Every summer, beginning in May, the North Columbus Civitan Club presents a concert series. The concerts take place every Sunday evening in the gazebo at Whetstone Park, in Clintonville*. Acts range from local bands and choirs, to the Ohio State alumni band! Concerts last for an hour (from 7:00-8:00PM). There are free snow cones if the weather cooperates. Best of all, admission is absolutely free! You can even bring your dog!
*Only if the weather is nice- the rain location is in the Whetstone Park shelterhouse.
It may not be the Memorial Tournament or the Masters, but this event at The OSU Golf Course is always a hit! The winner of the contest is anyone who can hit a hole-in-one on the 18th hole of the Scarlet or Gray Course. For a $2 donation you get a shot at $250! If you get your ball onto the green you get a free golf ball of your choice. All proceeds and donations go to The Dr. Sam Rosen Scholarship, a $1,000 scholarship for local students. Come out on August 5th and take a shot! Everyone walks away a winner!
The North Columbus Civitan Club holds its meetings at the Clintonville Woman's Club. The meetings take place on the first and third Thursdays of the month. The meetings serve as a planning venue for upcoming events and a forum for local speakers on topics of the day. Refreshments are usually served. Everyone is welcome. Meetings usually last from 6:30-8pm but you can come and go as you please. Join us to help plan exciting new events for the Clintonville/Beechwold Special Needs Community.
The North Columbus Civitan Club is a proud partner of Special Olympics Ohio. Civitan volunteers can be found at events throughout the year. This includes the
annual state games, held at the The Ohio State University. The snow cones that the volunteers serve up for athletes and spectators alike are always a hit!
Every year, the North Columbus Civitan Club awards the Dr. Samuel Rosen Scholarship. The scholarship goes to students who intend to pursue careers that further the ideals of the Civitan club as a whole. Recipients should also uphold Dr. Rosen's own interests and love for community service. He served his community throughout his life as both an educator and a volunteer.
The most recent recipient of the scholarship is Nicholas Lenyo. In the fall of 2018, he will be attending The Ohio State University, where he will be studying to become a doctor.
If you're an organization that needs volunteers or assistance with a project, don't hesistate to get in touch with us. We're always ready and willing to help!
