Roses will be delivered on March 11th.  All Rotarians are asked to help make this fundraiser a success!  Please sign up to work on the 11th to sort and deliver roses.  Every Rotarian is expected to sell at least 5 dozen roses with many Rotarians hopefully selling many more.  Orders are due to Samantha no later than February 14th so it's time to start selling roses.  Thanks to all for your efforts last year for making the sales and making this fundraiser a great success earning more money than the Fish Fry.  Updated copies of the Rose Sale Flier and order form are available on our website https://portsmouthohiorotary.org/sitepage/rotary-rose-sale  
 
Lets make this years Rose Sale another success in our 100th year so we can share the profits with our community!
 
At our Rotary Christmas luncheon, three new Rotary Board members were announced - Stan Jennings, Sonie Hash and Time Jennings.  These new members - and Fred Gohmann not present - will begin their 3 year Rotary Board service on July 1, 2020.  New board members are congratulated by President Samantha Comer.  In addition, Tim Horner was reelected as Secretary-Treasurer and Tess Midkiff was reelected as Sergeant-at-Arms.  
 
On Saturday, December 14th, Rotarians rang the bells for the Salvation Army Kettle Drive from 9am to 8pm.  Happy to see Rotary helping with this annual drive to help those in need in our community.  
 
For several years, Rotary of Portsmouth has offered support to the Portsmouth Public Library for their Summer Reading Program as a way to promote literacy in our community.  Jay Willis, Rotary Board member, recently presented Anne Krebbs, Youth Services Associate at the Portsmouth Public Library, with a check for $1,000 in support of their 2020 Summer Reading Program.
