The Rotary Club of New Berlin cannot put an end to a series of murders that keep interrupting their annual dinners. In fact, members guarantee it will happen again during their third annual murder mystery dinner and silent auction, "Hulas and Homicide."
This year’s fundraiser places you in a tropical setting Saturday, Feb. 28, at the New Berlin Banquet & Conference Center (formerly Kuglitsches), 16000 W. Cleveland Ave. Cocktails at cash bar start at 5 p.m., followed with a buffet dinner at 6:15 p.m.
When driving past Holy Apostles School in New Berlin, most would be surprised to learn that 19 of the seventh graders are involved in "Engineering the Future."
Volunteering can have unexpected rewards. While attending a recent Lion/Lioness convention I wandered into a talk about diabetes. As I entered, the speaker (a chef) was asking for volunteers to wash the pots and pans he would use in his demonstration of low calorie cooking.
Wow! A New Berlin Lioness friend, Frenchi Trottier-Wasielewski, was the first eager helper, along with three others. Then this chef relented and announced that because of their willingness to help, he really just needed them to sit at a table up front and taste his cooking.
