Dr. Lisa A. Manz-Dulac and Marty Petz were the guest speakers at the Sept. 4 evening meeting of Rotary of Grosse Pointe at the The War Memorial. Their topic was HART — Haiti and Africa Relief Team — out of St. Paul on the Lake Catholic Church in Grosse Pointe Farms. The speakers were welcomed by club President John Maliszewski. 
HART was created in response to an earlier devastating event in Haiti — the 2010 earthquake. Moved by compassion, the Rev. Sama Muma, assistant pastor at St. Paul, and some parishioners with diverse skills, traveled to Haiti to provide medical aid, medical supplies and physical labor. Later in the year, the group formed the nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization HART.
Dr. Manz-Dulac and Mr. Petz discussed their recent trips, challenges and needs.
