Our club meets every Tuesday from noon-1:00 at the beautiful Minden Opera House (Nied-Winther Room).  

Catered meals are served at noon.

A short meeting begins around 12:20.  Then a program is presented at 12:30.
We also pass the "Polio Plus Jar".  Loose change and loose dollar bills go in the jar with all funds applied toward Polio Plus.  Rotarians all over the world raise money for Polio Plus.  This program WILL rid the world of polio.
At most meetings, we have a fun way to raise money by administering "fines".  "Fines" are the good things we do or want to brag about.  "Fine" money goes towards our annual Minden Scholarships.  We award $500 annually to one Minden male and female Senior.
