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?

On August 16, 2018, Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North speaker was Olivia Habart. She is the founder of, A2 Entrepreneurs Club at Washtenaw Community College.
Olivia, said, "I started A2 Entrepreneurs because when I started at WCC, I did not see many clubs at the school and I thought that was wrong." She explained, that at every meeting, she has a Business Owner talk about their businesses and entrepreneurship. 
Olivia, has already started a couple clubs at Washtenaw Community College and she said she would be willing to help get more started.

At Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North's Luncheon, on July 26, 2018, Madison Vorva talked about her life. 
When Madison was in Girl Scouts she was very involved in selling Girl Scout cookies. Then she noticed one day that one of the ingredients was Palm Oil.
She was fighting against the use of Palm Oils, since she saw a photo of a dead Orangutan, because of the deforestation to produce Palm Oil. She was successful and was honored by the United Nations as a "North America Forest Hero".
Madison's idol was Dr. Jane Goodall's. One day she had the honor to meet Jane and Madison was given the opportunity to work on the National Youth Leadership Council for Root's and Shoot's, Dr. Jane Goodall's organization for young people.

This fall, Madison will start pursuing her master’s degree in environmental policy at Cambridge University in England. Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North, Rotary Club of Ann Arbor, Rotary Club of Plymouth, District 6400, and District 6380 will fund a Rotary Global Grants Scholarship  to support her studies at Cambridge.

Madison, is very appreciative of the Scholarship and wants to thank and stay in touch with all the partners, that gave her the Scholarship.


This is Vern Hutton, last month he ordered Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North shirts for club members that wanted one. He said, "this is my contribution to the club since I can not do so much due to my age".  Although President Joyce said after that, He does contribute  and all RCAAN member's makes contribution to the club.
Diane Sheffrey, was not able to attend Presidents Brunch on July 1st. This photo is Peg Windsor presenting her with a plaque for her hard work last year as our Youth Exchange Director and being Adel's Host Mother for many months.
