Perrysburg Rotary donates $325,000 for two projects

PERRYSBURG — The Perrysburg Rotary Club will present $325,000 in checks to the city Perrysburg’s Mercy Hospital for projects it has committed to funding.

The first check of $300,000 to the city covers a major portion of the cost to construct eight pickleball courts at Perrysburg Rotary Community Park. The park is located on Fort Meigs Road. The courts have been constructed and will be dedicated in the spring. They have been named the Welch Family Pickleball Complex.

“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,” said Jack Sculfort, chair and trustee of the Perrysburg Rotary Service Foundation. “Our club has contributed more than $800,000 for the park’s development.”

The second check presentation of $25,000 will be to the Perrysburg Rotary Club Endowed Patient Assistance Fund at Mercy Health – Perrysburg Hospital. The $25,000 contribution is the second installment the club is making to bring its total donation to $50,000.

The club is a member of Rotary International, a global network of 1.2 million volunteer leaders dedicated to tackling the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges.
