Ditch cleaning was completed on Monday April 24th!
Trivia Night 2017 was a success! 
A great night was had by all and a new team champion was crowned! 
On Wednesday December 21st many of our fellow Rotary Club members joined together at the John Lind House to celebrate Christmas and the holidays.  It was pleasing to see so many members and theirs guests attend the event.  We had roughly 45 people at the party.  The catered food was excellent and the conversation even better.  Ric Jacobson even brought a nice variety of his homemade wine.  Ric's wine did not last long so I expect all of it was very good!

Pastor Lisa Doege and Patty Paulson were our guests September 20th to talk about NUMAS Haus.
NUMAS Haus was created by the New Ulm Ministerial Association, with a great deal of support from individuals, churches, service clubs and local businesses. 
Doege, pastor at Nora Unitarian Universalist Church in Hanska, is vice president of the NUMAS Haus board of directors.  She said when NUMA began talking a couple of years ago about extending its ministry out into the community, the need for a homeless shelter became apparent.  "All of our traditions, Christian, Jewish and Muslim, call for caring for strangers, widows, orphans and the poor," she said.  The group learned that there were 40 students in the New Ulm School District who were considered homeless.  The group knew that tackling the issue of homelessness was immense, decided to start small and focus on helping single mothers with school-age children.  The house provided was remodeled into housing for three families, and that project, started two years ago, is not complete with the first family already in place. 
Patty Paulson is the supervisor of NUMAS Haus.  It is a job she is uniquely suited for, with degrees in social work and administration. 
The money donated was a joint effort between our District 5950 and our local members.

M0ve-In Date was exciting!
NUMAS Haus is the first shelter opening in the New Ulm area to provide temporary housing to young mothers and their children who otherwise have no place to go.
Our club donated and set up furniture for one of the bedrooms upstairs.
Kevin Sweeney, Aaron Lambrecht, Bob Reuter, Norm Kopp and Jim Spoon assisted in moving and setting up the furniture.  We found moving this furniture into and old house with narrow stairs was no easy task.  You can see in the picture Bob and Aaron having "fun" navigating the stairs.  We sure got our workout for the day!
Rotary club members Donna Lambrecht, Phil Schenck, Jim Spoon, Marc Burkhart and Ric Jacobsen also assisted with moving appliances into the NUMAS Haus.  All appliances in the house have been donated by our club. 
Our Club is so proud to be part of this renewed effort to help others in need in our community.
Speaker Bob Lenz spoke to a crowded gymnasium at New Ulm High School on Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2015. Lenz, founder of Life Promotions, speaks throughout the year to students about the "Dignity Revolution," a program that encourages students to respect and stand up for the dignity of all people. The anti-bullying campaign, sponsored by the New Ulm Rotary Club with the help of a District 5950 community grant, and the New Ulm Ministerial Association, reached thousands of students in Brown County Oct. 5, 6 and 7.

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.

ImageMembers 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.
