Rotary Club of Grosse Pointe
Madeline Bialecki, executive director of The Lake House, "A Gathering Place for Those Touched by Cancer," was the stand-in guest speaker at the Jan. 26 luncheon meeting of Rotary of Grosse Pointe. Though a Michigan native, Bialecki spent 28 years in Pennsylvania, where she made a career in managing nonprofit organizations. "I was in Rotary for 10 years in Pennsylvania," she told the Grosse Pointe Rotarians. "I love Rotary."

Before moving back to Michigan, Bialecki served as caregiver for a close friend who was found to have a type of cancer in the brain. Through helping her friend through radiation treatments, infections and setbacks, Bialecki received a crash course in oncology and its complications. When her friend passed away, Bialecki moved back to her native state close to the water in St. Clair Shores. She became acquainted with The Lake House through taking yoga classes there. When told The Lake House executive director was leaving and asked if she would be interested in the job, she "jumped at the chance."

Originally formed in 2011 as Gilda Club East, The Lake House is an independent 501(c)3 organization serving, primarily, St. Clair Shores and the Grosse Pointes. Its mission is to provide support, education and wellness activities for those impacted by cancer. "The Lake House is for anyone who has been touched by cancer," Bialecki said. "You don't have to have had cancer."

Joining Bialecki at the lectern was volunteer Pam Stanley, a four-year cancer survivor. "The Lake House gives me a chance to give back to all those people who supported me," she said.

Grosse Pointe Rotarian Michelle Roberts gave a vocational talk at the Jan. 19, 2015, luncheon meeting or Rotary of Grosse Pointe. A management consultant with her own company, Technical Textile Solutions, Roberts spoke about the decline of textile manufacturing in the United States and its current comeback in niche products. "It's not ever going to be the way it was," she said, "but we are seeing some growth." She noted that apparel and footwear are a $354 billion consumer market in the United States, $1,100 per man, woman and child. Roberts was introduced by President Jon Gandelot. (Photo by John Minnis)

Rotary Club of Trenton - Kids Against Hunger
Here's some pictures from Kid's Against Hunger in Trenton. This project was partially funded through a grant from the Rotary Foundation and District 6400 helped over 100 students from Trenton High School's Interact Club, National Honor Society and friends of those students to package up 10,000 adult meals in less than one hour. The students were also helped by Trenton Rotary Members who helped organize and fund the project. - Bill Jasman
