Edina Rotary Club earned the 2019-2020 Rotary Citation Platinum for achieving goals that strengthen Rotary and our club. Goals include increasing club membership, developing sustainable service projects, giving to The Rotary Foundation, and building awareness of Rotary in your community. For more information on the prestigious award and the goals we met visit https://rcc.rotary.org/#/goals and click on the Goal Center, 2019-2020 year, and Rotary Citation tab.
Each November members of the Rotary Club of Edina, along with members of the Edina Morningside Rotary Club, prepare and deliver Thanksgiving meals to families in need throughout the Twin Cities region. A roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberries, potatoes and gravy along with vegetables, oranges, even a delicious pie, make their way to area homes via active Rotarians and their families. With a side of warm knit mittens to help with the coming winter, these Thanksgiving Baskets bring some brightness and joy into the holiday season.  Look for further details, your invitation to sign up and safety procedures delivered to your email next week.
Edina Country Club is open and allowing us to meet in person. REGISTRATION and MASKS ARE REQUIRED. Please register HERE if you plan on attending in-person and will be having lunch with us. Doors open at 12:15 p.m.  Register HERE is you would like to attend via ZOOM beginning at 12:30 p.m.
 
As we plan to meet live during these very unpredictable times, we need to adhere to guidelines established by the Edina Country Club, the city of Edina and our Governor. Your safety is our number one priority and we understand that not everyone will feel comfortable attending our in-person meetings. With this in mind, we will continue to offer the virtual meetings via Zoom for our July/August meetings and extend them for a longer period of time if needed. Advance reservations will be required for both the live and Zoom meeting options.  Click "See More" to review the guidelines.
