Thank you to the Lake Minnetonka Excelsior Rotary Club
The Lake Minnetonka Excelsior Rotary Club (Meets every Wednesday morning at Maynard's at 7 AM) is all about giving back to the Community - in particular the 4th of July! Thank you to Dave Petroske and Mark Williams, for attending our June Chamber Member Meeting and presenting us with a HUGE $20,000 check to help support our Fireworks Fund! This money was a result of the 2017 Bingo & Burgers By the Bay event held on Saturday, May 6. Thank you to all who attended and helped raise this money! Can't wait for next year!
