Exciting News! We are now *Celebrate Diversity Fox Cities*

Toward Community: Unity in Diversity, and the Fox Cities Rotary Multicultural Center have been working since last fall to merge our two nonprofits, so that we can have a greater collective impact on our community. May 16, 2014, at the first meeting since the merger of the two organizations, members of the combined (former) boards formally approved a new name for our organization: *Celebrate Diversity Fox Cities*.

We also selected four people as officers of the organization, four additional board members and five people to be Emeritus board members. Additionally, there will be four to eight members of the board added once we've ascertained their commitment to serve. 

Co Chairpersons: Carolyn Desrosiers and Jeff Kuepper 
Secretary: E-Ben Grisby
Treasurer: Nancy Heykes
Other Board Members: Carol Bloemer, Jody Harrell, Sharon Bowen, Scott Peeples*(and four to eight others, to be determined.)
Emeritus Council Members: Henry Golde, Ruth Mansukhani, Ellie Olson, Badri Varma, Kamlesh Varma

In the near future, we will be sending out invitations to become a dues-paying member of Celebrate Diversity Fox Cities. We hope you will  join us in this exciting new adventure. 
Dues structure:
  • $15 for students (college and younger) and seniors (age 55 and older); 
  • Individual, $25; 
  • Family, $35; 
  • Individual Sustaining, $70 (thanks for your additional support!);
  • Organization member, $50; 
  • Organization member-Sustaining, $100 (thanks for your additional support!)
The important work that both organizations have been doing will continue under the auspices of Celebrate Diversity Fox Cities. This will require active committee work in the following areas: Education and Outreach, Advocacy, Diversity Promotion & Communication, Membership Engagement, Leadership/Board Development, Finance and Resource Development, Events, MLK Event.

The Fox Cities is a great place, but we have a lot of work to do to make this a community that truly accepts everyone. Please join us for the next meeting of Celebrate Diversity Fox Cities on Monday, May 19 at Goodwill in Menasha at 6:30 pm in the Obeya room.
