"Fly the Flag" Program!
The "Fly the Flag" Program is one of our largest fundraisers and has become a cherished tradition in Austintown! Your participation not only beautifies our neighborhoods but also fosters a sense of unity and pride among residents.
Flag installations will begin the week of May 1st where our volunteers will install a flag in your front yard and it will remain for the following holidays: Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Patriot Day, and Veterans Day. *ATTENTION: New flag orders after May 20th will not be installed by Memorial Day, but they will be installed as soon as possible. 
This fundraiser directly benefits Fitch Girls Volleyball, Fitch Band, Fitch Swim Team, and the St. Christines Scout Troop. 
Each flag is $35.
Thank you for your generous support of Austintown Rotary!
Club Stories

Rotary and the United Nations have a shared history of working toward peace and addressing humanitarian issues around the world.

During World War II, Rotary informed and educated members about the formation of the United Nations and the importance of planning for peace. Materials such as the booklet “From Here On!” and articles in The Rotarian helped members understand the UN before it was formally established and follow its work after its charter. 

Many countries were fighting the war when the term “United Nations” was first used officially in the 1942 “Declaration by United Nations.” The 26 nations that signed it pledged to uphold the ideals expressed by the United States and the United Kingdom the previous year of the common principles “on which they based their hopes for a better future for the world.” 


An estimated 500 million people worldwide became infected. Many cities closed theaters and cinemas, and placed restrictions on public gatherings. Rotary clubs adjusted their activities while also helping the sick.

This is how Rotary responded to the influenza pandemic that began in 1918 and came in three waves, lasting more than a year.

Every hero has an origin story. “I was 10 years old when the entire journey started,” explains Binish Desai. It began with a cartoon called Captain Planet, an animated TV series from the 1990s about an environmentalist with superpowers. Desai can still recite the show’s refrain: Captain Planet, he’s our hero / Gonna take pollution down to zero! “That tagline stuck in my mind,” he says. “I wanted to do something to help Captain Planet.”
