I am thrilled to be starting my term as President of the Stillwater Rotary!
This week's meeting
Please join us this Thursday as we hear from Christopher Pennell Phd, U of MN Masonic Cancer Center.
Last Week's Meeting
Ann Frisch gave a Peace Presentation last week with an enlightening video presentation.  It was also good to be joined by Rotarians from India.

My area of work in peace is avoiding nuclear war, accidents, and miscalculations that would void all our work for peace in the past, and for the immediate future (a few centuries).

Our truth is:  (we did the  four way test). "If we do not abolish nuclear weapons, sooner or later they will be used.”  Here’s what I suggest: an 8 minute video of a scenario where one nuclear weapons was dropped (presumably by accident because a single one would not be dropped on purpose; it would be a minimum of 100); short discussion about the video, the some things that people can do even if they are busy saving the world in another way or place.  And if you like, I’ll bring a club from India or Pakistan to join.  

Potential Global Grant

We are looking at a potential Global Grant to assist Senitizo with providing medical equipment to the Central African Republic (CAR). 

Here are some additional details about what our proposed project would entail. The medical equipment needed at the maternal and child health center would be to provide primary health care. This would include:


Senitizo’s operations are centered on the provision of high-quality health services to Central Africans in need. Our operations are based out of the Central African Republic (CAR), whose government is unable to provide social services, and which has suffered from ongoing conflict and extreme poverty. Countries suffering from chronic humanitarian crises, like CAR, require a new way of providing humanitarian health services that ensures a higher quality of health services while minimizing the cost. By employing a new “locally-based, value for money” business model, Senitizo maximizes the impact of health activities and resource efficiency.

Townie Tuesday - September 1, 2020
Our club is the featured “Townie Tuesday” organization at Lift Bridge Brewing on September 1st.   During the event, our club will receive a donation of $1.00 per glass sold and $2.00 per growler sold.   There will be delicious beer, seltzers, root beer, and a food truck onsite!  We will also have a raffle drawing for gift certificates to local restaurants who have participated in The Taste of the Valley.   The taproom is open to the general public that evening and our club will receive a portion of all sales, not just Rotarian sales.  This will be a fun event for some much-needed fellowship and will be great exposure for our club.  Invite your family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors!  See Katie Bang with questions.
