Mentor a New Rotarian
Dear friends,
As we grow, new members will be joining our ranks and we need seasoned members to help get them settled and keep them involved.  Please consider volunteering to mentor a new Rotarian and build one-to-one relationships with other members of our club.  You could meet outside of Rotary if that would help, or just check in through email.  As we develop a mentor program, we welcome your ideas for how to fold new members in to active service.   If you are interested, please talk with Mike Ferber.
With joy on the journey,
EK-S Rotary Board of Directors
January Social: Mystery Art Night


Our January social was held at the Eagan Art House.  We worked on a clay mosaic project that we can donate to the Eagan Rotary Gala Fundraiser.  We cut clay, used colored clay to create surface decoration, and tried a technique called mocha diffusion to create little tree patterns on tiles.
The clay will dry, be fired the first time in the kiln, and then glazed and fired for the final time.  Finished tiles will be added to the project and grouted in place to create a whole pattern.  In all, there were 12 participants with Rotarians and guest.  We look forward to more socials to get us all out of our comfort zones and learn new things with great friends!
The Eagan Art House has monthly "Mystery Art Nights" for adults.  You can register for Eagan Art House classes through Eagan Park and Recreation Department.  Try something new every month and get involved in the art community.  There are classes for every age group in a wide variety of creative media.
Souper Drive Update
Thanks to all who have brought soup for the drive to benefit The Open Door Food Pantry!  In week one, EK-S Rotary donated 43 pounds of soup, and in week two, combined donations from both Eagan Rotary clubs brought in more than 50 additional pounds of soup.  We have TWO more meetings to complete the drive.  Challenge yourself and your network to flex their SOUPER muscles and bring more soup.
There is a special this week at Hy-Vee with tomato and chicken noodle soup for 29 CENTS per can!
Two more weeks to be SOUPER!
