Thank you Dr. Chris Mills for your updates on our school district today and willingness to answer our questions!

Congratulations to Beth Nelson for receiving your Paul Harris award pin at today’s meeting as well! Your generosity doesn’t go unnoticed and we appreciate you being a Rotarian!

What is the Paul Harris Award? Great Question: “Continuing the legacy of our founder, the Paul Harris Fellow program recognizes individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.” –,Rotary%20Foundation%20of%20Rotary%20International.

If making a positive impact in other people’s lives in important to you. Than Rotary is the place to be! You can come check us out for free one, two, or even three times before deciding if becoming a rotarian is right for you. So, what are you waiting for?
Oh, and did you hear? We have scholarships available for our first year members to save you up to 60%. Don’t wait, come check out a TRF Rotary meeting soon. We would love to have you!

We look forward to hearing from our fellow Rotarian, Dr. Chris Mills, about the school district budget adjustments at today’s meeting.

If you aren’t a Rotarian already, today would be a great day to come check us out as a guest for free.

Please reach out with questions and happy President’s day!


Thank you to Paul Kamrud for being our guest speaker today and telling us about your and Priscilla Von Ende story opening The Piggy BBQ of Thief River Falls! We enjoyed hearing your story and look forward to enjoying more of your delicious food in the future!

Coming up next week we will have our TRF School Superintendent, Dr. Chris Mills, speaking about the ISD Budget Adjustments.

Last but not least, one of our Rotarians, Jim Dagg, is working with a friend to deliver used baseball gloves to children in Cuba. Therefore, if you have one or more laying around that isn’t being used. Please connect with Jim before this Friday to give him your old gloves so he can make sure the kids who need them in Cuba can get them.

Thank you all and we hope you have a great day!

Friendly reminder that our meeting this week is at our normal time and place= Tuesday at noon at the Legion.

We look forward to seeing our Rotarians and their guests there tomorrow for delicious meal and great conversation.

Wild poliovirus once paralyzed 7,000 children a week. In 2023, that number was only 12 children (all in a remote area between Pakistan and Afghanistan) and it’s been 11 weeks since the last case of wild polio was reported. This progress is possible because of brilliant innovators who discovered breakthroughs and frontline heroes who made sure that solutions reached children, even in the most remote parts of the world. And so much of that was possible because of philanthropy: Rotary International, the Gates foundation, and other organizations dedicated to a future where polio is a thing of the past. (adapted from the Gates Foundation).

With polio, a 99.999% reduction is great BUT NOT GOOD ENOUGH… The scourge of polio is not officially over until the world has three years of ZERO reported cases. Then, it is truly a Polio Free world.


REMINDER we will NOT be meeting at noon at the Legion on 2/6/24. Instead, we will be having a social get together at the Thief River Falls Curling Club on Friday, 2/9/24 at 5:30pm CT!
If you aren’t a Rotary member yet, that’s okay. We would love to have you as a guest for one or more of our meetings to learn more about our group and what we do within our community.

Thank you to Richard Baker, the new TRF Economic/Community Development Director, for being our guest speaker today!
We appreciate your history as a Rotarian and look forward to the community and economic development you bring to TRF.

Our next meeting is at noon at the Legion on January 2nd. Our guest speaker will be Mike Reishus from North Risk Partners discussing, “Affordable Care Act… Where are we now?” We look forward to seeing our members and some new guests again in a couple of weeks.
You do not have to be a Rotary member to attend a Rotary meeting as a guest. So, come on out to a lunch meeting to learn more about us and what we do.

Until then, Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and happy New Year!

The club held its 10th annual 3rd grade dictionary project on September 13, 2019. Each 3rd grader from TRF area schools received their very own dictionary. Thanks all who volunteered their time. Special thanks to Philip McKenzie for organizing the project 10 years in a row! A fine example of “Service Above Self”!
