The Rotary Club of Edina will welcome Scott F. Wolter as the program speaker at the Thursday, Dec. 1, meeting. Wolter is a forensic geologist and petrographer and will speak about "The Kensington Rune Stone Mystery Solved." He is founder and president of American Petrographic Services, headquartered in St. Paul. He is also an author and host of History channel's television show, "American Unearthed."
 
New member Jen Tregarthen will be officially inducted into the club at the meeting.
Rotary Club of Edina members are encouraged to bring unwrapped gifts, gift cards or cash or check donations to the Dec. 1 and 8 meetings! Rotarian Jean Morrison is once again spearheading the effort to spread holiday cheer in our community by donating gifts to families in need this holiday season. This year the Rotary Holiday Giving Program will donate gifts to Cornerstone's Holiday Shop and VEAP's Holiday Toy Drive. Donations can also be brought to the Rotary Holiday Party Dec. 15. Members are encouraged to bring donations to the Dec. 1 meeting so that they can be donated before the deadline for the Cornerstone Holiday Shop.
 
Contact Jean for ideas for gifts or more information about the program.
The next Rotary Vocational Development Group will be Monday, Dec. 12. Note the change of date for this gathering. The speaker at the meeting will be Dick Crockett of the Edina Community Foundation. He is a member of the Edina Morningside Rotary Club. 
 
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.
The Rotary Club of Edina joined with Edina Morningside Rotary Club and the Interact Club of Edina High School Nov. 23 to assemble and deliver 77 Thanksgiving Baskets to families in need in our community. Almost 170 Rotarians, friends and family gathered to help with the event!

Periodically we feature a newer member of the Rotary Club of Edina on our website. The Rotary Club of Edina welcomed Tom Cook as a member in April 2016. Tom's sponsor to the club was David Clynes. Click on the link to get to know Tom...
The light drizzle Saturday, Oct. 29, could do nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of almost 100 Camp Enterprise students and the dozens of Rotarian volunteers as they cheered the final keynote speaker and waited to learn who wowed the volunteer venture capitalists and who would be awarded scholarships. With only five winners, the latter was a tough choice because every student hit it out of the park. According to one venture capitalist, "This group is going to fix the world's problems!"
 
Many thanks to the dedicated group of volunteers who made 2016 Camp Enterprise a rousing success. Sam Thompson is already on the lookout for help for 2017!

The dust has settled and Deuces Wild has packed up and we now have memories of how we once were in a New York State of Mind. Thanks to those of you who attended our annual Edina Rotary Foundation Fundraiser & Gala Oct. 1 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Bloomington.
 
We had nearly 280 attendees with fun entertainment and laughs by many. We are getting close to budget yet still need help meeting our Playbill/Donation goal. If you were not able to attend this year’s Gala and would like to contribute to our fundraiser, use the Playbill/donation form to make a donation. Even if you did attend the Gala and feel inclined to contribute again, we would appreciate it!
