On April 29, 2015, Whitnall Park Rotary Club was recognized as the "2015 Organization of the Year" at the first-ever awards banquet by the Chamber of Commerce in Hales Corners.
The award recognizes the club's overall service contributions to the community. Especially noteworthy is its creation of a truly accessible walkway in Boerner Gardens, one that will not erode.  The project includes a non-erodible pathway to the bog walk bridge and a memory circle.
The Walkway & Circle Committee includes Whitnall Park Rotary Club members (l to r in photo):
James Helminski, John Williams, James Thorsen, John Morvroydis (club president), Scott Schenke,
Paul Sackmann, & Scott Weyda.
The paver bricks in the circle are inscribed with messages commemorating events
and people important to the donors.
