The Rotary Club of Edina and the Edina Morningside Rotary Club are embarking on starting and supporting a Rotaract Club. Rotaract clubs consist of young professionals between the ages of 18 and 30. Starting a Rotaract Club is one of Rotary International President Barry Rassin’s goals this year - to expand Rotaract globally and strengthen the transition from Rotaract into Rotary.
 
The first Rotaract meeting with be at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12, at The Mezz in the Lunds & Byerlys on France Avenue in Edina. The meetings will be the second and fourth Wednesday of the month, starting Sept. 12.
 
There are 10,904 Rotaract Clubs in the world consisting of 250,792 members in 184 countries.  There is only one Rotaract Club in District 5950.  Plenty of room for growth!
 
Rotaract is our future.  It is our AAA team.  Noon club members Jake Johnson and Scott Hawkins have agreed to be on the founding Rotaract board.  We need four more board members to complete our slate.  Our Rotaract Club plans to meet the 2nd and 4th Wednesday evenings at the Mezz at Lunds and Byerlys in Edina on Hazelton and France.  The Rotaract Club meetings will focus on speakers and service projects following Rotary’s mission.

We need Rotaract members. Please contact Sam Thompson from the noon club at sthompson@transitionsib.com if you have friends, family, neighbors or work associates that would be interested in joining our Rotaract Club.
