Hi Everyone... this  is what happened this  morning:
 
We did not have any visiting Rotarians  however Ted Nesse , accompanied by his wife, Mona, brought Rick Slachta as his guest.
 
Jason opened the meeting with the usual  announcements--check out the calendar portion of the newsletter. 
 
The Brewers Bazaar is just around the corner now ( 25 days away to be exact)  and Jason gave us an updated  long range forecast-- 75 degrees and sunny.  The sign-up sheets are out and about, everyone is getting their purple shirts washed and pressed,and  the raffle tickets are available ( don't forget to pick yours  up).  Everyone is expected to sell or buy at least 5 tickets and more is better. Need more?  See either Greg or Troy.  They still have envelopes that some of you haven't picked up yet.  We will be contacting you to see how you want to get the tickets.
 
The Quad Club cook-off was a huge success!!  Craig reported that our Club came in third place to which we all heartily applauded!  There was a dead tie for first.
 
Mark Lambert sent around a sign up sheet for the Roadside Clean Up which will take place May 4th, Saturday at 8 am.  Come at 7:30 for a Continental breakfast and then proceed to clean up the area.  Meet at Stillwater Township Hall. 
 
Jeanne Matlock told us that the St. Croix Valley Foundation is hosting a 2018-2019 Luncheon Speaker Series.  The first will be on Wednesday May 15th at the Lake Elmo Event Center with lunch at 11:30 and from 12:00 to 1:00 the speaker will be Peter Kilde.  For more information go to https://www.scvfoundation.org/conversations-of-the-valley.  Jeanne also informed us about a Garden Tea on May 18th at 1:00 pm at St. Paul Lutheran Church that will help the support the Youth Drop In Center.
 
The Rotarian in the Spotlight today was Ed Boeve .  This is the portion  of the meeting where we find out something about our fellow Rotarian that we didn't know before.  We found out that Ed attended one of the last country schools in Minnesota and graduated from 6th grade in a class of one... we are assuming he was first in his class.   He also has participated in a Fantasy Football League for the past 31 years and won the League championship last year for the first time!   However even though he has been to the Masters Golf Tournament 10 times, he has not yet been invited to play the course...better luck next year.

Our speaker this morning was Robin Anthony, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce.  She spoke to us about a new Leadership Program being organized in an effort further the Chamber's goal of leading with passion, purpose and pride.  The belief is that leadership affects culture and to that end a steering committee has been convened to begin a nine month program designed  to bring emerging and existing leaders and consequently their organizations together who welcome the opportunity to expand their involvement in community affairs, and are willing to explore new leadership responsibilities in the community.  If you are interested in being a part of this opportunity please visit www.greaterstillwaterchamber.com.
