Past President Collyer Smith writes:
2016-2017 was another banner year for the Rotary Club of Ann Arbor in serving our community- whether our community is here in Ann Arbor, or elsewhere, like El Salvador, or Sierre Leonne. We allocated over $245,000 for scholarships, community grants, international projects and celebrated our 100th anniversary with the opening of our $1 million Universal Access Playground! All while creating the magical intersection between our hard work, and the fun we all had!
And, that magical combination has lead to many new friendships, not only in Ann Arbor, but throughout the world!!
I want to thank Immediate Past President, Ashish Sarkar, for his mentorship. Our Board of Directors, President-elect John Ackenhusen, President-nominee Greg Stejskal, Board Secretary Barbara Eichmuller, Treasurer Mark Ouimet, Sergeant at Arms Dave Willims, and Steve Schram, Brandon Black, Glenna Frank Miller, Leo Shedden, Don Deatrick, Chuck Blackmer with help from our Administrator John White, Controller Dave Keosaian, and Active Framework expert Arthur Di Blassio. These great people supported and guided us through our incredible Centennial Year! I hope you will join us as we continue to give back to the communities we love!
