Rotarians Doing The Work!

Main article image for story titled 'Rotarians Doing The Work!'

Rotarians, along with their families and friends, joined forces on Saturday, September 9, with Sleep In Heavenly Peace to build beds for children who may not have a place to lay their heads each night.
All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. In in Wisconsin and across the US, too many boys and girls go without a bed—or even a pillow—to sleep on. These children end up sleeping on couches, blankets, and even floors. This can affect their happiness and health.
That’s where Sleep in Heavenly Peace comes in. They are a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling and delivering top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need.

Tanzania Facilities Project

Main article image for story titled 'Tanzania Facilities Project'





The Hartland Lake Country Rotary Club is partnering with the Rotary Club of Hai Kilimanjaro, Tanzania to build proper bathrooms for children who attend Kirima Secondary School. The school's existing toilet block collapsed due to heavy rains. Students at the Kirma Secondary School miss many days of school due to illnesses associated with improper sanitation. Many female students had decided to stop coming to school altogether because of the lack of toilets.
Hartland Lake Country Rotarian Randy Helbach introduced the project to our local Rotarians after he had engaged in a Rotary Friendship Exchange in Africa. The photos below show the progress that the Rotary Club of Hai Kilimanjaro is making towards building new toilets for the school children with the help of our local Rotary Club. The Rotary Club of Hai is doing all of the construction on this project and they are very thankful for the support that our club is providing.

The Hartland Lake Country Rotary is proud to be a part of this project which will make a difference in the lives of hundreds of students and the faculty. As Margaret Mead stated, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

If you are interested in serving others at both the local, regional, and international levels, please check out Hartland Lake Country Rotary. We meet at the Delafield Brewhaus the first three Friday's of the month (with the exception of holidays) at noon. We'd love to have you join us for lunch and learn more about the exciting opportunities offered through Rotary!

Interact and The Lake Country Rotary Club

By Tuesday, November 15, 2022


The Lake Country Rotary Club has sponsored High School Interact teams for over a decade.  At it’s peak, the Lake Country Rotary sponsored three Interact teams.  Currently, Lake Country Rotary sponsors the Kettle Moraine Interact and the Arrowhead Warhawk Interact.  Interact involves high school students in community service projects on a local, regional and international basis.  Interact is structured on the Rotary model of Avenues of Service.

Projects of the Kettle Moraine and Warhawk Interacts include tutoring younger students, the Waukesha Adopt a Highway program, volunteering at Lake Country Caring, providing intergenerational support at Hartland Terrace and Three Pillars assisted living centers. Regionally, Interactors support St Ben’s meal site in Milwaukee and The Women’s Center in Waukesha. Internationally, Interact has partnered with Lake Country Rotary to provide water filters in Haiti.  Additionally, Kettle Moraine Interact has adopted children in Haiti.

Combined, the Kettle Moraine and Warhawk Interact teams have a membership approaching 300 students.  With the guidance of the school advisors, they continue to have an on-going positive impact in the community as an extension of the Lake Country Rotary Club.
