What's Happening at Marshfield Rotary

Mainstreet Marshfield is hoping to partner with Marshfield Rotary and District 6250 on a matching grant for the National Fitness Campaign (NFC). NFC operates on a mission to build healthy communities across America in partnership with the country's largest healthcare providers. Founded in 1979, NFC has been helping people live more active and healthy lives across the country for over 40 years, and has evolved into America's largest public-private partnership in support of outdoor wellness.

NFC develops partnerships with municipalities, schools and other organizations nationwide to fund, build, promote and activate a comprehensive community wellness campaign, based around the Fitness Court, the world's best outdoor gym designed for free use by any one at any age and fitness level. In addition to the Fitness Court, the campaign delivers healthy city design and consulting services, grant funding, digital programming and tools, ambassador resources, and public relations initiatives to encourage Americans everywhere to walk, jog, cycle, and exercise more outdoors every day.

Our proposal requests $5,000 in funding from the Clubs to be matched with our $5,000 and then by the District to obtain support for completion of the project. We have already received grant funding of $55,000 towards the $180,000 completion costs, which have been outlined in the proposal. We appreciate you taking an interest in supporting the health and wellbeing of community members of all ages through this exciting program. Questions? Want to get involved? Contact Marsha Bushman at 715.650.1578.

Danielle & Al Nystrom joined the club this morning to present some info and opportunities for Season 18 of Rotary Winter Wonderland.  The final slide of the Powerpoint Danielle shared has some items that she could use some assistance with for this season. Here is a document with a description of those roles.

We will meet at Wildwood Park & Zoo in the Ludwig building on October 12th at Noon. We'll get a "tour" and an example of some of the work that needs to be done from hanging lights to organizing the Ludwig building for operations. If you're interested in any volunteer role, or know someone who is, please email volunteerrww@gmail.com.

Linda Roehrborn joined Sunrise Rotary this morning to share information about her business, Discovery Education Station. She created it to share her passion for Planet Earth through environmental, science, technology, engineering, art, agriculture and math education and the promotion of responsible stewardship and healthy living. Linda brought some guests to help share the story of all the great programs, camps education and events that Discovery provides for all ages. Check out her slide deck to learn more about the business. To find out more, including info about upcoming classes and activities, check out their facebook page. Thanks for joining us Linda!

We welcomed former Rotarian Marsha Bushman for her presentation about Wildflower Health. Marsha shared some impactful stories about how Wildflower is helping deliver personalized experiences that activate women in their own care, while simplifying the healthcare journey for families with a modular model of human touch and digital tools. Their platform provides personalized support, education, and resources to enhance maternal and child health outcomes. Check out the rest of Marsha's presentation here.

Linda DeVetter-Dearborn, the daughter of our very own Roberta DeVetter presented on an interesting topic: Neurodiversity, the idea that all brains are different (and that's okay!). Jam packed with lots of information about autism, using labels, masking, and how to accommodate and support all kinds of people - if you missed this week's meeting, you missed out! Fear not! You can check out her slide deck and get a lot of great information. Thanks for joining us Linda!

This week Darla Leick presented a program on how Rotarians can utilize Rotary programs and contacts to access safe and exciting international travel.  Topics included Rotary Friendship Exchange, Rotary’s International Travel & Hosting Fellowship, and how she made contact with a Rotarian from Kathmandu, Nepal who assisted her in her personal travel plans that included guided sightseeing, trekking in the Annapurna region, and a safari in Chitwan National Park.  Mary Treichel also had wonderful things to say about her experience assisting with hosting the Chileans on the recent Rotary Friendship Exchange and encouraged the club to host if a future opportunity becomes available.  The PowerPoint is available here and feel free to get in touch with Darla if you have questions or just want to talk travel!
