ROTARY FLOAT TRIP
EASY Rotary Sunset Kayak trip
Downtown Columbus
Friday evening, June 21
Hope everyone had a fun Holiday Weekend! Now it’s on to the next summer adventure!
 
The plans for the Rotary Sunset Float Trip/Paddle are set. All you need to do is click the link below and buy your ticket. There is a map with parking directions. The parking lot is a little hard to find, but it has a fence around it, and you will see the large kayak trailers, and I will have gold and blue balloons. Some of us plan on having a little bite to eat in the parking lot as we await on everyone to arrive (bring your own). Then we’ll walk down the water and the guides will help us in the boats and we’ll begin our little trip!
 
Please sign up by Wednesday, June 5! They have made this a “private” event, but if for some reason we can’t fill the slots we will have to ask others (I got enough people who indicated they are interested).
 
Use this link for registration:
This will be an exclusive Rotary event if we have 25 participants. Let me know your intentions by May 13! 
Guests Welcome! 614.329.1894, or 1jackcoop@gmail.com       
Afterward, we’ll go to Franklinton and have an adult beverage at one of the breweries!

FAMILY PICNIC

Imagine a warm and sunny day at the park with birds chirping, squirrels foraging, an the aroma of hamburgers sizzling on a hot grill.  Children are having fun playing games and exploring natural park wonders as adults mingle with fellow Rotarians and friends, play cards, or simply relax and share a meal.  

Join us for the Rotary Family Picnic on Sunday, June 23 from noon to 3:00 PM at Scioto Audubon Metro Park.
 Delicious food.  Games.  Music.  A few surprises.
Tickets are $15 for 18 or older
Under 18 free.  

Tickets can be purchased each Monday through June 17. 

 
POLIO DANCES
NOTE FROM PRESIDENT CALLOWAY
Dear Fellow Columbus Rotarians:
 
I have been enjoying my family on a beach vacation this week and missed Rotary this past Monday.
 
Whew!  My ears were burning Monday afternoon with Roy Lydic presiding as Prez for the Day which he bought at our Derby Day auction for our charitable projects.  I messaged Roy that my ears needed ice packs after he roasted me...
 
I was also sorry to miss the Briarwood fly fishing last Friday too  when we began our trip as the trout were biting.  Thank you to our hosts Dwight Hurd and Jackie Cooper.
 
June has so much to offer.  Please check the CRC calendar of events and sign up to enjoy all you can. 
 
Be the Inspiration!
 
Yours in Rotary, President Calloway

BRING YOUR GRADUATE TO ROTARY
At our Monday, June 17 luncheon, we are going to have our second annual "Rotary - Take a Grad to Lunch" event.   .  We will recognize the grads and their Rotary hosts from the podium (no speaking required), and we will include their names on a Powerpoint  presentation at the luncheon.   We'd like to know their names and schools in advance - so please let Galen Graham know (galengraham1@gmail.com).  We will also have a sign-up table at our June 10th luncheon.
 
Please bring a graduate with you to lunch that day - they can be a graduate from middle school, high school, college, a vocational program, or be starting or completing military service/training..  This will be a nice recognition of their accomplishments!  See you on the 17th!
CONGRATULATIONS
Congratulations are in order for two of our members. Kathleen Lach-Rowan was voted one of the countries best wealth advisors and Trent Smith is being recognized for his tireless efforts in Franklinton.
