ONGOING CLUB ACTIVITIES

With January being National Mentoring Month the Club decided to take on a new ongoing commitment. We have partnered with the West Fargo High School where we have ten of our members meeting with their mentees at the high school once every three weeks. This week they will have a short gathering for a presentation on Vision and Goal setting. Then spent the rest of the hour meeting with their mentee to review what they have set at as a SMART goal- one school related one non-school related.

FUNDED DONATION REQUESTS

The club recently funded several donation requests: the Chamber of Commerce, Hope Inc. and the Red River Children’s Advocacy.

The club meets every Tuesday at noon at the WF Speedway Event Center. More information is available on their website at: www.wfexchangeclub.com
