District Governor's Message

Dear Rotarians,

This has been a very dynamic and innovative year for Rotary in our District.  Among those innovations have been the District Ethics Initiative, the District Leadership Academy, and the Future Vision Task Force designed to make sure that we have the support in place for our clubs when the new International Foundation Rules go into effect on July 1, 2013.  We have continued support for Club Visioning and expanded multi-club projects.  To directly benefit people within our District, we have expanded support for Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), Interact, and Rotaract.  I want to take a moment to highlight two other initiatives that will directly benefit the clubs in our District.

The District 6250 Charitable Trust has now been created.  This is a Wisconsin non-profit corporation that will be set up as a 501(c)(3) organization which will allow contributions to be tax exempt.  This is not designed to compete with existing local club foundations or the Rotary International Foundation.  This new organization will provide four important services to our District.

First, it will be available for use by clubs that do not have their own local foundation.  We have many clubs in the District who do not want to financially establish and support a local foundation, but would benefit from a tax exemption for fundraisers for Rotary projects.  Much like a community foundation, there will be separate designated accounts for any club wishing to use the charitable trust and all funds raised by the club will be maintained in that separate account for that particular club’s Rotary projects.

The second important feature will be Emergency Disaster Relief.  In the past, we have seen tragedy strike and Rotarians respond.  Often we make individual contributions and, on occasion, contributions through our clubs.  It is my hope that with a tax exempt  District organization, individuals and clubs willing to support disaster relief would make their contribution to The Rotary District 6250 Charitable Trust and receive a tax deduction.  Combining our efforts, a large gift will be made in the name of Rotary from our District.  Moreover, this would be another way our clubs can work together in common cause for the common good.

The third benefit would be to have specialized funds within the Charitable Trust to support Rotary programs within our District, such as RYLA and Youth Exchange.  For example, the La Crosse Valley View Rotary Club will be making a donation of approximately $20,000.00 to the new District Charitable Trust to support scholarships for Youth Exchange.  Other clubs and Rotarians who wish to support that cause will know that their donations are not only tax deductible, but will be dedicated for that purpose.  Fourth, on rare occasions, Rotary Clubs do dissolve.  After expenses are paid, there are often funds left over that were raised by Rotary for Rotary purposes.  These funds will now be transferred to The Rotary District Charitable Trust.  They will be held initially for two years so that if another Rotary Club is established in that area, the funds can be then sent to that new Rotary Club.  However, if no Rotary Club develops in that area, the monies will then be used for Rotary purposes to support Rotary programs. 

The other special initiative I would like to highlight is the joint fund raising effort for a project in Thailand as part of the Group Study Exchange we have this year with Australia.  Because both the United States and Australia are developed countries, we asked the two GSE Teams to work with the two Districts to develop a Rotary program in a developing country and Thailand was chosen.  Our GSE Team helped to raise funds for this project while in Australia, and the Australian team that will arrive shortly in our District will do the same while they are with us.  In addition, we are asking all the clubs of the District to provide at least one quality item for the silent auction at the District Conference and the proceeds will be used to help support this project that will provide fire extinguishers in a slum area of Bangkok, Thailand.
 
Finally, I want to call your attention to the Positive Athlete Initiative that District 6250 is working on with District 6220 and 6270.  Packer great, Greg Jennings, along with the Positive Athlete organization, is seeking nominations of high school student athletes.  The purpose of this movement is to inspire young athletes and emphasize the importance of playing sports in a positive way.  The award does not go to the most successful athlete, but the athlete that best exemplifies a positive attitude, team support, and character leadership.  There are more details on this program in a separate article in the newsletter.
 
What we have seen this year in our District is quality support for our clubs and increasing cooperation by clubs within our District.  The more we can find ways to cooperate and support one another, the greater will be our impact on our local communities and the good we can do in the wider world.  I eagerly look forward to seeing all of you at the District Conference on June 8-9, 2012, in La Crosse.  We will celebrate what’s right with the world, share ideas, expand our horizons on what we can do in Rotary, and have a lot of fun.  For more information on the conference, all you need to do is click here.  See you in La Crosse!

All the best,

District News, Events and Announcements
 

District Assembly and District Conference Early Bird Special

This year, District 6250 is trying something new as it ends the current year and prepares for the new Rotary year.  We are holding District Assembly and District Conference together.  District Assembly, which is a training session for club officers, committee chairs and other interested Rotarians, with specialized training tracks for club treasurers, secretaries, membership chairs, public image chairs, and presidents-elect, will be held on Friday morning, immediately before the luncheon that marks the beginning of the District Conference.  The District Conference is a celebration of the Rotary year and all of the great things that have happened in our district's clubs.  We have a wonderful line-up of speakers and events for everyone.  Here's the special – if you sign up for both Assembly and District Conference, and for the opening lunch on Friday on or before May 21, the District will refund the cost of the lunch.  Who says there's no free lunch?  The registration process isn't capable of waiving the fee for lunch, so you will need to complete your registration, pay for all of the meals you plan to attend, and then apply for a refund. 

Your District Leadership (which would include Governor Chuck, Governor Elect Rob, Governor Nominee Dean and Governor Nominee Designate Dave, as well as others who prefer to remain anonymous) believe that every club in the district could benefit by having at least five of its members attend these two events.  By holding them jointly, we're keeping the number of busy weekends down, while still giving all of our District Rotarians a big helping of Rotary facts, fun and fellowship.
 
Please note that there is no registration fee for either Assembly or District Conference. The more of you who come, the better the interchange of ideas and the more all of us benefit.  Please be a part of this most important Rotary weekend of the year.

Time to Register!

Submitted by Bill Hoel, Chair, 2012 District Conference

Hello Rotarians!

If I asked you to find me someone who fit this description, could you do it?:  A Holocaust Survivor, who would never have told anyone he was a Holocaust Survivor, if not for his Rotary Club.

Now, how about finding two people that fit that description??  It’s an intriguing story that will bring you an absolutely thrilling speaker at our district conference. 
 
Find me a non-Rotarian (never a member) who is a five-time Paul Harris Fellow!  She will speak at our conference. If you think you know what Rotary is about – or especially if you’re not sure you know what Rotary is all about,  Penny LeGate will make you know why you are a Rotarian. 
Registration is open online, and you should have received a registration flyer, or you should very shortly receive one. 
 
Great speakers, good fellowship, the chance to raise some money for our district’s first multi-district project, all on the beautiful banks of the Mighty Mississippi.
 
See you in June in La Crosse!

Reminder – The cutoff for booking a room is May 7th, so please make prompt reservations.

Rotary Heroes to be Honored at District Conference 

Honoring Rotary Heroes will be a meaningful and motivating part of this June’s District Conference and every club is strongly encouraged to participate.  To date, the Rotary Heroes project has garnered tremendous excitement.  However, we have not yet heard from every club.  If your club has not yet selected a Rotary Hero, the following guide lines may prove helpful in your club’s decision making process.  Look for Rotarians that model “Service above Self” both in their club and in their community. You may want to honor a Rotarian who has recently outdone themselves. Perhaps you want to honor a senior member for many years of service. The only requirement is that your honoree be a Rotarian.

Submission of your club’s Rotary Hero selection or requests for additional information can be made to the Rotary Heroes District Conference Planning Committee via Todd Restel at 608-791-3699 or TRESTEL@1SUPPLY.COM.

 

 

GSE Australia - A Mission Down Under Accomplished 

On the plane ride home from Sydney, Australia, a young boy sat behind me. With his nose nuzzled up to the window, he peered out onto the coast of Los Angeles. He explained to his younger brother what they were seeing outside the cabin window. 

“Now those are baseball fields,” he said with his Aussie accent. “See the diamonds with the sand on them. I played baseball once. Look - they’re everywhere!” The two boys oohed and awed at the baseball fields, the American football fields and the expansive city and surrounding county– nearly half the population of the entire continent of Australia.

“Once you set foot in America, you’ll love it,” the boy told his brother.  I sat back grinning. Yep, that’s what it’s like when you see a new country for the first time – regardless of how old you are. 
 
For me it happened a month prior when I landed in Australia as a member of the Rotary District 6250 Group Study Exchange team. My baseball fields came in a different form. I oohed and awed at pack kangaroos in the wild, birds the color of the rainbow, sandy beaches spanning miles and people who really do say “g’day mate.” 
 
How do you explain a journey where everything is absolutely new and incredible? Our team fossicked for sapphires, climbed an 18-meter-high pile of raw sugar, surfed ocean waves, captured photos of our auras and held a fat koala. We toured farms, helicopter rescue centers, surf clubs, newspapers, a manufacturing plant, a wine making college and a macadamia nut plantation. And, that’s just the beginning. 
 
I visited universities with marketing departments similar to the one where I work. We dually noted the similarities between our techniques and technology despite 10,000 miles. We shared marketing ideas to promote school spirit and discussed how we manage our social media. But the best part of this trip was the lasting connections we made. When I met Alstonville Rotary President Ross Turvey, I was distraught to say the least. He wanted our team to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” in front of his Rotary club – with no rehearsal or background music. Any good American knows that would be a huge mistake unless you’re Whitney Houston. But we did it and everyone joined in. Ross redeemed himself many more times to me.  For one, he introduced us to his fabulous wife and daughters. The entire Turvey family is now friends with me on Facebook.
 
But it wasn’t only the Turveys who made the experience special. I cried when I left my host mother, Ginny, at the Gold Coast. I had only known the woman three days, but the intense discussions over her dinner table made her feel like family, nurturing me on a life journey. And I’ll never forget Simon Brook who spent two days as an unsolicited chauffeur for our team, insisting that he show us the best of what the Gold Coast has to offer from surfing Rainbow Beach waves to looking out at the view from the top of Q1 – the city’s tallest building.
 
My list goes on - and on. I learned there will always be a place in my heart for Aussies — their silly, slang phrases, caring nature and willingness to go out of their way for you. Rotary Group Study Exchange is an opportunity to grow culturally, professionally and personally. But most importantly, it turns a country that is a complete mystery into a series of meaningful memories. I can’t think of a better way to build bridges between people and ultimately bring peace to the world. 
 
It was a ‘mission down under’ accomplished. But, I have to admit, as we landed in Los Angeles, I felt a little jealous of those young boys behind me. They would soon discover that all those baseball fields were just the beginning. Much more excitement and understanding was in store for them should they have the opportunity to really meet the people. Thanks to Rotary for making that experience possible for our team. It was a life changing, cultural exchange.

La Cresecent Rotarians Lead City Clean Up - 
Rotarians in La Crescent headed into the city's neighborhoods for a clean-up that garned lots of community attention. Saturday, April 21, was Neighbor’s Day in La Crescent. Volunteers took on three different project requests.  The event was highlighted on the front page of the “Houston County News” and included a picture of Rotarian Chuck Dockendorff.  The last few paragraphs of the news article had a great focus on Rotary.  Click here for the full story posted April 25th in the Houston County News.

Rotary Youth Exchange - Take Pride in How Your Club Can Help Students

Submitted by Judy Levine, District Youth Exchange Chair

I want to share a true story that I hope will convince you that youth exchange can make such a difference. Please take the time to read the whole story.

Several years ago the West Towne Middleton club sponsored a student. This student was a bright student who did not have the financial means to go on exchange. She came from a troubled family and didn’t know anything of living with a family that many of us as Rotarians take for granted. The 10th grade principal at her high school must have seen possibilities in this student. He was a Rotarian and knew that the West Towne Middleton club was going to provide a full scholarship for a student to go on exchange. Mary Feldt of that club helped prepare this girl to go on exchange to Brazil.

In her words...
“For one year I ate, slept, lived and breathed everything Brazilian. I went to school, I travelled the country, I learned the language and the culture. I walked the streets of the favelas and was amazed that in a country with people who had such wealth and beauty, there were children living on the street and people living in whole neighborhoods made of cardboard boxes. We had been poor, but nothing like this. I swam in the ocean, danced in Carnaval, walked streets of cobble stone and for the first time in my life, met Black people that had retained much of their African Heritage. I was amazed at the Afro Brazilian culture and how it had evolved so differently than that of the African American. In it all, these people were full of life and shared with me their opinions and views of the US and of the world."

Click here to read the rest of her narrative.

This student has just graduated for the UW Medical School. She wants to focus on helping disadvantaged families. Yes, your club can make a difference!

Next January, the Oregon club has agreed to host a disadvantaged student from South Africa. The Rotary club in South Africa is paying her expenses to get here. The Oregon club will provide extra funding so the student can experience a wonderful year here. Hopefully, we will be able to make that kind of change to our South African student.
 
Outbounds
Our current students being hosted in other countries are now hearing when they will be returning. Most will return in late June or early July. Please welcome them when you return. Next year’s outbound students and their parents recently attended an orientation to prepare them for next year. We have a great group of students and I am looking forward to seeing them again at our district conference.

Inbound Students

Soon it will be time for clubs to commit to hosting an exchange student for the 2013-2014 Rotary year. Please urge your club to host. You can’t believe the difference it makes in these students. Clubs can choose to host a student who will arrive in August of 2013 or January of 2014.

If you would like more information, please contact me (Judy Levine), the district chair for youth exchange. I can be reached at 608 220-2949 or by email at judyalevine@gmail.com. I will be happy to come and talk with your board or make a presentation to your club.

Rotary Clubs of Wisconsin and Greg Jennings Present Positive Athlete Awards

The Rotary Clubs of Wisconsin will be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2011-2012 Wisconsin Positive High School Athlete Awards this Spring.  Packer great, Greg Jennings and Positive Athlete are coordinating this effort. Rotary is all about “positivity” and we believe this program will have a major impact on the every youth playing sports in the state. This requires no money or special efforts by District Rotary Clubs, but it does require that this information be given to your high school principal right away. The principal then sends any nominations directly to Positive Athlete.


Here is a quick snapshot of the program:
* Packers Pro Bowl wide receiver Greg Jennings is the spokesperson for movement to inspire young athletes that learning to play sports the “positive way” will help build life skills they will be able to use long after their playing days are over.  For more about the movement, check out www.positiveathlete.org.
* In addition to the clubs in District 6250, Rotary Clubs in 6270 and 6220 will also officially join Greg in his efforts to find the 23 “Most Positive High School Athletes” in their particular sport in the state of Wisconsin.
 
The 23 high school sports categories are:
Cross Country
Football
Golf (Girls)
Golf (Boys)
Soccer (Boys)
Soccer (Girls)
Swimming (Girls)
Swimming (Boys)
Tennis (Girls)
Tennis (Boys)
Volleyball (Boys)
Volleyball (Girls)
Basketball (Boys)
Basketball (Girls)
Gymnastics
Hockey (Boys)
Hockey (Girls)
Cheerleading
Wrestling
Baseball
Softball
Track & Field (Boys)
Track & Field (Girls)


* These 23 athletes will have the opportunity to meet Greg this June at a ceremony in either Milwaukee or Green Bay.

HOW WILL THE ROTARY CLUBS OF WISCONSIN PARTICIPATE?

*  Rotary Clubs of Wisconsin will be the Presenting Sponsor of the Awards program
*  Each of our clubs will help stimulate nominations for the awards by contacting their local high school principals office or school superintendent’s office to explain the program and provide the school with the Nomination Form.   Here are some points to make in that conversation:
  1. We’re not looking for the “best” athletes in your school, only the athletes that you and your coaches, teachers and booster club parents you feel are the most positive and represent well the “7 Definitions of a Positive Athlete” (the 7 definitions are on the Nomination Form).
  2. Every kid that is nominated will be receiving a certificate from Positive Athlete signifying and verifying that they have qualified as a Positive Athlete.  This will be an outstanding award to put on their college applications, summer job applications, and they will join a fraternity of athletes who will receive future benefits coming from Positive Athlete.
  3. Winners of the state-wide award and their nominators will each have the opportunity to meet Greg Jennings and have their photos taken with him at a ceremony in June.

*  Clubs will ask the school principals to forward this official Nomination Form to their coaches, athletic directors, principals, teachers and booster clubs who can submit as many nominations from their school as they would like directly to Positive Athlete via:
nominations-Jennings@celebratepositive.com  The deadline for nominations will be Thursday, May 17, 2012.
*  Also, a part of the ceremony and presentation with Greg Jennings will be a member of the Rotary Club that introduced the program to the school that produced the winning athlete.

*  As an added incentive to help stimulate nominations from their local schools, the top 4 Rotary Clubs that help generate the most nominations from high schools will receive a signed football from Greg Jennings to utilize for fundraising efforts for their clubs.
*  We realize that his program is happening late this Spring, but the idea is to seed the program now so that we can take a full-year run on the 2012-2013 school year program which should grow substantially.

We hope to have 100% participation by each of the clubs this Spring. We believe this program will provide each Rotary Club with incredible “positive” exposure in their community, and will create new opportunities to grow membership in high school Interact programs, and more long-term, Rotaract and Rotary Club memberships.

Please have your Club Presidents or representative feel free to email Scott Pederson with any questions at scott_pederson@celebratepositive.com.

Dreams Do Come True!


Nicholas tends his reforestation nursery.

Julina shown in her woodlot.

Water is drawn from the bottom of the cistern.

The installation of the cistern is a community effort.

 

Nicholas would be the first one to assure you of that!

Nicholas Syano came to Wisconsin with a dream, as a new student at the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point, in 2007.  In 2008, Nicholas received his Masters Degree for Natural Resource Management, and was the first international student to receive the Natural Resources Graduate Student of the Year award!  With the training & encouragement he received at UWSP, the dream grew, sprouted & blossomed into a miracle for his tiny village in Kenya – potable water and reforestation!!

Nicholas Mutuku Syano was born, grew up and still continues to live with his wife & two daughters in Mbunbuni, Africa, in the Makueni district of Kenya.  He has witnessed the natural woodlands of his community be decimated over the years for charcoal which in turn sustains their livelihood.  This practice destroys the habitat and community.  Nearby streams & rivers dry up as the result of desertification caused by deforestation and global warming, during the dry season.  However, the women & children still have to try to gather water from the polluted river bed when it’s not the rainy season, & carry the water on their back in a 5 gallon container with a strap wrapped around their forehead!  They even get up at 4:00am or 5:00am to be first in the long line for water!    

As Nicholas, trained at UWSP,  he began to share the natural resource challenges of Kenya & his small village with members of churches & organizations around Central Wisconsin.  That’s where ROTARY stepped in.  Nicholas gave a presentation about Deforestation to our Wisconsin Rapids Sunrise Rotary Club, & afterward I asked if his village needed a well?  He immediately replied, “Yes, that would give our community HOPE & A FUTURE!!”  After exploring the unsuccessful possibilities of a well, ( with WASRAG, involved in the decision making), we  decided to opt for water-harvesting instead, using the cistern system.  By this time, Nicholas had gone back to his family in Kenya,  joined Rotary, & experimented with the first cistern, at his tiny tin-roofed home.

With fundraisers & a Simplified Matching Grant our Sunrise Club has funded four cisterns with more in the planning stages. Then Wisconsin Rapids Noon Rotary joined us in funding two more cisterns. And, CCR, (a Wisconsin not-for-profit corporation created to assist  Nicholas’ village with water conservation reforestation & education ), has funded ten cisterns! At $1,200.00/ cistern, (with community members doing their own constructing & also each recipient providing a monthly maintenance fee), this worthy project is indeed do-able & affordable!  

If anyone or any Club would be interested in obtaining more information on Nicholas’ village, or on funding a cistern or about installing a cistern yourself, please contact:         Joanne Marshall  715-423-1921  715-459-4212.

We hope you’ll be excited by  the photos of Nicholas’ cistern & reforestation projects and be moved to help!    

 

Those who receive a cistern seem to be pleased.

Community members are pleased and thrilled for each other too!

Waupon Rotary Holds Club Visioning - You Should Too
 

The Waupun Rotary Club held a Visioning in February that turned out to be a very valuable four hours.  Lots of creative ideas were shared which are now breathing new life into our club.  The four facilitators were well trained and really kept our group on task with both respect and humor.  Any club that has not participated in a Visioning is missing out on a wonderful growth experience.

RI News

The Rotarian Magazine

The Rotarian Magazine is our link to the greater Rotary world. The pictures and stories tell us of the wonderful work that is being done, in and through Rotary, to make the world a better, safer and a more peaceful place…all because we are advancing the key elements of social justice, health projects, and educational opportunity and alleviating the dire effects of poverty.

A person is not free if they are hungry. A man is not free when he has to watch his children die because of the lack of clean water or adequate food. A mother will not be free if her sick child cannot receive medical care and when people are not free they will seek social justice even if it means going to war to achieve it.

Our magazine, paid for in our RI dues, is not junk mail. It makes you and me “literate” in the great story of Rotary. Read it. Share it with others. Drop it off in a public area where literature is offered, a dentist's reception area, the waiting room at your local hospital or when you go to your accountant's office to pick up your tax filings. Plant the seeds of Rotary by sharing our great story.

Foundation Reports

Each club in District 6250 has established a foundation goal and the question is how are the clubs going about the achieving those goals? Have each of the clubs done an every member enrollment? Successful clubs take the time to ask each member to make a pledge commitment to the Rotary Foundation. Fulfilling that pledge might involve a quarterly billing by the club secretary/treasurer or participating in the direct deposit transfer from the Rotarians checking account to the RI Foundation account or it might mean a monthly charge to a credit card. Successful clubs establish a process that allows their members to both make and fulfill the commitment.
