GLADWIN – On Tuesday, February 9, Anne Trahan presented to the Gladwin Rotary Club on the Great Lakes Watershed Cleanup Initiative. Rotary districts surrounding the Great Lakes in Canada and the United States have created an initiative to clean our Great Lakes watershed in conjunction with Earth Day. This initiative is in rotary’s new area of focus, “support our environment.” All rotary districts on any of the five Great Lakes will be participating. April 24, 2021 is the scheduled clean-up day. This is the first Saturday following 2021 Earth Day.
Rotary believes this will be a perfect way to highlight their support for the environment. It will also be a great way to engage rotary family and non-rotarians in a day of action, to draw attention to the fragile environment, and to focus on the group’s desire to be part of the solution. With the plan for heavy promotion, it is an opportunity to bring awareness to the good work of rotary! Stay tuned for specifics on Gladwin Rotary Club’s chosen project!
Anne concluded the meeting by answering questions from rotarians and guests in attendance.
