Kindness Campaign June Update!

“Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.”

                                                          James Matthew Barrie

June is here and brings with it lots of sunshine as we approach the first official day of summer! The fantastic May weather provided plenty of time to help a neighbor with yard work. Some of you enlisted the help of your children and turned this challenge into a family event – way to go!! Thanking those in uniform for their service often ended with them thanking us for thanking them! More magical conversations happening that normally would have gone unspoken.

For our June challenge we are turning the tables and asking you to do something kind for yourself. We are all so busy meeting the demands of work, family and all the other stuff life throws at us that we don’t have much time to be good to ourselves. Happy summer – I hope you will make time to eat a Popsicle, listen to the birds and watch the sunset.

As always, we’d love to hear what you do this month! You’ll find a link to email us at

Always remember…kindness is contagious!

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.

Welcome to the Home of the Lake Elmo Rotary Club

For good people, great programs and a fabulous breakfast, please join us every Wednesday morning 7:00 a.m. at the Lake Elmo Inn

We look forward to meeting you as much as we believe you will enjoy the hospitality and time spent in the company of friends and neighbors committed in service to community.
