The Subregion C Chronicle September/October 2015 - Page 9

  Update from the Wisconsin-Upper Michigan District: Greetings, Sub Region C! I hope everyone is having a WUMderful start to the semester! My name is Five Yang, and I am a senior at the University of Wisconsin – Madison (Go Badgers!). I am the WisconsinUpper Michigan District Governor. It is my complete honor to introduce my district to everyone. Unlike our counterparts, Kiwanis and Key Club, we are WUM, not WIUM. That is because we don’t believe in “I.” We believe in “U.” The WUM District has been around for over half a century. By the end of the 2014-15 year, WUM will have approximately 20 active clubs and over 570 members. We have several district events throughout the year and our members are very eager to serve their community. We are so proud to be a part of this wonderful organization and subregion! On behalf of the WUM District, I would like to invite everyone to attend our fall conference, Membership Awareness Conference, also known as MAC. It is the weekend of October 9-11 at Camp Wawbeek in Wisconsin Dells. Camp Wawbeek is a camp for campers of all abilities. In the fall we prepare the camp for the end of its season, and all money from fundraisers will be donated to camp. There will be outdoor service projects, midnight runs to Denny’s, a WUM’s Got Talent show, and tons of fellowship events! This is a fun weekend and great opportunity to meet our district. Also, we are expecting International Board members to attend so this will be a chance to meet them in fun and casual setting! If you have questions or just want to talk, feel free to contact me or add me on Facebook! My email is fiveyang01@gmail.com and my phone number is 920.277.0904. Have a great semester, and I look forward to seeing what our districts and members will achieve this year! Yours truly, Five Yang
