Happy New Year!  I'm sick of hearing that phrase already. Here's a good reply:  So what's up with you in twenty twenty two?  Join us each and almost every Friday for The Livingston Sunrise Rotary Club breakfast, held at the LESA building in Howell.
 
Socialization begins about 7:15 am
The meeting rings in promptly at 7:30. Please help set up and help tear down. Bring someone to breakfast as a guest. Pay Madam Treasurer only $5. Do NOT pass Go, do NOT collect $150. Late? Cough up a buck to the Fine Sheriff.

 

 

BRING at least $5 for the 50/50 DRAWING.  (The POT is at $740 and growing... there are about 12 cards left.)  Exact change is appreciated! If you buy one set of tickets, the odds are about 1 in 12 your number will be called. Wouldn't you like to double the chances with a 1 to 6 odds? Just purchase two sets of tickets for $10.

You have a better chance of picking the Ace of Hearts - a one in 12 chance this week. Play strategically! Will it come down to the last card again? 

Click here to join us via ZOOM:  https://zoom.us/j/4489403870  

 
ZOOM - ZOOM !
If you cannot make it to a meeting in person, please join us via ZOOM and keep your VIDEO camera on so we can see your smiling face!

ROTARIANS in ACTION  JANUARY '22
GLEANERS' CUPBOARDS ARE BARE of TOILETRIES

Gleaners needs us to help restock the personal care items they give to needy people and families. Tucked away in your bathroom closet, you must have some sample sizes of deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, shaving cream, little bars of soap, hand cream, shaving cream... you know, the stuff you'd pick up at hotels when you used to travel PRE CoViD-19. I don't know about you, but since I bought a Sonic toothbrush, I've been accumulating a ton free toothbrushes from my dentist for the last 10 years. Bring those!

If YOUR cupboard is bare, you also can pick up some sample sizes at your local grocery store, Meijers, CVS or Walgreens.

 

Bring them to Friday's meeting and Terry Defina will collect them and give them to Gleaners.

SUPPORT GUATEMALA LITERACY SCHOLARSHIP PROJECT for $100

Dear LSRC Members,

Last year 20 of us took it upon ourselves to add two students for scholarships in the Rise Program and contributing to breaking the cycle of poverty in Guatemala.
 
Those of us who have received reports know how well our 2 students have done as well as the ongoing amazing success of the program.
 
In order for these TWO students to remain on scholarship, we need to step up for renewal. Since this is a 501c3, we can run this through the LSR Foundation (as we did least year) but we need the commitment of at least 20 of us at $100 each.
 
Please reply to me with your commitment and I'll count them up, send you the payment info for the Foundation and coordinate the renewal. Please note we only have mid-January to get this done.
 
If we get more than the $2,000 we can look at a third scholarship, or partial third scholarship.
 
By the way, I'm in again for $100.

Jim

CHRISTMAS BLESSING BOXES HELP 211 SENIORS

"I have never thought I would be so excited about toilet paper. Oh it just warms my heart so. I don't really get anything for the holidays so I so look forward to this. Thank you Thank you so much. You have no idea how much this means to me," Linda.
Linda, a local senior, shared her sentiments after receiving her special Christmas Blessings delivery from local volunteers. Livingston County businesses, churches, organizations, schools and local community members provided basic needs items, Christmas cheer and friendly visits to local home bound and low-income seniors through Livingston County Catholic Charities’ annual Christmas Blessing project.  This is a tremendous undertaking each year in our community to provide love, help and hope to vulnerable county seniors.
 
This year’s Christmas Blessing project provided food boxes, cleaning products, hygiene items, paper products and more through 171 boxes to 211 county seniors and their families.
 
This year, 20 volunteers and a number of staff spent 233 hours soliciting, receiving and packaging the numerous donations at the Marion Township Hall as they readied for the deliveries.  During December 8 – 10, 75 cheer-filled volunteers, including members of Livingston Sunrise Rotary, delivered cheer to the seniors.  Mark Robinson and the Senior Services Team at LCCC are grateful for all of the community support.
 
Thank you!
