Dear Rotary Club Members,
Becoming an International Exchange Student is always our son Casper Huang's wish since he was a high school freshman. We appreciate that you provide the opportunity for him to Austria to carry out his dream. We also want to thank you for recommending him to the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy which is happening now. We would like to donate the same amount of the camp fee to Rotary Club, so you can support more local youth in the future. 
We have seen your dedication to our community. It is touching and appreciated.
Sincerely, Frank & Cecilia Huang

"ROTARY SERVING HUMANITY" THEME FOR 2016-2017
R otary’s founder, Paul Harris, believed that serving humanity is “the most worthwhile thing a person can do,” RI
President-elect John F. Germ said, and that being a part of Rotary is a “great opportunity” to make that happen.
Germ unveiled the 2016-2017 presidential theme, Rotary Serving Humanity,
to incoming district governors on January 18 at the International Assembly in San
Diego, which was attended by District 5520 Governor-Elect David Anderson.
“I believe everyone recognizes the opportunity to serve Rotary for what it truly
is: not a small opportunity, but a great one; an opportunity of a lifetime to change
the world for the better, forever through Rotary’s service to humanity,” said Germ,
who is from Chattanooga, Tenn., and who will take over a RI president on July 1.
Rotary members around the globe are serving humanity by providing clean water to underdeveloped communities,
promoting peace in conflict areas, and strengthening communities through basic education and literacy. But
none more important than our work to eradicate polio worldwide, he said. After a historic year in which transmission
of the wild poliovirus was stopped in Nigeria and all of Africa, Germ said we are closer than ever to ending polio.
“We are at a crossroads in Rotary,” he added. “We are looking ahead at a year that may one day be known as
the greatest year in Rotary’s history: the year that sees the world’s last case of polio. 
 
 
 
"A few latitudes of gratitude for all you've done"  is on the card sent to Rotary from
the Socorro General Hospital Community Based Programs folks...
 
thanking Rotary for supplying the materials and preparing the gift bags given to the children at their annual Christmas party.
 
"Your generous donation to our children is deeply appreciated. Tools not toys will help them build strong foundations."
 
"CBP is really blessed to have your organization be so generous to us and brought big smiles to little faces."

Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...
