KIDS From Wisconsin Rock New Berlin Eisenhower
 
It was an incredible evening as the KIDS brought their high-energy show to the Lohmiller-Sutherland Theater on July 12. With a theme of “Head Out On The Highway,” the KIDS crisscrossed America, paying tribute to cities and the music that made them famous.
 
The "tour" began in Chicago, with the KIDS unleashing a mean version of the Blues Brothers’ “I’m a Soul Man." Next up was Cleveland, home of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. The audience was treated to hits by Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones and Heart.
 
Other featured cities included Nashville, Las Vegas, Hollywood, New York and New Orleans. Individual singers really stood out, including Kennedy Konsitzke as Blondie in “One Way or Another,” and Holly Meyer leading the group in Jefferson Airplane's hit "Don't You Want Somebody to Love."
 
The show-stealer arguably was Matthew Gonyea. Gonyea brought the audience to its feet with his energetic rendition of “My Shot” from the smash Broadway play “Hamilton.” However, Yer Thao also stood out with her soulful version of “She Used To Be Mine” by pop singer Sara Bareilles.
 
Those in attendance included Mark Juds (one of the original KIDS) along with Rotarians Scott Klaas, Audrey Juds (Mark's mother) and Art Angove. For more images, click on "Scenes from club meetings, events 2017" at right.
 
The KIDS wrapped up with the heartwarming "You Will Be Found," a ballad about coming home. It was their tribute to Wisconsin, the KIDS' home base for nearly 50 years now.
 
Just as audiences have come to enjoy the KIDS' concerts, the KIDS themselves discover that the experience leaves a lasting impression. Very typical is this comment from a member of this year's troupe, offered by Executive Director Tina Weiss:
 
“KFW is a professional, beneficial, and useful training for my future because it is my goal to be a performer! More importantly, I want to be part of something bigger that can change people's lives and inspire youth to explore the arts. I also love the community and family KFW provides”
 
This was the Rotary Club of New Berlin’s fourth annual KIDS From Wisconsin concert. We were honored to not only sponsor these amazing performers, but were just as awe struck as everyone else in the theater. If you haven’t seen a KIDS concert yet, you must. You won’t be disappointed.

East meets West in New Berlin
 
By Rotarian Erica Moranski
 
Meet Rotarian Reji Chacko and his wife, Shoba. My husband, Jeff, and I had the distinct pleasure of hosting Reji and Shoba for a week in our home as part of District 6270's 2017 Friendship Exchange. 
 
Reji and Shoba were part of a group of 10 couples from India who visited southeastern Wisconsin in May. All attended the District 6270 Conference, held in Milwaukee. Many of the couples went on to attend the National Convention in Atlanta. Although Reji and Shoba are seasoned travelers, this was their first trip to America. 
 
Reji Chacko is a 30+ year member, past president, and Paul Harris Fellow. Reji belongs to the Rotary Club of Cochin. Founded in 1936, it is the oldest club in District 3201. Cochin is in the State of Kerala, the southernmost state in India. Reji and Shoba are passionate about service, and Rotary is very much part of their daily lives. 
 
A retired business owner, Reji is also an avid sports enthusiast; cricket is his passion. He currently is chairman of the International Fellowship of Cricket Loving Rotarians (IFCR) for district 3201, and has been conducting inter-club cricket tournaments in Rotary for the last 28 years. 
 
Rotary has made a significant impact on the lives of many in India. Polio eradication efforts in India started in 1995, and have had a huge impact on the culture there. Currently India is polio free, much in part due to Rotary’s campaign and immunization support.
 
Service projects for the Rotary Club of Cochin include providing a free meal weekly at a local school, running free eye and dental clinics, providing free heart surgeries, funding plumbing projects in schools, and so much more. Many of its members are Paul Harris Fellows.
 
It was such a pleasure to share our home with this remarkable couple. Reji and Shoba enjoyed all that Milwaukee has to offer. However, one of the highlights of their visit was visiting Rotary, International's headquarters in Evanston, Ill. 
 
We are very excited for our January visit to India to learn much more about Rotary in India as well as experiencing the Indian culture.

Rotary: Doing good all around the world

The Rotary Foundation supports ongoing efforts to eradicate polio (now found in just three countries in the world!), bring clean water and sanitation services to impoverished communities, and build schools and other structures, to name just a few.
 
This video offers just a glimpse of the important work Rotary International does for the needy everywhere.
