The Rotary Club of San Diego, California, USA, was applauded for its work mentoring Monarch's students, keeping them on track to graduate, and helping the school to continue thriving during tough economic times.

Practicing peace
Nations around the world will observe the International Day of Peace on 21 September, a date designated by the United Nations in 2001 as "a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence." Rotary's commitment to building peace and resolving conflict is rooted in the Rotary Peace Centers program, formed in 2002. Each year, the program prepares up to 100 fellows to work for peace through a two-year master's degree program or a three-month professional certificate program at university partners worldwide. Today, nearly 1,000 peace centers alumni are applying their skills — negotiating peace in conflict...

Rotary district collecting relief funds for Louisiana flood victims
Rotary clubs of District 6200 are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana, USA, earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.

A very special THANK YOU to all those that volunteered their time, their services, their products, their knowledge, efforts in ensuring that my LAST big event during my term which was my Taste of Teaneck was truly a success in EVERY way. From restaurants, to tricky trays, to sponsors, to entertainment, to the Interact Club, and to volunteers -- all was perfectly orchestrated. I truly appreciated all the attendees that made this a success, all my friends, colleagues, the board members that I am involved in, my networking groups, my Rotary District members, and others that showed up to support me and my club.  A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to my Chair Joel Goldin and Co-Chair Liz Santos for volunteering their time knowing the amount of work required along with managing the entire project to make this a great event. They have gone the EXTRA MILE, along with the support of  my  volunteers for the event committee and the Tricky Tray committee to make this successful. I hold dear to control and knowing I had experience, skilled, and a ready to work SOLID TEAM on board made it easy for me. Truly appreciate finishing my term with a GREAT EVENT and raised money to donate to my chosen charities for 2015-2016.
 
 Truly THANK YOU.
