Our Club has supported Jaime and Liz and their Future Roots Project (www.futurerootsproject.com) for several years.   The Future Roots Project is a collective founded in Minnesota that focuses on sustainable educational, artistic, and health initiatives in Nicaragua.  From teachers trainings to designing sustainable classroom materials, Future Roots brings educational and artistic opportunities to impoverished communities that improve literacy rates, creativity, self worth, health & empowerment in children.  Jaime and Liz are passionate about improving the lives of kids in Nicaragua. 

 
 
Arch Klumph’s idea for an endowment fund dedicated to “doing good in the world” planted the seed for The Rotary Foundation in 1917. That one idea and an initial contribution of $26.50 set in motion a powerful force for good that has transformed millions of lives around the globe.
 
To celebrate 100 years of doing good in the world, the Rotary Clubs of Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Crystal-New Hope-Robbinsdae, Maple Grove and Rogers held a community celebration on July 29 at Town Green Park in Maple Grove.
 
As well as being involved in a lot of local projects, our Club is involved in international projects.  Our current international project is the Agua Para Nicaragua project.  We are working with the Rotary Club of Masaya Nicaragua to furnish and install water filtration systems for 300 homes in 4 villages in the Masaya Department of Nicaragua.  These villages have elevated cases of GI-tract infections, primarily due to contaminated water sources.  The water filtration system will use a system that has been successfully used on many other locations globally.  Our Club is also partnering with other area Clubs as well as the Muskogee Club in Oklahama.

I was asked the other day what our club does besides meet weekly, visit, listen to a speaker and have a wonderful breakfast.  So I started going back through the last months to let you know some of what the club does. 

Would it surprise you to find out that we:

Purchased school supplies and backpacks for distribution through PRISM for the back to school program

Took a group of Tree House students to play WhirlyBall. 

Collected and distributed 110 Holiday Food Baskets through PRISM which also included hats and gloves through the Warm Hands Warm Hearts initiative in each bag.

Sold over 150 bags of coffee with all proceeds going to the Tree House for youth initiatives. 

Raised over $750, through pocket change donations (and it's still growing!) for Rotary's Polio Plus initiative

In addition, we also gave back to the community through monetary donations to the following groups:

Local DARE officers

Tree House

PRISM

Days for Girls

Future Roots

New Hope YMCA

and many other activities and donations. 

So to answer the question, what does the CNHR Rotary club DO?  Whatever we can to help make a difference within our community! 

If you would like more information about Rotary or our club, please send email any one of the Club officers (on the left hand side of the page).  We would LOVE to have you join us and help make a difference in Crystal, New Hope and Robbinsdale!

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
Centennial celebration honors 20 noteworthy global grant projects
Through The Rotary Foundation, Rotary members have supported thousands of projects that promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, save mothers and children, support education, and grow local economies. We’ve also led the fight to eradicate polio worldwide. As part of our celebration of the Foundation’s centennial, we’re honoring 20 global grant projects with special recognition. Learn more about the projects using our interactive map.
Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
