Jenny Hedal introduced the speaker for the meeting, Emma Mulhern.  Emma is the past year (’19-’20) president of North Star Rotex.  She is a senior at the University of Minnesota studying International Business and Supply Chain Management.  Emma became involved with Rotex after spending her high school junior year in Finland through the Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) program.  The purpose of the presentation was to inform our club about RYE and Rotex, where Rotex fits in Rotary and how Rotarians can support Rotex.
North Star Youth Exchange represents districts 5950 and 5960, and was founded in 1961.  Through North Star Youth Exchange, each year approximately 90 students get to have exchange experiences in 30 different countries.  Of the 90 students, about 50-60 are long-term exchanges and the others are short-term.  Long-term exchanges are 10-12 months where 15-19 year olds live with host families and attend local high schools representing their home countries.  Short-term exchanges can be family-to-family where two participants spend one month with each family during the summer.  There are also international camps for 1-3 weeks with themed international experiences.  Participants up to 25 years old can participate depending on the camp.
Emma discussed the application process and how participants are vetted.  She indicated there are always more applicants than available exchanges so it can be competitive.  Emma talked about her exchange experience in Finland where she played high school hockey in a town of 10,000 people. 
North Star Rotex is an organization where participants are former long-term RYE participants.  To become a member, RYE participants can either attend an overnight event or wait one year from returning.  Rotex is a service organization and a community of people with similar experiences. 
President Deb Nygaard called the first Roseville Rotary Club in-person and virtual hybrid meeting to order at 12:15 p.m. and led the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance. Ed Studniski offered the invocation. Jenny Hedal was the online greeter today.  There were 20 people online and nine Rotarians and guest present in the meeting room. President Nygaard also led us in the Rotary 4-way Test at meeting’s end.
Happy Dollars: Moments of personal gratitude were shared by Brad Kirscher, Gayland Bender, Ed Studniski, Kathy Hughitt, Dave Gilberstadt and Jan Vanderwall.
Roseville Rotary welcomed Packy Mader as a guest speaker this week. Packy spoke to the club about his new book, "More Minnesota Gold", The new book includes Minnesota's only 5-time Olympian, world record holders in running and swimming, and how these remarkable athletes "give back" to their sport, school, and community.
