CS Rotary Supports
North Kent Connect
By Tom Noreen
In mid-February, the Cedar Springs Rotary Club presented North Kent Connect with a check for $5,000 to develop a new website. The funds were the result of a matching grant proposal submitted by Rotarian Kim Latham in October, 2019. Kim and Patty VanderWall, North Kent Connect’s business manager, prepared the grant and supporting documents. This is the third grant that the Cedar Springs Rotary Club has obtained in support of North Kent Connect’s programs for a total of over $25,000. The first two grants were done with the Rockford Rotary Club.
On behalf of the Club, Kim submitted the grant request to Rotary District 6290. District 6290 is composed of over 60 Rotary Clubs from West Michigan, the Eastern Upper Peninsula, and South Central Ontario. The District matches the Club’s contribution with funds from the Rotary Foundation.
