Avon Avon Lake Rotary – North Coast Rotary Press Release July 14, 2015

In July, the Avon / Avon Lake Rotary Club secured approval from its parent organization Rotary International to change the Club’s name. The Club services Avon Lake, Avon, Sheffield Lake and Sheffield Village and includes members who reside or work in surrounding areas. Fundraising has benefited programs for Avon, Avon Lake and Sheffield/Sheffield Lake school districts and a number of community organizations and projects in these communities.

For years, the Club has recognized that its name was not inclusive of its Sheffield Lake and Sheffield Village service area. “The communities thought we were only for Avon and Avon Lake because of our name,” John Daly, a club-member since 1989, explained. An effort was made to change the name to North Coast Rotary, but Rotary International’s rules were different then, and the request was denied.

Earlier this year as part of the Club’s strategic planning process the issue was raised with urgency. After some debate, the Club voted overwhelmingly to update their name to better reflect and communicate who we serve. With the assistance of Rotary District Governor Rex Engle, the request was successful!

The Club’s commitment to its three school districts, our Rotary-sponsored Northcoast Interact Club and our communities is unwavering. We are working industriously on projects and our major fundraising events. So mark your calendars for the Great Pizza Bake-off at Avon Lake High School on Thursday, October 1 and the 12th Cleveland Pops Orchestra Concert – “Twelfth Night” – on Saturday, December 12.
