Cindy Carlson shared information from the Board Meeting:
  • The Board voted to allocate $600 as seed money to encourage other Clubs to help provide 30 medical kits to Senitizo for OBGYN emergency surgeries in Central African Republic. When pregnant women incur problems that prevent them from delivering at home, they are taken to the clinic and from there to a hospital that can do surgeries. The hospital does not have adequate supplies to perform the operations, however, so Senitizo assembles kits at $100 apiece containing the sutures, pads, etc.  They need about 30 each year. Cindy will approach other Clubs, many of which have joined with us in previous Sinitizo projects, to purchase 30 kits.
  • We received an invitation to participate in a Mobile Pack (fka Feed My Starving Children),  Wednesday, April 24 through Sunday, April 28 at Incarnation Lutheran Church in Shoreview. Participants are asked donate $60 per person to cover the cost of food they will pack. The Board will consider paying some or all of this for our volunteers from funds budgeted for community service. Advance registration is required. If possible, choose the Thursday slot from 12:30-2:30 or 3:30- 5:30. If not, sign up when you can participate. Sign up for a convenient time.  See the link above.
  • Taste of Shoreview, Arden Hills/Shoreview Rotary Club fundraiser, is Tuesday, April 23 from 5-8 p.m. at the Shoreview Community Center. Admission is $35 per person.
  • The $2,000 we budgeted for CPY will be dedicated to help pay for a larger, newer, low mileage bus they are purchasing.
Mary Jo McGuire, Ramsey County Commissioner and President of the National Association of County Commissioners, gave a very brief overview of areas of focus for Ramsey County, including public health, mental health, infrastructure, climate action, homelessness, development, sustainability and work force issues. These issues are the same in every county nationwide.
