Ada Rotary Club beginnings

By Leland Crouse
The Ada Rotary Club opened its membership to women in 1990. Karen Cooper, assistant to the law dean at Ohio Northern University, became the first women member when she was inducted into the organization by Dave Retterer, club president. Cooper is not entirely new to the Rotary, for she belonged to the Rotary Ann Club when her husband, Ken, was a Rotarian in Ft. Dodge, Iowa.
