Welcome!

The Rotary Club of Neenah is committed to the Rotary ideal of "service above self."  Our club is a cross-section of Neenah residents, business and professional people who are not only good friends, but are united in a common commitment to serve others for the benefit of the community.  

The Rotary Club of Neenah is active in our community through community service projects and scholarships.  We hope you join us as a guest at one of our weekly meetings or enjoy one of our public community events: Seafood Fest, Uncorked & Uncapped and The Rotary Classic Golf Scramble.

 

 
 
 
I am deeply honored that you have chosen me as the next President of the Rotary Club of Neenah, a Club with a 90 year tradition of "service above self" and a long line of outstanding Club Presidents. I am humbled by the trust you have placed in me and I pledge to not let you down and will do my best. Rotary is said to be the only organization in the World that has a top leadership change every year without incident and this year will be no exception. Dana and I have met numerous times on a variety of topics and I thank her for her time and counsel while I look forward to her continuing service to the Club as she returns to the Secretary role in the coming year.
 
 
 
 
 
For our next 'Rotary on the Road' event, we were able to secure a tour of the new FVTC Public Safety Training Center. FVTC has asked that we secure registrations for this event at least a week ahead of time to ensure that they can schedule enough tour guides for the size of our group.  All Rotarians and their guests MUST REGISTER using the chapter website by Thursday, July 16th for this tour.  Registration is now open.  Click here to register

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Australian students take opportunity by the horns
The rules of the Shaftesbury Rodeo Academy are simple: no school, no rodeo. It’s a message that teenagers who attend school at Bisley Farm, most of whom have never attended any school regularly, take seriously. Because come Friday night, these aspiring rodeo heroes want to join their friends to ride bulls for a heart-stopping eight seconds, if they last that long. The school in rural Queensland, Australia, also teaches the boys, who are of the Wakka Wakka Aboriginal people, basic academics and farming skills, including how to care for crops and livestock. It’s a fairly common form of...
Illiteracy traps adults, and their families, in poverty
Around the world, millions of adults are unable to read or write, and therefore struggle to earn a living for themselves and their families. Even in the United States, with its considerable resources, there are 36 million adults who can’t read better than the average third-grader, according to the international nonprofit ProLiteracy. In Detroit, Michigan, a widely cited 2003 survey conducted by the National Institute for Literacy found that almost half of residents over age 16 were functionally illiterate -- unable to use reading, speaking, writing, and computer skills in everyday life....
Meet Rotary’s new president
This excerpt from the July issue of The Rotarian magazine profiles the 2015-16 RI president. Before he gives a speech, K.R. Ravindran doesn’t like flowery, adulatory introductions. They make him uncomfortable. The 2015-16 Rotary president would rather keep a low profile and share the credit. If it were up to him, you probably wouldn’t even be reading this article. Negotiating Days of Tranquility during the Sri Lankan civil war so that health workers could administer drops of polio vaccine? Although it was on his desk that the agreement landed, he says, a lot of people worked to make that...
