A NEW SOCIAL GATHERING








The Vocational Service Committee is Planning 2 happy hour networking events each month: A Craft Brew Club one week and 
Bourbon Club another week.   Chairman Gouty will buy drinks for the first 3 people who show to Craft Beer...  "I'm NOT going to be buying anyone bourbon as that might get costly", he said.  

Their inaugural event:

GOOD NEWS TO TELL
President Tricia urged everyone recently to share their news with your Rotary Family.  Good or bad we want to be able to share that news with the entire Club.  Let Scott know about your news to be shared here.  

 
 

New Member William McCracken and his wife their 2nd daughter on March 11, 2016.  Rachel Isabelle and Mom are doing well.

Herb Reimenschneider tossed out the first Derby Day bid for a bottle of Maker's Mark Bourbon on March 14.  Come to a meeting to keep the bidding moving!

The renewed Chamberlain College of Nursing Rotaract Club held their first community service project that the club worked on last month. For the month of February the club decided to sign up for the Polar Plunge at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium which was a fundraiser for the Ohio Special Olympics. The club participated in a wide variety of fundraising activities and raised $695.79 dollars all of which went to the Ohio Special Olympics.
ROTARIANS AND FAMILIES

 The following members and their families need your cares, concerns and prayers.

Rotarian Jim Houk's mother passed away on February 28, 2016.  
 

 
Service Above Self College Scholarships
Each year our Club sponsors 10 Service Above Self college scholarships worth $2500 each  to deserving high school seniors in the Columbus City Schools.  We conduct brief interviews with candidates proposed by the high schools in Columbus, focusing on their academic achievement and their commitment to community service.   Galen Graham is coordinating the interview process.
 
The interviews this year will be on the mornings of Wednesday, April 6, and Thursday, April 7 and will be conducted by seven teams of three or four Rotarians.
 
Our scholarship program is one of the major activities of the Club each year, and as newer Rotarians, we want to offer you the opportunity of joining us as interviewers.   We will provide interview questions and help arrange car pools to the schools.  We will have more candidates than we have scholarships, so this is important work and we would very much appreciate your willingness to serve.  I should also mention that listening to the stories of these talented students and how they achieved so much is often very inspirational, and is one of the best parts of the Rotary year for those who participate.
