Meeting Recap - May 8, 2018
John Ordway led us in Pledge of Allegiance and Cindy Carlson offered the invocation.
 
Our guest today was Andrew Aplikowski, Beverly Aplikowski's son.
 
President Gerry Tietz opened the meeting with the exciting news that he will be serving on our Rotary's District Board.  Congratulations, Gerry! 
Gerry also shared with the club some sincerely sweet thank you letters from the fourth graders at Bel Air for the trees they were given from our club.  The students were so grateful for their trees, and many of them gave their tree a special name. 
 
Other Announcements
Paul Fournier shared with the club the thank you letter that Iris McGinnis wrote to the club for the help with the Community Support Center's Luncheon. 
Paul also recently visited John Risdall and said that he was in great spirits, and was the sharpest he has seen him in a couple years.  Paul was very encouraged with John's progress.  John will be moving to a new facility today.  Paul will provide more information about where John is relocating soon. 
 
Jason Slama reminded everyone to join him this Saturday at the Cub Foods near Rice Street and Hwy 36 for the Stamp Out Hunger Event from 3pm -6pm.  Even if you only have 20 minutes, please come and join Jason.  Life Prep Academy students will also be volunteering with our club.  This will be a great opportunity for us to meet some of those students. 
 
John Ordway reported that along with his wife Marlys, they are willing to host another summer social for the club at their house.  They are thinking about having it on Saturday, July 14, 2018.  More details to follow. 
 
Cindy Carlson shared with the club a thank you from Kara VanderKamp, Executive Director and President of Remember Niger, who spoke at our club a few weeks ago.  Cindy encouraged club members to consider making a special donation at the end of the meeting to support the Mother's Fund through Remember Niger.  This fund helps supply secondary education for girls.  Lastly, Cindy passed around information from Second Chance Animal Rescue.  If you are interested in fostering a cat or dog, please check out their website for more information http://www.secondchancerescue.org/sc_foster_care.aspx
 
Beverly Aplikowski was delighted to introduce her daughter-in-law, Kathleen Aplikowski, as our speaker.  Kathleen is the Manager of Direct Spending and Purchasing at Caribou Coffee.  Kathleen shared with the club the recent and ongoing changes with Caribou Coffee.  In 2012, Caribou Coffee was purchased by JAB Holding Company.  This company has also purchased Einstein Bagels, Krispy Kreme, Panera Bread, Peets Coffee, and Bruegger's Bagels, as well as other companies.  With the recent purchase of Einstein Bagels, they are currently doing a beverage upgrade at all Einsteins where they will now serve Caribou Coffee.  And likewise, Caribou Coffees will now carry Einstein Bagels.  The advantage of having all these companies under the JAB Holding Company is that now these companies can work together and get better bids by combining their supplies into one bid for items like cups, napkins, etc.  They have also been able to combine departments (such as accounting and distribution) to save money and become more efficient.  Kathleen invited our club to schedule a tour of their Roaster Center that is located in the Twin Cities.
