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.

Seven Simple Steps for Recruitment Success   

Many clubs find it to be a challenge to recruit new members and don't realize the power of selling. Not comfortable with sales? Few people are, but the truth is that every day you unconsciously persuade people and sell your perspective idea by showing what's in it for them. 

To apply the same principles and persuasion techniques you use daily, simply follow these seven simple steps and you will be well on your way to successfully increasing membership: 

1. Be prepared.  

2.Take advantage of a wealth of information on benefits 

3.Reflect on the primary reason you first joined, and why you continue membership.  

4.Listen to prospects - uncover the objections.  

5.Be enthusiastic, and don't let objections throw you. 

6.Follow up with your prospect.  

7.Practice these steps and don't get discouraged.  


Past RI President Cliff Dochterman 
Rotary Foundation Thought



This week’s Rotary Foundation Thought is about Peace.

"A skeptic might ask: 'How can Rotary be a real force for peace? It has no jurisdictional power. It is not a religion. It has no army or tanks, and it insists on being nonpolitical.' Such a viewpoint looks at peace as something that can be ordered or militarily enforced, as if it is only the responsibility of governments. Rotary has always approached peacemaking systematically — it has sought to break down the barriers that cause people to point fingers at one another. By trying to understand peoples‘ points of view and reaching across lines of race, religion, and culture to become partners in service to all mankind, tensions are reduced and friendships are increased. Humanitarian aid has been Rotary‘s answer to hunger, sickness, illiteracy, and economic disaster — the seeds of conflict." — From A Century of Service: The Story of Rotary International by David C. Forward


The ABC's of Rotary


World Community Service

World Community Service (WCS) is the Rotary program by which a club or district in one country provides humanitarian assistance to a project of a club in another country. Typically, the aid goes to a developing community where the Rotary project will help raise the standard of living and the quality of life. The ultimate object of World Community Service is to build goodwill and understanding among peoples of the world.

One important way to find a club in some other part of the world that needs help on a worthy project is to use the WCS Projects Exchange, a list of hundreds of worthy activities in developing areas that is published semiannually. The exchange list is maintained at the RI Secretariat in Evanston and is readily available upon request. It outlines projects, provides estimated costs, and gives names of the appropriate contacts. The WCS Projects Exchange list and the
database, which is updated monthly, are accessible via the RI Web site at

Clubs seeking help with a humanitarian project may register their needs, and clubs seeking to assist a World Community Service project may easily review the list of needs registered in the Projects Exchange. Thus, the exchange provides a practical way to link needs with resources.

Every Rotary club is urged to undertake a new World Community Service project each year. The WCS Projects Exchange list is an excellent tool to find a real need, a project description, and cooperating club in a developing area. The
job then is to go to work” to complete the project, and at the same time build bridges of friend ship and world understanding.

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.”
