On April 25, 2021, the Northlake-Mandeville Rotary Club hosted its 23rd annual Sunday with Scholars event.  The Rotary Scholarship is a $12,000 award, paid to the college of the recipient’s choice in $1,500 semester installments for a maximum of 8 semesters.  Rotary Scholars have exemplified outstanding academic achievement and participated in serving our community through various volunteer, school, and civic organizations.  Our scholarship goal is to find worthy students where our scholarship will make a difference in helping them realize their potential as a college student and a member of our community.  Over the past 22 years we have helped 44 students in achieving their goal of a college education.  
 
This year's event, planned by the club's Scholarship Committee, was held at Beau Chene Country Club.  Scholarship sponsors, Rotary members, students, their family members, and local elected officials enjoyed a live DJ, a silent auction, a mask contest, and a program event emceed by Rotary member Reid Falconer.  The new scholarship recipients for 2021 are Trevor Fortier, Celeste Guidry, and Lauren Lacoste.  Typically two scholarships are awarded each year but this year a third was available because of the endowed Wilson and Jean Sexton Scholarship.  The current recipient of that endowed scholarship, Ruston Keller, is graduating Spring Hill College and headed to medical school in St. Louis, thus a new recipient, Trevor Fortier, was announced.  The club also presented its 2020 scholarship winners, Isabella Kerth and Emma Santiago, and enjoyed hearing updates from all of our current and past Scholars.  A good time was had by all!
 
 
The work of the Northlake-Mandeville Rotary Club and District #6840 was featured in the February 2021 issue of the RAGMHI newsletter.  RAGMHI stands for Rotary Action Group on Mental Health Initiatives.  Other countries whose Rotary mental health projects were featured include India, New Zealand, Lithuania, England, and more.  The story focused on the club's recent tour of the new Crisis Receiving Center on the grounds of Safe Haven.
 
 
 
One of our club's important missions is our mental health initiative to address the growing mental health needs in our area.  Our club is committed to developing the recreation and meditation areas at Safe Haven, a multi-agency collaborative effort currently being developed on the grounds of the former Southeast Louisiana State Hospital.  The club's efforts are dedicated to Ken Thompson, a very special Rotarian who died suddenly last year while serving as Rotary District #6840 Governor.  Our club refurbished this lovely pavilion.  Pictured here are our club members celebrating the "crowning" of the pavilion with our Rotary Wheel.   Not long after we had our Annual Crawfish Boil here!
Rotary isn't just a local organization.  It includes 1.2 million members in 35,000 club spread through the world!  With a mission is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian service and to advance goodwill and peace locally and also around the world. It is a non-political and non-religious organization open to all people regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, or political preference.
 
Rotarians love to have fun!!  These are some of our members enjoying a "Pop-Up" happy hour at the Beach House in Mandeville.  A good time was had by all!
 
One of the most gratifying things our club does is host the Northlake-Mandeville Rotary Scholarship Program.  In its 20th year, the program awards two $12,000 scholarships to local graduating seniors based on a combination of their merit, need, and community service.  Our program doesn't just involve giving a check.  Our "Rotary Scholars" as they are endearingly referred to, come back every semester to give us an update as to how they are doing, their academic and social achievements, and more.  Our Scholars have expressed repeatedly how much being part of our Rotary Family means to them.

We are so proud of our Scholars
 
 
 
In May, 2019, members of our club attended a multi-district meeting that took place on a cruise.  Attendees included Rotarians from Mississippi, Louisiana,and Texas!  In addition to some fabulous speakers, members also participated in a service project.  We helped to renovate a drug treatment center in Cozumel for at-risk youth. Great way to put service into practice, especially at a Rotary event!
On Thursday, June 27, 2019, the Northlake-Mandeville Rotary Club had its Installation Luncheon and Reid Falconer served as the Master of Ceremonies.  Outgoing President, Steve Saux, gave his President's Farewell and presented a variety of awards to members as shown in the pictures below.  Assistant Governor Vicky Magas swore in the new Board of Directors, its officers, and incoming President Leanne Truehart.  Incoming District #6840 Governor Bob Haeuser and his wife Jamie Haeuser also addressed the club to congratulate its new officers, highlight the club's achievements, and present Rotary's new emphasis of making Rotary events more family-inclusive.  The lunch was prepared by Chef Hosie at the Beau Chene Country Club and a good time was had by all.  We look forward to a terrific year ahead and invite you, visitors to this website, to join us at a meeting and come experience the wonder, fellowship, and fun of Rotary!
 
     
 
 
   
 
 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  
 
 
The Northlake-Mandeville Rotary Club was the leading fundraising team at the NAMI 5k Walk on May 19, 2018 on the Mandeville Lakefront. 

The Northlake-Mandeville Rotary Club will award $12,000 College Scholarships to two local high school seniors.  We have awarded over $375,000 to 37 local students.  Rotary selects two graduating seniors from local high schools for whom the scholarship will have the "greatest impact."   Rotary scholarship students must display: academic ability, community service and a need for financial assistance.   Please help these local students and invest in our Northshore community's future.  Eight of our former students or current students are medical doctors or nurses or studying to be doctors or nurses. 

Please help Rotary raise the needed funds and please attend our Annual "Sunday with Scholars" banquet on April 22, 2018, 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Beau Chene Country Club in Mandeville.  Join us for a gourmet buffet dinner, open bar, soft piano music, a silent auction and fun for all.   Our charity is 100 % volunteers, with no paid employees.
