Believe it or not but my year as Niles Rotary President is half over. It seems like just yesterday I was attending PETS (President Elect Training Seminar). The last couple of months have been a little challenging for me getting our DDF Grants into the District for approval. My goal in this article is to explain a little of the process to those of you who are not recent Past Presidents or who unfamiliar with the Grant process.

When the Club’s President Elect is attending PETS in March, he or she is given the total amount of DDF (District Designated Funds) that his or her club will be eligible to receive for the upcoming year.

You have probably heard these funds and the term DDF spoken from the podium by me and by Past Presidents. The DDF funds to be received by each club are a direct percentage of the total amount of monies that have been donated by club members to the  Rotary International Foundation. So, when you donate your double sustainer for the year or any other donation to Rotary International, unless specifically designated for the Polio Plus or End Polio Now campaign, a portion of those monies comes back to the club in the form of DDF. Rotary International calculates the total DDF that each District will be eligible for, and in turn the District calculates how much DDF each club in then is eligible for.



Be one of first to get your tickets and buy your ticket before the end of 2014.     

You can buy your ticket online at Check our website for our sponsor information, beneficiaries, make a donation and check out those prizes!!Image

"This is a 14 minute YouTube film by Brian Rocha from Goleta California; it is one of the best overviews of Rotary service and projects you can see. The passion and excitement of Rotary come through nicely. It is well worth 14 minutes of your time to watch this."

Intense summer program gives Israeli and Palestinian teens new perspectives
Students from Israel and Palestine sat together at a local art studio in Encinitas, California, USA, one day last summer, drawing portraits of one another and learning how to live in peace. Kelly Mellos, an organizer of the project from the Rotary Club of Encinitas Coastal, says that drawing someone who is sitting so close helps break down social barriers between the young people. "They see how many similarities there are between them," she says. "And they begin to understand we are all just people. There is a respect and trust that builds." The students were participating in a program run by...
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...
President-elect urges Rotary members to ‘Be a Gift to the World’
Using their talents, expertise, and leadership, Rotary members worldwide are asked to be gifts to the world this upcoming 2015-16 Rotary year. Rotary International President-elect K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran called Sunday's address to incoming district governors the "most significant moment of my life." "All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift: one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become -- and Be a Gift to the World," said Ravindran, revealing his presidential theme at the annual five-day training meeting...
Man in iron lung discovers Rotary
One might think a man living with polio in an iron lung would know about Rotary. But it wasn't until Paul Alexander had a business meeting with a member in Duncanville, Texas, earlier this year that he learned Rotary fights to eradicate the very disease that left him almost completely paralyzed. "I was completely blown away by the idea. For all these years, I didn't know the work they were doing," says Alexander, a practicing attorney in Dallas. "It's such a perfect fit for me." Alexander contracted polio during a major U.S. outbreak of the disease in the late 1950s when he was six years old...
Alumni recognized for expanding mental health services and supporting Rotary’s work
Dr. Geetha Jayaram has dedicated her life to helping people in her native India and the United States overcome the torment of severe depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, and other mental illnesses. Jayaram is a psychiatrist and associate professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. Her work expanding access to mental health services is much needed. Depression affects at least 350 million people and is the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. "In India, there is no mental...
