From DG Alex in regards to the Haiti earthquake:  In checking the RI Website there is a DAF set up with TRF and you can find a link to information about it on both www.rotary.org and www.7020.org.  They have established a Rotary NGO in Haiti and have Rotarians on the ground to assure that money and supplies are used as intended.

    PDG Richard McCombe has spearheaded its efforts and his email is rmccombe@gussiemae.org

    It is the feeling that money, food, water and ShelterBoxes are in immediate demand to aid in this disaster.  I appreciate all your clubs are doing to help our friends in Haiti.

 

ยท        January is Celebrate Rotary Awareness Month .  By training members on Rotary history, programs, or how to raise awareness of your club's projects among your community you can raise club members awareness of Rotary this month.   Or, ask members to share a personal story or experience that they have had because of Rotary. Every Rotarian has a Rotary story that can be educational and inspiring. The new year is a good opportunity to renew inspiration for the rest of the Rotary year.
