Six students in Lincoln High School's Fashion Design class recently got the opportunity to travel to Chicago were they toured the fashion school at Columbia College, a design studio and class, behind the scenes at Trunk Club and spent some time enjoying the city.
It was an all-expense paid trip by A Bigger World Foundation out of Chicago. Their desire is to give kids experiences through travel that they may not otherwise have a chance to experience.
Thank you to the Manitowoc Sunrise Rotary Club for its "Read to Succeed" partnership with the Manitowoc Public School District!
Rotarians recently donated $1,400 to the district to purchase “Hickory, Dickory, Dock” nursery rhyme books for all 430 children in MPSD's 4K program to keep and take home.
Literacy is a major emphasis for the Sunrise Rotary. They believe helping children to develop competency in this area is vitally important to their future educational success. This is the 5th year of the club’s “Read to Succeed” partnership with the public school system. Thank you to the Sunrise Rotary for your continuous support and donation!!

That image will be etched in my mind as I witnessed one of the more touching moments of my life...." Read more
