Rotary Club of Plain Township

Home Page Stories
The Rotary Club of Plain Township has organized a “restaurant relief” campaign to give back to local Canton restaurants that have supported our organization through fundraisers and events. 
 
The Club has pledged up to $5,000 towards the effort, with most establishments slated to receive donations of $500. Club members will begin the restaurant relief tour starting at 5 pm on Tuesday, November 17, by presenting checks and purchasing appetizers at Basil Asian Bistro, then Desert Inn followed by The Bistro of Oakwood.
 
On December 1, we will make donations and have appetizers at 5pm at Walther’s Twin Tavern and dinner at Loby's Grille.   We will also be supporting John’s Bar, Taggart’s Ice Cream, Sol Pie Pizza, Kraus’ Pizza, and Almost Heaven Ice Cream.
 
The community is welcome to join the Rotary Club of Plain Township during the campaign. The Club is committed to supporting the remaining restaurant donors for catering holiday events and club gatherings, including Old Carolina BBQ, Smoke the Burger Joint, Pizza Bogo, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Bonefish Grill, Aladdin’s Eatery, Jimmy Johns, Fat Heads Brewery and Peace Love and Little Donuts.
