Blood Drive
The Rotary along with Versiti Blood and the GT Commons will be sponsoring a blood drive on October 30th from 11:30am-4:30pm at Kirkbride Hall in The Commons. We'd love for you to come and donate! The hospitals in our area need all types of blood and lots of it to ensure they can properly treat patients and all blood donated through Versiti goes right to local hospitals and people in need. Versiti makes the experience as safe and as quick as possible so we encourage you to take some spare time out of your day to donate. You can make an appointment here or walk-ins are welcome! If you have any questions you can email Ramona Pleva at
Honoring Ray Minervini
On October 31st we will be having our Tuesday meeting at Kirkbride Hall in The Commons to hold a special award ceremony honoring Ray Minervini for all of his accomplishments and his service to our community. We will be having a joint meeting with the Kiwanis Club. We would love your attendance for this special event and an RSVP will be sent out closer to the date to confirm for seating and lunch. If you have any questions, please contact Susan Kraus at
