United Way of the Lakeshore - Day of Caring

Our Rotary Club members were joined by Interact Clubs from several local high schools for this year's day of giving back to our community. Students from Muskegon, North Muskegon and Orchard View High Schools were our enthusiastic partners. We cleaned up yards for disabled veterans and planted trees at the Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve. You can share in the fun we had by watching our short slide show.

Arbor Day

Arbor Day 2021 resulted in 58 trees being planted by 18 volunteers. Tree varieties included Hackberry, River Birch, Red Oak, white Pine, Catalpa, and Poplar. It was a true community effort with help from the City of Muskegon, West Michigan Shoreline Regional Development Commission, Muskegon Rotary Club, Baker College of Muskegon Rotaract Club, Mona Shores Rotary Interact Club, and Muskegon High School.

Juneteenth Celebration 2022

Muskegon Rotary members joined the celebration in Mona Lake Park all weekend, June 17-19. We joined with 25 other organizations in sponsoring this event.

June 19, 1865, marks the day enslaved Black Americans in Galveston, Texas finally learned of their freedom. The news from federal troops came two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation, freeing slaves in all states.

Juneteenth has grown in the years since within communities and organizations throughout the country. Last year, President Joe Biden signed the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act officially making June 19 a federal holiday.
