What We Do
Supporting our Local Community
Badger Prairie Needs Network
  Once a month, Fitchburg-Verona Rotarians volunteer at the Badger Prairie Needs Network (BPNN). BPNN, whose  mission is to Fight Poverty and End Hunger Locally, is a 100% volunteer agency dedicated to ending hunger and addressing the root causes of generational poverty throughout the communities they serve. Beginning in May, and continuing through the year, we will be repackaging food that has been "rescued" from area businesses. To learn more about how the Kitchen to Table initiative helps reduce waste by distributing surplus prepared food to meal sites and pantries. 
   
 
Little Free Library
 
The Fitchburg Verona Rotary Club contributes to Little Free Books. Little Free Library has been recognized by or partnered with First Book, the Chronicle of Philanthropy, the Library of Congress, and the International Literacy Association, to name a few. Hailed by the New York Times as "a global sensation," Little Free Library is a new but already well-known non-profit changing the face of community outreach and literacy initiatives today.
     
Student Scholarships for Service to the Community
 
Every year, the Fitchburg Verona Rotary Club honors Verona Area High School seniors with scholarships in recognition of their efforts to be a positive role model for their community through various service projects. Three Students of the Month are nominated by teachers and from those three students, the Club selects one as the Student of the Year, presenting him or her with a $1,000 scholarship.
 
Congratulations to the 2018 Student of the Year, Lauryn Hahn!

Water Cisterns in Kenya
 
Water issues in Kenya's semi-arid region are increasingly becoming a chronic concern. In many instances, it is the difference between life and death. The Fitchburg Verona Rotary Club has decided to take action and donated a water cistern allowing for better access to potable water. The Fitchburg Verona Rotary Club chose this particular community as an acknowledgement to their committed efforts in reforestation. Their effect of planting and caring for over 100,000 trees has caused rippling effects throughout the community and their ecosystem.
 
Water cisterns also reduce the need to harvest more trees. Without cisterns, the rain water is lost and wood is needed in order to boil the water for drinking. Providing the community with cisterns is an important step in ending this vicious cycle. More trees mean more water in the ecosystem and more crop land that won't fall victim to issues of erosion during the rainy season.

Member Profile: A Vine Idea
 
Heidi Kühn arrived in Utsunomiya, Japan, in 1975, a few months after the end of the Vietnam War. She was a Rotary Youth Exchange student, and what she saw and experienced in Japan led her to reflect on the post-World War II reconciliation between that country and her native United States. “The idea of former enemies bridging borders for peace left an impression in my heart,” she says.
