HOW OUR MEMBERSHIP WORKS
Membership in a Rotary club is by invitation only. We want to make sure you join a club that best fits your passion and perspective. We can connect you with a club that's right for you and make it easy to get involved and on your way to membership immediately.
- You express interest - Let us know a little about yourself and what you’re looking for in a club. We’ll find the local clubs in your area and let them know you’re interested.
- Rotary matches you with a club - Based on your preferences and interests, Rotary leaders in your community will match you with the local club that fits you best.
- A local club contacts you - A Rotary club member will contact you by email or phone to discuss your interest in Rotary. You’ll be invited to get to know the club better by attending a club meeting, a social event, or even to join in on a service project as a volunteer.
- The club invites you to join - Now that you and a local club have spent some time together and determined that you’re a good fit for each other, you will be invited to join. Each club has its own ways of welcoming new members; they may hold a ceremony for you.
- You’re a member! - Enjoy getting involved in your new club as a Rotary member. Join a committee. Lead a service project. Organize a social event. Lead and contribute to your new club.

MEQUON - Shaffer Development's offer to purchase the land for Spur 16 Mequon has been approved, but the development agreement still needs some work.
Spur 16 Mequon will be the second phase of the city's town center project.
The purchase was approved at the Feb. 14 Mequon Common Council meeting on a 7-1 vote, with Alderman Mark Gierl the only dissenting voice on the council.
According to the amended offer to purchase, the closing of the land will happen on Aug. 1. The first phase – which includes the majority of the residential development at the north end of the site as well as the east-west road with access off Buntrock Avenue, and the north-south road with access off Mequon Road – must be completed by Dec. 31, 2018.
My theory on housework is, if the item doesn’t multiply, smell, catch fire, or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you? ~ Erma Bombeck
Be Vince Lombardi’s nephew
Rotary Club of Denver Southeast
I had a very good relationship with my uncle. We’re from a big Italian family, so we always had Sunday dinners together when we all lived in the New York metro area. He would have a lot of fun teasing all the kids. He would want us to bring our report cards, and he always grilled us if we got anything less than an A. Then he would break into a big laugh and we would realize he was pulling our legs. At the same time, he always admonished us to do well in school, because he started as a teacher and education was big in our family.
Calling all Rotarians!
We are partnering with Family Sharing of Ozaukee County to collect non-perishable food items through the month of February.
Family Sharing provides food, at no charge, to people in need in Ozaukee County. All donations of food are distributed directly to those who need it. Their supply is at a critical low this time of year, and we’d like to help support their efforts in collecting items.
Please bring your food donations to our Friday meetings.
Thanks for your support!
