Bemidji Rotary Club supports BSU Scholarship
Rotary President Karl Bleser presents a $1,000 check to Lisa Hofstad, Director of Annual Giving for the Bemidji State University Alumni Association Foundation. The money will be used for The Bemidji Rotary Club scholarship, an annual $1,000 scholarship awarded since 1999. The BSU Foundation reviews scholarship applications from any newly admitted BSU students or continuing BSU students who are either active in Rotaract or are the child/grandchild of an active Rotarian.
Rotarians love to live out the motto of Rotary - SERVICE ABOVE SELF. Whether for Rotary, another organization, cause, or event, you can find us out, sharing our time, talent, and treasures.
Thank you to the Ruth Edevold Endowment for Excellence for a donation to the Paul Bunyan Inclusive Playground project. Rotarian Jeane Edevold Larson and her father, Marvin, presented the donation to Rotarians Martin Graefe and Jordan Hickman, both representing the Bemidji Rotary Foundation.
