Rotary Club of Portage, Wisconsin


Upcoming Meeting Changes: 
There will be NO MEETING on Monday, May 28.  In observance of Memorial Day, we will not have a meeting. Instead, thank a veteran for his/her service. There is a Memorial Day Parade beginning at 10:30am along Slifer Street and ending at Blue Star Park. There will be a ceremony to follow with a luncheon hosted at the VFW following the ceremony.   
Our Gavel Exchange will take place on Monday, June 25.  The regular noon hour meeting will take place at NorthShore Restaurant at the Portage Golf Club instead of Dino's. The meeting will be from the regular 12noon-1:00pm and we will still have Happy Bucks at this meeting. We will thank Cory Otto for his year of service and welcome Rich Jacobson as our new President for 2018-2019.
Evening Social will be held on Monday, July 30. This is the 5th Monday of the Month. We will not have a noon meeting at Dinos, but will gather together after 5pm for a social. This is a great time to bring potential members to show them what Rotary is all about.

5th Meeting of the Month
This year, we are trying something different!  
When there are 5 Monday's in the month, we will be holding a night meeting/social instead of the meeting at noon for that week.  Your quarterly dues will cover the food expenses, as they would at the Monday noon meeting.  You may bring your spouse/significant other or a potential member! 
Mark your calendars for the night meeting instead of the noon meeting on Monday: 
 July 30
October 29, December 31 (omit due to holiday)

- Portage Area Snack Pack Program -
Our Portage Rotary Club Portage Rotary Club received a matching grant from our District 6250 to help bring $5,000 more dollars to the Weekend Snack Packs program which provides snacking foods for the weekend to students living with food insecurity.  Since our interest in helping this local cause, many others have also stepped forward to aid in this project.  
If you are interested in helping pack these snacks... it is scheduled every Thursday evening starting at 5:30 at the Odd Fellows Lodge located at 306 E Carroll Street in Portage.  We encourage at least one Rotarian to be present each week.  
* Please note- with the holidays and special breaks from school, please see the "Portage WI Weekend Packs" posts on facebook to see when the schedule changes happen.
