2019 Annual Gala
Thank you for supporting this year's Edina Rotary Foundation Fundraiser & Gala on Saturday, October 5 at the Doubletree by Hilton Bloomington!  It was a huge success because of members like you!  All the money raised goes to our Foundation, the Edina Rotary Foundation, and supports all our local and international service projects and grants.
Club Headlines
As commissioner of the state’s principal workforce and economic development agency, Commissioner Grove brings a wealth of private sector and civic experience to the Department of Employment and Economic Development. Originally from Northfield, Minnesota, Commissioner Grove is focused on growing the state’s workforce, closing the opportunity gap and providing businesses with the help they need to grow, stay and thrive.
The City of Edina has more than 200 miles of local roads that are used by residents, businesses, customers and guests. Eventually, old roads need to be reconstructed. This work can cost in the range of $600,000 to $1.5 million per mile. Typically, the cost of this work is borne by the property owners along the new road.
The City is considering funding alternatives that lessen the impact on the immediate property owners. One of the options being evaluated is the creation of a new local option sales tax. The additional sales tax would be 0.5%, equating to an additional 50 cents on each $100 purchase of taxable goods.

It’s still summer, but it’s not too soon to start thinking about Christmas—especially the Peterson Family Christmas Show that is!!!

This year, the Peterson Family Christmas Show will be held at the Hopkins Center for the Arts on Saturday, December 14, 2019, at 8:00 p.m

We have made arrangements with the Hopkins Center for the Arts to hold a “Rotary” block of 40 tickets which are all together in a great area for enjoying the show. The Rotary block tickets are $34/each (after $5 discount), and are available on a first come – first served basis until the end of the day on Saturday, October  12th, after which any unsold tickets in the block will be released to the public. So, if you want to see this great show, you should move quickly since we expect the tickets to go fast.

Camp Enterprise is a three-day camp for high school juniors and seniors designed to introduce students to the free enterprise system and encourage entrepreneurship and ethical business practices. The experience is often life changing. Each year, at least five (5) $1,000 higher education scholarships are awarded to students of exceptional merit. In total, Camp Enterprise has awarded more than $80,000 in scholarships since its inception. We are looking forward to another successful year. If you're interested in volunteering please see Stefan Smith, Sam Thompson or Becci Michalski.
