The Lake Mills Rotary Club is pleased to announce new evening meeting times meant to appeal to those that would like to be involved with a local service organization, but whose schedules make it difficult for them to attend daytime meetings.
Jefferson County’s prime location between the state’s two major metropolitan areas means many of the area’s residents work outside of the county, which makes attending local daytime meetings hard or even impossible. At the same time, many of those same people are invested in their local communities and would prefer to be involved in a service organization closer to home.
The Lake Mills Rotary Club is the first Rotary Club in the county to offer regular evening meetings to address this need. A subsection of the club meets the first and third Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. The meetings are conveniently held at Crawfish Junction in Milford, and have already attracted attendees from both Lake Mills and Watertown.
The club’s regular lunchtime meetings remain at noon on Tuesdays at the Lake Mills EMS building (603 E. Lake Street). In months with five Tuesdays, the fifth Tuesday has been set aside as a special joint evening meeting, which allows the day and evening meetings to join together to build connections and ensure continuity.
“I was looking for a way to get more involved locally, but working in Madison kept me from joining local groups that met during the workweek,” said new Lake Mills Rotary member John Holevoet. “I was already familiar with the great work Rotary does in town and internationally. When I learned there was a evening meeting option, I was excited I could be a part of it.”
