2012 Ferndale Rotary Breakfast
(C. Proxmire, Dec. 9, 2012)
The Ferndale Rotary held their annual pancake breakfast on Dec. 8, 2012. The event helped raise money for the many projects Rotary does. In addition to pancakes, breakfast-goers enjoyed a spinach quiche from Dino’s Lounge, sausage from Howe’s Bayou, and strawberry-banana cheesecake from Peteet’s Cheesecake.
Money raised goes for the following projects:
~SCHOLARSHIPS. Each year Rotary gives scholarships to students who are involved in the community.
~DONATING HELMETS FOR THE ANNUAL BIKE RODEO. Free helmets are given to children to keep them safe while they are riding. The annual event also offers bike licensing, bike inspections and fun for the kids.
~DNA KITS. Rotary purchases youth DNA kits for the Ferndale Police Department to distribute to parents who may want a DNA sample on hand of their children
~QUILTS OF VALOR. Rotary teams up with Quilts of Valor to provide servicemen and Veterans with handmade quilts in honor of their service. To read more about this, see https://oaklandcounty115.com/2010/11/16/quilts-of-valor-given-to-ferndale-vets/.
~ENDING POLIO. Around the world Rotary is known for eradicating polio with the spread of vaccination. The Ferndale Rotary, like all Rotary clubs, contributes dues which help finance this effort.
