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
 
Juniors at other colleges:

Collin Finn, Miami University of Ohio, Political Science
 
 
During these times of pandemic, it looked like a Fireworks display for Portsmouth was out of the question.  On July 4th, the Friends of Portsmouth worked out a way to have fireworks but to also do it safely for our community.  Rotary of Portsmouth was happy to donate $1,000 to help make the event a reality.  Read more about the event

The future: What can we expect when we get there?

As we stand at the threshold of the third decade of the 21st century, imagine where we’re
