Rotary Club of Westerville
Inspiring Rotary Club of Westerville luncheon at the Villa Milano yesterday! Our speaker Jackie Shaffer told us about the work of her group Village Voices International to bring drinkable water and economic opportunities to the tiny village of Kailer, Kenya – a mission that’s been aided by Rotarian Jim Williams and Westerville’s Church of the Messiah United Methodist. We heard from Boy Scout Chris Koval, who for his Eagle Scout project will complete installation of the club’s Peace Pole at our Harris-Askins House apartment complex for low-income seniors. (Chris, a junior honor student at Westerville South, is the son of our friend Jennifer Koval and grandson of Rotarians Carol and Mike Groseclose). And we again were urged by President Jim Meacham to SELL TICKETS to our April 16 Villa Milano Lasagna-to-Go event, the club’s major fundraiser of the year. #westervillesouthhighschool #villamilanobanquetandconferencecenter #ChurchoftheMessiah #villagevoicesinternational ...

Rotary Club of Westerville
Fun social lunch today for the Rotary Club of Westerville, as President Jim Meacham led us through another “Getting to Know You” third Thursday fellowship meeting. We learned about yet more hats worn by our illustrious President Jim – as a volunteer firefighter for the Genoa Township Fire Department and as a longtime Chaplain for the Westerville Division of Fire. And we heard much of the life stories of two of our newest members – Lee Schockling and Susan Whittaker – who both joined the club in January 2023. Great getting to know you!#VillaMilanoBanquetandConferenceCenter #District6690 ... See MoreSee Less
