Rotary Picnic
Hello and Happy Friday,
I wanted to touch base with everyone about the upcoming Rotary picnic. This will be held at Orfan Park on Tuesday, June 28 starting at 5:30. For those "friends of Rotary" and new memebers, June 30 marks the end of the Rotary year and so we traditionally have had a picnic for all members and friends and hope you can bring your family too! At this picinc, I will be passing  the gavel onto the incoming President Mark Olsen!
We will be having subs from Silver Mine Subs again, thanks to Tyler Riekena for helping me with this. If you can bring a side dish to pass, that would be great. Drinks and dessert will be provided!
If you can let me know if you plan to attend and how many from your family will be joining you. 
Thanks for allowing me to serve as President this year, I have a lot of fun and am very excited for the next year's leadership with Mark. We are in good hands!
Have a great weekend,

I'm organizing a car pool for our District 6250 Rotary Youth Exchange Students in July.  They will be attending The Central States Rotary Youth Exchange conference in Grand Rapids, MI.  The students are sharing a bus with District 6270 (Milwaukee Area).  We have 18 students in the car pool.
I'm looking for 2 volunteer drivers to help drive students from Madison (east side) to Brookfield to catch the bus.  I also need 2 drivers for the return on Sunday (pick up in Brookfield and drop off in Madison).  The drivers should be able to fit at least 4 students (with luggage) in their vehicle.  Gas money will be given to each driver.
Below is the schedule for the pick ups on Thursday, July 7th and the drop off's on Sunday July 10th.

2016-17 Rotary Theme

Rotary’s founder, Paul Harris, believed that serving humanity is “the most worthwhile thing a person can do,” RI President-elect John F. Germ said, and that being a part of Rotary is a “great opportunity” to make that happen.

Germ unveiled the 2016-17 presidential theme, Rotary Serving Humanity, to incoming district governors on 18 January at the International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA.

“I believe everyone recognizes the opportunity to serve Rotary for what it truly is: not a small opportunity, but a great one; an opportunity of a lifetime to change the world for the better, forever through Rotary’s service to humanity,” said Germ.

Rotary members around the globe are serving humanity by providing clean water to underdeveloped communities, promoting peace in conflict areas, and strengthening communities through basic education and literacy. But none more important than our work to eradicate polio worldwide, he said.

After a historic year in which transmission of the wild poliovirus was stopped in Nigeria and all of Africa, Germ said we are closer than ever to ending polio.

“We are at a crossroads in Rotary,” he added. “We are looking ahead at a year that may one day be known as the greatest year in Rotary’s history: the year that sees the world’s last case of polio.”

Last year’s milestones leave just two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan, where the virus still circulates. Polio would be only the second human disease ever to be eradicated.

When that moment arrives, it’s “tremendously important” that Rotary is ready for it, said Germ. “We need to be sure that we are recognized for that success, and leverage that success into more partnerships, greater growth, and even more ambitious service in the decades to come.”

Germ, a member of the Rotary Club of Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA, encouraged attendees to return to their clubs and communities and spread the word about Rotary’s role in the fight for a polio-free world.

“People who want to do good will see that Rotary is a place where they can change the world. Every Rotary club needs to be ready to give them that opportunity,” Germ said.

Enhancing Rotary’s image isn’t the only way to boost membership. “We need clubs that are flexible, so our service will be more attractive to younger members, recent retirees, and working people.”

He added: “We need more willing hands, more caring hearts, and more bright minds to move our work forward.”
