JOIN US at noon Jan. 6 for our first weekly lunch meeting of the year, at the Villa Milano.

And it’s going to be a great meeting! Our speakers will be Rotarians John Powell and Brad Dodrill, presenting a program on our 2021 staging of the Phil Brown Holiday Basketball Classic. The Classic is a basketball showcase we present each year, featuring the boys and girls squads from all three Westerville high schools, between Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

Past President John and Brad have been helping run the Classic since its inception 30 years ago. They will speak about its history, and its renaming in 2006 to honor our Past President Phil Brown, the event’s founder. And we’ll share tons of photos from the 2021 Classic, held Dec. 27 at Otterbein University’s Rike Center.

Also on tap for this lunch: Our January Students of the Month from Westerville Central, North, South and DeSales, and the induction of two new members into the Rotary Club of Westerville!

Be sure to attend this wonderful program and lunch Jan. 6 at the Villa Milano Banquet & Conference Center, 1630 Schrock Road.
