Business it was to begin the month of December for the Rotary Club of Garrettsville-Hiram. This included :
Christmas Party at the Collins home on December 15; soup, sandwiches, appetizers, desserts, white elephant gifts to exchange, 6:30 p.m. to start, merriment for all.
Planning meetings for Family Week on Wednesdays for breakfast at Fresh Start.
The plan for benches to be placed along the Headwaters Trail, involving Eagle Scout projects and grant money being made available through Rotary District 6630 and donations focused on reviving and rebuilding in the village is still taking shape but it’s in good shape.
A $100 donation was gratefully received from Ohio for History (Tom Aiken)
Revisiting and updating the club by-laws should be accomplished by January.
Another Santa is needed for the Special Delivery Santa Project slated for December 23. Any family wishing to participate should bring wrapped gifts to either the Business Works or McCumbers-Brady Realty for distribution on the 23rd. There is no charge but donations to the People Tree will be cheerfully accepted.
The mystery deepens…who was president of the club in ’80-‘81, ’86-’87, ’92-‘93?
The dictionaries are ready, will an elf deliver them?
The Four-Way Speech Contest comes up in spring; start preparing now.
Zad, the exchange student–in-residence brought a banner from his home club in Hungary. He will soon be moving to new digs with the Schwan family (whose daughter, Rachel, is in Thailand right now) for more adventures.
