On Monday November 14th, Jeff Wilson was sworn in as an Administrative Law Judge in the presence of family members and friends. Mayor Don Guardian, a long time friend of Jeff was on hand to give remarks and inject some humor into the occasion. Congratulations and best wishes Jeff.
Attention, our December 8th meeting will be a service project meeting at Globe Vending 111 E Parkway Dr, Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08234 at 5:30 PM. The board meeting for this date will be rescheduled. There will be no meeting at the Chart House on 12/8
President Joe presents Frank Formica with a coveted AC Rotary mug.
Frank gave us a history of Formica Bakery and of politics in NJ, Atlantic County,
and Atlantic City. He is very knowledgeable.
Ten Rotarian's traveled to Panama to assemble and deliver water filters to families in the Chepo Region. There were four members from AC Rotary and members from OC/UT club and our District Governor Elect Tom and his wife Michelle on the trip which was coordinated by Ted Lands and organized by the Woodland Charities of Central America. 200 filters were delivered to households, many of which house multiple families. The team worked at the local school in each village, where they assembled filters, met the children and families who were to receive the filters. In some cases Rotarian's brought the filters to the homes to demonstrate them. The filters are medical grade, used in dialysis machines. They are capable of being back washed with a syringe and can be effective indefinitely. 
Bernadette K, Tim, Marty, and Jeanne
Led by Bernadette Jennings, AC Rotary donated $200.00 to purchase candy for the event. We were assigned to Bader field, one of three locations in the city. Candy was dispensed from Kerbeck Cadillac trunks. Many families participated. Mayor Guardian was spotted in the crowd dressed as George Washington.

Is anyone interested in working on this with me? I have two hosts so far. I need at least two more.
 
We will be hosting a delegation of 7 Teachers from the Ukraine from October 13 to the 21st. They are Secondary School Language Teachers. The Subject is "Improved Language Education for Secondary Schools. I need a few more host families and a few committee members.
 
HOSTING AN OPEN WORLD DELEGATION
The Open World program brings current and future leaders from post-Soviet countries to the United
States. Delegates complete an intensive, short-term program that relates to their professional or civic
work. Observing their professional counterparts in the U.S., they get a firsthand look at the American
system of democracy and free enterprise.
Rotary clubs in the United States can participate in the program, which is managed by the Open World
Leadership Center and funded by Congress. Rotary districts or clubs prepare an eight-day program that’s
designed around an Open World civic theme, such as:
• Accountable governance
• NGO development
• Higher education and innovation
• Social issues, focusing on health care provision and social services including special education
• Entrepreneurship and Innovation
The program emphasizes professional development, exchange, and cooperation. Key concepts include
transparency, accountability, civic initiative, and volunteerism.
WHAT DOES A HOST ROTARY CLUB DO?
The host club coordinates all on-the-ground logistics and prepares a program schedule:
1. Provides a homestay for six Open World participants and an interpreter for eight days and nights
2. Meets participants at the airport, and provides transportation between scheduled events,
activities, Rotary club meetings, etc.
3. Prepares a substantive program schedule that includes professional meetings for a minimum of
four full working days (32 hours), meals, cultural activities, and opportunities for participants and
hosts to get to know each other and share ideas
4. Submits a final report (host narrative, final agenda, cost share form, articles, etc.) and the
Expense Reimbursement Report/Request Form with corresponding materials to Rotary (both
submitted by a host coordinator)
Delegates and their American hosts and presenters often stay in touch and collaborate after the visit.
WHO ARE THE OPEN WORLD PARTICIPANTS?
The group of participants includes five delegates and one facilitator. Delegates are young professionals
(aged 23-35 and for some delegations 23-30) from Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Russia,
Serbia, Tajikistan, and Ukraine. Delegates are civic leaders in the fields of health, economics,
environment, education, business, local government, law, journalism, NGOs (nongovernmental

For years, Rotary's commitment to Service Above Self has been channeled through the Avenues of Service, which form the foundation of club activity. To get started on a project, think broadly about how your club and its members could contribute within each avenue.

Club Service

Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the smooth functioning of Rotary clubs. Learn about effective club service in Membership and Training.

Vocational Service

Vocational Service involves club members serving others through their professions and aspiring to high ethical standards. Rotarians, as business leaders, share skills and expertise through their vocations, and they inspire others in the process. Learn more.

Community Service

Community Service is the opportunity  Rotary clubs have to implement club projects and activities that improve life in the local community.
Learn more about community service and assessing your community.

International Service

International Service encompasses efforts to expand Rotary's humanitarian reach around the world and to promote world understanding and peace. It includes everything from contributing to PolioPlus to helping Rotary Youth Exchange students adjust to their host countries.

Learn more about participating in World Community Service.

Youth Services

New Generations Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities such as RYLA, Rotaract and Interact club service projects, and creating international understanding with Rotary Youth Exchange.

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...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
The Rotarian Conversation with Ban Ki-moon
One of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s earliest memories is of fleeing with his family into the mountains during the Korean War, his village burning behind him. His father and grandfather had to forage for food in the woods; his mother gave birth to his siblings away from anything remotely resembling a health facility. “I have known hunger,” he says. “I have known war, and I have known what it means to be forced to flee conflict.” The soldiers who came to their rescue were flying the blue flag of the United Nations. The UN provided them with food and their schools with books....
Culture: Life in the bike lane
Like a lot of us, I spent much of my childhood riding bikes, but fell out of the habit for a while. Forty years. Then my wife and I moved to New York, where cyclists risk their necks in a daily Thunderdome of cabs, police cars, firetrucks, double-decker buses, messengers on motorbikes, and delivery trucks backing around corners at 20 miles an hour. Not for me! At least not until my 50th birthday, when my metabolic furnace flamed out. Calories started going directly from beer bottle to beer belly. It was time to start exercising. Either that or give up Samuel Adams, and I couldn’t do that to...
