As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolves around us, we want to take precautions to ensure that the health and safety of our members is a top priority.
 
At this time, the Board has made the difficult decision to cancel all in person Rotary Meetings until further notice. Rotarians please check your emails for information regarding virtual Zoom Meetings possibilities. 
 
We will continue to monitor this situation and communicate with you promptly.  For up to date club information, please continue to check this website.

May 11th was a busy day as Rotarians, shovels in hand, planted trees and shrubs with the City of Monticello Parks Department along the pathway off Chelsea Road.  At the Bertram Chain of Lakes Regional Park Edible Garden volunteers placed blueberry, raspberry, and strawberry plants. Twenty five apple and plum trees were also planted at the site.

   

THIS CLASS COULD SAVE A LIFE.

And it's fun too!

High school-age drivers: Watch for the fall Monticello Community Education catalog for upcoming dates and then call a friend to join Alejandro Sanchez and fellow experienced race drivers for one of these classes. You'll learn and practice skills required to control your vehicle under both adverse and everyday driving conditions.
With funding assistance from the Monticello Rotary Club, you pay only $55 for a class that is worth much more.
To register, contact Alejandro at 763-262-6366 or email: asanchez@sherbtel.net. Teen Accident Avoidance Driving Courses are held at Eastview School in Monticello
ImageDan C. and Michele just returned from the North Central President Elect Traning Seminar this past weekend in Des Moines, Iowa. Along with learning, sharing and meeting a lot of great people, they also had the pleasure of hearing Rotary International President-elect Ron Burton speak at Friday night’s dinner. Pres.-Elect Burton is from Oklahoma and has been a Rotarian since 1979.
Engage Rotary. Change Lives.
Vic had been an active member of our club since 1976. On Jan. 14th, Vic spoke to the Club regarding his illness and how much Rotary meant to him. His words of advice that day: “Reinvest yourself in your community and do what Rotary does best...help your fellow man.”

Vic, you will be missed.

Visitation was held Wednesday, April 17, 2013 from 4 to 7pm at Peterson-Grimsmo Chapel, 250 E. Broadway, Monticello. A Celebration of Life will be held Thursday, April 18, at 11am at Resurrection Lutheran Church, 9300 Jason Ave. NE, Monticello.

One of the goals of the Monticello Rotary Club is to continue to build our organization for the future. That means introducing the Rotary concept to a younger audience and engaging them in a way that will lead toward recruiting the next generation of Rotarians.

Although we currently have initiatives that are reaching out into Millienial and Gen X demographics, we wanted to make sure we captured the interest of even younger generations by expanding engagement with our local high school.

As a result of this thinking, in September 2012, Chris Kruse, a past president of The Monticello Rotary, and Tara Rosh, at Monticello High School, approached students to determine their interest in forming an Interact Club, Rotary International’s model for Rotary in High Schools. An Interact Club was formed with more than 40 student members initially. The Interact organizational infrastructure was put into place, and officers began and continue to attend many Monticello Rotary meetings.

Since the club’s founding, several local and international projects have been initiated by The Monticello High School Interact Club. These student-led projects have included (1) “Walk for Literacy”, benefiting the Cambodian Library project, (2) an international project which provided diapers and bandages for Hospitals in Guatemala (News article and pictures attached), and, most recently, (3) a “Senior” Prom event with students hosting a prom, complete with make-up sessions, and hair-do’s for the ladies for residents of St. Benedicts Senior Assisted Living Community.

Most gratifying is that participation in these projects has not been limited to the 40 some members. Up to 70 students have participated in some of the projects, indicating strong support for this new organization that goes beyond its members and suggests potential for real growth of this Interact Club to which our Monticello Rotary is committed.
