Welcome to the Rotary Club of Minnesota Veterans


 
You are invited to our next club meeting: 11 August 2022 7:00 PM
 
 
Presenter: Russ Hanes
Invisible Wounds Project
 

 

Mission: It is our turn to help those who help us.

Invisible Wounds Project is committed to raising awareness and providing services to Minnesota’s military, first responders, front-line medical staff, corrections, dispatch, and their families, relating to mental health, PTSD and suicide issues.

We are committed to making a difference and helping the heroes who’ve helped all of us. We do so without judgment.

Our resources are offered off the record and free of charge because we know the stigma that creates a barrier and we want nothing to stand in the way of getting help to those who deserve it most.

On 1 July, the start of the new Rotary year, John Meyer will take over as Club President.  
 
John is an Army veteran and currently serves as an officer in the Minnesota Army National Guard.  He is an extensive traveler, homebrewer, and spends free time at home in Woodbury with his wife and young family.
 
He found his passion while deployed with the Minnesota Army National Guard in 2011.  Working with unemployed soldiers before returning home, John worked hard to help those who wished to start their own businesses chart a path toward success.  He carried that passion and focus from the sands of Kuwait and Iraq, through law school, into practice as an Attorney.  John is a graduate of Hamline University and Mitchell Hamline School of Law (formerly William Mitchell College of Law).  John focuses primarily on business and commercial real estate law using his expertise in private practice, part of the Morris Law Group in Edina, and now with Guaranty Commercial Title in Minneapolis. John jokes that this is his “fifth career,” having spent time working as a federal employee, full-time with the Minnesota National Guard, business owner, and in professional politics. 
 
John brings his experiences into his role as club president.  We look forward to his leadership in 2022-2023!

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.
