Rotary Club of Edina will welcome Marna Anderson as program speaker at the Thursday, Feb. 16, meeting. Anderson is director of development and communications for Nonviolent Peaceforce. She will speak about "Unarmed Protection of Civilians in Violent Conflict." 
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 annual Edina Rotary Bowling Event was Jan. 28. More than 40 Rotarians and guests (including Youth Exchange student Justine Onama) gathered at Park Tavern in St. Louis Park to dine, compare custom bowling shirts and be divided up into teams for the cutthroat competition. Door prizes were given out (many great door prizes!) and gutter balls and strikes were thrown. After the pins had settled, the winners and losers were awarded their trophies. 

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, March 1. The speaker at the meeting will be Rotary Club of Edina President Ann Platt. 
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.
Periodically we feature a newer member of the Rotary Club of Edina on our website. The Rotary Club of Edina welcomed Hannelore Brucker as a member in July 2016. Hannelore's sponsor to the club was Josh Sprague. Click on the link to get to know Hannelore...
