By Rotary Service and Engagement Staff

Throughout the month of June, we’ve been honoring Rotary Fellowships Month by sharing exciting stories from various Rotary Fellowships. Although fellowships range in interest, they all find ways to incorporate their passions into service initiatives in various forms. Fellowships enhance the Rotary experience by allowing members to make friends and connections outside of their clubs, and utilize these connections to address community needs. Below are just a few examples of how Rotary Fellowships are making a difference:

  • The International Fellowship of Scouting Rotarians recognizes youth with superior scouting and guiding skills in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom through their Youth Services Award. The group also encourages youth involvement in community projects. Recently, members from the Rotary Club of Waco in Texas, USA, worked with local Boy Scouts to clear and improve trails at their local arboretum. The Fellowship also recognizes Rotarians and Rotaractors for their dedicated service to scouting and Rotary through the Cliff Dochterman Award, named after RI President Cliff Dochterman (1992-93), a devoted scouter.
  • Members of the International Fellowship of Birdwatching Rotarians (IFBR) gather annually for a local bird walk through the city hosting the Rotary Convention. During the 2016 Convention, Robert Newlin, author of Korea Through Her Birds, joined the group as they toured Shirip University in Seoul, South Korea. At the end of the walk, IFBR presented Newlin with a US$100 donation which aided his efforts to rescue and rehabilitate endangered waterbirds, shorebirds, and seabirds. Read more about the group’s activities.
  • The International Travel and Hosting Fellowship (ITHF) enables Rotarians and Rotaractors to enrich their travel experiences through cultural exchanges by visiting other ITHF members during the course of their travels. Tilak Thapa Magar was visiting the United States from Nepal when he was hosted by fellow ITHF member, Bob Artis. Read how his experience strengthened his appreciation for Rotary.
  • The Rotarian Jazz Fellowship organized an International Jazz ’n’ Youth Exchange in northern Germany where 120 kids took part in the camp—60 from Germany and 60 from the USA. The group also organizes concerts to raise funds supporting young aspiring jazz musicians.
  • The International Fellowship of Rowing Rotarians is organizing rowing against cancer initiatives focused on raising awareness within their local communities through rowing trips.

There are currently over 70 Rotary fellowships! If your recreational or vocational interest isn’t represented by Rotary’s current Fellowships, contact us for information on starting a new group! Five new groups were recognized during the 2016-17 Rotary year:

Doug is working hard on the Calendar Project which promises to become a major fundraiser.  In order to be a success we all need to get advertisers and line up sales for the calendar!


Today our Flag salute was led by Carlos Pena, our Invocation given by Pastor Stephen Sloat and the 4 Way Test led by Bob Scheck.
President Ernesto introduced our own Joe Glowitz for a "CRAFT TALK".   Joe brought us up to date on the progress of the REQUA Project, the future "Downtown Indio" project.  We learned about FOG!
We learned how in 2016 the Valley Sanitary District turned to the sun as an alternative energy source for cleaner and cheaper electricity. This 20 year power purchase  is equivalent to powering 3000+ homes or use of 684 gallons of water!

Our program was introduced by President Ernesto and featured Lisa Slam, Event manager of the Palm Springs Air Museum.
CNN reports that the Palm Springs Air Museum is one of the 14 best in the world!  Over 55 aircraft are possessed by the museum.  The Major General Kenneth P. Miles Hangar is being built to memorialize the soldiers that fought in Korea and Vietnam.
 In the spirit of giving, the museum is asking you purchase a brick to honor the patriot in your life. The bricks provide a lasting legacy, and ensure that these heroes are never forgotten.
The Palms Springs Air Museum is located at 745 N. Gene Autry Trail, Pam Springs, CA 92262 phone  (760) 778-6262
