Join us on Thursday, April 26 at noon at Celt's in downtown Farmington when we honor our STRIVE students for the 2017-2018 academic year. STRIVE stands for Students Taking a Renewed Interest in Valuing Education. In this student-led program, seniors from Farmington High School work toward improving their academic and personal skills as they move toward graduation. Rotarians participate as mentors and facilitators at weekly meetings. 
Farmington Rotary's final Students-of-the-Month recognition for the 2017-2018 academic year takes place at our May 3 meeting when we once again honor some worthy Farmington youth. We will recognize a senior from Farmington High School and a fifth-grade student from Meadowview Elementary School.
 
Join us at noon at Celt's in downtown Farmington to hear how these amazing young people so generously give of their time and talents and live out the Rotary motto of putting Service Above Self. Guests are encouraged to attend this inspiring meeting.
 
Thank you to Krysia, Janie, Lori, Shannon, Leshia and Lisa, who attended the District 5960 Conference of Clubs on April 20 where Farmington Rotary picked up four awards; Club of the Year for Community Service, runner up for Vocational Service and Public Image, and a District Governor's Citation.
 
Thank you to President Krysia for organizing and leading the charge on the awards applications, and to all of the board members who submitted information from their committee. And thanks to all Farmington Rotarians for #MakingADifference. We are clearly #PeopleOfAction!
President Krysia Moe welcomed Ann Hastings to Farmington Rotary on April 19. Ann is the director of violence prevention at 360 Communitites and has lived in Farmington for seven years. Ann is also a past member of the Hastings Rotary Club and enjoys running, gardening, hiking and reading.
 
Please reach out Ann and introduce yourself. We're excited to have her on board!
Talk about Ramble Jam in action!
 
Farmington Rotary presented 360 Communities with a check for $8,000 on April 19 to support Partners for Success. Partners for Success places family support workers in Farmington schools to help students and families overcome barriers to success by implementing effective home-based strategies that increase parental involvement, improve academic performance and connect families to community resources.
 
According to a 2015 study by the University of Minnesota's Center for Applied Research and Educational Improvement (CAREI), for every dollar invested in Partners For Success, a conservative estimate of $5 is returned in social benefits, which includes personal earnings gains, higher tax revenues, public health savings, and crime reduction. The return on investment could be more than $14 with a more aggressive interpretation of the data.
 
This is important work. And Farmington Rotary is a part of it because of your support for our fundraiser, Ramble Jam. Thank you for making this donation possible.
Farmington Rotary honored two outstanding students from Farmington schools during the April 12 Students-of-the-Month meeting. Fifth-grader Shelby Van Hecke from Akin Road Elementary School, and senior Percy Buckner from Farmington High School, were recognized.
 
Also recognized was senior citizen Darline Lehmann, who was nominated by Joy Lauterbach from Trinity Terrace.
 
Farmington Rotary honors students from local schools and a senior citizen each month from October through May who embody the Rotary motto of Service Above Self. Students are nominated by teachers and school administrators. Senior citizens are nominated by community partners.
Thank you to everyone who supported Ramble Jam in 2017. Whether you volunteered, sold raffle tickets, attended the event or contributed in another way, your support allowed Farmington Rotary to donate $58,036 to programs that supported families and changed lives in our community and around the world.
 
Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to pull off this amazing event. Without you, our 2017 donations would not have been possible.
