PERRYSBURG — The Rotary Club of Perrysburg invites everyone to a Fall into Rotary Park event on Sunday from 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m. The free event is open to the public and will be held at Perrysburg Rotary Community Park, 26350 Fort Meigs Road.
Fall into Rotary Park will feature a trick or treat trail, pumpkin and potato sack races, face painting, crafts, a candy apple station, donuts, cider and hot chocolate. Children are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes for trick or treating at candy stations that will be set up. There will also be an official ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Welch Family Pickleball Complex at Rotary Park at 2:30 p.m.
“Community service is a key attribute of Rotarians around the globe, so this event will include a service project,” said Tami Wise, event chair.
The Perrysburg Rotary Club asks those who attend to bring shampoo for adults and children and/or disinfecting wipes. The club will donate the items to the Cocoon, a home and safe haven for those dealing with domestic and sexual violence and abuse. The Cocoon provides 24/7 services to survivors.
“Perrysburg Rotary has a long history of working with the Cocoon to provide funds and donated items for its clients,” says Susan Nelson, vice chair and trustee of the Perrysburg Rotary Service Foundation. “We believe that Fall into Rotary Park will be a great opportunity for our club to collect needed items for the Cocoon.”
“The Perrysburg Rotary Service Foundation had been accumulating donated funds for the Park for many years,” said Jack Sculfort, chair and trustee of the Perrysburg Rotary Service Foundation. “The development of Perrysburg Rotary Community Park began in the spring of 2010, and it has served as one of our club’s legacy projects over the past 20 years.”
