The year 1950 was a very busy year for Wooster Rotary beginning with the election of William C. Craig as Wooster President. Soon after his election the Wooster Rotary hosted its first District Assembly. The daytime sessions were held at Taylor Hall on the Campus of The College of Wooster. The evening session was held in the assembly hall of the Wooster Methodist Church. Wooster Rotary was also awarded the Governor’s Award for being the outstanding club in District 229.
In 1950 the Wooster Club also restructured Community Service Committees to include:

Easter Seal Committee under the leadership of Charles Sauder. This committee was charged with raising funds for the Easter Seal Campaign for crippled children.

The Youth Service Committee under the leadership of Louie Carter was charged with the Rotator Program and the Christmas Party for the Children’s Home and other projects which benefit local children as the need arises.

The Child Welfare Committee was headed by Bill Schultz and was to benefit local youth who were in need of services. “Probably no committee in the Club so typifies the spirit of Rotary.” The committee is charged with obtaining glasses, braces for teeth and any other aids necessary for life that cannot be obtained by their families.

The Rural-Urban Committee is charged with the annual Farmers’ Day program and strengthening the relationship between the agriculture and urban committees which make up the Wooster Community. No Chair was listed in the announcement.

The Community Projects Committee was under the direction of the Board of Directors and was charged with response to requests that better the community or seeking out projects that appeal to the spirit of Wooster Rotary. The Committee was also charged with presenting specific programs to the membership which highlight and promote public and private agencies which serve the Wooster area.
