Everyone enjoyed the 2018 Rotary Fish Fry on the Roy Rogers Esplanade.  No rain this year which was a great improvement.  Many Rotarians turned out to serve fish, cook fries, ladle slaw, sell beverages, sell tickets, run up and down the ramp to the refrigerated truck to get more supplies and welcome our guests.  Thanks to all for coming and for our non-Rotarian volunteers who helped us fill the shifts from morning to night.  Thanks to Chair Stan Jennings and President Reece Brown for their leadership on this project which allows us to support community needs in the Portsmouth area.  
 
 
Just some of the folks who volunteered to help make out 2018 Fish Fry a success.  In addition to Stan, Gene and Sue Crum, the Culinary Class from the Scioto County Career Technical Center were invaluable in filling the gaps and doing everything from working the counter, hauling cold drinks from the refrigerated truck and even manning the friers at times.  We could not have done it without them! Thanks to all Rotarians to worked the event from setup to day of to tear down and to Stan and Reece for their leadership and hard work. 
The Grateful Dead certainly summed-up our late-August emotions with this line from the tune U.S. Blues: “Waive that flag, waive it wide and high, summer time is gonna come and go my Oh My.”  On July 1st I was captured on WSAZ climbing-up a ladder to secure the American Flag on a Portsmouth light pole just outside of Belini Cucina’s.  Even better, I was wearing swimming trunks, a “Plant Portsmouth" Shirt (one of the first printed), and a straw hat with a Pinehurst emblem. We had closed-off that block at 7:00 AM on that beautiful Sunday morning to power-wash, paint curbs, and simulate the plans for our August 18th event.
