History of League Park 
 
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.

The Sponsor of a New Member

The bylaws of Rotary clearly outline the procedure for proposing someone for Rotary club membership. The “proposer” or sponsor is the key person in the growth and advancement of Rotary. Without a sponsor, an individual will never have the opportunity to become a Rotarian.  Individuals must be asked to join Rotary; thus, it is every member’s responsibility to identify and invite prospective members.  The task of the sponsor should not end merely by submitting a name to the club secretary or membership committee. Rotary has not established formal responsibilities for sponsors; however, these procedures are recommended in many clubs.  The sponsor should
1. Invite a prospective member to several meetings prior to proposing the individual for membership
2. Accompany the prospective new member to one or more orientation/informational meetings
3. Introduce the new member to other club members each week for the first month
4. Encourage the new member to become involved in any club service projects underway
5. Invite the new member to attend meetings of the Interact or Rotaract clubs sponsored by the club
6. Provide opportunities for the new member to get involved in international program efforts, such as Group Study Exchange or Youth Exchange
7. Invite the new member to accompany the sponsor to neighboring clubs for the first make-up meeting to learn the process and observe the spirit of friendship
8. Ask the new member and spouse to accompany the sponsor to the club’s social activities, dinners, or other special occasions
9. Urge the new member and spouse to attend the district conference with the sponsor
10. Serve as a special friend to assure that the new member becomes an active Rotarian
 
When a new member becomes involved and connected, both Rotary and the new member become stronger.

Rotary Foundation Thought

 


 

This week’s Rotary Foundation Thought is about Foundation programs.

Assistant RRFC Harry Henderson says: "The Rotary Foundation has allowed me to be part of things that I never could have done without the help of Rotary. The two weeks I spent in volunteer service with District 3160 in India certainly changed my life. Rotary gave me the chance to help provide a mobile dental clinic and to actually use it to provide dental care. Without the help of our Rotary Foundation, a small town dentist from Southern Illinois like myself could never have had this opportunity. Our Rotary Foundation cannot only change the lives of those we help, but it can also change the lives of Rotarians."

The ABC's of Rotary
 
 

 

Every Rotarian an Example to Youth

In 1949, the RI Board adopted the slogan Every Rotarian an Example to Youth as an expression of commitment to children and youth in each community in which Rotary clubs exist. Serving young people has long been an important part of the Rotary program.
 
Youth service projects take many forms around the world. Rotarians sponsor Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, athletic teams, centers for disabled children, school safety patrols, summer camps, orphanages, recreation areas, safe driving clinics, county fairs, child-care centers, and children’s hospitals. Many clubs provide vocational counseling, establish youth employment programs, and promote use of The 4Way Test. Increasingly, drug/alcohol abuse prevention and AIDS awareness projects are being supported by Rotarians.
 
In every instance, Rotarians have an opportunity to be role models and mentors for the young people of their community. One learns to serve by observing others. As our youth grow to become adult leaders, it is hoped each will achieve that same desire and spirit to serve future generations.
 
The slogan accepted over 60 years ago is just as vital today.

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.”
