Rotary is the world’s first service club organization and is dedicated to humanitarian service advocating goodwill and peace around the world and in local communities. There are 30,000 Rotary clubs worldwide made up of 1.2 million members. The Rotary Club of Akron Newstead is one of those clubs.

*A bike repair station was recently donated and installed by the club on the bike path at Cedar Street.

*Speaking of the bike path the bridge just west of Cedar Street received a new coat of paint.
The project was led by long time club member Peter Forrestel.

*In July Andy Borden, an attorney with the Stamm Law Firm in Clarence Hollow, will become the club’s 31 st president. Congratulations Andy!

*The Annual Andrew Bonacore Akron Newstead Rotary Golf Tournament which has been traditionally held in August will not take place this year due to Covid 19. This the largest fundraiser of the club and not holding it could affect the club’s good work. However, a virtual club auction is being worked on for August which has the potential to be a viable substitute for the golf. Our community is invited to participate in this unique event. Specific details will follow.

  1. My children and I walk between Jackson & Cedar daily. We love the bike repair station and multi use water fountain! What great ideas. Has there ever been trash cans on the path? We see a lot of poop bags or loose dog poop and wondered if it would be better if trash cans were available. Thanks Rotary!
