The Rotary Club of Edina, along with support of Rotary District 5950 and several area Rotary Clubs, will host a Opioid Awareness Workshop on Thursday, May 3, at the Edina Country Club. The workshop is open to Rotary members to register now through April 15. After that, the general public will be invited to register if there is still space available. 

Edina Rotary members are encouraged to register themselves and any guests before April 15. We need a firm count to plan for the event.  Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m. Check-in begins at 11 a.m. Cost for the event is the same as a regular Rotary Club of Edina meeting: Senior Active and Honorary members pay $20 at the door, as do any guests. Regular members have already paid for the meal on their quarterly invoice. 

The sponsoring clubs for the event are Bloomington, Buffalo, Eden Prairie Noon, Edina, North Minneapolis and Rogers. Rotary members from clubs other than Rotary Club of Edina will sign up through their home club. They will not pay at the door, their club will be invoiced for their lunch. Other guests can also register online on our website, and will pay at the door. The last day to register or change registration for members of the pubic is April 27.

The workshop takes the place of the regular Rotary Club of Edina meeting that day.
