Dear Global Coalition Member,
 
Several things have happened since our coalition meeting on March 19.  I’ll apprise you of those before moving forward with recommendations.
 
 
 
 

Joop Thiessen receives "Service Above Self" Award

At the District 5390 Conference, Joop Thiessen received the prestigious "Service Above Self" award.
 
Rotary’s highest honor recognizes Rotarians who demonstrate Rotary’s motto, Service Above Self, by volunteering their time and talents to help others.
 
The award is internationally competitive and is granted to no more than 150
Rotarians worldwide, and no more than one from each district, each year.
 
 
 
 
Rotary Basketball is the principal entry-level basketball program in the Flathead Valley. We anticipate between 800 and 1,000 youngsters will participate in the program this year. Please visit our Kalispell Rotary Basketball Website for more information or to register online. 
 
 
 
At our February 17th meeting we reviewed the newly organized Committee Structure Organizational Charts. Members, please take some time to review through the information on the Rotary Club of Kalispell Committee Structure so you can determine where your unique experience can be best applied to service for your club.
 
 

Welcome to Rotary eClub One, the world's first web based Rotary club, where you can make-up your missed credit for attendance. 

 
 
There are great Rotary Videos available on YouTube and plenty of additional information on FaceBook.  Want to introduce prospective members to Rotary Basics?

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. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.
Hall of Fame singer Donovan becomes a Rotary polio ambassador
Legendary singer and polio survivor Donovan Leitch, better known simply as Donovan, has joined Rotary in its fight to eradicate the paralyzing disease that afflicted him during much of his childhood. Donovan contracted polio at age three in Glasgow, Scotland. The disease weakened his right leg and left it thinner and shorter than the other. Confined to his bed for much of his childhood, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer said his father would read him poetry. In a recent interview with the Daily Express, Donovan said that listening to poetry piqued his interest in creative writing. “If I...
World Polio Day toolkit available — start planning now
Rotary's fourth World Polio Day celebration, on 24 October, will highlight extraordinary progress in the eradication campaign and emphasize the work that remains before we wipe out the virus for good. With the number of new cases worldwide nearly halved from this time last year, we have the opportunity to rally our resources and see the last case of polio this year. Health officials and Rotary's celebrity polio ambassadors will head to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for the event, the first to be held at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It will be streamed live and then will...
Young member uses leadership positions to promote diversity, inclusion
The way Rotary member Todd Jenkins puts it, he's the first generation in his family "to do everything": first to go to college, first to fly on a plane, first to visit another country, and the first to live across state lines. Jenkins, 28, grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. His family worked hard just to make ends meet. So travel and college seemed out of reach. The eldest of ten children, Jenkins says his goal was to break out of the family status quo and set a positive example for his siblings. He credits his mother with helping him avoid falling into the...
Rotary recommits to ending polio in Nigeria
The World Health Organization has confirmed two cases of wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) in Nigeria, the first cases in the country since July 2014. After passing a year without a case of the wild poliovirus, Nigeria was removed from the list of polio-endemic countries in September 2015. These cases – from two local government areas of Borno state – occurred in July 2016. The Government of Nigeria – in partnership with the Global Polio Eradication Initiative – will take immediate steps to respond quickly to the outbreak to prevent further spread of the disease. This response will include...
