Time to mark your calendar for the 2019 Rotary Fish Fry on Friday August 30th
 
We need all Rotarians to either help with setting up the stand, working the event on Friday morning, afternoon or evening or helping to tear down and move everything back to its storage area on Friday evening.  Stan Jennings will be handing out sign up sheets closer to the event, but now is the time to block out a few hours on your calendar when you can help with this event.  The amount of money we can give to community initiatives is based upon the amount of money we earn from our two fundraisers - the Fish Fry and the Rose Sale.  So mark your calendars, come out and have some fun and be sure to sell or give away your Fish Fry tickets when the time comes.  Service above Self!
 
On Monday, June 3rd, two new Rotarians were inducted Debbie Gambill and Reese Bentley.  Debbie is a retired realtor and the leader of the Friends of Greenlawn organization who is making efforts to restore the cemetery as an historic site and community park.  Reese is the Director of the Techumseh District of the Boy Scouts of America,  Mary Arnzen and Dave Stone served as sponsor for Debbie and Reese respectively.  Also picture is our President for two terms - Reece Brown who will complete his term with the induction of President-Elect Samantha Comer at her Installation on June 24th during the noon hour at our usual meeting place in the Sodexo Ballroom.  Please welcome Reese and Debbie as new members. 
 
Our newest member - Tim Angel - is actually not so new.  Tim was a previous member of Rotary several years ago.  So, when John Prose nominated him as a new member, we brought him right in.  Angel is the new Executive Vice President at Hillview and will succeed Prose in his role as President.  However, Tim is not only a new part of the management team at the Hillview Retirement Community, he also is the owner of Jets popcorn and candies.  Welcome Tim!   Dick Schisler and President-Elect Samantha Comer handled the honors.
So it's that time of year when we give some of the money away that we have earned with the Rose Sale and the Fish Fry to deserving students from Scioto County.  As you know, we offer $1,000 to 6 students who are either SSU freshmen, SSU juniors or juniors from any other school - as long as the student is from the Portsmouth area.  This year's recipients are as follows.
