Twins Days will be Aug 5th, 6th and 7th this year.
 
The Rotary Club of Twinsburg will be serving a hotdog dinner to the arriving twins and their families on Aug 6th from 4pm to 8pm at the Twinsburg High School.  This is a ongoing community service project.

In 1976, a small group of dedicated people planning Twinsburg’s participation in the bicentennial celebration that year decided to set aside one day for twins. The Twins Day Festival started with a flag raising and dedication of the Wilcox Monument on the square and the dedication of the first picnic shelter at Glenn Chamberlin Park.  The following year, determined not to let the idea die, a committee went into action, and made the second Twins Day happen. There were food booths that year operated by local service organizations wanting to raise funds for their treasuries, a band concert talent show, a Square Dance Exhibition and a bike-and-buggy parade for children 12 years and younger. With 38 sets of twins who attended that second year we were on our way.
 
The past 43 festivals have seen over 77,000 sets of twins and multiples have attended, national and international media coverage, a visiting delegation of nine sets of twins from the Soviet Union, as well as on site research by companies and universities. The Twins Days Festival is recorded as the Largest Annual Gathering of Twins in the World by the Guinness Book of World Records.

This month is Rotary’s Membership and Extension Month, and while we are reaching the end of the month, I felt that we should all think about what this means. Membership and Extension is an ongoing part of being a Rotarian so we do not confine ourselves to making an effort on membership during August only. But was does having more members really mean?

     • Is it to make the President look good?
     • Is it to beat other clubs by having the most members?
     • Is it to “Enrich your life by meeting people from different backgrounds”

The first two are probably the end result of having a strong membership, but not the reason. The third one is a quote from Rotarian Andro Bottse from the Rotary club of Amsterdam-Arena. This is a very poignant message about the opportunities that exist within our organization; this is not just about the international opportunities but also about what exists within our own community.  Twinsburg is a richly diverse city with people from many cultures and walks of life who could make great Rotarians.

Rotary International has a statement on diversity; Rotary International recognizes the value of diversity within individual clubs. Rotary encourages clubs to assess those in their communities who are eligible for membership, under existing membership guidelines, and to endeavor to include the appropriate range of individuals in their clubs. A club that reflects its community with regard to professional and business classification, gender, age, religion and ethnicity is a club with the key to the future.

Remember - "Make A Difference" - when you share with your acquaintances and invite them to serve with you in Rotary!

Special Days:
12 International Youth Day (NewGens)

RI president-elect announces 2022-23 presidential theme. Rotary International President-elect Jennifer Jones wants members to imagine the possibilities in the change they can make to transform the world. Jones, a member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland, Ontario, Canada, revealed the 2022-23 presidential theme, Imagine Rotary, as she urged people to dream big and harness their connections and the power of Rotary to turn those dreams into reality. “Imagine, a world that deserves our best,” Jones told incoming district governors on 20 January, “where we get up each day knowing that we can make a difference.”
 
Jennifer Jones will be making history on 1 July by becoming Rotary’s first female president.
