UM Rotaract "Adopts" Family

The University of Michigan's Rotaract Club has "adopted" a family for the holidays! The wonderful family has a single mother who is going to school full-time, working part-time, and raising two adorable children, ages six and seven. They are living with Grandma's house (who is unfortunately in-and-out of the hospital with diabetes complications) while Mom saves money.

Now's the time to give to our Centennial Playground Project

 

Our universally-accessible playground is getting closer to reality every day. Here's a link with pictures and a description of the project. Thanks to everyone who has given to make a playground where all children and parents can play.  Please, if you haven't contributed or you can give more, CONTRIBUTE NOW!

Coming in 2016--our Club's 100th anniversary and a gift to our community--the Rotary Centennial Universally Accessible Playground at Gallup Park.

Rollin' Against Polio Comes to Ann Arbor

R.I. Director Jennifer Jones and a team of Rotarians rolled into Ann Arbor on August 5 ready to inspire our Club and our Campus to beat polio. Shouting "We Are Rotary," about 85 members and guests marched across campus, stopping along the way to describe Rotary's long and highly effective eradication efforts. The march ended under the bronze plaque in the Rackham Building that commemorates Jonas Salk's 1955 announcement at the University of Michigan of his development of the first successful polio vaccine.
