Golf Outing Update
The golf outing was a success.  We had about 90 golfers participate.  Thank you to all the sponsors, golfers, and volunteers that made the event possible and successful.  The final fundraising numbers will be announced soon.
Another Successful Highway Clean-Up Project
Seven members of the Sun Prairie Rotary Club took to the ditches along Hwy 151 on Saturday, August 6th, collecting 24 bags of trash.   Chad Wiedmeyer, Jim Bell, Jim Mastrangelo, John Landsverk, Tyler Riekena and Andy Bissonnette all showed up and got after the unsightly trash littering our stretch of highway between Reiner Rd and Main Street.
"The Highway Dept had just mowed this stretch within the past couple of weeks", said Bissonnette, "so the walking was pretty easy compared to the waist-high growth that we encountered in June. The shorter grass also allowed us to see the trash more easily as well."  The weather cooperated again, with lower temps and lower humidity than in the previous few days. 
For the second straight clean-up, the group found a discarded wallet, including a drivers license and other identification, but of course no cash or credit cards. "Apparently this is  a popular place to throw stolen wallets", commented Bissonnette. "The owners must be fascinated to discover where their wallets ended up, as we returned each wallet."
The club is hoping to conduct one final clean-up in the fall, probably in October after the first freeze.
Members of the Sun Prairie Rotary Club take a short break while cleaning the ditch along the southbound lane of Hwy 151. From left are John Landsverk, Jim Mastrangelo, Chad Wiedmeyer and Jim Bell. Not pictured were Tyler Riekena, Steve Riggles and Andy Bissonnette. 
Matching Grant - Benches
The Rotary Club of Sun Prairie received a Rotary District 6250 matching grant for up to $1,500 to help support the purchase of 2 benches that will be near the library.  We need to raise $1,500 in donations to receive the full $1,500 in matching grant funds.  If you have pledged or want to donate to the benches, payment is required now.  Please make the check out to Sun Prairie Rotary Foundation and checks can go to Debbie Fox-Schroeder.
Everyone is invited to attend...
Help unite District 6250 on November 5… Join us for iFeed 2016!
iFeed?  What is iFeed?  It’s a one-day effort to alleviate hunger in our world AND in our own communities. iFeed was the collaborative effort of five La Crosse area Interact clubs and the Rotary Clubs that support them. As the students started to brainstorm, the project grew and grew and soon exploded into an all-community effort. The results were nothing short of amazing. More than 275 volunteers packed over 54,000 meals that were sent to Nicaragua. For six hours, dozens of volunteers worked a drive up/drop off site at Logan High School. This resulted in over 13 tons of food being collected, sorted and donated to the Hunger Task Force. This group of Interact Clubs even won the International Interact Video Competition highlighting iFeed!
Now, the same five Interact clubs, joined by two newly chartered clubs are gearing up to do it all over again, and we are looking for your club to be involved as well. We want to make iFeed a day to help alleviate hunger throughout District 6250 and beyond. If you haven’t seen the award-winning Interact video yet, CLICK HERE. Read the extended article and plan to get your Rotary Club and your Interact Club involved!
