Happy Dollars:
 
Natalie Landwehr:  
The Black Woods Blizzard Tour has a record 225 riders this year and raised over $1.1Milliondollars for the MN, ND, and SD chapter.  That money goes towards gear/medical treatment/end of life care for those with ALS - because of our fundraising (the largest ALS fundraiser in the country) we have eliminated the wait-list for those needing support.

Thought for the Week

Pat Dale

 

Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.

Steve Maraboli

History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.

Winston S. Churchill

Alyssa Swanson-Richfield Historical Society Presents

Recreating the activities of the late 1800's offer youth and adult alike a change to step back in time, and imagine living in a log cabin, or packing for a long journey, either by wagon or steam boat. Others will experience an early form of baseball, or meeting a French Voyageur. 

 

Today visitors can participate in a early form of baseball, or listen to performers at the "Back Porch Concerts".

Thought for the Week
 
"Rotary has risen to so many challenges in its 112 years.  
We've answered conflict with peace, and poverty with education.
We've responded to a lack of basic health care with projects large and small, from equipping clinics in tiny villages to eradicating polio across the globe...
The world is a far, far better place now than it would have been without Rotary...."
 

                                               -- RI President John Germ
