The Chelsea Rotary Club mourns the passing of one of our founding members, Peek (Fred) Van Reesema. Peek was a respected physician, a loving husband, father and grandfather, and a friend and hero to everyone who knew him. His fellow Rotarians, and all of Chelsea, honor the memory of Peek and send our regrets to Carol and the Van Reesema family for their loss. Peek received numerous Rotary awards for his "service above self," most recently the Paul Harris Award presented to him by past-president Anne Nauts and president Susan Brown.

Paul Schissler and Anne Nauts from the Chelsea Rotary Club were on vacation this January in the Dominican Republic and decided to drop in on the Rotary Club of Puerto Plata. Visiting other Rotary Clubs is one thing the couple enjoys doing when they are traveling. Club Rotario Puerto Plata welcomed the visitors and told them about some of their projects, including water and sanitation (aqueducts, BIoSand filters, latrines), school reading programs, women and girl’s empowerment, Haitian education, community center construction, camps for kids.
