Troy Rotarians, members of the Interact Club at Troy High School, and other volunteers came together on Saturday, November 4, to clear debris from a section of E. St. Rt. 55 in Troy. In total, 20 people spent 90 minutes picking up trash and hauling away garbage that had amassed along both sides of the road.
The Adopt a Highway project is run by the Ohio Department of Transportation. Troy Rotary has participated in the project for several years. Program chairman John Haller leads the effort and organizes the teams to help keep the city clean and the roadway safe. It is also a great way for students to earn community service hours throughout the school year. If you are interested in volunteering for the next cleanup project, please contact the club at firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information.
Troy Rotarians and the Troy Rotary Foundation support several community projects annually. During the 2016-17 Rotary year, over $16,000 in scholarships and community aid was distributed from the fund, including support for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program, Rotary's annual Shoe Project, academic and community service scholarships, and sponsorships to summer camps at Brukner Nature Center and WACO Air Museum. In addition to the financial support, Rotarians volunteered nearly 400 hours to several service projects. The Troy Rotary Club is a member-involved, goal-oriented service club focused on socio/economic issues that have an impact both locally and internationally.
