Welcome to the June Newsletter for the Rotary Club of Green Bay

Well, I will be honest, I have no idea where the last 12 months have gone.  This is the final newsletter of my year as the President of the Club... but before I continue down that path there are a few other things I wish to touch on first.

Congratulations to Steve Harty (YMCA) and Mary Denissen on being appointed and reappointed to the Green Bay Rotary Foundation Board of Directors.  You will be great additions to the board.

The old adage that goes "time flies when you having fun" must be true as I honestly have had nothing but a great time as the Club President and wow has it gone by fast!!  I have been supported by nothing short of the complete club.  There was not one person, one time that said they were unable or unwilling to assist in any part of it. It is that fact that makes us such a great club.

Michael Hagerty 1947-2015

I am sorry to have to share some tragic news.

It is with deepest sadness that I must inform you of the passing of one of our Club members Mr. Mike Hagerty.

Mike, 67, passed away unexpectedly on Friday May 1st as the result of an automobile accident.  Arrangements are incomplete and further announcements will be announced by Proko-Wall Funeral Home.  Mike began his Rotary service on December 1st, 1995 and touched the lives of many during his time with us.  Mike was instrumental in the formation and operation of the Men's Closet and his talents will be missed by all who knew him.

Yours in Service,

Ian Griffiths

Welcome to the May Newsletter for the Rotary Club of Green Bay

I hope this May newsletter finds you well.  I would be remiss if I began this newsletter without reference to the April 25th devastating earthquakes in Nepal. As we mourn the thousands of lives lost in this tragedy let us take comfort in the knowledge that Rotary immediately took action, with many other international agencies, in providing immediate relief to survivors and mobilizing their expertise to support the long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts.  I have shared some additional details on the efforts in the International and Humanitarian section further in this newsletter.

May is a busy month for our club; FEA, District Conference, Rotary Youth Leadership debates, Local Foundation Elections to name but a few. Here are some more of the details....

Welcome to the April Newsletter for the Rotary Club of Green Bay

I hope this April email finds you all well.  I'm not sure about each of you but I am delighted to see the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring.  I was delighted to a crocus flower in my yard earlier this week.

We have a full newsletter this month and a busy couple of months ahead. We have had the board elections, we have the Foundation elections coming up.  Many of us enjoyed an evening tour of Titletown Brewing Company last week.  More details and  picture below.   We have the Free Enterprise Awards (May 4th), Rotary Student Leadership Awards (May 11th) the TRICON District Conference (May 15th - 17th).

I have included below a little more information on the Elections, some updates on District 6220 information, District Conference, including some postings for leadership/volunteer positions.  I would encourage each of you to look at these opportunities for additional service opportunities.
