Rotarians from the Troy and Piqua clubs thank all those who participated in the first annual Golf Ball Drop on October 28th. With the generous and friendly help from the staff at PSC Crane & Rigging, 4243 W. U.S. Rt. 36 in Piqua, the balls were dropped on Friday afternoon, prior to the annual football game between the Trojans and the Indians. None of the balls made it into the hole, so the prize money will be donated to each school district.
The event allowed each club to raise money to support their local programs. In Troy, the proceeds will be used for the annual Breakfast with Santa, shared club president, Richard Bender. Planned for December, it will be free to area residents. The club will provide more details on the breakfast in the coming weeks.
Troy Rotary Club welcomes new members throughout the year. Troy Rotarians and the Troy Rotary Foundation support several community projects annually. During the 2015-16 Rotary year, over $23,000 in scholarships and community aid was distributed from the fund, including support for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program, Rotary’s annual Shoe Project, academic and community service scholarships, and sponsorships to summer camps at Brukner Nature Center and WACO Air Museum. The Troy Rotary Club is a member-involved, goal-oriented service club focused on socio/economic issues that have an impact both locally and internationally.
