Each year, Boardman Rotary has two major fund raisers to support the work we do all year.
The first is the Oktoberfest.  Held in Boardman Park on a Sunday each fall, this event is an outdoor arts and crafts show.  Generally over 150 vendors fill the Park for this one day event, that over 10,000 people attend each year.  Aside from traditional arts and crafts, the show includes vendors offering jewelry, baked goods, personal products, and clothing.  We have a food court packed with everything from sausage sandwiches and fries to giant cinnamon rolls.  Non-profits join in the fun with spaces that inform visitors how they work in the community, and the YMCA of Boardman provides a space for kids and adults to learn about having a good time while exercising.  Live performances are held throughout the day at the Maag Pavilion in the Park, and The Boardman Spartan Marching Band comes each year to march down the midway.  There is a moderate entrance fee, and all funds collected are used to help local non-profits.
Pancakes in the Park is an event that we hold in conjunction with Boardman Park's Maple Syrup festival in the early Spring each year.  Rotarians prepare and serve pancakes and sausage to over 500 guests each day of the event, which takes place on both Saturday and Sunday mornings for two consecutive weekends.  Tickets are sold by Rotarians, as well as at the door, and the funds are used to support Boardman Rotary projects throughout the year. 
Congratulations to Terry Daprile for receiving the pin for his fourth Paul Harris Fellow. We’re proud to have you as part of Boardman Rotary!
