Dublin Worthington Rotarians: 
  • raise funds for service projects, 
  • donate books to area schools, 
  • assist families in crisis, and 
  • provide college scholarships to local high school graduates 
We invite you to learn more about our club by contacting us

For new member Steve Payerle, it’s all about service.
Steve was inducted into the club at the October 25 meeting. A former member of the Dublin AM Club, Steve resigned to concentrate on the growth of his business and the birth of his son. He found thaat he still had the desire to be of service to the community and felt the time
was right to become re-engaged in Rotary.
Our annual Youth Exchange week-end is coming up January 20th! We need COSI chaperones Saturday afternoon, dinner hosts Saturday evening (pick up students from COSI, provide dinner for 3-4 inbound and outbound students, transport to Powell YMCA) , and I could use a helper for Sunday breakfast at 7:30 AM.  Please contact Jennifer Best if you are interested: jbest@columbus.rr.com
Every Wednesday from 5 – 6:30 PM  we volunteer at the Northwest Library (Hard Rd.) Homework Help Center.  We help all age students with math, reading, social studies and science. There is always a librarian there when the math gets too difficult! If you would like to give it a try, contact Jennifer Best jbest@columbus.rr.com.  She will be scheduling for February and March.
At a recent meeting Peggy Murgatroyd presented son Scott Murgatroyd with a Paul Harris Fellow.  Congratulations!
Brian Krosnick from COSI gave a very entertaining presentation on 'Superhero Science' at our last meeting of the year.  Mr. Krosnick is a COSI Outreach Education Specialist, and he presented an interactive program for the Club's Annual Children's Program.  The children, and dare I say the adult members and guests were equally entertained by the simple yet fascinating science experiments.  He also distributed buy one get one free coupons to all in attendance so I suspect many will be inspired to visit COSI in the next year to see more science in action.
Over the past 6 weeks President Elect Alan Grossman has coordinated a campaign to donate warm weather items i.e. hats, mittens, scarves and socks to the Worthington Resource Pantry.  Once again DWR members stepped up when called upon! 

The Interact Club of SMA Prep successfully completed their goal of installing two benches, one at each campus, in memory of BG Frank Laudano. The photos below shows one container of the bottle caps that became the bench shown at the prep school facing the flag. 

New club members Steve Payerle and Ann Pechacek joined Roe Mauro and the Worthington Kilbourne Interact Students on Thursday December 14th to help ice cookies, paint a mural and create home made cards.  The Interact students painted the mural to add a little color to a windowless classroom, while the cookies were to be delivered to local fire houses; the cookies will then be distributed to local families in need.  The holiday cards the club decorated will be delivered to the Ronald McDonald House for families of sick children to use as they wish.  Thanks to everyone involved for their fine work!
Fifty-nine club members purchased or sold a total of 500 poinsettias in our club’s annual fund-raising project, which surpassed the number the club sold last year. Top sellers were:  Darnell Perkins, 56 plants; Dick Ollila, 40; Tom Reis, 29; George Norris, 26; and Bill Shantz and Tim Shear, 22 each.
