Let's be of service, Rotarians! It is time for the Rotary Club of Edina's bi-annual visit to Feed My Starving Children in Chanhassen. The date for our spring volunteering event is Saturday, May 4, from 9 to 11 a.m. Feed My Starving Children is at 18732 Lake Drive East in Chanhassen, right off Highway 5 and Dell Road. We will pack enough food to feed over 60 people for a year in just two hours. Rotarians are invited to bring family and friends and any child over the age of 5 is welcome. This is a great family event.

Please register online on our website so that we have the 25 people we need to fill our commitment. You can also sign up through Feed My Starving Children by going here.

For more information or questions, contact Mike Sitek, chair of the event.
