Rotarians have asked the African leaders to borrow a leaf from them and hand over power

to other leaders. "In rotary, there is a president, a president elect and a presidential nominee. Meaning that when I

am in power, I already know who is going to be next in the line. We lead for only one term.

Whatever you don't do in one year , you are done, because you don't stand again," said Hajati

Rhemah Kasule, the new elected president for Rotary club of Kampala- Impala.

Our Rotary Club Member Leslie, has a natural sense of bringing about connections in a rhythmic way that has community minded folks sitting up to take notice. This past Saturday I was invited to a performance at the beautiful Roosevelt Public Library, for a performance by Roosevelt Middle School students who were inspired and led by Leslie to perform several skits ranging from mime to poetry to story telling. We are all very proud of you Leslie for the way you see an opportunity and seize it. Not because there is something in it for you, because you know it will touch the life of a young person in some positive way. Kudos to you Rotarian Leslie, well done, don't change and thank you for being a friend and teacher of the community.
 
 
 
To all my friends: This is the end of our third day in Sierra Leone. 
To recap, Day One, Saturday, Dr. Robert Rowen and I, taught about 85 doctors, nurses and health care workers all about ozone therapy and how it can destroy the Ebola virus...

Dear Friends 

if you have not yet managed to pass it on or play it forward, it is humble request you do to these children in Uganda to receive education which is $ 0.5 dollar per day.

It is with great pleasure for God’s protection for all of us at our respective places and making us reach this important day. Much as myself is not physically seen but my message will still touch well.

 A Club Service Project of Rotary E-Club of District 7250

What is a Rotary e-club?  How does it work?

Please make sure you familiarized yourself with this material before our meeting on February 2, 2013

 What is the purpose of a Rotary e-club?

The purpose of a Rotary e-club is to extend Rotary to business, professional and community leaders in any Rotary District who are unable to meet traditional attendance requirements. Inability to attend a traditional Rotary club could be the result of demanding business or professional commitments, extensive travel, confinement due to ill health or disability, or residence beyond reasonable distance from an existing Rotary club
 
 
 

 

 

 
 

Our E-Club's Support of the District's Gift of Life Program:


Image

The Gift of Life (GOL) is a major program in our District and is supported by most Rotary club's in the District.  The dinner also offers all our members a wonderful opportunity,  to reserve a table of ten and thus get together for a evening of fellowship and support the GOL program.  Thus, GOL would also become a E-Club project.

 
 
 
 

 
 

Please allow your E-Club president to share the following...

A little girl stood near a small church from which she had been turned away because it was 'too crowded.

'I can't go to Sunday School,' she sobbed to the pastor as he walked by.  Seeing her shabby, unkempt appearance, the pastor guessed the reason and, taking her by the hand, took her inside and found a place for her in the

Sunday school class. The child was so happy that they found room for her, and she went to bed that night thinking of the children who have no place to worship.

Some two years later, this child lay dead in one of the poor tenement buildings. Her parents called for the kindhearted pastor who had befriended their daughter to handle the final arrangements.

What's your Rotary story?


Use story telling to share your favorite Rotary experience with prospective members.


   The ability to inspire other people through our work is one of Rotary's greatest assets.  When we share a story about our experiences, we help to break down barriers, build friendships, and ultimately, attract new members.

   Rotary International President Sakuji Tanaka understands the power of storytelling, and encourages all Rotarians to share their Rotary experience. The new Telling Your Story Resource Kit  can help you create an inspiring message that will attract new members and motivate current Rotarians.

Rotary International
President’s Message


Image

We hear the word peace every day.  We hear it in the news, and we talk about it a great deal in Rotary. But most of us spend very little time thinking about what the word really means.

 On its simplest level, peace can be defined by what it is not.  It is a state of no war, no violence, and no fear. It means that you are not in danger of hunger, persecution, suffering, or poverty. But we can also define peace by what it is, and by what it can be. Peace can mean freedom of thought and speech, freedom of opinion and choice, and the ability for self-determination.

Rotary E-Club of District 7250 Mission to Haiti on June 15, 2012

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for sending the funds!  We delivered $1,400 of the money on this trip to La Feve School along with $10,000 of in-kind aid. Thechildren and teachers were very grateful.  We delivered the next $1,400 on our mission on July 28.

We did have the chance to share our project with the Rotary Club of Delmas near the Airport in Port-au-Prince  and please  see pictures below. 

Our mission was a huge success, and Timmy Thomas and Alana Joy sang at the camp with the children and provided a concert for the children at the orphanage in Mirebelais.   Here is some quick unedited footage from the Concert: http://traveltalkmedia.smugmug.com/Other/Airline-Ambassadors-Tell-Me/23646227_JJpsSq#!i=1914441553&k=QWjwx4J

Again, thank you and all the Rotary E Club members so much for the generous donation!

Comment from our District Governor Gabor Karsai:
 
The pictures are wonderful, the film clip is moving!
Congratulations on a successful trip! Thanks for sharing it.
I am particularly excited to see that you hooked up with a local Rotary club!
I hope that this will blossom into a great cooperative relationship between the two clubs for the benefit of the Haitian children.
Love and respect,
Gabor

A letter from a Rotarian that makes the point of the tragedy of Hurricane Sandy!

I know people are hurting in the Rockaways [and other places in Long Island and New Jersey], however, I am one Rotarian that was hit extremely hard in Howard Beach. I am the Immediate Past President (IPP) of the Rotary Club of Southwest Queens and have been devastated by the Hurricane.

Not only did I loose one-third of my home and my car (my only means of transportation besides walking) I own and operate a Day Care that has been destroyed as a result of Hurricane Sandy. The day care was submerged under salt water and raw sewage in a matter of minutes. Thank God we were closed at the time (evening) when the surge hit.

I have reached out to the families that have children in my day care and so far everyone seems not to be hurt, although some families lost their cars and parts if not all of their homes, as well as most of their possessions. Now we are all dealing with the aftermath.

Since everything we owned was overcome by the hurricane waters, we lost everything: books, strollers, high chairs, toys, cribs, rugs, swings, changing tables, toddler chairs and tables, cameras, computers, phone, etc. You name it - we lost it! The entire day care has now been gutted to the bare beams.

I honestly do not know if the day care can financially recover from the loss and fear that it won't. Although I feel a sense of obligation to my ten (10) staff members and the twenty-five (25) families in day care and twenty-eight (28) additional families in my pre-school program.

This program has been their only sense of "normal" since so many of the children were displaced during the storm and there is no telling when and if they can ever return to their homes. Two of my own staff members lost everything and are so grateful they have a job to come to (for now).

We need your help!

As a fellow Rotarian, I need your help for the sake of these children!

We all have food and clothing and basic necessities now (thanks to Red Cross and donations from various outlets), but we need assistance in the re-building process; assistance that FEMA and other agencies don't help with. We need to put the pieces back together, to get the place up and running so people can go to work and earn money to re-build their lives.
 
I am writing this today out of desperation for the children!

Frances O. Scarantino
Immediate Past President
The Rotary Club of Southwest Queens

Rotary district collecting relief funds for Louisiana flood victims
Rotary clubs of District 6200 are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana, USA, earlier this month.
