Neenah Rotary


The Neenah Rotary Club 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.

Neenah Rotary 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 Scholarship Scramble.

Want to have FUN while raising money to support youth? Our next Rotary Classic Golf Scramble is scheduled for May 21, 2015. A joint fundraising effort with the Menasha and Fox Cities Morning Rotary Clubs, our portion of the profits pays for our Youth Exchange students (like Marta), STRIVE, and Strive 2B:) student leadership development programs. Please contact Bob Karrmann if you are willing to help on the planning committee or take over as co-chair of the event Meetings will begin soon and you do not need to be a golfer to assist- many other skills are needed!

Want to be part of the international scope of our club? Then join the World Community Service Committee on Thursday, January 29th at 11:15 am to learn more about our current water projects in Burundi and help decide what our next project will be. Contact Eric Glassco, WCS Chair with questions .

Neenah Rotary introduced a corporate membership program in July of 2014.  This program allows up to four members of a Neenah business to be active Rotarians within the club.  One of the members must be a member of the senior executive team, we encourage the others to be from different sectors of the company.  All corporate members are allowed, and encouraged, to be as active as possible but are allowed to share the attendance requirement.  A brochure is being developed to allow Rotarians to introduce the concept to area businesses but if any Rotarians know of good businesses to contact about the program, they are encouraged to make a proposal to Lisa Werner and the Membership Committee for consideration and contact.  Our current Corporate Members, and longtime Neenah Rotary supporters, include Westgor Funeral Home and FNB Fox Valley.

The following Rotarians recently completed all assigned new member tasks, which includes attending or volunteering at a Rotary event, joining a standing or fundraising committee, completing their Orientation and Inductions, and servicing as Co-Greeter.  They therefore are allowed to remove their red 'New Rotarian' sticker and are considered fully active Rotarians.  Congratulations to Trevor Rabbach and Sara Westgor-Whiteside for completing their new member tasks!

Intense summer program gives Israeli and Palestinian teens new perspectives
Students from Israel and Palestine sat together at a local art studio in Encinitas, California, USA, one day last summer, drawing portraits of one another and learning how to live in peace. Kelly Mellos, an organizer of the project from the Rotary Club of Encinitas Coastal, says that drawing someone who is sitting so close helps break down social barriers between the young people. "They see how many similarities there are between them," she says. "And they begin to understand we are all just people. There is a respect and trust that builds." The students were participating in a program run by...
Rotary releases $34.8 million for polio immunization activities worldwide

President-elect urges Rotary members to ‘Be a Gift to the World’
Using their talents, expertise, and leadership, Rotary members worldwide are asked to be gifts to the world this upcoming 2015-16 Rotary year. Rotary International President-elect K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran called Sunday's address to incoming district governors the "most significant moment of my life." "All of you have been given so many gifts.

Man in iron lung discovers Rotary
One might think a man living with polio in an iron lung would know about Rotary. But it wasn't until Paul Alexander had a business meeting with a member in Duncanville, Texas, earlier this year that he learned Rotary fights to eradicate the very disease that left him almost completely paralyzed. "I was completely blown away by the idea. For all these years, I didn't know the work they were doing," says Alexander, a practicing attorney in Dallas. "It's such a perfect fit for me." Alexander contracted polio during a major U.S. outbreak of the disease in the late 1950s when he was six years old...
Alumni recognized for expanding mental health services and supporting Rotary’s work
