Members and guests will meet on June 4 at the Federal Reserve Bank in Minneapolis for a tour arranged by Colleen Lavin.  The WaPo and NYT report that anonymous sources have indicated attendees will receive free samples from the bank.  Bonanza or fake news?  Come and see.  Mark Stange has arranged for Director Mark McCabe to talk to the club about Ramsey County's parks and recreation programs on June 11.  The club's newest member, Anoop Mather, will make his classification talk and tell members about his role as chief technology officer at Terrafore Technologies on June 18.  There will be no morning meeting on June 25.  Instead members will gather at 5 pm on Wednesday, June 26, at the Shoreview Community Center to participate in the Rotary Club's Visioning Process.
The new Rotary Year will begin July 2 with a club assembly for the peaceful change of administration.  President Bill Kiehnbaum will hand the gavel to the author and thank those who have made President Kiehnbaum's year so successful.  Members will also sign up for the various teams and avenues of service for the upcoming Rotary year.  The July 9 meeting will feature a program by Shoreview city employee Jon Yankovic who will tell members and guests how he became a snowplow rodeo champion.
Thanks to Kay Baker and Charlie Oltman for arranging May's programs.  Members heard from Iris Tzafir about her reflections as a daughter of Holocaust survivors.  Steve Woods talked about the Freshwater Society on May 21 and Tom Landwehr about the Boundary Waters Canoe Area on May 28.
The Arden Hills-Shoreview Rotary Club has always featured great programs.  Many thanks are due to the following members for the programs for the 2018-19 Rotary Year:  Joe Ziskovsky, Peggy Strom, Glenn Bowers, Miriam Zachary, Bob Freed, Colleen Lavin, Paul McCreight, Frank Mabley, Ken Hola, Kent Peterson, Kay Baker, Charlie Oltman and Mark Stange.
