Supports 4-H project at Clermont County Fair

 

Cincinnati Eastside Rotary donated 175 pounds of meat to local food pantries the week of September 14th to support the seasonal demands of those in need.  The meat was processed from a hog purchased by Cincinnati Eastside Rotary at the Clermont County Fair in August.  The hog was raised as a 4-H project of Patrick Kelley. Patrick, a resident of Owensville, is a graduate of Clermont Northeastern (CNE) High School.

 

“The most rewarding aspect of my pigs would certainly have to be witnessing how fast the pigs actually grow up. From farrowing in February to being knocked down by the same pigs in July, to over 200 pounds full grown in August,” said Kelley. In his first experience raising a hog, Patrick also faced some challenges along the way and was appreciative of the amount of support he received. “Seeing everyone work together leading up to the fair and preparing the grounds ahead of fair week was a wonderful experience.”

 

Patrick attends Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, as a student in its College of Business.  After graduation, he plans to pursue a career in sales and marketing and enjoyed his 4-H experience so much that he plans to show a hog at next year’s fair.

 

Cincinnati Eastside Rotary past-President Daren Donohoo led the effort to purchase Patrick’s hog, while fellow Rotarians Mary Eisnaugle and Gail Koford led the distribution.  Receiving meat donations from Cincinnati Eastside Rotary were Inter Parish Ministry, YWCA, and the James Sauls Homeless Shelter.

 

Cincinnati-Eastside Rotary engages in fellowship, service and education each Wednesday during luncheon meetings that begin at noon at Ivy Hills Country Club in Newtown.  Its members represent a vast range of business, non-profit and government leaders striving to improve communities.  For more information or to join, please visit www.CincinnatiEastsideRotary.org.
