Our club celebrated 10 years of service with a joint meeting with our parents, the Farmington Rotary Club.
Our District Governor, Paul Perez, attended and gave a wonderful presentation on how Rotary Connects the World.  Thanks to Lisa Franxman (Rosemount Rotary President) for her creative gift bag (see photo).
Thanks to Ryan and his staff at Black Diamond Event Center and thanks to our members for all you do. 
 
Brenda Teats, of the MN Zoo Foundation, gave a very interesting presentation of the MN Zoo and how the Zoo changes lives - both animal and human - every day!  She explained how the Foundation works hard to ensure the animals and keepers have the resources they need to make amazing possible.
The mission of the Minnesota Zoo is to connect people, animals and the natural world to save wildlife.  Learn more about actions you can take to support the Zoo and to help animals in the wild.
Contact the Minnesota Zoo Foundation at donations@mnzoo.org  or 952.431.9237 with any questions.
 
At our Oct 16th meeting, we heard from Regan Hansen, our SOM.  Her hope is to either follow her father's footsteps by being appointed to the Naval Academy or follow her sister to the Air Force Academy.  With her impressive resume, we hope her dream comes to fruition.
 
We also heard from Rhonda Kalal of MRCI.  We learned of how MRCI creates innovative and genuine opportunities for people of disabilities or disadvantages at home, at work and in the community.
 
Pietro Conti, our Exchange Student from Italy, spoke to the club today about his hometown, family, hobbies & interests.
