Congratulations to Bruce Swanwick 2015-16 La Crosse Downtown Rotarian of the Year. Bruce was recognized at our meeting last week.  He will also be recognized at our Avenues of Service Dinner on August 16th.
 
Bruce was nominated by a number of Rotarians and they stated....Bruce is currently our Club Secretary and Chair of our Social Committee.  Every week Bruce is at our meetings at 10:15 setting up and helps to clean up after the meeting.  He is "johnny on the spot" always helping everyone.  Bruce also transports some of our senior members to the meetings. He is always upbeat and greets everyone with a smile and hand shake and lives the Four Way Test.  This year he was involved in raising funds for Coulee Region RSVP, Smarter than a Fifth Grader.  He was involved in our Fruit Basket Fundraiser by visiting every Rotary Club in the area twice to promote the sale of our baskets.   He is actively involved in our Club Social activities and is present at every event...he helped organize the bus to Caledonia for the Avenues of Service Dinner.  He is a good cheerleader for our club and these social events,   Bruce is the perfect selection for our 2015-16 Rotarian of the Year!!!
 
 
 
 
Arch Klumph’s idea for an endowment fund dedicated to “doing good in the world” planted the seed for The Rotary Foundation in 1917. Thanks to his vision and staunch advocacy, and the extraordinary generosity of Rotary members worldwide, that fund has become one of the world’s leading humanitarian foundations.

Learn about the people and events that have made our Foundation a powerful force for good. That one idea and an initial contribution of $26.50 set in motion a powerful force for good that has transformed millions of lives around the globe. View the timeline of the history of the development of what is now the Rotary Foundation.

A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...
