In the News

Dr. Richard Homan, president of EVMS, talked about the impact EVMS has on the health of the Hampton Roads area.

Brian Stevens, CEO of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce, outlined the strategies used to keep Hampton Roads vibrant with a focus on job creation, lessening the economic dependence upon the military, and improving infrastructure. 

Norfolk Rotary Charities has made a donation of ShelterBox USA in response to the Nepal earthquake disaster.
A 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal on April 25 killing an estimated 8,000 and injuring over 16,000.  The immediate needs of the hundreds of thousands earthquake victims are for shelter, clean water and food.
ShelterBox was adopted by the Rotary Club Helton-Lizard in Cornwall, England in 2000 as its millennial project.  Since then, it has aided more than 1,000,000 people in more than 240 disasters and humanitarian crises throughout the world.  The ShelterBox is a self-contained unit which provides for essential daily living needs.  Although customized for the region, it includes a tent large enough to house a family, thermal blankets and groundsheets, water storage and purification, solar lamps, cooking utensils, a basic tool kit, mosquito netting and children’s activity packs. 
To date, ShelterBox has aided more than 5,000 in Nepal. 
Thank you for your contributions to the Norfolk Rotary Foundation.  Your generosity has made this outreach to the people of Nepal possible. 

Rodger Schoonover explained that much of the conflict in the Middle East involving the United States can be traced to a different mindset.

Past President John Padgett (r) was presented with the inaugural Club Builder Award by District Governor Stephen Beer (c).  The award signifies John's recruitment of new members to the club, vocational service and being active in District 7600 affairs.  

Fresh off a flight from England, Victoria Melody accompanied by Major Tom, an 84 pound basset hound, delighted Rotarians with tales (or should that be tails?) of being in beauty pageants and dog shows. 

Jerry Frostick explained his love of running paired with the love of his wife, Amy, and Hampton Roads, makes the business of organizing the Shamrock Marathon (among other events) a joy.  He spoke to Rotarians today, April 7, 2015 on the stage at Chrysler Hall.
