What Is Rotary?
Rotary is an international volunteer service organization whose purpose is to bring together people from all walks of life in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in life, and to advance goodwill and peace around the world. 

It is a secular organization open to all people regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, or political preference. 

There are 1.2 million individuals worldwide called Rotarians who have been giving back to the community for over a 100 years! Isn't it time for you to give back?
Mission And Vision Statement
Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North Mission Statement
The Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North is a service group dedicated to the complementary purposes of fellowship and service to others, accomplished through a variety of local and international projects with broad member participation in partnership with other people and organizations, in the spirit of Rotary International.
Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North Vision Statement
The Rotary Cub of Ann Arbor North envisions a club of vibrant, active people who enjoy their membership. We seek to recruit new like minded members to help us take and maintain a leadership role in our community and in Rotary, demonstrating our commitment to action and ideals.
Community Action Network (CAN) partners with children, youth, and families from under-resourced Washtenaw County (Michigan) neighborhoods to create better futures for themselves, and improve the communities in which they live.
Community Action Network strives to:
  • Prepare youth to fulfill their academic potential and become successful, self-sufficient adults.
  • Assist families in meeting their basic needs and create better futures for themselves.
  • Create and maintain clean, safe and supportive neighborhoods where families can thrive.
The above CAN goals pair nicely with our Rotary goals and objectives.  Rotary Club Ann Arbor North has a long history of supporting Community Action Network especially through our involvement with the Green Baxter Court community.
While our involvement has changed somewhat during the Covid-19 crisis, our commitment to this organization and community has continued.  RCAAN requested both adult and child face masks for Community Action Network from the Rotary 100K mask challenge project.   In all, 310 adult masks and 300 child masks were donated to CAN at the request of Rotary Club Ann Arbor North.
We had to forgo our typical fall trip to the apple orchard this year.  Instead, RCAAN covered the cost of a harvest party at the Green Baxter Court community house.  The party was planned and carried out by the CAN staff and paid for by our club.  One of our club members was able to participate in the outdoor event.  The caramel apples with extra toppings were tasty and the carved pumpkins were interesting!
December holidays will be more difficult for the CAN families this year because of Covid-19.  Loss of work hours, less access to food support, and other stressors may mean that parents have to limit holiday gift purchases for their children.  Rotary Club Ann Arbor North has typically sponsored several children through the CAN holiday gift program.  This year, the club increased the support for this program by sponsoring 5 children. 
Rotary Club Ann Arbor North looks forward to continued involvement with Community Action Network and Green Baxter Court.

Good day Fellow Rotarians
Did you know that YOUR Rotary District 6380 has formed a COVID-19 Disaster District Mask Initiative to help our health care workers since back in April 2020? 
We started this by applying and receiving a a $25,000.00 Rotary International Disaster Grant, as well as the District has put up an additional $20,000.00. With this seed money we have been purchasing FDA approved masks to be distributed to front line workers through out our district.
We have set up a special COVID-19 Disaster Fund donation link ( where individual clubs and members can assist in providing much needed personal protection equipment to our front line workers by clicking on the donate button.
Our goal is to get 100,000 masks donated throughout Rotary District 6380.  Every donation, gets us closer to our goal!
Also we have recently expanded this initiative to also be a District Wide Fundraiser partnering with GLOW a women's empowerment organization in India to have masks made for sale and distribution with the Rotary logo.
