Rotary Swag:  Rotary Club of Petoskey has worked with Carter's Imagewear in offering t-shirts, polo's, etc. with our logo on them.
The Rotary Club of Petoskey "online store" is now ready! Check it out...I want like, one of everything!!!

Here's how it works:

Members shop for what they want on this website.
They can pick up their order from Carter's about 2 weeks after they purchased it. It will not be shipped to their homes.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL because of the custom embroidery

Carter's feels that most of their products run true-to-size. They also have size charts for each item, if someone is unsure of what size to order.

The store is available from now through Sunday, November 17th. All orders will be available for pickup at Carter's starting Tuesday, December 3. To order items click here for the: Link
