District 7210 News & Updates
The Rotary Foundation and Thanksgiving
I have always found it very appropriate that during November we celebrate both The Rotary Foundation and our American Thanksgiving, and it is particularly noteworthy this Rotary year, as we are celebrating The Rotary Foundation's 100th Anniversary. Most of us have so much to be thankful for; good health, fine education, comparative prosperity and relative peace and harmony in our local vicinity, yet I'm sure that we are all acutely aware that there are many in our world community for whom this is not so. This is where our Foundation steps forward to serve humanity ... click here for full newsletter
As we sign up now for Rotary UN Day in November, we’re reminded of Rotary’s partnership with the United Nations and our shared values of international understanding and world peace. What better time to get your club involved with the Rotary Youth Exchange Program to promote these values in your club and community?
Deadlines are fast approaching for the 2017-2018 Outbound Program that allows you to sponsor a young ambassador from your community for a year abroad. District interviews take place in the next few weeks, so don’t delay. Click here to visit the District Youth Exchange website, and contact Outbound Director Betty Djerf at email@example.com for further information.
Inbound Director Nan Greenwood is seeking club commitments to sponsor an Inbound Student for the 2017-2018 academic year. International student applications will start arriving soon so now’s the time to plan. And remember, host families need not be Rotarians. Contact Nan at firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain further information, confirm your interest, and arrange a club presentation.
Let’s support the efforts of RI and the UN to promote mutual understanding and world peace through youth!
Our recent Young Professional Summit at Bear Mountain included Bill Fishman, White Plains Rotary Club, who introduced Rotary Means Business (RMB) which is a Fellowship of Rotary International that encourages Rotarians to support the success of their fellow Rotarians by doing business with them. Rotary District 7210 has joined RMB as a local group and will be led by Michael Hedrick of the Southern Ulster Rotary Club, along with Bill Flash (Membership Program Director) and DG Louis Turpin.
Stay tuned for this exciting opportunity for District 7210 members!
The Rotary International convention in Atlanta looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. They expect 40,000 Rotarians to attend. That's 40,000 people from around the world that are committed to helping make the world a better place. How cool!
We have some rooms left in our room block; some at The Omni which is right on the convention site for $237 per night. Some at The Marriott Marquis for $205 per night. The Marriott is 7/10 of a mile from the convention site. If you would like to reserve one of the rooms please email me at email@example.com or call me at 845-798-0783. District 7210 is going to be well represented and it's going to be enriching and a lot of fun. Don't delay-we only have a few rooms and they are going fast.
Plans are still in the works for a District 7210 gathering and, as we get closer to the date we will explore whether there are good travel options that can shared. If you have any ideas, thoughts or questions, please let me know. We are looking forward to the International Convention and to the opportunity to meet Rotarians from around the world and to connect with others from our district.
As always, thanks for all you do. Please let me know if you have any questions.
