Our Stories
Fellow Rotarian Jessica Keyser, Director of the Grosse Pointe Public Library, was the guest speaker at the Oct. 11 evening meeting of Rotary of Grosse Pointe at the The War Memorial. She was welcomed by President John Maliszewski and introduced by fellow Rotarian Paul Rentenbach, who serves on the library's board of trustees. Keyser's talk was about the library's recently adopted Strategic Plan.

While on sabbatical, President Elect Richard Yeager-Stiver spent some time with Brittish Rotarians at the London Rotary club.  In following the long-standing Rotary tradition where clubs exchange flags, Richard left one of ours and returned with one of theirs. 
The long wait is over as Lee Johnson was able to pick the joker. Congratulations! Thank you to Charvat the Florist for the beautiful flower arrangement.
Our very own George McMullen will be partnered with professional dancer, Rae Hines, as he competes against four other couples at a fund raiser for Full Circle. 
Susan Mozena, Mary Tipp, Ron Vitale and Roger Hull participated in the District Governors Golf Outing and our very own Roger Hull took home the award for the Men's Longest Drive.
You can't beat Lake St Clair. A few fellow Grosse Pointe Rotarians along with our exchange student, enjoyed a boat ride to the DYC for dinner - just for fun and fellowship. The Detroit Yacht Club on Belle Isle is looking good!
Dr. Lisa A. Manz-Dulac and Marty Petz were the guest speakers at the Sept. 4 evening meeting of Rotary of Grosse Pointe at the The War Memorial. Their topic was HART — Haiti and Africa Relief Team — out of St. Paul on the Lake Catholic Church in Grosse Pointe Farms. The speakers were welcomed by club President John Maliszewski. 
HART was created in response to an earlier devastating event in Haiti — the 2010 earthquake. Moved by compassion, the Rev. Sama Muma, assistant pastor at St. Paul, and some parishioners with diverse skills, traveled to Haiti to provide medical aid, medical supplies and physical labor. Later in the year, the group formed the nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization HART.
Dr. Manz-Dulac and Mr. Petz discussed their recent trips, challenges and needs.

In addition to collecting supplies and funds to support the Northeast Guidance Center's Back To School program, several Rotarians volunteered their time to help setup for the big day.
