Like mud? Like fun with a challenge? Want to support community service projects? The “CRAWL. CLIMB. RUN.” has it all!
Run the Columbus Rotary Obstacle course then hose off and enjoy delicious food and cold refreshing beverages while celebrating with teammates and friends. Help each other through the course, wear costumes (prize for the best) and have fun! Entry fees are $20 per person, or $75 per 4 person team, plus bring items for Mid-Ohio Food Bank, Homeless Families Foundation and homeless shelters.
Participants face a shorter, but challenging obstacle course that promises to be an experience to remember, and while it may be somewhat demanding, have fun and support a good cause. You may run it individually or as part of a four person team, and team members may help each other get through the obstacles. Wear costumes if you like and a prize will be awarded for the best one.
Spring is a time for change. We feel the change from cold to warm. We see the change from white to green.
And, here at Columbus Rotary we will be seeing some changes in our upcoming spring billing statement. Some of the changes represent increases to make up for the natural increase in club expenses and the lunches we get here at the Boathouse, but also some changes in the semantics of the bill.
The annual leadership retreat has been postponed for the time being. Originally scheduled for May 16 we are looking at future dates for this event. Thanks to those that had set aside time to attend. We will let everyone know when and where the event has been rescheduled.
