Welcome to the Rotary Club of Minnesota Veterans


 
  
 
 
 
The Rotary Club of Minnesota Veterans and Choice Bank are hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Thursday, July 23, 2020 from 1pm - 7pm at St. Peter's - Edina.
 
Our club's last blood drive hit at the beginning of the pandemic and was extremely successful. It is time to do it again. Blood supplies remain at a critical level and blood donors are needed. 
 
DONATE:  Pre-registration is full! We welcome walk-ins, but there will likely be a wait.
 
VOLUNTEER: Sign up for a volunteer shift HERE.  Even if you don't donate, you can still volunteer.  We have several openings for set-up, tear-down, greeters, screeners, and friendly people in the canteen.
 
The blood drive will be our meeting for this night - a service event.  If you have questions, please contact Bethany Danner

11 June 2020 – Rotary Club of Minnesota Veterans
Special Guests: Rwanda & Lloyd Campbell 
 
Rwanda served as a military MD and is a member of our Veterans Club.  Lloyd has held a variety of leadership positions in Rotary and has been selected to be our District Governor in 2022-2023. We invited them to share some of their experiences as Black Americans.  Listening to each other is powerful!  Rwanda & Lloyd Campbell shared their perspective in a very moving and positive way.  CLICK HERE to watch this educational presentation (the recording cuts in right after the introductions).
 
 
 

 
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.
