Good News

Last week, Tom Guyette named Exceptional Equestrians as our recipient of the third quarter Good News. Members talked about the Packers, anniversaries and art presentations. Please continue to share your good news as club members relate that they enjoy hearing about other members news. And, the cause is always good.

Club Business

Last call for joining the Rotary Friendship Exchange team. The district team charged with putting this together has made the request for members to sign up. Now they are on to planning the viist.

The District Conference is scheduled for May 1-2 of this year. If you have not been to a District Conference, or if it has been a while, these get-togethers serve a number of purposes. First, you get a chance to lean more about Rotary and what we do. Great ideas abound on how’s and who’s. Equally important is getting to know other Rotarians from our District and the District immediately to our south (this is a joint conference). This conference has some inspiring speakers and a fun location. We will be in Oskosh, on the waterfront and at the EAA grounds. Sign up is available on the district website ( Let’s support our club member, District Governor Steve Handrick, to celebrate the end of his year.

Rotary Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteer opportunities continue to be available. Attached please find the current list. Please note that the list now includes opportunities at the YMCA, the Green Bay Public School District and the Salvation Army. For those of you with school age family members, why not consider getting them involved.

President Steve met with Michael Schwartz to discuss his taking on the tracking of volunteering by club members. In the near future we will have a more coordinated system of tracking volunteer participation.

As Rotarians, we are all volunteering. We are looking to track the efforts of members volunteerism to be able to report it up to Rotary International. R/I will use this information, combined with other clubs doing the same, to create reports to show what Rotary can do with its member volunteers. Imagine 1,2 million members volunteering 6 hours of time per year (30 minutes per month). That equates to 300,000 24 hour days of volunteering. More details will be forthcoming on this initiative. We will encourage volunteers to join with a fellow Rotarian and family members, or friends, to share the load.

Our Presentation

Today’s presentation led by Sarah Sugden, Brant Bergeron and Kathryn Kroll. The topic was what do we want our club to look like. The meeting started with a discussion of what the committee can do, and what the committee is asking members to add. Each table had a discussion of what we felt characteristics of the club should be. Ideas were put forward at each table, then discussed among the club. The PR Committee will take this information back to their full team and work with what was written down. Members not present at today’s meeting will be polled electronically for input.

Several ideas that seemed pervasive included building diversity within in the club to more accurately reflect the community. Another topic was the need to make the club more visible in what we do. While Rotary International has put forward a means to show who Rotary is, it was felt we need to better job locally. See the request for volunteer information requested above. A third characteristic is to be family friendly. We hope to attract additional “younger” members to the club. Doing so would require family friendly events (meetngs, 5th Monday’s, etc) to allow members to bring their families.

The committee will take this information and report back in a few weeks. The evolution of the club will continue this year and next.

The 50 / 50 raffle was won by Howard Hauser. Congratulations Howard. The Queen of Hearts chance went to Jim DeCoster. He drew a black deuce. I guess you could say “Two down, more to go.”
