Welcome to the Findlay Rotary Club website! I am honored to be serving as President of this wonderful organization that has a long-standing history of making a positive difference in our community and world.
Engage Rotary, Change Lives is the theme that Rotary International President Ron Burton has selected for the 2013-14 Rotary year. This theme is a true reflection of the good that can come as a result of engaging Rotarians around the world in making change. Rotary has impacted numerous lives through projects that rid our world of terrible diseases such as Polio, that provide clean drinking water, that enhance literacy, and so much more! The good work of Rotary is truly an ongoing effort of individuals that embody the philosophy of Service Above Self.
If you desire to be involved with an organization where you can make a difference, please contact me, our administrative office or any Rotary member to learn more.

2nd Bi-Annual Findlay Rotary Club Rotathalon
Saturday, September 21, 2013
A Great Race…..For a Great Cause….Honoring A Great Rotarian
Findlay Rotary Club is holding its second Rotathalon to benefit the Hancock Historical Museum and the creation of a Victorian Garden in the name of Ed and Barbara Heminger. Ed was not only one of Findlay’s most passionate Rotarians, he was also one of the founders of the Hancock Historical Museum. The offerings provided to the community through the Museum are many, ranging from the Museum and grounds on Crawford Street to the Little Red Schoolhouse to the Riverside Train to name a few. Thousands of children and families have had the opportunity to experience the rich history of our community as a result of their efforts.
On September 21st, the Findlay Rotary Club will compete in the 2nd Rotathalon starting at Riverbend Park and ending at the bandshell at Riverside Park. The race will include a 5K run, 10K bike, canoe ride, target gold shot and final sprint. The top three teams in addition to supporting the project for the Hancock Historical Museum, will also have a donation made to an additional charity of their choice.
Please join the Findlay Rotary Club by supporting our efforts over the course of these summer months by making a charitable donation to the “Findlay Rotary Foundation” today. You can direct additional questions through any of our 19 Team Captains or the Rotary Office at email@example.com.
Congratulations to the winners:
1st place = Team Chris Roberts
2nd place = Team Chris Alexander
3rd place = Team Ken Cooper
