Are you upset at what happened to Cecil the Lion, Zeren asked? African elephants are in mortal danger; 35,000 are killed for their ivory every year. That's one elephant slaughtered every 15 minutes - and there are no signs of the massacre slowing down.
After Uno’s, we made our way to Fenway and District 7930 was honored on the scoreboard during an on-field salute!
The highlight (for me) was not that the Sox won 4-1 against the AL leading, Kansas City Royals, but after each home inning, all of us held up beautiful signs promoting Rotary District 7930 on one side and our Cebu Rotaplast mission on the other! I would like to thank Dave Gardner for donating the signs. I would also like to thank:Tom Hankard, Amy Luckiewicz, Donna-Lee Rubin, Paul Solano, Bob Wood and many others, who made this a special night for Rotary District 7930!
To be effective, a Rotary club needs members. Your club’s ability to serve the community, support The Rotary Foundation, and develop leaders capable of serving Rotary beyond the club level is directly related to the size and strength of its membership base. Developing your club’s membership requires identifying and attracting potential members as well as retaining current members. New members bring fresh ideas and new energy to a club. Current members are crucial to continuing your club’s good works.
Attending the October 1st Membership Forum will provide the resources, new ideas and an opportunity to recharge your member recruitment and retention batteries!
Please register ASAP and tell all other active members of this fantastic fellowship event.
Attention Professional and Recreational Photographers
The club's goal was to provide a fun and enjoyable experience for the kids and Rotary did just that. We had two air inflated recreational items, a bouncy house and an air slide. The club rented two ponies and offered rides to all!
Of course we also offered the standard barbeque items including hot dogs and hamburgers and chips and cookies, cotton candy as well as ice cream donated by Treadwell's ice cream.
If you are a webmaster, a story editor, a public relations chair or any other committee chair you should consider submitting stories that showcase your club or event and possibly interest Rotarians from around the district to get involved. You can submit stories via the new portal here!
If you want some guidelines on creating stories, please read more!
Registration begins at 4:00 pm, the opening plenary will be at 4:30 pm with a presentation from DG David Manzi and others with a focus on member recruitment and member retention. The plenary will be followed by two breakout sessions.
Breakout session # 1 will be entitled “Young Professionals: how to attract, engage and retain.” Breakout session # 2 will be entitled “Membership Initiatives”. The breakout sessions will be followed by a cocktail reception and dinner in the Garden Atrium of the hotel.
This event is for all Rotarians, but particularly for Presidents, Presidents-elect and membership chairs. Remember, membership is ALL of our responsibility!

WINCHESTER KICKS OFF YEAR WITH 2 SERVICE PROJECTS
Winchester Rotarians also reached out to help Youth Villages stuff backpacks filled with back to school supplies. Youth Villages Massachusetts headquarters is based in Woburn and has various residential treatment programs that serve boys and girls with serious to severe emotional and behavioral problems combined with other needs. One of their residential facilities is the Germaine Lawrence School in Arlington. Winchester Rotary has had an affiliation with Germaine Lawrence for many years, thanks to the efforts of Past President Sydelle Pittas who established the connection during her presidential year. Rotarian Caren Connelly chairs Winchester's service efforts with Germaine Lawrence and helped organized club members Donna Denio, Paul Gleason, Mary Lou Hardy, Judy Katz, Laurie Russell, and Marnee Walsh to help with this service project. The club also provided Rotary imprinted "Service Above Self" pencils to include with the back to school supplies in every pack. Winchester Rotary will be participating in a variety of different service projects throughout the Rotary year to help support Germaine Lawrence through the Youth Villages organization.
