Welcome to the Wausau Early Birds Rotary Club website. Our club meets each Thursday morning at 7:00 a.m. at the Wausau Country Club. Members are often asked why they would attend such an early morning meeting. After all, it is very early, and during much of the year the sun is not up. When you attend the meeting though, it is clear the camaraderie, good cheer, and commitment to the Rotary International Four Way test is universally felt.


Our Early Birds Rotary club members are quite proud of our dedication to supporting Wausau area causes. The Challenge Statue is a kayaker running the whitewater course in downtown Wausau. This was the first project undertaken by our Club, and it has become part of Wausau’s identity. The statue is located on Scott Street, just as you enter the downtown, and right near the beginning of the whitewater course.


The Early Birds also initiated and solely fund the “Reading to Go” project, which supports literacy in Marathon County. Club members read books to elementary school children, and we give out books to all the children in those classes.


Our club also started an “egg-ceptional” program providing fresh eggs to food pantries throughout Marathon County. You can learn more about these projects and the many others we support on the pages of this web site.


So check us out, and attend a meeting if you wish. We promise an interesting meeting, a delicious Wausau Country Club breakfast, and the opportunity to gain new friends and reconnect with friends from times past.


Yours in Rotary,


 Dave Anderson
