April is Maternal and Child Health month

Rotary makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger. We expand access to quality care, so mothers and children everywhere can have the same opportunities for a healthy future. An estimated 5.9 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation — all of which can be prevented.

2 World Autism Awareness Day: (DPT)
4 UN International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action (PCPR)
7 UN World Health Day (DPT)

Membership Minute




Membership Growth: Stay Above the Curve

 The law of diminishing returns is that a "success" curve flattens out at the top. Regardless of the amount of extra work you put in, you just can't expect to get the same proportionate result. But have you ever thought about the declining curve? When an undertaking begins to slip over the edge, you will find the curve tends to plunge. The further along you go, the steeper the slope and the harder the recovery.
So, be warned! If your club's membership remains at a low level, you may be on the beginning of such a curve. If it's declining, you're on the slippery slope. Don't ignore it or delay your plan to rectify it. There's no time like the present to implement a plan. Act rather than react and you'll get better results!
Membership growth is not a long-range goal. It's an immediate need! It's known that people will join a club because they have a keen interest in what it stands for and how it will benefit them. Generally, this includes community involvement and building relationships. Consequently, they will leave the club if they fail to achieve this purpose. Basically, the reconstruction process involves three simple factors: an analysis of the problems impeding your club, the establishment of goals and improvement strategies, and sheer effort.

Rotary Foundation Thought



This week’s Rotary Foundation Thought is about Rotary Peace Fellows.

Former Rotary Peace Fellow Arik Gutler-Ofir, who studied at the University of Queensland, Australia, organized a War, Peace, and Social Justice Festival in Israel. Half of the plays were in Arabic, half in Hebrew. One of Gutler-Ofir‘s hopes is that audience members came away knowing they shared concerns other than conflict. About 700 people attended the festival, which showcased nine plays over five days.


The ABC's of Rotary


Functional Literacy Program

It has been estimated that a billion people — one-sixth of the world’s population are unable to read. Illiteracy among adults and children is a global concern in highly industrialized nations and in developing countries.
The tragedy of illiteracy is that those who cannot read are denied personal independence and become victims of unscrupulous manipulation, poverty, and the loss of human dignity. Illiteracy is demeaning. It is a major obstacle for economic, political, social, and personal development and a barrier to international under standing, cooperation, and peace in the world.
Many Rotary clubs are thoughtfully surveying the needs of their community for literacy training. Some clubs provide basic books for teaching reading. Others establish and support reading and language clinics, provide volunteer tutorial assistance, and purchase reading materials. Rotarians can play a vitally important part in their community and in developing countries by promoting projects to open opportunities that come from the ability to read. For example, Australian Rotarians developed Lighthouses for Literacy projects in four schools in Thailand. This innovative teaching method proved so successful that the Thai government adopted it for all the nation’s schools. Other Rotary clubs have used this model to develop literacy projects in Bangladesh, South Africa, Brazil, and other countries.

Be The Inspiration!

Rotary International President-elect Barry Rassin laid out his vision for the future of the organization on Sunday, calling on leaders to work for a sustainable future and to inspire Rotarians and the community at large.

Rassin, a member of the Rotary Club of East Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas, unveiled the 2018-19 presidential theme, Be the Inspiration, to incoming district governors at Rotary’s International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA. “I want you to inspire in your clubs, your Rotarians, that desire for something greater. The drive to do more, to be more, to create something that will live beyond each of us.”
