How does literacy figure in to the economic recovery? How does it contribute to improved health outcomes? What is family literacy? The new definition of literacy reaches across generations to build stronger communities. The Literacy Coalition of Washtenaw County was created by the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners in 2007. Meet some of the member agencies providing literacy services from birth to seniors and learn how this initiative sharpens Rotary’s worldwide and local focus on literacy.

Luncheon Meeting - Russ Collins, CEO of Michigan Theater - Vaudeville to Vivaldi, and "How to Watch a Movie"

Built as a vaudeville and silent movie palace, the Michigan Theater originally was known as a “Shrine to Art.” It’s still that, and then some. Occupying a central place in Ann Arbor’s cultural landscape with its gloriously restored 1,700-seat auditorium and 200-seat screening room, the Theater is still a movie palace. But it’s also the performance home (since 1984) of the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra and hosts many University Musical Society events and other concerts. Our own Russ Collins will hit the historical highlights, give us a preview of 2010-11 offerings, and at no extra charge will provide guidance on “how to watch a movie.” Popcorn, anyone?

Two billion people get drinking water from whatever source they can find, clean or not. Now there’s a safer, more effective and affordable way to purify found water. Featured at the 2010 Rotary International Convention, AquaDrop is a biologically active liquid copper compound that rapidly and safely destroys contaminants in impure drinking water, at much lower dosage levels (one drop for three gallons) and environmental risk than chlorine. Today’s speakers will explain how this product fits into the toolkit for Rotary’s worldwide clean water commitment.

One time-honored tradition in Michigan football hasn’t changed during Coach Rodriguez’s so-far tumultuous tenure . . . the head coach’s annual season-preview visit to Ann Arbor Rotary. That tradition will continue as preparations begin in earnest for the 2010 season, and for the opening of all that impressive new structure towering above the more modest majesty of the “old” Michigan Stadium. We’ll welcome Coach Rod back to Rotary with open arms, and lots of good questions, as he brings us news of the team’s plans, players and prospects for this year.
