December is Rotary Disease Prevention and Treatment Month 
Rotary's top priority is the eradication of polio, but our members take on far greater responsibilities to fight disease. Rotarians set up health camps and training facilities in undeveloped countries and in communities struggling with HIV/AIDS and malaria. They also design and build the infrastructure for doctors, nurses, governments, and partners to reach the one in six people in the world who can't afford to pay for health care.

Disease prevention and treatment takes on many forms, from supporting studies to helping immunize people to improving drinking water and the sanitation infrastructure. The world relies on Rotary to tackle these global challenges, and to set an example for others to follow.

Eradicate Polio Worldwide 
Every $1 Rotary commits to direct support for polio immunization will be matched 2-to-1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Therefore $1 = $3; $20 = $60, $100 = $300 etc.
Please provide Sandy Ronson with your PolioPlus donation information.

Rotary Club of Burton, MI “Thank You”
“We received your check today for the Rotary Avoidable Blindness Project in the amount of $500.00 US funds.  Please thank your club for their support on this project.  It is greatly appreciated.  
Sincerely,   Dr. Brad Habermehl, Avoidable Blindness Chairman”

The Burton Rotary Club is chairing for the 19th year the Avoidable Blindness Project in Empalme’, Sonora, Mexico.  They have a continued partnership with the Emplame Rotary Club where they travel with a group of volunteer Rotarians, family members, and friends along with optometry students to examine over 2,000 patients. 

At our October Board meeting it was agreed we would forward approximately 100 eyeglasses and US$500 for this project. The used glasses will be cleaned, disinfected, and categorized for patients they examine in Mexico.  Each patient will also receive sunglasses and reading glasses as well.


Start2Finish Running & Reading Club Volunteers
The Start2Finish Reading and Running Club Program is one of our Club's local service projects for this Rotary year. 

Start2Finish is looking for volunteers to help, on a consistent basis. It's an after-school program that runs at the following 5 TVDSB locations on the days indicated from 3:30pm to 5:30pm:
Wilton Grove (Adelaide and Southdale) - Tuesdays
Wilfrid Jury (Sarnia and Wonderland) - Tuesdays
Woodland Heights (Springbank and Wonderland) - Wednesdays
FD Roosevelt (First and Oxford) - Wednesdays
Trafalgar (Trafalgar and Hamilton) - Wednesdays

The first half of the club is devoted to physical activity and the second half is literacy.  All volunteers are not runners - there are ways to support the kids without actually running. The highest needs, for volunteers, are at Wilfrid Jury and Wilton Grove.  They have a high percentage of Western student volunteers, who are away most of December, reading week, and from spring exams on.  Those times they are extremely low on volunteers at that club.

Please forward any questions on to Kristan who is happy to answer anything!

Breakfast of Champions Award Recipient
This past Tuesday at the Breakfast of Champions, organized by St. Joseph’s Health Care Foundation and the Middlesex branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), the two Champion of Mental Health Awards were presented by CMHA Middlesex.  They recognize a group and an individual who make significant contributions to mental wellness in our community.

Mental health advocate Kristen Legault-Donkers, a psychology student at King’s University College, received the ‘individual’ award for the series of books she published on depression, anxiety, ADHD and bipolar disorder geared to children. Through a partnership with our Rotary Club the books will be distributed to 100 elementary schools in the Thames Valley District School Board. Congratulations Kristen!

Many “Thanks” to Jim Swan for uploading these videos.  

To celebrate 100 years of service to the London community, Rotary clubs in London are donating $100,000 to install a 14-foot illuminated clock in the tower at Covent Garden Market.  

Highly visible to patrons of Budweiser Gardens and the Market, the clock will enhance the area known as Rotary Square that is home to the Rotary Skating Rink and numerous community events.

Construction will begin in late fall with the official grand opening in March 2015. The same clock builder installed the clock in the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in Ottawa – The Verdin Company.  

The clock will be a spectacular enhancement to the existing Market structure and beautify the area while raising the profile of Rotary Square.
