 "Grove City - Central Ohio's hidden gem"
  Mayor Richard L. "Ike" Stage

A credit card comparison website headquartered in Pasadena, Calif., recently conducted a study of the best cities in Ohio.  Grove City ranked first, based on such factors as commute time, median income, residents who attended some college, restaurants per capita and the odds of being a victim of violent crime, based on data in the U.S. Census Bureau and uniform crime reports from the FBI.

"Since Grove City was first settled around the turn of the 18th century, the town has undergone many transformations," according to the study.

"First a small farming community, then a bustling railroad depot and later an entertainment hotspot in the roaring '20s, Grove City today combines a small-town feel with big city appeal."

The study also mentions the historic buildings of Century Village as well as the local vintage of the Plum Run Winery.

In November 2011, Richard L. "Ike" Stage was elected to the position of Mayor for a second consecutive term. Stage served as Mayor from April 1988 through December 1995 and served as the appointed City Administrator of Grove City from January 2000 through November 2003. Stage was elected to City Council in 2005 as the Councilman At Large and served a two-year term ending January 1, 2008..

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.

Congratulations to Columbus Rotary's Veteran Mentoring Initiative upon helping OSU obtain this special partnership.

Columbus, Ohio – Ohio State University has been selected by the Pat Tillman Foundation as a University Partner in its Tillman Military Scholars program. The program provides educational scholarships for veterans, active-duty service members and their spouses. As part of the Tillman Military Scholars program, Ohio State joins an elite network of institutions providing innovative support services to our nation’s veterans and their families.

University Partners are chosen based on their ability to meet criteria that include a culture of support for veterans across the institution, specific support services for veterans and a significant military/veteran enrollment.

In 2008, the Pat Tillman Foundation established the Tillman Military Scholars program to invest in military veterans and their spouses through educational scholarships - building a diverse community of leaders committed to service to others. Since its inception, 290 Tillman Military Scholars representing 34 states and attending 85 institutions nationwide have been awarded more than $4.6 million in scholarships to pursue degrees in medicine, law, business, government, education or the arts.

Ohio State is one of four universities to be named a Tillman Military Scholar University Partner this year. Others include the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee, Indiana University and Georgetown University.

The Tillman Military Scholars program will provide financial support to outstanding military and veteran students at our university,” said Ohio State interim president Joseph Alutto. “It is a distinct honor to receive national recognition for our efforts to create a supportive culture for our veteran and current military students. We are grateful to the Tillman Foundation for its generosity, leadership and support of this vital student population.”
