What We Learned About Our Community

Today we heard from Tom Candelaresi. He has a financial service business and has a non-profit called the American Financial Educators Alliance.

Tom is currently a member of the Cincinnati Eastside Rotary, but was our Batavia Club President in 1987-88 during our 50th anniversary year. During that year they celebrated on the B&B Riverboats. Back in those days they served at Camp Allen, did an annual spaghetti dinner, did an easter egg hunt at Sycamore Park, and established the flag stand in Batavia. The thing Tom remembers most is that they met at 7am on Saturday mornings above the old post office in Batavia. The part that amazed Tom was that so many came out to be a part of Rotary at that time of day on a Saturday.
