15th Annual Service Above Self Fair
Valley Dale Ballroom
Amazing But True
The 15th Annual Service Above Self High School Fair is Monday, May 14 at Valley Dale. As always, Rotarians are encouraged to take this detour from the Boat House to Valley Dale and celebrate the 60+ community service projects conducted by students from all 21 high schools in the Columbus City Schools. Hundreds of students giving thousands of hours in service to others. Priceless & deserving of a big Rotary turnout.

  • Learn about the projects.
  • Reinforce the students’ efforts.
  • Provide students the opportunity to engage with community leaders and practice presentation skills, confidence, etc.
