Rotary of BH: Ebola Fighters
Rotarians of Beverly Hills,
The Rotary Club of Monrovia thanks you and your club for support provided to our efforts in response to the Ebola Virus Disease in Liberia.  We are now only 24 days away from being declared Ebola free, as there are no current cases.  Your contributions made a difference.
We have developed a video of our response and are pleased to share it with you in the link below.
We would ask that you share the video and Facebook page with your club and Light up Rotary.  You, too, are The Ebola Fighters.
Yours in Rotary,
Vicki

The Sport of Rowing contains wonderful stories, anecdotes and compelling tales, some told for the very first time, as well as photos and images from historic films, many long forgotten, along with the words of athletes and coaches who have made rowing history.

2015 Guatemala Humanitarian Trip
The indigenous people living outside Guatemala's major cities are the most wonderful people you can meet but also the poorest in our hemisphere. The population is expanding faster than the general services they require for education, health and general infrastructure, such as clean water. The Rotary Clubs of District 5280, along with the Rotary clubs of Guatemala have collaborated on six Global Grant projects to help the Guatemalans living in the countryside. February 5 - 9, the humanitarian trip attendees will experience first-hand the wonderful achievements from our generous donations. The Rotary Club of Beverly Hills will contribute $10,000 to the Global Humanitarian Grant projects. Learn more and register!

PRESIDENTS REPORT.  Our own Joe Longo had his brother Frank come down from Stanford to speak at our Club on Monday regarding Emerging Strategies for Preventing and Treating Alzheimer’s Disease.  His presentation was enlightening regarding all the breakthroughs that are being done at his lab.  We need to make sure we get out and exercise more to keep not only our bodies, but also our minds in shape.
 
And how about Adrienne Weise with little Lara Davies!  I loved that we heard firsthand from a student of the Beverly Hills Academic Afterschool Tutoring Program describe the benefits she received from having a tutor.  A number of our members currently participate in the tutoring program.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact adriennetutor@gmail.com or 310-285-6810.
 
LUNCH FEE/ATTENDANCE.  Beginning this Monday, our lunch will cost $40 per members.  Also, Attending meetings is one of the basic obligations a member accepts upon joining Rotary.  Let’s see our numbers increase.  Absence of any member deprives the Club of the value of its membership, the contributions to ongoing Club projects, and the personal fellowship of each member.
 
PROGRAM FOR AUGUST 5, 2013. Our speaker this Monday, August 5 is Los Angeles County Sheriff Leroy “Lee” Baca.  Sheriff Baca was born in East Los Angeles. Sheriff Baca joined the Sheriff’s Department in 1965, and rose through the ranks to the position of chief.  In 1998, he was elected Sheriff of the County of Los Angeles.  Sheriff Baca has expanded the Sheriff’s Department from 14,000 to 18,000 employees through progressive, constitutionally based values; innovation, creativity and public trust programs.  These 18,000 sworn and professional staff provide law enforcement services throughout Los Angeles County to forty-two incorporated cities, 140 unincorporated communities, nine community colleges, and thousands of Metropolitan Transit Authority and Rapid Rail Transit District daily commuters.   He founded the LASD University program to improve the college education of his employees.  Sheriff Baca also founded the first Education-Based Incarceration Program in the nation, which ensures a path to re-entry for all inmates. 
 
EVENING FELLOWSHIP EVENT AT PENINSULA HOTEL – August 26, 2013.  Save the Date. The Young Professionals of Rotary Club of Beverly Hills will be hosting a Fellowship Event at the Peninsula Hotel the evening of August 26.  We will be DARK for lunch.  I encourage you to attend this great event where will be participating in a program that will have you meet and foster fellowship with our Young Professionals.  The cost to our members is $50.00.  This includes great food and wine (additional liquor is extra).  Many thanks to Offer Nissenbaum and the Peninsula Hotel.

On June 9, 2013, Interact District 5280 held its Aloha Brunch at the Hacienda Hotel to recognize the achievements of the Interactor’s during the 2012-2013 school year.  At the brunch, our own Nicole Sayegh was named an Assistant Governor of Interact District 5280 for the upcoming year. Interact is Rotary’s service club of youth ages 12-18.  The goals of Interact include developing leadership skills and personal integrity, demonstrating helpfulness and respect for other, understanding the value of individual responsibility and hard work, and advancing international understanding and goodwill.

With close to 200 attendees, all District Interact clubs were represented.  For the BHHS Interact Club, in attendance were Nicole, Isaac Rosenthal, Mayan Maryamian, Chelsea Simmons, Samantha Smith and Jan Pak along with Adam Heller, who is the incoming VP of New Generations, Les Bronte who is Chair of the Interact Club and myself.  I was inspired hearing these young men and women described the achievements they made during the year which included raising funds for Uganda Aid Relief, Canned Food Drives, Book Buddies, Lupus LA, National Pancreatic Society, just to name a few.  In addition, they discussed the wonderful events they held during the year and RYLA, the Rotary Youth Leadership Award weekend.

The 2012-2013 BHHS Interact Club’s membership increased to over 100 members.  This is in part thanks to the leadership of Nicole and her board of directors.  We are all proud of the work she has accomplished this year – and we look forward having her again as president for 2013-2014.    

Per Past RI President Luis Vicente Giay, “Our vision for the future, now more than ever, is the difference between success and failure.  The New Generations are our investment in the future.  Let us begin to build that future today.”

This is preliminary because planning is still occuring with the Panamanian Clubs to finalize the projects.There will be some shuffling around, and maybe even some additions or deletions, but this is what is planned as of now. If you have received an application the deadline for sumitting the application and down payment is Friday November 9th..

Several excursions are planned for every day. While Rotarians are encouraged to go on as many project trips as possible, the excursions will be attractive for spouses and families, and everyone can attend any excursion, including Rotarians. There also will be excursions available for Rotarians (and their families) before and after the "formal" trip dates. We are currently working on the cost of the trip. The cost will include airfare, double-occupancy hotel, transportation and all lunches and dinners. While the cost may change some our current estimate per person is $1,285.
