Thought of the Week

Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance. - George Bernard Shaw

Member Spotlight - Dave Schlageter

Dave and Laura at the Vatnajokull Ice Cap in Iceland 

I was born in Chicago and raised in Evanston Illinois. My father was a psychiatrist at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and he was an associate professor of Medicine at Northwestern. My mother worked part time as a travel agent. I had three brothers one passed away 10 years ago.

My wife and I have been married for 36 years we knew each other in high school but did not start dating until we both graduated from college. Her father was my swim coach and a Michigan grad like me. We have two children Anne and Will.  Anne is at home working several jobs in the golf arena and my son Will is working at the Jefferson Hotel in Washington DC. He gets to interact with the Washington elite.

In the last ten years my wife and I have done several spectacular trips and I would recommend them to everyone.  New Zealand with our kids is great for the scenery, outdoor activities and the people. A trip to the Galapagos islands allows you to be up close and personal with marine life including seals, penguins, sharks and manta rays. You can literarily stand with feet of multiple breeds of birds without spoking them. And the last trip to Iceland is awesome for its magnificent water falls, birds and volcanoes including an active one. All should be on your bucket list.

And the Winner Is ... Not Us ☹️

By Samuel Azinger in the T-M Noon Club Newsletter

The annual competition results are in and we WON!

Each year the morning club and the noon club have a friendly competition around who can raise more money for the RI Foundation.

In 2020 we, as the noon club, raised more money and the coveted trophy was relinquished by the morning club at the last lunch meeting.

Rotarians are doers. As Rotary’s vision statement proclaims, they want to live in “a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change.” That’s why they joined Rotary, and that’s why they stay. They want to be engaged.

So how can your club ensure it is providing sustained engagement for its members? On the following pages you will meet seven Rotary clubs and see how they do it. In Texas, the Rotary Club of Plano West has gone all in on community service. And the recently chartered Rotary Club of Network for Empowering Women, with members in multiple U.S. states and several countries, has great advice for involving new members. Finally, leave it to Rotary’s first five clubs to concoct a collaborative endeavor that is connecting current members in creative ways. Collectively, these clubs provide a model for how Rotarians can engage with the rich traditions of the past, the challenging conditions of the present, and our hope-filled expectations for the future.

First five collaborative

In 1913, on a Saturday in July, more than 100 men gathered in downtown L.A. and prepared to board the train that would carry them to the city’s harbor. Members of the Rotary Club of Los Angeles were planning to visit the recently chartered Rotary Club of San Diego, and spirits were high. Some men were clad in the ornate uniforms of a marching band, some vamped it up as vaudevillians, and still others were dressed as policemen with comically large badges.

TM Lions Club
TM Lions Club

In 1950, the Thiensville-Mequon Lions Club received its charter from Lions Club International.  Lions are the largest service organization in the world, with over 46,000 clubs and over 1.35 million members. The Lions motto is “We Serve”, with an emphasis on improving the quality of life for people with visual and hearing impairments and other special needs.  The Thiensville-Mequon Club has over 60 members, representing a wide variety of ages, backgrounds and occupations.  A common thread among all is the desire to donate back to the community and help those who are less fortunate.

The T-M Lions club serves in 2 ways: by doing local service projects, and by donating to a wide variety of charities.  Service projects include the semi-annual cleanup of a one mile stretch of Wauwatosa Road, screening grade school level students for eye exams, and helping the Leukemia-Lymphoma organization with parking for their annual Scenic Shore Bike Ride.  Charitable donations are made to numerous local charitable and community causes, as well as to Lions specific projects such as Leader Dogs for the Blind, Wisconsin Lions Camp and Eye Bank project,  just to name a few. Each year for the past 23 years, the T-M Lions have donated an average of $40,000. The donations are distributed to over 50 different organizations.

Monies for donations are generated from community fundraisers like Lionfest, Golf Outing, participation at the Taste of Mequon, and most recently Applefest. Administrative costs to run the club are paid by member dues.  All fundraiser labor is provided by club members, family, and other volunteers.  Therefore, 100% of the fundraiser proceeds are donated to charities.

The club meets twice a month, with board meetings held on the 1st Tuesday and general meetings on the 3rd Tuesday.
