A note from President Asad
Hello everyone,
About to enter spring time in Ohio!  Sorry to have missed our excellent programming for Black History Month and sad to say that I will be on the other side of the planet for this week as well (hopefully enjoying some fresh sushi in Tokyo, Japan)!  Much gratitude to Stacey for running our meeting once again!
Our board met last week and heard excellent plans for our annual auction night (coming up in April) and seems very exciting!  The Auction committee, led by Stacey, has been doing a fabulous job!  A big shout out to them and much appreciated!
Very proud of our Kent Rotary Foundation giving away four community grants in the last cycle that keep the engine of our community development going!  And look for exciting new ideas and themes coming from your Club leadership including connection with Jaycees, strategic planning process, and more!
Finish Your Youth Protection Awareness Training
Please complete the training on Youth Protection Awareness by following the emailed link. Search your emails for the subject "Rotary District 6630 Training Course: Youth Protection Awareness" to find the invitation to the training. This step is critical, as every link emailed is attached to your Rotary member ID, and will automatically identify you in the system once you complete it. If you cannot find this email, please let Todd Kamenash or any of the Rotary board members know so that a new link can be generated for you. Thank you for your attention to this important matter!
Rotary Readers Program Returns!
We are bringing back the Rotary Readers program in the Kent elementary schools, and it will be taking place on Wednesday, March 6th from 9-11am in all five schools (including St. Patricks). We are looking for two volunteers for each school to bring their favorite children's books and read to a couple classes. If you are interested in participating, please email Amy Mucha at so she can put you on the schedule.
