The Rotary Club of Youngstown in Ohio, USA was chartered in 1915.
One of the club’s major projects is its Centennial Project—the Wick Park Pavilion.
The Wick Park Pavilion was constructed in 1957 and has over 175 events booked each year, making it the most heavily used facility in Youngstown.
As part of the club’s centenary, it was decided to undertake major renovations to the Pavilion and to the Park itself. A significant portion of the $350,000 needed for the renovations have been raised and in July this year a new roof was constructed for the
Pavilion. In August a nine hole golf course was installed in Wick Park surrounding the Pavilion. The club will continue to raise funds and work for the betterment of the park.
One of the club’s other projects is ‘Operation Warm’. In this project winter coats are distributed to needy children at the local elementary school. A donation of $20 buys a
new winter coat for a child and then Rotarians attend the school, unload boxes, sort the coats and fit them to the children.
