I originally joined the Milwaukee Rotary years ago when I worked and lived downtown.  My career took me to Mequon and my wife and I moved to Cedarburg.  I actually took a few years off from Rotary after the move to the North Shore as I found it hard to make all of the meetings in downtown Milwaukee. I always had a desire to get involved in my new community and when long member Roger Kirgues brought me to a Rotary meeting, I instantly felt welcomed. I love the comradery the club has and have found it easy to feel connected due to the size of the club compared to others.  The long time members are great mentors and stewards for the newer members and continue to show the next generation what it truly means to be a Rotarian. I am honored to be part of this club and look forward to the many years ahead.
