Rotary at the State Fair - August 30th
By now you must have August 30 circled on your Rotary Calendar, right?! If not, why not? As mentioned in the Rotary year kick-off video (, the Rotary Blitz is coming to the Minnesota State Fair! Now is the time to make plans to join with Rotarians from Districts 5960, 5950, and 5580.
We need you and yours (families encouraged) to build a blitz with hundreds of our upper Midwest Rotary Family. And what better way to throw a party than at the "Great Minnesota Get-Together!" We are not the only ones that recognize how spectacular this annual must-go event is. Newsweek recently honored it as the sole North American entry [“Americana at it’s best”], in late summer worldwide festivals.
If it’s been a while since your last fair visit, now’s the time to get reacquainted with this Minnesota staple, and no better way than with a couple hundred Rotarian friends and family!
Our Public Image team is working on ways to get us noticed through the day. Maybe the Governor will declare this Rotary Day at the Fair?!
We encourage you to bring your family members to share in the FUN! Kids 10 and over are welcome to work alongside their parents/ grandparents in “act of service” in Equimania” in the Horse barn. Forty volunteers will receive FREE Fair admission tickets!
We are also looking for groups to blitz broadcast booths (television and radio stations) through the day.
Your Help is Needed
Our 100th Anniversary party is coming up on 10/10, and we need all hands on deck. Please take a moment to fill out this form to let us know how you can help and if you are able to help sponsor the event. 
If you have not responded please do so, the event is approaching fast. 
Club Thank you
We received a thank you from the Woodbury Club:

The Woodbury Rotary club thanks the Stillwater Rotary club for your club's support/$1000 funding of the Cameroon Education Access project (GG #1749188).  This $38,800 global grant project in Cameroon was started in 2017, completed this June, and recently signed off by Rotary International.  The project was successful in providing educational materials/training to 113 schools and supporting Cameroon literacy efforts (final report below).  The books delivered and project impact have provided hope and educational resources for an area in Cameroon now hit by civil war.

We could not have done this project without your club's financial support- thank you again.   If you have questions or want more project information, please let Yuven Lukong or me know.
