Families in Lakewood were the beneficiaries of over 70 gifts donated by members of the Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River at the club’s annual Wassail Bowl Christmas Party on December 10.

The gifts were delivered to The Christmas Store in Lakewood. Completely run through donations, the store partners with Human Services in Lakewood and the Lakewood City Schools to receive referrals.

The Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River continued its distribution of dictionaries to all third graders in Lakewood and Rocky River this fall, a project that the club began in 2005. A total of 606 dictionaries were distributed to students at 11 different school buildings.

On August 1, members of the Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River joined Rotarians across the United States by participating in an international service project known as “Children of the Dump.”

Shoe boxes for the Children of the Dump in Chinandega, Nicaragua, were filled with toiletries, clothing, school supplies and age appropriate games or toys. Each year Rotarians will travel to Nicaragua to personally witness and participate in the work being done there. They will also help deliver the supplies to the children.

Rotary members purchased items for the shoe boxes, filled the boxes, and delivered them to an area collection facility where they will be picked up and be transported with other clubs’ boxes to Nicaragua.

Four graduating seniors were awarded college scholarships by the Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River at its weekly meetings on June 4 and 11.

Brian Donahoe and Bihieshta Jabarkhil from Lakewood High School, Jacquelyn Pappadakes from Rocky River High School, and Kiara Hoefsmit from Saint Joseph Academy, received $3,000 awards from the Lakewood-Rocky River Rotary Foundation. This $12,000 program is part of over $60,000 that the local Rotary club donates to the community each year.

In addition to demonstrating academic achievement and potential, these four Rotary scholarship winners were chosen for extracurricular and community involvement.

Winners of Rotary’s annual Speech, Music, and Visual Arts Contest were honored at an awards ceremony April 9 at the Beck Center for the Arts.

Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River, the competition annually showcases the incredible talents of students attending one of five high schools – Lakewood, Lutheran West, Magnificat, Rocky River, and St. Edward.
