Thanks to Carol Starling for organizing another successful Christmas shopping project! 
Last Wednesday, Margo Hahn, Kent Graf, and Jerry and Phoebe Bernhardt along with Mary Bauerschmidt and a dozen Interact members did some serious shopping.  Local families who would otherwise not have much to celebrate will find clothes and toys under the Christmas tree. 
We are still seeking donations to do more!  For any Rotarian who would like to contribute, simply drop off a check for $125 at the welcome table and you will be providing a Christmas for another child in Caro.  
Emily Speirs, Cass City freshman and published author, spoke to the Club today about her book, The Aralan Chronicles. This book is suggested for readers age 8-12. Summary: "

Following the death of her mother, Princess Everest's father has barely let her leave the castle, which hasn't been easy. She's even forced to learn from a terrible teacher, Griselda. Everest longs for adventure, but her father is more concerned about her safety.

However, when there's trouble at the castle, everything changes. Now Everest is experiencing what it's like to live outside the castle walls, free from her father's rules and separated from her brother, Soren.

As Everest starts this new life of freedom, adventure awaits. Along the way, she will meet new friends, uncover old mysteries, and learn more about herself in the process. The only question is, Will she ever see her family or the castle again?"

Rotary President Jodi Fetting presented a $100 Visa gift card to Jordyn Nordstrom for the Caro Alternative Education Christmas Celebration on behalf of the Caro Rotary Club. The Club appreciates the staff’s dedication to make Christmas special for their students!
F/Lt. Brian McComb, commander of the Michigan State Police Caro Post and Trooper Nicole Dhooghe presented about what they are working on in the community, including their new Drunk Driving Simulator cars that they are taking to different schools to help prevent drunk driving.
The Rotary Club of Caro is proud to be one of the sponsors of these cars!
Thank you to Heather LaBerge, principal at McComb Elementary and the school social worker Brian Bennett for discussing the Christmas Family project that we do and how beneficial (and needed) it is for the families.

We are proud to be able to help these families have a Merry Christmas!
Our 42nd annual Pancake Supper on the Thursday even of Pumpkin Festival was a rousing success. With over 300 takeout orders and about 700 people through the line, it was enough to keep the adult Rotarians, as well as the middle school and high school Interact Club  and the Boys Scouts busy for a couple of hours. The Pancake Supper is our biggest fundraiser of the year. We thank everyone who donated, worked, or ate the delicious pancakes and sausage, as well as those who sang and played.
