Dear Rotarians and Guests,
 
We are slowly approaching the end of Membership month and still have an opportunity to share what we do with prospective members and other Rotarians.  We had the opportunity to listen to IPDG Joe Roth who enlightened us on avenues/tools that could be used to attract and retain members.  In today’s society, social media has evolved as an important marketing tool that should be embraced in more ways than one.  We may not all be savvy with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. but the reality is more and more persons are gravitating to one or more, let us capitalize on this.
 
On Saturday August 22, 2015, we will join PDG Diana as we roll out our series of monthly training.  Please make every effort to attend as we know and expect nothing less than an awesome and enlightening presentation from her. 
 
September will be a month that we ought to look forward to, with Basic and Literacy chair Rtn. Keturah taking us on a journey that we shall remember for a long time.
 
Hope to see you all there.
 
Have a great weekend and a productive week.
 
Stories
Alix Generous is a young woman with a million and one ideas — she's done award-winning science, helped develop new technology and tells a darn good joke (you'll see).
 
She has Asperger's, a form of autistic spectrum disorder that can impair the basic social skills required for communication, and she's worked hard for years to learn how to share her thoughts with the world. In this funny, personal talk, she shares her story — and her vision for tools to help more people communicate their big ideas.
 
Alix Generous is a college student and biology researcher with Asperger syndrome. She stresses the importance of building accepting environments for all kinds of minds.

Why you should listen

Alix Generous has Asperger syndrome, but was misdiagnosed for years. A student and researcher who is passionate about molecular biology and neuroscience, she encourages people like her to share their intelligence and insights. She is a co-owner of the startup AutismSees, which develops technology tools to help all kinds of people give presentations.
At 19, Generous won first place in a nationwide competition for her work in quorum sensing and coral reefs. Her paper titled "Environmental Threats on the Symbiotic Relationship of Coral Reefs and Quorum Sensing," was published in Consilience. In November 2013, she was a youth delegate for the UN Convention of Climate Change (COP19), where she negotiated technology transfers and issues of medical importance. She has assisted neuroscience researchers at the Medical University of South Carolina, Tufts University School of Medicine, and the University of Vermont.

WHAT IS THE ANNUAL FUND

 
  ANNUAL FUND is the primary source of funding for all Foundation activities. Our annual contributions help Rotary Clubs take action to create positive change in communities at home and around the world.  Our gift helps strengthen peace efforts, provide clean water and sanitation, support education, grow local economies, save mothers and children and fight disease.
Through our annual Sustaining Member contributions of $100 or more, the Rotary E-Club of the Caribbean, 7020 has been a 100% EREY contributor since we were chartered in 2013.  Let us continue to support The Rotary Foundation (TRF) through our annual donations.
We have been and continue to “Be a gift to the World”.
