Fall Super Bingo  

Typically, 200+ bingo players participate in our Super Bingo held in Spring and Fall.  Through the generosity of those who play, we are able to raise funds that go to support many local causes.  Our fall Super Bingo is coming right up: October 5th at the St. Johnsbury Academy Fieldhouse.  We hope to see you there!

 

 

Outgoing President Charlie Browne named Jim Jung as Rotarian of the Year.  The honor was bestowed during the club's recent Changeover Meeting held July 21 at the Rotary Centennial Pavilion in St. Johnsbury. Jung serves Rotary in many capacities.  To name a few, he is chairman of the club's Rotary Foundation, and coordinator of the RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) and Rotary Speech Contest.

Our Rotary Basketball Tournament promotes good sportsmanship among the 500-plus students from Northern Vermont and New Hampshire whose teams participate each year.  The two-week tournament is also our Club's biggest annual fundraiser.  The proceeds support sending children to summer camps.

Historically, funds from our Tourament and other funds raised by our club have supported the following St. Johnsbury Rotary Club projects:

• Literacy and education: Our club distributes 240 dictionaries and atlases to local schoolchildren each year
• Everybody Wins, an after school reading/mentoring program
• Scholastic Achievement Awards to college-bound students
• Northeast Kingdom Youth Services (NEKYS)
• First Night
• Four area Red Cross Blood Drives collecting 700 pints of blood annually
• Meals on Wheels
• Shared Heat
• The Santa Fund
and many more local projects.

Tips to help your club find and nurture a Youth Exchange host family
With 12 children -- six girls and six boys -- the Labordes hardly needed to add another member to their family. But they did: Over 40 years ago, Julia Mullikin, a Rotary Youth Exchange student from the United States, became like another daughter to this large family in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. "She's been a blessing for us," says Maria Victoria Hallal de Laborde who was 18 when Mullikin arrived in 1973. Like many exchange students, Mullikin remains close to her host family. So close that when one of Laborde's sisters was diagnosed with a rare, fatal disease, Mullikin arranged to send the...
Free vegetable gardens sprouting up around France
Imagine a community where the residents are all free to plant, grow, harvest, and eat healthy food whenever they want without having to pay for it. Sound too good to be true? That's exactly what residents of more than 20 cities and towns in France are doing through a project called Potalib. Launched by the Rotaract Club of Versailles, Potalib was inspired by the Incredible Edible project, an international food-sharing movement founded by Nick Green in England. The Rotaract members obtained Green's permission to apply the concept in France, changing the name to "Potalib," a contraction of "...
Anti-vaccine movement may have global repercussions
Supporters of the anti-vaccine movement question the safety, efficacy and necessity of the very medicines that have so greatly reduced our children's risk of catching a host of once-common but potentially very serious infectious diseases, such as mumps, measles and whooping cough. And then there's polio, the disabling, sometimes fatal virus that was every American parent's worst nightmare until effective vaccines were developed in the 1950s — and which still infects children in the developing world. Some who oppose vaccines are well-meaning parents who have come to believe — wrongly in the...
Rotary’s Response to Ebola Outbreak
Rotary continues to follow the developments surrounding the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and advice of the World Health Organization and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, our partners in international public health. Strengthening the health infrastructure and supporting and sustaining the deployment of government health workers throughout these outbreak areas are greatly needed. Although Rotary has limited opportunities to respond at a corporate level, our strength as an organization is firmly rooted in the grassroots response of Rotary clubs and Rotarians. Clubs around the...
Since Boys' Week, Rotary has been empowering young leaders
The history of Rotary's work with youth dates back to the 1920s, when many clubs took part in an international event known as Boys' Week. The first Boys' Week was held in New York City in May 1920 by the Rotary Club of New York and other local organizations. The event was part of an effort to promote youth development in the areas of education, citizenship, health and hygiene, and vocation. New York club members reported on the success of Boys' Week at the 1920 Rotary convention, hoping that it would become part of the Boys' Work program, which Rotary had established several years earlier...
