REMINDER! Regular Meeting location move

We are relocating our meetings back to the Roehl Auditorium at the Center for Life Enrichment at Shorehaven, due to extensive heating issues at the Clubhouse. Please tell guests and fellow Rotarians. The address is 1306 W. Wis. Ave., enter through the Center awning doors. We will be stationed in the Roehl until further notice. Thank you for your adaptable spirit at this time and Shorehaven apologizes for the inconvenience.

CLASSIFICATION TALKS!
Our new Rotarians are funny, smart and committed!
“My life is defined by stupid luck,” new Rotarian Ahlke Heydemann told her peers. The brilliant research analyst lauds Penn State, National Institute of Health, and University of Chicago as some of her career launchers,  teaching medical and graduate school and researching cures for Muscular Dystrophy. Clinical trials, cell transplants and unlimited data led her passion for helping others fight debilitating diseases. Describing herself as a speed addict as a kid, in biking, skiing, soccer and rugby, Heydemann now has set her sights on retirement. She hopes to continue to teach on a collegiate setting. She found the perfect home and yard in Oconomowoc and wants to serve others in her new pursuits.
 
“Frustrations? I don’t really have any frustrations.” Dr. Michael Sereno described the joys of serving as Superintendent of Schools, and expounded on the OASD’s career based learning strategies. He said few communities wrap themselves around the school district as Oconomowoc does. Always striving to improve the learning community, Sereno takes great pride in leading five elementary schools, two intermediate schools and one high school, covering three counties. After gaining a new hip last summer, he’s attempting his tennis game again. He enjoys tackling obstacles and turning hurdles into opportunities.
