.m.
There are a limited number of seats available for this event. Please register yourself and any guests online by Friday, Aug. 5.
