At the monthly club business meeting, Chuck Fair, club president, announced to club members that Byesville Rotary was presented with the Governor’s Award for Public Image Initiatives at the Rotary District 6690 annual conference. Byesville Rotary was one of three clubs out of 59 Rotary clubs in District 6690 that were recognized for this achievement. Governor’s Awards, were also presented to clubs in the areas of Community Service, World Service, and New Generations (involvement with Rotary’s youth service groups Interact and Rotaract).
This award was presented for the club’s efforts to let their community know about club member’s efforts to give back to their community through various community service projects such as their annual Christmas Food Basket program and their scholarship awards presented to Meadowbrook seniors.
These projects are supported by fundraisers such as the club’s signature summer chicken BBQ’s, an annual Scholarship Golf tournament, Breakfast with the Easter Bunny, Breakfast with Santa, and Stuff Santa’s Stocking.
Golf tournament chair, Larry Miller, reminded club members to make room in their schedules to serve as volunteers at the Scholarship tournament to be held Sunday, May 7. He stated that, “It is not too late to have a fun-filled day playing golf without any guilt because this play is for a good cause—education.” He went on to say that it is still not too late to register for the tournament or to make a donation toward the scholarships.

Chuck Fair reminded members to save time to spend an hour at the club’s first chicken BBQ of the summer to be held on Saturday, May 13. As usual the club will be BBQ’ing at Rotary Park at the corner of Main and 2nd Streets in Byesville. This year the club will share space with the Byesville Farmers Market. Dates of the remaining BBQ’s are available on the club’s Facebook page.
