Thanks to Jennie George, we now have a new recurring Zoom link for those of you who prefer to attend on-line.

Sue Marzano and Rich Dever, Co-Chairs of our Club's new SARTA Bus shelter project, announced the details of their project at last week's meeting.
After members Dan and Suzette Matthews saw bus shelters adorned with the famous Rotary logo on a trip to Turks & Caicos, they brought the idea back to Sue, who, as one of 11 children, used SARTA's service extensively as a child. Having experienced waiting for a bus in the elements, including rain, sleet, and snow (and having to sometimes spend the day with wet socks), she got together with Rich and they hashed out a plan to see if we could partner with SARTA on some new shelters at their bus stops.
After considerable discussion and coordination, SARTA chose a site at 4th St. and Hartford Ave SE for the first new Rotary shelter, as it is one of the busiest stops in the city. Cost to build a new shelter is $8,000, and, thanks to the generosity of a couple of Rotarians (who wish to remain nameless), as well as a donation from our Rotary Club of Canton Charitable Fund, the new shelter is now scheduled to be built!
Sue and Rich are now working on raising funds for the second bus shelter, with a "Dine-to-Donate" event being held on Monday August 22, 2022 at Kozmo's Grille in Massillon from 5 to 8 PM. During that time, 20% of your food purchases will be donated to the Canton Rotary Bus Shelter Project. Just print the flyer below, or take a screenshot, and show it to your server at Kozmo's when you're there. 
The flyer below also shows some other ways to donate if you wish to. Please reach out to Sue or Rich if you have any questions or comments. 
Hi folks, hope you're having a great week!
As I mentioned last week, I am asking all Canton Rotarians to volunteer a little of your time (or maybe a lot, if you're up for it!) to help our Club be successful this year and to continue into the future. Below is a short list of committees that I would ask you to take a look at, and to pick at least one committee on which you'd like to help. With no administrative assistant or office any longer, there's a fair amount of work that needs to be done to allow our club to operate smoothly. Plus, we are still trying to build back up from the pandemic's negative influences, including stabilizing our membership rolls, raising funds to run our club, as well as to continue our support of both our local and international communities, plus making sure we are able to help the youth in our Canton community.
Please take a look here and let me know what you might like to help with. It doesn't have to be a lot of time, maybe an hour or two per week, unless there's something that really grabs you and you feel compelled to grab the bull by the horns! My email is and cell is 330-575-2870.
