Rockwell City Rotary Club and Mid American Energy Employees


Team up for Rotary District Grant Project


The Rockwell City Rotary club began thinking of replacing some rotting benches and adding a couple more new ones, approximately 1 year ago. Plans were made and quotes were received and a Rotary District Grant application was submitted. Three months later Rotary received word they had been awarded the matching grant. Proceeds from the 2022 Rotary Dinner/Dance were used as match money for this grant. The benches were ordered from Plastic Recycling of Iowa Falls. In November the benches were ready. They were picked up and stored until spring weather allowed for the assembly. A date was set to install the benches. It was announced and discussed at a Rotary After Hours meeting and Rotarian Brandon Lynch (also a Mid American Energy employee) asked if he could approach his MAE supervisors to see if they might help with the project. The following day Brandon notified us that this would fall under Mid American Energy CARES program (where their employees help with service projects to show their commitment to the communities.) May 3rd was the date set for the installation. At 8:00 AM on that date, six Mid American Energy employees and four Rotarians began installing 5 new benches. One in the Rockwell City Park, One along the sidewalk near Fareway Grocery and three near Golden Buckle Apartments. The project was finished before noon and after lunch the MAE employees worked taking down a rotting tree and trimming another, near the Park basketball courts.

Three rotting benches were taken from the Golden Buckle Apartment area last fall, and rebuilt over the winter, to be placed elsewhere around town. The wood was discarded, the steel frames were sandblasted by Champion Collision Center and then taken to McChesney Auto where they were welded, repaired and painted. Then new seats and backs were installed by Rotarians. They are now ready for placement. Thanks to all involved. This truly was a community project.











From District Governor Don Meyer:


The Rockwell City Rotary Club is a stellar club among the 49 clubs in District 5970. Here’s why:


Rotary brings out the best of the human spirit. It teaches good ethics, cultural awareness, caring for all humanity, and the desire and ability to serve. The Rockwell City Rotary Club does all of this and more.


They are the “go-to” organization in the Rockwell City community. All the good folks in Rockwell City know their Rotary Club gets stuff done! Here’s a sampling of how the Rotarians connect with their community:


Each year they produce a Community Calendar that’s distributed to the community. The citizens of Rockwell City can’t wait to get it!

They have an Interact Club at the local high school in which high schoolers support the Rotary Club with fundraisers and as volunteers on community projects, and they learn how to become servant leaders in their community.

You can find the Rotary Club’s imprint all over the community with many beautification projects and service projects that improve the quality of life in Rockwell City. In fact, you can find the Rotary logo in over 200 places in the community!


If you are looking for an organization full of fun, enthusiastic people who work hard and play hard, and who get things done, the Rockwell City Rotary Club is your place! Once you join, the professional connections you build become lifelong friends. It’s great to be a Rotarian!


Come join us!
