 Amigos de Milwaukee Rotary Club After Hours was awarded a grant in 2015-2016 from Rotary District 6270 to sponsor high school students to a Leadership Camp put on by the Wisconsin Association of School Councils (WASC). Our club provided this opportunity to six sophomores from Cristo Rey High School  -  Milwaukee. 
 
 



 
Our very successful Summit was held in August.  It has led the club to several planning sessions so that we may continue the conversation started on August 22nd.  If you are concerned about Human Trafficking, especially in the greater Milwaukee area, please join us to help give direction that we might collectively make a difference as Amigos Rotarians and in partnership with others. Watch for information regarding our January 2017 program.

Brief History of Rotary in our District

William Zimmers from Milwaukee was the first District Governor and in 1957, the district was restructured under the tenure of District Governor George Markham Jr. to become Rotary District 627 and this included many of the cities and towns that remain in the district today. Then in 1991, under the tenure of District Governor Frederick Luedke, it was renumbered to District 6270.

Women were admitted for Rotary membership in the United States in 1987 and in 1998, we were honored to have Angela Rester Samse as the district’s first female District Governor.  Angie also started the Rotary Club Amigos de Milwaukee, the first Latino focused club in the District.

As Rotarians, we volunteer our time and talent to further the Rotary motto of "Service Above Self" in order to make a positive impact on our communities and the world.

The oldest club in the present district is the Rotary Club of Milwaukee.

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and in particular, to encourage and foster:

  • The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service
  • High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to service society;
  • The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
  • The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
