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 releases $34.8 million for polio immunization activities worldwide
Rotary International released an additional $34.8 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds, whose release was announced 20 January, will be used by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for polio immunization and surveillance activities in the 10 countries, as well as to provide technical assistance in several other countries in Africa. The grants include $8.1 million for Nigeria to support its final push to eradicate the disease. Nigeria...
Future leaders ready to become gifts to the world
Incoming district governors said they'll leave this year's International Assembly with a deeper understanding of Rotary's top priorities, including eradicating polio, enhancing Rotary's brand, strengthening the Rotary Foundation, and building a strong and more diverse membership. For Mohamed Adel Hafez, governor-elect of District 2451 (Egypt), the assembly's varied workshops were invaluable. The workshops offered practical information and skills to help district governors-elect perform their duties. "I can speak to my clubs with more authority and knowledge about what needs to be done in the...
Promoting membership with new ideas, even some that challenge tradition
Strengthening Rotary's membership is not just important for incoming district governors, it's critical. That's the message they received from several key speakers at their training event, the 2015 International Assembly in San Diego. For membership to grow, leaders must be willing, for example, to ease stringent club meeting protocols and make other efforts to accommodate a younger, digitally oriented demographic. Seventy percent of Rotary members are 50 years or older, while half of the world's population is under 30, according to Rotary leaders. The contrast shouldn't be something to fear,...
Despite global success for Rotary’s brand, still work to do in the community
On a global scale Rotary's brand is strong, said Rotary leaders speaking at the International Assembly on Monday in San Diego. From governments to worldwide NGOs to large corporations, Rotary is trusted to create positive change around the world. But Rotary's image needs strengthening in local communities, said RI Director-elect Jennifer E. Jones. "We are the greatest story never told," Jones said. "Quite simply, strengthening our brand is essential to Rotary's future." "For so long we did our good work quietly and not for recognition," added Jones, a member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-...
