Today, we heard from Any Countryman, a Senior Development Manager with the American Cancer Society.  We learned how they are fighting cancer from every angle - research, direct service, public education, behavior change & advocacy.  We learned that 1 in 3 people in the US will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.  We learned about Hope Lodge with 30+ lodges across the US providing a nurturing, home-like environment for those affected by cancer.  We learned of a vaccination for teens (13-17) that help prevent 10 different cancers.  Like Rotary's hope for a world without Polio, the American Cancer Society's hope is for a world without Cancer.
 
Our very own President, Eric Becker, is part of the Real Men Wear Pink campaign.  He has also put together a Pickleball Tournament fundraiser for Cancer at the Hope Fieldhouse in Rosemount on Saturday, October 30th.

Shelly Peters-360 Communities Violence Prevention Community Educator and Advocate spoke to our club today to kick off Domestic Violence Awareness month which begins October 1st. Shelly shared the wonderful work 360 Communities is doing to support victim survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Did you know both  1 in 4 women and men are victims of domestic violence? Shelly also shared about the power and control wheel and the cycle of violence. If you or someone you know needs support reach out to 360 Communities 24 hour crisis line anytime at 651-452-7288
Today, our club heard from Matthew Condon, our September Student of the Month.
Matthew exemplifies Rotary's motto of Service Above Self.   He has dedicated his life to service after losing his father to cancer at a young age.  His father taught him by word and example that kindness matters and he continues his dad's legacy.
A fun fact we learned about Matthew is that he set a record by earning every possible Scout badge and became an Eagle Scout at an early age.
Matthew was RHS's EXCEL Award winner in 2020.
Matthew hopes to attend one of our Military Academies with a career in Law Enforcement/FBI.
It was very enjoyable meeting Matthew and we wish him the very best.
 
 
Today our club heard from Anna Voight, Associate Director of Student Life.
Anna, a DCTC alum, gave us the history of the college's food support program.
What started as a partnership with Open Door in 2012 transitioned to a Food Pantry in 2020 due to COVID.
In 2014, they had 192 food pick-ups....in 2020, that number was 1603!
It was heartbreaking to hear that 1 of 3 students do not know where their next meal is coming from.
Pictured below is the student store run by volunteer students.
Thank you Anna for your presentation and the work that you do!
