The Rotary Club of Ann Arbor’s 19th Annual Golf and Tennis Outing (GTO) will be on Wednesday, September 14, 2022 at Fox Hills Golf & Banquet Center, just 20 minutes east of Ann Arbor. In true Rotary tradition, this will be an event not to be missed.
The day begins with Registration and Buffet Breakfast at 8 am, followed by a 9 am shotgun start on the award-winning Golden Fox course. Lunch will be served at the turn. The always fun and always exciting Silent Auction will be anything but silent, with cocktails and heavy hors d'ouevres between 2 and 4. The winners of the golf tournament will be announced during this time.
At 4, it’s into the wonderful dining room of Fox Hills Banquet Center for a fabulous dinner and speaker. This year’s special guest is Jim Brandstatter, two-time “Sportscaster of the Year in Michigan” and member of the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame. He will share stories from his top-selling sports book “Tales of Michigan Stadium.”
The GTO is our club’s signature fundraiser that allows RCAA to fund our “Helping Kids Succeed” scholarship programs, distribute grants to 10+ local nonprofit programs, and finance projects in parts of the world where children are most at risk.

In 2013, longtime China correspondent Scott Tong came to the Knight-Wallace Fellowship to research China’s on-again, off-again ties with the global community, and how it connected with his own family. The resulting book, “A Village with My Name: A Family’s History of China’s Opening to the World,” examines nationalism and globalization through the stories of five generations of Tongs. China’s openness to the western world delivered great benefits to them yet came at a devasting human price during Mao’s communist rule. In the end, this openness made it possible for Tong to become an American journalist covering China.
Today, Beijing’s increasingly antagonistic relations with Washington and many advanced economies present a great risk to its own economy and high-tech development.
Now a co-host of NPR’s Here & Now Tong returns to Wallace House to discuss Beijing’s increasing authoritarianism and international aggression, and what it signals for its own future and that of globalization.
The annual Graham Hovey Lecture recognizes a Knight-Wallace journalist whose career exemplifies the benefits of a fellowship at the University of Michigan and whose ensuing work is at the forefront of national conversation. The event is named for the late Graham Hovey, director of the fellowship program from 1980 to 1986 and a distinguished journalist for The New York Times.

Unlike any art museum exhibition you’ve seen, FUN will transform before your very eyes as it becomes what you — our community, our students, and our visitors — make of it.
Over the course of this exhibition, UMMA’s glass-walled Stenn gallery will become a creation space. Piles of materials and supplies will form the backdrop of a collaborative, summer-long free artists’ workshop. A place to create, experiment, glue, paint, and get messy.
