Welcome to the Rotary Club of Minnesota Veterans


 
 
 
The Rotary Club of Minnesota Veterans is hosting our 17th Blood Drive in April.  Even if you aren't a blood donor, participate in some of the other drives:
 
1. Electronics Recyling - bring old cell phones, laptops, tablets electronics, game counsels, etc.
2. Apartment Furnishings - provide cleaning and pantry supplies for new apartments to relocate Vets in their time of need.
3. Clothing - give a Vet and their families class by providing gently used clothing for interviews and other events.  
 
We partner with other veteran organizations on all of these efforts.  That is the leverage of Rotary!
 
 
We need some volunteers from 7pm-8pm.  Let Mark know if you will show up to help clean up.  All members are invited to come and serve as greeters anytime between 1-7pm.  
 
 

 
 
 
We recently spent some time together discussing our direction for the future.  The club members authorized the following steps as we go forward. 
 
We ask for your patience as we reorganize to include more members and others who support veteran causes.  There are exciting days ahead as we mobilize to serve vets and their families!  We look forward to your participation.
 
 
 

 

A recent meeting was a blend of the future and veteran history!  We heard About current recruiting efforts for the Air Force and Space Force along with some fascinating past recollections of Academy real life history.

About Rotary Veterans
 
We are a group of Veterans and other service minded men and women living in Minnesota who were chartered as a service club within Rotary International in October, 2019.  Our sense of service derives from military core values of "Service before Self"  that parallels those of Rotary International "Service above Self." 
 
Service includes: actively caring for one another and our extended families - especially during times of hurt; serving in our communities - youth, civic organizations, schools and the elderly; duly honoring other veterans & their families - especially during times of grief; and serving those in area/regions where we have served, such as projects in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Somalia, etc.
