Mike Scruggs presents the Major Donors Award from Rotary International to Sue Ellis in honor of Tom Ellis' long and significant support of Rotary International's Foundation.


David Malinowski joined us for his second visit.  He is the new Roger and Anne Clapp Chair of Performing Arts at The Fine Arts Association.  Welcome, David - it is great to have you with us!     



Invocation:  Vanessa Clark

Pledge:  Bob Fratino

Song:  Tom Hill (America the Beautiful)






Happy Bucks:

  • Johanna gave a happy buck and an announcement about the Cleveland Women's Orchestra having the opportunity to play a tribute concert in honor of the Women's Orchestra of Auschwitz as part of the Violins of Hope exhibit this fall.  One concert was last week, broadcast over WCLV and available through their website, and the other is on December 6 at 3:30 at a temple on Mayfield in Cleveland Heights.

Rota Bucks:

  • David Malinowski won the drawing of $22; the Queen lives, and is up to $464.


  • No birthdays this meeting.


  • Vanessa Clark passed out flyers for an upcoming concert for the NorthCoast Men's Chorus on December 6.  Our own David Malinowski and Tom Hill are part of the chorus, and this will be a fantastic show!
  • Larry Lamphier passed out flyers for his seminar series, which is starting back up.  The session coming up is on December 4 at Quail Hollow, and will teach participants how to create a one-page strategic plan for their business.  Any proceeds from the seminar will be donated to Painesville Rotary!
  • Deb Remington announced that next Tuesday (November 17th) is our night to prepare dinner at St. James and some of the regular volunteers are committed to another event that night (Painesville Holiday Stroll), so more volunteers are really needed for St. James.  If you can volunteer, please sign up online.
  • If you are signed up to distribute dictionaries, please connect with Dick to get your books and pass them out.  We would like to have them all distributed by Thanksgiving if possible, just to avoid the possibility of running into hectic schedules with holidays and then not having the books passed out until January.
  • During the month of November, our Rotary club is working with another club to collect non-perishable goods for those in need.  Please bring any that you have or purchase to our meetings.

This week's program was about Suit Yourself, a local nonprofit organization that provides career clothing to those in need.  Established in 2015, Suit Yourself was established after Barb Britt, through her work at Lakeland Community College, encountered a number of women who were recent graduates of the school and had no professional attire for job interviewing.  Suit Yourself is an all-volunteer organization and works on an appointment-only basis for donations and for clients - their hours are flexible, and they are willing to meet people almost any time that is convenient (including Thanksgiving and the 4th of July last year!).  They started in a donated classroom space in Painesville, and in 2011 moved to a bigger space on Walnut.  They also have an office in Ashtabula.  Please check out their website for more information about this fantastic organization:




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.
