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!

Early cancer detection is saving lives in Sri Lanka
More than 20,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year in Sri Lanka, and many of them prove fatal. The Rotary Club of Colombo, Sri Lanka, set out 10 years ago to save some of those lives by establishing the Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Centre.  In partnership with the National Cancer Control Programme and the Ministry of Health, the center in Colombo has screened more than 35,000 patients, mostly low-income, and detected more than 7,500 cases of abnormalities that required further investigation. The Rotary Club of Birmingham, Alabama, USA, donated a mammography and ultrasound...

Rotary releases $40.3 million for polio immunization activities
Rotary is releasing $40.3 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds will help build on gains Rotary and its partners have been making in the fight to eradicate polio. Nigeria hasn’t seen a polio case since 24 July and the World Health Organization could remove it from the list of polio-endemic countries as soon as September if no cases are reported. Nigeria would have to go another two years without a case to be certified polio-free. But the...
Knocking down language barriers
Before the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, Russian was the predominant second language offered in Polish schools, leaving tens of thousands of Polish emigrants without the English skills they needed.   That has changed over the last 25 years. English proficiency drastically improved after the government reformed its education system in 1991. The country overhauled its teaching curriculum and materials and introduced English as the primary foreign language. As of 2013, Poland ranks 8th in the world in English proficiency. However, one segment of the population isn’t reaping...
