22-year member of the Birmingham Rotary Club, Patrick Grady, was conferred the 2013 Spirit of Rotary Award at a wonderful year end celebration hosted by John Westerheide at his home. A huge turnout of club members and family participated. BBQ and beverages added the right notes along with an utterly perfect evening of weather. In addition, President Elect David Zimmer presented President Chris Winans a beautiful wood plaque acknowledging her year of serving our club as president. Chris, in turn, presented David with a pin inducting him as our club President. A good time was had by all! Congrats, Patrick, David, and Chris!
Hello Rotarians! Let's all plan on showing President Chris how much we appreciate all she's accomplished in her year of service as president to our Rotary Club by attending the 2013 Year-End Party! Bring your spouse! Every year we gather at this time to celebrate and acknowledge our president with the year end President's Party. This year, Rtn. John Westerheide has graciously opened his beautiful home (again!) to our event. We have a down-home style BBQ with all the fixin's. And a surprise or two in store! All for only $25 per person! So Save the Date! And let Linda Hatfield or Mark Farlow know of your plans to attend as soon as possible-we want to provide our caterer with a head-count. The festivities start at 6 pm on Thursday, June 13th. We'll see you then!
John lives at 1005 Worthington which is north of 14 Mile Road and west of Southfield Road.
Birmingham Rotary Club is delighted to announce their newest members: Ryan Quinn, sponsored by Rtn. Steven Volk, and Caitlin Falenski, sponsored by Rtn. Charles Wickins. Congrats to all four of you!
Pamela Good, executive director of the Beyond Basics Literacy program, spoke to Birmingham Rotary Club today. Her host was Rtn. Charles Wickins.
Next Financial Literacy service project is March 15th.
This spring will be our third year of financial literacy presentations to the seventh graders at Davison Middle School in Detroit. We have been very well received and are making a difference to the students and their parents.
In addition to the six presentations to the students, we also make three presentations to the parents, the first of which was made in November and the second this past week. Please see Calli Hayes Leslie’s e-mail below for her assessment of the outstanding job done by Linda Hatfield, Ron Ezell and George Stern.
In that we expect to divide the students into groups of about 10-12 and team teach them with two presenters to each group, we will need about twelve “instructors” for each week’s presentation. And please don’t be concerned if you have not participated before as we will team you with an experienced instructor.
The six meetings are scheduled at noon on the following Fridays:
Please respond to Richard Shapack – Shapack@sgzlaw.com to sign up to participate in this important and rewarding activity. Information on where to meet to drive together to Davison School will be forwarded separately.
