Decorah Rotary Club Tree Dedication PDF Print E-mail

The Decorah Rotary Club held a dedication ceremony in honor of fellow Rotarians we have recently lost on Saturday, April 18th.  A total of 5 trees have been planted in the Bowstring Bridge Park located off Hwy 9 between Kelly Realty and the Gundersen Medical Clinic in memory of Warren Berg, Bob Cowie, Paul Hardy, Lyle Rodman, and Dan Werner -- all dearly departed friends, local leaders, and distinguished Decorah Rotarians who served their club and their community with foresight, energy, and selfless dedication over many years.  Our friends and Rotarians had the opportunity to share many wonderful and inspiring memories during the ceremony.  A plaque listing the names of each Rotarian for whom the trees were planted will be installed later this spring/summer.  The Club thanks all who participated.  A special note of thanks to DRC President Jennifer Gipp for her leadership of the event.

Advanced Sustainable Vehicle Technologies Presented to the DRC PDF Print E-mail

The Decorah Rotary Club welcomed guest speaker Chris Schneider from Honda Motorwerks in La Crosse to their regular meeting on December 30th.  Chris provided interesting insights into the Honda "Pathway to Sustainability" initiative that is working towards the goal of future vehicle propulsion using renewable energy sources with no emissions.  Automobile energy technologies discussed, in order of their perceived increase in benefit to society, included efficient gasoline engines, Hybrid Electric Vehicles, Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles, Compressed Natural Gas Vehicles, Battery Electric Vehicles, and Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles.  Chris also introduced the Club to the Green Drinks organization and suggested Decorah as a great candidate for hosting these sorts of events.

We thank Chris and Program Chair George Hagen for the interesting and informative presentation.
