Rotary Island work bee and beautiful new landscaping.
Our club gathered with current and former members to celebrate 100 years of service to the Alpena area.  We were treated to the beautiful space at Art in the Loft, fantastic food and ice sculptures by Jon Benson, music courtesy of Kat Tomaszewksi, delicious desserts from Annette Carlson, Refreshments by Party On LLC and beautiful floral centerpieces by Classic Designs.  We were pleased to honor long term member Ralph Diethelm with an Honorary membership in the club, and enjoyed the Emcee skills of Mike Kelly.  Many thanks to the committee members: John Benson, Ann Burton, Mary Cosbitt, Ann Diamond, Mary Dunckel, Jackie Nicoll and Wendy Servia.
Our Rotary auction is online NOW through May 19 at 8 pm.  Join us for a fun live closing-of-the-auction event on May 19 at Mangos downtown  - no tickets required.  We are raising funds for an EXPANSION OF THE SPLASH PARK, so bid often and a lot!!
Due to the cancellation of our in-person auction, we have rescheduled a new online auction to be held May 19, 2022.  Stay tuned for more information!
We created two trees for the season of light at the Jesse Besser Museum.  This information is from the Besser Museum Facebook post.  Proud to be a Rotarian!
On Saturday, November 20, a group of Rotarians added Christmas to the Island by decorating our gazebo and other island features.  It's simply stunning!  Make sure and stop by the Island after dark to check out their fine work!
Rotarian Mike Kelly caught these beautiful shots of Rotary Island at night.  Keep checking to see what we have in store for the holidays!
In August, we had a great turnout for planting new landscaping on the Island.  The 100th anniversary island improvements will continue through next year.  Keep watching for more photos!
We had a great turnout for our annual meeting that gave a huge "thanks" to outgoing president Wendy and a great big "welcome" to incoming president Joanne.  We were pleased to recognize Chuck Sherwin as our Rotarian of the Year, and further recognize Danielle Green as our Rotarian of the Year for 2020-2021 since Covid kind of stole her thunder!
