January 2021

January is finally here. As we look forward to 2021, our thinking doesn’t have to stop at the end of these 365 days. Are you thinking ahead about what you will be doing in 2022, 2023, and beyond?

We cannot foresee the future, but we can steer ourselves where we want to go. I think it is important that every Rotary club hold a strategic meeting at least once a year. Past RI Director Greg Yank, who has a lot of experience working with clubs on their plans, shares his viewpoint.

A famous aphorism states, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” Planning is essential to achieving success in all areas of life, including Rotary, and we’re getting better at it every year.

Strategic planning for Rotary clubs works. I have helped many clubs find that pathway by working with them to build what I call a blueprint, a multiyear plan that answers the fundamental question: “What is our vision for our club?” The best plans I have seen are those that are focused, when a club concentrates its resources on the best opportunities it has. Your Rotary club cannot be all things to its members and to the community it serves; it has limited human, financial, and time resources. A successful plan factors in assets and limitations to chart the desired pathway for your members.

Begin building a multiyear strategic plan by brainstorming with your club, asking, “What are our initiatives and priorities for the next two to three years?” Document your answers using action-oriented language that is specific, concrete, and measurable about the goals you want to achieve.

Next, narrow down your initiatives to a core set of three to five priorities. Your club will then develop specific objectives for each initiative, outlining who will be involved, key milestones of achievement, how progress will be tracked, and a timeline for completion. Keep your plan short and simple.

Then go out and do it. Review the progress you make toward accomplishing the initiatives, and revise as needed at least once a year. Rotary has a solid template to assist clubs in their planning, which you can find at my.rotary.org/en/document/strategic-planning-guide.

We want to enrich and enliven our clubs with new discussions and ideas. But how do we attract the diverse professionals, from different backgrounds, ages, and experiences, who are all driven by as strong a sense of integrity as we are?

Through strategic planning, we explore this question to define the very nature of our club and the value it offers to its members and to the community. Each club is different, and each club’s value will be unique. During the planning process, clubs may also find that some of the activities they used to do are no longer relevant or attractive.

Once your club makes a strategic plan, it’s time to take action and carry out the necessary changes. When we do that — as we engage members in vibrant and active clubs that not only have fun but also serve their communities with projects that have real and lasting impact — our clubs grow stronger. And when we discover what makes our own clubs unique and build upon those core values in all our efforts, Rotary Opens Opportunities to enrich the lives of everyone.

ROTARY'S BIRTHDAY in February.    DO  YOU REMEMBER OUR CENTRAL COAST  100yr PROJECT in 2005 ?
 
Rotary International celebrated its 100 years in February 2005 and as Assistant Governor for all 14 Central Coast Clubs at the time, I was elected/seconded to coordinate all clubs to combine to provide a remembrance of Rotary’s achievements for our local community.
 
All 14 clubs contributed and enthusiastically supported the idea. My committee initially proposed contributing to a 100 bed student accommodation at Ourimbah UNI, but red tape etc led us to productive negotiations with Mt Penang Gardens.
 
Our combined Rotary club funds of $70,000 provided construction of the appealing “Puddle Gardens” and  “Rock Gardens” within the Complex at Kariong. Rotary plaques and a time capsule were installed. The time capsule included newsletters and details of great Rotary project by our local clubs over many past years. See www.mtpenangparklands.nsw.gov.au
 
Fifteen years have past and the gardens are looking very good with a fabulous variety of unusual plants, shrubs and trees, pleasant waterways, a kids play area and good café/restaurant .
 
I suggest local Rotary Clubs or Rotarians should make a return visit. Its free, outside and safe from the “CV “ bug. 
 
If you wish to arrange a transfer meeting there contact Café owner Jas on 0425 835 605 to discuss dinner arrangements and extending hours of park opening.
         
Regards & Thanks to all Coast Clubs.

Rotary Foundation receives highest rating from Charity Navigator for 13th consecutive year

By Rotary International

For the 13th consecutive year, The Rotary Foundation has received the highest rating — four stars — from Charity Navigator, an independent evaluator of charities in the U.S.

The Foundation earned the recognition for adhering to sector best practices and executing its mission in a financially efficient way, demonstrating both strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency. Only one percent of the organizations Charity Navigator evaluates have received 13 consecutive 4-star evaluations.

"Your achievement and 4-star rating will enhance your organization’s fundraising and public relations efforts,” says Michael Thatcher, president and chief executive officer of Charity Navigator. "This exceptional designation sets the Foundation apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness."

The rating reflects Charity Navigator's assessment of how the Foundation uses donations, sustains its programs and services, and practices good governance and openness.

 
 
From our Friends in South Africa:
 
Hi Mary, Anton de Freitas and I received this token of appreciation from Jo Swart, the CEO of Somerset West Night Shelter. They couldn't thank your club so decided to thank us instead. It's always nice to play Santa Claus from someone's donation😄

(The night shelter is who/what we fund with our Covid grant).

GRAFFITI REMOVAL DAY 2021 
 
A MESSAGE FROM BARRY ANTEES
Deputy Project Manager/Volunteer Manager
Graffiti Removal Day
 
For clubs based in NSW we have written to all Councils and Shires advising them of Graffiti Removal Day on Sunday 28 March 2021. 
Each year we strive to create preventative measures against repeat graffiti, last year we had great success with murals, they have a 10–12-year life span.
 
This year we thought of combing Rotary's 100 years in Australia with the green preventative measure. We have informed the Councils and Shires of Rotary's celebration and have asked them to provide for free trees where Councils do their own propagation, for sites where we can remove the graffiti, plant trees in front of the walls or fences thus preventing it being reoffended. if Rotary Clubs can work with local school children and plant 100 trees at these sites as a way of celebrating 100 years, greening the planet and preventing graffiti reoccurring. Having the school children involved will have them take ownership of the project and learn about greening the planet and the fight against graffiti. The added bonus of the promotional value clubs will gain is enormous. 
 
Of course, in addition to this activity we will be working with our community volunteers and Rotary Clubs to perform our normal Graffiti Removal Day operations where we regularly remove over 30,000 sq metres of graffiti each year from residential and community assets with over 2,500 volunteers. 
 
If you can pass this through to your club members, I would be appreciative.

Congratulations and Thank You to Anne Cantrill for her initiative in establishing a regular stall at the Terrigal Beach Markets.
 
Not only has this raised the awareness of the Rotary Club of Terrigal in the local community, it has also raised some wonderful dollars - enabling us to support some local charities.  
 
A fabulous cheque for $640 has been presented to Coast Shelter from the proceeds of the stall.  Well done Anne!   Thanks also to those members and friends who have helped out on the stall.

ROMAC 
 
Young Vincent has been a ROMAC patient for the past 16 months, arriving in Australia from the Solomon Islands as a very sick 2-month-old baby in July 2019.  He had a blockage between his stomach and his oesophagus which meant he couldn't take in any food orally and needed to be fed via a canula into the stomach.  Vincent was flown by ROMAC to the Centenary Hospital in Canberra where he underwent emergency surgery to correct the fault.  Three operations and countless medical procedures later over the following 16 months, he was declared fit enough to return home.  He and his mother flew out to Honiara on Sunday.  Vincent and his mum, Cosinta, have been hosted by the District 9705 ROMAC Chair, Sandra Goldstraw and her husband Brian assisted by the local ROMAC team of volunteers.
 
 
The Canberra Times and ABC News picked up the story and featured it on the on-line services over the past few days
