Join us Wednesday, September 17 for After Hours a the Club Office.  Image
Stop by for a drink, some food and fellowship.

Flame broiled burgers with gourmet toppings that would make Bobby Flay jealous, hot dogs better than dime a dog night at Huntington Park and the best baked macaroni and cheese casserole served at the Clubhouse all year.  Feel free to bring your own preference to throw on the grill and your favorite beverage of choice.  We’re still working on some fabulous deserts to top it all off (hint hint).

But we can't compare to Jim Budros!Image

See you a at the Clubhouse on Wednesday, September 17th starting at 5:30pm until…

Bring a friend and Bring your family!

ImageColumbus Rotary began recognizing member participation in addition to attendance at weekly luncheons using a program called Touch Points. To date participation in events other than weekly meetings were recorded only when information was made available to the club office. This will not change, however, members can now record their participation easily by going to the website Relatively, the Touch Points will be awarded to members as follows:

•       1 touch point for attendance at weekly meetings, club socials, project/committee/Board/District/RI meetings, etc.
•       2 touch points for being an active volunteer at a Rotary function, chair committee/meetings, etc.
•       3 touch points for contributing at least $250 to Columbus Foundation or Paul Harris fellow, $100 to the RI foundation/Polio Plus or other fund raisers
•       4 touch points for every new member you sponsor that joins the club and pays dues for at least one year

For every Rotarian that achieves 52 touch points in a Rotary year, a “Perfect Participation” award will be made. This award will be added to our annual Perfect Attendance Awards. Recognition will be similar to the Perfect Attendance recognition.  

The awarding of Touch Points will be on the honor system. Each member determines the number of TPs they are eligible for and submits this information to the club on the club website. Doug Gouty, First Vice President Tricia Strahler and Scott Brown have made entering this data easy on the club website. I am sure there will be issues and we will use this year to evaluate and change as needed. Please bear with us as we are going through this change.

In years past the Club published a membership directory for members every other year.  You are still able to have a membership directory at your fingertips in several ways.

1) You can login to the Club Website. Once in using your username and password, you can find a number of pieces of information, including the club directory, under the "My ClubRunner" section. 

2)  If you have a smartphone (not a Blackberry) you can download the app ClubRunner.  This app will prompt you for your password and username which are the same as that used on our Club website.  Once you enter that information you will have every member, and the information in our database about them, on your phone.

3)  Lastly, you can contact the office for a paper copy.  You should also contact the office if you need help wiht the above online operations.
