If you do show up, remember the CDC has recommended that EVERYONE wear a mask INDOORS, even if you have had all your shots. Variant D of CoViD-19 is highly transmittable via the air. As infectious as the measles. While breakthrough infections are relatively rare, with milder symptoms, you still can spread the virus to those not fully inoculated. Mask wearing is OPTIONAL for members, not a requirement.

Thank you so so much."

HELP KEEP OUR RIVERS CLEAN
As your District Governor or rather your CEO "Chief Encouragement Officer" for the 2021-2022 year I want to encouraged all clubs to review and consider planning a river cleanup event. It's part of the big RI Environmental Initiative.
 
                                           World Rivers Day, September 26, 2021

This event is a global celebration of the world's waterways, observed every last Sunday in September.  Rivers in every country face an array of threats, and World Rivers Day promotes the active involvement of citizens to ensure the health of rivers in the years ahead.

Chatham Sunrise Rotary in Canada is already planning a cleanup event for their McGregor Creek .

Your club can learn more about the program at cleanwaterforliving.com and consider joining the efforts of the Environmental Sustainability Rotary Action Group (ESRAG)

WALK TO END ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE
Saturday Oct. 2 in BRIGHTON
 
   Howell and Livingston Sunrise Rotarians:  
 
   We've all known someone, a family member or friend, that has been touched in some way by Alzheimer's. The Walk to End Alzheimer's, is a national effort to raise funds for     research and awareness for the disease, along with support for families and care givers directly affected by it.
 
As we did last year, the Howell and Livingston Sunrise Rotary Clubs are teaming up to do our share in battling this dreaded disease. Last year, I'm extremely proud to report that we raised more than $4,000. Once again, the Howell Rotary Club is making a donation of $500 toward the effort. [Do I hear a challenge Sunrise Rotarians?]
 
This year's Walk to End Alzheimer's will be on Saturday, October 2, and be centered in Brighton. I understand that walks can also take place anywhere in Livingston County.  We can decide later whether to meet in Brighton, Howell or some other location for our Walk To End Alzheimer's. 
To register, our team page is located at http://act.alz.org/goto/HowellSunriseRotary.  I hope you'll be able to register and participate.  Any level of contribution will go far in combatting Alzheimer's!!
 
Kind Regards, 
Nick
 
BRIGHTON COMMUNITY BLOOD DRIVE OCT. 5
Give blood, save lives. Make more. Repeat. It's that simple.

While the FDA says you can donate whole blood every 56 days (or up to 6 times in a year) that is a LOT to ask of someone.
 
Instead, consider donating the gift of life FOUR times a year, or quarterly. That’s every THREE months (or 3,000 miles). Do it once in the summer when supplies are drastically low, donate again around a major holiday when others are too busy. Then pick two other times that are convenient for you!  
For example, donate Tuesday, Oct. 5th at The Brighton Light House from 11am to 6pm and then again in January near New Year’s Day; pick a convenient date in April or May, and then donate a 4th time in late July or anytime in August. We have 35 slots to fill!
 
Sign up here for an appointment: https://donate.michigan.versiti.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/137582    Or contact J. Michael Lenninger (click name for email) for more info!  Call or text: (810) 986-9320 
 
 
 
If you are NOT getting the bulletin, or would like to add someone to our email list, please let the editor know!~
