The Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River is seeking grant applications from non-profit organizations that serve our youth, adults and community within Lakewood and Rocky River.

The Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River, in partnership with the Rocky River Recreation Department and the Rocky River Public Library, presented a free drive-in movie event at the Memorial Hall parking lot on September 19.

Nearly 100 from the community enjoyed the movie, “Sonic the Hedgehog,” watching from their cars. Rotary underwrote a third of the event's cost. A 32-foot inflatable screen (shown above) was utilized, and audio was streamed to car radios.

During this period of the COVID pandemic with its various restrictions, the club appreciated the opportunity to demonstrate its commitment to the communities it serves.

Members of the Rotary Club of Lakewood and Rocky River were among the 300 volunteers on September 19 participating in RiverSweep as a community service project.

Rotarians participating in RiverSweep on September 19 were (from left) George Hwang, Curt Brosky, Jon Fancher, Mark Bacon, and Doug Cooper.
