The Rotary Club of Cadillac was able to provide these “leftover” funds through the generous donations of their members, past “Rotarians”, and other community members.
“We are so blessed to be able to do this,” expressed rotary member, Jon Catlin. “It’s the best feeling in the world to give away, and to help other organizations”.
“These organizations are so important for our community in the work that they do,” says Hill. “So to even give them just whatever we can. is a great feeling and glad that we can help”.
