Bob Hummel of the Granger Township Historical Society Museum & Library recently hosted the Medina Sunrise Rotary Club. "Originally built between 1840-43, the Granger Historical Society's Western Reserve-style home was the residence of Dr. Hill, who practiced medicine in the front room for many years, related Bob. "Helen, who was the daughter of S. Irvin and Cynthia Work Thompson, purchased t...he house years later and donated the home and all of its contents to Granger Township. She wished to provide a museum for the benefit of others, especially children. Within the historical society's library today, one will find a generous donation of books, Indian artifacts and primitive native tools, blacksmithing and carpenter tools, a large school bell and class composites of graduates from Granger and Highland schools, World War I and II memorabilia, a beautiful doll collection, county histories, and family genealogies."

The Medina Sunrise Rotary Club took the opportunity to learn more about the center and is an active benefactor of the Highland area.
The club’s contributions include annual scholarships for graduating high school seniors, Rotary Youth Exchange and high schools leadership programs, support for the Highland Community Support Network, the construction of a pavilion at Granger Park, and the Mugrage Park Inclusive Playground for Children, along with other worthwhile local projects. Medina Sunrise Rotary Club supports its community giving programs through its annual Wine & Roses Benefit Dinner to be held at Weymouth Country Club on February 10,.2018.
