 LO QUE HEMOS HECHO EN ESTE CORTO TIEMPO,,, CON SU AYUDA

 

¡Felicitaciones a todos!!!!                             By David León, La Prensa Colombiana

Especialmente, a los que hicieron o tuvieron su aporte para construir el bote y el que no solamente llevó a dos atletas que pusieron todas sus fuerzas para ganar, sino también la alegría de todos nosotros... de ser los campeones!!!!!
¡Gracias nuevamente! Se demostró que uniendo fuerzas se logran objetivos y si los objetivos son canalizar ayuda a los necesitados en Colombia, unámonos todos y juntos ayúdemos a construír ese barco tan bello llamado Colombia!!! Y claro, dirigidos con nuestro capitán mayor: Nuestro Divino Hacedor.

Un abrazo!!
David León

NUESTRO CLUB 3ER ANIVERSARIO     by Dora Rueda    

      
El pasado 26 de agosto del 2010, con gran beneplácito el Club Rotario Colombo  Americano, celebro su tercer aniversario. Coincidió con la reunión ordinaria de sus miembros, quienes cada jueves,  independientemente de sus ocupaciones normales dedican este espacio para planificar, programar y ejecutar los distintos proyectos que lleguen a beneficiar a nuestra comunidad. Quizá fue esta fecha tan especial para nosotros los Rotarios, la que creó un ambiente único e inolvidable, donde cada uno de sus integrantes se expreso y se sensibilizo de manera abierta y espontanea, sus sentimientos hacia lo que ha significado, para todos y cada uno el ser parte de

 

ROTARY WHEELCHAIR DAY                                 by Gildardo Padilla

Rotary Wheelchair Day was Saturday, March 13, 2010. The event was hold at the Goodwill Industries SoCal Headquarters, and many Clubs and Rotarians attended. Of course, our Club, Colombo Americano was present too. Many recipients in need were drove to the distribution to be fitted for a chair and take them home. As usually, a lot of refreshment were served, and many photographs were taken in order for us and for the recipients do not forget that wonderful day. It is impossible to ignore the impact that a wheelchair makes in a person in needed. The most important reward that somebody can get in helping projects like this is just to see the spontaneous happy face in the recipients. Our club was honored by given one of this wheelchair to Ascension Gutierrez.  

El día 6 de marzo se llevo a cabo en las instalaciones del Auditorio de la escuela Leuzinger,  el treinta y nueve 'Memorabilia day" en este día los ex-algunos aprovechan para visitar la escuela y reunirse con sus antiguos profesores y amigos, entre las personalidades que se hicieron presente cabe mencionar: Cetinela valley School District-superintendent MR. José Fernández entre otros. Tuvimos el agrado de disfrutar de una velada excelente amenizada por la banda de la escuela y algunos grupos musicales de baile como de aficionados.   

 

 

LA COMPETENCIA DE BARCOS DE CARTON EN MANHATTAN BEACH

Ante la sorpresa de los clubes veteranos en el concurso, Nuestro Club fue el Ganador de la competencia del "Carboard Boat Race", que tuvo lugar en Seaside Lagoon Manhattan Beach. Cabe decir que dejamos verdaderamente asombrados a los clubes que se consideraban expertos en la materia, esto solo hasta que se encontraron con "B.....  Colombianos".

 

Nino que participo en la última jornada hecha en San Juan de Pasto, Nariño

Cuando el Diseñador Industrial Ernie Meadows y su esposa Marj, perdieron su hija "Ellen", Ernie decide crear un legado in Memoria de su hija. "Elle" murió en un accidente automovilístico cuando solo tenía 18 anos.

Al principio Ernie solo pensó crear las prótesis para niños y adolecentes víctimas de las minas personales. Y diseñó una prótesis a bajo costo. El sabía que quería ayudar a todo el que necesitara una prótesis y no tuviera otra alternativa.

Por experiencia sabemos que los que más se benefician de los LN-4 han sido víctimas de las minas, accidentes de trabajo, actos de violencia, o condiciones congénitas.

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,...

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...
