ROTARY IN THE PARK

Meeting opened with an Invocation by Rotarian Bill West. 
 
No 50/50 this week! 
 
The meeting was held at Washington Park’s Main Pavilion. Seventy-four Rotarians and guests attended.
Our move to the Park had a dual purpose; serving as a kick off to the restoration project of the pavilion and the “unofficial” ceremonial change of Club Presidents.
President Joe Piszczor received his Past-President’s Pin along with a plaque and ceremonial gavel from incoming President Rich Podgurski.
 
 
 
 

LEW GREEN award

The Club LEW GREEN award was presented to our own Paula Leppert aka The Card Lady who never misses a birthday, club anniversary, get well note…Paula does it all! Paula was presented her award prior to our speakers and was very appreciative. We have all had our day brightened with a card or note thanks to The Card Lady!
 
Of course, where there are Rotarians there is always food and a dinner was catered by Angelo’s Restaurant.
The dinner was followed by a few notable speakers representing:
  • The Washington Community Theater Group
  • County Commissioners Larry Maggi and Harlan Shober
  • Jeff Kotula representing Washington County Tourism along with
  • Rotarians Christie Bean Rowing and Lynn Galluze representing the City of Washington.
They all spoke to the importance of the pavilion to the community and how this project will improve the future of the Park and community.
 
Financial support from the community continues thanks to the continued ads and notices in the Observer-Reporter and fund raising from various community groups which will be held to support our efforts.
There will be much more to follow dealing with fund raising and Rotary specific projects to move us toward our goal.
This is a time when ALL ROTARIANS have an opportunity to work on a project putting their individual skills and abilities into the total effort.
 
REMEMBER: NEXT TUESDAY WE WILL RETURN TO W&J AND WE WILL SEE YOU THERE…NOON.
