The Rotary Club of White Bear Lake is excited to announce the support of North Star Bank -- this year's premier sponsor of the club's Taste of White Bear Lake, Sept. 11 at Pine Tree Apple Orchard. 
 
North Star Bank is a fourth-generation, independent, family-owned institution, with locations in White Bear Lake and Roseville. North Star's support of Rotary and The Taste fits with its mission: Its chief executive, Steve Ritt, is an active supporter in the community and serves as a board member for the Century College Foundation, Mahtomedi Area Educational Foundation, Lakeshore Players, and other key roles.
 
The Taste is the club's major event and fundraiser of the year -- a gathering for food and drink, showcasing local restaurateurs, specialty shops, breweries, distilleries, and others. Money raised from The Taste goes toward the club's service work locally and abroad -- doing good works is what the club is about. 
 
Tickets for The Taste are $40 a piece and come with related coupons to some of the vendors who will appear at the event, in addition to other great local businesses. Tickets are on sale now, visit TasteOfWhiteBearLake.com
