World Affairs Seminar - What is it and how can a young person in your life benefit from this local, life-changing week-long experience?

Mr. Francis X. Vogel, Executive Director for World Affairs Seminar. 

The World Affairs Seminar (WAS) is a unique interactive educational program for high school students, sponsored by Rotary International District 6270. The week-long experience provides an opportunity for international students from a variety of backgrounds to discuss issues in a non-threatening environment. Since WAS first accepted students in 1977, over 30,000 future world leaders have participated. Many have stayed in touch with the friends they made at WAS, even forming business relationships, political contacts and family friendships.

Join us in person or via Zoom and learn more about this great program!

Pole Joins Rotary on Rotary Club Milwaukee Amigos Rotarian's Recommendation
Early in 2022, Rotary Club Milwaukee Amigos member, Robert Grede, raised money to help Ukrainian refugees fleeing to Poland.
He used the money to buy medical supplies in Vienna and drove them across Eastern Europe to Jaroslaw, Poland, where he was met by members of the Jaroslaw Rotary Club as well as Rotary members from Lviv and Cherkasy, Ukraine, who delivered the supplies to the front lines.
Speaking neither Polish nor Ukrainian, Grede was reliant upon a local high school English teacher, Chris Tuczapski, who served as a guide and interpreter during Grede's time in Poland. The two became friends, and when Grede attended the local Jaroslaw Rotary Club meeting, he nominated Chris to become a member.
This past December 8, Chris Tuczapski became an official member of the Jaroslaw, Poland Rotary Club.

RI president-elect announces 2023-24 presidential theme

Rotary International President-elect R. Gordon R. McInally called for members to capture the world's attention and lead the way toward possibilities far beyond our current expectations.

McInally, a member of the Rotary Club of South Queensferry, West Lothian, Scotland, revealed the 2023-24 presidential theme, Create Hope in the World, during the Rotary International Assembly in Orlando, Florida, USA, on 9 January. He urged members to promote peace in troubled nations, help those affected by conflict, and maintain the momentum of initiatives begun by past leaders.

Watch the theme address

"The goal is to restore hope — to help the world heal from destructive conflicts and, in turn, to help us achieve lasting change for ourselves," McInally said at Rotary's annual training event for incoming district governors.
