Reading Rotarians

Kids enjoy their apples Reading Rotarians

Last Tuesday, April 23, the Rotary of Edina hosted their annual reading of “Andy & Elmer’s Apple Dumpling Adventure” with our third grade students at Cornelia Elementary.

The story focuses on the motto “Service Above Self” and the four pillars of Rotary International: (1) Is it the truth? (2) Is it fair to all concerned? (3) Will it build goodwill and better friendships? (4) Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Each year, pairs of Edina Rotarians visit the classrooms to read the book to third grade students, share fresh apples, and have a discussion about the book’s message.

We value the efforts of the Rotary to provide this opportunity for students and look forward to seeing them again next year! Fresh apples donated by the amazing Jerry’s Foods – thank you!
