Incoming Assistant Governor Mike Kloss joined us for breakfast on May 23rd.  He will replace
Karen Hebert as she completes her 3-year term.  We were pleased to host him and look forward
to his leadership in Group 1.  Pictured with him are Mike Shaide, president and Courtney Sand, 
president-elect.
Menomonie Chief of Police Eric Atkinson discussed the continuing meth problem in the city and the 
human & financial cost to all.  The city is embarking on a new approach to combat the problem.  He
spoke at our May 23rd meeting; thanks Chief.
Josh Bergman describes the operation of an automated planting machine that is part of his business,
Season's Harvest Nursery.  This automation increases the production of his plant inventory and also 
allows him to control several other aspects which results in a better and more uniform crop.
 
Josh Bergman, owner of Season's Harvest Nursery describes the controlled watering and fertilizing system used to keep
his plant inventory healthy and blooming.  Systems such as this help control costs and provide a better, stronger plant
for his customers.  Our club enjoyed a tour of his business on May 16th after having breakfast on site.

Barb Anderson of PeaceWork Quilts and Joan Harris of the Sunrise Rotary Club are
presenting a  check for $1,100 to Katherine Dutton of Stepping Stones; the result
of ticket sales for the 2019 Quilt from the Rotary Fest.  The PeaceWork Quilters
donate the quilt each year and Stepping Stones sells the tickets for it.  Great Job to all.  
 
Joan Harris is presenting a check for $700  to Melissa Larson of the WestCap Food Pantry in
Boyceville; a result of ticket sales for the Peacework Quilt from the 2019 Rotary Fest.
 
As the director of Main Street Menomonie, Dustyn is charged with helping business owners in downtown create ways to attract people/customers to those in the historic district.  Dustyn is the man for this task-he speaks well, loves Menomonie and enjoys trying to improve the downtown area for all of us.  Thanks, Dustyn for a great talk.  
Bob Rosendahl and Tom Harris did very well selling chances for the drawings.  This year Tom had two hand guns, one rifle and a cross bow to
interested folks at Rotary Fest.  

 

 
The 2019 Rotary Fest was a great success, thanks to all of the club members who helped with the setup on Friday afternoon and working the event on Saturday evening, April 13th at Vision Quest.  This is the event area decked out for the occasion.  The cleanup on Sunday morning went well also, thanks to those who got up early after a late night!
 
Tim Mather and Robyn Thibado of West CAP provided a great overview of the organization's mission
at our weekly meeting.   Their staff works to provide solutions to several social issues in western Wisconsin
that affect residents in this area.  Thanks to Tim and Robyn for their time and effort.
