What's Happening with Lincoln Rotary!
 

 
The Rotary Club of Lincoln has committed to sponsoring The SUPER KIDS Classic portion of the 1st. Annual Lincoln Soap Box Derby being held August12, 2017.

 Super Kids was introduced to Canada in 2008 to open the doors of inclusion for
kids and youth with cognitive, developmental and physical challenges. With over
25 years of involvement in the sport of soap box derby racing and seeing many
kids captive on the sidelines watching siblings and friends racing, it was felt that
Super Kids was the very thing that would open the doors to these awesome kids to
the sport.

Unlike regular racing, Super Kids racers are not required to build and own their
own soap box derby cars. The special two seater cars used in this program are
provided by the local organization.

Since its introduction to Canada, nearly 20 special needs kids have had the
opportunity to represent their communities and Canada in Akron at the World
Championships. In 2015 a Canadian Super Kid won the National Super Kids World
Championships and a Canadian racer was the 2016 World Champion runner-up.

But the bottom line is all of these kids got to proclaim to the world, " LOOK AT
ME ! I'M A SOAP BOX DERBY RACER !!! "

For her 60th birthday, Barb Mitges received the gift of $600.00 from Jennifer Hopkins former Lincoln Rotarian to be given to a charity of her choice. While at the District Conference in Batavia she discovered District 7090 " Gift of Life " program  and decided to support that charity. This program brings children to the Children's Hospital in Buffalo and Sick Kids in Toronto for cardiac surgery. Since 1996 they have been able to save 44 children. Their brochure shows pictures of these children
There are 67 Gift of Life Preograms throughout the world and has treated 17,000 children from 67 countries. 
Valerie Phillips from Hagersville spoke eloquently about the program and received a cheque for $800.00 from Barb Mitges.  She also informed us that teams of nurses and doctors are now going to the Dominican to train staff in those countries. 
 
Thanks to Barb and George for hosting this event at their home.

Rotary Club of Lincoln --- 35th. Paul Harris Fellow
MARY ANN SCHLABACH (2017)

In 1966, Mary Ann Schlabach and her husband, Beland, began extending hospitality and a helping hand to Jamaicans who were working on the Smith Farm in Vineland Station. Mary Ann became a driving force in the organization of the Caribbean Workers Outreach Program (CWOP) established in 1992..

While Mary Ann has served CWOP in key leadership roles including treasurer and more recently, program coordinator, she has contributed immeasurably through her endless acts of kindness. The workers know her as “Sister Mary Ann”.

Over five decades, Mary Ann Schabach’s tireless work and devotion as a humanitarian has enriched the lives of thousands of Caribbean men and women employed as seasonal workers on Niagara farms.

Rotary is an organization of people united worldwide to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Paul Harris, a young lawyer, and three of his friends founded Rotary in 1905 in Chicago, Illinois, USA. Following his death in 1947, The Rotary Foundation created Paul Harris Fellow recognition in his honour.

The heart of Rotary is Service Above Self. The Rotary Club of Lincoln is proud to honour Mary Ann Schlabach as a Paul Harris Fellow in tribute to her shared purpose with the objectives of Rotary.

 

 

 
 
 
Juan Carlos is a member of the Guatemala Sur Rotary Club which has 70 members all of which belong to the Paul Harris Fellowship Club. They have one project which is the St. Olaf School. 
The first challenge in Guatemala is malnutrition. Juan spoke about a mechanical cow which produces soy milk.  
The second challenge is maternal and child health. Mothers are mal nourished. Newborn intensive care unites are overcrowded. 
Rural areas have minimal service
Midwives need training
Need for reduced maternal and child mortality in rural ares. 
 
FOCUS: Training  midwives; getting  women to cities to give birth; identifying high risk pregnancies. 
 
The hands and heart of God are seen through Rotary supply funds so that  Doctors and Nurses can go into the community to train midwives. 2.5 million dollars is needed.
