Water, the source of life, carries death and disease in much of the developing world. One in six people in the world have no access to safe drinking water. With help from Rotary sponsored water and sanitation projects, like the Haiti Water for Life Program, Rotarians have helped thousands of communities globally.

Providing Clean Water is one of Rotary International's Six Areas of Focus.

Did You Know?
 
One of the first large-scale global grant projects under the Rotary Foundation's Future Vision pilot is providing clean water to thousands in Sierra Leone.

Conversation: invitation to Rotary Club Niagara Falls Sunrise event

 

Dear fellow Rotarians,

The Rotary Club of Niagara Falls, Sunrise has a tradition of involving newer members in organizing a special event that is a social opportunity among Rotarians and a fund raising opportunity.  We realize that each club has its own events that they hold or support, but on behalf of the “new members” we would like to invite you and your members to our event on March 9th, entitled A Premiere Murder.  It is a murder mystery dinner and dance.  

Here is how the evening unfolds:  cocktails at 6:00, dinner at 7:00, (murder shortly thereafter), and dance at 9:00.  During the cocktails the scene will be set and throughout the dinner the audience will help solve the murder.  Once the culprit has been caught and taken away, you are free to enjoy the evening of fellowship and dancing.

We have created a Hollywood theme and are asking attendees to dress for the red carpet (cocktail attire).  We are also asking attendees to come as their favorite Hollywood personality or character from a movie.  Are there any Marilynn Monroe look-a-likes in your club?  How about someone as debonair as Clark Gable?

This should be a fun evening.  It is being held at the Grand Ballroom of the Stonemill Inn (Johnny Rocco’s, 271 Merritt Street, St. Catharines).  It is an evening of interactive dinner theatre.  Tickets are $75/person.  A four course dinner is being served.  Cash bar.  Call Brian Kon for tickets 905-704-9806 or by email at brian.kon@HotelDieuShaverFoundation.com <mailto:brian.kon@HotelDieuShaverFoundation.com> .

A poster has been attached.

Kaila Raimondo seems like the average highschool student, she's 16 years old, in grade 11, born and raised in Niagara Falls and dreams of becoming an orthodotist. However, what her unique is that she has won many awards, ranging from Most Volunteer Hours in her school, Patriotism Awards and Acedemic Proficiency Awards to name a few. Kaila was our guest speaker today and spoke about the Free the Children program as well as her own intiate to raise money to build a school in Kenya through the Me to We Program.

August is Membership and Extension month, a time to focus on the heart of Rotary and what makes it great -- more than 1.2 million members in nearly 33,000 clubs worldwide.

On this topic Jacquie Herman-Wing, from the We Care Program gave us some excellent insight into what Rotarians do well, what we could do better and what we do best.

All of us in Rotary are looking to change the world, for why else would we be Rotarians. We believe that our world can be happier, healthier, and more peaceful. We believe that the future can and will be better than the past. We are idealists, and we bring our ideals to life through our Rotary service. - Sheila Bristo.

Including the zero per cent tax increase that residents will be receiving this year in 2010, we have managed to hold our tax increases to an average of just over one per cent per year for the past five years - a significant achievement given ongoing financial pressures."

The Paul Harris Fellowship is named for Paul Harris who founded Rotary with three business associates in Chicago in 1905.

The Fellowship was established in his honour in 1957 to express appreciation for a contribution US$1,000 to the humanitarian and educational programs of The Rotary Foundation. Those programs include an array of projects that save and invigorate the lives of people around the world and enhance international friendship and understanding.
Foundation programs provide educational opportunities, food, potable water, health care, immunizations, and shelter for millions of persons. These activities are funded, implemented and managed by Rotarians and Rotary clubs around the globe.

Rotarians also designate a Paul Harris Fellow to recognize another person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the objectives and mission of the Rotary Foundation to build world understanding and peace.

As we move closer to a more peaceful world today, the following individuals become Paul Harris Fellows:

Lest we forget...We pay tribute to the many Canadians who have made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live in a country free from tyranny and governed by freedom, democracy and justice.

From the battle of Vimy Ridge, to the beaches of Normandy, to the dusty roads of Afghanistan, these brave men and women put our country's welfare before their own and we owe them and their families a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.

You Are The Missing Piece. Membership Chair Sheila Bristo speaks on Rotary Membership Month.

By participating in local and international service projects, club members can volunteer their time and talents where they're most needed.

The Avenues of Service are Rotary's philosophical cornerstone and the foundation on which club activity is based:

  • Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the club's effective functioning.
  • Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.
  • Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community.
  • International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.
  • New Generations Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities, service projects, and exchange programs.

Every year, thousands of people are victims of identity theft.  Identity crime is the fastest growing crime in North America and all of us are potential victims. While recent developments in telecommunications and computer processing make it easier for companies and consumers to reach each other, they can also scatter your personal information more widely, making life easier for criminals.

You've disturbed a mighty river
