Thanks to the Mackinac Bridge Authority, a rare opportunity to visit the top of the south tower of the Mackinac Bridge is being offered through a raffle to benefit the Rotary Club of Petoskey.

Tickets for the 2 to the Top Raffle are available for $10 each and only 1,000 tickets will be sold. To purchase tickets contact Steve Cross at email@example.com.
The winner and a guest will be able to schedule a trip up the small elevator within the south tower any time between May 1, 2013 and October 15, 2013. The trip must be pre-arranged with the Mackinac Bridge Authority. Although the winner need not be present to claim their prize, the drawing will be held during the Rotary Club of Petoskey's weekly meeting on Wednesday, May 1, 2013.

2012-2013 Theme: Peace Through Service
RI President Sakuji Tanaka will ask Rotarians to build Peace Through Service in 2012-13.
Tanaka unveiled the RI theme during the opening plenary session of the 2012 International Assembly, a training event for incoming Rotary district governors.
"Peace, in all of the ways that we can understand it, is a real goal and a realistic goal for Rotary," he said. "Peace is not something that can only be achieved through agreements, by governments, or through heroic struggles. It is something that we can find and that we can achieve, every day and in many simple ways."
Tanaka, a businessman from the greater Tokyo metropolitan area, shared how becoming a Rotarian broadened his understanding of the world. After joining the Rotary Club of Yashio, in 1975, he said, he began to realize that his life's purpose was not to make more money, but to be useful to other people.
“In Rotary, our business is not profit. Our business is peace,” he said. “Our reward is not financial, but the happiness and satisfaction of seeing a better, more peaceful world, one that we have achieved through our own efforts.”
We are "This Close" to ending Polio.
