Kristen Teasdale, from Growing Hope was our speaker at our Luncheon on May 18th. 
Kristen told us, "Growing Hope manages and maintains Farmers Markets to increase access to healthy food in our communities."
Kristen said, "Growing Hope’s commitment to providing improved lives and communities through greater access to healthy foods is most clearly demonstrated in the Farmers Markets we manage. By providing a venue for farmers, urban gardens, and other entrepreneurs, we contribute to local economies, developing our downtown's and strengthening our communities."

Lisa Bradley, the President of Ann Arbor Jaycees came to our May 18th lunch to accept our check to sponsor The Jaycees 4th of July Parade.
Lisa said, "The Ann Arbor Jaycees are young adults ages 21-40 who want to make a positive difference in our community. We're also friends who have a lot of fun together!"
"Our friendships grow as we participate in community service projects, plan seminars, go to socials, and team up for recreational activities."
"The Ann Arbor Jaycees is also a leadership training organization. Much of the leadership training is accomplished through planning and participating in projects and/or committees. Other leadership skills are learned by serving on the Board of Directors. The Ann Arbor Jaycees is not just a local group. We're also affiliated with the Michigan Jaycees, the U.S. Jaycees, and Junior Chamber International."
Please support The Ann Arbor Jaycees by going to the 4th of July Parade and their other community events.

At our lunch this afternoon we had Jeff Lichty from ShelterBox USA. ShelterBox is an organization that Rotary supports to help people in disasters around the world.
When people are plunged into crisis, normality is suspended. But good, quality shelter can cut through the chaos. ShelterBox provide the tools that enable people to rebuild homes and transform their lives.
ShelterBox sends out a tent and tools to the disaster area till the individuals can get a new place to live.

For the question that many of you have been asking about, where is the location going to be for the Fisher House in Ann Arbor? Thanks, Google Earth 
Smiles and anticipation abound from this picture of our four outbound  Ann Arbor Area exchange students.
(L-R): Charlotte Little (going to Poland), Fiona O'Rielly (going to Mexico), Emma Jane Rhodenhiser (going to Chile), and Eli Richards (going to Chile). Rotarian Jake McLouth (far right) is the co-chair for the youth exchange committee.
This photo was taken at a host family appreciation event in which the exchange students were honored and given their blazers which they will fill up with pins from around the world that they receive from other exchange students.
Good luck and safe travels to Charlotte, Fiona, Emma and Eli!
These photos are the inauguration of the WASH in school project on May 6th 2017. 
Contributions from Project Dignity were used to fund an additional project - our grant is enhanced by our great partnership with our international partners!
