Ryan Micke came forward to introduce two videos about Rotary International. 
 
The first video about the history of Rotary began with Rotary founder, Paul Harris, calling the first meeting together in an office in Chicago in 1905. The group decided to call the club "Rotary" since they would rotate their meeting place at members' offices. This video was cut short due to technical difficulties. So we went to video number two, about the Results of Rotary, a wordless silent video with music accompaniment, showing colorful images of projects that Rotary does to promote peace, health, water availability, helping babies, literacy, and training to start up businesses. These are all international projects. Next, Pres. Judy spoke about the community projects our Rotary club is involved in, such as getting a handicapped swing at Churchill School, Ashley's Playground at Braun Park, sending 6 Jr. Rotarians to Camp RYLA in Crookston, hosting Jr. Rotarians at our meetings, giving dictionaries to 3rd graders and individualized books to Kindergarteners, supporting Just Kids Dental, the Salvation Army, the school patrol, and more. She asked if any Jr. Rotarians might know Rotary's motto, and Nathan Sunde from Esko knew it is "Service Above Self". Pres. Judy concluded by saying that Rotary changes people's lives and gives members a chance to practice social responsibility. She led us in reciting the Rotary 4-Way Test, rang the bell and adjourned the meeting.
