Neighbors Helping Neighbors is have a work day this Saturday. Anyone interested in joining the Interact Club students is welcome to come Saturday 9:15-11:30 where they will be collecting orders, working with shoppers, stocking shelves, etc.

Online leadership course is available. Contact Susan for details on the online event.

We have 3 highchairs that have been donated to the club from the Little Vikings academy.

Heidi's Ukraine update. We have extra days to raise funds that will be matched. We have raised $3600 so far. $1000 from the grants committee and $2600 of individual donations.

Shawn: we had 3 members at the grant seminar last weekend. She learned a few new things at the seminar. Steve and Liz also attended. Attendance by club members helps our club to qualify for grant matching.

On that note; just a reminder that EREY contributions allow our club to reap the benefits of qualifying for grants along with matching funds from Rotary Foundation. Online donations can be made by visiting

Super Brunch

Paul thanks us for the ad sales. We have sold 199 ads so please do your best to collect payment for the ads.

Worker schedule has been set up. If you need to change your assignment let Paul know.

We need to most people at 8:30, and more importantly a clean up crew afterwards around 1:30.

Our Saturday setup will be less compared to previous years. We have a grill top cover now instead of the propane grill.

Some discussion has been going on with the fundraising committee regarding streamlining time investment with fund raising. 

Steve: if you see Mike McNall thank him for his efforts in the past with setting up advertisers on the placemat. We are having to recreate his contact list and build a system for this important element of the brunch.

Ideas thrown out by club members:

Opening up advertising to the public for special messages, especially with the event so close to Valentine’s Day.

Peggy: Another good idea is to send a more consolidated form to past supporters or advertisers sent out in November with the various events throughout the year and a checkbox next to each event.

and finally...

In response to the deepening humanitarian crisis caused by the war in Ukraine, The Rotary Foundation has created an official channel for donors around the world to contribute funds to support the relief efforts underway by Rotary districts and has designated its Disaster Response Fund as the main avenue for contributions.

To this end, The Rotary Foundation has approved:

  • Now through 30 June 2022, designated Rotary districts that border Ukraine and the Rotary district in Ukraine may apply for grants of up to $50,000 each from the Disaster Response Fund. These expedited disaster response grants can be used to provide relief to refugees or other victims of the crisis including items such as water, food, shelter, medicine and clothing.
  • During this same period, other impacted Rotary districts that wish to offer support to refugees or other victims of the crisis in their district can apply for $25,000 grants from the Disaster Response Fund.
  • Now through 30 April 2022, Rotary districts can transfer unallocated District Designated Funds (DDF) to support the Disaster Response Fund, directly supporting these Ukraine-specific humanitarian grants.
  • Contributions to the Disaster Relief Fund in support of Ukraine can be made here. All funds need to be received into the Disaster Response Fund by 30 April 2022 in order to qualify for use in support of the Ukrainian relief efforts.
  • Although the Disaster Response Fund will be the main avenue for Rotary Foundation support, Rotary and Rotaract clubs are also encouraged to create their own responses to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

In addition to support provided through the Disaster Response Fund, the Foundation is coordinating with partners and regional leaders, exploring effective solutions to the increased humanitarian needs.

  • We are in contact with the United Nations High Commission on Refugees – USA to prepare for and respond to the needs of those being displaced in Ukraine and to neighboring countries.
  • ShelterBox, our project partner for disaster response, is in communication with Rotary members in Eastern Europe to explore how it may offer support with temporary transitional housing and other essential supplies.
  • The Rotary Action Group for Refugees, Forced Displacement, and Migration is also mobilizing its resources to assist in this crisis.

More than 2 million people have fled Ukraine and are in dire need of emergency aid. The United Nations estimates that number could grow to as many as 5 million people displaced. Rotary clubs in Europe and around the world have stepped up their relief work, some working on the ground to help displaced families.

We will continue to monitor the situation in Ukraine and neighboring countries. Visit My Rotary and follow Rotary on social media to stay updated on how clubs can get involved and what actions Rotary members have taken and the impact it has had for people in the region.
