Date of Dublin Robotics Tournament: Saturday January 10, 2015
From: 7:00 am to 5:30 pm
Location: Dublin Jerome High School
Tournament Theme: World Class Learning Unleashed
 
Cindy Bryden of Dublin Robotic Boosters still needs three judges for team work and is also seeking extra Robot and Project judges in case someone gets sick. The concession stand is always a great way to help for a couple of hours and no special training is required.  Please review available positions below.
 
If you have questions, please contact Cindy Bryden at 614-793-9568 to discuss a volunteer position.
Certain jobs are limited to persons over 18 years of age and FLL has a background check for all volunteers over the age of 17. It is very simple and takes about 15 minutes. To sign up for the Dublin Ohio District Tournament, pick the volunteer positions you are interested in and do the background check.
 
 
After you pass the background check, for some positions (such as concession) you are done. For those that require training, there is an online training video and a quiz that takes about an hour.
Please consider volunteering. If you want a detailed description of the different volunteer tasks, please check the email I’ll be sending or click on the document under the “Download Rotary Forms” link (below and to the right on the front page of the website).
 
Thanks!

Once again, we're working with Dublin Counseling Center and the Salvation Army to provide gifts for those who might not otherwise have a Christmas. We've upped the number of people we are going to support:  we'll support six families with the Salvation Army and three with the Counseling Center. That's a huge, huge number of people we'll helping this year. Save some change, for we'll need lots of money to help. We'll pass the hat at the Holiday Party on December 4th and then again on the following Friday meeting, December 12th. Shoppers will be spending on Saturday, and we'll be delivering the gifts on Monday, so we'll be on the fast track once again to get this done and create a great holiday for those in great need.  Please put these dates on your calendars. if you'd like to help with shopping, please let me know!
 
A special thanks are due to Raj Hora, who donated 10% of the proceeds from our recent Tuesdays at Tutto to the effort. We have kicked off with $100 thanks to their generosity. Thanks, too, to all the Rotarians who turned out to support the effort!
 
 

 
 
Shifts are still available for Ringing the Bell at the Salvation Army Red Kettle. We are at three locations on December 6 and 20 (December 13 is being covered by our fine young Interact members):  Kroger Bridge St, Kroger Perimeter, and Anderson's.  Come on out for a two hour shift, or split one with a Rotary buddy:  family, friends, cute kids, and friendly dogs welcome. Sign up right from our webpage (see the upper right of the page, under Events) or by communicating with the redoubtable Bruce Andrews.  Thanks for helping!
 

 
 
The holiday season wouldn't be complete without tips on how to enhance our bell ringing.  I've been viewing films from last year's bell ringing, and I noticed a problem area and a way we can up our game to continue to reign as the Number 1 bell ringing group.  Watch this video and remember what to do when you hit the red kettles this holiday season. 
 
 
 

 
 
On December 4th, we had a very joyous Holiday Party at Corazon. Renowned local musician Tracy Carter provided all our favorite holiday music, while an artist captured Rotarians and their guests having fun. It was a fun night of fellowship and excellent food.
 
 
 
 
 
Here are some of the artist's drawings to enjoy:
 
 
 

 
 
The Dictionaries have been distributed to all the third graders in Dublin City Schools. Each year, we choose one of the elementary schools to present them in person from Rotary. This year, we presented at Riverside. Project Dictionary helps prepare kids for the 3rd Grade reading Test; they all must pass this test, or risk being held back from 4th grade. We've presented dictionaries since 2007. We've given over 9,000 children their own books! The first group of students we gave them to are now in 10th grade. Thanks to all of you for your support of our literacy projects and for making a huge difference in the lives of Dublin's young minds.
 
 

 
 
Maureen Conley gave our club a dynamic presentation on a difficult and yet important topic: the need for court-appointed advocates for children who are abused, neglected, or in foster homes. They need more help than they can usually get from the foster care system. What they most need is a volunteer adult who will work with them until their case is resolved. Only about 23% of them have this sort of help in Franklin County. This short video provides a idea of who CASA volunteers help:
In her presentation, Maureen discussed the specifics of being a CASA volunteer.  You can watch her presentation here.

Rotary AIDS day event turns spotlight on world’s deadliest infectious disease
The recent Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the worst ever, has claimed several thousand lives and generated worldwide concern. But its impact pales in comparison to that of AIDS, which, despite advances in treatment, still kills more than a million people a year, the majority of them in Africa. "Even with the Ebola outbreak at its worst expected levels, it's never going to reach what we've seen with the HIV/AIDS epidemic," said Dr. Timothy B. Erickson, director of the Center for Global Health at the University of Illinois at Chicago, speaking at Rotary's World AIDS Day event in Evanston on 1...
Statement by Rotary International on the deadly school attack in Pakistan
Rotary International condemns the horrific attack that killed more than 130 schoolchildren and wounded over 100 of their classmates in Peshawar, Pakistan. We believe that children everywhere have the basic right to receive an education in an environment unthreatened by violence or fear. Rotary extends our heartfelt sympathy to all of the families in Pakistan, including those of seven Rotary members, who have lost children as a result of this unfathomable tragedy. We stand with them in mourning their loss. Gary C.K. Huang, PresidentRotary International
Indoor air pollution linked to millions of deaths
After decades dreaming about the Himalayas, Rotary member George Basch went on his first trek through the mountains in 2001, when he was 64. A member of the Rotary Club of Taos-Melagro in New Mexico, USA, Basch found that the experience was even more than he had hoped. "My expectations were high, and dramatically exceeded," he remembers. But a less-than-pleasant aspect of the experience was the indoor smoke pollution he encountered in the guest houses and private homes he visited. Many families in the Himalayas use rudimentary cookstoves or, in some cases, an open fire pit inside the home to...
Rotary staff members bond over Miles to End Polio bike ride
For six staff members from Rotary headquarters in Evanston, the fight to eradicate polio has become personal. Together, they biked the physically grueling 104-mile (167-kilometer) Tour de Tucson in Arizona, USA, collectively raising more than $20,000 for polio eradication while putting their bodies and minds through a feat of endurance. For the tightknit group, the experience was about more than just raising money and crossing the finish line. It was about learning about each other and what Rotary members are doing to rid the world of this crippling disease. They advocated together, trained...
How a simple school project in India became a global grant
Two years ago, U.S. Rotary members in Maine set out to improve the education system in Bikaner, Rajasthan, an Indian city near the border of Pakistan. The Rotary Club of Kennebunk Portside chose Bikaner because club member Rohit Mehta was originally from the area and had connections there. Mehta put the club in contact with Rotarians in India to provide desks for four government-run schools. But when community leaders returned with a request for more desks, the Maine Rotarians decided they had to think bigger. The Rotary Foundation had rolled out its new grant model, which required that the...
