For the good of Eagan

Community leaders representing 29 charitable organizations in Eagan gathered for a photo after the Wednesday, November 18 Rotary lunch meeting. During our annual community grant program at the Eagan Community Center, these representatives each received a check from the Eagan Rotary club and spoke briefly about their charity and how their money would be used. The grant recipients included the Cub Scouts, a homeless shelter, transportation for disabled, birthday gifts for needy children, a food-shelf, Eagan Art House, July 4th Funfest and a 4H club; to name several. Those dollars are raised every February at our annual Eagan Rotary art gala, a black-tie optional dinner with silent and live auctions, entertainment and corporate sponsors.

  6. If everyone lit just one little candle and donated a bit of money, the world would be a brighter place.

    More power to you all.
