Many of you many be familiar with the Movember project. For those that aren't familiar with it, the project involves men growing a moustache during the month to raise awareness about men's diseases.
 
This year Rotary Clubs of The Bahamas have partnered with Tribune Radio Network to host a Movember project in The Bahamas. A number of events have been planned to help raise awareness of the project and men's health diseases. These include the following:
 
  • 23rd November - 12 pm - 4 pm - Live remote from Rawson Square with blood testing provided onsite
  • 25th November - 5 - 7 pm  Live Remote from Green Parrot. Blood testing provided onsite
  • 2nd December - Movember Shaving Party - sponsored by Sands Beer. 
Prizes will be given to those being tested both days including tickets to Battle for Atlantis. The grand prize to be drawn on 2nd December is a trip for two to the Miami Dolphins game on 11th December.

Gratitude is extended to the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman, who immediately responded to the needs of The Rotary Clubs of The Bahamas and galvanized its members and others by collecting an assortment of chainsaws, generators, clothing and food supplies, inclusive of water.

The team from Bahamasair, led by Past President Captain Gus Roberts of the Rotary Club of New Providence, transferred the items to New Providence and were met at the airport by President Elburt Ferguson and Past President Ken Strachan (also from the Rotary Club of New Providence)

Efforts are currently being made to having the collected items be distributed by Rotary Bahamas to assist persons affected in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.

These efforts are greatly appreciated and we wish to continue to humbly solicit the support of Rotarians throughout District 7020 and the greater body of Rotary International in our quest to meet the needs of victims of Hurricane Matthew. #hurricanematthew #rotary #bahamas

An amazing , fulfilling and rewarding day spent at the "Penn Pratt Co Ed School" located at the Simpson Penn School for Boys yesterday, as the members of RCNP engaged in living out Rotary's mantra "Service Above Self". RCNP members engaged a group of young men in the art of building benches, and on completion, the young ladies varnished them. The day begun with the building of the benches, while the ladies of the Club conducted mentoring sessions to the young ladies on Careers, Our Choices and Life Lessons. It was then time to take to the play fields for games including Sack races, Egg n Spoon, Apple Bobbing, and we ended with a Volleyball competition between the Co Ed School and RCNP members. An exciting match that resulted in the Penn Pratt Co Ed School winning 2 games to nil, but, an excellent display of team spirits by all.

The call for lunch was echoing from the grill, and what an awesome spread of delicious hamburgers, cheeseburgers, chips,drinks and candies.Those youngsters could surely put it down! But the treats did not end there as RCNP surprised all the youngsters who celebrated birthdays from January to June with a scrumptious birthday cake and we all joined hands and sang "Happy Birthday ".

Then that time of the evening came to say goodbyes, and offer words of encouragement to the youngsters, some of whom spoke about the exciting day they had, career choices once they left their schools, and the many lessons they've learned.

We the members of the Rotary Club of New Providence have committed to partnering with the Co-Ed Institutions from a holistic approach to include on-going service projects, modernizing the Libraries and most importantly to mentor our youngsters so that they may have a productive return to society.

Awesome day in Rotary!!!

The Rotary Club of New Providence together with Big Bills Paving Company on May 10th, 2016, Cleared an area for the future garden site at the Penn Pratt Co Ed School" located at the Simpson Penn School for Boys.

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...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
