Adrian Morning - 20 Little Free Libraries
Adrian Morning Rotary Club members primed the newly constructed Little Free Libraries that were built by the building trades class at Lenawee Intermediate School District’s Tech Center. This is the club’s latest service project in process. Twenty of these libraries are being constructed, painted and filled with books, and will be placed in various places in the Adrian area for use and enjoyment by the community. After priming, the libraries are being transported to art classes at Adrian High School for completion. Other groups participating in the project include Goodwill, LINCs, Lenawee Great Start and the Lenawee District Library. Adrian Morning Rotary meets at 7 a.m. each Wednesday morning at the Christian Family Centre and welcomes all individuals interested in community service, fellowship and fun.

Did you know that after the holidays, volunteering drops off sharply? Livonia AM & Noon Rotarians and friends gathered to pack food at Gleaners Community Food Bank, and they are going back in February!

Rotary Club of Harrow
A great act of kindness from the Harrow Rotary Club's visit to the local retirement home in Harrow on Valentine's Day. Harrow Rotarians Walt Sellick, Bill Pook, Bryan Meyer and John Macpherson spent the afternoon with the ladies at Retirement Home during their Valentine's Day Tea Social handing our roses. This made all the ladies smile and truly made their day!

 Rotary International Director-Elect Jennifer Jones
PDG Sylvia Whitlock

I'm excited to be speaking at Southern California/Nevada PETS with many dear friends. Most honoured to be sharing time with PDG Sylvia Whitlock who made it possible for me to be a Rotarian. It took a Supreme Court ruling for women to be allowed to join and Sylvia led that charge. I get goosebumps even writing this. She spoke this morning about diversity and I told her today she is the Rosa Parks of Rotary!

North American Youth Exchange Network Conference (NAYEN). This was them teaching me “hog calling”. Over 22 countries were represented and it took place in Little Rock, Arkansas. I was there as President Gary Huang’s Representative. I will say that I don’t think I have a future in hog calling!! lol

For the second week in a row there have been no reported cases of polio anywhere in the world, according to figures released by the World Health Organization (WHO). Please share this positive news as widely as you can! Read more: polio-update

Rotary of Detroit
DG Liz was surprised and touched by the $1,000 donation today from The Rotary Club of Detroit. These funds will be to be used to buy children's books reflecting our community, and placed inside the Detroit Little Libraries before the end of February, Black History Month. Thank you so much for the generous donation. — with Liz Smith Yeats and Kim Kozlowski at Detroit Athletic Club

Rotary Club of Plymouth

Each year near Valentine's Day, we party with the seniors.  
This year about 10 Rotarians served pizza and pop for dinner before playing Bingo with about 50 seniors on Wednesday, Feb. 11  In the past we gave wrapped prizes...however, the past couple of years we've given $10 for first place winners and $5 for second place...with many on fixed incomes, they seem to like having the extra cash to spend.  Rotarians take turns calling the Bingo numbers.  We had six Interact students from the high school help serve food and call back the Bingo numbers to the caller.  After Bingo, we had cupcakes and gave each a heart-shaped box of chocolates.  We also had drawings for Target gift cards as grand prizes.
The residents of Tonquish Creek Manor consistently thanked us for another great evening...and are already looking forward to next year.  Tony Bruscato

Rotary Club of Windsor St. Clair
They challenged and encouraged everyone in the community to come out to Canadian Blood Services to show their love on Valentine’s Day. It was Rotary Day at Blood Services, Windsor and Rotary Club members were encouraged to come out wearing their Rotary shirts and donate blood. Refreshments were served to all those who gave the gift of life.

Rotary Club of Romulus
