Hi Everyone... this  is what happened this  morning:
 
We had quite a few visiting Rotarians with us today--Ed Marek  from St Paul Sunrise (DGN),  Paul Perez from Prior Lake ( DGN), Clair Lillis from Forest Lake, Jennifer Meyer from NSP, Maplewood, Oakdale, Tedi Carlson from Lake Elmo and Scott Mercer from Stilllwater Noon.
 
Our guests today were Jack Matlock, Carol Monethe and Pete Orput
 
Jason opened the meeting with an update from Brewers Bazaar...great job by everyone!  There was approximately $35,000 in gross revenue, $25,000 in net revenue which was about $5,000 more than last year.  Next week will be a more detailed breakdown.  And here is quite a lovely story--the man who won the $500 from the End Polio 50/50 very graciously gave all that money back to End Polio Now!  He was so moved by what a great cause it is to end polio that he felt he had no choice but to return the money.  Who says there aren't really great people out there!

During the Sergeant at Arms portion of the meeting we witnessed Mel Sullivan giving a demonstration of the Chicken Dance, heard that Eli Quiett is going to the Indianapolis 500 for Memorial Day weekend and  that Bob Gray has been married for 28 years!
 
Our speaker today was Linda Schwefel who is the owner and managing partner of Discover Yourself and she  also teaches assault prevention training to women and girls through a program called Not Me!  Today she told us about the Super Hero Kids Foundation.  Linda gave us a shocking statistic stating that 1 in 7 kids will be assaulted  and 90% of the assaults will be by someone they know ( called groomed assault) and that the kids don't tell.  One in 4 girls and 1 in 10 boys will experience assault.  Going beyond that into sex trafficking, it was found that 90% of those victims had been sexually assaulted in elementary school and didn't ever tell anyone about it.  So it naturally follows that to stop sex trafficking it is essential to prevent assaults on the youngest members of our society...our children.   Linda showed us a video of how her program called Super Hero Kids can empower kids for a safer generation.  Some schools have adopted her program and have reported very positive results.  For more in depth information check out  www.getawayandtell.com and also www.SuperHero-Kids.org .  
 
Next week Carol Parendo will be hosting Heather Rutledge from Art Reach St. Croix
 
 
At the conclusion of today's meeting, Jason sent us out, as always ---to Be The Inspiration!
