Welcome to Hart Rotary!  Eva Berumen, Executive Director of the Oceana Hispanic Center, was inducted today by Club President Heather Jimison.
 
 
The families stayed dry, the food stayed kind of dry and the Hart Rotarians got soaked...but it was a great day for community service!
 
 
The Apple Fest might be over but there is still time to purchase raffle tickets for the MSU/U of M game. Just contact your favorite Hart Rotarian!
 
The Hart Rotary Club is sponsoring another food truck on October 1st.  Volunteers are needed to help unload the food beginning at 9:00 AM in front of Spitler Elementary School in Hart. Distribution begins at 10:00 AM.
 
Today we said Goodbye to our Hart exchange student, Lysa.  It has been a great year with her and we wish her safe travels back to Réunion Island (a French department in the Indian Ocean).  She brought her mom (maman), sister (sœur) and brother (frère) to meet us and to be her travel companions back to France. 
 
So, À bientôt / À tout à l’heure (See you soon), Adieu (Farewell), À la prochaine (Until next time)!
Christy Buck, Executive Director of the Be Nice program, shared with us about the Be N.I.C.E model.  This program is a mental health awareness, bullying and suicide prevention initiative, that focuses on school-wide change through simple, daily actions. 
Notice. Invite. Challenge. Empower.
 
Schools in Oceana County will benefit from this program starting this next school year, thanks in part to the Oceana County Community Foundation as well as various generous donors.  Ask your students about this program in the near future!

Thanks for everyone who volunteered to make this another great event in Downtown Hart!
 
Hart Rotarians sponsored another Feeding America food truck on Saturday along with the United Way of West Michigan.  More than 160 families received fresh vegetables, including tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers and dairy products, including milk and yogurt.  We would like to thank the many community members who volunteered their time to help on Saturday.  We could not have done it without you!  Thank you!
 
 
 
At our meeting this week the Club recognized the three recipients of our 2016 Scholarships- Emily Gebhardt from Pentwater High School who will be attending Grace Bible College, Hannah Brown from Hart High School who will be attending Central and Maia Jonassen also from Hart High School who will be attending Grand Valley.  Congratulations to all of you and we wish you the best in your collegiate days and beyond!
 
Hart and Shelby Rotary Clubs combined for our annual International Dinner to honor our exchange students.  Lysa Poumirol is the Hart exchange student from Reunion Island - an insular region of France in the Indian Ocean.  Nuuti Makinen is the Shelby exchange student from Finland.  They shared information about their countries and performed.  It was a great night with excellent food and company!

Today the Hart Rotary Club honored Stewart Roche on his 100th birthday at the Oceana Council on Aging.  He was a founding member of the Club 75 years ago. DG Tom  Schmidt presented Stewart a resolution from Rotary International in appreciation for his continued years of Rotary service.
