Rotary Meetings ONLINE Until Further Notice 

We all have been overwhelmed with information about the Coronavirus, including health and public safety information from a number of sources. Guidance from Rotary International, federal, state, and local health departments, as well as a new and evolving set of social norms are being carefully considered as we take action to deal with this pandemic at the club level.
After thorough deliberation, the Board of Directors has decided to cancel all in-person club meetings through May 4, in-line with the CDC’s guidance. We will continue to take guidance from the CDC and Beltrami County Public Health when deciding our next steps, including exactly when we will resume our regular meeting.
In the meantime, our club will continue to meet online via ZOOM as well as be present in our community. Watch for the link to join us in your weekly emails.

Nothing can fully replace the value of face-to-face meetings among our members. However, the risks from the pandemic require changes in line with the four-way test. Take care of yourselves and take care of each other by limiting the chances of viral transmission, particularly for the most vulnerable.
Yours in Rotary, Brian Larson  - Club President

North Country Park will be home to a new natural 'playscape.' It's described it as a natural playground created with native plants, hills and trees to provide a connection to nature for children. The new playground would fit in with the park at 1001 30th St., as it's already home to an outdoor classroom and butterfly gardens. We will assist in design, development and public engagement with the project. As part of the agreement, our club has agreed to raise $30,000 for the project. The city's commitment is up to amount of $50,000. The plan is for design work to take place this winter with construction to follow in summer or fall 2020.
