Club News
Jeff Rabidoux presents newest Club member Tia Cooley with her Rotary pin on March 12.
On March 5 the Club was fortunate to learn more about the concepts of permaculture and hugelkultur from area farmer Chad Van Tol who practices both at his Benzie County farm, Cold Creek Permaculture.
March is Reading Month and Rotarians are doing their second round of reading and book giveaways to 1st grade students at the elementary schools in the Benzie Central district.  Betsie Valley Elementary children were thrilled to select their very own book to take home and keep. 
Bob Eichenlaub spoke to our Rotary Club about climate change. He is a retired school teacher from Traverse City and came to our meeting representing Citizens' Climate Lobby.
