Today several of us were lucky enough to be a part of a photo shoot at the Tokata Learning Center to celebrate the recent new fencing behind the school. Shakopee Rotary made this fence possible through their donations for the materials. The students pictured here were the workers that actually planned and built the fence into how it looks today. Wonderful space for the students to experience some time outdoors and relax from their studies. Thanks everyone for your participation!
Thank you  to the wonderful Loaves and Fishes volunteers we had tonight.  We had Mark Brown, Michele Dahl , Tammy Laurent, Terry Pederson, and myself on the first shift. Second shift was Barb Brekke, Jenny Ames, Tim Whitcomb, Tara McNeally and her daughter Gracie. It is truly inspiring to see what Rotarians can do when they get together.  Despite the COVID restrictions, we  still provided outreach to a community in need.
  
Friends of Shakopee Rotary, we regret to inform you that due to COVID-19, our Little Chicago Speakeasy and Casino night has been canceled for 2020.  Plans are being made for ticket refunds.  Thank you for your continued support of Shakopee Rotary.
Thanks to everyone who donated food or money to the CAP food drive on Tuesday. We received almost 700 lbs of food plus monetary donations!  The food was delivered to CAP in the Joemobile pictured below.
It was another great night at Loaves & Fishes on February 4th 2019 with our crew!  The first group prepared the food and the second group served and cleaned up.  What a great organization and opportunity to give back to our community directly.  We always enjoy the people and our time there.  http://www.loavesandfishesmn.org/index.html
The Shakopee Rotary Club recently donated $1000 for the purchase of an A1C Diabetes test machine and supplies for use by River Valley Health Services. River Valley Health Services is dedicated to promoting community wellness through serving vulnerable individuals and ensuring access to health resources in our community. The Shakopee Rotary Club is excited to help River Valley Health Services.
 
 
Greetings Everyone, 
 
It is with heavy hearts we announce the funeral arrangements for our beloved Rotarian, friend, and community member.  
 
Jack was President of the Rotary Club of Shakopee, and served as our District Governor in 1991-1992.  He was a true Rotarian at heart, always putting Service Above Self.  Even his final request is that memorials be given to the Rotary, rather than flowers or gifts.  
 
As you know, our club is a singing club, and for many, many years Jack was our fearless song leader.  He was always fun, a bit silly, and made our meetings memorable.  He would even bring his tuba in to play for us.  
 
Many of us have fond memories of Jack being a stable rock within our club.  He always stepped up to help, and always cared about every one of us.  He was a very special person.  He will be deeply missed by our club and our community.
