Our History

The Fox Cities Morning Rotary Club was initiated under the auspices of the Neenah and Menasha Rotary clubs in 2009. The Fox Cities Morning Rotary Club provides an early-morning option for Valley Rotarians. Our focus will be "Building Community Goodwill."  We will accomplish this by:

  1. Clearly establishing FCMRC as a Service Organization dedicated to building Goodwill in the Fox Cities
  2. Clearly articulating FCMRC/Rotarian Service Above Self philosophy
  3. Promote membership diversity
  4. Establish credibility with community for grants & hands-on service projects which help build community goodwill

Many of the charter members of this club have been involved in Rotary for a number of years. The Neenah-Menasha Rotary Clubs have joined together to raise monies for community betterment, such as building parks, planting roundabouts with flowers, planting trees, building raised gardens for seniors and multiple scholarships for youth. The monies are raised through community-building events, such as Seafood Fest, golf outings and the U2-Wine Tasting event. The members of the FCMRC look forward to continuing with these efforts, as well as discovering new ways of building community goodwill based on the input from our membership.
