The North Manchester club is collaborating with Mickman Brothers in Ham Lake, Minn. The company specializes in high quality, fresh evergreen holiday decorations for youth groups, churches and other nonprofit groups. After hand cutting and handcrafting its products, Mickman closely inspects every wreath that goes out its doors. If any product arrives in unsatisfactory condition, it guarantees it will replace it at no cost.
 
A third option for ordering, the Holiday Gift Program, allows customers to fill out an order form, write their personal message on a greeting card and give their payment to a Rotarian to complete the order. These holiday gifts are delivered via FedEx by Dec. 11. 
 
For each Holiday Gift order, Mickman pays to plant a tree in a national or state forest in honor of the gift recipient. To date, more than 750,000 seedlings have been planted in 49 states.
 
All evergreens for the decorations are harvested in a sustainable manner.

Rotary Vice President Joel Eikenberry is in charge of the wreath program.

The club also does larger projects to improve the quality of life in North Manchester, such as raising enough money locally and through a Rotary district grant to put in landscaping at the canoe launch at Ogan’s Landing on the Eel River.
 
It contributed to the Manchester Early Learning Center Building Fund, developed the Robin’s Way walking trail on East Street and erected a gazebo next to the Thomas Marshall House on Market Street.
