We have reserved the new group camp site at Lake Bemidji State Park once again - which is a very nice and private site for our group to relax at, after destroying the competition.

Congratulations to the Denfeld Robotics Team, who swept the recent Lake Superior Regional competition and qualified for the FIRST Robotics World Championships in St. Louis! 

There are several competitions in their near future, including the World Championships, and the team is ramping up their fund raising efforts to supplement their travel.

They have put a call out to the community to assist in a painless (and eco-friendly) way!  The team sponsors a glossy paper drive and it’s one of their biggest fundraisers. 

If you already participate, a BIG THANKS, from the team  - and please continue to do so.  If you haven’t participated and want details (and they’ll even pick up the paper from your business/location!), please call (218)341-3545 or email them at DNA4009@gmail.com

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
