On June 6, 1944, The Patriot had a message for Adolf Hitler the leader of the Nazi party in Germany.  The headline to the left of the masthead said, "GOOD EVENING, Herr Hitler: The Yanks are coming!”

On that day during World War II, soldiers swarmed the beaches of Normandy, France, to begin the liberation of German-occupied western Europe.  On D-Day, more than 160,000 Allied troops landed on 50 miles of beaches in Normandy, France, to fight Nazi Germany.  Courtesy of

From the Rotary District 5950: The COVID-19 epidemic is pushing the American healthcare system to the breaking point—and leaving front-line medical providers overwhelmed. Many of the most basic care-taking tasks can be performed by volunteer assistants, so professionals can focus on tending to the most acute needs. 
Trader Joe's in Minnetonka and Plymouth Rotary is delivering smiles!  On Saturday Rotary members, Mary Christensen and Carol Parrish delivered Trader Joe's donated flowers to Brookdale Senior Living and Cherrywood Pointe in Plymouth.  People in action....Rotary in action.
Finding PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) has been difficult. "It seems things are hard to come by with prices skyrocketing!", stated Linda O'Brien with Mission Nursing in Plymouth.  Due to COVID 19, Lightning Kayaks in Minneapolis is helping healthcare workers.  They have switched from making kayaks and paddles to solely making Face Shields for the medical community.  Recently Plymouth Rotary delivered face shields to Mission Nursing, SummerWood Retirement and Brookdale Senior Living in Plymouth at no cost.  Courtesy of Rotary partner, Quazar Capital in Plymouth.  Hats (shields) off to Lightning Kayaks and Quazar Capital!
Association of Minnesota Chinese Physicians (AMCP) has collected and delivered out more than 10-thousand face-masks and 400 handmade masks from Chinese communities in the Twin Cities.  Plymouth Rotary Member, Henry Wang along with co-workers, have collaborated on the PPE sourcing, logistics and delivery and donation, plus, raised $6,900.  Thank you AMCP!
Nguyet Bui of Imagine Stitch in Medina has altered her wedding and formal attire business to protective masks!  Pictured with Rotary Member, Mary Christensen, the 130 masks will be delivered by Rotary members to four area nursing homes to help protect staff and residents.  Thank you to Imagine Stitch for being part of the Rotary Community!
"You can't believe how much we appreciate this!", says Mission Nursing Home Administrator, Rich Feeney, as Plymouth MN Rotary delivered an iPad for residents to use.  Per CDC guidelines and Minnesota's Stay-at-home order, visitors are not allowed to visit friends and family at nursing and retirement homes due to COVID-19.  Plymouth MN Rotary provided another iPad to residents at Cherrywood Pointe in Plymouth.
