Some thoughts

Make Rotary more central to members’ lives than a mere networking opportunity.  “People tend to compartmentalize. They see Rotary as part of the workweek, and that holds a lot of clubs back. Members think, ‘I’ve got Rotary today,’ like it’s a business meeting. A club should be much more than one of our business duties.  It is a big part of our lives, almost a family thing.

The best and worst things about Rotary are really the same thing – that weekly meeting. People are scared to make such a big commitment. But if you’ve got the right club with the right sort of people, it’s not a chore. It’s something you aim for.

Four highly-trained ShelterBox Response Teams have been deployed to help families who have lost everything after Hurricane Irma. There team in Panama has moved to Barbados to work on the complex logistics of getting aid to the most vulnerable. 300 ShelterKits are now in Antigua with the remaining 200 en route to St Kitts and Nevis, where a second team will soon start distributing aid. A third team is going to the Dominican Republic where we’re hoping to provide another 500 ShelterKits, and a fourth team is conducting needs assessments in the British Virgin Islands.
