Service Above Self
Building Responsible Youth
The Minnetonka Rotary is proud to be part of these larger organizations but is a local community group that believes in serving our community. We don’t aspire to change the world, but we do want to be part of the solution and not the problem. We want to make a difference in our community and help in a world that has many challenges. We meet every Wednesday at 7:15AM. Our meeting has an easy, friendly format, an interesting speaker, and breakfast is available. We finish promptly at 8:30AM, because we know that the rest of the world is waiting for us to participate; and after being involved for an hour in a Rotary Meeting we are ready to meet and greet the world too.
If you have come here to find out more about Rotary and how it works, you are in the right place. The navigation bar directly above will guide you to information made available by Rotary International explaining how, what, and why Rotary is important. The links are somewhat self-explanatory, and when you follow them, they will expand upon the bigger picture.
If you would like more information specifically about the Minnetonka Rotary, look in the site navigation bar nearer the top for "Press Releases" to see what we have been doing lately and for our Newsletter, "The Rotary Spoke" you can see what one of our meetings is like. Further resources and information can be found in the "VISITOR INFO" and "MEMBERS AREA" links will give some more files of interest about us. Also there is a link called "FORMS" to capture a Membership Application or a Grant Application.
Let me summarize: The Minnetonka Rotary is a service organization in the Hopkins / Minnetonka area that believes in Rotary International's motto of “Service Above Self”. Our motto says we focus upon “Building Responsible Youth” in a variety of ways in our community. We also help and support a bigger picture that includes polio eradication, clean water, feeding people, emergency relief, and other challenges in the world. Every Rotary Club is different and the Minnetonka Rotary wants to do all of these serious things but to have some fun at the same time. So in a little more light hearted manner we have a secondary motto... “The club that’s more fun than you want it to be” ….and if you want to find out what that’s all about we’ll see you at our meeting next Wednesday, at 7:15AM in room #233 at the Eisenhower Community Center, which is located at 1001 Hiway 7.
