Hidden Lake Gardens of Michigan State University recently announced during its Reach For The Sky! event a new attraction that will be coming to the Tipton, Michigan, botanical garden and arboretum. The Tree Tower and Canopy Walk project is set to open in 2020, the 75th anniversary of Harry Fee’s gift of Hidden Lake Gardens to MSU.

Currently, in the design and fundraising phases of the project, actual groundbreaking and site preparation work will commence this fall. The tree tower and canopy walk will then be pre-fabricated during the winter months, with the Canopy Walk set for construction and installation as soon as the winter weather breaks and opening by June 2020. The Tree Tower will begin construction and installation over the summer of 2020 with an anticipated opening of October 2020, just in time for fall foliage season. The Tree Tower and Canopy Walk attraction will provide persons of any ability the opportunity to have a woodland and forest immersion experience.

Team Turkey History
Around 2011, Troy Rotary members, Mark Bucchiand Bob Waldron, began this program to reach into the Troy area for families who were deserving of a Thanksgiving turkey dinner. In the following 5 years, the program grew to about 20-25 families. In 2016, in addition to Troy Rotary’s usual sources for families, they reached out to some Oakland County agencies and raised the total number of to 30 families. The goal for years has been to grow this service opportunity, and in 2018Troy, Birmingham, Sterling Heights and West Bloomfield Rotary Clubs teamed up to increase the amount of families we could serve! Last year, more than 239 families received aThanksgiving meal! We would not have been able to do this without supporting agencies and our most supportive partner, Kroger.

The Central Asian region has been the focus of global water catastrophes for almost two decades now. No one is indifferent to the problems that we share as a region. There are multiple layers to the problem that have transformed political discourse within the countries and have affected relationships between water experts.

All of this personally was ambiguous to me until I started working for the International Fund for Saving the Aral Sea. In my commission, we deal mostly with environmental issues and have some exposure to water-related events. This is what sparked my interest in the topic. I soon developed an understanding that technical solutions alone were not going to bring about desired results without balanced diplomacy.

A sincere thanks to all who visited the Chelsea Rotary Club’s trailer. It was a pleasure seeing those of you who stopped by the trailer to purchase ice cream, snacks, and sodas. Those purchases directly impact the Chelsea community as the trailer proceeds to support worthwhile Rotary initiatives such as scholarships for local students, SYRSLY, and Saturday Morning Challengers.

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

A bunch of us got together and thought that this would be a great way to connect the people we meet (and the dollars they donate) with the people they'll never meet around the world who are impacted by Rotary International's programs.
