PARTNERING WITH HAWS FOR 2022/23

 
The Waukesha Rotary Club applied for and received a $3,000 grant from Rotary District 6270.  The grant funds will be used  to purchase shrubs, pollinator plants and tools to enhance the pollinator gardens in the Schallock Center.  In addition, our members will assist in planting the shrubs on the property and removing weeds and invasive species like buckthorn from the wooded areas.  Work is scheduled to begin in late September and early October.

COMMUNITY BLOOD DRIVE - CANCELLED
 
Be a Beacon of Hope
 

 

OUR EVENT ON OCTOBER 10TH IS CANCELLED DUE TO A STAFFING SHORTAGE AT VERSITI.  

Every day, Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin needs more than 640 blood products to meet hospital demand.   We encourage everyone who can donate to visit their website at https://www.versiti.org/events to find an event.

DISCOVERY TRAIL AT RETZER PROJECT UPDATE             ​​​​​​
The paving of the old path was critical to create the foundation and access to the new interactive ‘Exploration Stations” being installed in the second phase.  Phase 2 construction will start later this summer to install an entrance archway and signage, a stone outcrop seating wall, and the insect and wood climbing exploration stations.
 
A fundraising campaign was launched on July 12, 2021 to raise funds for additional educational elements in future years.
For more information about the project, visit www.waukeshacounty.gov/discoverytrail.
