Club News
 
On Monday, March 9th, our club inducted two new members - Nancy Goplerud and Kelli Richardson.  Pictured are Mary Arnzen, sponsor with Kelli Richardson, new member; President Samantha Comer and Nancy Goplerud, new member with sponsor Marcie Simms.  Nancy is the Food Service Director for Aladdin Foods, the company that serves us lunch each day.  She is a former Rotarian with and a Paul Harris Fellow.  Kelli is the Events Coordinator at the SOMC Friends Center and was a real partner when we setup for Game Night last year.  Glad to welcome these two active and capable new members to our club!
 
Don Baker was recently recognized our Portsmouth Rotary Club's newest Paul Harris Fellow.  A Paul Harris Fellow is a distinction shared by men and women in more than one hundred nations, many of whom have made significant contributions to world peace and understanding. Anyone who furthers these efforts by contributing $1,000 to the Rotary Foundation is named a Paul Harris Fellow.   Pictured are Fred Gohmann, Foundation Chair,  Don Baker, and President Samantha Comer.

Fifth grade students throughout Scioto County will be receiving their own copies of the book, “The One and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate, as part of the Portsmouth Rotary Club’s collaborative Books Build Bridges Program. Books will be distributed to every fifth-grade student at Clay, Green, Minford, New Boston, Northwest, Notre Dame, Portsmouth, Portsmouth West, Sciotoville, STEM School, Valley, and Wheelersburg school districts.  Rotary president Samantha Comer is shown with students at Clay School.  

Roses will be delivered on March 11th.  All Rotarians are asked to help make this fundraiser a success by selling as many roses as they can and by signing up to work on the 11th to sort and deliver roses.  We need delivery people!

The Plastic Trap

How do we escape our tangled relationship with a throwaway culture? Rotarians are pointing the way.

Exodus

Since 2015, more than 4 million people have fled an economically devastated Venezuela. Tracking the stories of three who left puts faces on that staggering statistic.
