Rotary University's next class is basic operations and new member orientation, scheduled for Saturday, February 28, 2015
Retaining Members:  Imagine if you had attended PETS training when you first became a Rotarian.  Well, this is your chance to send your Rotarians to training that far exceeds PETS training when all of the Rotary U courses are combined.  This training gives your members an insight into Rotary as they launch or further their Rotary career.  The more they know, the more Rotarians are ENGAGED.
The 2015 Rotary International Convention is in Sao Paulo, Brazil June 6-9, 2015.  I  recommend that you start planning now.  I am including Visa application information and forms, RI Convention Hotel information and the 2015 RI Convention registration information forms.  Sao Paulo is going all out to make this an exciting event and on Sunday June 7, 2015 the city will with Rotary International have the annual Carnival Parade and Rotarians will get to participate. There are 134 Carnival Clubs who will be in the parade and the parade rivals the one in Rio.  Remember Sao Paulo is the largest city in the Americas.
The Houston RI District is negotiating for another “Cowboy Dinner Cruise” and I hope to have more details soon.
See you in Sao Paulo.

Thursday, October 9, members of The Addison Rotary Club, presented to Ronald McDonald House of Dallas (RMHD) a check in the amount of $200,000—the proceeds from the club’s annual golf outing held yearly since 1990. Now in its 24th year, the Addison Rotary Open (ARO) took place at Gleneagles Country Club on September 8, 2014; approximately 225 golfers made the event a competitive and fun day. Since 2010, The Addison Rotary Club and its foundation, the Addison Rotary Foundation, has raised more than $1 million for the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas and is the charity’s second largest annual fundraiser. 2014 ARO Chair, Lance Pendley says, “The most amazing part of this story is that The Addison Rotary is a relatively small club with about 45 members which means that each member has raised approximately $22,000 over the past 5 years.” Since the operational cost of a night’s stay at RMHD is $125, it is estimated that the ARO has raised funds to pay for over 8,000 nights at the House with the $1 million raised.

Project: A Taste for Dallas Sports
In 2006, A Taste for Dallas Sports was formed to celebrate Dallas-Fort Worth sports teams and raise funds and awareness for two service projects. The Rotary Club of Dallas DreamTeam Program's purpose is to mentor and provide scholarships to DISD high school students. To accomplish this goal students are taught to recognize, develop and utilize their leadership, scholarship and service capabilities. The future potential fostered in these students will enrich the lives of countless others, leading to stronger and more cohesive communities. The Dreams for Scholars Endowment will allow us to provide scholarships to deserving students.
The Dallas Trinity Rotary Club focuses on A Bridge to Service with projects such as student scholarships, classroom technological equipment, student school supplies, school supplies, school uniforms, family and child support programs such as CASA and The Well Community, to name just a few.

Once a month, Park Cities hosts a networking happy hour at different venues around Dallas and this month we were at the Inwood Theatre Bar.  As we were all mingling, a 35 year old patron asked several of us what we were doing and we told him we were with Park Cities Rotary and that we were having a networking happy hour.  He got a very confused look on his face and said isn’t Rotary a bunch of guys from the 1930’s and 1940’s and not relevant for him.  Several of us talked to him and then another guy who was at the bar and talked about different projects that Rotary had done from Kenya to Nicaragua to Childs Play at Bachman Lake to the 4th of July Parade.  He came across very intrigued and might actually show up to our meeting on Friday.  He was also very impressed by a potential new member of Park Cities who was at the happy hour and was talking about his time spent in Pakistan and Afghanistan giving the polio vaccine to people
I am not sure the best way to circumvent the perception that people have of Rotary other than showing them where it is different.

As Rotarians you know about fundraisers.  There are so many types.  Golf tournaments and flag programs are great examples of tried and true methods.  At the last District Roundtable, however, we all saw something completely new.
It's an animatronic character that sings and dances and teaches ethics to children.
