„The seven last words of our Saviour on the Cross“ had been composed by Joseph Haydn for orchestra, string quartett and also as an oratorium. Addidionally a version for piano had been authorized by Haydn.
In contrast to the original Yaara Tal combined the seven sonatas by Haydn with a very intersting selection out of Arnold Schönberg´s „6 small piano-pieces“ op. 19 and Bela Bartok´s „Dawn“ with specific accents to the  melancholy passion-music.

Dear Fellow Rotarians,

We’re delighted to report that [today] Nigeria has passed one year with no new cases of the wild poliovirus.

This is the longest the country has ever gone without a case of polio and a critical step on the path toward a polio-free Africa. We’ve come a long way since the bleak years when the virus reached its peak. It was only a decade ago that polio struck 12,631 people in Africa- three quarters of all cases in the world.

To mark the end of the District 1840, District Governor Joachim Heintz organised a special conferee this weekend, starting with an entertaining evening event in the Bayerischer Hof with music, humour and an excellent array of speakers. The next day was focussed an more topical rotarian issues.

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.

A bunch of Rotarians paid their respects to the End Polio Now train visiting Munich Station twice on Saturday.

Early riser Caroling Lindenbeck decided to don her running shoes and the shirt that helped her complete the Munich marathon for Polio in 2010, meeting District governor Bulla at 7.30 am.

Other Rotarians from our club including president Claas Kohl and family as well as past presidents Frank Sehr and Peter Llewellyn-Davies and Rotaract past president Patrick Hattenbach met up with the train on platform 13 and District Governor Michael Bulla. Michael had been spending the trip handing out brochures to alert the public of the neccesity to continue supporting this deadly disease.

The fundraising activities for the new Hauner Clinic in Munich have taken a huge step forward.

On Friday, 18 October 2013 eight Rotary Clubs and one Rotaract Club signed a new Charter for the Rotary 4 Hauner fundraising activities.

The Rotary and Rotaract Clubs in the Munich area are joining forces to create a critical mass to invest in a ward or a dedicated area of the Hauner Clinic which should be named in honour of the Rotary clubs involved.

Our district governor Michael Bulla visits our club. Since the old district 1840 was split at the beginning of the rotarian year Michael has 51 clubs to visit within his term. The new district 1842 still represents a lot of clubs but thankfully much less than the previous 102 clubs in the old district.

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.
Daniele has been finished the New York Marathon

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

Perfect Attendance. It's a challenging goal for a Rotarian to attend every week, even for one year. But many clubs count in their membership a Rotarian who has amassed multiple years, sometimes 50 or more, of perfect attendance.
