Rotary...What We Care About
Governor's Corner
August 2022
July certainly flew by! I visited 9 clubs during the month of July: Orrville, Dover, Jackson Township, Canton South, Carrollton, Warren, Cortland, Plain Township, and Canton. I have had such an amazing time driving through the district, meeting fellow Rotarians, and hearing about all that they are working on! I have another 11 visits scheduled for the month of August. If you haven’t gotten me on your schedule yet, please email me! I really want to try to get to every club before the end of October!
Our “Night for Ukraine” website is now live! Please check it out here. We are currently soliciting sponsorships. Tickets will go on sale in September. Reminder! I am asking each club to donate or raise a minimum of $2,500 for this event. Every Club who does so will receive a Paul Harris Fellow to give out as they see fit. My goal is to raise at least $100,000. All proceeds from this event will benefit The Rotary Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund.
Polio Update: If you have not already heard, a case of vaccine-derived polio virus has been reported in the state of New York. Now more than ever, we need to stress the importance of donating to the Polio Fund. I am asking each club to commit at least $1,000 to the Polio Fund.
As you are working with your Clubs and planning your projects this year, please remember Jennifer Jones’ initiatives. Take action to:
  • Imagine DEI: Expand Our Reach: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
  • Imagine a Welcoming Club Experience: Comfort and Care
  • Imagine Impact: Expanding Rotary’s Reach
  • Empower Girls
You can learn more here.
Last, but not least, please invite me to your events! I want to be there! If I can fit your fundraiser or special event into my schedule, I will be there!
Have an amazing August!
Yours in Rotary,
DG Michelle
Ukraine Relief Fundraiser
I hope that you will save the date for a very special event being hosted in our District this year.

One of the many ways our Rotarians give back to our community is by serving meals at the Rescue Mission of Mahoning Valley.
Mark your calendars because ‘Night at the Races’ is returning November 4th!
This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and is without-a-doubt a great time!!
We’ll be looking for race sponsors, horse sponsors, and this year we’ll have a reserved table option!
Members and family of the Rotary Club of Austintown participated in the Austintown July 4 parade for the 46th year.
Club members volunteered this past weekend at Sleep Heavenly Peace Project.  They provide beds for children who don’t have one.  The project consisted of making the beds from the beginning.  We had to cut wood, sand and stain before putting the beds together.The project was sponsored by Canfield Presbyterian Church and Canfield Lions Club. Larry Bowald is a Canfield Rotarian and the Pastor for the church.
The club’s next project is the City Shelter Project. It’s not fun standing in the rain, sweltering heat or on top of snow mounds awaiting a bus. They are funding two shelters. One is paid for and being built and they are fundraising for the second shelter. On Monday, August 22 there is a fundraiser at Kozmos Grille in Massillon to raise money for this project. People only need to bring the flyer below and 20% of their bill will go back to this project. Or donations can be made through our Venmo or by check. 
A family turned horrible tragedy into good. Jim Eckelberry, along with his wife, Lori, founded Katie’s Kids, a non-profit that grants small wishes to children through a network of liaisons in memory of their daughter, Katie, who was killed by a drunk driver. Our club made a $7500 donation to the cause.
