Rotary Scholar’s unique ability in bringing clubs together
In a municipal hospital in Cubatão, Brazil, a new mammography machine funded by a Rotary global grant provides breast cancer screening to women who previously had to wait for weeks before they could get in for a checkup with a doctor. A Rotary global grant also funded training for medical staff and cancer awareness education for people in the community. Isis Mejias Carpio of Houston, studying at the University of São Paulo on a Rotary scholarship, played an instrumental role in bringing together Rotary clubs in two countries to make the grant possible. Members of the Rotary Club of Cubatão,...
Rick Burns’ thoughtful approach to Iraq and Afghanistan
Humanitarian Rick Burns, a retired civil affairs officer in the U.S. Army, has been helping people in the war-torn countries of Afghanistan and Iraq since 2003. He's seen a lot of good, but he's also seen what happens when good intentions go awry. Take the fertile grounds of Arghandab River Valley in Afghanistan, for example. Burns recalls an initiative to help fruit exporters become profitable again after the war. Cold storage facilities were built, but because no one considered the country's spotty electricity, the facilities ended up being too expensive to maintain. "We really want to make...
Pedaling coast-to-coast for a purpose
Keith Harris is pedaling for a purpose. At the tender age of 50, he's set out on an eight-week, 4,400-mile bike ride across the U.S. to raise $25,000 for The Rotary Foundation. He's also hoping to raise an additional $2,500 for Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport, Massachusetts, where a few years ago he was treated for a life-threatening heart condition. "The trip is sort of my midlife crisis," he admits but it's not the first time he's pedaled across the country. He made the trek about 20 years ago, before he married his wife, Christina. Harris has been a Rotary member for 18 years. He's...
Blown away by the realities of human trafficking
At the age of 17, Jennifer was sleeping on the streets of Atlanta. She'd felt abandoned most of her life, unprotected from her brothers and her mother's boyfriends, who physically and sexually abused her since she was five. And now, kicked out of her house, Jennifer - whose last name is withheld for privacy - was alone and vulnerable. She was soon lured into sex trafficking and was unable to escape for two years. Then she found Covenant House. "Studies have shown that if a young person ends up on the street, within 48 hours someone is going to approach them with the intention of exploiting...
Drug wars, financial setbacks no match for Mexico clinic
About 300 miles south of Ciudad Juarez, one of Mexico's most dangerous cities, is the small town of Guerrero in central Chihuahua. The community is home to the Guerrero Clinic, which has weathered neighboring drug wars and financial setbacks to treat the poor since 1980. Walter Branson, a member of the Rotary Club of Brazosport, Texas, in the United States, has been involved with the clinic since 1983. Branson says the governor of Chihuahua credits the clinic with providing 60 percent of indigent care in the state. The drug wars in Mexico, which began in 2006, initially scared away U.S....

Assistant District Governor Grant Southwell introduced Brian Thompson, District Governor of 7070.  Brian often says that Rotary is one of the best things that ever happened to him.  Here's a little background on him -- born in Toronto and grew up in Don Mills. He received his Bachelor of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Toronto and became a Professional Engineer, working in the nuclear industry for Ontario Hydro. He was also a Commercial Pilot, working part-time as a flying instructor at Toronto Airways in Buttonville, Ontario.  Most of Brian's nuclear career was in Public Relations, based at Pickering. He was seconded for two years to serve the Canadian Nuclear Association in Ottawa as Director of Communications, working in Government and Media Relations, and finished his career with Ontario Power Generation at Darlington. For the past two decades he has also operated a video production company, primarily producing industrial and commercial movies for education, training and marketing. During more than three decades in Rotary, Brian has served in every avenue of service at the club level. He was one of the first in his club to visit Consuelo in the Dominican Republic to investigate opportunities to do “hands on” work. At the District level, Brian has served on the Foundation and Public Relations committees; he was District Chair of the Group Reps (now called Assistant District Governors), Chair of Youth Services (New Generations), and led a GSE Team to New Zealand. He is a member of the District Rotary at Work,Membership, and Long Range Planning Committees, and served as an Assistant District Governor for 4 years. In the community, Brian has had several leadership roles volunteering at his church, and has served on committees at local Chambers of Commerce, writing two Chamber policies on nuclear energy in the process. Brian enjoys photography, cinematography, classic movies and entertaining friends. Brian is married to Karen, who has had a varied and active nursing career. She claims she is retired from paid employment, but not retired from life.  She continues to work in the volunteer sector. Some of that work has involved collaboration with the Whitby Sunrise Rotary Club in Consuelo, in water and sanitation.Karen and Brian enjoy travelling, tennis, and relaxing at their chalet in Hidden Valley, Huntsville.  They have two grown children and five grandchildren in whom they delight.
 
Brian shared his first Rotary moment from 1983.  He had been in Rotary for three years and attended the International Convention that happened to be in Toronto, close to home.  During fellowship, Brian and his wife Karen met a couple from Australia and spent an enjoyable time speaking with them.  The next day, during opening remarks in front of 20,000 people the plenary speaker turned out to be the gentleman they had been speaking to the evening before.  Brian recognized the calibre of people that Rotary attracted and that cemented his commitment to Rotary for life.
 
Rotary does great work, locally and internationally, however, the struggle seems to be retaining members.  A firm was hired to research this issue and the message they presented was that Rotary was not communicating very well.  Rotary has leadership that others are looking for.  They have diversity in professions represented, business and community leaders from all walks of life.  If there is a problem, Rotary can solve it.  People are looking for that kind of leader with passion and persistence who see things to the end.  We need to tell others about Rotary.  We are all messengers.  Brian talked about the upcoming District 7070 Conference, October 24th - 26th in Toronto Shaken and Stirred.  There are 1,200,000 Rotarians in the world.  Since 1998 an additional 1,200,000 people have joined Rotary and yet we are still at 1,200,000.  The issue is not attracting members, the issue is keeping members.  That takes us to this year's Rotary International Theme LIGHT UP ROTARY. Many traditional Chinese values are reflected in Rotary: values of service and responsibility, of respect for
family and for others. Perhaps Confucius was the world’s first Rotarian, because even though he died 2,500 years before Rotary was founded, his ideas are very much Rotary ideas. And one of the things he said was:  “It is better to light up a single candle than to sit and curse the darkness”.
 
This one line sums up the way we in Rotary approach the problems of the world. There is so much difficulty. There are so many people who need help. Many people look at this and say, “There is nothing I can do.” So they do nothing and nothing changes. But this is not the Rotary way. The Rotary way is to light a candle. I light one candle, you light one candle and so do 1.2 million other Rotarians. Together we can do so much more than we could ever do alone. Together ,
we can light up the world.  Light Up Rotary is our theme for this year, but it is more than just a theme. It is how we in Rotary see the world and our role in it. We believe that no one should sit alone in the darkness. Instead, we can come together, all 1.2 million of us to Light Up Rotary.  That is our goal.  Brian Thompson left us with that challenge.
 

 
 
The Rotary Club's Annual Fun Golf Tournament (and it was tons of fun!) has a name change -- The Bob Michaud Rotary Classic to honour and exemplify the enthusiasm always shown by our dear friend and late Rotarian, Bob Michaud.  He worked tirelessly for Rotary and the Rotary Club of Belleville.

Very pleased to announce the final update to the Diners and Duffers initiative.  With the final $140 expected to be collected this week, the profit for 2014 is $12,559.  A wonderfully high number of our club members, 81 to be exact, took part in selling books.  Several members sold ten or more.  Special shout outs to John Rawson, who often acted as a distribution center and sold over 50 books and to Wayne Dewe who sold over 70.  Thanks also to Nadine Langlois for keeping us in "the news" through Rotopics and to Treasurer Shannon Neely for looking after our funds.  On behalf of the Diners and Duffers committee members Bruce Flynn, Jamie Trudeau, Dave Albert and myself, our sincere appreciation for your outstanding support.
 

 
 
$1,000 was sent to Rotary International to support the preservation of the Paul Harris House in Illinois, specifically ear-marked for the Canada Room.
 

 
 
 
 
Rotarians, honoured guests, family, friends -- it is truly an honour and a privilege to stand before you today as your new President. I accept the trust you have placed in me and pledge that with the strong, experienced and compete‎nt board that is your leadership team, we will steward the club’s resources well, represent the Rotary mission and values and the 4 way test to the best of our abilities, and make this the service club that people want to get into!! 
It is my particular pleasure to welcome many members of my family here today, as well as some special guests. Starting with my mother, Marie, who in raising a family of 10 children, and now presiding over the Kennedy clan of 22 grand children and 3 great grandchildren with another on the way, coupled with a full career as teacher and educator, knows a thing or two about Service above Self! A special welcome to my Aunt Helen Gaffney and my sisters, Lorrie Lunny, from Etobicoke, Theresa Williams and her husband, Peter from Ottawa,my brother Terry and his wife Ann, from Ottawa and Erinsville, where they are enjoying their retirement lifestyle and John and his wife, Sheila, from Toronto. Unfortunately, my daughter Kelsey who works in Manhattan, is unable to be here today due to work commitments.
 
I also wish to acknowledge past RI President, Wilf Wilkinson who has always been an inspiration to me from the moment of joining Rotary; newly appointed Assistant District Governor to our Club,  Grant Southwell, and my very dear friend Dr. Jinni Demine, also from the Trenton Rotary Club, who has been a tremendous support to me in preparing for this role over the past several months. Thanks to all of you for joining me for this special occasion! And I also wish to recognize our own Assistant District Governor Ken Dickson- best wishes for your year ahead too!
 
At this point, I’d like to introduce the 2014-15 Board and ask them to stand and remain standing until all their names have been called:
Kelly McKinney, Pres. Elect
Vice Pres. and Treasurer, Shannon Neely
Secretary Bill MacKay (new)
Past Pres. Paul VandeGraaf
Directors: Andrew Bandler, Tracy Bray, Chris Finkle, Nadine Langlois, Judy McKnight (new)
Doug Peterson, John Sherratt (new), Birgit Wartenberg
 
I also wish to thank and acknowledge your Committee Chairs, Team Leaders and function overseers- too many to mention individually today, but you will find their names on the inside front cover of the new green roster- so please take a minute  to be familiar with, and know who to go to for information and answers.
 
The Kennedys are a family of gatherings and as many of you know the Red Roof Cottage, and the Kennedy Compound at Calpin Lake, Erinsville, north of Napanee, ‎my home community, is a place where we love to celebrate- any reason is good enough for a get together- the more the merrier. My family and my place there continue to be a tremendous source of support, renewal and inspiration, enabling me to step forward each day and try to make a difference, in my family life, in my work, and in my community.
 
The journey here has been a long one, but as I stand before you today, it all seems very worthwhile!  ‎Over the past year or two there have been dozens of board meetings, 3 days of Rotary leadership institute, several District meetings, district conferences and assemblies, President-Elect training in Oshawa and Evanston Illinois, several club budget committee meetings, a club planning session, an international convention, which by good luck was in Sydney, Australia last month, and numerous discussions with Directors and committee chairs...so yes, the training and the development is all done and if, with all that input, I screw it up, it's not for lack of preparation!
 
I joined Rotary in 2001, just a year after arriving in Belleville to run the local CAS. I had never been involved in a service club, but I thought it might help get me established in my new community, and the CAS was looking to be a bit more engaged in the community at the time. I attended a number of meetings- checked out other service clubs and organizations too, but ultimately was attracted to Rotary as the club that was known in this area for making things happen, for getting things done. I also liked the concept of the 4 way test and the emphasis on fellowship, or social events, while doing good work in the community.
 
I remember after I applied and attended a few meetings, Dr. Joe Demeza met with me to give me an overview and orientation, and before long, I had my red badge. I have never looked back and have done my best to embrace many of the opportunities Rotary has to offer whether at the local, district or international levels, including 5 RI Conventions. and numerous District Conferences.
 
We are all called to be ‎active in service, and I encourage each of you to seek out your own role and way to get involved, and then pursue it with passion and enthusiasm- we rely on that to keep the club vibrant and active in our community. In particular, I encourage you to take advantage of training that is provided-and yes we pay for a lot of it!  It’s a great way to add to your leadership skills and networks; and by knowing more about Rotary, you will find new ideas and will keep our club renewed and on the leading edge of the district.
 
I want to comment a bit on the ‎theme of this new Rotary year. As I mentioned, I had the good fortune last month, with your support, to attend the Rotary International Convention in Sydney AU along with 19,000 others. There we met our new President Gary C.K. Huang, from Taipei, Taiwan, the first ever Chinese President of RI.  We were ‎introduced to his theme- "Light up Rotary", and encouraged to let our Rotary light shine wherever Rotary is involved.
 
And we have lots here in our own club that's worthy of shining a light on, not the least of which are the major fundraisers coming up in the next few days and weeks- our waterfront beverage service, managed by Director Andrew Bandler and President Elect Kelly McKinney and, of course,the outstandingly successful Rotary Loves Kids Golf Day, chaired this year by Kelly McKinney and Greg Knudsen. The funds from these events will enable us to help countless children and families in our community and further afield, impacting positively on their quality of life. Making a difference in lives, in particular for children and vulnerable populations- that's worth shining a light on!
 
RI President Huang set out his 4 priorities for 2014-15:  
1. Eradication of polio- through a $525 Million  5- year plan ending in 2018, focused on the 3 remaining countries of Nigeria, Afghanistan and ‎Pakistan.
 
2. Membership - he wants to grow Rotary to 1.3 Million from our current world level of less than 1.2 where we’ve been stuck for years, a daunting task for sure, but one we need everyone's support for. Invite a friend or colleague for lunch, ask them to join; and help them feel welcome and engaged when they do! Without extending those invitations, we will not grow and we can each make a difference by simply making the effort. I ask each of you to make it a point to invite at least one guest to a lunch this year, and to follow up to explore if they would like to become a member! President Huang also encourages us to talk to our spouse or partners about joining. There’s no reason not to.
 
3. Supporting the Rotary Foundation to enable our projects worldwide to continue. We in our club have an enviable track record of supporting Every Rotarian Every Year...but let me encourage each of you to fulfill that commitment.- right now we are at about 70%.  Also I encourage you to think about a donation to create a Paul Harris fellowship- for yourself or someone dear to you....you don't have to be a longstanding Rotary member to get started...every contribution to RI’s annual fund, Polio Plus, and so on, counts towards a Paul Harris,  and the worldwide mission of Rotary depends on support of all members all over the world.
 
4. Getting the Rotary story out...we, at all levels, need to promote the Rotary brand, tell our stories, educate our communities and show in all media, including social media what a difference we make, what an impact we are having. Rotarian Arie Korteweg and others have done such great work in this regard- but we need additional support in getting our messages out, including local media, social media etc, so if you can assist, please see Arie. And for social media, talk to Laura Brasseur. Here I want to mention the “Rotary.org” website which was updated last year. How many of you here have logged into “My Rotary” within the past month?If you haven’t, please take a few minutes to check it out, set up your member’s access and learn more about RI initiatives, check out the updated logo and brand resources, and read some of the stories of the great work that Rotary is doing around the world.
 
At the District level, next week we will welcome new DG Brian Thompson, of the Whitby Club, as he starts to make the rounds to his 55 clubs. I’ll leave it to him‎ to run through his goals for the year, but they will include promoting the District conference in TO this October as a great chance for fellowship or social events and learning at the District level.
 
Our club is seen as one of the flagship clubs in the district, on a number of measures. We are the 3rd largest club after Cobourg at 144 and Toronto at 186 members and so it should be no surprise we are the 3rd largest contributor to the Rotary Foundation. As such, we should be generating leaders at the District level and providing leadership to initiatives at the local and District levels- so I encourage you to look for those opportunities and get involved to the fullest degree you can..
 
Finally, I want to mention some goals at the local level, right here at the Rotary Club of Belleville- where your donations and volunteer efforts and fundraising initiatives are making such a difference for so many children and families.
 
You approved our club budget a couple of weeks ago‎. With that in place, we will maintain the various local and international grants that are in place and will be able to support many initiatives and at the levels of the previous year. I’ll highlight a few of them here, but as the year goes along, we will report on progress and be accountable to you for how your money is being used.
 
The Rotary Music Festival, chaired by Rotarian John Chisholm, is a vital part of our community.  A unique opportunity, each spring for local students to receive instruction and compete for prizes in front of world class adjudicators, who now are asking to participate in our festival. What a great feature for our club and our community!  And let's try to get more kids from nearby communities to participate so they too get to share in the benefits of this remarkable event!
 
Harold Brennan and his Community Grants Committee, Darrell Smith and his Special Needs Committee- they thoughtfully review and support countless children and individuals with limitations to live a more fulfilled life and in doing so they work in close partnership with many groups and organizations in our community.
 
Every November we give CAS and Quinte Children’s Foundation a cheque for 10% of the proceeds of Rotary Loves Kids golf event ...that financial support goes directly to bursaries promoting post secondary education for kids who never thought they’d even finish high school. We know education helps break the cycle of abuse and neglect and RLK is changing life opportunities for dozens of local students as they open doors and become engaged and positive contributors to society instead of ending up as lifelong consumers of services.
 
Our own Dr. Ruth has been such a committed Rotarian on our behalf travelling to Africa every year to volunteer in a clinic and check on the progress of our projects. Through a Global grant, we are shortly to complete the renovations for 6 classrooms at the Matangwe  Primary School, a kindergarten to Grade 8 school in Western Kenya. The school was built at the start of this century to house 100 students but it now serves 500 students, 97 of whom are AIDS orphans. All the students receive free uniforms and a hot meal at lunchtime, for many their only meal of the day. Ruth’s work there is supported by Caring Partners Global, founded by Stephen and Sylvia Scott, a couple who lived in the area and now live in Kitchener/Waterloo.
 
I also want to highlight a couple of new initiatives I hope to move forward this year through your committees. The District has been encouraging us to do more on an interclub level to help raise awareness of Rotary across communities, and to support each others efforts. With that in mind, we have a number of ideas that the 3 closest local clubs- Trenton, Quinte Sunrise and ourselves are exploring…with other nearby clubs also showing interest.
 
First is a spelling bee…Past Pres. Paul mentioned this a few weeks ago as an idea that Rotarian Bob Graham had suggested last year… But Trenton is well ahead of us with much planning already done over the past year, led by Dr Jinni Demine. Now, with the leadership of our Literacy Chair Sharon McConnell, we have recruited members to an inter club planning committee who will be developing the concept and hopefully with the support of local schools, it may come to fruition in early 2015. This could one day have the far reaching impact of the music festival and be a great boost to our profile in the community while supporting an important literacy goal.
 
Another new development is a sweat equity project under the leadership of Brenda Snider and her committee’s banner of Strengthening Community. Both Belleville and Trenton Rotary Clubs have committed funds in support of a partnership with Habitat for Humanity to promote Rotary Build Days in both communities with Rotary volunteers rolling up their sleeves and swinging a hammer or a pushing a paintbrush to help build an affordable home for families who otherwise could never afford to own one. I would like to see at least 2 Rotary Days in Trenton this fall and 2 in Belleville next spring, at Habitat build sites, offering all Rotarians and their families a chance to contribute directly to improving living conditions for children and for families in our community.
 
We are also encouraged to make plans for a Rotary Day in our community, on World Understanding and Peace day in February commemorating the founding of Rotary. Here in Belleville, we will add celebrations for our 95 years of history, marked as it is, by so many contributions to our city and its people, so many projects and initiatives. And with our own Centennial only 5 years away, its not too early to start thinking about how we want to mark our hundredth birthday in 2019-20
 
Its time to wrap up for I also want to respect your time as busy men and women so you can keep up with all the facets of your lives.  I’m sorry I have not been able to pay tribute to each of you individually in today’s comments, but I will try to make a point of mentioning leadership and special efforts made by members as the year goes along.
 
The Board has a retreat later this month and from that and the input at our planning session we may have further comments about short term priorities to make later in the summer.
 
In closing, let me say that as a club we have tremendous assets- our people, our brand, our stable financial picture. But we can’t for a minute assume we can rest on our laurels, I ask each of you to think of how you will make Rotary a little brighter this year, how you will shine your light on a project or initiative to make it more successful, how you support and attend Club events- because that’s how you brighten up everyone else’s world.
 
President Huang likes to quote that old Chinese proverb- it is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness…so let's start lighting those candles; let's shine our light brightly around our community and keep making a difference; let’s bring out the star quality in each of us make our 95th year one to remember!
 
Thank you!
 
President Len
