What's going on?

Together, we provide. Children received backpacks and supplies to ensure a successful start to school- that's what people of action do. Join us Wednesdays at noon at Fratelli's to learn about our community service projects. Heightsrotary.org.

Our club just received word that our Global Grant to Ghana has been approved!  Our club contributed $1000 toward this grant, along with other clubs in District 5890 to bring needed agricultural benefits to this region...here is a little bit of information about the nature of the grant:

The goal of this two-year project is to increase economic prosperity and build resilient pro-poor communities around Mole National Park. This objective is pursued by diversifying the local economy and reducing dependency on limited land resources, while creating opportunities for people to be included as suppliers, managers, and owners of economic infrastructure. The project seeks to employ strategies that enhance existing social, natural, human, and financial capital in an environment where distance to markets makes all the difference in livelihood strategy decisions.
 
Our good Rotarian, Ervin Lehman, presents Paris Gibbs with a pair of shark-skin boots to recognize his continued sponsorship of our annual golf tournament.  Paris is and has been a tremendous supporter of our club and we always want to thank him for everything he does for our club.  The funds raised from our golf tournament are directed through our Foundation to scholarships which we provide each year to deserving students from the Heights!
Rotarians from our club spent the day at our annual Book Fair at the Heights Library.  Each year we sell books at a great discount to the residents and friends from The Heights.  Proceeds benefit the library...summer reading programs and special items to help the staff.  The weather was great the the crowds were good.  
   

The Heights Rotary participated in an international project with eight other area Clubs to build four classrooms at the Cheheltan Middle School in Kabul, Afghanistan.  Before the classrooms were built, students were holding classes outside in the sun and under tents.  Girls in the morning and boys in the afternoon.  The project, started by the Humble Intercontinental Club, raised over $10,000 to build and furnish the classrooms.  The project was completed in October, 2012.

Check out the Photo Gallery to see pictures of the project, especially the girl holding the Heights Rotary banner.

News from R.I.
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...
