Program - 
Loren Schlomer introduced Lauren Wills who is a chiropractor and a member of the Sunrise Rotary.  Lauren is on the board of "Friends of Hennepin Canal" and spoke about the work the group is doing in raising funds to repair  Lock 33, on the feeder canal in Rock Falls along with two other locks on the Hennepin.   They are holding an Ultra Running event beginning Oct. 6.  Three races, 100mile, 50K and 50 miles. they have 450 runners enrolled in the race.  The group has raised $25,000 to date and hope to repair Lock 33 first working with the IDNR to accomplish this.   Thanks for sharing Loren & Lauren!
