Winter is coming to Ohio, and that of course means it's time to play golf!
 
The 18th Annual Polar Bear Golf Outing will be on February 7th at Safari Golf Club.
 
Check-in at 8am; Shotgun Start at 9am
9 Hole Scramble
(Both front 9 and back 9 will be open for speedier play)
Your $80 registration fee includes:
  • Golf & cart fee
  • Light breakfast and lunch
  • Chance to win great raffle prizes, including Taylor Made Irons
Snow, sleet, wind or sun. . . golfing fun, no matter what!
And you’ll earn the right to say “I golfed in February in Ohio!”
 
 
We're also offering sponsorship opportunities, ranging from a very reasonable $100. A very special sponsorship, available only to Rotarians, can help with both the Polar Bear Open and the great new Blarney Bash.  Visit this website for more details (and click under "Files" at the left of the page) or ask me.
 

 
 
Join your fellow Rotarians, Thursday December 4th, to celebrate the season at our annual Holiday Party. We will have fun at The Club at Corazon. The theme and attire is “holiday casual.” The party begins at 7pm and ends at 10pm. Price is $30 per person, which includes 2 drinks (beer or wine) and heavy appetizers. The club will bill you. A full cash bar will be available as well.
 
The club is helping to subsidize attendance, so you'll get more than holiday rubber chicken. Expect to indulge in some Flatbread Pizzas, Beef Wellington, Crab Cakes, Sea Scallops Wrapped in Bacon, Sesame Chicken, and more. We have hired the renown local musician Tracy Carter to provide the music, and an artist to capture Rotarians and their guests having fun. Come early and stay late. Enjoy food, fellowship, and maybe a colorful (or sparkly) sweater or two.
 

 
 
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!
 

 
 
We all joined our great Rotary Club for different reasons. I get that! One constant in my 15 years as a Member is the value of coming to a Friday Meeting. I always feel so engaged when I leave a meeting being WOW’d by an awesome speaker, reconnecting with an individual that I haven’t spoken to in a while, being inspired by the great things we do in our community, or getting a good spirited laugh. I leave at 8:30am ready to tackle my day with a sense of pride, excitement, and energy. When was the last you spent time in thought about the value that a Friday Meeting has on you? I challenge each of you to spend a few minutes thinking about this.

I promise a smile will cross your face.

I look forward to catching up with YOU at a Friday Meeting. I am the guy wearing a suit and tie.

Due to moves or changes in work or family situations, we regret to report that three Rotarians have tendered their resignations from our club. Thanks very much to Ken Boltz, Ryan Hoefling, and Sinan Yaykin for their many contributions to Rotary.  Bon voyage, and all best for a blessed future!
 

 
 
Thanks to everyone who helped put Rotary stickers inside our Project Dictionaries, with a special thanks to the Dublin Schools staff who also helped.  Many of the books have been delivered already.  Every third grader in Dublin City Schools will get one. As this lovely photograph from Cap Clegg shows, Lila is one of the many students who love their new dictionaries!
 

 
 
Thanks, too, to everyone who donated books so that Mike Close could enhance the library at the Veterans Apartment downtown. Mike reports that the veterans now have the books they need, with much more variety and interest than before.  Great work, everyone!
 
 

 
 
District 6690 District Governor Randy Davies visited Dublin A.M. to bestow an award from Rotary International, based on our 2013-14 giving to the Polio Plus Fund. We are one of the very few clubs who contributed more than $1,500 to the fund.  Click here to see the presentation.  Thanks, Randy, and great job, Dublin A.M!
 
 

 
 
We've recently heard from Jeff Oberlander, a brewmaster from Anheuser-Busch. Travis was very entertaining about the types of beer, how they are made, and what happens at the A-B plant here in Columbus.  No doubt the nice samples he brought helped his presentation to go down smoothly as a fine stout. Click here to see what he had to say.'
 
 
We also heard from our own Dave Williamson, who talked about the recent honor flight. A more detailed write-up, with thanks to the vets and our pilots, will soon appear on the Honor Flight page of our website. For now, click here to see Dave's presentation--as always, passionate and caring.

Rotary Day at the United Nations highlights the strength of partnerships
To strengthen their 69-year-old partnership, leaders from Rotary and the United Nations met this month in New York City for Rotary Day at the United Nations. The two organizations began working together with the aim of maintaining peace after World War II. Today, the relationship has evolved to include humanitarian work in areas like gender equality, child and maternal health, and disease treatment and prevention. While the UN's Millennium Development Goals are set to expire in 2015, its leaders are preparing for an even more ambitious humanitarian agenda of eradicating extreme poverty by...
A major breakthrough against polio
Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) are approaching a significant milestone: the eradication of type 3 wild poliovirus. The last case of polio caused by the type 3 virus was reported in Yobe, Nigeria, on 10 November 2012. "We may have eradicated a second of three; that's a major milestone," said Dr. Stephen Cochi, a senior adviser at the Center for Global Health at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, speaking to the BBC. Rotary has played an important role in bringing type 3 polio close to extinction. PolioPlus grants have provided key...
Rotary’s World Polio Day live-streamed event is a huge success
More than 23,000 viewers in 24 countries tuned in to Rotary's World Polio Day event, streamed live on 24 October. Health officials including James Alexander, senior medical epidemiologist for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gave an update on the polio eradication campaign and praised Rotary's achievements to date. Rotary has contributed more than $1.2 billion to polio eradication since 1979. For World Polio Day, Rotary released $44.7 million in grants to fight the disease in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. In addition to the update, the event included entertainment by...
Malala Yousafzai wins the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize
Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager shot in the head for speaking out against the Taliban in support of girls' education, has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2014. Yousafzai, whose father is a Rotarian, shares the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, a native of India who has worked to combat the exploitation of children for financial gain, according to an announcement in October from the Norwegian Nobel Committee. In announcing the award, the committee praised Yousafzai for demonstrating that "children and young people, too, can contribute to improving their own situations." It noted...
Rotary’s world headquarters hosts Evanston Rotary Day
Business owners and community leaders in Evanston, Illinois, USA, joined Rotary staff and family members in a celebration of the organization's cultural diversity at an open-house Rotary Day event at Rotary's world headquarters on 25 October. Rotary President Gary C.K. Huang is urging clubs and districts to hold these informal events to showcase Rotary's good work. The open house was held immediately after Evanston's Day of Caring, during which volunteers planted trees, fixed up buildings, performed yard work, painted, and participated in other community projects throughout the city.
