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

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...
Member interview: Jay Cook helps young people through Rotary Youth Exchange
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian A Rotarian for nearly three decades, Jay Cook has helped hundreds of young people broaden their horizons through Rotary Youth Exchange. Recently, while working for the nonprofit Water Missions International, he’s turned his attention to bringing safe water and sanitation solutions to developing countries and disaster-stricken areas. Cook is a member of the Rotary Club of Charleston Breakfast and the Water and Sanitation Rotarian Action Group. THE ROTARIAN: How did you become involved with Rotary Youth Exchange? COOK: My club was hosting a young...
Technology: To please in a pod(cast)
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian When I was a college student in Wisconsin in the 1970s, those of us who worked at the 10-watt radio station hoped our signal would reach not only the 1,500 students on the Beloit College campus and the 35,000 residents of the town of Beloit but also the people in the cars and trucks passing by on the interstate 3 miles to the east – and possibly, late at night, the 150,000 who lived in the bustling metropolis of Rockford, Ill., 20 miles to the south. Some of us hoped to get jobs in radio after we graduated, and there was even talk about starting...
Polio: The Rotarian Conversation with Aseefa Bhutto Zardari
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian Before her family was forced into exile, before her mother was assassinated, before her father became president, Aseefa Bhutto Zardari was known for something simpler, but in some ways equally powerful: In 1994, she became the first child in Pakistan to receive the oral polio vaccine, as part of the country’s first National Immunization Day. Benazir Bhutto, then prime minister, gave the drops to her daughter herself, a compelling endorsement of the nascent campaign. “I was a baby at the time, so I don’t remember it,” says Bhutto Zardari, now 22. “...
Pakistan's progress: Snapshots from the polio campaign
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian Nearly 90 percent of the world’s polio cases last year occurred in Pakistan. But the country is making dramatic progress in its quest to eradicate the disease: Cases are down by almost 70 percent to date compared with 2014, owing partly to military interventions that year in Taliban-controlled North Waziristan, which have allowed vaccinators to reach hundreds of thousands of children who were previously inaccessible. Improved government leadership, the introduction of inactivated polio vaccine in high-risk districts, and vaccinations at transit...
