The March Rotarian Magazine featured a series of articles, "Why Climate Change is Rotary's Business and What Rotarians are Already Doing About It".

Rotarians understand that the whole world is their backyard. They can see the effects of climate change in communities they care about, and they haven’t waited to take action. They’re tackling the problem the way they always do: coming up with projects, using their connections to change policy — and planning for the future.

You are invited to read the Rotary International publication The Rotarian series to see:

 
  • Have you joined a Fellowship yet? 
  • Don't know what they are? Awesome way to connect Internationally and locally with other Rotarians who share your interests or hobbies.
Rotary Fellowships are independent, social groups that share a common passion. Being part of a fellowship is a fun way to make friends around the world.
How do I join a fellowship?

Fellowships are open to Rotarians, family members, and program participants and alumni. You can contact a fellowship directly by using the information listed in the Rotary Fellowships directory. Or search our discussion groups to find Rotary and Rotaract members with similar interests.

How do I form a fellowship?

Start by finding others who share you interest.

Be sure you meet the criteria for a fellowship and apply for official recognition.

Did you know that our District now has a new Fellowship?  Rotary Means Business - this was taken from the District 6270 home page - 

"District 6270 has now officially become the first Rotary district in Wisconsin to be chartered under the Rotary Means Business Fellowship. Rotary Means Business encourages Rotarians to support the success of their fellow Rotarians by doing business with them, and by referring others to them. I am of the firm belief that the most honorable people to transact business with are people who abide by the 4 Way Test. So, to launch the Rotary Means Business Fellowship, we are planning an event that will be announced soon where Rotarians who are involved in business or interested in business can come to socialize and learn more about how to join the fellowship. We are also working on an Electronic Business Directory (in PDF format) for all Rotarians involved in various businesses to be able to have their businesses listed so that other Rotarians can reach out to them to transact business or refer business to them."

Rotarian and Cycling Fellowship member Angie Rester recently rode in the Penninsula Century Fall Challenge where she ran into the Rotarians from the Rotary Club Door County North who hosted one of the rest stops and fueling stations in the ride that starts and ends in Sister Bay.  Cycling Fellowship members are also able to purchase the Rotary and End Polio jerseys made just for the Fellowship.  Angie is available for presentations to clubs regarding Fellowships.  She serves as the District Fellowship Chair.  Click here to email her your request or questions. 

  • Are you interested in serving on the District Committee for Fellowships? Meetings will be telephonically so you can join the committee from any place in the District.
