Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country. With...

Partners build community center and health clinic in impoverished Mexico neighborhood
Four years ago, Rotary member Moonyeen King decided to take action to help residents of the impoverished neighborhood of Tepehua, located in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico, who faced daily struggles with crime, malnutrition, and limited access to health care. King, together with Susan Netherton and Gin Pelzl, fellow members of the Rotary Club of Ajijic, turned an abandoned building into the Tepehua Community Center. For its first year, the center provided a soup kitchen every Friday to feed over 200 women and children. That enabled King and her fellow Rotary members to gain the trust of the...
The White House honors Rotary women for their humanitarian service
Senior Rotary leaders gathered Tuesday at the White House to honor 10 women for their service projects, an event attended by members of U.S. President Barack Obama's senior staff. The Rotary members presented their projects, in the hopes of creating new inroads for government partnerships and support. "This is recognition of the great work that they do but also serves as a great vehicle to inspire others to do similar kinds of things," said Rotary General Secretary John Hewko. "One of the things we're doing a better job of is sharing our story to the non-Rotary world." The honorees were...

Area 5 - Four Club Social
 
The four Rotary Clubs that make up Area 5 within our District (Duvall, Mill Creek, Redmond and Sammamish) decided to get together and have a social.
 
It was a chance to meet each other, network and to celebrate the various projects what they have accomplished. Rotarians, spouses and friends were invited.  In addition potential members were invited, which proved to be very effective.
 
The idea was generated at PETS (Presidents Elect Training Seminar) last year.  The incoming presidents agreed that it would be a great idea to get together.
 
Three clubs showed movies or slide shows highlighting there activities.  Duvall brought their display from last year’s District Conference that was use in the Fellowship Hall.
 
It was a great time for all.
