The one-hour training sessions are open to teenagers and adults who are interested in learning to help save lives. Participants can learn hands-only CPR, which teaches chest compressions without mouth-to-mouth breaths, as well as the use of an AED.
 
An AED, or Automated External Defibrillator, is a portable electronic device that automatically detects disturbances in the rhythm of a heartbeat and is able to treat them through defibrillation, the application of electrical therapy, allowing the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm.

Look us up on Facebook at the Rotary Club  of Plymouth, MN
In response to the request of Rotary International President Ian Riseley, we have received a grant approval to plant 40 trees in the City of Plymouth, representing our membership as a club. Thanks to the amazing supporters of our September fundraiser and the City of Plymouth who supported our grant process to make this happen!!!!!
 
It is the Lake Camelot neighborhood (Old Begin Oaks Golf Course) which the City identified. It will be a Rotary Tree Walk with signage reflecting the tree types and education about the trees so those enjoying the nature walk can learn about the environment and Rotary during this walk.
 
We will be instructed on the proper way to plant the trees, so we get to enjoy and learn from the fun part of the project. This will be a great event to invite family too, and any local environmental group interested in being a part of this, including younger millennials who may have interest in joining our great club.
This past Saturday was another amazing event between the City of Plymouth Police department and the Rotary Club of Plymouth as we were able to come together and provide some wonderful children an opportunity to go Christmas shopping with some officers of our community! Thanks for all those who helped make this a special event!
As our signature project continues to grow in those we train on recognizing and performing CPR, we continue to get closer to our goal of 7,000 and reaching the milestone of 5,000 in our Rotary Fiscal Year of July 1st, 2017-June 30th, 2018. We are currently at 4,229 people trained to date. This subject continues to grow in our community around us as evidenced in this news link http://www.startribune.com/university-of-minnesota-to-design-super-ambulances-to-hasten-treatment-of-cardiac-arrest/453074973/
 
We also received a donated AED unit from Allina Hospitals and Clinics which will be available during our Rotary meetings and for check out by those Rotarians who have events in which they would like to have an AED unit present. Thanks Allina!!!!
Big thanks to Jeff Wosje for organizing yet another successful golf outing - this time we were at Eagle Lake on Bass Lake Road.  Perfect weather and even better fellowship...See everyone out there next time!
