Stories
On November 29, 2018, Linda Sproul, talked about Concordia University in Ann Arbor, at Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North's Luncheon.
 
Linda said, "similar to Rotary, service is an integral part of the daily life and mission at Concordia University. Not only is service a core value, as we strive to service others in caring, helpful, and knowledgeable ways, but our mission is not fulfilled until our students go out into the Church and the world as servants of Christ."
 
Linda gave us a brief history of Concordia. On September 30, 1962, Lutherans from across Michigan gathered on the grounds of the former Earhart estate in Ann Arbor to install the cornerstone of a building that would soon become the centerpiece of a new college. 
 
The institution was originally established as Concordia Lutheran Junior College, but underwent multiple name changes over time. The institution changed its name to Concordia College when it began offering four-year degree programs in 1976, and ultimately became Concordia University Ann Arbor in 2001.
 
In July 2013, a strategic partnership between CUAA and Concordia University Wisconsin became official. Within the first years after the merger, the campus underwent major renovations and enhancements, including to residence halls, the student union, athletic fields (including a new football field), and the dining hall.
 
In 2015, the university purchased a former law school building located just across the street form RCAAN's meeting place (Holiday Inn, Near the U of M). The “North Building” now houses the campus’ School of Nursing, which will teach the students in Concordia's newly approved Physician Assistant Studies Program.
 
Linda said, "due expanding academic programs and athletic offerings, enrollment reached an all-time high at Concordia University Ann Arbor during the 2017-18 academic year with a total of 1,081 students. Since 2013, CUAA’s enrollment has grown more than 60 percent, and in 2017 it earned a spot among the fastest-growing private universities in the Midwest."

In addition to Linda Sproul's presentation on Concordia University, we had a few other special announcements at Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North's Luncheon, on November 29, 2018. 
 
Dick Rosenfeld from Rotary Club of Jackson MI, attended the lunch and announced that he just celebrated his 53rd anniversary in Rotary.
 
Also, children of American Heritage Girls said, thank you for the Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North's donation of $500.
 
The children filled 74 boxes for Operation Christmas Child. One item in the boxes was 24 Adidas Soccer Balls and a pump, which AA North's donation helped purchase (Click here for what else was in boxes).
 
Lastly at the luncheon, ADG Collyer Smith presented, Past President and RCAAN Member's, the Presidential Citation Award.
 
Collyer said, "the Presidential Citation Award is a very big achievement, out of the 56 clubs in Rotary District 6380 only 8 received the award for year 2017-2018."

At Thursday's November 15, 2018, Rotary Club of Ann Arbor Luncheon Rotarian Jeff Crause, Finance Adviser from Edward Jones talked about Finance and the Stock Market.
 
Jeff's, biggest point in his talk was that the stock market is cyclical. Cyclical means a business or stock income, value, or earnings fluctuate widely in the economy or a cycle of the seasons. This means in the stock market your investments will always have highs and lows. 
 
Jeff showed the club some charts and graphs that showed how the market is cyclical. So do not always just sell off a stock because a down turn.

On Saturday, November 3, 2018 Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North had a fun and entertaining fundraiser called the Mad Hatter Masquerade Dinner Party.
 
We had terrific and funny performances by Tea and Whimsy from Metro Detroit improv, a local improvisers who participate in the community improv meetup group on a weekly basis.
 
Mad Hatter Mad Men performed dinner music. They are part of the Cabaret Cast of 25 which will be appearing at the Village Theater in Canton on February 6th 2018, proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.
 
We selected the raffle winners and the best costume of the night. The performers of Tea and Whimsy judged the best costume contest, which the lady in the Cleopatra costume won.
 
Lastly, the band called Jeff and The Deck Chairs, performed so the audience could dance.
 
Thank you, to all that performed and attended the Mad Hatter Masquerade Dinner Party. Stay tuned for next years RCAAN Dinner Party. It will be just as great!
