The 3rd trial morning meeting was a fellowship event led by Jason at the Mounds View Community Center at 7:30 a.m. Nyle arranged for a generous spread of pastries, fruits, coffee and juices and the time was spent one-on-one or three-on-three getting to know more about each other.
The business of the day included kudos to John Johnson for the well organized, very successful Stockyard Days Parade feed.  750 hot dogs were served and excess food went to the Ralph Reeder Food Shelf.  Geoff Hollimon was given credit for suggesting better traffic control implemented by the City.
800 golf balls were dropped towards the hole at the CPY fundraiser with only one winner this year.
John O. brought more information about the Club outing to The Ordway to see the musical “Six” on the first Tuesday of November. They are reserving a lounge area for us. Tickets cost $55 (balcony), $75, $118 (mezzanine) or $148 (best). Let John know ASAP if you will be there as this is a popular Broadway musical and expected to sell out.
Partners with Youth is celebrating 25 years of serving children and youth. They plan an outdoor celebration in the parking lot of Christ the King Lutheran Church (where they are headquartered) on September 24th. Contact Mary Stewart to volunteer to help at the event. And plan to participate to support CPY!
Next week’s meeting will also be at the Mounds View Community Center at 7:30 a.m. Devin Massopust, New Brighton City Manager, will be the speaker. The final meeting of August (30th) will be back at The Exchange at noon preceded by a Board meeting at 11. The topic of discussion will be scheduling future meetings –morning? noon? midnight? combination? location?
Last week's speaker, Joyce Kloncz, forwarded this NBMV Rotary group photo from a meeting held many years ago at the New Brighton History Center.
