Rotary gives to local charities

Wow!  With this year's Venison For Manna Project our club has collected almost 8 tons of venison for distribution to 37 food pantries and meal programs around Northern Michigan.  What a super project and special thanks to the hunters (who donate the venison), the processors (who donate the processing), Jays Sporting Goods (for donating a $500 gift card) and our club members for the promotion and implementing this project.  Pictured is this year's $500 gift card recipient Bill Marshall, along with Processor Clint Krueger, Jays Rep Mark Copeland and members of the Petoskey Sunrise Rotary Club.  Bill Marshall donated an entire buck this year to the program.
Another great program at our weekly club meetings.  Dave Meyer arranged for Keith Gave, author of “The Russian Five” non-fiction book about how the Detroit Red Wings obtained five Russian hockey players to play for the Red Wings to share his (and others) amazing role in this process.  A great story of espionage, defection, bribery and courage. 
This year's Parade of Cool was a great success with outstanding vehicles, an airplane carousel ride, a new standing frame for our club banner... and breakfast! Thanks to all our participants. Check out the photos here.
A club-sponsored donation was made to The Rotary Foundation on behalf of and to honor; Sarah George for the immeasurable amount of service given to our club every day, and to Ben Slocum and Peter Manthei of Beards Brewery, for their generosity in supporting the club (really nice digs to meet in)  and for the community of Petoskey.  The Paul Harris Award represents a $1,000 donation to the Rotary International Foundation, which supports projects all over the world.  Thank you Sarah, Ben and Peter...we are very grateful for all that you do!
