President's Message
Sharon Taylor
 
It is hard to believe that my year as President is coming to a close. It has been a privilege and an honor to have served as your President during the 2016-17 Rotary Year.
I have been so fortunate to have had such a great team working with me. Together we have conducted Keiki Vision, given out dictionaries, supported our Veterans, marshaled parades, wa-tered trees, provided Christmas for disadvantaged Keiki, sup-ported art and drama for keiki, held a very successful Valentine Fund Raising event, bought and installed new computers and equipment for the Kona Literacy Center, weeded and planted at the Veteran's Cemetery,honored an awesome volunteer in our community, awarded over $20,000.00 in scholarships to graduating students at Konawaena High School, supported 2 In-ternational Projects and have grown our club by 6 new members.
 
But, that is not all. We have also have had a lot of fun with several social times with our own members and members of our sister Clubs here in West Hawaii and with our sister club from Mizusawa, Japan.

Perhaps the highlight of the year was the celebration of our 50th Anniversary with a Gala dinner and 2 Jubilee Community Projects that will benefit our community for years to come.

On July 2 at 5pm at the VFW in Kona we will celebrate our year with our friends from the Rotary Club of Kona Sunrise. I hope you all will join me as I pass the gavel to your new President, Laura Kniffin. I know Laura and her team have lots of great things planned for another awesome year for the Rotary Club of Kona Mauka.

Mahalo nui loa to all.

You have worked so hard to make our community a better place.

Individually we are a drop, together we are an ocean.

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,...
