The Rotary Club of Ludington earns money for every supporter who shops at smile.amazon.com/ch/27-4860991.
So far we've earned more than $200. If you're shopping, might as well help the club! The AmazonSmile Foundation recently surpassed $200 million in donations to charities worldwide! 

"The Four-Way Test, was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor when he was asked to take charge of a company that was facing bankruptcy.

One of the world’s most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is The Four-Way Test, which was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor (who later served as RI president) 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 company is credited to this simple philosophy. Adopted by Rotary in 1943, The Four-Way Test has been translated into more than a hundred languages and published in thousands of ways. 

 

The December "flash" project is help for Ludington Woods' residents -- CDs, DVDs and warm socks. Bring items to the Dec. 19 meeting, noon at the Ludington Area Center for the Arts. Thanks for the idea, club member Becky Foster, Ludington Woods' administrator. This meeting will feature speakers Shelby Soberalski and Madelyn Shamel of the Miss Ludington Area Scholarship Pageant. 
Our November Flash Service Project is helping by collecting food during our meeting Thursday, Nov. 21 to give to the Lakeshore Resource Network. Rush to the store, pretend that this is a Black Friday rehearsal...

Also, do not forget that this is the same day as our CLUB MINI-AUCTION. A taste of our Grand Event coming up next week just for us. Bring cash, check or credit card. All are welcome.
 
By the way, does anyone knows where our own "comfort station plaque" (privy plaque) is?  Whoever has it, please bring it along tomorrow so, following the tradition, can be auctioned off again this year.  
 
Remember, the Holiday Auction is at 6 p.m. Dec. 4 at Lincoln Hills. 
 
STRIVE stands for, "Students Taking Renewed Interest in the Value of Education." STRIVE is a program where Rotary Clubs work with a high school for the purpose of motivating students to improve their school performance during their senior year. The Rotary Club of Ludington has partnered with Ludington High School to create a student mentorship program that continues to successfully mentor students year after year. The major aspect of the program is that it is student driven, yet facilitated by Rotarians.
 
This year, Rotarians mentored several students throughout the year, with six (6) students successfully completing the program. The Club also issued scholarships to support STRIVE students in studies beyond high school. The Club held its annual banquet to honor the program's graduates on May 17, 2019 at PM Steamers Restaurant in Ludington.
The Rotary Club of Ludington has developed an extensive leadership succession plan that covers the next several years. Carlos Alvarado is The Rotary Club of Ludington's President-Elect for 2019-2020, and he has begun his Presidents-Elect Training Seminar (PETS) training program. Mr. Alvarado is pictured here with District 6290 administrator, Kathy Cone Hegedus.
Chikumbuso, a grassroots project located in Ng’ombe compound, provides hope and opportunity to some of the most vulnerable women and children in the township. Chikumbuso offers free education for children, adult training and capacity building through micro enterprise opportunities, youth life skills training and outreach to the elderly.
 
Chikumbuso means Remembrance. We remember those who have died, where we come from and to do for others. Our artists earn a living making beautiful, handcrafted, fashion products for sale both locally and internationally; our school and sponsorship programs educate students and help sustain families; and, our local staff provides counseling and encouragement for those affected by HIV/AIDS.
