Welcome our newest Painesville Rotarian: Judy Emery!

Today's presentation was Pheasant Run, Part Two, and we welcomed Gretchen Reed and Ted Dalheim as our guest speakers.  Ms. Reed talked about the history of her flying career - all before Pheasant Run.  She began with telling us that she married someone "obsessed with aviation" and that she started learning to fly not long after, in 1968.  She is an aviation enthusiast herself, having been involved with flying ever since!  She is fantastic storyteller, very engaging and funny, and told us a few great stories about those days.  It has been great to hear about her history and the history of how Pheasant Run came to be - and also to know about its current operation and growth, and future plans.


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.
