Midland Noon Rotary Club
The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community service.
Donating to Rotary means clean water and sanitation, health and hope in areas that were once ravaged by diseases, economic development and new opportunities. Your financial help makes all that, and more, happen.

Thanks goes out to everyone who made our Pancake Supper a success!
Our annual Pancake Supper was a big success! Thanks to our commitee chaired by Mark Bone and Todd Gambrell and Tom Macardle, Jim Nigro, Dave Smith, John Van Dalen, Bryan Crosby, and Alan Stotlemyer who did an amazing job planning, seting up the event, and coordinating the myriad last minute details that are critical to such an effort.
We can’t thank our sponsors enough! Led by Paul White of Roth Cleaners, they also include Dow Gardens, Saginaw Bay Underwriters, Gambrell and Assoc., Midland Center for the Arts, Dow Chemical Employees Credit Union, ACE Hardware and Sports, Ieuter Insurance Group, Northwood University, The Whine, The Arc, The Legacy Center for Community Success, Yeo & Yeo, McArdle Buick GMC Cadillac, The H Hotel, Chalgian & Tripp, Bart Thompson, DDS, Bone & Baily Insurance, Big Brothers Big Sisters, GreaterMidland.org, Chemical Bank, Garber Chevrolet, MFCU Credit Union, Chippewa Nature Center, B & B Marketng Communications, Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Benjamin F. Edwards & Co., Midland Area Community Foundation, Arbury Insurance, Griggs Building and Design Group, Uribe Cosmetic and Family Dental Center, and Mat Rapanos Century 21. McKay Press provided all the posters, place-mats, and table tents including absorbing design fees. Thanks too to the Midland Country Club for providing staff as well as The Fisher Companies setup of our outdoor kitchen for the grills. Please note that the many of these businesses are owned by or employ our members and all the funds raised from the Pancake Supper place-mat, and this year a table tent, also go towards community needs grants. In addition, I hope you saw the wonderful tribute to Keith Mead on the table tent.
Thanks to the anonymous donors who made that possible. Thanks to all of you for participating and to Rotaract and RYE students and Circle K for helping clean tables, facilitate the pancake flippers, and collect money for Polio Plus. Thanks too, to Dow High School, McDonalds, and the DOS2 Band.
We served 1854 people this year! This is our main fundraiser, and all the money you donate goes back to the community in the form of community needs grants.

Teen Depression and Suicide
Depression and suicide are real. They are happening here in Midland, even as we speak. There are steps that we can take as average citizens to help address this growing issue. Take a look at this video that was presented to the Midland Noon Rotary Club by Liz Kline and Deb Miller on Thursday, September 15, 2016.
Fellow Rotarians it's time to think about going to Atlanta for the International Convention next June.
There's lots to do and see...Georgia Aquarium, Civil War sites and cyclorama, Coca-Cola and more.
In addition to an unparalleled lineup of speakers, entertainment, and events, this year’s convention offers once-in-a-lifetime activities, including:
