What Is Rotary - Week 24, Maureen O'Leary-Guth
What is Rotary To Me?
By Maureen O’Leary-Guth
To me, Rotary is service, friendship and fun. Rotary is how I show my employees how our business can serve our community. Rotary is how I show my children how we can better our world. Anywhere Rotary gathers is a place I know I will always find a friend. Rotary connects me to the events in our local community. Rotary provides countless opportunities to serve in fun ways.  Our motto may be “Service Above Self”, but somehow, I myself have been enriched beyond measure through my time with Rotary.  
What Is Rotary - Week 25, Jim Ott
What is Rotary-Jim Ott
Until about 16 years ago my main interaction with Rotary was as an occasional speaker at an area club relating my experience as a meteorologist at Today’s TMJ 4.  I was always aware of the important service that Rotary clubs provided to their local communities, but my usual weekday work hours of 3am to noon made joining a club impractical.
That changed in 2006 when I was running for a seat in the Wisconsin State Assembly and Brian Monroe invited me to join the morning club.  I remained a member until 2012, when a member of the noon club asked if I would like to move to our club.  While both clubs have terrific members and do great work on the many projects they are involved in, it was the fact that I much more enjoy a meal at noon than at 7am that convinced me to move.
The weekly meetings are enjoyable, and we have had some tremendous speakers over the years.  That alone, and the camaraderie and friendship would make the Rotary experience well worthwhile.  But the main reason I remain a member of Rotary is to be a part of many wonderful projects that the club sponsors and supports both in our communities of Mequon and Thiensville and beyond.
Our motto of “Service above Self” is played out in so many ways, and impacts many lives, some in ways we will never know.

Father's Day 
I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments when they aren’t trying to teach us.
We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.
