Rotary Club updates sign at court square

| August 21, 2014

Rotarry signCOSHOCTON – The Coshocton Rotary Club is about service above self and making an impact in the community.

One way the club helps the community is by manning a sign at the court square where local community events are advertised.

“It’s very important to us because it’s a great opportunity to showcase news to residents and even visitors,” said Heather Rainwater, president of the Rotary Club. “Visitors especially may drive pass it and see an event listed that will make them want to come back.”

When the sign started to show its age, the club made sure to budget for a new one, which arrived around Aug. 8.

“We are excited because of the new framework of the sign,” Rainwater said. “We wanted it to look like it matched the courthouse and the company that made the sign actually came out and looked at it so they could make it match. It blends in nicely with the historical aspect of the court square.”

Anyone is welcome to inquire about having their news or event posted on the sign for free by calling or texting Shelly Lillibridge at 294-8645. She just asks that you let her know what you would like the sign to say and when you would want it posted.

The Rotary Club also helps with beautiful flowers that bloom on the court square and donated money for the Gator water truck that is used to water all the flowers on Main Street. It also recently helped Lake Park by making a $20,000 donation to its aqueduct project.

Membership in the Rotary Club is by invitation only, but anyone who would like to learn more about the group is welcome to contact a member or visit the club’s district website at
