Hanover and Walkerton Rotarians assist in loading trailer for the Rotary Club of Grand Bend Global Literacy Project.
The Bruce-Grey Catholic District School Board has been generous in donating used school desks, chairs, chalk boards, white boards, books, boxes of paper, hanging folders and miscellaneous supplies that will be part of a shipment with the Rotary Club of Grand Bend Global Literacy Project. The 53 foot trailer is not quite completely filled, but the staff at the BGCDSB headquarters will add more equipment as it is sent from school board schools. It is expected that the container will be shipped this summer to South Africa for distribution by Rotary Clubs to very needed schools in that country.

I gravitate naturally to statistics despite the negative feelings some people have about them. I think that information is the fuel that our world runs on and without it our systems will sputter, stall, and shut down. That is because statistics are significant in decision making.

When I joined the Rotary Club of Nairobi East, Kenya, 19 years ago, I was told that good Rotarians were defined by the regularity of their attendance, the frequency of their gifts to The Rotary Foundation, and most importantly by their ability to introduce new members to the club.

But that is not what attracts people to Rotary ... to learn more - Read the rest of this post

2019 Council On Legislation
Report to District 6330
 
The Council On Legislation (COL) is held once every three years with the 2019 cycle recently concluded in Chicago, Illinois from April 14 through April 18, 2019. 116 proposed enactments plus one RI board proposed position statement were presented, 47 were adopted, 55 were rejected and 15 were withdrawn. Of the 47 pieces of adopted legislation 6 items were of direct consequence to clubs.
 
In an extraordinary joint statement by the Chairs of the main independent, advisory and oversight committees of the GPEI, the Chairs urge everyone involved in polio eradication to ensure polio will finally be assigned to the history books by 2023. We are tantalizingly close but, unlike horseshoes and hand grenades, close does not count. See where we stand today on this page...
Are you unsure where to start with your new member orientation? Have members learn more about Rotary and even test their knowledge with the new Rotary Basics course in the Learning Center. They’ll read about Rotarians from around the world, learn about our values and causes, and deepen their understanding of Rotary through this interactive course.

The Rotary Basics course was designed for new Rotarians, but it’s also a great refresher for other members — and even nonmembers — who want to know more about Rotary.

To take the class, use the link above. Anyone who isn’t signed in to My Rotary will be prompted to do so before going to the Learning Center.
