Paul Mooty joined us Tuesday, November 23rd to talk about the history and the business aspects of The Faribault Woolen Mill. Paul is based out of Faribault, Minnesota, and works at Faribault Woolen Mill Co. as Vice Chairman & Partner. The mill is a manufacturing company in Faribault that produces and sells wool blankets and other woolen products. The company primarily serves various enterprise sectors. It offers its products through its store in Faribault and nationwide through retailers. The Faribault Woolen Mill Company's building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012 for having state-level significance in the theme of industry. It was nominated for being one of the largest and oldest fully integrated woolen mills in Minnesota. The plant closed in 2009 but reopened in September 2011 under new private ownership. At the time it closed in 2009, Faribault Woolen Mills produced more than half of the new wool blankets made in the United States and was one of the few remaining woolen mills in the country. The mill is currently working around the clock to ship out blankets and produce clothing for everyone. If you are looking for a few holiday gifts look online for some wonderful handmade products fro The Faribault Woolen Mill.

Vocational - Pastor Rod

Pastor Rod joined us on Tuesday, he has served 47 years as a pastor across most Christian denominations. Rod and his wife have 3 kids and have been fortunate enough to have 5 grandkids. Rod had been the head pastor at St. Andrews church for thirty-four years and helped form the church camp Spirit in the Pines. In the words of Pastor Rod, Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays because it is the time we all get to be thankful for one another. Rod is now a Chaplin in Eden Prarie and gets to help those who are sick and unhealthy live their remaining time on earth with joy. Many times Rod has heard the phrase "I am so thankful for you", this phrase means a lot to Rod because the people he is helping want to let him know how thankful they are for his healing. Over the holiday season, us Rotarians can work together to be thankful for all we have been given.
