Sad news of the passing of one great guy, and one unmatched Rotarian. Dick Muehlbauer joined the club in 1995, served honorably as Club President for 2001-2002, past Board Member and named a Rotary Club Paul Harris Fellow. Our deepest sympathy to his wife Cathy.  More information to follow regarding services and/or family wishes.
 Prader-Willi Syndrome Association of Wisconsin board member Jamie Milaeger spoke of the groups mission is to provide support, education, raise awareness, advocate, and raise funds for not only individuals living with Prader-Willi Syndrome but to the families, physicians, schools, and community around them.  Prader-Willi Syndrome is a rare complex genetic disorder that affects 1:15,000 to 1:25,000 individuals.  Its primary complications include insatiable appetite, low muscle tone, life-threatening obesity, incomplete sexual development, cognitive and language delays, and behavioral outbursts.  Due to these complications there are safety protocols needed to keep these individuals safe.  Food and other items need to be locked up and these individuals need to be supervised 24-7.  PWSA-WI in addition to the mission provides safe social events for the individuals that living with PWS in WI.  Currently there are roughly 180 individuals living with PWS in the state of Wisconsin.
