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 Day at the United Nations highlights the strength of partnerships
To strengthen their 69-year-old partnership, leaders from Rotary and the United Nations met this month in New York City for Rotary Day at the United Nations.

While the UN's Millennium Development Goals are set to expire in 2015, its leaders are preparing for an even more ambitious humanitarian agenda of eradicating extreme poverty by...
A major breakthrough against polio
Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) are approaching a significant milestone: the eradication of type 3 wild poliovirus.

Rotary has played an important role in bringing type 3 polio close to extinction. PolioPlus grants have provided key...
