On Saturday August 18th, Rotary joined the community in supporting Plant Portsmouth.  Not only did Rotary offer significant financial support, Rotarians also worked to clean streets and were among the 1,400 individuals who potted plants to achieve a Guiness Book of World Record achievement.  Glad that Rotary could be a part of this event to raise unity in the city and to make it look better for all of us.  Hopefully just the beginning.
 
 
On June 25th, the Portsmouth Rotary Club presented a donation to the Friends of Greenlawn Cemetery Foundation to assist with the final payment on the new slate roof for the Chapel. After lunch, the group completed a brief walking tour through the cemetery. We are so very grateful for their support. Rev. John Gowdy is shown receiving a check from Rotary President Reece Brown.
 
On July 25, Tess Midkiff became the latest in Rotary of Portsmouth to become a Paul Harris Fellow.  Tess is Sergeant at Arms and has served on the Board of Trustees for multiple sessions.  Tess encourages other members to make the $1,000 commitment to not just participate locally but also internationally in the good things that Rotary International does.  As the 100th anniversary of the club nears, members are encouraged to take this next step in Rotary service by donating a little each quarter to become a Paul Harris Fellow by our anniversary year in 2020. 
 
Don Baker was recently inducted by President Reece Brown as our newest Rotary of Portsmouth club member.  Don was nominated by Bob Morton and was a previous member of our club and more recently the Ironton Rotary club.  Don is retired after a career in the chemical plants industry.  Please welcome him.
