What's Happening at Sunrise Rotary
Our Rotary merger was finalized July 1st. Based on attendance as well as feedback from numerous club members, the board feels that it is time that we revisit how we schedule meetings so that we might find a more simple, regular schedule going forward.
 
Ben Bauer was officially installed as the District 6250 Governor on Saturday July 9th in the company of several Marshfield Rotary members, past District Governors and fellow District Leadership. Many thanks to Sheri Meissner and Teri Wilczek for pulling together such a wonderful event. The group spent time socializing and sharing well wishes and warm thoughts for Ben as he starts his important year of leadership. Read more for some more photos!
 
The Marshfield Rotary Club celebrated its outgoing club leadership by recognizing the boards from both former clubs (Marshfield Sunrise and Marshfield Noon) and the newly combined board and club leaders for the merged Rotary Club of Marshfield! Past President Diane Meissner then passed the gavel to Jenny Resch who will serve in the 2022-2023 Rotary Year. Jenny shared gratitude with all of the members who serve our club and our community and drew attention to the new theme for her Presidential year; "Imagine Rotary". Congratulations Jenny and all of our club leaders who make what we do possible! Click here to check out the Passing the Gavel Program.
