The Rotary Club of East Jordan happily awarded a $5000 donation to the Grandvue Terrace and Recreation Park.  The mission of the park is to have an outdoor area that stimulates the senses, maximizes optimal healthy living, embraces fellowship and gives Elders a reason to get up in the morning and a purpose outside themselves.  The Grandvue Terrace and Recreation Park will provide opportunities for Elders to continue their love of nature with the creation of a one-acre outdoor area encompassing a greenhouse, walking paths with sitting areas, a woodworking/small animal barn, a tranquil water feature, a picnic pavilion and a multi-generational activity area with horseshoe pit and playground equipment.  The project will be funded entirely through donations, in-kind materials and services and grants.  Pictured from left to right; Dan Thomas, Karen Brennan, Tammy Jackson, Carol Timmer, Tami Vincent and Paul Michael

The most powerful force in the promotion of international understanding and peace is exposure to different cultures. The world becomes a smaller, friendlier place when we learn that all people regardless of nationality desire the same basic things: a safe, comfortable environment that allows for a rich and satisfying life for our children and ourselves. Youth Exchange provides thousands of young people with the opportunity to meet people from other lands and to experience their cultures. This plants the seeds for a lifetime of international understanding. - See more at:

What is Rotary?


Rotary is Different Things to Different People :


To a ten year old boy it is his Little League Baseball team.


To community members and visitors it is a social gathering during East Jordan’s Sno Blast for the annual Chili Supper.


To a high school student it is the opportunity to become a foreign exchange student for a year and discover another culture.

To a ten year old boy it is his Little League Baseball team.

To graduating high school seniors, it’s the scholarship that helps them attend the college or university of their choice.


To a family in Central America it is the organization that provided them with a sand water filter thatfor the first time in their lives gave them potable water.


To Charlevoix/Emmet county students in a physically and mentally impaired program, it is the annual Christmas luncheon where the same jolly Santa knows them by name and brings them each a special gift chosen just for them.


To a local Boy Scout it is the opportunity to grow in body and mind with a positive set of core values.


To the millions of children worldwide it is knowing that they will never have to run the risk of contracting polio because they received a vaccine.


To a two mile stretch on M-66 it is knowing that twice a year a group will show up to clean-up the roadside.


To a local school it is a support system for their programs by providing opportunities that young people might not otherwise be afforded.


To a child in the Philippines living at the Lingap Center, it is a clean, safe home and an opportunity to attend school.


To the organizations who present programs at our weekly meetings it is an opportunity to get their message out to a group of committed community citizens who are interested in learning about their mission, goals and objectives.


To the thousands of campers who stayed in a cabin at Camp Daggett it is a set of memories they will treasure forever.


To a dad and a son, it is an opportunity, once a year, to spend an evening together, with other dads and sons, at the annual Rotary Father-Son Banquet.


To our members, it is an opportunity to work and serve together, in support of the common good
