Northfield Rotary Club - Tue, 07/11/2017 - 9:14pm

Today’s Program | Thursday, July 13, 2017

Today: Nate Watters, Keepsake Cidery (Morlan)

Next Week: Amelia Ousley, Northfield Composting, (W. Sivanich)

Birthdays: George Davis (7/1), Kari Nelson (7/12) and Jan Stevens (7/15) 

Statement of Purpose: Northfield Rotary Club is dedicated to promoting peace and understanding through service and shared experience. We invite people from all corners of the community to join us as we partner with others to support youth, build sustainable infrastructure and preserve our planet. 

Last Week:
The Northfield Rescue Squad is in need of a new heavy duty rescue truck.

Aramis Wells, captain and a 17-year veteran of the rescue squad, said it will cost somewhere north of $600,000. The Northfield VFW is taking the lead in the fundraising, but is canvassing the community for support. The campaign began this year; they hope to order the truck in 2019 and have it in operation by 2020.

This will be the rescue squad’s sixth vehicle since its inception 1959. The truck currently in service was purchased in 2000. Much has changed since then. The new truck will have numerous safety features, such as anti-lock breaks, rear camera for backing up and air bags. It will also accommodate newer and more effective extrication tools to deal with stronger automobile design.

The Northfield Rescue Squad is an all-volunteer group with 30 members who cover 144 square miles in and around Northfield. They responded to 229 calls last year, 85 were motor vehicle accidents.

If you are interested in donating, go online to NAFRS.org or contact Aramis at musketeer78@yahoo.com. You can also support the campaign through Amazon Smile.

Mini Classification:
John Ehresmann began his dental practice in Northfield in 1982. He worked with Buck and Remes at 711 Division Street while his wife, Gretchen, practiced medicine across the street. They raised two children here. John retired in 2011 and, for the past seven years, he has volunteered on natural disaster teams for the American Red Cross.

New Banner: President Wakely unfurled the new Rotary International banner. It reads: “Rotary Makes A Difference,” a slogan endorsed by our new Rotary International president, Ian Riseley of Austrialia.

Fond Farewell: Last week, Wanzita, Daniel and Eric all reported on their East Coast Rotary trip. New York City, Boston’s Freedom Trail and a roller coaster ride with Eric were some of the highlights. The three returned home last weekend. Nico and Mateo returned home last month.

Guests: Marty Anderson (Alan Anderson), Penny Hillemann (Kaczmarek), Kelly Chang (Hoschouer)

Scholarship Enhancement: Wendy Sivanich

Announcements:

— Jan Stevens invited all to enjoy this year’s abbreviated Vintage Band Festival Saturday, July 29, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Bridge Square. Great music; great time.

— Larry Fowler announced that a sculpture, “Between Earth and Sky,” created and donated by Mac Gimse, retired St. Olaf College Art professor, is being installed near the Dundas bike trail head. It’s 32-feet tall and made of stainless steel. There will be a formal dedication in early September.

— If anyone would like to be a new member mentor, please see Barry Carlson. Being a mentor simply means that you would be willing to check-in or meet with a new member from time to time to answer their questions about the club. It’s a good way to get to know new people.

St. Olaf named a ‘Best Buy’ by Fiske Guide to Colleges

St. Olaf College - Tue, 07/11/2017 - 2:13pm

St. Olaf College has been named a “Best Buy” school in the 2018 edition of Fiske Guide to Colleges.

For more than 30 years, Fiske Guide to Colleges has chosen a select group of schools, noted for quality academic offerings and affordable cost, for its annual “Best Buy” list.

St. Olaf is one of 18 private colleges and universities in the U.S., Canada, and the UK named to this year’s “Best Buy” list.

As this CNBC story notes, the schools on the list “combine affordable costs and solid academics.” In addition to being one of the nation’s leading liberal arts colleges, St. Olaf has a long tradition of meeting the demonstrated need of all admitted students.

The Fiske Guide to Colleges, created by a former education editor for The New York Times, Edward Fiske, provides profiles of “more than 300 of the best and most interesting institutions in the nation.”
