Each year, the Menasha Rotary Club awards four $750 scholarships to graduating seniors who reside within the Menasha Joint School District. This is offered to students from Menasha High School and St. Mary Catholic High School. These scholarships are awarded to students who have demonstrated concern for their community through activities, service projects, volunteering or other activities.

For more information you can contact:

Lauren Schultz at Menasha High School or Christine Hall at St. Mary's High School

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.

The 14th annual Rotary Classic Golf Scramble is hosted by the Neenah, Menasha and Fox Cities Morning Rotary Clubs.  All proceeds benefit area youth and local and international service projects.




Local poet Karla Huston visited our noon luncheon last week and shared a bit about poetry and how the arts are or are not being supported in Wisconsin.  She shared several of her poems with us as well and I can surely speak for the group that we enjoyed them thoroughly.  Her poems provided some fantastic mental pictures as she read them and most were tied to simple everyday experiences or to something we in the Fox Cities are familiar with.  We were thrilled to have her and welcome her back anytime.  You can take a look at her website here:  Karla Huston - Poet
