Glamorous for Rotary

Eagan Rotary exchange student, Jose' from Spain, happily posed with the lovely ladies at last night's annual Eagan Rotary gala fundraiser. "Winter Games" was the Olympic theme!

The Wilsons and Rippleys smiled as the 370 guests arrived in the Eagan Community Center.

VIPs and Guests surfed the many silent auction tables to bid while socializing and enjoying appetizers with their adult beverages!

Rotarians, business people, local politicians and the area beautiful people gathered to support the fundraising of the Eagan Rotary Club.

Corporate sponsors wore blue ribboned medals and added over $40,000 to the revenue raising extravaganza!

The delicious dinner and program concluded the evening with the exciting live auction as the "dessert!"  Preliminary estimates are a total of almost $65,000 raised!

A snowy way...

1 - I lift my eyes to the hills -
from where will my help come?
2 - My help comes from the LORD,
who are heaven and earth.
3 - He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
4 - He who keeps Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 - The LORD is your keeper;
the LORD is your shade at your right hand.
6 - The sun shall not strike you by day,
nor the moon by  night.
7 - The LORD will keep you from all evil;
he will keep your life.
8 - The LORD will keep your going out
and your coming in from this time on
and forevermore.
