Lincoln Avenue Stable Update

At the community level, the Lincoln Avenue Stable Project continues to move along nicely. The Rotary Club of Milwaukee’s President-Elect, Ed Krishok, has been engaged by the Lincoln Avenue Stable Community-wide Steering Committee to spend several months helping to develop a comprehensive project plan. While the project is in overall good shape, Ed will be confirming the budget and timeline, working with MPD representatives to insure their needs are met, and working to clarify the next steps for the equine-assisted therapy and police/community engagement programs.

 

Equine-assisted therapy in action.

 

There is growing community interest in the police/community engagement component of the project and Ed will also help assess the program’s space and resource needs in light of that interest.

 

How Can You Help?

 

Regarding the club’s fundraising status, we continue to chip away at our $250,000 goal. 152 Rotarians have pledged just over $220,000. And, to help us finish this effort, The Zilber Family Foundation has very generously offered a $10,000 challenge grant.

 

So, if you are still considering a gift, or considering increasing your original gift, please contact the Rotary office.

 

Ed Krishok is pulling together advisory committees to help guide the development of programming for the community engagement and equine-assisted therapy pieces of project. If you have an interest in learning more about how you might get involved, please reach out to Ed or call the Rotary office
