Letters from Santa!
This Christmas, surprise the children in your life with the magical gift of a personalized letter and reindeer food from none other than Santa Claus

The Rotary Club of Plain Township and Kell Painting & Decorating offers families the opportunity to send a loved one a personalized letter from Santa.  The suggested donation of $10 will be contributed to the Stark County Humane Society.

All letter requests must be made by December 15, 2021, to ensure arrival before Christmas. 
Holiday Party
Wed. Dec 8 - 6-9pm
Barn at the Monticello
'Tis the Season to Jingle and Mingle with our friends and family. It wouldn't be the same without a party with our Rotary friends. We will be having our annual Holiday party on Weds Dec 8 from 6-9 pm at the Barn at the Monticello Allotment. 
We will provide mixers and a main dish (pizza). We ask that club members bring other beverages of their choice to share or not to share. Also, we would like members with last names beginning with A-L to bring a SMALL dessert and M-Z to bring a SMALL snack/appetizer.  
In the past, we have done the $10 fun gift exchange and we would like to continue that this year also. It seems to provide a lot of laughs. Also, if you would like to have a little more fun we would like you to Rock your Ugly Holiday Sweaters. 
Please RSVP to me at or text 330-705-6706.
