Please be sure to email me with any news you would like placed here.
With deepest sympathy
A longtime former Akron Rotarian, Christine Freitag, recently passed away. Our prayers are with her family. View full obituary. 
Congratulations to...


Christian is the son of Rotarian Kimmie Hoch and grandson of Mr. Bob Hoch, retired Akron Police Officer and former Summit County Sheriff's Office Special Deputy.  Christian is a cadet (Second Lieutenant) in the Civil Air Patrol with North Canton Composite Squadron 278. Only 15 percent of Civil Air Patrol cadets ever obtain the Mitchell Award.

This prestigious award is the second milestone in the cadet program and marks the completion of Phase II, the Leadership Phase.

Within Civil Air Patrol, Mitchell Award winners are eligible for scholarships, Cadet Officer School and Civic Leadership Academy. Any cadet who has earned this award, and who later enters CAP's Senior Member program, is eligible for immediate promotion to CAP Second Lieutenant at age 21. Cadets who receive the Billy Mitchell Award also are eligible for advanced placement to the grade of E-3 (Airman First Class) should they choose to enter the US Air Force.

Christian will be a sophomore at Lake High School this fall. We congratulate him and the entire Hoch family for a job well done.
