Our Brat Stand

Our fall Brat Stand across from UW Madison's Camp Randall Stadium is our primary fundraiser. The club then returns much-needed financial assistance back to the community using a deliberate, thoughtful grant process each Spring.

Active Fellowship Groups

Social connections are the biggest reason our members enjoy our club. Unlike committees, fellowship groups are organized by club members to promote social interaction and fun.

About our Membership

As a medium-sized club of more than 60 active members, the Madison South Rotary club spans all ages and occupations.  
Meeting Recaps
On the shoulders of Giants: Today we honored the legacy of our previous club presidents - from 1970-71 president Bill Giswold to our most recent 2021-2022 president Erin West.  It was fun for all of us to hear the stories/wisdom shared from each previous president.  I think Randy Sproule said it best – in every 5-year span there is at least one inexperienced knucklehead who was president.  No one was perfect, but collectively these previous presidents helped make Madison South Rotary the great club it is today.  If you missed it, here is the link to the video:
Mike Leckrone, COPA’s lead community ambassador and Joe Ross, COPA board member, stopped by today to tell us about COPA’s mission to provide opportunities for underserved children and adults to pursue their interests in performing arts.  Mike along with his family has created the “Leckrone Arts Fund” which will provide financial support for the many users and organizations of the planned COPA arts education campus.  If you are interested in supporting the Leckrone Arts Fund, here is a link to their page:  If you missed it, here is the link to the presentation, including the many charming/funny stories Mike shared with the club:
Joe Balles lit a candle and led the club in a moment of remembrance for the four police officers that lost their lives in the line of duty this year.  Joe introduced former colleagues of the Madison Police Department - Liz Merfeld, Project Coordinator for the Community Oriented Policing Services and Shannon Blackamore, Captain of Community Outreach.  Joe, Liz and Shannon shared with the club the new initiative to build trust and legitimacy through community policing advisory boards.  If you missed it, here is the link to the presentation:
Vern Stenman, President of Big Top Sports + Entertainment, stopped by today to tell us a little about the history of rejuvenating Breeze Stevens Field first with concerts and now the Forward Madison FC soccer club.  Vern also shared insights on the soccer club from the kits (uniforms) to the players to the club boosters.  If you missed it, here is a link to Vern’s presentation:
Sam Rubin – General Manager for the Madison Mallards, stopped by today to share what’s new with the Madison Mallards and how they are engaging to give back to the local Madison community.  We even learned what a Muskellard is (you’ll have to watch the presentation to understand).  If you missed it, here is a link to the presentation:
