Garrettsville – The Garrettsville-Hiram Rotary Family Week ended as it began, with fun for all in attendance. The kids of all ages got to engage in games and contests and craft projects–with or without face-painting. Awards for participation in all of the various competitions –art & essays, etc.–were handed out. The craft table was popular, with kids making cards for moms & dads and just about anybody else they thought fondly of. The importance of family was shining through the whole day.
Couples married fifty years and more, eight of them, were recognized. Donald & June Crawford took the longevity sweepstakes, having been married a fun-filled fifty-eight years…and counting. The Family of the Year–the Douglas and Karen Lyons family, with Porter, the Transplant Guy, in attendance– received their award as well.
The inflatable slide/rock climb was a big hit with the intrepid of all sizes and descriptions. Plenty of dads and grandpas are still feeling the effects of assisting on “the slopes”. What can we say? The day was a success!
Still more activities are on the horizon for G-H Rotary : The Four-Way Speech Contest is rapidly approaching; any teens wishing to participate should start honing their skills and plan to contact a Rotarian to get on the roster. There is a prize and a chance to compete on a district level–good experience.
