Club News
As part of our 100 year anniversary celebration, Rotary of Portsmouth is partnering with the Friends of Greenlawn to replace the large metal entry arch at the cemetery entrance. This is significant since the Greenlawn Cemetery was in existence when our club was created.  The arch has been missing for years.  This project is funded from the the Rotary Game Night event held in 2019. The video below describes the project.

A few years ago, our club took a leadership role in installing 3 new city entrance signs.  However recently. we realized that several of the logos representing local non profit organizations (including one of ours) were missing.  After doing inventory and locating some discs on the ground, we are in the process of ordering 6 new logos.  When all arrive, each replacement logo will be attached with sturdier ties and those that are still in place will be reinforced to assure that no other logos have to be replaced.  Hopefully all will be back in place soon. 
Each year, Rotary of Portsmouth awards six $1,000 scholarships for students from Scioto County and one scholarship for an incoming international student.   Locally, two scholarships are given to freshmen as SSU, two scholarships to juniors attending SSU and two juniors from Scioto County who attend other colleges or universities.  The following are those awarded this year.
 
Freshmen at SSU: 
Kyle Mehaffy, Portsmouth High School, Biomedical Science
Kaleb Mehaffy, Portsmouth High School, Biomedical Science
 
Juniors at SSU:     
Nathan Dever, Plastics Engineering
Hunter Armstrong, Health Sciences
