MONDAY'S PROGRAM

 

HAVE FUN!

Monday - October 6, 2014
Rotary District Governor
Randy Davies

Randy Davies has been a member of the Chillicothe First Capital Rotary Club since 2003. He was elected to the club’s Board of Directors in 2004 and became Club President 2006-07 and again in 2008-09. Becoming actively involved with the club from the beginning, Randy served on the club’s major fundraising project, selling ice at the Easyriders’ Motorcycle Rodeo, and became its co-chairperson. He also helped to establish a Chillicothe summer signature event, “First Thursdays”. With active members and a drive to serve its community, the club has grown from 18 members in the mid-2000s to nearly 50 members today.

Randy served District 6690 as Assistant Governor 2009-2012. He also serves as a school board member of the Ross-Pike Educational Service District, a board member for the Child Protection Center of Ross County and is a District Captain for the Patriot Guard Riders of Ohio. Randy also assisted with the establishment of Southern Ohio Crime Stoppers and served as a member of the advisory councils for the Ohio State University Extension Service and the Ohio Valley Regional Development Commission. Randy is the President and CEO of the Chillicothe Ross Chamber of Commerce.


Married to Kristi, also a member of the First Capital club, Randy has three children and three grandchildren. Both Paul Harris fellows, he and Kristi love riding their motorcycle, traveling, and meeting new friends while serving as volunteers at many events.

Dress nice and be prepared for the District Governor to take a "selfie" at our meeting.  DG Randy is known for snapping a picture from the podium. 

Join us at noon on Mondays at:

The Boat House at Confluence Park
679 W. Spring Street
Columbus, Ohio 43215

Join Leaders - Exchange Ideas - Take Action

 

 
 

Calling all Rotarians, Families and Friends.  Come enjoy the early part of your day with us. 

We need volunteers through out the day to help in the Rotary INFO booth, to act as timers for the Team Challenge and other small rolls.  None of these rolls will require your assistance for the entire event.  Contact Mark LaMonte or Scott Brown to volunteer.

ImageColumbus Rotary began recognizing member participation in addition to attendance at weekly luncheons using a program called Touch Points. To date participation in events other than weekly meetings were recorded only when information was made available to the club office. This will not change, however, members can now record their participation easily by going to the website www.ColumbusRotary.org. Relatively, the Touch Points will be awarded to members as follows:

•       1 touch point for attendance at weekly meetings, club socials, project/committee/Board/District/RI meetings, etc.
•       2 touch points for being an active volunteer at a Rotary function, chair committee/meetings, etc.
•       3 touch points for contributing at least $250 to Columbus Foundation or Paul Harris fellow, $100 to the RI foundation/Polio Plus or other fund raisers
•       4 touch points for every new member you sponsor that joins the club and pays dues for at least one year

For every Rotarian that achieves 52 touch points in a Rotary year, a “Perfect Participation” award will be made. This award will be added to our annual Perfect Attendance Awards. Recognition will be similar to the Perfect Attendance recognition.  

The awarding of Touch Points will be on the honor system. Each member determines the number of TPs they are eligible for and submits this information to the club on the club website. Doug Gouty, First Vice President Tricia Strahler and Scott Brown have made entering this data easy on the club website. I am sure there will be issues and we will use this year to evaluate and change as needed. Please bear with us as we are going through this change.

Congratulations to Columbus Rotary's Veteran Mentoring Initiative upon helping OSU obtain this special partnership.

Columbus, Ohio – Ohio State University has been selected by the Pat Tillman Foundation as a University Partner in its Tillman Military Scholars program. The program provides educational scholarships for veterans, active-duty service members and their spouses. As part of the Tillman Military Scholars program, Ohio State joins an elite network of institutions providing innovative support services to our nation’s veterans and their families.

University Partners are chosen based on their ability to meet criteria that include a culture of support for veterans across the institution, specific support services for veterans and a significant military/veteran enrollment.

 
 

On July 9, 2012 President Jim Maniace announced to members attending the Club's Monday luncheon that this would be our last weekly meeting at the Hyatt Regency.  Responding to a number of suggestions and positive comments from members and committees the Club Board voted to move the weekly meetings to The River Club at Confluence Park; 679 W. Spring Street as soon as possible.

Starting on July 16, 2012 the Club will meet weekly at the River Club.  Large signature events, such as the Service Above Self Fair, will be held at the Hyatt Regency.

Photo essay: Rotary past and present
This Membership Month, in celebration of over 100 years of service, we dug into the archives and found any number of parallels between today's Rotary and yesterday's. Though our world is constantly changing, this gallery reminds us how Rotary's core values have remained intact through the decades.
Rotary Peace Centers shape hundreds of careers in peace and conflict resolution
With bloody conflicts raging in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and parts of Central Africa, the message of nonviolence and reconciliation that nations worldwide will observe on 21 September demands more urgent and collective attention. In 2001 the United Nations designated the September date as an annual International Day of World Peace "to be observed as a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence" according to a General Assembly resolution. The day's devotion to peace connects closely with what Rotary members have been fostering since The Rotary Foundation's mission to advance world...
Illness leads former Navy code breaker to form world’s first Facebook-based Rotary club
When a life-threatening illness stripped away many of her professional ambitions, Amanda Wirtz, a former U.S. Navy code breaker and professional violinist, turned to humanitarian service and Facebook to give her life new purpose. Wirtz was in her twenties and pursuing a career as a fitness trainer when a sharp pain in her abdomen sent her to the emergency room. Expecting something manageable like appendicitis, she instead found herself facing a rare tumor disorder that required her to undergo 30 surgeries over the next several years. Forced to rethink her life plans, Wirtz began focusing on...
Tips to help your club find and nurture a Youth Exchange host family
With 12 children -- six girls and six boys -- the Labordes hardly needed to add another member to their family. But they did: Over 40 years ago, Julia Mullikin, a Rotary Youth Exchange student from the United States, became like another daughter to this large family in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. "She's been a blessing for us," says Maria Victoria Hallal de Laborde who was 18 when Mullikin arrived in 1973. Like many exchange students, Mullikin remains close to her host family. So close that when one of Laborde's sisters was diagnosed with a rare, fatal disease, Mullikin arranged to send the...
Free vegetable gardens sprouting up around France
Imagine a community where the residents are all free to plant, grow, harvest, and eat healthy food whenever they want without having to pay for it. Sound too good to be true? That's exactly what residents of more than 20 cities and towns in France are doing through a project called Potalib. Launched by the Rotaract Club of Versailles, Potalib was inspired by the Incredible Edible project, an international food-sharing movement founded by Nick Green in England. The Rotaract members obtained Green's permission to apply the concept in France, changing the name to "Potalib," a contraction of "...
