The new, Cal’s II meeting place for the Garrettsville-Hiram Rotary Club is proving popular and conducive to getting things accomplished. Those things at the May 19, 2014 meeting include :
Planning for the presentation of a wreath at the cemetery on Memorial Day
Invitation to celebration of Dr. Lynn Newman’s steadfast 60-year participation in Rotary programs with the Andover club
Invitation to the Cleveland Indians Rotary Night on August 1 boosting the Rotary project, “End Polio Now” and featuring many activities as well as fireworks
Possible participation in the Rotary initiative Dictionary Project, wherein third graders at any given school are presented with a paperback dictionary of their very own…suggested by the Portage Mental Health & Recovery Board as a worthwhile project
The Portage Cluster—Garrettsville-Hiram, Mantua-Shalersville, Aurora, Kent, Ravenna—is considering a joint project, possibly involving Habitat for Humanity
Might G-H Rotary be spiffing up the signs at the entrances to the village?
Invitation to participate in the Boy Scouts’ beginning clean-up project on the Headwaters Trail on Thursday, with McDonald’s to follow
Jim Irwin presented a brief program—with pictures and readings—on the history, both commercial and cultural, of the Buckeye Block. The street level businesses varied over time and the upstairs level housed a private, subscription library and the Buckeye Hall, where meetings, lectures, dramatic and musical productions had taken place. There were quotes from an 1868 diary of Eugene Case, one of the laborers on the construction of the building. Interesting.
Dues are due.
There will be no meeting on Memorial Day
