A Rotary LOL Moment

Frank & Ernest by Thaves

Member Spotlight - Ryan Walsh

Where were you born, education/degrees or associations/board seats?  I was born in Shorewood, but grew up in Whitefish Bay, WI.  I graduated from UWM with a major in Accounting and Finance.  I later obtained a master's degree in taxation and passed the CPA exam.

What did you want to be when you grew up?  I always wanted to be an architect.

Name of company & position, or your very first job - My very first job was working at Kopp's Frozen Custard, then I mowed the fairways and greens at Brown Deer Golf Course for the Milwaukee County Parks Dept.  I always say that if I no longer needed to work I would go back and mow lawns again!  Currently, I am a public tax accountant at Mitz & Rozansky S.C., a local CPA firm in Glendale.  I specialize in small business and personal accounting and tax compliance.

Family - My wife Carly and I recently moved from Whitefish Bay to Mequon.  Carly is a project manager for an interior designer. We have a golden retriever named Charlie and two beautiful children.  Penny is 4 and attends Donges Bay Elementary and Jack will be 2 in May. My parents still own their house in Whitefish Bay but are spending their winters in Naples, FL.  I have an older brother that lives in San Francisco and an older sister that lives in Boston.

Interests/hobbies/pastimes - I played high school hockey, and still enjoying playing recreationally in various pick up leagues when I have time.  During the warmer months, I love to play golf, fish, and spend time outdoors with my family.  One of my favorite activities is walking the dog while listening to real estate podcasts.

What do you like best about your job?  Meeting with people.  I love sitting down with entrepreneurs and listening to their story.  No client is the same, so it keeps it interesting and I like providing new ideas that will help them.

Most important lesson that you've learned in business?  Honesty is always the best policy.

Most memorable Rotary moment or event?  Cindy's holiday party.  Singing Christmas Carols with everyone is something I will remember forever.

This upcoming Fireside will be at JoAnn’s RE/MAX office at 1339 W. Mequon Rd. We’ll start at 5:30pm and wrap up around 7:00pm.

This orientation will provide a brief history about Rotary and our club. It will provide an open platform for us to answer new members' questions and help them on their Rotary journey with us.

We’ll provide light snacks and beverages. This informative event is open to all members, spouses, significant others, and potential members. For planning purposes please let me know if you will be able to join us.

SURF’s up: Who says Rotary can’t be fun?

ByBrett Morey, chair of Surfers Unite Rotarian Fellowship and past president of the Rotary Club of La Jolla Golden Triangle, California, USA

Have you ever thought of turning a hobby or passion into something even more beneficial through Rotary? I am a third generation Californian and grew up bodyboarding at Huntington Beach and Del Mar, before starting to surf 34 years ago. Back in May, I got this crazy idea to do something with my interest in surfing.

For years, we’ve all heard Rotary leaders talk about making Rotary fun, bringing youth into Rotary, and pushing our membership beyond 1.2 million members worldwide. It struck me, why not create a Rotary Fellowship that generates exciting activities and involves those we mentor through Youth Service programs? If there’s one thing I’ve learned as a member of Rotary, it’s that anything is possible.
