With giving service to our community and surrounding area, we
are helping make the world a better place and show our caring ways for the people we serve.
In the past, we have held many celebrations for the children,
we have helped many in need, we have cleaned up the highways, painted picnic tables, washed cars and so much more. We have
held an Annual Santa Party, Halloween Party, marched in parades and sponsored the Rice Fun Day Kiddie Parade. We hold an annual
event to raise money for Toys for Tots (pictured above) with this year being one of our most successful yet. We have
also done an annual school supply drive for our local elementary school, and this year awarded scholarship money to a very
deserving young individual from our school district.
We promote many other organizations that look at the ongoing
serious problems in our society today. Our Priority Project this year is Isaac's Journey that addresses pediatrics cancer.
Our Women's Wellness programming area works with the March of Dimes as well as many important health issues. Our Youth of
Today programming held it's first Bike Rodeo and Cookout and will be holding it's first 5K Run/Walk to support Prevent Child
Abuse Minnesota. Our Community Connections area has held an annual Safety Clinic that adds more and more useful information
for the community and our residents with many fun activities.
We do a lot of service in many different ways and are always
willing to do more.
The growth aspect of our organization is a twofold process.
One is in a way of personal growth, what you can bring to the
organization, what you have to offer and share. This is done by becoming involved and being present for events.
The second way for growth is what you receive when you have
participated in an event. What you have learned and what has touched your heart.
Once you walk into the door, you instantly feel the warmth of
the new friends waiting to become a part of your life.
We also like to offer time for just getting to know each
other. This can also include members of your family. As meetings are for you, some socials are for families too.
There is no one on earth that does not need a friend, for to
be a friend is one of life's greatest accomplishments.
We welcome you to our chapter and are excited to get to know
