At its September 30, 2014 meeting the Rotary Club of New Providence was delighted by the presentation of the Assistant District Rotoract Representative, Taran Mackey.  The ADRR shared his very insightful views on the way that Rotarians could bridge the gap between Rotoractors and Rotary to ensure the transition to Rotary once they age out from Rotoract.  Taran noted that conducting joint projects, encouraging attendance at Rotary meetings by Rotoractors and general engagement and mentorship are only some of the ways to ensure and encourage the transition. Specifically referencing RCNP Taran noted that some of the benefits that RCNP could leverage in attracting Rotoractors are the fact that we are the only Rotary Club that meets in the evening, the average age of Members being under one hundred and the fact that we have great parties all while working very hard.  Thanks Taran for a great presentation.

RCNP looks forward to an equally exciting vocational presentation by Dr. Andre Clarke at its meeting on Tuesday October 7, 2014.

At this weeks meeting the RCNP was addressed by the esteemed PDG Eddie Bostwick who addressed the club on what it means to be a Rotarian...keys elements required PDG Eddie concluded are 'commitment, engagement, responsibility and integrity".  The PDG espoused further the differences between being a Member and being Rotarian challenging all present to rise to the call of being a Rotarian by engaging in Rotary to ensure the continued success of the Club.  The address was particularly timely as it was guest night and Members of the Club had invited various potential Rotarians to attend the meeting. PDG's address was sure to enshrine the concept of what a commitment to becoming a Rotarian would mean, should these potential Members decide to take up this awesome responsibility.  The RCNP thanks PDG Bostwick for his insightful contribution.

RCNP Members hard at work - cleaning windows at the Children's Emergency Hostel.  This task added sunshine and ray of hope to the children of this facility. They were also appreciative of the kind gesture in donation of pampers and wet wipes.  Members had fun, as they washed, and shined windows, as well as, was able to take in a moment of fellowship with cool refreshments after toiling in the sun and rain.  Once again, Rotarians doing what they love and mandated to do - Service Above Self.

RCNP members have come together again to give service above self, where on Saturday, July 26th, 2014 they donated and spread soil at the Nazareth Centre, Millennium Gardens, to create a vegetable garden for the facility.  Members were toiling in the Summer heat, tilling, and shoveling soil. The big boys and their "Tonyka Toys" - heavy equipment were out in full effect; the ladies even had a play with the big boys' toys.  Even though it was hard work, gratification, fun, and fellowship was had by all.

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. The two organizations began working together with the aim of maintaining peace after World War II. Today, the relationship has evolved to include humanitarian work in areas like gender equality, child and maternal health, and disease treatment and prevention. 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. The last case of polio caused by the type 3 virus was reported in Yobe, Nigeria, on 10 November 2012. "We may have eradicated a second of three; that's a major milestone," said Dr. Stephen Cochi, a senior adviser at the Center for Global Health at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, speaking to the BBC. Rotary has played an important role in bringing type 3 polio close to extinction. PolioPlus grants have provided key...
