Garrettsville – Noses to the grindstone, eyes on the snowy skies, the Garrettsville-Hiram Rotary Club got down to business at their meeting on April 4, 2016 at Cal’s II, Sky Plaza, Garrettsville.  Here was their agenda:

This year’s Fit & Fun program will be likely having involvement of the Garrettsville YMCA, especially in regard to the nutrition program and pickleball.  The Portage Park District may be weighing in with a Headwaters Trail walk.  There will be prizes, courtesy of a grant from McDonald’s.  Bigger and better is the goal!

April 10 is the date for the InterAct/Exchange Student get-together at Sky Lanes  for bowling—and food; they’re teenagers.  Hours will be from 1:00 to 4:00p.m.  Food and prizes—a winning combo.

Happy Dollars went into the pot in celebration of a fine 4-Way Speech competition, a good Easter attendance at church activities, good business and a good life, an enjoyable college weekend, better grades, a good bridge construction, a great farewell for a centenarian.

The District Conference seems to have suffered a PR fail.

The Free Library Project is looking for a builder/constructor but it’s coming along and will probably be located on private property next to the Headwaters Trail, with the assistance of the Portage County District Library branch  in Garrettsville.

Club-building is on the “to-do” list for all members.  Special activities and recognition for local business persons—movers and shakers—are on the horizon.  Young people, particularly, as well as former members will be encouraged to become part of the local programs.  Invitations will be going out for special times and interests in Rotary.  The 90th anniversary luncheon in June will be one of these occasions to showcase Rotary and what it can be for community involvement and progress.

All aboard!
