Foundation Minute for Week of October 8th
 

Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus in order to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.

We learned about three areas last week and here are the others;
 

Saving mothers and children: Nearly 6 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, poor health care, and inadequate sanitation.  Rotary expands access to quality care, so mothers and their children can live and grow stronger.

 

Supporting education: More than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate.  Rotary’s goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy. And finally

 

Growing local economies: Rotary carries out service projects that enhance economic and community development and creates opportunities for decent and productive work for young and old.  Rotary also strengthens local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women in impoverished communities.  

 

Your support of TRF enables this to happen.  Thank you

We gave several award to Rotarians and friends of Rotary at the District Conference. 

Past District Governor Lana Rouff was honored with a Rotary Service Above Self Award. This award, given by the Rotary International Board of Directors recognizes volunteer service. Congratulations, Lana!

The District also honored Rick and Michael Sands as Paul Harris Fellows...

On May 18,19, and 20, Rotarians representing 31 of the 44 clubs in our Rotary District came to SUNY Oneonta to have fun and be inspired. From a pre-conference FUN Bus tour of Otsego County to a service project to youth exchange talent and much, much, more, we got together to recharge our batteries.
 
Enjoy some photos of this conference.

If you planted tree peonies last April after Gov. Richard's fundraiser, they are most likely blooming right now. Richard, along with the Rotary Club of Johnson City, celebrated the beauty of these plants at the first annual Tree Peony Festival. The festival featured artists, musicians, and, of course, tree peonies. Enjoy some photos from the event.

Did you know that one excellent way to recruit new Rotarians is to hold an Open House or Membership Mixer?

Here are some tips and a link to an invitation letter that you can customize for your club.

DG Zoë and Membership Chair Matt are enthusiastically promoting Open Houses in the District, and would like to help your club hold one. Contact us to get yours scheduled today!
