August 11: District Update, AG John Barber
As I write this article I have visited fourteen District Rotary clubs, and met with most of their boards. Some larger clubs, some newer clubs. Some are in our major metropolitan areas, others are far flung into the smaller communities. But one commonality exists throughout all: all are excited to be Rotarians, and are eager to seize the opportunities they have to make a difference in 2017-18 in their communities and in the world. I applaud their rabid enthusiasm, and their acceptance of my District Governor challenge goals for the new year.

Subject: A personal thank you from ShelterBox USA
 
Dear Rotary Club of Georgetown,
 
I wanted to send a personal thank you to your club for making a gift to ShelterBox USA in the amount of $1000.
 
Your gift will allow ShelterBox, a Rotary International Project Partner, to assist families displaced by disasters and humanitarian crises worldwide. In essence, your gift will change the lives of disaster survivors in a positive way by giving them the necessary shelter, warmth and dignity to rebuild.
 
As you know, RI President, K.R. Ravindran chose Be a Gift to the World as his theme for 2015-16. He is urging Rotary members to give their talents, expertise, and leadership to improve lives in communities across the globe. "Through Rotary, we can take these gifts and make a genuine difference in the lives of others and in our world."
 
Your gift to ShelterBox has done exactly that! Below my signature lies a press release that you can use in your community to promote your club's efforts at Being a Gift to the World. This is an important step to boosting membership and shares the values of Rotary with others.
 
Please consider adding a quote from a representative in your club and sending it to your local newspaper or online media source.
 
You may be interested in asking a member of your club to become a point person for ShelterBox which will help your club members stay informed on ShelterBox deployments. If you have someone in mind or if someone already is the point person for ShelterBox, ask them to register at our website at www.shelterboxusa.org/volunteer.
 
Thank you again.
 
Yours in Rotary Service,

Sarah Shelton

The Rotary Club of Georgetown donates $5,000 to the Caring Place
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
 The Rotary Club of Georgetown is excited to announce the donation of $5,000 to the Caring Place for the purchase of a walk-in refrigerator.
 
Through its Food Pantry program, The Caring Place provides a seven day supply of emergency food to eligible individuals and families (about 30 lbs. of food per person) once a month.  This supply of food, until recently, has primarily been composed of a variety non-perishable food items.  However, over the past year, the need to store perishable items has become an increasing critical need of The Caring Place.  Not only have fresh food donations from community gardens increased, but through a new partnership with the Georgetown Walmart, The Caring Place receives large quantities of perishable items twice a week.  Through the Rotary Club of Georgetown’s donation, the new walk-in refrigerator will allow The Caring Place to store these fresh produce and other perishable items so that more individuals and families have access to these items that are part of a healthy diet
 
In 2014, The Caring Place distributed 501,720 pounds of food to 16,724 individuals through its Food Pantry program, a 30% increase from the previous year. The Caring Place expects the number of people they serve through the program to continue to grow in 2015.  The walk-in refrigerator will have a significant impact on The Caring Place’s ability to serve those in need.
 
Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. In more than 160 countries worldwide, approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 30,000 Rotary clubs.
