|Rotarian excursion to Lake Orta (lago d'Orta)||Posted by Ekkart Zimmermann||on Mar 12, 2011||
To strengthen ties to our partner club in Milano and to escape vanity and massive rainfall at home an (almost) mighty dozen of fellow rotarians crossed the Alpes in diverse routes. When in Milan, these humble ambassadors were succinctly guided through the Ambrosian library (being strongly impressed, e.g., by scripts such as an illustration of the Iliad fifteen-hundred years old, dozens of Leonardo's drawings and his portrait of a musician) and well-received, with the first course of the dinner being served about entering the club restaurant (Hilton Tucherpark be aware!) so that all had the stamina to listen to the welcome talks and a lecture of one of our Italian friends sparing us only one or two little details of the 19th world exhibition in Milan.
The next day in the morning was left to human allotria or high culture (e.g. Leonardo's last supper: the preregistration rules give you a high probability to receive a return ticket. - go there before your own l.s.!) and in the afternoon for a wonderful reception and meal in Sacro Monte near San Julia d'Orta. The park struck one as the gral, the Arcadia, the German Weimar cultural classical heroes were longing for.
A short walk (downhill) helped to explore this wonderful spot where friend Peter Schulz von Siemens generously invited everyone to his own arcadia on a small island.
In short, a highly enriching excursion, only shortly interrupted by a rainy thunderstorm our best friend for months now.

In the end despite the very warm temeratures almost full presence and a wonderful evening for all.
Immediate Past President Peter Llewellyn-Davies started the meeting as usual and held his parting speech.

|New York Marathon 2011 - Running 26.2 miles to save lives!||Posted by Daniele Schiuma||
Dear Fellow Rotarians and Friends,
According to my commitment to Rotary's motto "Service above Self" on November 6, 2011 I participated at the NY Marathon 2011 in order to raise funds for supporting several humanitarian projects such as
(a) Rotary's PolioPlus initiative to eradicate poliomyelitis across the world
as well as specific programs of our partner club Rotary Club New York in view of
(b) serving pediatric cancer patients,
(c) providing open heart surgery to children from countries where such care is unavailable, and
(d) supporting humanitarian programs in New York City and beyond through the NY Rotary Foundation.
Not only I crossed the finish line in Central Park after 3h55m31s, but also was able to fundraise over 5000 US$ for the above projects.
Thank you very much to all my supporters!
YiR, Daniele Schiuma
