Our Early College Interact Club is selling "Santa-Grams" at the school this holiday season (a bag of candy with a Holiday greeting attached for someone special!).
This is a fundraiser for this Interact Club to help fund their community projects.
If you would like to donate candy or money towards the purchase of candy, please see Jennie George at Friday’s meeting.
On behalf of our Interactors, thank you! 
The Rotary Club of Canton has a long history of supporting the Salvation Army Red Kettle fundraising effort around the holidays.
We have made arrangements to 'ring the bells' again this year:
Saturday December 17th at the Acme Store in North Canton.
There three, two hour shifts, with two of those shifts filled.
If you're interested and able to help us out, please contact Rick Taylor at or by phone or text at 330-575-2870.
Here are the folks who have signed up already:
10 AM to 1 PM: James Boggs, Becky Clark, Sue Marzano, Dan Matthews
1 PM to 3 PM: Bob Pattison, Bob Matthews, Ernie Schott, Rich Dever
3 PM to 5 PM: Rick Taylor, Bruce Hale: TWO SLOTS AVAILABLE! 
Join us to spread some Holiday Cheer! 
As Monty Python said, "Now for something completely different!" - 
We've been thinking (dangerous, we know): maybe we should have an evening Happy Hour gathering once a month or so, in addition to our regular meetings?
No agenda, no announcements, no rituals, just a chance to hang with our Rotary friends and have a good time! 
Well, we're going to give it a shot (no pun intended) on December 14th, as a CANTON ROTARY HOLIDAY HAPPY HOUR!
No reservations required, just pop into the 330 Bar & Grill at the new Doubletree Canton by Hilton anytime after 5 PM or so, and enjoy some good old Rotary FELLOWSHIP!
Plus food & beverages if you so choose, at your own expense, of course.

Please mark your calendars, because we'd sure love to see y'all there! 
Our Sweet Treat Raffle is Back!Join us on December 16th for our last meeting of 2022, which will be filled with great food, fun, and entertainment!  
Each Rotarian is asked to bring their favorite culinary/holiday sweet treat that day to be raffled off at the meeting. It can be store-bought or homemade so don’t let a lack of talent in the kitchen stop you from participating! 
When you arrive, you will be able to purchase raffle tickets (2 for $1.00 or 12 for $5.00) and during lunch you will be able to put your tickets in the boxes for the items you would like to win. The more you buy, the better your odds are to take home a delicious treat for your holiday gathering!  Proceeds will benefit our Charitable Fund!

Following our delicious holiday meal you will enjoy the incredible talents of organist Heather Cooper for a delightful holiday music concert played on the Gibbs-Pryor organ in the Christ Church Sanctuary.  During that time, our trusty elves will pull our treat winners, and, following the concert, you can stop in and pick up your delicious winnings!

This will be a great day to catch up with your Rotary friends or to bring a guest!

Don't miss this fun afternoon!

(Editor's note: if you haven't experienced Ms. Cooper on the amazing organ at Christ Presbyterian Church, you MUST take the opportunity at this event! She is a fantastic musician and the instrument is phenomenal! Do yourself a favor and join us that day.) 

Weight-Loss Challenge

Paul P. Harris formed the first Service organization (Rotary) in Chicago on February 23, 1905.  As the idea of “Service Above Self” spread around the world, communities not served by Rotary were identified and new clubs were formed by existing clubs.  This involved identifying leaders in those growing communities and helping those leaders start a new Rotary Club to serve that community, to exchange ideas and take action.  These Rotary Clubs have since flourished and are an integral part of those communities.
