On Thursday October 24, Rotary Assistant Governor Jim White recognized the Comstock Park Rotary for its contributions to the Foundation of Rotary International.  The club and members contributed $100 per member to the Foundation last year.  Local Foundation Chair Diane Van Epp was on hand to explain that these contributions could be directed to help fight Polio world wide, or could also be returned to our district in the form of grants.
Also recognized at the meeting was departing member Quynh Vu.  
Quynh has contributed a lot towards the success of our chapter,  Quiynh operated Comstock Park Family Chiropractic and is moving to Florida.  She introduced the club to the new chiropractor Brent Reeve, who we hope will be our newest member.  Quynh will surely be missed for the projects she undertook and her great personality.
Guest speaker for today Wendy Ogilvie, Director of Environmental Programs for the Grand Valley Metro Council.  

The Grand Valley Metropolitan Council is working with Grand Rapids Whitewater (GRWW) on this project through the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP). GRWW is an organization whose purpose is to restore the Grand River "to a more natural state for fish and creatures, remove dangerous dams, and create ways for people to access and use the river. Through ongoing scientific study, planning, design, and working group meetings with federal, tribal, and city representatives, a full river revitalization project is underway with expected social, environmental, and economic benefits".
