President's Note
Hello. My name is George Brownell, current President of the Fox Cities Morning Rotary Club. As a Rotarian since the late ’09, and a member of this club since inception, I’m delighted you are visiting our site.
Our vibrant club has wonderful members from a variety of backgrounds and interests.  As a result, we’ve established a motto that embraces our club’s culture, interests and purpose; namely, collaborate, connect and community service.  Whether through community service projects, exposure to leadership development opportunities, fundraising efforts, providing grants, youth mentoring opportunities or fellowship, this club affords people an opportunity to give so much more than they could alone, while helping to develop its members into even more proud members of this wonderful community.
I am personally humbled by the positive, lasting impact that our people are making in the area and proud of the incredible example they set to the rest of the community and their own families. We are a diverse, energetic, dedicated group of individuals that will continue to come together as a team to ‘Make a Difference’, both locally and around the World. If you’d like to get to know our people, see them in action and/or learn more about how you too can make a difference, take a peek at our program calendar and join us at an upcoming meeting or event! Hope to see you soon.

A great session on Tuesday.  We learned from Amy Wiernik, Executive for Educating, Learning for Life how high school students can experience various professional occupations first hand.
In an effort to give back to the community, Strike Out Cancer Day was founded by Sarah-Beth Janssen in 2005. Thanks to the Timber Rattlers, many additional sponsors and our team of volunteers, we provide local families battling pediatric cancer a day to forget about fighting their disease, relax as a family and find support from other families in attendance. As the event has grown so have our fundraising efforts. Because of this we've established the fund to assist local families in need.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
