Last Week:
Who in their right mind would attempt to bring 30 bands to Northfield in Minnesota’s mid-summer to play 100 concerts over a four-day span and live to talk about it?

Enter Paul Niemisto, founder and artistic director of Northfield’s Vintage Band Festival, affectionately known as our own musical maniac.

This year is the 10th anniversary of the festival, now the premier event of its kind in the United States. What started as conference for music historians punctuated by a few band performances quickly was turned on its head. In year one, it became a band festival with a conference on the side and it has stayed that way.

This year, bands from Germany, Illinois, Iowa, Florida, Indiana, Wisconsin and two dozen from Minnesota will converge on Northfield July 28-31 to entertain thousands at concerts scattered throughout the community and in nearby towns.

The term vintage is broadly defined for the purposes of the festival. Paul said it includes bands with lots of brass and wind instruments who do historic music from the Civil War, those that do complete re-enactments with authentic vintage uniforms and instruments, those that play ethnic music, and those that perform swing and military music.

Paul said he is very pleased with the unbridled enthusiasm of the musicians who look forward to performing at the festival and pleased with Northfield’s embrace of the event.

“It means that the vision and that risk we took back in 2006 has really paid off and that it’s been a great thing for the community,” Paul said.

The festival costs $100,000 to produce. Paul said donations are appreciated.

Mini Classification:
Jan Stevens knows her geography. She lives 45 minutes from an international airport and 50 minutes from Mayo Clinic, two resources she values highly.

She came to Northfield in 1971 as the youngest faculty wife at St. Olaf College. When her husband, Stan, moved into the private sector, they relocated to Champaign, Illinois, where Jan received her Ph.d while raising three children. They came back to live in the Northfield area. Her kids finished school and all were Rotary exchange students. Jan has worked in real estate for Coldwell Banker for 25 years and is the current president of the Vintage Band Festival board.

Guests: Kevin Skip and Lillie Meakin (Child) and Frank Wakely (Wakely)

Scholarship Enhancement: The Old Trapper, Bob Will, hit it big.

Dave Wolf completed a 515-mile bike tour in Northern Minnesota to raise funds for Minnesota Habitat. He was one of 125 riders who collectively raised $260,000 for the organization.

 We will be partnering again with the Eagan Rotary Club and Northfield High School to host an Ethics Workshop for 40 to 50 high school students on Tuesday, Oct. 25, at Community Resource Bank. If you are interested in helping plan or participating in the all-day event, see David Koenig.

Launched in 2006, the artist in residence program at LBSA builds community through creative opportunities that help individuals move from isolation to greater engagement. A collection of recent works that came out of this program is currently on display at the Northfield Arts Guild’s gallery at the Allina Clinic in Northfield, and runs through the end of July. Thank you for supporting the artist in residence program; it is sustained by donations from members of the Northfield community. Read more by clicking here.

Last Week:
The Defeat of Jesse James Days Ambassador Scholarship Program is not a beauty pageant. Julie Eddy, chair of the celebration event, is clear about that.

No swim suit competition, no talent contest, it is a program that revolves around education, leadership and volunteerism. Participants have the opportunity to learn new skills, learn the value of service, and discover a sense of personal empowerment.

This hasn’t always been the focus of the program. The first Miss Defeat of Jesse James Days was selected in 1948 because she sold the most celebration buttons. In 1953, it became a feeder to the Miss Minnesota and Miss America beauty pageants. In the 1970s, a young woman was selected with an eye for who would best promote the Defeat of Jesse James Days celebration. In 2013, the program changed its focus and began selecting three young people, an ambassadorial team, who would promote the community and the celebration and in return receive a learning opportunity and a $2,000 educational scholarship.

The program is open to young people 17 to 22. Each year six to 10 participate, Julie said. Sarah Spaulding, Vanessa Gonzalez and Devon Deanovic were selected ambassadors last August for 2016. Over the year, they represented Northfield and the celebration at 80 events. Their service ends when the new ambassadors are selected this August.

The girls described their experience as “life-changing.” All are in college now and say they have benefited from their experience. Their tour of duty has given them a window to a wider world. They have discovered new things about themselves and learned the benefit of connecting with people of all ages and providing service to others.

A Junior Ambassador program was initiated by the Dundas Jaycees in 1992. They regularly have 15 or so children age 6 to 8 participate.

Julie Eddy said Rotary can help DJJD by promoting the ambassador program and passing on service opportunities for the program.

Birthdays: Nancy Amerman and Kari Nelson (7/12)

Next Week: Paul Niemisto, Vintage Band Festival (Stevens)

Last Week:
There is truth in the old adage that we learn to read so we can read to learn. Research suggests reading proficiency at third grade is the most reliable predictor of a child’s future high school success. 

Ben Flannery, MD, a pediatrician with Northfield Hospital & Clinics, is a believer. He is now promoting reading and literacy to parents at well-child checks. He considers it a health and wellness issue, right up there with sleep, healthy diets, safety and dental care.

The clinic has joined with Northfield Promise, a Healthy Community Initiative-inspired effort to provide kids with the tools they need to succeed, to use a program called “1,2,3… Read With Me.” It was conceived by CC Linstroth, a local retired teacher and reading specialist. The idea is that every family that visits Northfield’s FamilyHealth Medical Clinic for a well-child check will leave with a free book, a sticker with suggestions for how to best share a book with children and a pep talk about the importance of reading.

Even children as young as four months can benefit from a reading session with an adult, Dr. Flannery said. It helps lay down optimal patterns for brain development and has the associated benefit of creating an important bond between parent and child. For those for whom English is not their native language, reading to a child in Spanish or another language has benefit, too, Dr. Flannery said.

In his introduction of our speakers, Chris Weber said Rotary’s literacy project supports what Dr. Flannery and the clinic are doing. We have helped facilitate the placement of book collection boxes at four elementary schools and the Northfield Community Resource Center and the placement of distribution shelves at several locations around town.

Mini Classification:
Chris Weber was born and raised in Illinois. He met his wife, Deanne, at St. Olaf College. They moved to Northfield in 1999 and now have two children, a daughter who is active in music and tennis, and a son who is into basketball, golf, cello, reading and video games. Chris is an investment advisor with Cetera and leads the club’s literacy initiative.

New Member:

Andre Sivanich was formally inducted into the club. His sponsor, Jim Holden, remembers coaching Andre’s high school tennis team. He said Andre was a four-year starter, played doubles and served as a captain. He also organized the memorial for Tom Cieslukowski, a former teammate who died in 2012.

 Guests: Doris Welke (Prowe)

Scholarship Enhancement: Nate Heilman

Announcements:
The new password to access the Members Area of the Rotary Club website is lasswell, the last name of our new president, no caps.

Last Week:
During his 38 years as a prosecuting attorney, St. Paul’s Al Zradzil has seen his share of domestic abuse cases. One in four women will be victimized at some point in her life. Men are victims, too.

Domestic violence is chronic and progressive, Al said, and cuts across all socio-economic lines. It encompasses much more than physical abuse. It also includes verbal abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, isolation, intimidation and surveillance. It is ultimately about power and control.

In most cases, a victim makes seven attempts to leave an abusive relationship before succeeding, Al said. Financial stability is at the heart of their calculus.

“They should not have to choose between financial ruin and physical survival,” he said.

Al calls on businesses to be more intentional in their support of victims of domestic violence. The workplace is their lifeline. It is a refuge for victims, safer than home, out of the reach of their abuser. Yet, their depression, anxiety or PTSD can affect their work, and they do not want to lose their jobs.

He suggests businesses adopt policies that speak to this issue. At a minimum, he recommends businesses have a list of supportive resources available for employees. He also encourages employers to give time off for court appearances, therapy appointments and time to heal. Modest financial support while a victim of abuse makes a necessary transition is helpful, too.

“It is not a total solution, but one way for Rotarians to reduce domestic violence,” Al said.

Mini Classification:
Bruce Morlan did the math and concludes that our consumption of 300 million years worth of carbon deposits over a mere 300 years is causing global warming, a dangerous experiment in need of a remedy.

Presidential Tribute:
Russ Halverson’s service as president this past year was acknowledged with a rousing chorus of “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow.” Russ thanked board members for their support this past year. He noted that during 2015-16, the club raised $60,000 and contributed funds to international projects, local projects and scholarships.

“We are changing the world through our gifts of time and talent,” he said.

Michelle Lasswell is our new president. Serving with her on the board are: Jean Wakely, Vice President and President-Elect; David Wolf, Treasurer; Erin Bailey, Secretary; Todd Thompson, International Service; Scott Richardson, Club Service; Chris Heineman, Community Service; Jacob Conway, Vocational Service; Barry Carlson, Communications, Public Service; Brad Frago, Youth Protection Officer; and Russ Halverson, Past President.

Paul Harris Fellowships
Erica Zweifel and Vicky Langer were presented with their Paul Harris Fellowships last week. That brings the number of members who are fellows to 74, almost half the club. Both said they were inspired by Rotary’s mission and projects and the projects it undertakes.

A Fond Farewell:
It was Nicole’s last meeting with his before her return to Paraguay. She treated us to a turn on her violin, accompanied by Richard Collman on piano. Judy Brown-Wescott said Nicole is an outstanding young woman, who will be missed. There is a ray of hope, however. She did tour St. Olaf College and there is a chance, a chance, she might think about applying there for college. Good luck, Nicole. You were a delight.

Guests: Tessa Heineman (Heineman), Dan, Mary and Maggie Magnuson and Kathleen and Sage Brinton (Nicole); Nikko and friend (Frago).
