Our Rotary club helped serve the meals at Camp Daggett for the incoming foreign exchange students who are placed with families by local Rotary Clubs so the students can attend high school.  A BIG THANK YOU goes out to all the helpers and especially the 5 people who came from the Charlevoix Coast Guard Station! Thanks go out to member Mark Andresky for organizing all the food and volunteers!

Mike Hinkle, President and CEO of Charlevoix State Bank was our speaker today. He is the coach of the Charlevoix High School wrestling team and gave a nice presentation on the team which has won many awards in regional and state competitions. Mike said the students trained hard over the summer and they are looking forward to a successful year. (PHOTO: Mike is on left shown with club president Bryan Lindfors).

Mrs. Vondra has taught special education, kindergarten, and first grade at Charlevoix Elementary School for almost twenty-five years.  Mr. Haan shared that "she has an amazing way of making each student feel that they are special and make each family feel confident that their child is in good hands". Please join us in congratulating Mrs. Vondra on this outstanding award!

Kent Knorr, our out-going President, recognized our 2021-2022 Board of Directors and Officers for a fine job during the pandemic, a very difficult time.  
We were all especially thankful to Rick Golding, who extended his term as President and Board position as Past President during an unexpected vacancy.
