Muskegon Rotary Youth Exchange in local media

Kristi Pawlak authored a fine article on our Rotary Youth Exchange program in the August issue of Norton Shores Living magazine. Published by Best Version Media, Mark Alpher, one of our own Muskegon Rotarians is on their production team. Kristi shared our Youth Exchange efforts and successes with a wide swath of Muskegon County residents who will benefit from the story. Muskegon Rotary efforts benefit from notice in local media. Thank you for the motivation you continually add to our youth programs Kristi. Our outreach is growing and after 107 years, we still have new people to meet and positive change to chase. Kristi says, "The youth are our future. If all of our young adults could go abroad as Rotary Exchange Students, we would have no wars."

Muskegon Rotary Harvest Festival

SAVE THE DATE: Harvest Fest, Rotary's newest event and fall fundraiser for our Foundation, is 5-9 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 26. We'll gather downtown at Baker College's Culinary Institute of Michigan (CIM) where students will prepare and serve a variety of delicious appetizers and desserts. There will be a small and unique selection of silent auction items, a 50/50 raffle, wine/beer/soft drinks, music, and more! Tickets are $65 until Sept. 22 then $75 starting Sept. 23 until Oct. 25. Each ticket includes one free beverage, delicious fall-themed food, and a signature Harvest Fest glass. Only a limited number of tickets will be sold, and prices will increase as we move into fall so get 'em early! We're proud to partner with Read Muskegon as our non-profit recipient for this event. This partnership continues our focus on the importance of literacy in our community highlighted by this past Rotary Year and President Jane. More info to come; any questions can be directed to co-chairs Dave Alexander and Roger Morgenstern.
