Today's speakers were Lynn Kary, Carrie Dotson, and Ame West from Western Reserve Junior Service League (WRJSL).  They gave an overview of the organization and some information about their upcoming fundraiser, Follies.  They also showed a clip from the most recent Follies to give the group an idea of what sort of skits are presented - it was very funny!  The WRJSL was formed in 1936 by three women - one of whom is our own Sue Ellis! - who saw a need in the community and formed WRJSL to help meet that need.  WRJSL raises money through fundraising, and in turn awards grants to 501(c)(3) organizations in Lake, Geauga, and Ashtabula Counties.  Just a small sampling of grant recipients includes Rabbit Run Community Arts Association, the Humane Society, Habitat for Humanity, Lake County Free Clinic, and Birthright.  WRJSL provided initial funding early in its history to Laketran and Broadmoor, both of which received start-up funds from WRJSL.  The group has two fundraising events - Candlelight Vigil in December, and the bi-annual Follies in May.  Follies made its debut in 1964 and nets around $30,000 each event.  To date, WRJSL has donated some $1.1 million to the community through grant-making.  This year's Follies is being held on May 1 nd May 2 - sponsorship opportunities are still available, as are tickets.  Please see their website at for more information about the organization, its grant cycles, and fundraising events!


With Identity Theft and "data mining" on the internet such a problem, it is best if we keep your name, home address, phone numbers, including cell numbers, and other personal information safe from those surfing the internet for information.  However, your trusted fellow Painesville Rotarians might want to contact you or check on the name of your spouse they just can't seem to remember now.  So with a password they can easily find those things out.

We are just trying to find the balance between easy information for you and hard to get information from those you don't want to have your personal information.

P.S. You can get and print a listing of all Rotarians and their contact info anytime you want (and you know it is updated to the latest we have), but sorry you can't forward a contact list from the bottom of the eBulletin (and therefore can't have it forwarded all over the internet).


Rotary Park (formerly called North Park) was renamed in 1996 after the local Painesville Rotary Club donated thousands of dollars and many hours of labor to revitalize and renovate this small neighborhood park. The park offers a ball diamond that is used by several youth leagues for practices. It also has a new play structure purchased with funds from the state Natureworks grant program. This 4 1/2 acre park is located off Hine Avenue.
