2015:  100 YEARS OF ROTARY LONDON

We are celebrating big and we want you to share it with us!

 
 
March is Rotary Literacy  Month
For most of us, reading and writing are as natural as breathing. But nearly 800 million adults worldwide lack the literacy skills needed to complete a job application, understand a child’s report card, or read a prescription. RI and the International Reading Association know that literacy is an essential ingredient for reducing poverty, improving health encouraging community and economic development, and promoting peace. Since 2002 , RI and IRA have combined their resources and skill to advance literacy in communities worldwide by: - Providing books and educational materials; - Building and supporting schools; - Mentoring students, training teachers; - Establishing literacy programs for children and adults.
 
We are doing much the same. In London we are part of the Area 4 Dictionary program (a dictionary for each grade 3 student).  Internationally we are sending students to school in Danli, Honduras and supplying school furniture, supplies, and computers in Haiti.  We are working together to improve literacy worldwide.

As part of our Celebration of 100 Years of Service Above Self the Club’s Rotary Foundation of Rotary International Annual Programs Fund (APF) and PolioPlus campaigns are taking a slightly different direction this year. For each member who moves from their current Paul Harris Fellow level of contributions to the next level they will have the opportunity of being thanked personally by RI President Gary Huang at our March 21st Gala Dinner. 

Each time you make a contribution to The Rotary Foundation (TRF) (not our Club Foundation) your funds are recorded and when the accumulated amount reaches $US1,000 you are recognized by TRF with the Paul Harris Fellow (PHF) recognition pin and certificate, TRF’s way of saying “Thank You”.

In December each member was advised as to where they stand with their accumulated contributions to TRF.  If you need an update please contact Jim Belton.

To ensure your PHF recognition item(s) are received on time please give Sandy Ronson your contribution information by February 20th.

Remember, if the ‘PHF’ request amount is out of the question may we suggest you consider making a US$100 [Cdn $ 114.00] contribution which would qualify you as a ‘sustaining member’.

With your contribution you may direct a portion of your gift to the Annual Programs Fund, which will be used for worldwide projects, and/or to the PolioPlus campaign.

One of the greatest honors we could bestow on President Gary Huang for his visit would be the opportunity to “Thank” 100 Paul Harris Fellows. Will you help us to Light Up Rotary?

 

 
 

To celebrate 100 years of service to the London community, Rotary clubs in London are donating $100,000 to install a 14-foot illuminated clock in the tower at Covent Garden Market.  

Highly visible to patrons of Budweiser Gardens and the Market, the clock will enhance the area known as Rotary Square that is home to the Rotary Skating Rink and numerous community events.

Construction will begin in late fall with the official grand opening in March 2015. The same clock builder installed the clock in the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in Ottawa – The Verdin Company.  

The clock will be a spectacular enhancement to the existing Market structure and beautify the area while raising the profile of Rotary Square.
