This week's program featured two Classification Speeches given by our newest club members.


First, Phyllis Rousseau, took her place at the podium. She said she is a native of Carlton, raised by Hay Lake and now living next to the greenhouse in Carlton. On September 28th she will celebrate her 59th birthday. She's a mother of 4 children, all grown up now. She has 14 grandchildren between 2.5 and 16 years of age, who are all involved in sports. Her challenge is to keep all the games straight so she doesn't miss any. Phyllis works at WKLK Radio as an Advertising Executive. Kerry Rodd is her boss. Before that she worked at the Pine Journal for several years. She also is a bartender once a week at Wabegon Inn, is a Vikings fan and loves to play Texas hold'em. She also loves music, travel and outdoor recreation. She's glad to be in the Cloquet Rotary club again now that she has discretionary time in her work.

Next, Jennifer Graham told us about herself. She is from Cloquet, her parents work here and her roots in the community are deep. She has 3 sons. Two are students at FDLTCC and one is in high school. When she was 23 she moved to Wisconsin Rapids for 14 years. Then she went back to school to receive her four year degree in Accounting and Business administration. She returned to Cloquet and learned to be self employed. She started Cloquet Bookkeeping and now is pursuing her CPA license. For this she went back to school, with her exams coming up soon. When she is completed she will have her MBA degree. Her uncle, Allen Anway, has counseled her on her education and career.
