2017 Oconomowoc Rotary Independence Day Parade!

2017 Oconomowoc Rotary Independence Day Parade Saturday, July 1 beginning at 4 p.m. Roosevelt to Fowler Park. The Oconomowoc Rotary Foundation voted to chip in $2,500 to help fund the parade. In true Rotarian fashion, several Rotarians stepped forward to offer funds toward sponsorships. Dr. Zach announced sponsorships had declined this year. Let’s be sure to help out this dynamic force organizing the parade! Parade Marshalls are Veterans Memorial Park advocates Kurt Schrang and Mac Dorn. New President Sarah and her family will be riding in the parade!

OHS counselor Susan Verhagen said she has witnessed Olow grow from an “intimidated, insecure student to a confident and caring young man.” “He’s served an amazing role as a student and as a person.” Olow will attend UW-Whitewater for a business degree this fall. “He will continue to make amazing strides…We can’t wait to see what he achieves in the future.” Rotary honors students who have overcome challenges in their high school career, providing funding for continuing education.
