Strongsville Rotary Foundation President Bob Berendsen at the club's October 22 meeting presented a $4,500 donation to the Ron Trayte, properties director for the Cuyahoga County Fair Board. The donation will be used to refurbish the floor of the Arts and Crafts Building, also known as the Chili Open building.
Bob noted that our club has a long relationship with the fairgrounds. The fairgrounds were a 2007 Chili Open charity recipient and in 2001 we donated $1,000 toward the construction of the gazebo.
