Lynn Rotary at My Brother's Table

Here is a photo of the Lynn Rotarians and guests who recently helped serve a meal at My Brother's Table.  Many thanks to those who came out for the night and helped.  It was a successful night and many folks were fed.

Landscaping Service Project

Lynn Rotarians recently joined fellow Rotarians from Cambridge and Woburn to do landscaping at the Great Hills project of the Lynn Shelter Association.  The landscaping service project was organized as a service opportunity of the District 7930 Annual Conference.
 
 
 

 

 
 

Donate Professional Attire to “Succeed in Style”

The Rotary Club of Lynn will be collecting professional attire for men and women, in support of the Lynn Shelter Association’s program called “Succeed in Style”.  This program provides clothing to Shelter clients who need professional attire as they apply for jobs or begin work.  The Club is going to support that program by collecting professional attire to donate to the Association at our meeting of June 22, 2017. 
 
Members and friends are urged to bring donated clothing to the June 22 meeting so that the clothing can be sorted by type and size.  Donated items should be clean, current fashion, and in good condition.   Please provide the clothing on hangers for ease of handling.  Professional clothing is accepted as well as close toed shoes in good condition.  Members are urged to pick up donations from friends and bring them to the meeting.

Lynn Rotary Awards Another Great Group of 8th Grade Students

Recently the Rotary Club of Lynn held its Eighth Grade Recognition Program at the Porthole Restaurant. The program has been a mainstay on the Lynn Club calendar for over a decade and is underwritten by Riverworks Credit Union.  The awards ceremony is held several times a year and presents awards to middle school students who have overcome something in their life, and who are doing well in school.  Students, teachers, and families are invited to a great luncheon where letters of recommendation from teachers are read aloud in honor of each student.  Each student is then given an award citation, a letter of commendation, a gift certificate, and a cash award toward a savings account.  These award ceremonies are very popular with students, families, teachers, and among Rotarians too.  The Lynn Rotary Club is greatly appreciative of Riverworks Credit Union in their support of the program.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
