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.
Talking up Rotary
Club members enjoyed talking with guests of all ages during New Berlin's Community Fair, March 20-21. The event, held at New Berlin Eisenhower Middle/High School, featured dozens of businesses and organizations from New Berlin and surrounding communities.
This was the second annual community fair, a joint venture between the New Berlin Chamber of Commerce and the School District of New Berlin. Pictured here a club members Tom Fuszard, Olivia Kelley and Dianne Moore. Also assisting with this presentation were Rotarians Bob Schaefer, Shawn Shnabl and Stephanie Friemoth.
Other images from the fair, as well as from our meetings, can be found in our library of images.
In addition to participating in the Community Fair, Rotary Club of New Berlin hosted a forum for school board candidates. That was held in the Eisenhower's library on Saturday. Rotarians Audrey Juds, Scott Klaas (club president) and Dianne Moore coordinated that.
We're already looking forward to New Berlin's 2016 Community Fair. Why? We have a secret in store for guests. Make sure you visit our booth next year!
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.
