Volunteer to assist elementary school children improve their reading skills.  In just one hour per week, you can change a child's life as well as your own.  There are no special skills required; just a willingness to share the "gift of Rotary". For more information on how you can participate, call or email Donna Treloar.  If you can't make an every week comitment, plan on volunteering as a substitute. Our club is so proud of the impact we have made over the past six years.  Just last year, one student improved from reading 16 words per minute at the beginning of the school year, to reading 68 words per minute at the end of the year.  Another improved from 20 words to 76 words per minute.  One teacher wrote "what would I do without you?"

Join us and share the "gift of Rotary". 

 

 

 

David Powdrell: just for fun I snapped a short 2 minute video clip on my iPhone of the wild and zany workings of the Rotary Brown Bag program last Tuesday.  Thought you might get a kick out of it.  Craig's always looking for more volunteers...if you've got an extra hour or two on early Tuesday mornings, come join us.

And he said it best..."Brown Bag is one of those programs that just makes you feel good." 

Doesn't Jay remind you of the Lucille Ball episode of the chocolate candy rapidly moving along on the conveyor belt?    

 

 
 
It is said that the strength of Rotary International is derived from each individual club and member. It follows therefore that enhanced clubs and members make for a more effective Rotary. Kick your Rotary life up a notch by reviewing the updates at GetRotary.org!

ROTARY INTERNATIONAL NEWS

Rotary, USAID collaboration improves sanitation facilities in Ghana
According to a 2012 report by UNICEF and the World Health Organization, Ghana has made great strides in providing its people with clean drinking water. But access to better sanitation has lagged. Only about 14 percent of Ghanaians have access to improved facilities, compared with the 54 percent target set for 2015 by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Addressing the issue isn't simple, as pit latrines need emptying, toilets need maintenance, and promoting hygiene requires education. The H2O Collaboration, a partnership between Rotary and the U.S. Agency for International...
How a simple school project in India became a global grant
Two years ago, U.S. Rotary members in Maine set out to improve the education system in Bikaner, Rajasthan, an Indian city near the border of Pakistan. The Rotary Club of Kennebunk Portside chose Bikaner because club member Rohit Mehta was originally from the area and had connections there. Mehta put the club in contact with Rotarians in India to provide desks for four government-run schools. But when community leaders returned with a request for more desks, the Maine Rotarians decided they had to think bigger. The Rotary Foundation had rolled out its new grant model, which required that the...
Korean sailor makes waves for End Polio Now
Enjoying calm winds and peaceful Pacific waters, Seung Jin Kim dove off his 43-foot sailboat, the Arapani, to swim with some dolphins nearby. The serenity that day near the equator was a stark contrast to the 60 mph winds and 23-foot waves he had to fight around Cape Horn, the southern tip of South America. But Kim, a veteran sailor and member of the Rotary Club of Seokmun, in Chungcheongnam, Korea, expected such challenges when he set out in mid-October on a 25,600-mile journey around the world. In addition to fulfilling a lifelong dream, Kim is using the trip to raise awareness and funds...
Monrovia club’s Ebola fight not finished
After the first cases of Ebola reached Liberia's capital, Monrovia, last June, local Rotary members feared that the city's limited health care system wouldn't be able to contain the highly infectious, often-deadly disease. Those fears were realized when infections quickly multiplied, underscoring the speed with which Ebola can spread in an urban center. It was the first time the hemorrhagic fever had threatened a major city since it erupted in West Africa last March. Now, after months of crisis-level response, and with the number of new cases declining, club members are looking to the long...
Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
