Greeter this week: Daniele Borke 

The picture with this Greeter message is of Jonas Fichter, from Germany.  He is our son until just after Christmas when he will move and live with his second host family.  We hadn’t planned on becoming parents so quickly after we returned to Canada but this was truly an example of Rotarians coming together to get things done and make it work.   
Jonas was originally supposed to go to a Rotary club in the US but there were some problems getting him registered in a school in the other club and District.  The country correspondent coordinating his exchange to the US is a Rotarian in my husband’s Rotary club.  He desperately needed to find a club and host families to save Jonas’ exchange.  Of course this Rotarian knew that all he had to do was ask us to help out and we certainly couldn’t say no.  In less than 6 weeks Jonas had his visa and was on a plane to Canada.  
He’s a great student, not your stereotypical German –he sleeps late and doesn’t like sauerkraut!  We are truly enjoying our time with him and happy to have yet another Youth Exchange student to call our son  (this is our 3rd).  Youth Exchange is my passion.  
Alongside my husband Don who serves as a member on the District 6330 Youth Exchange committee, I devote many long hours and weekends to this pillar of service.  It makes me proud to know that I have touched so many lives and will continue to do so through Rotary. 
Inspirational Moment

Given how we often have "strange" versions of the national anthem on our meeting site, I found this relevant.
A US Marine Corps Colonel in Afghanistan said:  
"So with all the kindness I can muster, I give this one piece of advice to the next pop star who is asked to sing the national anthem at a sporting event:
Save the vocal gymnastics and the physical gyrations for your concerts....
Just sing this song the way you were taught to sing it in kindergarten –straight up, no styling. "Sing it with the constant awareness that there are soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines watching you from bases and outposts all over the world.
Don't make them cringe with your self-centered ego gratification. Sing it as if you are standing before a row of 90-year-old WW II vets wearing their Purple Hearts, Silver Stars and flag pins on their cardigans and you want them to be proud of you for honoring them and the country they love – not because you want them to think you are a superstar musician. They could see that from your costume, makeup and your entourage. Sing 'The Star Spangled Banner' with the courtesy and humility that tells the audience that it is about America, not you.
Maybe we can have just one National Anthem?? Oh Canada....
Let’s hear from our Guests and Members
Each week we receive comments from guests and members, who attend our e-meetings. We like to share some of these comments with you.
"From the inspirational moment, through the humour of the Canadiana, to the thought provoking new look at business, this was a really good meeting. I think Rotarians can take pride in their campaign to end polio as a great example of the new model of business working to solve a social problem."
Robert Boyden, RC Canmore - D5360
“Being able to apply a business model to solving social problems and changing my mental construct so that social problems are a profit opportunity not caused by profit.
Suggestions for future speaker programs: Useful Rotary approach to social problems”.
Al Davis, RC Barrie – D7010
“I learned something new from the membership corner and the landfill orchestra was pretty awesome as well. I will check in tomorrow on the Polio Presentation”
Gary Huber, RC Thornbury Clarksburg – D6330
“Excellent program! Person to person, with skills to share.
Once again, might this District partner with a First Nations Community who needs better water quality and supply, along side waste management.
The world is also within our nation.
The Maple Leaf was a great beginning. It was the national song we sang to begin our school day in Chatham Ontario.
Well done”.
Archie Skirving, E-club Canada One – D5370
Promoting our e-club

Membership Chair Doug Dyer had the great opportunity recently to give a presentation
about our e-club to 70 presidents elect and AGs attending Pre-PETS in District 5050. Most had little knowledge of us. Doug demonstrated our e-meeting on the screen and walked them through it. It was suggested that e-make ups could ease the attendance requirement challenges clubs have with some members.
Doug mentioned, that it was very well received, and he was proud of what we are doing.

A Little Humor 
New Members Corner
November is Rotary Foundation month; A time to reflect on the great Rotary Foundation sponsored programs we support and on how each of us can contribute to make sure these programs continue.
Our Rotary Foundation sponsors a broad range of Educational and Humanitarian programs that save and change lives here and abroad: VTT (Vocational Training Teams) formerly called GSE (Group Study Exchange), Ambassadorial Scholars, Polio Eradication, District Matching Grants and Health/Hunger & Humanity (3H) Grants, to name a few. These programs are the lifeblood of Rotary, creating world peace and understanding through the lives touched by the programs. Ask any Rotarian who has visited/worked on an international project about the difference made by these programs . . . there are many wonderful stories of saved and changed lives around the world. 
Our contributions to The Rotary Foundation fund these Rotary programs. While our Foundation is quite healthy (one of the largest Foundations in the world), there is so much more we need to do. Your annual contribution and/or a contribution to the Foundation permanent fund (through a major gift or benefactor contribution) fuels our Rotary programs. A contribution to the Foundation is one of the best investments you can make with nearly 100% going to Rotary programs that save and change lives. 
We encourage you to learn more about The Rotary Foundation and make a contribution to continue saving and changing lives.

Rotary Minute 
Why I am a Paul Harris Fellow

Food for Thought 
According to researchers people who are happy but have little-to-no sense of meaning in their lives have the same gene expression patterns as people who are responding to and enduring chronic adversity. It’s true. Empty positive emotions are about as good for you as adversity.  It turns out feeling good - or “happy” - is not enough.  People need meaning to thrive.
Speaker Program 
A $300,000 grant from The Rotary Foundation helped the Rotary Clubs of Calcutta Metropolitan, India, and Medicine Hat, Canada, improve living conditions for more than 50,000 villagers in rural
India. See how in this video.
