Winona Ruritan Club

The Winona Ruritan Club held it’s July meeting July 26 at the Winona Friends Church. President Rob Doyle Jr. called the meeting to order at 7 p.m. and led the group in singing “America.” Vice President Homer Althouse gave the invocation. The caterer, Chris Phillis, served a dinner consisting of roast pork loin, mashed potatoes, green beans, tossed salad with choice of dressing, rolls and butter and banana split salad for dessert. Water, iced tea and coffee were available.

Secretary Lee Stamp called the roll of members with 20 members and two guests being present. He read the minutes of July Baord of Directors meeting, which were approved as read. Treasurer Bob Doyle Sr. gave the June financial report with a favorable ending balance. His report was approved as given.

Everyone present sang “Happy Birthday” to the only member born in July, David Gillis.

In previous years the club had as guests Boys and Girls that had attended the American Legion Buckeye Boys and Girls State programs. Unfortunately the Hanoverton Legion and the Auxiliary have disbanded and United Local Schools did not have a sponsoring Legion. The club will be reaching out to other Legions to see if it can be a sponsor for the worhthwhile program in 2023.

Stamp reported the club has a few projects to complete prior to the Oct. 15 Pancake and Sausage Breakfast, the wrong dates for which were published in the August “Whats Happening in Ohio Ruritan.” It is the third Saturday of October. The club has 20 pounds of bulk sausage and 6 pounds of smoked link, frozen, for sale at $5 per pound. Rob Donaldson, owner of Horst Meats, has the butcher date on his calendar.

The subject of making Scrapple was discussed. The club will be taking orders through Sept. 30. for scrapple and whole hog sausage, bulk, patties and smoked links. After Sept. 30 it will be first come, first served.

The club has purchased its rifle for the October Gun Raffle from Runzo’s Outdoor Sports. It is a Henry-made in America Big Boy rifle in .357 caliber. Tickets will be available to sell at the club’s Aug 23 meeting.

The 2023 Ohio District Spring Banquet is scheduled for April 15 at the Paradise United Church of Christ in Louisville.

Tom Sanor apologized for the poor quality of the American flags that were posted at each veterans grave at Woodsdale Cemetery. The township has contacted the company and also replaced many flags at the cemetery.

The Columbiana County Soil & Water District will be presenting a program at the Aug. 23 meeting.

Everyone rose and pledged allegiance to the American flag.
