Saint Paul, MN
United States of America
Today’s was the annual joint meeting with Minneaoplis Rotary and 116th Anniversary of Rotary International
President Jason Bradshaw called the meeting to order at 12:15 and gave a special welcome to our three District Governors: Ken Crabb, Joe Kovarik, and Jerry Miegs (who is also former director of the RI board) and to our district Governor nominees: Dayle Quigley (5950) and Lloyd Campbell (5960)

Jireh Mabamba from Minneapolis Rotary and Twin Cites Rotaract led the clubs in the 4-way test and offered the inspirational moment.
Jireh took inspiration from a comment he had heard from RI President Holger Knaack: “We believe that everything we do, big or small, creates opportunity for people who need our help. Everything we do opens another opportunity for someone somewhere.” That someone was me (Jireh) and that somewhere was South Africa. Rotary brought me to the US on a scholarship, leading to my education and to my wife.  That Rotary doorway of opportunity is the reason I am here today.

What will “Rotary Opens Opportunities” mean in our post COVID world and how might it change Rotary for the long-term? 
How has serving as your RI President during this unprecedented time changed me.

Rotary Clubs 10 & 9 are pleased to welcome 2020-2021 RI President Holger Knaack via Zoom as speaker and guest of honor at our annual Hybrid Joint Club Meeting.

2020-2021 RI President Holger Knaack

Knaack is the CEO of Knaack KG, a real estate company. He was previously a partner and general manager of Knaack Enterprises, a 125-year-old family business which provides sales intelligence on more than 120 million businesses.

For his Rotary vision, Knaack wants to see more women in leadership roles and see Rotaractors play an integral role in how new clubs are formed and run. He encouraged district leaders to create new club models and rethink what it means to be in Rotary, and allow young people to be the architects of these new clubs.

“We have to be open to new approaches, and creating unique clubs for younger people is just part of the solution,” said Knaack. “Let Rotaractors decide what kind of Rotary experience works best for them. These young people are bright, energetic, and they get things done.”

In stressing the need for Rotary members to embrace change, Knaack noted that time won’t slow down for Rotary: “We will not let rapid change defeat us. We will capture this moment to grow Rotary, making it stronger, more adaptable, and even more aligned with our core values.”

The guest fee for lunch is $25.00 payable onsite (does not apply to Club 9 or Club 10 members).

A discounted parking rate of $5.00 is available at the InterContinental parking ramp

Due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns, the RYLA planning team has made the difficult decision to cancel Camp RYLA for 2021. The planning team explored the possibility of moving RYLA to a date later in the year, but it was not feasible. Camp RYLA 2022 has been scheduled for April 21-26, 2022.
We would like to thank the sponsoring Clubs, guidance counselors and other school staff for the work you do every year to select and send students to Camp RYLA. We appreciate your support and hope you will consider sending students next year.
