The Rotary Club of Canton will once again hold its Semi-Annual Health Screen & Wellness Fair on THIS SATURDAY, November 17, 2018. This event will be held at Mercy Hall Auditorium, 1320 Mercy Drive N.W., Canton, 44708.
A 12-hour fast is recommended for more accurate results. In addition to the blood screenings, Mercy Medical Center service lines will be offering additional free health screenings and educational materials.
Registration for this event will close on THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16th at the close of business. You may contact the Rotary office at 330-452-2882 or follow this LINK to pre-register or you may walk-in and register on Saturday between the hours of 7 am - 11 am.

It is time for the 2nd Annual Pack the Bus food drive to provide needy families in the Canton City School District much-needed food over the holiday break. The Club received $2400 in grant money that we will use to purchase needed items.
Thousands of children across the United States are hungry and here in Canton, Ohio, it is no different. According to recent census information, 48% of the children in Canton live in poverty. The Canton City School District does its part to help alleviate some of the hunger amongst their students by offering breakfast and lunch free of charge to all of the student population during the school week. But what happens during long breaks from school?
Here’s how you can help:
  1. Volunteer. Sign up to either be at the trailer during the actual drive or for the delivery later in the afternoon. The signup sheet will be available at our weekly meetings beginning this Friday.
  2. Donate Items. We are looking for non-perishable food items, new clothing and hygiene supplies for the children of Canton. All non-perishable food items are welcome as well as clothes (coats, hats, gloves, pants, shirts, boots, shoes, underwear and socks) size Small to Large. Hygiene supplies include toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo and soap.
  3. Donate Money. Any money donated will go to purchase items not received during the drive.
Please bring items on November 15, 2018 from 10am-2pm. The McKinley High School Marching Band is generously donating their equipment trailer to use as the “bus” for the food. They will be located in the parking lot of the Zimmermann Symphony Center, 2331 17th St NW, Canton. The Center is attached to McKinley Senior High School.
(Editor's note: PLEASE consider signing up for a one 1 hour shift (or more) to ring bells for the Salvation Army Holiday Kettles! Chairperson James Boggs has personally signed up to cover 5 shifts, due to a relative lack of participation from our other members! 
This has been a long standing Canton Rotary community support effort, and deserves your support. It is FUN, requires only a little bit of your time (and not much effort), and is a great way to get to know a fellow Canton Rotarian. 
James should not have to provide so much of his personal time to this worthwhile Club civic endeavor! Please sign up! Thank you!
