Club members enjoyed the final 2014 club meeting on December 17th with signing of holiday songs by the Trio Bella Amore singers.  Members and several guests filled the tables and enjoyed chatting with friends and enjoyed our lunchtime meal.  A Santa hat was passed to collect monies that were presented to Joan, our waitress.  She was very pleased with our gesture of kindness, and said that we are all like family.  She had decorated up the Rotary Room with a holiday theme including Poinsettias and a lit Christmas Tree. 
May you ALL have a very BLESSED holiday period, and we’ll all join again, next year (Jan 7th) for more Rotary fun.

Our dear long-time Rotary friend, Randy Krumland, announced his retirement after 24 years with our club, effective December 9, 2014.  His humor and energy will certainly be missed.  Randy identified a need to simplify his life which included making more times available for other things, and unfortunately, his time commitment to Rotary came up on his “relinquish time list”. 
My short time in this club results in memories of Randy’s wonderful and side-splitting humor.  His skill to arrange a comedown party and cleverly roast a soon-to-be past-president is legendary. 
We wish Randy and his wife Gemma so much fun, joy, and excitement in the new activities that they pursue!  Rock On!
John Hollenbeck

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...
