Forty-one club members and their family members or friends have already registered for a special weekend social event on Saturday, August 27. Alan and Heather Grossman will host a Rotary On the Weekend (Rah! ROW) from 4 p.m. to 7 pm. at their Highland Farm located at 5634 Township Road 211 in Marengo, Ohio. The festivities feature food, beverages, music and farm animals. This fun-filled event is designed for club members and their family members.

Rotary After Hours are opportunities for members to become better acquainted with other members in an informal atmosphere. Attendance at these events qualifies for a luncheon make up and fulfills a requirement for new members to take part in a club social event.

To assist Alan and Heather in planning for the event, members should indicate their attendance plans by sending an email message to John Butterfield (jbutter@columbus.rr.com) or calling John at 614-888-2714 by Wednesday, August 24. Indicate the name(s) of people planning to be present and designate if registrant is child or grandchild.


Thank You!

Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, food trucks, but especially our Worthington Families, for joining us for another wonderful Worthington Family Picnic!

Nigeria reported three cases of wild poliovirus in the northeastern state of Borno in August of this year. Following the World Health Organization's confirmation of these cases, the country returned to the list of polio-endemic countries. The other polio-endemic countries are Afghanistan and Pakistan. These are the first cases detected in the country since July 2014, and while this news is disappointing for all Rotary members, we are confident that Nigeria can defeat polio. Rotary provided $500,000 to assist immediately with the outbreak response, and an emergency response plan has been put...
