Waukesha Rotary Club Provides Kits
for Hebron Housing Services
 
                                   
 
Members of the Waukesha Rotary Club prepared cleaning and food kits for Hebron Housing Services. The Waukesha Rotary Club was awarded a Rotary International District grant. Additional donations were made by the Rotaract Club of Carroll University, Kwik Trip and Target. Funding was used to purchase non-perishable lunch items and cleaning materials. Rotary members assembled “grab and go lunch kits” for homeless clients and “clean-day kits” for Hebron Housing Services’ properties. Clean Day kits are used to keep shelter properties clean and sanitized.
 
The current Covid-19 epidemic has resulted in increased requests for client services and additional work to keep facilities sanitized. The crisis has also caused a staff shortage. Purchasing materials and assembling kits is expensive and time-consuming. Rotary’s efforts allowed Hebron staff to focus on their clients.
 
Hebron Housing Services provides emergency, short-term shelter and long-term housing solutions to individuals and families in need. Hebron Housing Annual Gala event will be held virtually on November 7 and will honor Hebron founder Bernie Juno. Tickets can be obtained online.
 
                                        
 
 
RETZER NATURE CENTER PROJECT
HAS BEGUN
 
 
Earlier this year, the Waukesha Rotary Club agreed to provide $45,000 to support a project which would provide improvements to the Retzer Nature Trail.  The Friends of the Retzer Nature Center matched this amount.   The project consists of construction of a series of “pod” areas that will be accessible for all ages and abilities. There will be a variety of outdoor educational components, sensory-based play experiences and STEM activities for families and school groups. This would be the first major upgrade to the Adventure trail since 1994.
 
ROTARY INTERNATIONAL'S #1 GOAL:
END POLIO NOW
 
In the past, the Waukesha Rotary Club was able to hold monthly raffles in order to raise money for RI's POLIO PLUS program.  Because of Covid, we are no longer able to hold these raffles.  Because we are Rotary "International," it is important that we work with RI and the clubs around the world to bring the eradication of polio to the finish line.  So, if throughout the year, between now and May 1st, 2021, you can send a check to help us fund this project, it would be greatly appreciated.  Please put "Polio Fund" in the memo of your check.  The check can be made payable to the Waukesha Rotary Club and mailed to our P.O. Box:

Thank you for playing a part in eradicating this disease from the world – we are truly making history!
 
 
 
Global Grant Scholarship Recipient for 2021-2022.
              Rotary International (RI) District 6270 is pleased to announce the selection of Alaina Eckert, Sussex, WI, as its Global Grant Scholarship applicant for 2021-2022.
              Ms. Eckert is a graduate of Sussex Hamilton H.S. and of The University of Wisconsin—Madison. She has already begun a dual degree, Master of Science/Master of International Nature Conservation, in a cooperative program of the Georg-August Universität in Göttingen, Germany, and Lincoln University in Lincoln, New Zealand.
              The practical approach of the program is to preserve the integrity of nature, in combination with the assessment of risk management and conservation strategy, and offers an invaluable experience in the education of international conservation. The four-semester program offers new perspectives to maintaining biodiversity and ecosystems that allow local communities to be resilient to future ecological changes, maintain economic stability and growth, use adaptive conservation management strategies for both the betterment of the community and the ecosystem, and preserve critical ecological systems. Thus, Ms. Eckert’s program of studies aligns with RI’s “Community Economic Development” Area of Focus, and it anticipates close alignment with RI’s newest Area of Focus, “Protecting the Environment,” which becomes effective on July 1, 2021.
              The amount of the Global Grant Scholarship is U.S. $30,000. RI District 6270 is providing $15,000 of that amount, and The Rotary Foundation is matching it with another $15,000. The Rotary Foundation, RI districts, and Rotary clubs invest in our future leaders and philanthropists by funding scholarships for graduate study through the Global Grant Scholarship program. Information about Rotary’s other scholarship programs can be accessed at:  https://www.rotary.org/en/our-programs/scholarships.
