Enchantment in the Park’s mission is to create a holiday adventure for one and all, where wonder and excitement are experienced through enchanting holiday light displays, music and other performing arts.
In order to accomplish this mission, Enchantment in the Park brings together many community groups and individuals in a spirit of service to design, set up, operate and take down the event every year through sponsorship and donations. Any excess funds are returned to community organizations, such as Froedtert St. Joseph’s Hospital through donations or are used to help further growth of Enchantment in the Park. In addition, all collected food donations are distributed to Washington County and Menomonee Falls food pantries.
Enchantment in the Park was founded in 2009 by the Rotary Clubs of Washington County: West Bend Noon, West Bend Sunrise, Hartford and Slinger/Allenton. In 2013, the Menomonee Falls Rotary joined the leadership team. This team also consists of community members that are not associated with any of the Rotary Clubs.
Rotary Club is a global network of community volunteers founded in 1905. It is one of the first and largest service organizations in the world. Rotary gives back to communities across the globe through scholarships, exchange programs and humanitarian grants. In addition, Rotary engages in a broad range of educational, intercultural, and humanitarian activities designed to improve the lives of others. Rotary club members consist of professional and community leaders who meet regularly to plan and implement community-service activities and network with one another. Members can also choose to become involved in international humanitarian service efforts.
