The Rotary Club of Excelsior met on Tuesday, December 15th by Zoom for a Christmas Trivia Fun meeting with Tim Litfin doing the presiding.  Tim led the trivia competition that included Christmas music, TV and Movies and names of actors and performers all around the Christmas theme.  There were 27 questions in all but some of the questions had multiple parts and points.  It was great fun with hilarious competition.  The hands-down winner was Jill Holter in 1st place then Linda Gustafson, Gary Thompson, Marianne Laurent, Molly Swenson, and then Steve and Karen Frazier.  Tim did a great job and we all thanked him for all the work it took to put all the questions and music together.  Following the Christmas Trivia we had Happy Bucks and members were in a generous mood as we raised $57 for our Education scholarship Fund.  The meeting ended with everyone wishing each other a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
 
Our next meeting will be on January 5, 2021 with the Board of Directors Meeting at 11:00 followed by our Club Meeting featuring former District 5950 Governor Russ Michaletz presenting on The Rotary Foundation and a District Update.  Also you will want to register (received in your e-mail) for the Zoom Mid-Year Assembly on January 16th for a great program.   Then on January 19th our Club Meeting will feature Mayor Brad Wiersum giving an update on the City of Minnetonka.

“Hi Mom and Dad, (Note from Tiffany Frazier to Karen and Steve Frazier)
Thank you for letting me go shopping for the kids gifts and gift cards for the teens on behalf of the Excelsior Rotary! I was able to get 20 assorted fisher price baby toys: 10 girl toys-6 Disney Princess Barbies, and 4 Baby Dolls; 10 Boy toys-4 Tonka trucks, 4 fire trucks, and 2 Police Cars; and 25 $25 gift cards for the teenagers!
It warmed my heart to know that so many families will be blessed with these toys during the holiday season that might not have had gifts for their little ones! The Excelsior Rotary is so awesome for supporting those in need and helping those not only in our community but in the surrounding areas! Here are a few pictures of the toys – Cart of toys and cards at Minnetonka Target, Tracie & me at Resource West and Tracie with the gifts from the Excelsior Rotary.  Hugs! Night! Tiff”
