We are asking our club members to donate to the Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign at this meeting. Katie Quasius’s company, C.H. Robinson, has offered to match the donations from our club members. If your business would like to add to that match (so we could get $3 or $4 for every dollar) that would be Great!! We could really amplify the impact of our member donations!

The Rotary Club of Green Bay First Community Service Award
Our December 10th meeting was full of good news. We announced that Howard Hauser, our current membership chair, and Business Consultant at Growth Mgt. Partners, LLc., will serve as our President Elect beginning in July 2019 and will serve as The Rotary Club of Green Bay’s 104th president beginning July 2020. Congratulations to Howard and congratulations to our club for having a successful and strong succession plan!!
Ian Griffiths gave the annual report from the Rotary Foundation of Green Bay, Inc. Our local Rotary Foundation provides approximately $30,000/year to local community organizations in the form of small grants averaging from $500 - $2500. Take a look at our club’s web site to see the application form. Grants are reviewed four times per year. Ian concluded his report by noting that over the course of the last 12 years, the Rotary Foundation of Green Bay has given over $927,000 in the form of grants, FEA recipient awards, Student Scholarships and FEA charitable partner awards. That’s a significant amount of $$. As we approach our $ I million mark we should make sure we get the press that our Foundation deserves as we continue to serve our Green Bay and Brown County Community!
Finally, we awarded our first Rotary Club of Green Bay Service Award to Officer A.J. Walker, a member of the Green Bay Police Department. A.J .was recommended to us by his department for his leadership in the department and, notably his service to the youth in the Green Bay School System. Below he is shown with his wife Megan, and Chief Smith.
That’s all for now, Merry Christmas Fellow Rotarians. Your next newsletter will be on January 6th. I look forward to another Great Year working with you to better our community and our world!!
Yours In Service,
Julia Wallace, 2018-19 Rotary Club of Green Bay President
