The Four-Way Test
Of the things we think,
say or do:
1) Is it the TRUTH?
2) Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3) Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4) Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
We'd love to hear from you!

Gearing up for the big performance
Members of the Rotary Club of New Berlin greet guests prior to the KIDS From Wisconsin concert on Aug. 22.
Approximately 400 people attended the show, held at New Berlin West High School. During their 90-minute performance, the talented KIDS sang, danced and played their way through a variety of genres and eras. They paid tribute to Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, the Swing era, a Tony Award-winning play, and contemporary artists.
We are still tallying the results, but all involved agreed that this concert was a success. We'd like to thank the sponsors, advertisers and attendees for making this, our first KIDS From Wisconsin concert, a memorable event and one we will build on in future years.
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.
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.
