Welcome to the Rotary Club of Minnesota Veterans


 
 
It is a new day!  A new year!  A new opportunity to serve veterans!
 
And we need your help...
 
This month we are having a Club Assembly to make our Club more relevant, more attractive to potential Members, encourage Members to participate, and make an even more significant difference in helping veterans. The more input that members provide, the better the Club will become. So please make a point of attending this upcoming meeting in person or by Zoom or submitting your comments to me [guymarzano@gmail.com] if you cannot attend. Club Leaders will consider each suggestion carefully and try to implement the most relevant ones.
 
Here are the questions we’re seeking comment on:
     1. What makes membership in our Club desirable [the Club’s assets, values, uniqueness, etc.]?
     2. What has been going well that the Club needs to keep doing [with little or no change]?
     3. What is the Club doing now that you would like to see grow in scope/effectiveness?
     4. What’s not working well for the Club that needs to be totally eliminated or replaced?
     5. What innovative, “out of the box” ideas do you have to make the Club better [be creative and specific]?
 
I very much hope that you will participate in this exercise. …And, if want to share something one on one with me, we can talk on the phone (612) 839-7288, or set up a coffee, breakfast, lunch, or an after work meeting.   
 
Guy Marzano, Club President

She talked about her Club’s veteran-related programs [that some of us may be able to help with; and ask her Club Members for help with ours].

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.
