Upcoming Events of Interest
- Santa Snaps starts November 20th at the end of the Wayne County Lightfest. Bring your children to have their picture taken with Santa Claus. The money from this fundraiser is to support our local and international communities in any number of ways. Literacy, hunger, clean water and sanitation, health initiatives, and scholarships are just some of the ways Dearborn Rotary uses the money. Be a part of the solution by buying your Christmas picture with Santa from Santa Snaps. We are also very reasonably priced, so you can’t go wrong!

Greetings from the President
Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional persons who are united to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. For example, our worldwide network of over 34,000 clubs with 1.2 million members work together on projects like eradicating of polio, building fresh water wells in developing countries, and supporting literacy in our community and internationally.
Awarding annual educational scholarships and mentoring high school students in our community is a priority with our club. If you enjoy being with people in your community who have a passion for serving others, please contact Dearborn Rotary. We have weekly lunch meetings on Thursdays, beginning at 11:30 a.m. at Park Place, located at 23000 Park Ave, in Dearborn. Thank you for your interest in Rotary. We would like to meet you. Merritt Robertson, Club President 2015 – 2016
