Club President's Message

News from Our Club
This year's Board of Director's gathered for the first time on Tuesday, July 12th.   Our New President addressed the team and announced that our club has experienced significant growth in the last five years.  Now we need to help engage and mentor each member but this is not just a job for a mentor but truly each and every members responsibility.  

Effective July 1st, an IT Sponsorship of $50 per week is available. Sponsors get their name and logo (or name if no logo submitted) on screen as part of the loop of announcements. Since Akron Rotary is charged for the projector and screen whether we use it or not, we’ll be putting it to use promoting Rotary activities.  The sponsorship will offset the cost.
For more information or to reserve your sponsorship (and have the first choice of dates), email Sandy Naragon at
Sandy is looking for a few volunteers who are willing to help get the weekly sponsor PowerPoint going on the projector. Knowledge of PowerPoint is helpful in case last minute updates are necessary.  Email her if you’re interested.

The purpose of Rotary Cares is to show our support for Akron Rotary members and their families when dealing with the loss of a loved one, the hardship of illness and also to celebrate the joy of a new baby, job, marriage or other event in their lives.

Congratulations to Julie Brandle who has joined the 2017 Go Red for Women Executive Leadership Team of the American Heart Association serving Summit and Portage Counties.

Congratulations to Rick and Marcie Rockich on the birth of their daughter Stella born on July 13th.  Welcome baby Stella!

Please join them for a reception celebrating their nuptials on Friday, the nineteenth of August 2016 at 4 to 6:00 PM in the Great Hall of Concordia at Sumner Sumner Parkway, Copley, Ohio. Please respond you attendance to 330-664-1007 or
