Everyone had a blast at the 2016 Thanksgiving Dinner at Baked in Telluride!  Big thanks to our host Jerry Green! 
 
 
We had our annual Foreign Exchange Open House at the local library in Telluride where our RYE kids (and AFS, too) talked about their exchange experiences (our American kids were there, too…those who have been broad and have returned)….and RYE made the FRONT PAGE of today’s (Sunday’s) paper!  Fabio and Rebeka are soooo excited to see themselves in the local paper, let alone on the FRONT PAGE!
 
Enjoy the story……GREAT  publicity for our RYE program….  We had about 40 kids and parents attend to find out about the exchange experience and explore whether it is a good program for them now, next year, or a year or two from now!
 
 
 
Rotary Members, Club Presidents and Boards,
 
The District Board and Foundation Committee are responding to a specific interest from individuals and clubs wishing to form a Donor Advised Fund for Disaster Relief.
 
Our Rotary members want a mechanism to help those in need and have been responding outside of The Rotary Foundation to international disaster needs in Nepal, Guatemala, Ecuador and in the US.  
 
 
The International Service newsletter #2 provides information about our district’s International Service activities.  These include: summaries of recent Global Grants projects, upcoming Vocational Training Teams, Rotary volunteer opportunities, D-5470 travel opportunities, etc. These stories are designed to make you aware of what our clubs are doing internationally. If you want more information on some of the projects, feel free to contact the Rotarian mentioned in the each story.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
Centennial celebration honors 20 noteworthy global grant projects

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. 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...
