Good News

This was put off for a week, to allow us to cover the rest of our activities. This quarters’s recipient is EYE HEART WORLD so please remember to bring a few dollars next week and share your good news with us.

Sad News

Jack Wahr, a prominent past member passed away last week. It was mentioned that visitation and a memorial service was being held today at Cotter Funeral Home. Members that knew Jack were encouraged to attend, if possible, and share a story with Jack’s family.

Classification Talks

Today we had two of our newer members, Laura Hieb and Russell Wood, presented their classification talks. Laura told of her growing up in northern WI and how a teacher recognized she needed to continue her education, that the world was her oyster. Laura told us the true gems of her life are three daughters.

Russell told of his childhood in Memphis, TN and how he so enjoyed the Zippin Pippin long before it came to Green Bay. He is the grandson of a Rotarian so he is upholding a family tradition in Rotary.

Both Laura and Russell find Green Bay to be a nice place to be and have found ways to include Rotary in their Monday schedules. Please take a moment at an upcoming meeting to say hello to each of these two and share some of your story with them. Fellowship of Rotary is a part of our Four Way Test and getting to know one another is a GREAT way to share fellowship.

Community Service Award

Following the classification talks, we presented our second Community Service Award. We presented this award to a team of officers, Craig Carlson and Mark Strojny, who, between them, share nearly 40 years of police duty. Partnered for the past 7 years, they have shared experiences within in the department, often having worked similar shifts and patrols. Today they patrol Sector C, downtown Green Bay from the Fox River to the East River, from Bay Beach to Mason Street. Their duties include foot patrols in the downtown area at businesses and apartments, bicycle patrols on the Fox River, at the Saturday Farmer’s Market and on the City Deck.

They also spend time in meetings with youth at the YMCA and participate in summer leagues in city parks. Being able to spend a few moments with them at lunch was both entertaining (they kid each other almost like brothers) and enlightening (they related some stories of their work). Police Chief Smith presented the two officers. In addition to Officers Carlson and Strojny, we had their Lt., Steve Mahoney and his Jim Runge. Also in attendance was Commander Kevin Warych.

(recipient), Police Chief Smith,
Congratulations to these fine officers.

Hopefully you will be able to participate at one of the one of the Rotary events or Meetings scheduled between now and March 22. If you are able to make it on March 13, please look to meet a Rotarian from either of the two clubs mentioned. We plan on coordinating club activities with these clubs in the coming year, so lets start that now.

Thanks for being a Rotarian
Steve Mastalir, President Elect
