Thank you for the honor to have served the club in my first month.
 
Thank you for your participation.
 
We initiated some new changes and hopeful new traditions with Bring Your Graduate to Rotary, new member sponsor gift drawing, mixed up the lunch buffet for both the Clippers program and ice cream products last Monday.
 
See you at the Clippers game 8/2!
 
Let’s raise Columbus Rotary to new heights.  Be The Inspiration.

We hope you can join us for our second Bourbon Trail Trip on Friday, September 14th.  We will be visiting the Buffalo Trace Distillery in the afternoon, and in the morning the Darby Dan Farm in Lexington. There will be an opportunity to "meet" some of their thoroughbreds, learn about the history of Darby Dan, and experience the elegance of a Kentucky breeding stable. 

Details are being finalized, and the cost per person will be approximately $75.  Tickets for this event are on sale NOW!  Please contact Galen Graham or Charlie Boltwood to sign up.

ARE YOU READY
OSU Football Starts in ONE MONTH:  If you haven’t already read ahead to learn who upcoming speakers are going to be, here’s a TEASER for you.
 
IN JUST A FEW WEEKS, On Aug. 27—just before the Buckeye Football season kicks off—we have a SPEAKER who;
  • Is a Buckeye thru & thru. 
  • Was a great HS player at N. Canton Hoover. 
  • Sat on bench for two years while Archie Griffin won 2 Heismans, (led into holes by Pete Johnson, the record breaking TD scorer) 
  • Then his turn came:
     
  • He topped 1000 yards rushing his first season as a starter, (and would have had two 1000 yard seasons except for an injury).
  • Still had over 2000 career rushing yards 
  • But more than that, on a Woody Hayes team, as a running back, he had 100% of his pass in completions—1 for 1 for a QB rating of over 400! 
  • He was drafted into the NFL too.
  • But, he made a lasting his mark on Columbus and the Buckeye Nation for being that familiar, expert voice on the Bucks, on radio.
WHO WILL OUR SPEAKER BE ON AUGUST 27?
(Loyal Buckeye fans know, right?
