Gift of Life
Sarah Woolcock is a heart transplant recipient and a volunteer for Gift of Life Michigan. Her heart started failing shortly after the birth of her son when she was 34. She struggled with heart issues for seven years before a transplant was her only option. Now 20 years later she is a member of a small group of transplant survivors.  She noted that in Michigan you must opt-in to be donor.  Every donor could save eight people and improve the lives of 75 more.  You are never to old to be a donor.  The doctors will decide how your donation might help.  To learn more about Gift for Life, or to sign up to be a donor, click here.
Bed Building Team
 
Rotarians gathered at Mike Kinney's shop to build three beds for this year's Great Bed Race on September 20, 2019. (Michael Mason couldn't stay for the photo.) Thanks to great planning and preparation by Bob Gifford and Mike Kinney the build went smoothly.  Mike's cat Sam crashed the picture but stayed out of the way most of the time.
Rotary Serves Dinner
Our club provided dinner for the Benton Harbor High School football team, aka the Tigers, and their coaches.  The players showed up a little tired after two-a-day practice but they made short work of spaghetti, meat balls, salad, rolls and cookies. Rotariams plus Beth Bentham did the planning, shopping, cooking, serving and clean up. Thanks to Cindy and Mikes Kinney, Dan and Kyra Utroske, Jim and Beth Bentham, Michael Mason, Lee Scherwitz and Bob Elliott for putting this together on short notice.
