Akron Newstead Rotary Celebrates

“A Thank You”


On March 16, 1989 an important event happened that formed a great partnership with our community.  That was the founding date of the Rotary Club of Akron Newstead.  The club was sponsored for Rotary International by our neighboring Rotary Club of Clarence with Larry Whistler being the first president.  Since 1989 the club has been living its motto “Service Above Self” by assisting citizens and organizations in both the community and throughout the world.  This has been and continues to be possible by the generosity of the people of Akron/Newstead through Rotary fundraisers.  To show its appreciation to you, the community, the club invites you to join them on Cruise Night, June 20 in Russell Park for free hot dogs, beverages and fun.

A huge thanks must also be given to the Charter Members below who had the vision to create the Rotary Club of Akron Newstead with a primary objective of “helping”:
