Heroes Day
Three years ago the Rotary Club of Stow-Munroe Falls decided it wanted to serve, give back to and honor those local citizens who are retired Veterans or those retired First Responder Police and Firefighting forces. We chose Armed Forces Day in May as our day to recognize them through assisting with spring clean-up of the exteriors of their homes. We named it Heroes Day in May. The program has evolved over the past two years from cleaning-up 18-20 Vets/First Responders’ homes with between 200-230 volunteers each year to the 2016 goal of sprucing-up 25 homes with 275 volunteers.
Akron-Canton Food Bank
Volunteering at the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank once a month means that we don’t just talk about the problem of hunger, we do something about it. When 20 or so people volunteer, it is amazing what they can accomplish in a couple of hours. Students from Interact, the high school version of Rotary, Rotarians and family members all pitch in to do what is needed. Jobs might be sorting or labeling or in general just being a part of the many steps that get the food ready for those who need it. Staff at the Foodbank are always ready for us. They have wonderfully efficient systems in place to help us make the most of our time. Most of us from The Rotary Club of Stow-Munroe Falls have not personally been affected by hunger, but we understand the scope of the problem in our area. The Rotary motto, “Service Above Self” told us that we needed to pay attention, react and then act for the benefit of those who need our help.
Water Project
Lack of access to water contributes to poor public health and sanitation. It creates a severe financial burden on families, requiring them to purchase expensive bottled water or travel to distant water sources. Last year, Rotary partnered with other organizations to assist the village of El Rodeo in El Salvador. The El Rodeo project will provide potable water to the 52 families of the village of El Rodeo through a solar powered water system.
Dictionary Project
Nothing can beat the smiles of children when they are given a gift. And when that gift is their own dictionary, those smiles can last for a long time. One child announced upon receiving his book, that he was “going to keep it forever”. Each year Rotarians from Stow-Munroe Falls visit all of the third grade classrooms in the Stow-Munroe Falls Schools to present each student with their own dictionary as a gift from the club. Students’ eyes brighten as they are instructed to put their name in the book and keep it safe. Teachers are pleased that the dictionaries open a new world of experiences as they help the students discover all the tools that a dictionary has to offer. The dictionaries provide to key to learning about the words and not just learning words.
Interact Club
When students at Stow-Munroe Falls High School want to make a difference in the community and in the world, one of the places they turn is to Interact. It is a vibrant school organization where the students are supported by an advisor from the school and by adults from Rotary, as they explore the world of community service.

The club does local service projects and involves others from their school. They also assist Rotary's service projects, many of which include helping younger children. Rotary supports them through their Talent Show, and assisting with their membership costs. An outstanding member is chosen to attend RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) Camp each summer to learn valuable leadership and service skills. What a way for leaders of the future to develop their skills!
Senior Banquet
The Rotary Club of Stow-Munroe Falls hosts an annual Rotary Achievement Banquet for Stow-Munroe Falls graduating seniors and their families each April. For the past twenty years, the event has recognized students who have earned exceptional academic marks during their high school career and provides an opportunity to highlight the scholastic accomplishments of graduating seniors. Over 100 students are typically recognized, and nominees bring friends and family supporters. Rotarians wear white oxford shirts and red bow ties in order to serve dinner to the students and their parents. The Stow club underwrites the cost of the dinner and certificates for student awardees.
