What is Oilop? …It’s Polio spelled backward.


Rotary is an international leader in the effort to eradicate polio. In the last 30 years, we have immunized 2 and a half billion children. As a result, this disease has almost been eliminated.


We encourage you to explore our new website by participating in our “Oilop” Treasure Hunt.




“Oilop” is scattered across 12 different locations within our website. Make a note of every “oilop” you find, and send the list to Rita in the Rotary office at


For every “oilop” you find, we will contribute a $5 donation in your name to the Rotary Foundation, up to $25, toward polio vaccines.


This donation will help in effort toward our goal of a polio free world, so start scrolling!

The Last Mile Study – Public Policy Forum
Location: War Memorial Center
Date & Time: May 9, 2017 @ 11:45 am - March 29, 2018 @ 3:18 pm
More Information

Rob Henken, President of the Public Policy Forum, will provide an overview of their recent study The Last Mile: Connecting workers to places of employment.  This research suggests that flexible forms of transit service – and perhaps new strategies linked to partnerships with ride-hailing companies like Lyft and Uber – could help address the region’s elusive “last mile” problem, which can arise when fixed-route transit services stop short of bringing commuters all the way to their job sites. This will be followed by a panel discussion that includes Public Policy Forum Senior Researcher Joe Peterangelo, Waukesha County Board Chair Paul Decker, and Corey Zetts of Menomonee Valley Partners.
