Oil, Water, Wind, Sun and Fusion. Do you know where our electricity comes from?
We all know that all you have to do is turn on the switch and you have lights and heat for comfortable living. But what it takes to allow that switch to operate to our benefit, well there are a lot of considerations to be taken into account. Starting with the fuel that generating plants need to produce electricity come from the various sources.

At our lunch today we had Tera Shamey from Operation Common Good as our speaker and WOW did we find out about a great organization, whose principal "workers" are Farmington Public Schools students and our own children/grandchildren.
We had invited Tera to come speak to us about OCG as we had become familiar with their activities when we decided to hold a dinner event to assist the Farmington/Farmington Hills homeless and had difficulty in deciding which organization to work with. We found OCG and are now sponsoring a Spaghetti Dinner event on April 15th at the Orchard United Methodist Church. OCG is the perfect group for us to work with. Especially as it brings the students of FPS in touch with Rotary once again.
Tera gave a wonderful description of the FPS schoolchildren’s involvement in OCG and gave us even more encouragement for our event.
I’ll give you more information about the event as we close on April 15th Of course we would love for everyone to attend. Dinner will be from 5:00 pm until 8:00 pm at Orchard United Methodist Church.

A very timely update about the organization, very near and dear to his heart, was given to the club by our own Bruce Carr. Bruce has been very involved with the organization and over the last year +/- he has been instrumental in the relocation of the organization from Detroit to Southfield. Reminding us all, informatively, of the originators of the organization and some of the history about the founders, a visual walk through of the facility and descriptions of the work that is done, mostly by volunteers, it gave us all a boost of our energy to utilize this tremendous asset to benefit the needy in the world, wherever that may take us. But you can also benefit the local and state needs through programs that have been developed over the years. Literally from infancy, thousands of needy people have benefited from the work of World Medical Relief. You can learn more by coming to our club and letting Bruce know you are interested. Thank you Bruce.
