June 26, 2014 MEETING NOTES

Invocation: Ray Schalow

Ron Cossette vacationed in Kauaʻi, Hawai’i, and brought back a banner from the Hanalai Rotary club.

Vic Benetti and Ray Schalow are keeping in touch with Karl Nyline during his stroke recovery and report that Karl will be moving to: All Saints Senior Living, 1880 Independence Drive, Shakopee, MN 55379 phone (952) 233-7351.

Prayers and thoughts of support are directed at Matt Podhradsky and his family as Matt’s son faces a health crisis.

Lynn Ayers gave up a Happy Dollar to announce the relocation of the Taste of Minnesota to the Carver County Fairgrounds in the city of Waconia (501 West 3rd St.). Normally held on Harriet Island in St. Paul, the high waters forced the annual event to be moved, and our county will benefit from the influx of visitors. Aside from the music, food and fireworks each night July 3, 4, 5 + 6, the highlight may be the Kemps “Interactive Incredible Milking Cow station where families can milk the rubber udders of a simulated Kemps cow!” For more information about the events and entertainment: http://www.atasteofmn.com
