The Medina Sunrise Rotary Club recently partnered with Judge Kevin Dunn on a Build-a-Bear Workshop.
“All our hard-working Rotarian and student volunteers were a big help,” said retired Judge Judy Cross, Rotary project chair. “The Build-A-Bear program, under Medina County Common Pleas Judge Kevin Dunn, was another big success this year as last. The lovable bears will be given to local foster children and distributed to some of the children who currently attend Medina County’s Windfall School.”
Rotary Club President John Ross added, “We are pleased to continue our partnership with Judge Kevin Dunn on such a worthy project. The Build-a-Bear program is a perfect extension of our Medina Sunrise Rotary mission of ‘Making a difference in the lives of children in our community and beyond through our time, talents and treasures.’”
Include: Dr. Andres Bello, Will Koran, Sharon Danko, Judy & Dr. Mike Davanzo, John Ross, Becky Shotwell and The Bears

"The Passing of the Gavel Ceremony is an honored Rotary tradition signifying the responsibility associated with the office of club president," stated Mr. Young.
In this ceremony, the outgoing club president, Vance Truman, hands the gavel to the District Officer representing Rotary, Jack Young, signifying the return of the responsibility of which he/she was entrusted upon assuming the presidency. The Rotary District Officer then passes the gavel to the incoming club president, John Ross, thus demonstrating confidence in the new president's ability to handle the responsibility of the office of president and maintain or better the club and fulfill the Rotary Motto of "Service Above Self."
