Erica Moranski, Stephanie Friemoth, Shawn Schnabl, New Berlin Food Pantry, Rotary Club of New Berlin, New Berlin Rotary Sorting food for the needy
Erica Moranski, our newest member, joins Stephanie Friemoth and club president Shawn Schnabl at the New Berlin Food Pantry on Dec. 5. They assisted dozens of other volunteers in sorting and shelving hundreds of pounds of food items collected by the Weatherstone subdivision in New Berlin.
Brainchild of former homeowners association president (and now alderman) Dennis Horbinski, Weatherstone residents have been collecting and donating food for more than 30 years. This is the third time members of the Rotary Club of New Berlin assisted with this project.
Each item is reviewed to ensure it is not past its safe date, then shelved by type and expiration date. Each Wednesday, the New Berlin Food Pantry serves dozens of needy residents of Brookfield, Elm Grove and New Berlin.

Spreading the holiday cheer
Dec. 5 was also the date of New Berlin's Christmas parade. Several Rotarians and high school students participated. The weather was more comfortable than in years past. Participants handed out candy to the excited children (and some parents!) lining National Avenue.
