Important Dates

Sale Period: October 28th - November 8th

Delivery: November 15th

Thank you for your support!

Program Director, Allie Dorshorst, Spoke to the club on changes that have effected Big Brothers Big Sisters over the past year. The Wood County office has merged with the Portage County office in order to continue providing this service for young people in and around the Marshfield area. Let's take a look at what this service is:
 

Big Brothers Big Sisters looks for partners who can support their current mentoring match load as well as their growth. Unlike many mentoring organizations, BBBS requires that they carefully select and screen volunteer mentors who are committed to long-term service.  They provide staff support to the volunteers, mentees and families throughout the relationships, making available necessary training and ongoing help to keep the mentoring going strong. This is why they feel their mentoring is successful.

Among their greatest needs are male volunteers.  Boys disproportionately represent kids on the “waiting to be matched” lists.

If you or someone you know would like to get involved with this wonderful community support program please reach out and contact Big Brothers Big Sisters at:

243 S. Central Ave #109
Marshfield, WI 54449
Phone: (715)387-6198

As active and engaged Rotarians, we view vocational service as a way of life. Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their professions and to practice high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business and community leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations and inspire others in the process by volunteering to serve others.
The concept of vocational service is rooted in Rotary’s
objectives, which calls on Rotarians to encourage and foster:
• High ethical standards in business and professions
• The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations
• The dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity
to serve society.  
That being said, lets celebrate one of the many ways Marshfield Sunrise Rotary serves the local community by reviewing the 2018 Scholarship Awards!

This week's speaker was a friendly Funeral director named Ted Jackan of Rembs Funeral home.
 
With dashing good looks and a mixture of charm and confidence that would put Frank Sinatra to shame.  We realized that this wasn't a presentation, but more of a journey...  He swept us off our Rotarian feet, and took us back in time... a time to die for.
 
Ted's presentation carried us into the history of Rembs funeral which reaches all the way back to 1887.  Being one of the oldest businesses in Marshfield, he brought this rich past to life with original photos and descriptions of what the "Undertaking and Furniture" business was like made for a truly fascinating presentation.
 
During his presentation, he juxtaposed pictures from the original funeral home from its opening day in 1961 with how the building looks today from the same locations after its redesign.
 
Touching on the most important part of the company, the caring a respectful staff was the focus on the latter part of the presentation.  Together, the Rembs staff (which is mostly family) is more of a team and together are greater than the sum of their parts.  
 
Speaking about death is not a comfortable subject, but the presentation was light hearted, respectful and most importantly fun, which is key when presenting a topic so closely related to sadness. 
 
Eleanganny is a small community based around farming and small business in India’s Southeastern State of Tamil Nadu. Men and women work as laborers in the rice and sugarcane fields. Meeting the basic needs of each day takes precedence over planning for the future. The average annual family income is 800$. The average family has 3 children. Public Education in Eleanganny isn’t free, families must pay tuition and other fees to send their children to school. Education is the only way for the children in these rural communities to find more promising opportunities for their futures.
Tuition Support is essential to improve access to existing education. Just 24$ per month could help a child through a year of High School!
A one time donation or the commitment to provide ongoing financial support can make a world of difference for a child’s future. Your gift of any amount can help a child have a brighter future! 
Call 715-387-4135 to find out how you can help!
Our outbound exchange student Brady shared his amazing experience in Brazil with us. 
Rotary Youth Exchange has a goal to promote the advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace at the person to person level and is for high school aged students, aged 16-18, interested in living and studying abroad for one year.

Volunteers sought to prevent dangerous falls in Wood County
Marshfield Clinic is seeking volunteers to serve Independent and Upright, a falls prevention program, in Wood County.
 
Marshfield Clinic and the Lincoln County Falls Coalition developed Independent and Upright to empower older adults to maintain their independence by staying safe in their home. Program participants are referred by a medical provider, family member, friend or self. The program is available for all community members in Lincoln and Wood counties.
 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that an older adult falls every second of every day. Among older Americans, falls are the No. 1 cause of injuries and death from injury.
 
Volunteers will visit the homes of older adults to identify fall risk factors and connect the individual to community resources to make safety changes. The ideal volunteer is interested in supporting seniors, possesses good communication skills, is empathetic and age 55+ (not required). Volunteers are required to complete the Marshfield Clinic application process and training.
 
If you are interested in receiving more information, or if you are interested in volunteering, please contact Laura Zelenak at Marshfield Clinic Center for Community Outreach at 715-221-8400 or visit cco.marshfieldclinic.org.

Meet Gary, an adventurer, volunteer and fellow Rotarian.
 
 It is no mistake Gary came to speak with Rotarians on June 1st,  International Children’s Day. He began his journey with Catholic Relief Services (CRS), some years back and has traveled the world sharing his agricultural knowledge with underprivileged countries to better the lives of children around the world.  His volunteer time was increasingly focused on agroenterprise programming, which beyond increasing productivity, focused on the skills and conditions necessary to add value to farm produce and connect farmers to higher value markets. Gary volunteers Agricultural Advancement Seminars to villagers and farmers spanning the country side through Ecuador, Mexico and Nicaragua. He believes teaching farmers the importance of feeding their live stock nutrient based food will improve the nutrient in the milk and other animal products supplied to the community. The higher nutrient value provided to the children, the healthier they will be. 
Gary recently purchased a hotel in Ecuador for volunteers to stay at while volunteering. He calls this opportunity MAVVI. follows is a link on how you can become an adventurer and volunteer.

Although it looks like America may have weathered the worst of the recession , many states are still reeling from the economic slump and most have made large cuts in public service funding, including higher education. As a result, public colleges and universities have increased tuition, meaning students are probably going to pay more now. This is why scholarships have become so essential to the majority of students who want to graduate with a college degree. Sunrise Rotary offers several annual Scholarships to those pursuing a higher education and the winners of those scholarships are in!

The New Horizons Scholarship goes to Denise Heimstead for one thousand dollars.

The Service Before Self Scholarship goes to both Rachel Fernandez and Tare Guden for five hundred dollars each.

The Work Based Scholarship goes to both Samuel Bauman and Tiffany Gudan for five hundred dollars each.

 

 

Kim Krueger, North Wood County Historical Society's Coordinator, gave a presentation on the history of the society and the history of Marshfield. 

 

The North Wood County Historical Society was established in 1956. The Historical Society is the caretaker of many historical articles that have been generously donated from individuals desiring to bring the past back to life!  The Historical Society hopes to accomplish this by preserving the stories, memories and culture of the people who have lived in the North Wood County area and make them available to the public.

The North Wood County Historical Society currently has 134 members, and is always excepting new members to participate! Individuals, Families and Businesses are all welcome to participate. Membership to the Historical society provides wonderful benefits to businesses and citizens alike. There are volunteer positions and committee positions currently available.

Introducing, Leadership Marshfield, Class of 2018! The project name is PRESENTS 4 PARENTS which includes the following team members; Mary Sue Kauer (a fellow Rotarian), Tammy Beil, Kristen Dean and Barb Kuhn.

 

They launched their project last Christmas, serving the Marshfield Area Community Center for Outreach’s Youth Net program. Prior to their event, the leadership group collected merchandise donations and gift wrapping supplies from the community.  They also received monetary donations from local businesses.

 

On December 18th, 2017 they set up what’s called a “pop-up shop” at the Youth Net site. As the children came into the “shop” they were given a ticket to trade for a present for Mom and/or Dad. The gifts were set up on tables according to which parent they were “shopping” for. In addition, there was also a table where the Leadership Group could help the children wrap the gifts and put on a gift tag.

 

Many of the children said this was the first time they had been able to give a gift to their parent and many had never even wrapped a present before!
 

Presents 4 Parents drew inspiration from the Mission of the Rotary Foundation: “to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty”.

 

The leadership group has found a unique way to uphold these Rotary values. As a team, they feel that providing low-income children an opportunity to give is essential to promoting a spirit of generosity and goodwill within families, and ultimately the world.
 

Recently, the Board of Marshfield Sunrise Rotary has added Presents 4 Parents to our list of community projects to further assist this project in becoming a successful community service.

 

When you see Mary Sue, please let her know how happy we are for her Leadership Marshfield project and share your excitement for Rotary’s involvement!

Some of our best Sunrise Rotary Breakfasts are those that educate AND give a glow of pride for Marshfield! Last weeks breakfast offered SO much interest and history that I had to make a choice. I can focus on the rich history aviation in Marshfield or one of the Nations leaders in the commuter airline industry. I have chosen the later of the two. For those of you who have not met Mr. Shwery, let me introduce you. 
 
Roy P. Shwery has been deeply involved in aviation since 1939 when he soloed in Janesville at the age of 16. In 1950, he received his ATP Rating, and had at that point acquired all pilot ratings available. He also has an A & P mechanic's license, and has accumulated approximately 28,ooo flying hours.
As a member of the armed forces in World War II, he flew co-pilot command in medium and heavy bombers until discharged in 1946. Upon discharge, Mr. Shwery chose filling a position as an instructor in Marshfield, Wisconsin. After a brief time he purchased a Navion aircraft, which was used for charter. In 1948 the fixed base operation in Marshfield was purchased. Active development of a charter business, as well as flight instruction, aircraft sales, maintenance and gas sales followed.
Mr Shwery has been acknowledged as on of the pioneers in the commuter airline industry. There have been several articles written in national publications focusing on is efforts in the commuter airline development, some of which have been included in the Reader's Digest.
In the early 1960s, the City of Marshfield had acquired the services of Republic Airlines (then known as North Central Airlines), but the service at the time was inadequate and ill-times. In 1964, Mr. Shwery brought into existence one of the first commuter airlines, Midstate Airlines, with one round trip daily from Marshfield to Wisconsin Rapids to Milwaukee, and then to Chicago O'Hare, with a return in the evening. With an increased demand for services, additional flights were added, and several more cities were included until eleven different cities became involved in the rout system. A fleet of six Beech 18s were in service until 1968, when the Beech 99's were purchased. In 1977 the fleet was again changed to Swearingen Metroliners.
Roy P. Shwery is recognised today as a pioneer in the commuter airline industry. He served three years on the Board of Directors for the Commuter Airline Association of America (CAAA) during its formative years.

What is Vocational Service?
 

Vocational Service is one of Rotary’s Avenues, calling every Rotarian to:

  • Aspire to high ethical standards in their  occupation;
  • Recognize the worthiness of all useful  occupations, and;
  • Contribute their vocational talents to the problems and needs of society.
Sara Schueller and Marisa Steinbach shared with the club how Vocational Service is aiding our community. The primary focus is on education of  our local youth and non traditional students. A few ways Sara and Marisa have gotten our club involved is through RYLA, scholarships and Extreme Exploration.  Through their focus and dedication thousands of students are given opportunity and direction, inspiration and understanding. If your interested in being involved with the Vocational Avenue there is always room for more volunteers! 
 
 
The World Affairs Seminar (WAS) is a unique interactive educational program for high school students, sponsored by Rotary International District 6270. The week-long experience provides an opportunity for international students from a variety of backgrounds to discuss issues in a non-threatening environment. Since WAS first accepted students in 1977, over 30,000 future world leaders have participated. Many have stayed in touch with the friends they made at WAS, even forming business relationships, political contacts and family friendships.
 
 
The World Affairs Seminar is an international youth initiative of Rotary International District 6270.  Our vision is to bring better understanding of world problems to young people from around the globe, using current issues as a learning platform. In the course of this study, the WAS provides opportunities for participants to discuss issues with other young people from around the world. Emphasis is on promoting better understanding of the causes of international conflict.  The idea is if the causes are understood and solutions developed in a cooperative environment, problems are more likely to be solved peacefully.
 

The 2018 World Affairs Seminar will be hosted at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

For more information on how to get involved please call   414-453-4984 or email http://www.carrollu.edu/
