The Latest from Rochester Rotary
Juliane Morian is the Director of the Rochester Hills Public Library. After graduating from the University of Michigan’s School of Information she began her library career in a non-traditional way as a usability specialist for a web design firm. Soon after, she transformed her passion for the user experience into public librarianship. She has also worked at the Clinton-Macomb Public Library (in Macomb County, MI) as the Associate Director and Head of User Experience.
Peter is re-joining Rotary to remain engaged with active members and leaders in the community. The values and actions of Greater Rochester Rotarians are fundamental building blocks of the strength, generosity and ethics found throughout our neighborhoods, schools and other organizations.
Sharon has been active in the Rochester community through her involvement with many location organizations such as the Rochester Chamber of Commerce where she is a member of the Rochester Chamber PCN Group and an Ambassador.
Samantha counts Seniors, spending time up north, traveling, and volunteering among her myriad interests. She joined Rotary in hopes to expand her network, have a presence in her community, and to give back to her neighbors both near and far.

Rotary Gateway Park
 
The Rotary Gateway Park is a hidden gem in downtown Rochester. Built by the Rochester Rotary Club in 1997, the park features beautiful flower beds, a cascading water feature, and benches to sit and enjoy a few quiet moments. The Rochester Rotary Club continues upgrade and enhance the park through the volunteer efforts of club members and funding from the purchase of memorial bricks.
