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.
On June 9, 2022 at the Rotary Club of  Ann Arbor North Lunch Meeting, two workers from Ele's Place talked to the club. 
In 1991, a group of committed community volunteers in Lansing, MI, came together to support children in the area who had experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or someone else close to them. Named for Helen Louise Snow Stover, nicknamed Ele, who had died at just 11 months old, initial programming at Ele's Place served many children in the Lansing area, including Ele's three oldest siblings. 
Ele's Place is a non-profit, community-based organization dedicated to creating awareness of and support for grieving children and their families. 
Ele's Places core values are:
  1. They believe in creating and bolstering strong relationships; among our team members, between our team and the stakeholders we serve and with the families we serve. Additionally,  they seek collaboration within the nonprofit, private sector, bereavement and children’s supportive services space.  
  2. They believe in fostering well-being and health; for the children and teens we serve, as well as for our own team, and our communities as a whole. 
  3. They believe in providing service with the utmost integrity and accountability; both through the ethical standards we uphold, and through keeping each other responsible to these standards. 
  4. They believe in excellence and innovation; while providing a program with fidelity to and quality of proven practices, they also allow ourselves the opportunity to grow, learn and improve upon all we do.  
  5. They believe in honoring and promoting diversity; by respecting all races, ethnicities, gender expressions, sexual orientation, socio-economic backgrounds, religions and abilities. We strive to reflect our communities in the families we serve and the members of our team.   
This was the last Lunch Meeting for Pres. Tammy so thank you to Tammy for being President this year. Next Rotary year, starting in July, Bob S. will be President. Good Luck Bob.
At the May 26, 2022, Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North Lunch Meeting, Trinity Schindel (Daughter of Rotarian Bryan Schindel) talked about her upcoming Rotary Youth Exchange year of studies in Germany 
This past week Trinity, just got back from Ontario Canada, in which she had a Rotary Youth Exchange training. At the exchange she learned a lot about the exchange and how to handle culture shock which happens when you go to a different Country.
Rotary Youth Exchange is where students learn a new language, discover another culture, and truly become global citizens. Trinity is sponsored by Ann Arbor North and is going to Germany. Germany was not Trinity's first choice, but she is very happy to go. She has already met with her first Exchange Family in Germany and they speak English. Her German is not very good but Rotary does have training in Germany for her when she arrives.
Trinity will be going to Germany in August and will stay a full academic year, she will attend a local school and live with multiple host families.
Trinity said she is very appreciative to Tammy and the rest of our club for giving her this opportunity of studying abroad.
At the April 13, 2022 Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North Lunch Meeting at our new meeting location University Living of Ann Arbor we had Manish Mehta talk about his Humanitarian Award from The Ann Arbor Rotary Club.
Manish Mehta received the Robert S Northrup Humanitarian Award from the Ann Arbor Club earlier in the month for his work in international projects. 
He started the meeting with a brief biography of his early life and then went on to the project he has been involved with:
Manish's last remark was to thank the Club of Ann Arbor North for all our participation and tell us how much he appreciated what we have done.
Also at the meeting Bob Specht talked more about the Tote Bag Project starting up in June.
  • Dexter and Chelsea will participate in this project
  • Chelsea Rotary has a project involving selling handmade, free trade African baskets, and Motown Soup at the Chelsea Farmers’ Market. 
  • RCAAN is now considering the alternative of completely combining the efforts of our club, with those of the Chelsea Club, and possibly even with the Dexter Club. 
  • Bob is now looking into the possibility of reserving and/or renting a table at the Ypsilanti Farmers’ Market where we would be able to sell the baskets and the soup, either give away or seek a small donation (e.g. $1.00) for each tote bag, and provide shopper’s with the opportunity to sign up for our club’s e-newsletter and/or to make a donation to Rotary’s international efforts to eradicate polio in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
  • All plans for this project  are tentative. Planning is still in progress.
On April 23, 2022, the Rotary District 6380 celebrated Earth Day by having an Environmental Workday at Vestergaard Farms located at 4408 S. Wagner Rd. Ann Arbor.
Scott Nelson talked about Rotary's new seventh Area of Focus Environmental and a project he participates in called Plant Based Diet.
Max Vestergaard talked about the Vestergaard Farm. It is a family run farm which practices pasture-based farming with rotational grazing, prioritizing the well-being of our livestock. Their animals are raised humanely, sustainably and processed locally.
​T.C. Collins then talked about Willow Run Acres and how he started his organization. Willow Run Acres offers educational/gardening classes for all skills/age levels, garden safety classes, yearly Potato Day Programs, food distribution, service the community with weekly/monthly clean-up sessions, gardening wellness sites, role modeling/mentor opportunities, and other community engagements.
After the three talked the group went out to T.C. 's gardening beds and we wedded, mulched and moved beds.
The day ended with a lunch with Jimmy Jone's Sandwich's, chips and cookies.

At the Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North Lunch Meeting on April 14, 2022, Bob Specht talked about a new RCAAN project that will start in June. 
The project will hopefully get a District Grant and involve other Rotary Clubs. Bob described, clubs will be going to Farmer Markets in the area, using a display table we will give out free Rotary Bags to customers to use while they shop the Market. In the bags will have Rotary Club and Rotary information telling customers about Rotary. 
Manish Mehta also presented a plaque from a Rotary Project Micro Bank in Africa that started Matt Copeland's year as President and Steve Lessens continued the project last year.
Lastly at the meeting Norma Sarkar announced that Dr. Manish Mehta will receive the Robert Northrup Award given out by Rotary Club of Ann Arbor.  The formal presentation will be on April 27th at a meeting of the Downtown Ann Arbor  rotary club meeting.

At the Rotary Club of Ann Arbor North Lunch Meeting on March 24, 2022, Michelle Phalen from the Alzheimer's Association talked about Alzheimer's.
Michelle said "Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that affects memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms eventually grow severe enough to interfere with daily tasks."
There are 10 Early Signs and Symptoms of Alzheimer's
  1. Memory loss that disrupts daily life: One of the most common signs of Alzheimer’s disease, especially in the early stage, is forgetting recently learned information. Others include forgetting important dates or events, asking the same questions over and over, and increasingly needing to rely on memory aids (e.g., reminder notes or electronic devices) or family members for things they used to handle on their own.
  2. Challenges in planning or solving problems: Some people living with dementia may experience changes in their ability to develop and follow a plan or work with numbers. They may have trouble following a familiar recipe or keeping track of monthly bills. They may have difficulty concentrating and take much longer to do things than they did before.
  3. Difficulty completing familiar tasks: People with Alzheimer's often find it hard to complete daily tasks. Sometimes they may have trouble driving to a familiar location, organizing a grocery list or remembering the rules of a favorite game.
  4. Confusion with time or place: People living with Alzheimer's can lose track of dates, seasons and the passage of time. They may have trouble understanding something if it is not happening immediately. Sometimes they may forget where they are or how they got there.
  5. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships: For some people, having vision problems is a sign of Alzheimer's. This may lead to difficulty with balance or trouble reading. They may also have problems judging distance and determining color or contrast, causing issues with driving. 
  6. New problems with words in speaking or writing: People living with Alzheimer's may have trouble following or joining a conversation. They may stop in the middle of a conversation and have no idea how to continue or they may repeat themselves. They may struggle with vocabulary, have trouble naming a familiar object or use the wrong name (e.g., calling a "watch" a "hand-clock").
  7. Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps: A person living with Alzheimer's disease may put things in unusual places. They may lose things and be unable to go back over their steps to find them again. He or she may accuse others of stealing, especially as the disease progresses.
  8. Decreased or poor judgment: Individuals may experience changes in judgment or decision-making. For example, they may use poor judgment when dealing with money or pay less attention to grooming or keeping themselves clean.
  9. Withdrawal from work or social activities: A person living with Alzheimer’s disease may experience changes in the ability to hold or follow a conversation. As a result, he or she may withdraw from hobbies, social activities or other engagements. They may have trouble keeping up with a favorite team or activity.
  10. Changes in mood and personality: Individuals living with Alzheimer’s may experience mood and personality changes. They can become confused, suspicious, depressed, fearful or anxious. They may be easily upset at home, with friends or when out of their comfort zone.
The Walk to end Alzheimer's is on October 9, 2022 at Pioneer High School. Visit to register, or contact Sue Prynn at

Rotary International Statement on Ukraine and Russia Crisis:
It is a tragic and sad time for the people of Ukraine and the world.
At Rotary, we are deeply concerned by the deteriorating situation in Ukraine and the escalating loss of life and humanitarian hardship there. Continued military action against Ukraine will not only devastate the region, but also risk spreading tragic consequences across Europe and the world.
As one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, we have made peace the cornerstone of our global mission. We join the international community in calling for an immediate cease fire, withdrawal of Russian forces, and a restoration of diplomatic efforts to resolve this conflict through dialogue.
In the past decade, Rotary clubs in Ukraine, Russia and nearby countries have transcended national differences and have actively engaged in peace-building projects to promote goodwill and to marshal assistance for the victims of war and violence.
Today, our thoughts are with our fellow Rotary members and others in Ukraine coping with these tragic events. Rotary International will do everything in its power to bring aid, support and peace to the region.

The Origins of the Four-Way Test
The Four-Way Test was adopted by Rotary in 1943, but it had been around since 1932 when it was coined by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy.This 24-word test for employees to follow in their business and professional lives became the guide for sales, production, advertising, and all relations with dealers and customers, and the survival of the Club Aluminum company is credited to this simple philosophy. After it was adopted by Rotary, the Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. Click here  for the Story Behind the Four-Way Test, in Taylor’s own words.
On January 13, 2022, Scott Nelson gave a presentation called "Taking Climate Action & Protecting The Environment With Plant-Rich Diets". 
Before Scott's presentation Pres. Tammy announced the RCAAN will have a Youth Exchange Student this year. Trinity Schindel will be studying in Germany this year.
After this special announcement Scott began his presentation. Plant-based or plant-forward eating patterns focus on foods primarily from plants. This includes not only fruits and vegetables, but also nuts, seeds, oils, whole grains, legumes, and beans. It doesn’t mean that you are vegetarian or vegan and never eat meat or dairy. Rather, you are proportionately choosing more of your foods from plant sources.
Scott said, emissions from animal Agriculture are a major source of destroying the earth. The sources of emissions from animal agriculture is:
  • Methane: Animals
    • Burps: At least one thing is true for cows around the world: They all burp. All the time. This incessant belching expels an impressive volume of greenhouse gases—mostly methane and carbon dioxide. Added up, burps from cows account for 26 percent of the United States' total methane emissions. 
    • Manure Logons: Manure is the decomposed form of dead plants and animals.
  • Nitrous Oxide: Feed Crops
    • Nitrogen Fertilizer
    • Manure as Fertilizer
  • CO2: Land Use & Other
    • Land Use Change (Deforestation)
    • Fertilizer and Pesticide Manufacture
    • Transporting and Processing Animal Feed
Plant-Rich Diets would also reduce water pollution. It can get rid of fertilizers (Nitrogen, Phosphorus), pesticides, herbicides, manure, other animal waste, hormones, viruses, antibiotic-resistant bacteria, chemical additives, cleaning agents, heavy metals, silage leachate, etc..
Animal Agriculture emits 53 percent  of the global total of emissions. Fewer livestock animals mean less need for food and less nitrogen and manure use. 
What farmers can do to help is to grow oats, hemp, fava beans, vegetables, mushrooms, peas, nuts, bamboo, etc.. They can also set aside land for carbon sequestration, biodiversity protection, water restoration, etc..
A Plant-Rich Diet also lowers the risk of Chronic Diseases like:
  • Heart Disease 
  • Type 2 Diabetes 
  • Obesity
  • Cancer 
Go to to get information on the Plant Rich Diet Challenge which Scott, Manish and Brianna took a big part in.
