What's Happening at Marshfield Rotary
 
The Marshfield Rotary Club has been recognized as a ShelterBox HERO for Rotary Year 2023-2024. ShelterBox is a global organization made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right – that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital. Sunrise Rotary has made contributions for many years to the ShelterBox cause of providing shelter and basic needs to people around the world affected by natural disasters and other causes of displacement.
Rotary joins other international agencies in providing immediate relief to disaster survivors through our partnership with ShelterBox and mobilizing our expertise to support long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts.
– Gary C.K. Huang,
   2014-15 Rotary International President
ShelterBox's has provided shelter to 2.2 million people since 2000. For more information, please visit www.shelterboxusa.org
 
James (Jim) D. Murdock, CCP Emeritus joined the club to present the unique topic of "Perfusion During Open Heart Surgery". "A "Perfusionist" is a person, qualified by academic and clinical education, to operate the extracorporeal circulation equipment during any medical situation where it is necessary to support or replace a person's cardiopulmonary, circulatory, or respiratory function." Check out his slide deck for all the amazing technology and terminology related to the field. Caution: there are some photos of surgical operations in the slides.

Self-titled ClubRunner Extraordinaire, Ben Bauer updated the club on some new features in ClubRunner and refreshed the group on some best practices for logging in, updating your information, and how to make sure club emails are being delivered. Check out the slide deck to walk through any of that info at your own pace. As always, feel free to contact Ben if there are any ClubRunner questions.

Kathryn Halverson, Executive Director, American Red Cross North Central Wisconsin Chapter shared a great program with an emphasis on the need for community members to donate blood (good news, you can sign up to donate at our blood drive). The Red Cross offers so many services and different kinds of support from disaster relief to important training. Area organizations are encouraged to reach out to the local Red Cross chapter as they can help with hands-on training and certification for CPR courses.

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.

Marshfield Young Professionals helps connect the new and developing workforce (18-40) and encourages them to interact socially, exchange ideas, share common interests, learn more about the local business community, and engage in the community’s future. Throughout the year we host socials, volunteer opportunities, as well as educational and personal development events. Past events have included a tour of Nasonville Dairy, pot planting class at Mill Creek Gardens, Volunteering at Empty Bowls, and so on.
