Deb Lentz sinks a putt on the 18th green during the Rotary golf tournament at New Ulm Country Club Monday, June 1. Looking on are Colleen Skillings (left), Julie Baumgartner (second from right) and Tori Gronholz. The annual tournament has raised money for a variety of Rotary causes over the years, from Polio Plus to the New Ulm Medical Center Surgery Project, to STRIVE, to the new Ethics Program that the Rotary Club sponsors for local high school students.
Members of the New Ulm Rotary Club pulled a “cash mob” visit at Hope & Faith Floral and Gifts on Tuesday, Aug. 19. The club had heard at its meeting Tuesday from Missy Marti and Jean Geistfeld about the “Go Local” program that Citizens Bank Minnesota has been promoting, to encourage patronage of local businesses. The bank’s employees have been holding “cash mobs,” descending on local businesses to spend $20 or so during the holiday season to help local businesses.
This year the Rotary Club of New Ulm turns 75 years old. The club was organized on July 1, 1938.
Special events are being planned for a celebration in September. District Governor Diann Kirby will be visiting on Sept. 17 to present a commemorative plaque, and the club is planning to hold a "Business After Hours" reception. Details will be announced later.
Congratulations to all New Ulm Rotarians, past and present.
