Elmbrook Rotary Club News
 

On Saturday, June 1, Elmbrook Rotary Club will hold our 32nd annual “Spikes For Tykes Volleyball Spiketacular” at Mitchell Park in Brookfield. The day is sure to be filled with a whole lot of fun, with lots of food and drink and Rotary fellowship! 

Spikes has been a big success for over 31 years because of the generosity and involvement of businesses, individuals, students, and Rotarians that have helped raise over $750,000 since it began. Last year, we had over 40 playing teams and over 100 sponsors who donated their time, talents, and athleticism. We are proud to announce that in 2018  we reached our goal of $50,000 that will be going directly to worthy causes and programs in Brookfield, Elm Grove, and throughout Southeast Wisconsin and the world. If you intend to donate or take part in Spikes this year, we THANK YOU for helping to make this one-day event an impact for a lifetime.

This year's Event Chairperson, Elmbrook Rotarian Mike Hogan, thanks everyone for your past donations and is looking for your support in our 32nd year of Spikes. Together, we will continue to make Spikes bigger and better than ever! Hope to see you in June!

Classification talks are a chance to know the people you meet with on Friday mornings, and serve with throughout the year, a little better. Several meetings a year, we take time to learn more about members, their life stories and ambitions, and what brings us all together via Rotary.
In the past several months six ERC members provided classification talks. Click on "Read more..." to learn more about them.
 
Remember to join ERC each Friday morning at the Western Racquet Club if you're looking for a powerful group of people with whom to network.
 
 
Ciara McHugh, the 2018-2019 Global Grant Scholar from RI District 6270, began her PhD. program at Queens University in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in September 2018. She describes her program with these words:  "Over the next few years, through the support of LINCS (Leverhulme Interdisiplinary Network for Cyber Security) and The Rotary Foundation's Global Grant Scholarship, I'll be exploring how police and communities interact around the world. I'm interested in looking at tensions between minority groups and police forces, and how we might rethink relationships between the two." ERC is the local Rotary liaison for Ciara during her Global Grant Scholarship, and ERC member Marie Owens is her contact. In addition, ERC member Larry Myers is on the RI District 6270 Scholarships Committee and guided Ciara through the TRF application process. She maintains a most interesting blog.

The Western Racquet Club has recently increased the breakfast fee to $16 USD per person, up from $15 USD. This is due to increase costs associated with the food and the preparation of it.
 
As such, the Rotary Club of Elmbrook will increase the cost of breakfast to $16 USD per person. This new cost will be implemented on the 1st of April, 2019.
The Elmbrook Rotary Club Vision Team for 2019 returned from Antigua, Guatemala a few weeks ago after a week of service with Common Hope, Inc., a St. Paul, MN based Non-Profit organization which has spent the last 30 years improving lives with education, healthcare, housing, and social services.
Kevin Roche, Kate Bloomberg, Tom Hochuli, Dan Roads, Wally Smanksi and Mark Thurner met RI President Barry Rassin at Milwaukee Downtown Rotary Club as he spoke about the impact Rotarians service is having around the world.
At our meeting last week, we announced that Mark Mirsberger, CEO of Dana Investment Advisors is the recipient of our Business Person of the Year Award. The program recognizes the leadership and accomplishments of a successful Brookfield or Elm Grove individual.
