The Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River is seeking grant applications from non-profit organizations that serve our youth and community within Lakewood and Rocky River.

Providing dream bedrooms for children with life-threatening medical illnesses is the mission of Special Spaces, according to Shari Caruso, director, Special Spaces Cleveland, and Katie Yeager, both members of the Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River.

The Rotary club has named Special Spaces the recipient of funding from the club’s annual golf outing held on August 28.

Since 2004, Special Spaces has been "Changing Children’s Lives One Bedroom at a Time." The non-profit provides the bedrooms with no cost to the families due to the generosity of its donors. Funding comes from individuals, corporations, foundations and grants.

Special Spaces Cleveland will complete its first bedroom make over on November 12. The room is being done for Vincent Gonzalez, an eight-year-old who suffers from cystic fibrosis and requires numerous breathing treatments each day. Vincent also has sensory issues that cause him to not experience pain. He recently broke his finger and didn’t even realize it until his parents noticed its odd appearance.

The Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River continued its distribution of dictionaries to the third graders in Lakewood and Rocky River this fall, a project that the club began in 2005. A total of 673 dictionaries were distributed to students at 11 different school buildings.


The Rocky River Middle School Interact Club hosted an after-school “new kids’ party” on Thursday, September 28. Club members distributed personal invitations to each new sixth, seventh, and eighth grade student, and also decorated the new students’ lockers.

Music and games, as well as a food and beverage table, were included. The Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River provided pizza. The event was well-attended and the new students felt welcomed in their new school.
