WE'RE SUSPENDING MEETING AGAIN! Our Club's Board of Directors has decided that given the Coronavirus pandemic and the current spike in numbers, we will suspend in person meetings until January 31, 2021. The Board will revisit the issue at its January meeting. We had been meeting at the SOUTH DAKOTA MILITARY  HERITAGE ALLIANCE at 1600 W. Russell St. (across from the Sheraton). Hopefully this will only be a temporary measure for safety considerations over the holiday season. In the meantime, BE SAFE AND BE WELL!
We're excited to report that Governor Kristi Noem has proclaimed Nov. 7, 2020 to be Cosmopolitan International Day in South Dakota. This proclamation was pursued in response to CI President Art Brassard's request for all Cosmopolitan clubs to raise local awareness about CI and its focus on Diabetes. See the proclamation itself at the following link:

For easy understanding and branding purposes, the "Smooch a Pooch" program is now known as the "Paws Saving Lives" program.  This program is being led by CI's Rick Swansboro from Rockford, Illinois.

Ludene McLeod and Lou Rensch visited Camp Gilbert at NeSoDak Camp on Enemy Swim Lake for vendor day. This is the wrap up day for the camp and a few vendors display their offerings and Ludene and I talked to any interested parents about what the Cosmopolitan Club is about and we handed out a few trinkets such as wrist bands (diabetes alert bracelets), pencils and literature about the club. We received several heartfelt thank yous to our club by parents who had received scholarships for their children.
I also visited with the vendors and noted that we have a golf fundraiser coming up in September and gave them one of the sponsor brochures for 2018. Hopefully Jerry Priebe or Lanny Auringer will receive an inquiry or two from this as the interest seemed strong. Monica Wilde stopped by our table and noted her husband is likely going to give us 4 Timberwolve tickets for the raffle!
Vendors attending were:
Novo Nordisk     Delta Dental       Medtronic           Dexcom               Omnipod             Lilly
We visited with Deidra Bonte (Medtronic) who has volunteered at our golf outings in the past and Stacy Breidenbach (Dexcom) who sounded likely to volunteer to help this year.
