We've had a busy few weeks at the Elmbrook Rotary Club, initiating a new member and celebrating 3 Red Badge recipients. 
The Red Badge is recognition of new members completing their training to be a strong Rotarian. This involves joining a board meeting, being involved in a service project, and taking part in a Fireside chat, etc. etc. 
Ian Smith, Don Black, and Rick Chabot have all completed their requirements, and will hopefully soon find a committee that speaks to them. Mark Thurner & John Allen are seen aiding in the graduation. 
The Elmbrook Rotary also inducted John Schindler, referred by Jackson Bubolz, into our club. John has been a land surveyor, a flight EMT, and currently focuses on residential realty. He is married to Jean, and currently holds office on the board of trustees in Elm Grove.
Our club also took time to discuss our areas for growth as we continue to grow membership and put more energy into Spikes. Those conversations are kept to our breakfast meetings, but the exciting part is we're all working together to consistently have a positive impact on our community and our world. 
Welcome to our new member, and our Red Badge graduates!
