Supporting those who protect us
We received in interesting education in the New Berlin Police Citizens Academy Alumni Association during our April 8 meeting. Representing the association were president Stephanie Brown, Treasurer Jerry Vogel and (seated between them) board member Bernie Kramer.
Founded in 2011, the association is open to all alumni of the New Berlin Police Department's Citizens Academy. As Stephanie Brown explains, the academy is a free, 11-week course that exposes citizens to all phases of law enforcement work. "[The course] is designed to give people a better understanding of what the police department does."
Each session focuses on a separate area of law enforcement. Subjects include crime scene investigation, drug investigations, patrol procedures, and firearms fundamentals, among others. Students also get to ride along with an officer during a shift. The ride is especially valuable, Stephanie says, because students "get to see firsthand that [the police officers] are just like you and me." The course is open to adults who live or work in New Berlin.
Graduates are welcome to join the alumni association. Dues are $10.00 per year. In addition to quarterly membership meetings, the association hosts several fundraisers throughout the year. Since starting in 2011, the association has donated $32,000 to the police department. Those funds have gone toward a variety of projects, including:
- Quick Clot Medical kits for each officer
- Tables, chairs and lectern for a new training room
- A SWAT team shield
- Custom lockers for the SWAT team
- Three pieces of exercise equipment for the department's gym
For more information on the citizens academy or the alumni association, call 414-425-4997.
Also during this meeting, Mark Juds, a board member of  KIDS From Wisconsin, requested raffle items for the KIDS' premier show on June 24. The raffle with raise funds for the group's outreach efforts. KIDS alumni mentor students interested in music. If you'd like to donate an item or have a question, call 414-266-7067.
Mark, son of Rotarian Audrey Juds, is a KIDS alumnus. He played the trombone during their 1969 season.
Introducing the World Affairs Seminar students
Four New Berlin students headed to the World Affairs Seminar in June visited us on March 25. Our club is proud to again sponsor two New Berlin high school students to that prestigious event. (The School District of New Berlin sponsors the other two.) Pictured are Margaret C. and Megan W. from New Berlin Eisenhower and Manisha V. and Pranay V. from New Berlin West.
World Affairs Seminar is an initiative of Rotary District 6270, which comprises most of the clubs in Wisconsin. These events are designed to create global leaders and citizens through an international seminar with an innovative, rigorous program. The course is held at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wis., and involves high school students from across the US and around the world. The theme for this year's program, which runs June 20-26, is "Global Energy: Who's Got The Power?"
All the students are juniors. Each spoke about what to expect from the seminar.
Margaret: Her favorite subjects are Spanish and Geography, so she's looking forward to meeting students from other countries. Hopes to learn from them and bring ideas back with her.
Megan: The topic is appropriate. Her interest is energy, and is planning a career in environmental energy.
Manisha: Interested in meeting students from around the US and other parts of the world. Hopes to bring some lessons back to the community.
Pranay: Also looking forward to meeting other students. Hopes to learn more about alternative power sources, a keen interest of his.
These students will return on July 22 to discuss what impact the seminar had on them. We wish them the best.

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.
