Welcome to the Rotary Club of Minnesota Veterans

The Blood Drive is going forward as scheduled - along with a little "Social Distancing" Veterans refreshments in the parking lot for members and volunteers following the event on Thursday.
In the near term, Rotary International recommends that Rotary clubs meet virtually, cancel, or postpone meetings and events following the advice of national and local health officials. Rotary is closely monitoring the pandemic of COVID-19 and continuously assessing the potential impact on Rotary operations, events, and members. Your health and safety are always our top priorities.
The club leaders will continue to communicate with you about the next meetings as decisions are reached. In the meantime, keep our service project on April 18 on your calendar!
The Blood Drive hosted by the Rotary Club of Minnesota Veterans is going to be held as planned.  There is now an extreme shortage of blood and Veterans will always step forward to make a sacrifice.  Thank you to all who have stepped forward to donate blood.  Please remember to hydrate now and eat a healthy meal before coming to donate.
The Red Cross has added additional staff and appointments, but those have already been filled.  We do expect that there will be some cancellations so check regularly if there are any appointments that have opened.  There may also be no-shows. The Blood Drive does allow for some walk-ins, however, there could be long wait times. Text Jeff Staads, event coordinator, on Thursday afternoon to see how quickly we are moving donors through: 715-559-1030

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.  


Change your community with us by volunteering on a local project.


We work with groups and organizations of all sizes to accomplish even more.
