Club News

 
South Haven Rotary welcomes Dan Thompson as our newest member. Sponsor Mark Odland welcomed Dan into membership at our December 5 meeting.
 
South Haven Rotarians are pleased to continue their support of the South Haven Public School Foundation. A check for $5,000 was presented to Foundation representatives John Weiss and Jeff Postma by Dene Hadden who co-chaired our educational fundraiser last Spring. Our annual contributions, which now total $17,000, going into an endowment managed by the South Haven Community Foundation. Each year the foundation presents grants to teachers in support of innovative classroom projects. We earlier presented a similar $5,000 check to the Lake Michigan Community College Foundation to support students who attend the South Haven campus.

South Haven Rotarians were treated to a delicious breakfast and eye-opening student-led tours of the recently remodeled South Haven High School on Tuesday, Nov. 21. Thank you Superintendent and Rotarian Bob Herrera for hosting us. The breakfast prepared by Food Services Director Amy Nichols and her staff was fantastic. Our kids are being educated in a tremendous environment.
 
We grateful to the Rotary District Foundation for their support of our efforts to fund the installation of a fire detection system at the Historical Association of South Haven building (formerly Hartman School). At our Tuesday meeting, Tim Sullivan and Karl Kincade, representing the Foundation, presented the $2,500 grant to treasurer Bob Straits, matching our commitment of $2,500.
 
 
Thank you Dick Averill for your faithful longtime service to South Haven Rotary. Dick has been a Rotarian since 2000 and served as our president in 2006-07. We wish you and Carol the very best as you relocate to Chicago.
 
 
South Haven Rotary continues its support of the Southwest Michigan Land Conservancy. Grants Chair Art Ayers on October 31 presented a $350 grant to Conservancy Executive Director Peter TerLouw.
