Hi All,
Last week was pretty busy.  Thanks to everyone that attended Mary Hernandez's icebreaker & Pastor Pat Simmons presentation on Esperanza.  I was impressed by the number of youth served and their outcomes.  It was heartwarming to know that that this program works in our commu ity and that Shakopee Rotary is one of their sponsors. 
Congratulations to Linda Plum and her daughter to whom we awarded a Paul Harris award. Linda is a Paul Harris plus one!
It was my pleasure to award two Shakopee Dollars for Scholars Rotary Scholarships last Wednesday morning to Said Bakr and Rachel Kahnke. The award breakfast was delightful and packed.  Congratulations to all the students.  FYI: you can still drop off your Shakopee Cub receipt to support Dollars for Scholars thoughout the summer!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  This week we welcome Mayor Brad Tabke and Jamie Polley from the City of Shakopee speaking on "What's up with the Shakopee Community Center?". Our greeters are Tony Spagnolo, Alan Spillers and Kevin Studnicka.  Our songbird is Linda Plum and the fine guru is Ron Smith.   This would be a good meeting to invite prospective members!
