“The clubs are where Rotary happens,” says Maloney, an attorney. He aims to support and strengthen clubs at the community level, preserve Rotary’s culture as a service-oriented membership organization, and test new regional approaches for growth. “With the eradication of polio, recognition for Rotary will be great and the opportunities will be many,” he says. “We have the potential to become the global powerhouse for doing good.”

JANUARY 29, 2019 ROTARY IN REVIEW:  Winter Carnival
President John Chandler introduced the Winter Carnival Royal Family today,  January 29.  Music was by the Band (Dick Nicholson, Susan O'Neil, Joe Kovarik, Bill Given, Ed Coleman) who played "When the Court  Goes Marching."  Greeter was Joe Lawder, scribe was Laurie Murphy, Jason Bradshaw did the Inspirational Minute and the Pledge, and Bob Cardinal did the introductions of visiting Rotarians. Bob had us all hug one person also!  
We had 3 Youth Exchange students there as well that Linda Mulhern introduced: Returning YE Student Greta Peterson Nafziger, and current inbound YE Students Marta Latorre (St. Paul Sunrise) and Anna Mori. The Sunrise Rotary Club had 3 representatives there also.  Jay Pfaender was the Master of Ceremonies and introduced, according to Royal ways of introduction,  the Prime Minister this year: Megan Quiggle.  Then Megan as Prime Minister introduced all the Royal Guard, then the 4 winds and the princesses. Then she introduced the King , Monte Johnson, and Queen, Alison Gunter. 
The King said a few words about volunteering in one’s community and pointed out that we Rotarians do that as well.  Community is volunteering with a heart.  He will make his reign about volunteering in the Community. He said we are training the next generations of Leaders.  The Carnival is partnering with the Boys Scout this year.  Look for upcoming things they will do together.  The Kings Guard gave out commorative coins to everyone.  Then the Royal Family knighted: John Chandler, Jay Pfaender, Jason DeKeuster and YE Students Marta and Anna. 
Don’t forget its WILD NIGHT on February 24th.  The Camp Bar will host a “Stock Market “ happy hour game on February 7th, starting at 4:00 PM.
Respectfully submitted,






Laurie Murphy
