The Decorah Rotary Club combined its traditional "Fifth Tuesday" evening meeting and service project on May 29th with the club's annual picnic, hosted at Whalen Cabin in Decorah's Phelps Park. This particular service project consisted of the construction of birdhouses, some of which were given to children in attendance and the remainder provided by DRC member Samantha Scholtes to Mosaic of Northern Iowa for distribution to homes under their auspices in the communities of Decorah and Waukon. Special thanks to the following DRC members: Ward Budweg for leading the birdhouse logistical preparations and donating supplies, and Shannon Duncan for sizing and cutting the wood. Thanks also to DRC members Uwe Rudolph and Joe Hammel for their lumber donations, John Anderson for the hamburgers, Matt Burkey for his grilling skills, Jon Christy for setting up the dining area, Jerry Aulwes for the beer sampling and Mike Haluska for the wine tasting. Thanks also to everyone who brought delicious side items to share, and to all the folks who came out and joined us for this fun event.
