The Lake Elmo Rotary puts funds back into the Local Community.

This year we are pledging a large portion of the proceeds to:

The Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf

Soon they are building a new facility at the corner of Lake Elmo, Oakdale & Woodbury. We plan to help with the refrigeration needed to be able to provide Fresh Foods for families in need in our community.

A portion of our funds will also be used to help programs at our local elementary school and other local organizations looking for assistance in improving our community!

See your Rotarian for more information and tickets to this anticipated event!

Lake Elmo Rotary Helps Santa Provide Christmas Joy


Members of Lake Elmo Rotary had the honor to help Santa provide Christmas gifts to families in need at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in St. Paul.

The club members provided funds to purchase enough gifts for each of over 100 children to take something special home with them, and also assisted the kids in making craft projects to celebrate the season.

The true spirit of LERC was shown though in the enthusiasm (dress included) shown by the members acting as elves assisting Santa. The joy was evident on the faces of the kids and their parents alike.

Serving those around us is what LERC, and Rotary in general, is all about.

Lake Elmo Rotary Serves Families at Ronald McDonald House

Rotarians: Pam Baker, Liz Johnson, Lisa Kittel, Tamra Hartman, Michael Schaffer, Kelly Thauwald, Denise Cornell, Rotarian Guest Emily Thauwald

Members of Lake Elmo Rotary had the privilege to serve families with children undergoing medical treatment at Children's Hospital - St. Paul through the Ronald McDonald House located within the hospital.

Many families with children fighting illness and disease have a difficult time managing the rest of their family responsibilities and caring for other children while supporting their child through treatment. In many cases, meals fall to a matter of convenience and necessity - quick and off schedule.

The Lake Elmo Inn graciously catered the event, and the faces of those dining with us showed a mix of relief, joy, and gratitude. As many people know, a good meal can do wonders for the spirit.  

Lake Elmo Rotary donates $1,500 to update LEPR archery range

Commissioner Karla Bigham, Rotary President-elect Tedi Carlson, Commissioner Fran Miron, Rotary Past President Tony Haider, Commissioners Gary Kriesel, and Lisa Weik, and Wayne Sandberg, county engineer, celebrated the gift.

The Lake Elmo Rotary Club donated $1,500 to Washington County to update the archery range at the Lake Elmo Park Reserve. The County Board accepted the gift Sept. 27. Rotary members Lisa Boone, current president, Tedi Carlson, president elect, and Tony Haider, past president, were instrumental in providing the gift. The Lake Elmo Rotary Club successfully applied for a Rotary International district grant to be used for the project. The archery range is operated year round, weather permitting, and is an activity area for summer youth day camp groups. The donation will benefit not only the youth in these programs, but also the general public using the archery range.
