Sandy Creek Ruritans support youth camp

Published: April 6, 2017 12:00 AM

The March meeting of the Little Sandy Creek Ruritan Club was held on March 21 at the Paris Israel Church in Paris.

President Dick Pero called the meeting to order at 7 p.m. Dick Lotze gave the invocation. Secretary Dick Beck led the singing. The members of the church served a roast beef dinner complete with salad and desserts.

After the dinner President Pero requested Beck to call the roll. Twenty-two members answered roll call. Pero asked Beck to read the minutes of the previous meeting, which were read and approved. Pero called for the treasurer's report from Lotze, which was approved as read. Pero requested that Beck read the minutes of the board of directors meeting for March.

Pero asked Lotze to give a report of the Swiss-steak supper. Lotze gave a detailed report about the costs to put on the supper and profits made. He pointed out this project is and has been successful for the club. Pero then requested Chuck Bucher, vice president, to call on reports from standing committees. All committee chairmen answered.

Mike Wright, Ohio district governor, asked to speak about the upcoming Ohio Spring Banquet to be held April 16 at the Amish Door in Wilmot. He said activities there will be sure to include many of the national ruritan officers. Also, entertainment will certainly be good and will hopefully help recharge the clubs for the coming year.

Wright also spoke about the Ruritan Youth Camp to be held in Virginia in June this year. He reported that ruritans in the local area will send several young people this time with the cost of transportation at $145 per youth. The club was asked to help.

Bill Tuttle moved to spend $290 to pay transportation this year. Neal Raynor gave a second and, after discussion, the motion was passed.

Pero then brought up the Quota Club in Stark County. The club supported this group last year. The group works with youths who have hearing disabilities and assists families with getting support to help young people with these disabilities. Denny Snyder moved to support the project. Jack Spencer seconded. Motion was approved after a short discussion.

Pero requested a report of the Zone Five meeting about the spring convention. Snyder reported that he has been in contact with Zone Five, which will furnish a prize to be raffled off at the spring banquet.

Bob DeMate moved to adjourn and Tuttle seconded. Meeting adjourned. Pero closed the meeting by having the club recite the "Pledge of Allegiance."
