The Rotary Club of Elkhorn has been involved in the community for 49 years and has put its support behind End Polio Now, Shelter Box International, Elkhorn Rotary Soccer Field, Habitat for Humanity, Elkhorn Area High School scholarships, the Youth Exchange program and many local charity organizations and community events.

In the past year, in addition to a tree-planting project, the club has worked to raise awareness and funds to support New Beginnings, a Walworth County Domestic Violence Shelter for women and children.

Sara Nichols, who wrapped up her year as club president on June 30, said club members take their role – and ability to encourage change – to heart.

“It’s not just what we do for the community, but who we are as people. We have the power to help change the course of the future,” Nichols said at the installation and awards banquet, held June 20 at the Monte Carlo Room.
