Welcome To Rotary Club Of Green Bay
Hello and Welcome to the Rotary Club of Green Bay!
The Rotary Club of Green Bay is 1 of 32,000 clubs around the world our focus is on making a difference locally and internationally. Rotary International is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million men and women dedicated to the ideal of “Service Above Self” working to promote peace and humanitarian efforts locally and across the globe.
Our club meets most Mondays at noon at the Hyatt on Main. We enjoy lunch and camaraderie with other business professionals in the Green Bay area, as well conduct a brief business meeting and weekly informative speakers on a variety of topics.
We always welcome new members, and suggest the best way to learn about Rotary is to attend one of our club meetings! Rotary clubs are open to people of all ages, cultures, and ethnicities. We are not affiliated with any political or religious organizations.
Service is something our club is no stranger to, our members have travelled to countries around the world to lend a hand. We have given polio immunizations in India, built cisterns to provide clean water for villages in Africa, provided micro funding for a bakery in Bolivia and partnered with other Rotarians around the world to improve the lives of others.
Our Green Bay Rotary Club is also proud of our service to our community. Over the years we have partnered with various Green Bay agencies to foster proactive change for youth, education and health initiatives in Brown County. Our local Rotary Foundation of Green Bay provides close to $30,000 annually in small grants to local organizations and provides college scholarships to local high school students. Our 2005 “healthy teeth, healthy kids” initiative developed into the Oral Health Partnership (OHP) which provides no-cost dental care to needy children through out Brown County.
If you are a Rotarian looking for an opportunity to join our meeting, we welcome you to our club, where you might learn more about Northeast Wisconsin and the efforts our club puts forth to make our community stronger. Our club regularly supports both incoming and outbound students through the Rotary Youth Exchange and we strive to teach youngsters by recruiting teens to our Rotary Youth Leadership Award Conference, which teaches leadership skills to kids in high school.
“Be the Inspiration” is the 2018-2019 theme Rotary International President Barry Rassin has chosen. He notes, “ the Rotarians who have the biggest impact through their service aren’t always the women and men with the greatest resources, the most experience, or the largest networks. They’re the ones who are inspired. Whether it was something they did, something they saw, or someone they met, they’ve all had experiences that lit them on fire – and inspired them to serve. “
I am honored to serve you as the president of the Rotary Club of Green Bay for 2018-2019. But I cannot lead alone, and I look to all of you to inspire our club to achieve the best in Rotary Service throughout this coming year.
