Welcome to the Rotary Club of Comstock Park
Comstock Park Rotary Club is made up of business, professional, and community leaders. We meet regularly to plan and implement community service activities and network with each other . Our Rotary Club provides members with an opportunity to make a contribution to the Comstock Park community and to communities around the world. People join  Rotary for many reasons, including community involvement, personal development, professional networking, and camaraderie with fellow members. But perhaps the most important benefit is the satisfaction gained from making a real difference in the world.

Bob Homan and Christine Friedt, Plainfield TownshipOur guest speaker Thursday was Christine Friedt, director of the Plainfield Township Senior Adult Organization.  The group boasts over a thousand members, many of who are drawn from neighboring communities.  The group is funded through Plainfield Township, is supported through Northview Public Schools, as well as self supported. There is a $12.00 annual fee which helps cover the cost for the monthly news letter.  Christine was introduced by Plainfield Township Supervisor and Rotarian Bob Homan.
The speaker at Thursday's general meeting was David Kammer who with his wife Ruth talked about their involvement in the Emergency Food Pantry "Loaves and Fishes" in Belmont, Michigan.  The pantry is a joint venture of Holy Spirit Episcopal Church and Assumption Roman Catholic Church.  Referrals to the Food Pantry come through the North Kent Service Center located in Rockford.  The pantry is stocked and funded by private donations.  Mr. Kammer  demonstrated a modest example of servant leadership.
Thursday, April 18, the Comstock Park Rotary held he fifth annual "Senior Senior Prom" at the  Fine Arts Center at Comstock Park High School.  Over one hundred senior adults registered for this free event which was sponsored by local businesses.  The program was first offered five years ago by Alpine Floral, Amore Tratoria, and Beuschel's Funeral Home, all of whom continue to be the main sponsors for the event.  This year's theme was "Dance to the Bebop" and featured decorations and music from the fifties and sixties. 
 
Center pieces were so festive. A red car with flowers. And ice cream soda glasses with carnations and a cherry or strawberry on top with a straw. Just perfect for this event, and arranged by Alpine Floral and Gift Shop.  The food dishes provided by Amore Trattoria Italiana Restaurant were delicious and left no one hungry.  In keeping with the theme, members of the Beuschel family took photos with a Polaroid Camera.  Prizes were given for best dressed, and for winner of the cake walk. In addition, there were door prizes donated by local merchants. A disc jockey provided music from the fifties and sixties,  Best of all, there were so many smiling faces. This has turned into a great community event.  
How do the Comstock Park Rotary Club projects get funded?  Our main source of revenue comes from the sale of  barbecued chicken, ribs,or sausage that we offer our community three times a year at Dwight Lydell Park on West River Road. The dates in 2019 are Thursdays,  June 6,  July 11, and August 15.  More information with this year's prices will be forthcoming.  Have a meal in the park or take it home.  Times of the events are from 11:30 AM until 6:00 PM.  (Unless sold out before 6:00 PM.)
