Dear fellow Rotarians and Guests,
 
On Saturday October 17, 2015 we had the distinguished pleasure of hosting DG Felix and his wife PP Carla.  It was indeed an excellent meeting and the fellowship was certainly enjoyed by all.  The meeting continued afterwards with Board Members and again this proved to be quite interactive and fulfilling.  
 
DG Felix certainly understands that the E-Club concept is here to stay and anticipates seeing growth in membership over the upcoming months and years.  DG Felix certainly acknowledges that the E-Club is a viable option in keeping rotarians engaged and a part of Rotary if they are faced with challenges in attending meetings etc.  He has extended an invitation to some of his Assistant Governors to join us over the upcoming weeks to get a feel of the club's engagement and fellowship.
 
We extend an open invitation and look forward to welcoming the District Governor and others to our weekly meetings, and our HHH Watch the live program at endpolio.org on Friday, 23 October, at 18:30 Eastern time (UTC-4) and take part in the conversation using #endpolio.

If you can’t join us then, you can still be a part of this moment in history. A recording of the event will be available immediately following the broadcast. Use it to update your government representatives, or show it as part of your local World Polio Day celebration or club meeting program.

World Polio Day
 
Please join us on October 24, 2015 as Rotarian Devorath chairs the meeting.  The final Saturday in October [31st] has been set aside for Club Assembly. We look forward to seeing you all there.

Alvin Law is a motivational speaker.  He has a special story.
 
He was born without arms, the result of his mother taking thalidomide during her pregnancy.
 
In the video link at the end of this article, Alvin Law addresses a Pink Shirt Breakfast in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada.
 
 
Alvin Law has spoken as a keynote speaker at a District 7010 Conference in Ontario a few years ago.  He was very popular because he is so very special.
 
This video shows part of his talk at a Pink Shirt Breakfast in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada.
 
The pink shirt Day is a day to celebrate anti-bullying and raises awareness of how to stop bullying.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
As you can imagine, Alvin Law was most definitely a victim of bullying when he was going to school.  However, he has taken his experiences and become a positive role model.
 
Watch the video and learn about Alvin Law.
 
Learn a little about the Pink Shirt Day and whether it might be appropriate for District 7020.

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”.
