At the March 17, 2015, Board meeting Past President Curt Werren updated the Board on the Endowment Committee's review of a potential 100 Year Anniversary project.  The Endowment Committee voted and recommended that the Rotary Club of Canton should commit One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000.00) for the naming rights on the new "Market Square" Project.  
After a lengthy discussion, a Motion was made by the Board to commit $100,000.00 for naming rights on the band stand (stage) located on Market Square (Old Kresge Property).  The Board then approved this Motion.
On Monday, September 28, 2015, President Paul White, Past President Tom Clevenger, Endowment Committee Chairman Curt Werren and Past District Governor Bob Pattison attended the Canton City Council meeting.  At this meeting, President Paul White presented a copy of a check for $100,000.00 to the Canton City Council for seed money to get said project on the move.
There are conditions with the donation to assure the money goes to this project.  If said conditions are not met, the donation will be refunded back to the Rotary Club of Canton for future projects.
