President's Corner
     Congratulations to new Past President Bill Kiehnbaum on a very successful Rotary year that he will summarize at the July 2 meeting.  To celebrate the successful end of one Rotary year and to kick off the new Rotary year I am hosting a Rotary happy hour at Nutmeg Brewhouse in Arden Hills on July 2 at 5:30 pm and will buy a beer for the first 10 Rotarians to attend.  Please come and bring a guest to enjoy some Rotary fellowship and good craft beer.
 
     Nineteen members attend a spirited and enthusiastic club visioning session on June 26.  The District 5960 visioning team of John Channon, Lynn Megan, Shelli Erck and Bonnie Thompson was joined by Assistant Governor Sandy Campbell.  Members were asked what the club should look like and be doing in 2020.  Highlights included increasing membership to 40-45 members, partnering with other organizations on projects, adding more younger members, club happy hours, a more robust STRIVE Program, a literacy exchange program, hosting and sponsoring exchange students, more service projects, a summit with other service organizations, an international project every year, having a presidential development team, increased giving to the Rotary Foundation, hosting community forums or debates, sharing of club information on the Neighborhoods social media site, inviting the public to hear one of our speakers monthly and a well Rotary signed trademarked project.  The vision will be shared in a club assembly in September.
 
     To support our projects and scholarships we need to have a successful craft beer tasting fund raiser.  MEMBERS NEED TO SELL TICKETS TO THE TASTE OF THE HOPS.  
 
      At the July 2 club assembly there will be sign up sheets for members to indicate what teams & committees they would like to join under the various avenues of service.  Those sign ups will provide the directors and team leaders with the members they can call upon to work on the club's projects to carry out the Rotary motto of Service Above Self.

July 2019 Update For The Amaravathi Sewing School Project
 
Our Sewing School Project in Amaravathi, India is going very well. As many of you were aware, Gummadi Franklin, the driving force behind PUSHPA, was in country when the grant was received and was due to be coming home in a couple of weeks. He and his team were able to find a suitable location for the school and an experienced teacher for the school in anticipation of our receipt of our District Grant. All of the work to equip the school has been completed and the school has been established in Amaravathi and 16 students are now working to complete the teaching protocol that has been established for completion of the sewing training program.   
 
s has been        As previously reported, we were required to find an Indian partner that had an Indian Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA)Certification and raise $4819 from other District Clubs, which we have done. Having raised our support, we  support, we received $7819 in matching funds from the District and the work of establishing the new sewing school was completed in the two weeks following our receipt of the Grant.
 
A lot of hard A lot of hard work went into obtaining this grant and there are many people to thank for their hard work and significant contributions. PUSHPA has now taken the baton and it is especially gratifying to see it take the first turn                turn in the establishment of the new school, completing all the initial steps required to establish the new school in Amaravathi in such a short period of time.
 
We are than  We are thankful to the following Rotary Clubs for their generous support of our project: Belle Plaine; Brooklyn Park; Forrest Lake; Fridley Columbia Heights; New Brighton Mounds View; Prior Lake; Roseville; St. Croix Falls; St. Paul #10                 No. 10; Siren Webster; West St. Paul Mendota Heights; and White Bear Lake.

June 11 - Club Meeting
Our speaker today was Mark McCabe, Director of Ramsey County Parks and Recreation.  This department covers a wide scope within our county - both county and regional parks, trails, beaches, golf courses, nature centers, and ice arenas.  There are also organized activities at some locations such as log rolling at Tony Schmidt Park and "Cops and Bobbers" at Long Lake Regional Park.  And, of course, more traditional activities such as cross-country skiing, bird watching, geocaching and orienteering.  In total there are about 5 million visitors to these locations each year.  McCabe addressed audience questions about the local problem of the flooded/closed Snail Lake beach and trails.  He acknowledged the community frustration this situation has caused but noted that the past 10 years have been the wettest in recorded history.  The high water mark on Snail Lake just keeps getting higher.  He noted that there are a number of parties studying this issue and predicted that, within two years, there will be action of some sort taken to allow the beach to re-open.
June 18 - Club Meeting
Today we heard from newest member Anoop Mathur, who was accompanied by his wife Preeti.  Both of the Mathurs have Masters Degrees - Anoop's in Chemical Engineering from the University of MN, and Preeti's in Journalism.  Anoop had a long career at Honeywell before leaving to start a new venture, Terrafore Technologies LLC, a development company active in the fields of energy efficiency and renewable energy with a specific focus on Thermal Energy Storage.  During his time at Honeywell, Anoop was awarded 28 U.S. patents and made technology contributions in many areas:  advanced sensors and controls, advanced materials, neural networks and A.I., wireless sensors and solar technologies.  He also donates his time to a number of volunteer activities, including the Science Museum of MN, the local Indian American Organization, the Sehgel Foundation and F.A.T.H.E.R., a group which helps with adult education to allow individuals to obtain their GEDs.  He and Preeti are the proud grandparents of two little ones, who reside in London with their daughter and son-in-law.  They also have a son in the Twin Cities.  We are so pleased to have this very busy and accomplished man as part of our Arden Hills/Shoreview Rotary!  Thanks to Mark Stange for his recruiting effort, which followed a chance meeting to return Preeti's lost cell phone, which Mark had found in the middle of the road!
