The Garrettsville-Hiram Rotary Club met at noon on March 6, 2017, at Cal’s II, Sky Plaza, Garrettsville. It being the first meeting of the month, the meeting was devoted to dealing with business before the club. This consisted of :
Notice that grant inquiries for District or International Rotary grants must be in by May 15, with an ultimate deadline in June. Subdivision of large projects allow them to be completed and financed in stages. Correlation with projects undertaken by other groups will enhance everyone’s goals. Proposals from last year were reviewed—what’s done, what’s continuing, who owns what.
Discussion of bike racks. There are various designs available; more information is needed on the racks and where they might be placed. Bike stations might be a further indication of the town being “bike friendly” and encouraging visitors.
The new Little Free Library has been installed by Jason Pitsinger. It is located between the Garrettsville Cinema and the Save-A-Lot store. A bench is still needed.
Way-finding signs for the Headwaters Trail are in and need to be installed. Jason Pitsinger may again be tapped for this service, also Ken Tackett.
The club voted to support Chad Angermeir’s Eagle Scout project for the marker at the Jeddo Station.
The JAG student coming to the meeting next week will be presenting the Garfield Core Value of Loyalty.
Four-Way Speech Contest entrants will be speaking before the local club in March; the district competition will be in April.
RYLA—Rotary Youth Leadership Assembly—selection will be coming soon, as will the semi-annual roadside clean-up. Need to co-ordinate with the InterAct club at JAGHS.
