Nadia Allen, Executive Director for Mental Health Association in Orange County gave a very informative talk about her organization and the numerous services they provide to the residents of our county. Nadia was very well received and Rotarians showed their appreciation with their Happy Dollars.  President Amanda presented her with a check for $500 which totally surprised Nadia.  She was extremely grateful and promised that the money would be put to good use addressing the mental health needs of our community.

Congratulations to all the Rotarians in our District 7210!
We have contributed a total of $185,904.91 in the last year to our Foundation that includes $30,702.77 for Polio Plus (which Gates Foundation will match 2:1)  Even though we did not make $100 per member on our annual giving I am proud of our district. We gave per capita $90.02.  (We have 1,693 members.)  The sad part is we still have 10 clubs who did not give any money to the Foundation!  Hopefully we can do a lot better and now we need to train more people and have a Foundation chair in each club!
A reminder, on November 9, 2014 we will have our annual Foundation Brunch at West Point and I hope we will have an unprecedented number of Rotarians showing up!  I am trying to get an exciting speaker-a peace scholar and hopefully a Foundation trustee also.
Thanks again for making this last year a fantastic year for our Foundation!
Yours in Rotary,
Tam Mustapha

RI President Gary C.K. Huang chose Light Up Rotary as his theme for 2014-15. Huang is urging club members to Light Up Rotary by hosting a Rotary Day in their community, continuing our fight against polio, and increasing club membership. "Light Up Rotary is more than our theme. It is how we make a difference — every day, in every club, and every country we serve."

The Historic Walking Tour is nearing completion.  The phone voicemail boxes are being built now and the recorded messages will be loaded in the voicemail system next.  Most of the signs have sponsors and will be placed at each location.  Some of the key community people who have helped with this project will attend our June 10th meeting for recognition by the club. 

Middletown Rotary is participating in the 125th birthday celebration of the City of Middletown by developing a walking tour of notable buildings and businesses that are part of the history of our city.  In partnership with Frontier Communications, tourists and local residents will be able to walk this route and listen to audio recordings of a short synopsis of the buildings and landmarks before them.

Miles to end polio: $6 million crosses the finish line for polio eradication
Rotary General Secretary John Hewko and six RI staff members bicycled 104 miles in Tucson Arizona, USA, on Saturday, for the Miles to End Polio event, raising more than $6 million for polio eradication. The money raised by Rotary will receive a two-to-one match from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. In addition to the team from Evanston, 100 Rotary member riders took part in the ride. The fundraising ride is part of the annual El Tour de Tucson bike event in Tucson, Arizona, USA. The race attracts more than 9,000 cyclists a year, making it one of the top cycling events in the U.S. The...
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...
Rotary’s World Polio Day live-streamed event is a huge success
More than 23,000 viewers in 24 countries tuned in to Rotary's World Polio Day event, streamed live on 24 October. Health officials including James Alexander, senior medical epidemiologist for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gave an update on the polio eradication campaign and praised Rotary's achievements to date. Rotary has contributed more than $1.2 billion to polio eradication since 1979. For World Polio Day, Rotary released $44.7 million in grants to fight the disease in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. In addition to the update, the event included entertainment by...
Malala Yousafzai wins the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize
Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager shot in the head for speaking out against the Taliban in support of girls' education, has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2014. Yousafzai, whose father is a Rotarian, shares the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, a native of India who has worked to combat the exploitation of children for financial gain, according to an announcement in October from the Norwegian Nobel Committee. In announcing the award, the committee praised Yousafzai for demonstrating that "children and young people, too, can contribute to improving their own situations." It noted...
