Nine gathered at Aromas last Thursday. A beautiful Spring morning and lots of great conversation!
 
 
A very successful virtual conference for Australia and New Zealand was held over the weekend of 19th & 20th September.  Over 1200 people Zoomed in to attend the conference which, because of COVID, replaced the conference which was planned to be held in Alice Springs on the same weekend.
 
An impressive program of world-class speakers, including RI President Nominee, Jennifer Jones (who will be the first female world president of Rotary in 2022-23) inspired and informed attendees.   Other speakers included the 2020-21 Rotary International President, Holder Knaack, Past RI President, Ian Riseley, and incoming RI Director Jessie Harmon.  A very stimulating address was given by past RI Director from New Zealand, Stuart Heal who spoke on "The Winds of Change" outlining his thoughts on the changes that, he believes, need to happen within Rotary if we are to survive for another 100 years.
 
The conference was recorded and sessions will be available shortly on the Zone 8 website.

THE SIR CLEM RENOUF POLIO APPEAL
TO DRIVE FUND RAISING IN 2020/21
 
The June 11 passing of Rotary International’s Polio icon Sir Clem Renouf has inspired a group of ANZO Rotary leaders to launch the Sir Clem Renouf Polio Appeal in 2020/21.
 
Sir Clem was Australia’s second President of Rotary International in 1978/79 and two of the subsequent RI Presidents Bill Boyd of New Zealand (2006/07) and Ian Riseley (2017/18) – supported by RI Past Director Noel Trevaskis and RI Director Elect Jessie Harman - recently agreed to commemorate the great man’s passing with a signifcant fund raising campaign. It aims to secure funds in support of Clem’s legacy, the END POLIO NOW campaign.
 
The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 put a hold on the Polio eradication campaign which is just picking up momentum again now. Pakistan recommenced its door to door immunisation campaign last month.
 
Fund raising for Polio became particularly difficult at the end of the last Rotary year and the END POLIO NOW campaign just managed to raise the US$50m necessary to qualify for the full Gates Foundation 2:1 subsidy of US$100m.
 
The senior leaders team driving the Sir Clem Renouf Polio Appeal includes all Regional Rotary Foundation coordinators and their assistants who will liaise with all District Governors for support across New Zealand and Australia.
 
Rob Byrne at the RI South Pacific & Philippines office in Parramatta has set up a ‘how to donate’ document that will be delivered directly to all Rotary Clubs.

Rotary’s World Polio Month of October is fast approaching with World Polio Day scheduled for Saturday, October 24, and District Governors are urged to encourage ALL clubs to take part in a special event for the Sir Clem Renouf Polio Appeal –
  • Being mindful of likely ongoing COVID restrictions, there is strong support for clubs to hold a ‘virtual’ dinner with members donating their normal meal fee to the campaign. Such action will also address the challenge of increasing ‘personal’ donations towards the Polio campaign.
  • Brief video messages from senior leaders Bill Boyd, Ian Riseley, Noel Trevaskis and Jessie Harman are available from RDU General Manager Gay Kiddle for program content at such ‘virtual’ dinners.
  • However, there is a myriad of innovative projects across Rotary’s Zone 8 region planned for Australia and New Zealand in October and the income can all be channelled towards Polio via the Sir Clem Renouf Appeal –
  • Ride the Train for Polio – Friday, October 23 – with allowances for COVID-19.
  • Various ‘walk for polio’ projects around Australia and New Zealand
  •  Lawn Bowls for Polio – club challenges to support President Holger Knaack’s ‘club collaboration’ goal, whilst observing COVID requirements.

Rotary congratulates African region on becoming wild poliovirus-free

FIVE OUT OF SIX WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION REGIONS ARE NOW WILD POLIO-FREE

EVANSTON, Ill. (June 23, 2020) — Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) are proud to announce an historic public health achievement as the World Health Organization’s African region is now certified wild poliovirus-free.
 
The milestone comes four years after Nigeria – the last polio-endemic country in Africa – recorded its final case of wild poliovirus following decades of effort from GPEI partners, local and national leaders, and health workers throughout the African region. Over the course of the effort, 9 billion doses of oral polio vaccine have been administered, hundreds of millions of children have been immunized, and 1.8 million cases of wild poliovirus have been averted throughout the region.
Today’s announcement is in part a result of the cumulative actions of Rotary and its members, who have contributed nearly US$890 million—and countless volunteer hours—to eliminate polio in the African region.
 
“In the face of a pandemic, the world has had very little good news to celebrate in global health this year, and the challenges ahead are formidable,” said Rotary International President Holger Knaack. “That is why we must recognize this great achievement and commend all of the people who played important roles in eradicating wild polio in the African region. It took tremendous effort and partnership over many years. I’m particularly grateful for the Rotary members throughout Africa and around the world who have dedicated themselves to making polio a disease of the past.”
 
The road to the African region’s wild poliovirus-free certification has been paved by the dedication of health workers—mainly women—who traveled by every form of transportation imaginable to reach children with the polio vaccine; those who found solutions for reaching children in regions rife with conflict and insecurity; those leading surveillance activities to test cases of paralysis and check sewage for the virus, and the leadership of all 47 countries in the African region.
 
Polio vaccination efforts throughout the African region must continue, and routine immunization must be strengthened to keep immunity levels high so the wild poliovirus does not return and to protect children against rare occurrences of circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus. The wild virus continues to circulate in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and as long as it circulates anywhere, all children are at risk.
 
Rotary’s nearly 32,000 members in Africa have played a critical role in helping the region achieve its wild polio-free status by holding events to raise funds and awareness for polio, and working with world governments and national and local leaders to secure funding and support for polio eradication. Rotary members around the world have donated their time and money to supporting polio eradication, the organization’s top priority.
  
 
Save the Date:  Thursday, 29th October 2020
POLIO DINNER
 
A  (virtual) dinner to celebrate World Polio Day and to raise some funds for Rotary International's End Polio Now Campaign is planned for Thursday, 29th October 2020 at 7pm.
 
Attendance at the dinner will be via a donation to the End Polio campaign and invitees can select from the 'dinner menu' what they wish to 'eat' and therefore how much they pay to attend.  Invitations are currently offered to Rotarians from Terrigal, Erina and Kincumber clubs - and their partners & friends.
 
Details of the dinner program are still being negotiated, but it is planned to have special guest presenters giving updates on the End Polio Now program or detailing their personal involvement with the disease - either as a polio (or post-polio) sufferer or a participant in a National Immunisation Day (NID) as part of the campaign to rid the world of this dreadful disease.

Congratulation to Jennifer Jones who has been selected as Rotary International President for 2022-23
 
Jennifer E. Jones, a member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland, Ontario, Canada, has been nominated to become Rotary International’s
president for 2022-23, a selection that will make her the first woman to hold that office in the organization’s 115-year history.

 
Jones will officially become president-nominee on 1 October if no other candidates challenge her.

Jones says she sees Rotary’s Action Plan as a catalyst for increasing Rotary’s impact.

“As we reflect upon our new strategic priorities, we could have never envisioned that our ability to adapt would become our North Star during what is inarguably the most profound time in recent history,” Jones said in her vision statement. “Silver linings rise out of the most challenging circumstances. Using metric-driven goals, I will harness this historic landscape to innovate, educate, and communicate opportunities that reflect today’s reality.”

As the first woman to be nominated to be president, Jones understands how important it is to follow through on Rotary’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Statement. “I believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion … begins at the top and for us to realize growth in female membership and members under the age of forty — these demographics need to see their own reflection in leadership,” Jones said. “I will champion double-digit growth in both categories while never losing sight of our entire family.”

Jones is founder and president of Media Street Productions Inc., an award-winning media company in Windsor. She was chair of the board of governors of the University of Windsor and chair of the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce. She has been recognized for her service with the YMCA Peace Medallion, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, and Wayne State University’s Peacemaker of the Year Award, a first for a Canadian. Jones holds a Doctor of Laws (LL.D.).

A current Rotary Foundation trustee, Jones has been a Rotary member since 1997 and has served Rotary as RI vice president, director, training leader, committee chair, moderator, and district governor. She played a lead role in Rotary’s rebranding effort by serving as chair of the Strengthening Rotary’s Advisory Group. She is the co-chair of the End Polio Now Countdown to History Campaign Committee, which aims to raise $150 million for polio eradication efforts.

Jones recently led the successful #RotaryResponds telethon, which raised critical funds for COVID-19 relief and was viewed by more than 65,000. Jones has also received Rotary International’s Service Above Self Award and The Rotary Foundation Citation for Meritorious Service. She and her husband, Nick Krayacich, are members of The Rotary Foundation’s Arch Klumph Society, Paul Harris Society, and the Bequest Society.

Holger Knaack
Rotary International President
2020-21
 
Message: October 2020
 
During a recent Zoom meeting with Rotarians and Rotaractors, I looked at the smiling faces on my screen and realized how much our organization has changed in a short period. It is clear that there is no going back to the "old normal" in Rotary — and I see that as an exciting opportunity!

Innovation and change are happening at so many levels as we rethink and remake Rotary. Rotary's new flexibility is blending with digital culture to drive change in ways that many of us have never seen before. We can learn a lot from Rotarians like Rebecca Fry — who, at age 31, already has 15 years of Rotary experience.

I see Rotary as a phenomenal platform to change the world. I believe I can have the greatest influence by empowering others to create the change they wish to see in the world. I've gained leadership insights through my experiences in RYLA and Rotaract, and now, as charter president of the Rotary Social Impact Network, a new e-club.

Engaging Rotary program alumni is key in forming new clubs. Our club is proof that Rotaractors and other alumni want to join Rotary — but sometimes they can't find the Rotary club that's right for them. Our club has 31 members, all between the ages of 23 and 41, and almost all of them are alumni of Rotary programs.

We need to be able to integrate and align Rotary with the other personal and professional goals we're pursuing. In chartering this club, we set out to design a personalized model of Rotary that is focused on added value for our members. We have also sought to leverage connections — through Rotary Fellowships, Rotary Action Groups, and other international partnerships — in order to elevate our members' experiences beyond the club.

Our club meets and manages most of its projects online, using Microsoft Teams to engage 24/7 in topics that interest our members. This also means our club is not geographically bound to any one location: Although many of us are in Australia, we also have members in Germany, Italy, Mexico, Tanzania, and the United States.

Also key for our club is measuring the impact of our projects. For Plastic Free July this year, we created an awareness campaign promoting ways that individuals could reduce their use of plastics, and we reached more than 6,000 people. It's a project with a tangible impact that anyone can take part in wherever they are. I'm proud that, through our club, we are bringing people together for a new type of Rotary experience. I am excited for our future.

All Rotary clubs have the opportunity to be innovative clubs, just like Bec's club. Let's trust those clubs, learn from them, and lend them our support. Change in Rotary happens at the grassroots level, as clubs lead the charge, defining what this new Rotary can be.

Change is constant, and we have more work to do in many areas. It is important that we celebrate the contributions of people of all backgrounds and promote people from underrepresented groups so that they have greater opportunities to participate as members and leaders in Rotary.

The tools to make Rotary more inclusive, more relevant, and more fun for everyone are at our fingertips. Let's use them now, and we will see how Rotary Opens Opportunities for ourselves and for those yet to discover us.

Masks for Sale
 
President Mary has purchased 100 masks sewn by the members of the Rotary Club of Glenhaven and is encouraging Terrigal members to sell them to their family and friends to make a few dollars for the Club.  The masks are washable and therefore, re-usable.
 
Glenhaven have provided them at a cost of $3 each and President Mary is suggesting we sell them for around $5 each (or more if possible!) which will mean a profit of at least $200 if all masks are sold.  With our fundraising efforts significantly hampered by Covid every little bit helps!
 
If you are able to help out, please contact President Mary.

A small number of members braved the cool conditions last Sunday to get together for a picnic in the park.  
 
The picnic was held in the park adjacent to Gosford Sailing Club and due to Covid - enforced regulations, it was a BYO everything.
 
Despite the chilly conditions, it was a very enjoyable event and a pleasant change from virtual meetings!  
 
Thanks go to Janet & John for organising it.

David Mylan was the guest speaker last Friday at the Gosford Art Galley Cafe.
 
David gave a great presentation about his business “Purposeful Living” and taking care of ourselves.
 
There were 15 people present who all shared about their businesses. I had the chance to talk about our Rotary Club too.  I had good chats with people interested in partnering with us on projects and someone wanting to help with the Book Sales after the meeting.
 
We can attend each month and I would love other members to represent us at some meetings.

Dear Mary

I'm writing to let you know what's happening with the SCC for the rest of the year and also for next year. Unfortunately due to the ongoing uncertainties regarding the virus impact we have now had to cancel the two remaining concerts scheduled for this year.

This was a reluctant decision however with the lead times required for rehearsal and bookings, etc., there was no other option. We are considering a possible alternative end of year concert if a venue and funding can be found however this will occur outside of the normal concert booking system and if something can be done, we will let you know.

Since the 2020 season was completely blocked by the virus restrictions, we have decided to schedule the same basic program for next year so you don't miss out on this great music. There will be some minor adjustments however and just to remind what's on offer you we have included the 2020 program posters below.

Many of you have generously donated to the SCC over this period which has been very much appreciated and has helped us financially over this most difficult period. Any further donations will of course be gratefully received and you can do this by using the Donate button on our website.

The same subscriber benefits of discounted ticket prices plus additional privileges will be available when ticket sales open for next year. We will let you know more about this when the virus situation hopefully becomes clearer. In the meantime if you haven't seen our latest online video, it is available here.

The Committee thanks you for your on-going support and wants to reassure you that we intend to make 2021 a great year for the orchestra and audience alike and we are already planning rehearsals and so we hope you will join us.
 
Thank you.

SCC Committee

Congratulations President Mary - Our Newest Paul Harris Fellow!
 
 
 
 
 
 
We were delighted to present (virtually) President Mary with a PHF at our changeover dinner last Thursday.  Mary was assured that she would receive her actual lapel pin and certificate at our first physical meeting when COVID19 permits us to meet.
 
The citation for Mary's Fellowship is:
 
Our Club has contributed to our charity, the Rotary Foundation, since it's inception, thereby allowing grants for projects such as the Didi Foundation, and awards such as this, to be presented in recognition of the Rotary ideal of Service Above Self.
 
A donation of US$1,000 to the Rotary Foundation enables us to award a Paul Harris Fellowship to a club member of member of our local community.  Tonight we have great pleasure in recognising a Terrigal Rotarian as a PHF - someone who has been innovative, passionate and inspirational, both about how we run the club, and also the different ways we can do good in the community.
 
This person has been very much more than a "quiet achiever", and has brought energy and respect throughout our dealings both with each other and the wider world of Rotary.
 
The Paul Harris Fellowship is an emphatic acknowledgement of the appreciation shown for tangible and significant assistance given for the furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations among people of the world. 
 
Our awardee this year has done this and more in furtherance of international understanding and support for those in need both abroad and at home.  Initiating and supporting programs such as Pamper Day, Rotary Against Domestic Violence, Feeding those in need during COVID-19, developing links with clubs overseas, and local projects, this person embodies the spirit of Rotary.
 
A Person of Action in the true Rotary sense, we are pleased tp award this Paul Harris Fellowship to President Mary Crammond.
