GET YOUR BUCKEYE ON
On Monday, November 20 we will start our own Buckeye Week in preparation for The Game!
 
Our meeting will start at NOON with special guest Buckeye Blend; an OSU themed Barbershop Quartet.  Arrive Early, wear your gear, or your team colors and enjoy the fun!
CIGAR RAFFLE
NOVEMBER 20 - If you are a Cigar Aficionado, or someone who wants to impress their favorite brother-in-law during the Thanksgiving Holidays, or a Buckeye Fan who wants to celebrate the upcoming WINS we are sure to have…. READ ON!
 
A box of 25 Cuban Cohiba Cigars was generously donated by Carol Garner, a Past Columbus Rotary President with many ties to Cuba, to our Derby Day Event. The value of the cigars is $450.  The recipient of the these cigars, John Easton, is giving Rotarians the opportunity to enjoy these very aromatic, special production cigars with a donation to the Club Foundation. 
 
Here’s how it will work:
 
  • Buy the box of 25 to share with your friends or family. Value $450. The highest bidder over $500 wins! Consider going together with a couple of friends to buy the box – the value is great! Send your bid to Scott via email by Nov 17. We have an offer from a non-cigar smoking Rotarian to chip in an additional $5 per cigar if all cigars are sold!
  • If we don’t have a buyer for the box by Nov 17, we will sell them individually at our Rotary meeting right before Thanksgiving. 1=$25, 2 or more =$20 per.

2017 Annual Service Campaign

What Percent Are You?
Columbus Rotary Foundation's Annual Service Campaign has collected $47,146 toward our goal of $80,000.    FANTASTIC!!! Unfortunately our participation goal is not raising as fast as the donated dollars.  Just 33% of our members have donated to the campaign.

Donating is easy.   Pay with your credit card on a Monday.  Write a check.  Go online HERE right now.  

We are focused on 100% participation of all Columbus Rotarians in this campaign.  If everyone helps, with whatever they can afford, our fundraising goal will be exceeded.  Donate today!  No amount will be turned away.  The thermometer's red level shows our participation.
