Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Lakes community caseworker Cortney Leinaar recent spoke to the Rotary Club of Houghton Lake about the program the matches mentor "Bigs" with "Littles". One of their active programs is the lunch buddy program where high school students visit with elementary students during their lunch hour.  Upcoming projects include "Bowl for Kids" in February, and an MLK service day project where kids will make 40-180 cards to hand out to seniors in the area homes. Rotary President Denise Stefanko presented Cortney a $1,000 grant in support of the program.
