Club Headlines
After 40 years of performing, songwriting and give audiences all he's got in the Twin Cities and the midwest region, Mick Sterling has left his unique mark in Minnesota music. His signature sound of Soul, Rock and Blues is finding new audiences in 2020 as he produces and performs in shows that honor the artists that influenced him to sold out shows everywhere he performs them.

As Founder and Director of The 30-Days Foundation, Sterling has been instrumental in providing assistance to nearly 99,000 requests for assistance for Minnesota residents ranging from feeding the homeless, payment of utility bills, rent payments, medical bills, grocery and fuel cards and many more real-life financial crisis issues with the donations being paid only to the service provider requiring payment.

Fellow Rotary Club of Edina Members:  

In light of the risks posed by the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) epidemic, and in consideration of group event cancellations by the City of Edina and many other local organizations, we have decided to cancel April Rotary club meetings. All regular members will receive a statement credit of $90 for the missed meals on their Q4 invoice. 

I want to thank my fellow officers including Secretary Joe Hayes, Treasurer Michael Stanzak, President-Elect Sam Thompson, and Past President John Flynn, along with Past President Jennifer Bennerotte, for their sage advice and good counsel. 

As this historical event continues to evolve, we will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated about the plan for April meetings. For the moment, please take care of yourselves, and follow the best practices for preventing infections on the CDC website here: http://bit.ly/38UJLMk.

Please feel free to call me anytime at 612-501-0252, or send an email to joshsprague7@icloud.com.

Yours in Service,

Josh Sprague, President

In this trying time of uncertainty during the Covid-19 virus pandemic, we in Edina Rotary have an opportunity to do what we do best – reach out and serve.  We’re better together.
 
Edina Rotary Helping Hands is an initiative aimed at supporting others by reaching out to check in, connect and assist with specific needs of our senior Rotarians and others in need during this time of quarantine.
 
As fellow Rotarians, here’s what we can do to help:
  • Help with grocery shopping and running errands
  • Pickup up prescriptions
  • Pick up and deliver take-out food
  • Trip to Post Office
  • Provide a ride to appointments
  • Check-in call or email
  • Send a postal greeting card to say you’re thinking about someone
Of course, we will do all of this in the safest and most responsible ways by following the Red Cross recommendations during this situation.
 
How this works …
  • Are you interested in helping? 
  • Do you know of an Edina Rotarian who might benefit from this (either yourself or someone else?) 
If you’d like to be a helping hand or need a helping hand contact Jean Morrison at 612-804-2409 or jean@jeanmorrisonhr.com
 
Thank you for lending your time, hands and heart to Edina Rotary Helping Hands.
 
It’s important to remember what makes us Rotarians:  Service and connecting the world.  Now is the time to come together and be there for one another.
