Getting ready for World Affairs Seminar
Three very enthusiastic student-candidates to Rotary's World Affairs Seminar visited us on April 28 to share their thoughts.

Representing New Berlin Eisenhower are Nathan and Drisya. Illsia and Madeline from New Berlin West round out the four student-candidates attending WAS.
All the students are excited to attend WAS. Nathan loves science and is particularly interested in how water and science tie together. He wants to know what can be done to protect this precious resource. Drisya is excited to absorb what she learns and pass on the valuable information to peers and others. Illsia is looking forward to meeting other students and working on the various projects. (Madeline was unable to attend our meeting.) Our club is sponsoring two students; the school district will sponsor the other two.
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 21 - July 1, is "Water: A Global Resource to Share and Protect." This is the fourth year that our club has sponsored students to WAS.
The students will be invited back after the program to discuss their experiences. We wish them well.
Also during this meeting, Tina Weiss, Executive Director of KIDS From Wisconsin, provided an update on this year's concerts.
The KIDS will perform 70 shows this summer. There was such an overwhelming demand for performances, Weiss says, that they had to turn away 12 show-holder applicants. Rotary Club of New Berlin is once again hosting a show. Our concert will take place at New Berlin West on Friday, Aug. 19. Ross Spadaro from New Berlin and Emily Watt of Waukesha will be the show's "local" KIDS. Music selection will include Penatonics, Swing Jump & Jive, current hits and a tribute to Stevie Wonder.
Tickets will be available for purchase on our website soon.
