Dublin Worthington Rotarians: 
  • raise funds for service projects, 
  • donate books to area schools, 
  • assist families in crisis, and 
  • provide college scholarships to local high school graduates 
We invite you to learn more about our club by contacting us

In December Dublin-Worthington Rotary club members purchased poinsettias for residents of area retirement communities. The annual project is one of the club’s many community service activities. This week club member John Butterfield delivered poinsettias to nine facilities in the Dublin and Worthington areas, including Willow Brook Christian Home, where he was greeted by Administrator David Chappell. Since 2001, club members have purchased 523 poinsettias to bring a little joy and beauty to these individuals during the holidays. 
 
Big thanks goes out to everyone who has participated and supported the book drive for Mongolia, especially the Friends of the Worthington Public Library and Chuck Gibson, Director & CEO of the Worthington Public Library. 
 
Please take a few minutes to read this article about this project in Mongolia.

As a result, series 1 and 2 of Maamuu comic book created in collaboration with Mongol Content LLC as well as comics, picture books and educational supplies from Japan. The donations were made to Kindergarten No. 12 of Khan-Uul District, Special Kindergarten No 186 and Special School No 29 of Sukhbaatar District, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. At the same time, meeting with the educational facilities as well as training sessions were organised.
...
As part of the collaboration, the Khumuun Complex School is to register their Interact club and correspond with Interact club of RC of Worthington-Dublin, USA in organizing of the book donation in the USA to be donated to schools and kindergartens in Mongolia.
Paola and I have now moved into our new house (condo) and feel like real Floridians now that we have the plates on the cars to prove it. :-)
 
It seems strange to be walking around in 80 degree weather today with all the stores primed for black Friday and all the Christmas decorations are fully in place at the stores.
 
I will be officially be joining the Rotary club that the Barnharts and Dan Weiss are a part of this coming week. 
 
All the best,
Bob

Chrissy grew up in Worthington and is thrilled to be working in her own community and supporting her neighbors. She and her husband Chris and their two kids, Sam and Clara, live with a gaggle of dogs and a cat.

Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...
