A lively crowd was on hand last week to get us going on this Arbor Day – a day to celebrate everything green. Also lighting up the room was our Club’s Marathon Man – Chris Salani who just back from a week in Scottsdale and sporting a snappy pair of Ferrari logo blue running shoes. They looked fast even sitting still!
 
 
 
Image On Friday April 1st and Friday April 8th, Elmbrook Rotary held our Annual Spring food drive to benefit the Waukesha Food Pantry which was lead by club member Arne Landsverk. The club collected 42 items weighing 46lbs and $736. In addition, the club contributed $1000 bringing the total cash donations to $1,736. Thanks to everyone for helping those in need!
 
 

 
 
 
That is correct, plural, as this year for the first time we fielded two Vision Teams to Guatemala!  The first one, under the leadership of John Allen, was from February 7 to 14, and the second, under Christine Spresser was from February 21 to 28.  
 
 
 
At a recent club meeting, new member Karl Schultz gave his Classification Talk and the following provides an overview on his background. Like many Rotarians, Karl has no shortage of interests and achievements between multiple patents as an engineer, membership in the the Porsche Club of America, and former Alderman in Brookfield - list goes on...
 
 
 
Club member Barry James recently announced that this year’s presentation of “Diane’s Dictionaries” took place at Capitol West Academy, St. Martini School, and Trowbridge Street School. Now in the seventh year of the program, it has provided 1,439 dictionaries to young people.
 
 
 

ImageLast month, many of you contributed to the Capitol West Academy School Supplies Drive initiated by Jan Constable and the Community Service Committee. This used to be a once a year event but with the increased demand, our club rose to the occasion and donated the following supplies.

 
 
 
At a recent club meeting, we were fortunate to have not only one, but three classification talks from new members! Franklin Onwubuariri, Andrew McCully, and Pete Moegenburg shared their backgrounds on career, family and why they decided to join Rotary. And just last week, our newest member - Spencer Taintor, who serves as the Head of School at Brookfield Academy, gave his classification talk. Read on to learn more about Pete's talk and watch for more write-ups from newer members in the weeks ahead.
 
 
 
Since 2009, Elmbrook Rotary has sponsored Capitol West Academy's (CWA) Annual Spelling Bee. This year, almost 200 students participated in the event! Each year we’ve provided the first and second place winners at each grade level with prizes including gift cards from Barnes and Noble Book Store. In addition, Club members act as the pronouncers for the event. Each grade level held a preliminary spelling bee in their classrooms and the top three winners for each grade completed in the school spelling bee on January 14th.
 
 
 

Our Speaker at last Friday's meeting was Cathy Lin, who took us through 5000 years of Chinese cultural history in 20 minutes. Cathy is with the Chinese Cultural Center which is sponsoring the Shen Yun Performing Arts presentation next month in Milwaukee.
 
 
 
 


Members of the International Committee recently reported on the implementation of our Global Grant E-Learning project which began this past July with the purchase and installation of the equipment including computers, projectors, screens, software. For newer members who may not be aware, our club was asked in 2014 to consider being the Primary International Sponsor of a Global Grant application by a club in District-2980 Tamil Nadu State, India. The grant was to fund a proposed internet-based learning system for 60 schools across the state with District-2980 being the Primary Host Sponsor.
