Chili Open Co-Chairs, Wanda Whipkey and Dr. Rob McGregor and their committee  presented the 2019 Chili Open Tee-Off this week!
 
They really energized our members and guests to help raise our goal of  $275,000. This is our largest fundraiser for the Club and Camp, and it is no small undertaking.  Thank you to everyone for assisting where you can - your time, talents and treasures are appreciated! 
 
Next week we will welcome, Julie Johnson, President, Boys & Girls Clubs. She will talk about how they change kids' lives.

See you Tuesday —
 
John Margida, Club President

No Tricks, Just Treats

It was no tricks, but just treats, this past weekend at Rotary Camp. Our campers had a great time trick-or-treating from cabin-to-cabin, and had a fun time playing games in the Rec Hall.
 
Thank you for all the candy and treat donations, and to all the volunteers that made it a delightful experience for our campers. The students from Super Learning did a great job decorating the dining hall with ghosts, bats and jack-o-lanterns.
 
Wishing you all a boo-tiful Halloween with lots of treats!

Interact Fun!

On Friday evening, October 26th, we had 41 students from the North High School Interact club come out to camp for an evening of fun, food, skits, and games. We were joined by our visiting International students, Anna from Spain, and Sataro from Japan. The kids had a great time and they were blown away by the beauty of the camp and the kindness and graciousness of the staff. In spite of the rain they were able to make smores inside with a cozy fire in the Great Room.
 
Thank you Akron Rotary and Akron Rotary Camp!  VIEW ALL 36 PHOTOS FROM THE EVENT BY CLICKING HERE.
 
Helpers were Ben Heckerman, David Hall, Cyndi Kane, and Stew Buchanan.
 
Thanks,
Steve
