Week 16. Rotary Minute for week beginning October 20, 2014.

As you know, every 4th week is recap time for the previous three weeks, so here we go!

Week 13: This week’s Minutarian turned into a recap of weeks 9, 10, 11 and 12 because of the special announcement in week 12 about nominations due on November 1 for District Governor. So I will take this opportunity to remind you that all clubs should be sending in their nominations for District Governor to serve during the 2017-2018 Rotary Year. Let’s get going and send in those nominations. See the district website (www.rotary6970.org) for instructions.

Rotary Vocational ServiceWeek 14: This week’s Minute was a reminder that October is Vocational Service Month in the Rotary year.  Combining our vocational talents, we join together to do good in the world. You were all encouraged, as we transitioned monthly themes from September and New Generations to October and Vocational Service, to take this opportunity to share our passion for doing good with our Rotaract Clubs, Interact Clubs, Rotary Youth Exchange students and RYLArians. Make the effort to spread the good word and light up the family of Rotary for the next generation of Rotarians.

Week 15: Rotary Days District Luncheon

DG Percy Rosenbloom hoists a $20,000 check as an honorarium to Aziz Memon (left), Pakistan's Rotary End Polio Now! chair and John Germ, RI's 2016-2017 President-nominee. Aziz and John addressed the Rotary Days District luncheon address in Jacksonville. Dist. Rotary Foundation chair Cynde Covington explained how that check will be multiplied through matching grants to underwrite polio inoculation of 110,000 children.


  • Rotary Youth ExchangeNovember 15 and 16: We need volunteers to help conduct interviews for the outbound applicants in our Rotary Youth Exchange program. We will be interviewing over 60 applicants to fill 17 slots. So a lot of help will be needed. Please pitch-in to make sure we select the best representatives from our District to spend the 2015-2016 school year studying abroad. Check the district calendar (upper right) to find out how you can sign-up to help for a half-day, whole day or both days. It’s a very rewarding experience.

Yours in service to Rotary,
