This Week's Speaker
Justice Pat DeWine
Supreme Court of Ohio
Pat DeWine has been a member of the Ohio Supreme Court since January 2017.  Prior to his election to the Supreme Court, Justice DeWine served for four years on the First District Court of Appeals, and prior to that, for four years on the Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.
Justice DeWine is an adjunct professor at the University of Cincinnati College of Law where he teaches Appellate Practice and Procedure.  In addition, he has taught undergraduate courses at the University of Cincinnati in Ohio Government & Politics and American Courts.
Justice DeWine graduated from the University of Michigan Law School in the top ten percent of his class with Order of the Coif honors.  He received his undergraduate education at Miami University, where he earned summa cum laude honors.  He was also a member of the Varsity Track and Cross Country teams.
After law school, he clerked for the Honorable David A. Nelson on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.  Justice DeWine later practiced law for 13 years in Cincinnati with Keating, Muething & Klekamp, where he handled a diverse range of litigation matters, including appellate litigation, mass tort bankruptcies, and constitutional issues.  
Prior to becoming a judge, Justice DeWine served as a Hamilton County Commissioner and a member of Cincinnati City Council.  He was a founder of the Build Cincinnati reform group that successfully passed a charter amendment to allow Cincinnati voters to directly elect the Mayor.

We need your help recruiting participants for Alex Sheen‘s “Because I Said I Would” 8-week Unemployment Transitional Program that helps with leadership development, job search and networking opportunities for those that have lost work due to COVID.  Alex offered us a $5,000 grant to fill 10 scholarships, through our Community Service Committee and the Cleveland Rotary Foundation we were able to secure a $5,000 match.  This will allow 15 applicants to participate offering $500 stipends to those that finish the program. 
The link for the application is as follows: have them include Rotary Club of Cleveland as their referral so they can be eligible for the $500 stipend.  The only stipulation is the job loss must be from Covid 19.   
"Service Above Self" Volunteer opportunities
Our Community Service Committee is doing a fabulous job providing volunteer opportunities for both those that are comfortable to go out and for those that want to volunteer right from their home. If you are doing something to help the community please send a picture and a description, we want to recognize you!!  
The Greater Cleveland Food Bank has an upcoming volunteer day, January 12 from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. They are seeking 10+ volunteers.  If interested please click the following link to register: 
American Red Cross Blood Donor Day, January 28, 2021.  For every 1 donation, 3 lives can be saved!  Need we say more?  This is a great opportunity for the entire family, a friend, or colleague to join you and make a difference! Due to natural disasters and Covid - 19 the need has never been greater! If donating blood isn't possible, there are plenty of other volunteer opportunities available.
