"Light Up Rotary"

Light Up Rotary


 
 

4-Way Test

Of the things we think, say and do...
 
1.  Is it the truth?
2.  Is it fair to all concerned?
3.  Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4.  Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
 

The Object of Rotary

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and in particular, to encourage and foster:
  • the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • high ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to service society;
  • The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
  • the advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

January - Our Halfway Marker

Welcome to 2015!   Happy New Year to you and your families, and may it be a very happy and healthy year for everyone.  
 
I can’t believe we are already at the midway point of the Rotary year!  That means, of course, that we should be at the midway point of achieving our goals for the year.  We discussed goals at my official club visits and I ask that you take a few minutes now to review those goals, both at the club level and at your personal level.   If you are on track – congratulations !   If not, it may be time to review your plan of action and put it in motion.        
 
A quick review of the goals we discussed:
 
  1. MEMBERSHIP -  The more members we have, the more people we can help and the more good we can do in the world.   Keep your ‘ASK’ in gear and grow your clubs.      If your club goal has already been achieved, consider adjusting (hopefully upward!) based on your planned member attraction efforts for the rest of the year. 
 
 
 

World Affairs Seminar

The World Affairs Seminar (WAS) seeks a part time Administrative Support person to assist with Registration, Marketing, Organizational Support and Light Office.  Duties include e-mail  and standard mail outreach to sponsors, student delegates and prospects; maintaining records and files, light accounting, telephone outreach & receptionist, and general office support.  The ideal candidate will be detail-oriented, well-organized with proficiency in Microsoft Office, Outlook and other social media, able to produce direct mail.  Quickbooks and PowerPoint skills a plus.  Hours are flexible (ideal for someone with school age children who wants to work 10 - 15 hours per week outside the home).  WAS offices are located near Highway 100 and Greenfield, West Allis, Wisconsin. Seminar is held at Carroll University, Waukesha the 4th week of June. ‚Äč

Grant Management Seminar (GMS) Training for 2015-2016
 
Does your Rotary Club want to make a difference in either your local community or in the Global community during 2015-2016? Could your Club use financial assistance of District Designated Funds (DDF) to make that difference?  Has your club given the qualifying $1,000.00 to the Rotary Foundation at least for the last 2 years?
 
Plan now to be at the Grant Management Seminar to learn about District and Global Grants.  Be informed on the application steps.  Make sure to have your club represented at the annual Grant Management Seminar (GMS) Training, if no one representing your Rotary Clubs attends – the club cannot apply for Grants.
 
Only 2 sessions will be offered for the 2015-16 Rotary year.
 
North -- January 15, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, Robbins Restaurant, 1810 Omro Rd, Oshkosh WI
South – February 19, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, Citizens Bank of Mukwonago, New Berlin branch, 5450 S Moorland Rd, New Berlin
 
In order to qualify for a District or Global Grants:
 
Rotary club MUST be in attendance at the Grant Management Seminar.
Clubs are invited to send 2 minimum – 3 maximum representatives.
Same agenda will be presented at either location. Travel to the session that is convenient for you.
 
Pre-registration is requested.  Please RSVP to Colleen at:  district6270@gmail.com   Please include your name, club name and location preference.

Congratulations to Doug and Sharon Ziegler

R. Douglas Ziegler is a member of the Rotary Club of West Bend. He and his wife, Sharon, truly exemplify the Rotary motto of "Service Above Self."  We thank them for their generosity and inspiration.  It is an honor for us to share their story below...
 
     When it comes to local philanthropy, Doug Ziegler has long stood tall in our community.  As co-chair of Cedar Community's Moments to Remember philanthropy campaign, Doug received the 2014 Todd Wehr Volunteer Fundraiser of the Year Award from the Association of Fund Raising Professionals (AFP) Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter.  Cedar Community, together with the Blood Center of Wisconsin and United Way of Washington County, nominated him for the award.
