Welcome To District 7020
Building Our Future With Vision
District Governor Paul Brown & RI President Gary C.K. Huang
 

Fellow Rotarians, Rotaractors and Family of Rotary

 

Welcome to the first message from the Governor’s desk for the Rotary year, 2014 -15

 

As we begin the new year, let me congratulate and thank IPDG and his fantastic Team along with you, our special Clubs, for the exceptional work done over the past year. We certainly endeavor to “Engage Rotary...Change Lives” during the last year, and I would say, that we as a District, accomplished this goal.

 

Now we enter the new year with a different but equally exciting theme, “Light up Rotary”. This theme is so all encompassing, it allows us to extend our imagination to think of the different ways we can Light up Rotary” in the areas of strengthening our Clubs, giving Humanitarian Service, and enhancing our Public Image.

 

I look forward to an exciting year of service and wait, with eager anticipation, to witness the flow of ideas coming from all our Clubs.

 

I know there are challenges with communication across the District but we are addressing that problem with District and Club website development, use of social media in all our clubs, and other tools such as Skype and Webinars.

 

Rotary International is making the effort to address that problem too and I do hope we all embrace Rotary Club Central as a tool to make communication between our members even more transparent and effective.

 

Our Installation Ceremony will be held in Kingston, Jamaica on July 12, 2014, and almost immediately after, Kay and I will start our round of Official Visits commencing with visits to Cayman Islands and the Turks and Caicos Islands by the end of July. We look forward to sharing fellowship, expanding our friendship with the Rotarians from these areas. At the same time, we wish to hear your plans and in what ways we can be of assistance to you so that you can achieve your goals effectively.

 

So let us go forward and “Light up Rotary” in 2014 -15!

Polio vaccinators make significant headway in Nigeria
Nigeria is closer than ever to eradicating polio, riding a successful effort to reach children in seven northern states at highest risk for the disease. "Rotarians have [gone] into remote areas of the country by car, canoe, motorbike, and even on foot to ensure every child gets the vaccine," says Rotary's Nigeria PolioPlus Committee Chair Tunji Funsho. In Katsina state, members of the Nigeria PolioPlus Committee (NPPC) recently met with leaders of two communities notoriously opposed to immunization, mainly on religious grounds and in protest of the lack of basic health care. They persuaded...
Rotary Scholar’s unique ability in bringing clubs together
In a municipal hospital in Cubatão, Brazil, a new mammography machine funded by a Rotary global grant provides breast cancer screening to women who previously had to wait for weeks before they could get in for a checkup with a doctor. A Rotary global grant also funded training for medical staff and cancer awareness education for people in the community. Isis Mejias Carpio of Houston, studying at the University of São Paulo on a Rotary scholarship, played an instrumental role in bringing together Rotary clubs in two countries to make the grant possible. Members of the Rotary Club of Cubatão,...
Rick Burns’ thoughtful approach to Iraq and Afghanistan
Humanitarian Rick Burns, a retired civil affairs officer in the U.S. Army, has been helping people in the war-torn countries of Afghanistan and Iraq since 2003. He's seen a lot of good, but he's also seen what happens when good intentions go awry. Take the fertile grounds of Arghandab River Valley in Afghanistan, for example. Burns recalls an initiative to help fruit exporters become profitable again after the war. Cold storage facilities were built, but because no one considered the country's spotty electricity, the facilities ended up being too expensive to maintain. "We really want to make...
Pedaling coast-to-coast for a purpose
Keith Harris is pedaling for a purpose. At the tender age of 50, he's set out on an eight-week, 4,400-mile bike ride across the U.S. to raise $25,000 for The Rotary Foundation. He's also hoping to raise an additional $2,500 for Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport, Massachusetts, where a few years ago he was treated for a life-threatening heart condition. "The trip is sort of my midlife crisis," he admits but it's not the first time he's pedaled across the country. He made the trek about 20 years ago, before he married his wife, Christina. Harris has been a Rotary member for 18 years. He's...
Blown away by the realities of human trafficking
At the age of 17, Jennifer was sleeping on the streets of Atlanta. She'd felt abandoned most of her life, unprotected from her brothers and her mother's boyfriends, who physically and sexually abused her since she was five. And now, kicked out of her house, Jennifer - whose last name is withheld for privacy - was alone and vulnerable. She was soon lured into sex trafficking and was unable to escape for two years. Then she found Covenant House. "Studies have shown that if a young person ends up on the street, within 48 hours someone is going to approach them with the intention of exploiting...
