Another cool addition to our community!!!
Join Rotarian Mark Thomas for a preview of The Pontiac Transportation Museum on Friday, July 27th from 4pm - 9pm at 250 W Pike Street. 
Last Thursday, we traveled to Motor City Burgers & Co.  All told, there were 7 of us, 6 of whom gracefully had to put up pictures of my newly adopted dog.  Heather was our server and she kept the drinks flowing (iced tea etc.).  The place is known for their burgers, so that definitely was the order of the day.  They did not disappoint, they were juicy and perfectly cooked.  Also saw a few huge salads, and maybe a pita.  Rotary Eatings # 1 in the books.
Our thanks to President Tim for a fabulous Bocce Ball!  The Italian fare prepared by Chef Daniel Martinez was a great compliment to the festive music and setting.  Some 70 guests joined us in thanking President Tim for his leadership, while passing the gavel to incoming president John Schodowski.  Our club was pleased to present the prestigious Paul Harris Fellowship to community advocate, Michael McGuinness. Michael truly lives by the Rotary motto, Service Above Self.  Along with the PHF recognition, President Tim presented Michael with a custom hub cap as a thank you for his commitment.  What a grand evening of Rotary fellowship and fun!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Rotarian Richard Berkfield braved the cold and rain to represent our Pontiac Rotary Club at the 36th annual Hunger Walk to benefit Lighthouse of Oakland County.  The walk helps fund the increase in food demand the Lighthouse pantries experience during the summer months when students have less access to school meals.
 
Thanks to Berk's efforts, the Pontiac Rotary Club was celebrated as the Hunger Walk All Star ---- Pontiac Rotary (ie, Berk!) raised the most money of any single organization!  We appreciate Berk's efforts as well as the generosity of many Rotarians PLUS Berk's circle of generous friends.  Fewer Pontiac children will go hungry thanks to YOU!
