Garrettsville-Hiram Rotary members were awed by the scope of initiatives, activities and programs outlined by their speaker, Fred Youngen, of the Windham Bible Church, also a moving force in the Renaissance Family Center, which was the topic of his remarks.

Virtually no age group in the community would fail to find some area of interest to participate in.  Social concerns and the means of addressing them fall within the center’s purview, as do recreational and cultural activities–clubs, leagues, societies and the like.  Partnering and co-ordinating with the Salvation Army has helped each entity to get the most done at what it does best rather than duplicating each other’s efforts, and this has held true for other enterprises as well.  There is even some thought about becoming involved with the Windham Branch of the Portage County District Library as it searches for new quarters.

Anyone looking for a basketball league, family-friendly movie nights, an AA meeting, an occasional coffee with friends or community-focused programs in a number of areas should check out the Renaissance Family Center web site or check out their posted activity schedule or ask one of the many volunteers and participants how to get involved.

And, of course, planning continues for the annual Reverse Raffle and Silent Auction at Sugar Bush on November 11th.  Get your tickets now!
