Unfortunately, for reasons we all know too well, it is going to be impossible to have our annual event in May of 2020. It is in our nature, as Rotarians, to keep an optimistic outlook when confronted by challenges. It is in this spirit, that we have reserved the Sherburne County Fair Grounds to host the 2020 Taste of Elk River on September 24 from 4 to 8 pm.

No photo description available.
The Taste of Elk River is a community-based event hosted by the Elk River Rotary to bring local dollars to local nonprofits through an evening full of tasting a variety of wines, beer, and delicious local cuisine! Our Taste would not be a success without the support from area business sponsorships.

Sponsorships support the Elk River Rotary's mission to inspire leaders with passion, serve humanity, strengthen youth for tomorrow's leadership, and enhance lives in the world.

This coming year, it is our goal to raise $40,000 to make an even bigger difference in the lives of Elk River citizens and families through healthy nonprofits; by helping them continue the important services they each provide through dollars raised by the Taste event. The Signature Donation Recipient for 2020 is GREAT RIVER FAMILY PROMISE, building partnerships throughout our communities to support children and families experiencing homelessness to achieve sustainable independence.

Rotary Club of Elk River

Thank you for your generous donation of $1,296.00 to The Dictionary Project which we received on January 6, 2020

Your support makes it possible for students in Sherburn County to receive a dictionary for their own personal use that they will be able to use for a lifetime. For some children, this may be the very first book that they have owned. You are truly making a difference in their lives by giving them such an important tool.

Our goal is to reach every third grade student in the United States and you are helping us make this possible. So far this school year, we have reached an estimated 1,281,480 students. Cumulatively, we have been able to reach an estimated 32,975,281 students. Of these, 3,720 were sponsored by the Rotary Club of Elk River 

With Gratitude,

The Dictionary Project

Thomas Jay McNair

      March 3, 1955 - June 26, 2012

IN LOVING MEMORY OF OUR FELLOW ROTARIAN

Tom McNairThomas McNair, VP and Director of Lending. Thomas graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1977 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. He attended the Minnesota School of Banking at St. Olaf in 1981. The Minnesota Bankers Association Commercial Lending Graduate School at the University of Oklahoma in 1987 and Graduate Schoool of Banking at the University of Wisconsin in Madison in 1995. Tom worked at the First Bank Minneapolis from 1977 to 1978 in the sales finance department. From 1978 to 2004, he worked with First National Bank of Elk River in various roles, including Executive Vice President/Manager of Lending. From 2004 to the present, Tom has been the Director of Lending for The Bank of Elk River. Tom has served on various civic boards including ELK RIVER ROTARY, Elk River EDA Finance Committee, Elk River Area Arts Alliance and The Elk River United Way. 

Tom loved everything to do with nature and the outdoors. His appreciation for all plants, animals, lakes and rivers was immense. He loved to work and play hard. He loved tree cutting, working around the house, golf, cribbage, Tuesday night pool, wood carving, playing the harmonica and piano. He was a great storyteller. He loved games and always played to win. 

He was by far the most proud and honored to be the father of his sons - Adam and Andrew. His happiest times were spent together as a family. 

Tom and Mary started dating in 10th grade and married in 1975. They loved to do many things together, including biking, golfing, canoeing, going out to eat, cross country skiing, going to Ottertail, vacationing, sharing anniversaries with Jim and Kathy, tubbing with Bev and Dale, throwing Labor Day island parties, early morning coffee by the river, campfires, and spending time with family and friends. He was the best son, husband, father, brother, uncle and friend.  We love Tom with all our hearts and will miss him with all of our being!
