Staying Mentally Fit Amid Virus Fears

Posted by Joy Wick
 
Another great Green Bay West Rotary meeting on Zoom today!! We just love hearing from the experts on what's going on in our community, state and the world these days. Thanks so much to Dr. Brandon Hayes, Clinical Director of the Fox Valley Clinic for Christian Family Solutions, who shared with us the status of mental health in our community during these trying times. We love the tips to stay active, practice positive mindset and making sure we have fun along the way. We know Dr. Hayes is extremely busy with the tremendous workload of patients that he sees from early morning to late evening -- we so appreciate all that he is doing for our community members, and we're grateful for his time this morning. Thanks again to Rotarian Dave Wendland who helped make this connection to Dr. Hayes.

Just Be Nice, with Steve Baue

Posted on May 13, 2020

Steve Baue, CEO of ERC Counselors and Consultants, provided a great reminder today that it's our job to take care of ourselves and share concern for those around us. Especially now, he says, it's important to notice any changes in the people we live and work with, ask if they're OK and listen. Just Be Nice. Many, many thanks to Steve for joining our weekly Zoom meeting!

Expert Insight on Coronavirus

Posted on May 05, 2020
 
Many, many thanks to Dr. Jason Paltzer, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the Baylor University who joined us May 5 from Waco, Texas. Dr. Paltzer grew up in Wisconsin's Fox Valley area and is a friend of Rotarian Dave Wendland. Through this connection, Green Bay West Rotary Club was given tremendous insight into the science behind the coronavirus, and what makes it such a risk in many communities. For this we are grateful. Thank you Dr. Paltzer!
 
Isn't it amazing how far apart we are but great technology brings us together in ways we hadn't really considered before?

Club Member Makes a Difference for those in Need

Posted on Apr 28, 2020

It's so important that we help where we can in our community. We're grateful to those who have participated in the Green Bay West Rotary's We'll Be Back initiative - our goal is to keep our local businesses alive by buying gift cards to use later when we're able to be together again. Our very own Dennis Rader purchased gift cards from local restaurants and guess what?! ..... he donated them to the The Salvation Army of Greater Green Bay. Here's what the recipients of those LOCAL restaurant gift cards had to say:

UW-Green Bay Volleyball Team finds Strength while Apart

Posted on Apr 21, 2020

A great big THANK YOU to the staff and players from the UW-Green Bay Green Bay Phoenix Volleyball for joining Green Bay West Rotary's virtual club meeting this week! It's so great to see how strong their bonds remain even though we are all so far apart right now. It's all because of a dynamic strategy lead by Coach Abbey Sutherland that combines accountability with daily routine, mental and physical wellbeing check-ins and fun. Looking forward to the next season so we can get out and support our local Division 1 Athletes!

Green Bay West Rotary President Bob Faulds presents Green Bay Mayor Eric Genrich with a certificate that commits to inoculate 10 people with the polio vaccine worldwide in the Mayor’s honor. It was our honor to have Mayor Genrich as our guest today, especially after the Green Bay Packers win over Seattle on Sunday, through which a few good-natured wagers were won by Titletown.

SLO Farmers Co-op

Posted on Jan 07, 2020
Sustainable, local, organic. Rotary members learned that SLO Farmers Co-op is working hard to spread the word on the importance of having locally sourced food available in our communities. Many thanks to Rachel Baranczyk for sharing this important message with us, and for allowing us to raffle off a box of meat to our membership.

Five Wishes

We are so grateful for Rotary member Terry Bush and his wife Nan for having the courage to share with us the heart wrenching story of loss their family has suffered. Amid the indescribable pain, they found comfort in having an advance directive and conversations with family about end of life plans. Specifically, their family utilized a Five Wishes document - an easy-to-use legal advance directive document written in everyday language. It helps all adults, regardless of age or health, to consider and document how they want to be cared for at the end of life. Learn more here: https://fivewishes.org/, or reach out to your health provider including Bellin, Prevea, Aurora, St. Vincent Hospital and Unity Hospice for more information.

Stories from an NFL trainer

Who doesn’t love a great sports story? Green Bay West Club members were treated to legendary tales from longtime NFL trainer Pepper Burruss who retired this year after 42 seasons. Pepper has worked with the likes of Aaron Rodgers, Brett Favre, Reggie White ... the list can only go on and on and on during his 16 seasons with the New York Jets and 26 seasons with the Green Bay Packers. In those 42 seasons, he’s experienced 883 games and 46 playoff games. And guess what? There are many aspects of the game he misses a lot, but Pepper is loving retirement. Thank you Pepper - don’t be a stranger at Rotary!

Resch School of Engineering. the Einstein Project, UW-Extension/Brown County and Brown County’s Land and Water Conservation department. So many questions, and so many great answers from Dean Katers.
