Good morning District 5960 Rotarians!
By now you must have August 30 circled on your Rotary Calendar, right?! If not, why not? As mentioned in the Rotary year kick-off video (, the Rotary Blitz is coming to the Minnesota State Fair! Now is the time to make plans to join with Rotarians from Districts 5960, 5950, and 5580.
We need you and yours (families encouraged) to build a blitz with hundreds of our upper Midwest Rotary Family. And what better way to throw a party than at the "Great Minnesota Get-Together!" We are not the only ones that recognize how spectacular this annual must-go event is. Newsweek recently honored it as the sole North American entry [“Americana at it’s best”], in late summer worldwide festivals.
If it’s been a while since your last fair visit, now’s the time to get reacquainted with this Minnesota staple, and no better way than with a couple hundred Rotarian friends and family!
Our Public Image team is working on ways to get us noticed through the day. Maybe the Governor will declare this Rotary Day at the Fair?!
We encourage you to bring your family members to share in the FUN! Kids 10 and over are welcome to work alongside their parents/ grandparents in “act of service” in Equimania” in the Horse barn. Forty volunteers will receive FREE Fair admission tickets!
We are also looking for groups to blitz broadcast booths (television and radio stations) through the day.
But most important, wear your (NEW/Present logo) shirt, plan to meet and greet your Rotary family and friends, and post and share your photos in social media. This is a unique 3-District event, designed to show off Rotary’s good works across the region,
As you know, D5960 is geographic host and originator of this idea, so we want to show up in big numbers!
Looking forward to seeing you there and “Dancin’ on the Ceiling” at the end of a fabulous Rotary Day! (Lionel Richie will be performing in the Grandstand at 7:30 p.m. that night - tickets must be purchased in advance).
See the flyer link below for ALL the details on how you can connect with other Rotarians as we all Share Rotary! 
PS—When you order a People of Action T-shirt, profits go to Polio; each district is recognized.
I look forward to "Connecting" with all of you very soon!
Yours in Rotary,
