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.

 

If you would like to reserve your place in the boat let me know!

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

Global movement needed to reverse water crisis
This year's World Water Summit on 27 May in Seoul highlighted the progress being made: Over the last 25 years, more than 2.5 billion people gained access to improved drinking water, and 2 billion who didn't have adequate sanitation now do. Child deaths from water-related diseases dropped from 1.5 million to just over 600,000. The UN Millennium Development Goals' target for clean drinking water was met five years ahead of schedule.

In Ecuador, the powerful 7.8-magnitude quake that struck Saturday night has killed more than 400 people, with 2,500 injured. Those figures are expected to rise.
