What's Rotary?

Rotary is an international membership organization made up of people who share a passion for and commitment to enhancing communities and improving lives across the world. Rotary clubs exist in almost every country. Our members change lives locally and connect with other clubs to work on international projects that address today’s most pressing challenges. Being a member is an opportunity to take action and make a difference, and it brings personal rewards and lifelong friendships in the process.

Rotary was founded on principles that remain at the heart of the organization today. These principles reflect our core values — integrity, diversity, service, leadership, and fellowship, or friendship.

                        July:  BRING A FRIEND TO ROTARY Month

July 2016 was recognized by Rotary District 5870 as “Bring a Friend to Rotary Month.” Because District 5870 and Rotary International haven't officially designated a theme for July 2017 (even though the above graphic suggests that it might actually be "New Leadership Month"), last year's theme seems appropriate and important enough to repeat. One of Rotary's major priorities is membership growth, extension, and retention. What would happen if every Rotarian brought a potential member to one of our meetings in July (or any month)? Remember, first-time guests of Rotarians eat free and I'll bet we can even afford another free lunch for a follow up visit, should there be one.

If we are going to increase our membership level, it is obvious that the best route to do that is to involve every Rotarian. Everyone surely has at least one friend! Exercise that friendship and let those friends learn about "Service above Self" and the fun of being a Rotarian!

  • Membership is EVERY ROTARIAN'S business.  Membership is too important to be delegated to just one or two ROTARIANS in our Club or even a small committee and, certainly, membership is too important to focus on it only one calendar month of the year. 
  • Membership in Rotary cannot be promoted by simply explaining to prospective members all of the rules, policies, procedures, and folklore about Rotary or The Rotary Foundation.  The hook is telling prospective new members WHY you are a ROTARIAN, why you have remained engaged in Rotary over the years, and why Rotary is important enough to you that you commit time, energy, and dollars.  Your story is a powerful tool that should be used.  
  • Our Club needs to be flexible and innovative in order to retain the members that we have as well as the new members we work so hard to get. "Being a friend" is certainly the first step toward improving retention!

Packaged Grants

A vocational training team sponsored by District 9110 in Nigeria traveled to Uganda through a packaged grant with Aga Khan University, a strategic partner working in the child and maternal health area of focus. The physician team leader and three nurse educators from Nigeria trained their Ugandan counterparts at the university’s School of Nursing and Midwifery in teaching practices that promote student learning and improve effectiveness in education. The training covered research techniques, the use of anatomical models, simulated classroom situations, and how to assess students’ attitudes through body language. Team members expanded the impact of the VTT by treating patients at a Rotary Foundation-sponsored health clinic and conducting a prenatal and health education clinic at the Mpigi Health Center, which serves about 120,000 people. 

Packaged grants are completely funded by The Rotary Foundation World Fund and the partner on the grant.

 


 

Arch C. Klumph, Well-rounded Citizen

This week’s Rotary Foundation Thought is about living a full and well-rounded life, as illustrated by the founder of our Foundation, Arch C. Klumph. From our archives: Arch had a great love of music. At age 18 he began to study the flute, and three years later he received a chair in the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra. He played with the orchestra for 14 years and was a lifelong sponsor of it. "My heart is in music and my head is in business," he said. Arch balanced his love of music and theater with his professional business and dreamed huge dreams beyond Cleveland to the theater of the world, with spectacular success. One of those dreams was The Rotary Foundation. 

Your contribution to The Rotary Foundation keeps Arch Klumph’s dream alive and fulfills the dreams of many people around the world who need our help.

In 2017-18, we’ll answer the question “What is Rotary?” with RI President-elect Ian H.S. Riseley’s theme, Rotary: Making a Difference. “Whether we’re building a new playground or a new school, improving medical care or sanitation, training conflict mediators or midwives, we know that the work we do will change people’s lives — in ways large and small — for the better.”

 

The heartland of America—from Montana to Texas—has people who give from the heart. This rich land still has people who are homeless, but Rotarians help build houses. This breadbasket of America still has people with food insecurities, but Rotarians serve in soup kitchens, pack backpacks, and stock food pantries. There are people who are abused, or abuse drugs and alcohol, but Rotarians work in shelters, and educate with awareness and treatment campaigns. Rotary Has Heart. Rotarians serve their communities
