Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Welcome to Rotary District 6250!  Our District consists of 60+ Rotary clubs and 3,000 Rotarians in western Wisconsin.  Rotary is the oldest service organization in the world.  Everyday our members work to make the world a better place – in our communities, our country, and around the world.  We also work on ourselves; developing leadership skills and expanding our networks.  If you join a Rotary club, you will find why so many of us agree that Rotary has been among the best decisions we’ve ever made.  Contact us today and we'll help get you started!
If you're a District Rotarian, your District website has the resources to help you learn more about Rotary, to help you keep your club strong and healthy, and to assist you in working with the Rotary Foundation.  You will find our calendar of events; containing of both club and district-wide events.  There is a directory of district leadership to help you track down needed information, and an archive of documents you may need in working on training or projects.

If It was not for Chuck (yes… that one – our past District Governor) it is unlikely I would be a Rotarian.
August is Membership and Extension month.  In District 6250, our Membership Committee thinks every month is August – they are continually focused on helping clubs grow and thrive.  More to come from John Locke and the membership team later.  Be sure to use this valuable district resource to make your club stronger and more vibrant.
Growing a vibrant membership was my entrance into Rotary at a beyond-my-club level.  For three+ years, I was the District Membership Chair. I focused on traveling around our district with my sidekick Joe Ruskey (yup – also a past District Governor) on how strong clubs create a strong Foundation… and vice-versa.  During my travels, I crafted ten tips to attract and retain members. These tips proved effective: our District had growing membership during two of these three years – and the third year was flat.  So If you’re looking to add members to your club, consider taking a page from these 10 tips...
