Welcome to Akron-Newstead Rotary
 

Please join us for an evening of fun and fellowship at our annual Christmas Auction
as we raise funds to provide Christmas gifts & food for families in need in our local community.
Your $25 admission includes Hors D’oeuvres, cash bar, a large basket auction, and a silent auction.
Keeping with our Rotary tradition, our famous “mystery present” auction will also be taking place!
Please consider becoming a Rotary Christmas Angel by selecting an angel from our
Christmas tree and providing a gift for a child in need.
We look forward to your involvement and hope to see you there!

Rotary Happenings
 

*Thanks to all who attended as well as supported our third annual Oktoberfest held last month at Akron Acres.  It was a fun evening with the proceeds helping the “Blessings in a Backpack” program at ACS that the club finances.  The program addresses the challenge of childhood food security. 

*Retired Director of the CD Wright Center Walt Rosonowski visited the club’s most recent  meeting. Walt, who has done so much for the Akron Newstead community through his leadership at the Center, recognized the club for its support of the facility and the citizens it serves.

*The club and members of the ACS Interact Club recently did their liter cleanup of areas in the community as part of the “Adopt a Highway” program.  Our responsibility extends from Buell Street at Main through the Village to Cedar Street.

*Mark your calendars!  The Annual Rotary Christmas Auction takes place at the Akron Fire Hall on Friday evening December 6th.  It’s a fun event with proceeds dedicated to helping those in need in our community during the Holiday season.
