The motto of Rotary International is "Service Above Self." Hundreds of Rotary members in the Chippewa Valley work to live out that motto through projects that improve the quality of life locally and globally. Our Rotary "Light It Up" project draws on the strength of Rotary to build collaborations between Rotary members, business partners and higher education. To "Light It Up," Rotary has built the needed collaborations and will raise the funds to purchase and install the equipment to light the Phoenix Park pedestrian bridge and to cover ongoing operating costs.
Eau Claire Rotary Club is organizing this collaboration and we want to thank all of the supporting clubs in the valley;
Eau Claire Morning
Chippewa Valley After Hours
Altoona High School Interact Club
Regis High School Interact Club

The project will also be supported by students in UW-Eau Claire's Architectural Lighting Program, who will work with lighting and control panel design; in the process, they'll receive real-world experience not otherwise available in the Chippewa Valley.
