District 7210 News & Updates
We all knew this wonderful Rotarian as "the Polio Plus Lady", but there was much, much more to our Bunnee. Bernice, “Bunnee” Webb was born September 16, 1927 to Jeanette and Theodore Nemoy and raised in the Bronx.  Bernice attended Hunter College and became an Early Childhood Teacher. Bernice spent her entire career with the NYC Board of Education in the Bronx as a Teacher, Assistant Principal, and Principal. She was named the Principal of a new school in the Bronx, PS 160X, in the early 1970’s and remained as its Principal until she retired. Bernice was an advocate for children throughout her career never being afraid to stand up and speak for them. Bernice was also a truly terrific Rotarian and Humanitarian. Her support and promotion for the mission of Rotary International, a worldwide service organization, was demonstrated by her involvement in many of Rotary’s initiatives, especially the elimination of polio throughout the world. Bernice served as the District Governor for the Hudson Valley Rotarians in 2000-2001. She was 89 years old, and left a lasting positive impression on all who crossed her path. Bernice loved to entertain family and friends in her home with good food and much good humor. Bernice’s love of country and love of her Jewish background were always evident. Bernice is survived by her loving sister Millicent, Mickie, Maurer. Graveside services will be held Tuesday May 30, 2017, 1:00PM at Beth EL Cemetery, 735 Forest Avenue, Paramus, New Jersey. Memorial contributions may be made in Bernice’s memory to the Rotary Foundation for the Eradication of Polio.
We Celebrated Our 2016-17 Rotary Year, and Planned for 2017-18 and Beyond!
Many of you spent this past weekend both planning and celebrating how we Do GOOD & Have FUN at our District Conference & District Assembly, each at the magnificent Mohonk Mountain House. As many of you who were there have shared with me, and on social media, it is tough to decide which was most impressive; the incredible presentations by our own members as well as our guests, the majestic beauty of the venue, the nearly endless list of Clubs and individuals who were honored for their many accomplishments thus far this year, the spectacular food on which we dined, or the awe inspiring history of the very room in which we met, where world leaders have been meeting to discuss and resolve significant humanitarian issues since 1895. My personal gratitude goes out to ALL involved (and there were MANY), but in particular I want to thank Conference Chair Cindie Kish, Conference Registrar Sue Doyle, DGE Jim Damiani, DGN Chrissy Giangrasso, PDG Bill Bassett & PDG Drew Kessler.

“Let’s Start a Conversation”

 
Substance Abuse Disorder and Addiction is plaguing our communities. One area of focus for Rotary is Disease Prevention & Treatment. There continues to be a stigma surrounding abuse and addiction and many people believe that “It can’t happen to me.”
 
Addiction can happen to anyone, any family, at any time.
 
The Presidents of Region 3 have teamed up to develop a template for you with the goal of raising addiction and recovery awareness in your club and in your community. I encourage you to join me and participate in the District 7210 Substance Abuse Awareness Month in March.
 
Dear Club Presidents:
 
I am writing to you to remind you that you should be recruiting applicants for the ROTARY WORLD PEACE FELLOWSHIP.  Please mention to your membership that this opportunity exists.  Ask them to share this concept with their contacts in the community.  I am sure that we can find good qualified candidates if all Rotarians spread the word about PEACE FELLOWSHIPS.
 
The Rotary Peace Fellowship is provided to individuals to attend one of the six Rotary Peace Centers for International Studies in Peace and Conflict Resolution around the world.  All expenses related to this fellowship ... view full letter
