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.

ImageThank you Tom Grazier for ensuring that this was a successful Horse Show. Great job!  Also, thank you to Colleen Segarra who took care of everything to do with the horses and the 4-H participation.  You are a true partner to Rotary!

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


At our recent Installation Dinner District Governor Drew Kessler installed Amanda Gerkens as President of Middletown Rotary for the new year 2014-2015.  Congratulations, Amanda.Image



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.




Rotary AIDS day event turns spotlight on world’s deadliest infectious disease
The recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the worst ever, has claimed several thousand lives and generated worldwide concern. But its impact pales in comparison to that of AIDS, which, despite advances in treatment, still kills more than a million people a year, the majority of them in Africa. "Even with the Ebola outbreak at its worst expected levels, it's never going to reach what we've seen with the HIV/AIDS epidemic," said Dr. Timothy B. Erickson, director of the Center for Global Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, speaking at Rotary's World AIDS Day event in Evanston on 1...
Statement by Rotary International on the deadly school attack in Pakistan
Rotary International condemns the horrific attack that killed more than 130 schoolchildren and wounded over 100 of their classmates in Peshawar, Pakistan. We believe that children everywhere have the basic right to receive an education in an environment unthreatened by violence or fear. Rotary extends our heartfelt sympathy to all of the families in Pakistan, including those of seven Rotary members, who have lost children as a result of this unfathomable tragedy. We stand with them in mourning their loss. Gary C.K. Huang, PresidentRotary International
Indoor air pollution linked to millions of deaths
After decades dreaming about the Himalayas, Rotary member George Basch went on his first trek through the mountains in 2001, when he was 64. A member of the Rotary Club of Taos-Melagro in New Mexico, USA, Basch found that the experience was even more than he had hoped. "My expectations were high, and dramatically exceeded," he remembers. But a less-than-pleasant aspect of the experience was the indoor smoke pollution he encountered in the guest houses and private homes he visited. Many families in the Himalayas use rudimentary cookstoves or, in some cases, an open fire pit inside the home to...
Rotary staff members bond over Miles to End Polio bike ride
For six staff members from Rotary headquarters in Evanston, the fight to eradicate polio has become personal. Together, they biked the physically grueling 104-mile (167-kilometer) Tour de Tucson in Arizona, USA, collectively raising more than $20,000 for polio eradication while putting their bodies and minds through a feat of endurance. For the tightknit group, the experience was about more than just raising money and crossing the finish line. It was about learning about each other and what Rotary members are doing to rid the world of this crippling disease. They advocated together, trained...
How a simple school project in India became a global grant
Two years ago, U.S. Rotary members in Maine set out to improve the education system in Bikaner, Rajasthan, an Indian city near the border of Pakistan. The Rotary Club of Kennebunk Portside chose Bikaner because club member Rohit Mehta was originally from the area and had connections there. Mehta put the club in contact with Rotarians in India to provide desks for four government-run schools. But when community leaders returned with a request for more desks, the Maine Rotarians decided they had to think bigger. The Rotary Foundation had rolled out its new grant model, which required that the...
