After eight years of writing the weekly NBMV Rotary Bulletin (400 issues) I'm turning over the writing of the bulletin to Dana Rebelein.  I'll still be editing and publishing the bulletin, but I'm looking forward to being able to experience our meetings without the pressure of notetaking.  I'm extremely grateful to Dana for taking on this responsibility and I know that she will do a great job. 
Today’s meeting was held in the beautiful backyard of Nyle and Terri Zikmund.  Our guests today were former Rotary exchange student Maria Klakegg, Rotary scholarship recipient Nicholas Ludford and Honorary Rotarian MaryAnn Bawden.  Maria leaves for home tomorrow and we will miss her greatly.  Nicholas will be attending the University of Minnesota to study Science and Engineering and my conversation with him tells me that he will be very successful.  We were all pleased to have Finara Fang back with us after an extended leave.  Welcome back, Finara!
The board has approved a $300 contribution to the Community Support Center (CSC) for the upcoming Walk For Your Neighbors fundraiser.  This is in addition to our budgeted $1,000 CSC contribution. This contribution is timely because the removal of the moratorium on evictions has caused a dramatic upsurge in need for services from the Community Support Center.  John Johnson (our CSC representative) encouraged us to support the Community Support Center by participating in the walk at Silver View Park, Silver Lake Rd at County Road I, on July 31st from 9-1PM.  Come and join us to walk a little or a lot and make a donation which will be matched by the CSC Board of Directors.  This year, we again have a way to give online thru Thrivent. All donations received in the month of June and July will be counted towards our Walk and there are no fees.
President Elect Jason Miller presented our check for $300 to CSC.  The check was accepted by our CSC representative, John Johnson (below).
CPY’s Junior Chef Program needs four more volunteers to help put together meal packages for the holiday weekend.  Contact Mary Stewart (651-633-6464) if you can help on Thursday, June 30th from 10:30-Noon.
Club Treasurer John Ordway would be most appreciative if everyone could pay their outstanding dues by the end of June.  This will be helpful for John to wrap up the end of year financial report.
Many, many thanks go to Nyle and Terri Zikmund for making their beautiful home available for this meeting.
There will be no meeting on July 5th.
Our next meeting will be on July 12th at the Exchange.  This meeting will feature the passing of the gavel from Charlie Longbella to Jason Miller and the presentation of the Rotarian of the Year award to Cindy Carlson.  In anticipation of a larger than usual crowd, a buffet lunch will be served.
