The Sterling Heights Rotary club gathered on the evening of Friday December 14, 2018 to bring holiday cheer to the youth of the MISD school for Physically or Otherwise Impaired children. The children enjoyed pizza, holiday songs, balloon twisting and fellowship provided by the Sterling Heights Rotary Club. This event has been put on for over 40 years by the club to brighten up the holiday for these youth. After a meal was provided the children had a special guest arrive, Santa! Santa proceeded to provide each child the opportunity to sit on his lap and receive a gift that was purchased by the Rotary club. Each year these families look forward to attending. Thank you to the countless volunteers who supported our efforts. Thank you to  local high school students from our Interact Club (Youth Rotary) located at Henry Ford II High School and Boy Scout Troop 1402 of Fraser MI for their support on hosting an outstanding event. 
To learn more about this program and others like them, join us for a meeting on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month.

On Friday December 7, 2018, the Sterling Heights Rotary club gathered together to wrap presents for our annual Holiday party hosted at the Macomb Intermediate School District to benefit their Physically or Otherwise Health Impaired Children. For over 40 years, the club has asked the children to pick their top 3 choices for a Christmas gift. The Sterling Heights Rotary then takes this list and gathers together to shop for the gifts, using funds generated through the various community fundraising activities led by the members of the Sterling Heights Rotary Club. Fun was had by all the Rotarians in attendance as we gathered for friendship and fellowship to wrap presents for these very deserving youths, served by the Macomb Intermediate School District.

Members including Clark Andrews, Linda McLaughlin, Todd McKay, Brian May and Robert Dewar helped deliver the food on Thanksgiving morning.

View challenging people as your assignment.
Ask yourself: "What is this person meant to teach me?"
Every person in our lives has a lesson to teach. Some lessons include:
to become stronger, to be more communicative, to trust intuition,
to be more self-loving, to know when to let go, to be nothing like this person!
