Our speaker this week was Emilie Steinman, owner of Oh, Shiny Glass Art in Menasha. But, that's not why we invited her. Emilie was a Rotary Youth Exchange student to Japan in 2003. She brought visual aids and so many moving, emotional and powerful stories from her experiences. The jacket hanging from the podium is covered in pins and memories of her trip. As you can see it is packed full. Also, she presented to our club a flag from her visit to a Japanese Rotary Club.
Part of Rotary International is our Youth Exchange Program. If you are a Menasha student and have any interest in participating in Rotary Youth Exchange, contact Menasha Rotary.
Menasha Rotarians saw the first glimpse of what Jefferson Park may look like in the future. Three concept vision plans depicting a variety of changes to the park were presented to the group on December 25th. Park consultants and City staff have spent several weeks collecting public feedback from various park users of the City’s most popular park. All three plans create more public green space and improved access to the water which follows the City’s Brand Position Statement by providing “the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of natural beauty, relaxation and water recreation”.
Rotarians, and the public can view the three plans and provide comments online by visiting www.saa-madison.com/community-comment/menasha-wi-jefferson-park-vision-plan. Extensive public feedback, including information gathered in over 650 public surveys has guided the planning process so far. In the coming weeks, the three plans will be narrowed down to two. Those two concepts will be developed and discussed at a joint Park Board and Plan Commission meeting on February 14 at 4:30pm in City Hall.
