Michigan, USA and Ontario, Canada, September 6, 2022 – Rotary members from District 6400, which spans from Wayne and Lenawee County in Michigan to Windsor and Essex Counties in Ontario will be showcasing their impact on September 17, 2022, where they will participate in a Day of Service throughout the region.
The 1,500 members in the district’s 52 clubs have long supported their communities through a range of service projects. On the Day of Service, clubs will work on projects simultaneously to illustrate to themselves and to their communities their far-reaching impact.
“The clubs in our district do a terrific job of taking our motto of Service Above Self to heart,” said District 6400 Governor Traci Sincock. “Sometimes we get so involved in our own projects, though, that we forget to see the big picture. By coordinating some of the projects to take place in one 24-hour period, we can step back and see just how big the impact of our entire district is.”
Projects on September 17 will include food banks and birthday boxes, clothing and book drives, garden and park cleanups, community picnics and events, and fundraising bike rides, runs, and golf tournaments. Two clubs in Livonia, Michigan will be delivering beds they have built for needy families.
Rotary members throughout the world take action to make communities better. They contribute their time, energy, and passion to carry out meaningful and sustainable projects that promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, help mothers and children, support education, and grow local economies.
Rotary’s top priority is the global eradication of polio. Rotary launched its polio immunization program, PolioPlus, in 1985 and in 1988 became a leading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.
