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
Today we were joined by Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway who shared with the club an update on all things happening around the City of Madison.  Some of the highlights included an update on the new developments in south Madison, including affordable housing, preventing displacement of current residents and strengthening community ties.  Satya highlighted a couple of building projects in south Madison, including the Black Business Hub, Centro-Hispano, the Center for Black Excellence and the redevelopment of the land across Badger Road from Madison College.  On a macro perspective across the city of Madison, Satya highlighted priorities for growing affordable housing for the middle class, the bus rapid transit system with electric buses, the first electric fire truck in the country here in Madison, and public safety to decrease violence and safer streets (reduce speeds).  Satya also fielded several challenging questions from Rotarians. 
Alan Arntsen, chair of the Lake Monona Waterfront Ad Hoc Committee, stopped by to share future potential plans to transform the Lake Monona waterfront. Alan shared presentations from the three finalists bidding to design the waterfront and answered questions the club members had on the project. Here are links from today's presentation and the community survey that Alan referenced in his presentation.

Today Ray Williams and Melanie Ramey from the Madison Committee on Foreign Relations (MCFR) shared with the club information about their association and examples of recent topics/speakers presenting at recent MCFR meetings. Melanie, a 32 year Rotarian, made a connection between a recent topic on world hunger and what Rotary is doing to provide compact nutritious meals…who knew?  If you missed it, here is the link:
Madison South Rotarians spent Saturday, 3/4 helping to get a Habitat for Humanity of Dane County property ready for its new owners.
Paul Sukenik, Dan Millmann, Shawn Fischer, Lisa and John Gits, Don Taylor and Steve Busalacchi all donned hard hats, wielded hammers and installed siding on the one-car garage. They posed with the appreciative owner at the end of the day.
Thanks to Paul for arranging this wonderful project!
Today Dave Schroeder, National Security Research Strategist at UW Madison and Army National Guard cyber warfare officer, shared with the club information about the United States Cyber Command structure and what they do to protect the United States from cybersecurity threats.  Dave answered cybersecurity questions related to infrastructure, elections, social media, surveillance balloons and more.  If you missed it, here is the link to the presentation:
