WAS students share their experiences
Student-delegates to this year's World Affairs Seminar visited our meeting on July 23 to discuss their experiences and the impact this program had on them.
World Affairs Seminar is an initiative of Rotary District 6270, which comprises most of the clubs in Wisconsin. The mission of WAS is to build global leaders and citizens through an international seminar with an innovative, rigorous program.
An annual event, World Affairs Seminar brings together students from more than 20 countries. The program is held at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wis. The theme for this year's event, which ran June 21-27, was "World Health: Issues and Responsibilities."
Pictured are David B., a student at New Berlin Eisenhower, along with Dmitri B. and Austin P., who attend New Berlin West. The fourth WAS student-delegate, Eisenhower student Brandon E., was unable to attend.
World Affairs Seminar had a positive impact the student-delegates. Each came away thinking more about how he could help others. One student commented how the program gave him "a lot of time to think; a lot of time to listen; a lot of time to learn." Another mentioned that the presentation on polio inspired him to help out.
All expressed an interest in helping the Rotary Club of New Berlin establish an Interact Club in the high schools. Our club was proud to partner with the School District of New Berlin in sponsoring students to this year's World Affairs Seminar.
Serving up for a good cause
Rotarians Stephanie Friemoth and Bob Schaefer prepare to cook hamburgers and hot dogs for the Midnight Volleyball game on July 21.
Hosted by the New Berlin Police Department, Midnight Volleyball (which actually runs from 8:00 - 10:00 p.m.) is held Monday evenings at Malone Park throughout the summer. The games offer area high school kids a safe and healthy evening of activity. At its peak, the games draw more than 100 kids in friendly but very competitive games of volleyball.
Rotary Club of New Berlin is proud to donate $1,000 to this year's program. In addition, Rotarians volunteer to cook during three of the games; this was the latest example of Rotarians helping out.
Rotary: Doing good all around the world
The Rotary Foundation supports ongoing efforts to eradicate polio (now found in just three countries in the world!), bring clean water and sanitation services to impoverished communities, and build schools and other structures, to name just a few.
This video offers just a glimpse of the important work Rotary International does for the needy everywhere.
