He’s helped to launch and lead two of the biggest annual events in Granville that benefit a large number of people.
But Bruce Westall’s contributions to the community don’t end there, and they go much deeper, his admirers say.
Westall, owner and operator of the Porch House Bed and Breakfast at the corner of South Pearl and East Maple streets, was presented the Granville Rotary Club’s prestigious Allen Avery Service Above Self Award on April 25.
The award is given annually to a Rotarian or member of the Granville community who consistently demonstrate “exemplary humanitarian service in any form and at any level, with an emphasis on personal volunteer efforts and active involvement in helping others.”

Dr. Karen Berdan is always busy in her optometry office on South Prospect Street — when she's not helping to screen kindergartners-to-be in an area school.

Berdan, who has owned and operated Granville Vision Center since 1989 after entering practice there in 1983, was presented the Granville Rotary Club's Vocational Service Award. It is presented to either a Rotarian or non-Rotarian who exemplify Rotary’s "second avenue of service" that encourages and fosters high ethical standards in business and professions.

On April 6, Granville Rotarian Donald Jones joined representatives from the Worthington AM Rotary Club and the Rotary Club of Ouanaminthe, Haiti in dedicating eight water wells in Ouanaminthe and its surrounding villages and countryside, an area where clean and safe drinking water is an incredible need. 

The dedication of the wells was the culmination of a two year journey during which the clubs obtained Rotary District 6690 and Rotary International grants to make this achievement possible.

To insure the sustainability of the project, the Rotary Club of Ouanaminthe identified a local committee for each well which will be responsible for its safety and maintenance.  With this local oversight, these eight wells will provide clean, safe water for years to come. Additionally, because the project came in under budget, it was anticipated that the remaining funds would be used to repair two additional wells.

During the visit, the three clubs discussed future opportunities for collaboration around issues of clean water, environmental education and sustainable food practices, and are looking forward to future projects.


All are invited to join Granville Rotarians the first Thursday of each month at Pilsners for Polio.  Starting at 5 pm, enjoy the adult beverage of your choice and $1 from each drink price will be donated to Polio Plus.  Over $1000 has been raised to help End Polio Now since we started this program!
