AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WYTV)) — Austintown Rotary is trying to get the entire community involved in service opportunities.
It’s starting a community corps program.
It’s designed for people who want to volunteer but don’t have the time for weekly rotary meetings.
There’s no cost to join– and members will meet once a month.
If there’s not much going on, there won’t be a meeting.
“A lot of people like to give back if you ask them and that’s what we’re doing right now, we’re just asking everybody that wants to be a part of it, come on out and get involved with us,” said Mark Cole, Austintown Rotary Commission Corps.
“There’s no better feeling than helping somebody and that feeling of accomplishment and putting a smile on somebody’s face,” said Robert McFarland, a Rotary member.
One of the reasons Austintown Rotary is starting the program is its flag project.
Austintown has 172 flags in the community right now– and needs help passing more out, and installing them for homeowners.
