Rotary Club of New Berlin, New Berlin Rotary Dealing a mystery of Old West proportions
 
It was a rowdy time at the Deadwood Saloon (aka New Berlin Banquet Center) Saturday night. Poor Mitch Maverick ate some lead right after winning $100,000 in the annual poker tournament. But who dunit? That was the task for the record 175+ people in attendance. After enjoying a hearty buffet dinner, attendees hunkered down to figure out this ace high mystery.
 
We're still tallying the results, but we can say that this was our largest turnout to date. A hearty 'thank you' to all the donors, sponsors and guests. This would not have been a success without your support. And, of course, a tip of the 10 gallon hat to all the Rotarians who chipped in. It was an incredible night.
 
More details to come. Meantime, feel free to check out other images from the event. Hover over or click on each to read its caption.

A hearty "thank you" from the Police Department
 
Since 2011, Rotary Club of New Berlin has donated more than $4,500 to the New Berlin Police Department. These funds were used to support the department's Midnight Volleyball program. We're very happy and excited to help that valuable cause.
 
In recognition of this, on January 11, Police Officer (and School Resource Officer) Christopher Bayley presented a plaque to club president Pat McLaughlin. "We are proud and honored to be a part of the program," McLaughlin said, "and we look forward to working together in the future."
 
During this meeting we decided to also support the Police Department's Midnight Basketball program. (Each program will receive $500 from the club.) Bayley and McLaughlin show off this year's Midnight Basketball and Midnight Volleyball t-shirts. These are handed out to participating youth.

Rotary  Club of New Berlin, New Berlin Rotary, New Berlin Food PantryHelping out at the food pantry
 
Rotarians and New Berlin National Honor Society students lend a hand for a good cause on Saturday, Dec. 3. For two hours that morning, volunteers sorted and stacked food collected by residents of New Berlin's Weatherstone subdivision. The collection filled 19.5 barrels, totaling an estimated 5,580 pounds. Almost all was food, but a number of personal care items were donated as well. The Weathstone drive, held in December, has been taking place for more than 30 years.
 
In addition to the Weatherstone collection, members of New Berlin West's National Honor Society chipped in with their donation. According to Anna, a senior at West, each Honor Society member received one Society point for each item donated. Some students donated 10 items, she said. The collection, held in November, netted 301 items. This was the first year for their collection. "We'll try to make it an annual event," Anna said. Eight Honor Society members helped out at the food pantry on Saturday.

The first step is to check the expiration date. Any food item more than six months beyond expiration must be discarded. Items are then shelved by type and expiration year. The New Berlin food pantry serves 132 families each month; this collection is expected to last into February.

This is the fourth consecutive year our club has assisted with the project. The Weatherstone collection is the second largest for the food pantry. Even larger is the annual postal service collection, held in May.

A time to celebrate the holidays
 
Rotary Club of New Berlin participated in the city's Christmas parade, held in the afternoon of Dec. 3. Our float touted Rotary's water-related efforts in impoverished communities around the world. While walking the route, we provided candy to many of the youngsters we encountered. A hearty 'thank you' to Rotarians Kathy and Mike Erickson. They constructed the float, and lent their trailer and pickup truck. Costco of New Berlin provided nine cases of bottled water for the display. That water will be donated to New Berlin Police Department's Midnight Basketball program.
