2014 AuctionThe Rotary Club of Ludington held its 15th annual Holiday Auction, on Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014. It is too soon to report statistics, but estimates last night are that over 200 people attended.  One thing is certain:  everyone had a great time.  Proceeds from the Auction are used to fund the Club's STRIVE Program, which provides mentoring to Ludington High School students who may be at risk of not graduating.  

For Additional Information, call Tom Calabretta at 231-843-5685

July 4th 2014 Briefcase Brigade possibly may have been the best yet for the Ludington Rotary Club Troop.  This highly skilled, much practiced precision drill team, performed flawlessly throughout the Ludington Area Freedom Festival Grand Parade.

ImageWe started in December, 2012, and today we officially dedicated the new Avenue of Flags sign in City Park.  Special thanks to Tim Husted, owner of Surface Expressions for donating the granite, and finishing both the front and back; also to North Woods Signs for the etching of the text; and to Joe Stickney, with the City of Ludington and his crew who finished the work with angle-cut posts, bolting it all together.

With this sign, we hope our supporters will come to appreciate the work Rotary does because of the donations from them.  This is also a great example of the "Light Up Rotary" theme for the 2014-15 year, where the good works of our clubs should be seen in a brighter light, instead of under a basket.  Thanks to everyone in the club, too, for their patience and support.

The CIA recently admitted to aPhoto:  New York Times fake vaccination plan that gathered DNA samples from villagers while the CIA tried to track down Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan.  Since then, Pakistani tribal leaders and the Taliban in Pakistan, where polio still had a foothold, have convinced locals to shun the legitmate vaccine programs now trying to innoculate against polio.  The rise in polio cases in Pakistan has skyrocketed since then. 

The New York Times recently published an article about this.  You can read about this in more detail here:  http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/10/health/cia-vaccine-ruse-in-pakistan-may-have-harmed-polio-fight.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0
