What's Happening at Simsbury-Granby?
Dear Rotarians,
 
Hurricane Harvey has caused massive destruction in Texas and more recently in Louisiana.  As Rotarians,  we know that support sent to Rotary Clubs and Districts in the areas most impacted will be used wisley in addressing this tremendous humanitarian crisis.
 
Hurricane Harvey made landfall last Friday night between Port Aransas and Port O'Connor, Texas as a Category 4 storm with winds of 130 MPH. The US has not had a Category 4 Hurricane make landfall since 2004.  As we have seen in news reports, the flooding and damage have been catastrophic and recovery may take a very long time. 
 
We have made contact with Rotary international and Rotary District 5930 which includes the area where Harvey made landfall.
I spoke briefly with District Governor Roberta "Betty" Ramirez-Lara- (www.Rotarydistrict5930.org).
 
Rotary District 5930 has partnered with McAllen North Rotary Fund - a 501 (c) 3 (Fed Tax ID # 27-3855943) to set up an Emergency Relief Fund.   Contributions can be made to:
Rotary District 5930
c/o McAllen North Rotary Fund
501  West Nolana      
McAllen, TX

Please use the attached donation form.  It form  can be faxed to 1-866-631-9998  or emailed to bettylararotary@gmail.com
Payments can be made by check or credit card.  
 
Thank you for your consideration and support in this time of need.
 
District Governor Dave Mangs

Fundraising is a major responsibility of the Simsbury-Granby Rotary Club. It enables us to support causes both locally and globally. We are asking you to support our first annual Taps In The Valley Festival. We will be bringing the ultimate craft brew experience into the Farmington Valley. This event will Feature local and regional craft breweries along with some popular food caterers and live music.

News From Rotary International
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,...
