On the Table Information: October 17th

“On the Table offers a welcoming, accessible way for any and all people in our community to contribute their ideas and energy toward advancing a more vibrant and connected region.”

-Ellen Gilligan, President of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.


You may have heard that on a single day this fall, people throughout the four-county region will gather in small groups to share a meal and engage in meaningful conversation about the individual and collective measures we can take to improve the quality of life in our community. The Greater Milwaukee Foundation has invited everyone to host or join a discussion as part of On the Table Greater Milwaukee – a unique opportunity to build relationships, generate ideas and ignite action for the benefit of our community and its future.


Rotarians JoAnne Anton, Mary McCormick, Janan Najeeb, and Griselda Aldrete gather with Greater Milwaukee Foundation leadership and fellow On the Table hosts.


The Rotary Club of Milwaukee will participate in a BIG way—we will open our lunch to selected individuals and organizations from throughout the community.  We hope to have up to 100 guests. Lunch tables will include both Rotarians and visitors and an assigned facilitator will lead a conversation from 12:15 to 1:15. No podium speaker; everyone will have a chance to speak on October 17th at the tables.


We are still working on the logistics so more to follow.


Although we hope you will be at lunch on the 17th, you are also welcome to join or host other conversations. Perhaps you’d like to host a breakfast at your office or a dinner at your home?  More information is available at
