VOLUNTEERS - where would this world be without them?  1,000's of hours are donated and dedicated to our communities each year by "volunteers" or almost volunteers to make our communities better or at least to make a few lives better.  Men and women that I call almost volunteers like our "paid call" firefighters, local Park, Library,             Planning commissions, Board of Appeals, Board of Review and others may receive a small per diem or other pay but it does not cover their time and expenses typically.  I read recently that "A Volunteer is someone that does not get paid- not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless."

     Erma Bombeck said "Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nations compassion, unselfish caring, patience and just plain love of others."  Does that describe people you know or who live in your neighborhood?  Do you see them when you drop your kids or grandkids off at scouts, church or school?  Do you recognize them - our community is full of silent selfless servants.  Tell them thanks next time you see them- it may be the first time in months.  Can you imagine what a sad community and nation we would have without our uselfish servants, our voluteers?

Incoming Rotary International President Ray Klinginsmith said "Blessed are those who dream dreams and are willing to pay the price to make them come true" (enfice added).  I first heard those words several weeks ago and again last Saturday but it took a while to sink in.  Are our dreams worth paying for?  How much would you pay to see your dreams come true?

As Rotarians we dream of a world free of Polio, a world where no child dies from contaminated water or malnutrition and a world at peace.  As Rotarians we dream of communities with adequate parks, well stocked libraries, tree lined streets and all residents having enough to eat and proper medical care.  Those are but a few of Rotarians dreams.  Rotary Clubs, Rotarians and friends of Rotary world wide have shown a willingness to pay the price to make their dreams come true time and time again.

No you do not have to be a Rotarian to dream dreams but it helps with dreams as large as the eradication of Polio.  What about you and I and our dreams for our community?  Are we willing to pay the price to make them come true?  The answer has to be yes because our community deserves no less.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
Centennial celebration honors 20 noteworthy global grant projects

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
