MONDAY'S PROGRAM

I am very happy to update you all on the Rotary Homeless Outreach Program. We had assembly night this past Friday and I am overjoyed to announce that we reached our goal of 100 care packages, with a total of 103. We had a great assembly line going and were able to build all the care packages within an hour!
 
We have collected $334.00 towards this service opportunity, which will go towards the purchase of extra gloves, hand warmers, and documentation services from James Cline Studios; who will be riding along with us this week. Thank you to all of those who have donated, we could not have this without you.
 
As a reminder, distribution is coming this Thursday beginning at 3:30 pm and going until 8:00 pm. Each distribution stop is about a half hour long, and you can choose to assist at as many or as few stops as you like. Lists of the distribution sites are available at the Rotary Office or by contacting Alexis Evans.
 
A note on safety: this can be a volatile group of individuals, so for those of you who will be distributing make sure not to bring any cash, and keep all physical contact to passing out the care packages and handshakes only.
 
If anyone has any last minute questions or donations, please contact Alexis Evans at 614-446-0784.
 

 

HAVE FUN!

"Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine-Dublin Campus"
Rick Studer, Project Coordinator and guests

There has never been a more exciting time to be a part of the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine. In addition to the development of our regional extension campus in central Ohio, we have the many medical education, research and community service initiatives that we will launch as part of our historic $105 million Osteopathic Heritage Foundations gift. We also have expanding partnerships and collaborations on the horizon, as well as many other changes that make this an extremely exciting and important time in the history of this college.

The transformational changes we’re working on today build on a decade of dramatic transition and expansion for our college. Twice as many applicants now apply to OU-HCOM, and students’ GPAs and test scores have risen dramatically. Our entering class has grown by 40 percent while the number of partners in our consortium of teaching hospitals and clinical faculty has more than doubled. That consortium, called the Centers for Osteopathic Research and Education (CORE), is widely recognized as one of the premier clinical training systems in the nation. Meanwhile, our faculty members have gained national recognition for their research efforts, and their discoveries have saved countless lives. 


Join us at noon on Mondays at:
The Boat House at Confluence Park
679 W. Spring Street
Columbus, Ohio 43215

As Rotary continues to grow and evolve in our second century of existence it is always helpful to look back at our beginning.  This is an excerpt from a Rotary.org article about "Rotary's Founder", Paul Harris.  

In the fall of 1900, Paul P. Harris met fellow attorney Bob Frank for dinner on the north side of Chicago. They walked around the area, stopping at shops along the way. Harris was impressed that Frank was friendly with many of the shopkeepers.  
Harris had not seen this kind of camaraderie among businessmen since moving to Chicago in 1896. He wondered if there was a way to channel it because it reminded him of growing up in Wallingford, Vermont. Harris eventually persuaded local businessmen to join him in a club for community and fellowship. His vision laid the foundation for Rotary.

“The thought persisted that I was experiencing only what had happened to hundreds, perhaps thousands, of others in the great city … I was sure that there must be many other young men who had come from farms and small villages to establish themselves in Chicago ... Why not bring them together? If others were longing for fellowship as I was, something would come of it.”

After setting up his law practice in Chicago, Harris gathered several business associates to discuss the idea of forming an organization for local professionals. On 23 February 1905 Harris, Gustavus Loehr, Silvester Schiele, and Hiram Shorey gathered at Loehr’s office in Room 711 of the Unity Building in downtown Chicago. This was the first Rotary club meeting.

In February 1907, Harris was elected the third president of the Rotary Club of Chicago, a position he held until the fall of 1908. During his presidency, he formed the Executive Committee, later called the Ways and Means Committee, which met during lunch and was open to any member. The noon meeting was the foundation for Rotary's tradition of club luncheon meetings.  Toward the end of his club presidency, Harris worked to expand Rotary beyond Chicago. Some club members resisted, not wanting to take on the additional financial burden. But Harris persisted and by 1910 Rotary had expanded to several other major U.S. cities.

Harris recognized the need to form an executive board of directors and a national association. In August 1910 Rotarians held their first national convention in Chicago, where the 16 existing clubs unified as the National Association of Rotary Clubs. The new association unanimously elected Harris as its president.

At the end of his second term, Harris resigned, citing ill health and the demands of his professional practice and personal life. He was elected president emeritus by convention action, a title he held until his death.  In the mid-1920s Harris became actively involved in Rotary again, attending conventions and visiting clubs throughout the world.

Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
San Francisco club reveals formula for growth and retention of members
Members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco Evening meet three times a month at a wine bar after work, share a social outing once a month, and promote all their activities on social media like Meetup and Facebook. As the first evening club in the city, it has attracted many young professionals from Silicon Valley tech firms whose work schedules keep them from joining a more traditional club that meets for breakfast or lunch. But more than that, the evening format has helped the club grow by 30 percent since it received its charter in mid-2013. Danielle Lallement, who was its charter president...
Colorado joins Kosovo club to restore sanitation in blighted local schools
Blighted schools in the mountain city of Peja in western Kosovo are a reminder of the ethnic strife and war that ravaged this area in the 1990s. To restore ruined sanitation facilities in some of those schools, local Rotary members recently partnered with their counterparts from Colorado, USA. Though residents have been slowly rebuilding the city's infrastructure after years of neglect under earlier governments, most resources are going to improve roads, rebuild homes, and create new businesses. Little money remains to restore the schools. As a result, students have fallen ill, stayed home...
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...
