What's Happening at Marshfield Rotary
Paul treated Rotarians with Champagne Cake made by 2 1/2 Cups in honor of his 20th anniversary at Prevail Bank. It was delicious!
Happy Anniversary, Paul!
Rotarian Sarah Chy from Marshfield Area United Way shared the Volunteer Reception Center Training being offered by Marshfield Area United Way, Wood County Emergency Management, and United Way of South Wood & Adams Counties. What is a Volunteer Reception Center? The Volunteer Reception Center team is trained to take spontaneous volunteers responding to an emergency like a natural disaster or missing person and turn them into an efficient workforce by pairing them with the best volunteer positions for their skill set. This training is an easy way to contribute to the community -- for a relatively small time investment, you are trained, ready, and able to respond and help in a moment where our community may be in greatest need and help to organize volunteers to maximize their effectiveness. 
Participants in this training will learn what a volunteer reception center is and why they are used, how to get one up and running, and what their roles are as volunteers within the VRC. The training session will be from 5:00 pm until 6:30pm and will be held at the Forward Bank Community Room in the lower level of Forward Bank in Marshfield. Dinner will be provided, courtesy of Pizza Ranch.
Sarah & the rest of the United Way crew hopes to see you there!
We were happy to induct a new member at this past week's meeting. Welcome, Toni Chacon and thank you to her sponsor Shannon Neinast!
Uptown Coffee was the site of the 5th Thursday Social Hour for our Rotary club last week!
In months with five Thursdays, in lieu of a regular meeting the last week of the month Marshfield Rotary has been meeting at Uptown Coffee for morning coffee & casual conversation. Many thanks to the organizers and attendees -- it is always a fun time! For those who were not able to attend, we hope you can join us next time!

Did you know that:

Items being collected include diapers, wipes, pull-ups, bottles, sippy cups, gender-neutral onesies & sleepers as well as some larger items like car seats & playpens.

On Saturday, several Rotarains volunteered to distribute Rotary Passports to children attending the Marshfield Cultural Fair. 
Rotary has a history of participating in this wonderful community event and it was great to see the Cultural Fair back in-person. This event is a great way to promote not only Rotary's global mission, but also our local presence in the community.
Volunteers included: Laura Kostock-Ganshirt, Jane Wagner, Laurel Peterson, Mandy Sondelski, Tara Mannigel and Becky Huebner-Leau.  A special thank you to Jackie Zoellner for arranging the event and Darla Leick for set-up.  It was an enjoyable combination of service, entertainment and delicious food throughout the day!
Dave Valle reports that the Marshfield Rotary Foundation received a donation for $120 recently. First Impressions Dentistry selected our Foundation as their "Cause of the Day" and presented this check in honor of Al Nystrom.
Thank you First Impressions & thank you Al for your tireless work in our community!
The Marshfield Rotary Foundation which acts as a fiscal agent for Rotary Winter Wonderland holds a Charitable Money Market account at Forward Bank which pays out an annual contribution.
Over the past 10 years the Foundation has usually received between $400-700 each year. This year, this cash donation has increased to $1,499.05! Being part of this program at Forward Bank is another way we are adding money to the Winter Wonderland project which supports over 30 area food banks and programs that address food insecurity in Central Wisconsin. 
Thank you Forward Bank!
