Message from Club President Maria M. Kalapati: Peace and Conflict Prevention Month

Sixty million people are displaced by armed conflict or persecution, and 90 percent of armed-conflict casualties are civilians, half of them children. Through service projects, fellowships, and other Rotary-sponsored campaigns, members train adults and young leaders to prevent and mediate conflict, and aid refugees who have fled dangerous areas. Members also pursue projects to address the underlying structural causes of conflict, including poverty, inequality, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.

From our District Governor Cyndi Doragh’s Report

February is Peace and Conflict Resolution Month!  What does that mean to you?  To me, it is a reminder of how lucky I am to be an American and so proud to represent Rotary. We have chosen to make a positive difference in a world filled with strife. Rotarians continue to battle polio around the world, and provide clean water and sanitation, education and literacy, food, clothing, medicine, heart transplants, wheel chairs and more...why do we keep doing “good” in the world?  Why do we care?  We each have our own reason, but I believe it is our desire to establish a Peaceful world and share our blessings with others.  After all, Service Above Self is truly Conflict Resolution!  If we focus on doing good, there isn’t time for anything negative.

Happy Birthday to: Kim Quigley – February 8th

Nils Weibull – February 19th

========================================

A Message from our President of Rotary International, K.R. Ravindran

We in Rotary aspire to great deeds. We admire those who gave great gifts to humanity: Abraham Lincoln, who gave the gift of human dignity to the downtrodden; Mother Teresa, who gave the gift of compassion to the forgotten; Mahatma Gandhi, who gave the gift of peaceful change to the oppressed. Their very lives became gifts to the world.



What we give through Rotary becomes a gift to us. And we all have a choice: whether to keep our gifts to ourselves or give them to others, and Be a Gift to the World.”

Our focus this year:

New Generations: Working closely with Interact

Membership: Target of 5 members or more….

Fundraisers: Total of 2 for the year

Service: Dictionary, Homeless Coalition, Literacy projects, Josh the Otter Program

Foundation: Support of the Annual Program and Polio Eradication

Do not follow where the path may lead…go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”
