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.
Advancing peace brings Rotary, U.S. Olympic athletes together
On an evening in April, more than 50 representatives from the Rotary Peace Centers and members of the U.S. Olympic Committee who had gathered for an event in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA, were treated to a surprise: a pre-dinner performance by the U.S. men's Olympic gymnastics team. "They showcased their prowess in tumbling, the high bar, and the pommel horse.

Rotaract Outstanding Project Award recognizes innovative programs
Though they were a long way from home, members of the Rotaract Club of Bugolobi, Uganda, felt confident they could tackle problems in rural Kanabulemu during their annual 1000 Smiles project. Their original plan focused on curtailing the spread of HIV/AIDS. It's in the Rakai District, where the first case of AIDS in Uganda was uncovered in 1982 and about 12 percent of the population has been infected with HIV in recent years. But the Rotaractors discovered that problems in the village extended far beyond the disease. "The community lacked water, the school was in a sorry state, and the...
Pope welcomes Rotary to Jubilee audience
Thousands of Rotary members, motivated by a special invitation from Pope Francis, gathered at the Vatican in Rome on Saturday to celebrate a message of compassion, inclusiveness, and service to humanity. At midmorning, the group -- numbering some 9,000 members from 80 countries -- made its way through the congested streets of Rome, past the tight security surrounding St. Peter's Square, and settled into the area reserved for Rotary in front of St. Peter's Basilica for the Jubilee audience. Francis, a 79-year-old Argentine, urged the crowd of more than 100,000, which included members of the...
What millennials love about Rotary
From the May 2016 issue of The Rotarian If there is one absolute truth about millennials, it is this: Anyone who says there is an absolute truth about millennials risks being subjected to their collective eye roll. Millennials are individuals, and fiercely so. According to the Pew Research Center, most of them don’t even like being called “millennials,” let alone hearing generalizations about their shared attitudes and behaviors. Case in point: Christa Papavasiliou, 31, recoils at the notion that older folks see her generation as a bunch of selfie-snapping smartphone addicts. “I’m the...
