Neenah Rotary Corporate Membership

Posted by Lisa Werner
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.

(Neenah, Wis.) – For more than 20 years, the Neenah Rotary Club has recognized students, community leaders and club members who have demonstrated service to others and our community.  The Club recently presented its community and club service awards during its annual Changing of the Guard dinner at the Best Western Premier Bridgewood Resort Hotel.

Jan Williams was honored with the Service Above Self Adult award.  This award is presented to a Neenah-area adult, who is not a member of the Club, and who best represents the idea of community action.  Nominees are chosen on the basis of their outstanding community service and other activities which help the community and those who live in it. Williams has provided countless hours of leadership and commitment to the Neenah High School Basketball Booster Club and Future Neenah’s 3-on-3 Streetball event.

The Jack R. Grist Club Service Award recognizes a Neenah Rotary Club member who epitomizes service and whose values reflect the ideals of Rotary International. Raymond Smith was presented with the award for his years of service and commitment.

President's Post

What a wonderful season for us to Reach Out to Embrace Humanity. We are blessed that Neenah Rotary has touched many lives in our community and around the world.

Recently I had the honor to represent Neenah Rotary at Fox Valley Technology College and presented six scholarships to some very worthy students. Not only did the recipients express their gratitude that afternoon, but their thank you letters confirmed their appreciation.

An uplifting surprise came when I received a personal phone call from the father of one of the recipients sharing how much this scholarship meant to his son and their family. This student’s mother had passed away a few years ago and the father is working to carry out the mother’s wish for their son to receive an education. Our scholarship is making that wish come true.

Christmas miracle, yes, it is for this student and for all the students that Rotarians help to make their dreams come true. We give a life time gift. I ask that you look into your hearts this coming year and continue to give of your time, talents and financial gifts so others in our community will enjoy a blessed holiday.

I hope you all enjoyed the blessings of the holidays with your family and friends and wish you much happiness in the new year.
