A Message from The 2023-2024 Madison Rotary Club President

Susan S. Wagner

Madison Rotary 2023/2024 Club President, Susan Wagner


It has truly been a privilege to be a part of the Rotary Club of Madison, and I am continually amazed by the depth and breadth of Rotary International and all of its members. As such, I am honored to undertake the responsibilities of being the President of the Rotary Club of Madison for the 2023-2024 year.

This year’s Rotary theme is “Create Hope in the World.” At a time when the world is faced with a wide range of challenges, I consider creating hope a worthy endeavor. Madison may be a small town, but I know that we have made a difference to many on both a local and an international level.

Locally, we have helped to benefit those in need by sponsoring the Warm the Children project, where parents in need are able to purchase clothing for their children. And there are many such families in our area.

We have also donated over $100,000 to the Madison Food Pantry. We have availed $10,000 in scholarships to Daniel Hand High School Students just this year, and we have sponsored local organizations such as Madison Lyric Stage, Shoreline Arts Alliance, and Madison Cultural Arts, to name a few.

Internationally, we have sponsored the drilling of a well in Uganda that will provide water for a village of 900 people, helped to feed those in need in Haiti, and, as always, worked with the foundation to totally eliminate the threat of Polio in the world.

These are just a few of our projects; there are many more that we will work on during the course of the year. My hope is that we can inspire more individuals to join us in all of our pursuits. Every member brings to the table a unique set of talents and skills that strengthen the club and further our endeavors to create lasting change. Yes, I would like to “Create Hope in the World,” and I will strive towards that end in my tenure as president. Looking forward to the year ahead!

Yours in Rotary,

Susan S. Wagner
President, Madison Rotary Club, 2023-2024
