Welcome to the St. Croix Falls Rotary Club
Greetings from the St Croix Falls-Taylors Falls Rotary Club! Be our guest on a Wednesday at noon at the St. Croix Regional Medical Center Riverbend Conference Center and learn how you can help serve others in your community.
Of course though, Rotary’s community is not just in town. It is a world-wide organization that follows the creed of “Service Above Self”. Rotary has fought a tough battle to eradicate Polio, but Rotary is so much more than that.
The SCF-TF Club is active in helping locally and globally. Here are a few places we have been active locally:
- Donated money to, and helped repair and paint, a local women’s shelter.
- Mentor students in the local high schools.
- Have given thousands of dollars in scholarships.
- Sponsor foreign exchange students … inbound and outbound.
- Major sponsor and volunteer force for Wannigan Days.
- Donated money towards and facilitated the construction of the local skate park.
- Contribute to food shelves, handicapped fairs, and other community projects.
- Adopted a highway, clean parks, installed benches, and more.
We are community members who want to give back, serve others, and be a part of an organization known for being a gift to the world. Come and check us out.
From the President
My name is Dawn Mielke. I have lived in St Croix Falls almost my entire life and am proud to serve as Rotary President in such a great community. Being a part of this community is such an amazing thing. As I grew up here I saw many business owners, teachers, community members step up and provide service to others, most of the time out of the goodness of their heart. Many of them still serving today. I am fortunate to have witnessed this, quickly learning the value of volunteering, the impact it can make, and the feeling it gives to all involved. Today I want to give back to a community that helped shape me to who I am today.
I can honestly say that Rotary has changed my life, and not just for me but for my family. It has given me and my family the opportunity to serve, and have fellowship with such wonderful people. Near and dear to my heart is Rotary Youth Exchange and have had the opportunity to participate with our district for many student events from all over the world. Rotary Youth Exchange gave my family the opportunity to welcome kids into our home and enjoy a cultural experience. The benefit that alone has brought to my family is far more than words can describe. I can only imagine that Rotary will continue to be a great life experience for me and my family.
During my year as President our club will continue our vocational efforts by providing leadership, mentorship, and support to our kids. We as Rotarians we will participate and support community activities and events. We will work to bring more members to our Rotary family, continuing to touch the lives of others through our fellowship and service.
I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to serve as Rotary President for the St Croix Falls / Taylors Falls Rotary Club.

Rotary Club Radio
The St. Croix Falls Rotary Club has been a leader in using technology and social networking to promote Rotary Club’s core values and goals. We were excited to have developed a cutting edge strategy for blogging, social networking, video, and now podcasting.
We are thrilled to launch Rotary Club Radio to further educate and entertain Rotarians and non-Rotarians via a online “New Media” format.
Rotary Club Radio is hosted by a Kirk Anderson, a Rotarian from St. Croix Falls, WI. He is currently lining up interviews with Rotarians from across the globe to find out how Rotary is making a difference in the World.
