Rotary Report

Garrettsville-Hiram Rotarians are moving on from their successful Family Week activity to support for Rachel Schwan, our local International Student Exchange adventurer for the coming year.  With the very helpful  encouragement and mentorship of Carol Donley, Rachel is looking at the likelihood of spending the 2014-2015 school year in Thailand.  Part of the requirement for this is locating three local families willing to participate as hosts for a possible incoming exchange student coming from who-knows-where.  The Collins family, the Brown family and the Schwan family have stepped forward and it’s all systems GO so far.  Any other families who would like to launch into this adventure at some future date should contact a Rotarian and cross their fingers.
G-H Rotary also would like to endorse the upcoming Portage Parks District levy to be on the May ballot.  This would give a solid financial foundation to the district and enable it to provide more outdoor experiences for everyone, as well as maintaining the current holdings for greater use and access at a cost of  less than $20 per year for most taxpayers with a $100,000 home.  It’s a bargain, with great possibilities for families and organizations  across the county.
Members affirmed their support for the Hiram “Shop With A Cop” program.  Tom Collins attended a Repair America : Protect, Produce, Prosper—Good Job/Green Job conference in Washington, D.C. and will be a future program.
New members are always welcome—Monday evenings, 5:30-7:00, Hiram College Dining Hall
