Rotation Day is Tuesday, February 20th.  We will not have a regular meeting on this day.  Instead, three Club 10 members will host fellow club members at their place of business. So, please plan on joining fellow Rotations at an “off-site” location.

For more information or to register, click on the link below for the location of your choice. This will take you directly to the registration page for that host site. Please pre-register as some sites have limited space.

What is Rotation Day?
When Paul Harris founded Rotary in 1905, meetings were held at the members’ place of business – rotating from member  company to member company – hence the name “Rotary.”  For our club, Rotation Day is an event which brings us back to our “roots” and gives us the opportunity to gain new insights into the vocational challenges and business issues which are unique to our fellow Rotarians.

RSVP today for the Joint Meeting with Minneapolis #9, which replaces our Tuesday, February 13th meeting. Guests are welcome!

Since 1886, the Saint Paul Winter Carnival continues to bring family-friendly events and community pride to Saint Paul and the Twin Cities metro area.The Saint Paul Winter Carnival is the oldest winter festival in the United States. Several Eastern newspaper correspondents kindled the start of the Winter Carnival by visiting Saint Paul in the fall of 1885 and returning home to report that Minnesota, in general, was another Siberia, unfit for human habitation. A group of business owners decided to retaliate by creating a wintertime festival which would showcase all the beauty of Minnesota winters.  Today, the Saint Paul Winter Carnival attracts over 250,000 visitors a year and has an approximately $2 – $3 million dollar economic impact to the city of St. Paul and the State of Minnesota.

President Jerry Faletti, Lethert,Skwira, Schultz,  convened the meeting at the InterContinental Hotel St. Paul. Dr. Bob Jones provided the pre-meeting music and opening song lead by David Laird, MPC,. Nancy Brady, Neighborhood House, reminded members of the number of children and families in the world living on less than $2.00 in the inspirational address. Micheal-Jon Pease, Park Square Theatre, lead introductions of guests and visiting Rotarians. President Jerry thanked meeting volunteers, Greeters  Al Zdrazil, MN Attorney General Office, ret. and Jonah Yang, Executive Protection Group, and Scribe: Trixie Golberg, Lifetrack. Thursday’s Fellowship meeting will include a conversation on future meeting structure and location all members are invited to share thoughts with Chuck Standfuss, Protocol 46. Jerry announced January Birthdays, as included in this week’s Hub, and thanked David Dominick, St. Paul YMCA, for the homemade cupcakes.

When award-winning author Jim Kosmo was ten, his father set the family’s house on fire before departing for the early shift at the tire factory in Eau Claire, Wisc. His father’s imaginary friend told him to do it. Kosmo, his sister and his mother escaped, but their cat, Tippy, died. His father went to the insane asylum for 27 years. Two years after the fire, Kosmo was sexually assaulted by his Boy Scout leader.
 
Somehow, he dealt with these childhood monsters, and a couple of bullies who did their best to humiliate and bruise him at school. Eventually, he moved forward to a successful life as husband, father, journalist, town mayor, and business leader.  Drawing on more than 70 years of good times and bad times, Kosmo wrote Monsters in the Hallway, a fictional murder mystery that delves into the challenges of mental illness, childhood sexual assault, and bullying.
