Louisiana Flooding and how to help.

Once the waters recede the volunteer physical assistance would be greatly welcomed.

The contact for this will be Rotarian from the Sulphur Sunrise Rotary Club and District 6200 Disaster Relief Chair Larry Agee ( klagee@yahoo.com ) Also executive director of Disaster Aid USA.  He will be focusing on the manpower needed to assist all the affected areas in Louisiana.

I’m pleased to make a special announcement about some special awards provided by a special person, Carole Kralicek, member of the Arch Klumph Society and the Mesa West Club.  The “Kralicek Awards” (my idea for the name, not hers) are incentives for individuals and clubs to go the extra mile in several areas: Membership, Giving, Youth Programs, Service, and Public Image.

On April 30, 2017, a District Achievement Awards Committee will announce the winner of these special awards based on participation this Rotary year up to April 15th.  Each winner, both individuals and clubs, will receive 1,000 Foundation Points to use however they choose.  This is the equivalent of a full Paul Harris Fellow award, quite an honor!

All but a few of these awards are quantitative in nature and will be based on figures reported by the clubs online via Rotary Club Central.  Additionally, these awards will be formally recognized at the 2017 District Conference, June 23-25.

Congratulations to Barb Feder and the Rotary Club of Tempe Downtown. They get it!

Here’s how their club is initiating Vocational Service, and you can too

From President Barb: Rotary Means Business in 2016-17. “Vocational Service is recognizing the occupations of all Rotarians and the application of their talents in the spirit of service or the betterment of communities.” Let’s mean business at the Rotary Club of Tempe Downtown by instituting “Two Minute Occupational Talks” as suggested by our Rotary Zone 25/26 leadership. We’ll have one talk at every meeting, and everyone will have a turn to tell their story.

Join the movement……………..Make Vocational Service happen in your club.

It’s time to CELEBRATE 100 years of Doing Good in the World!
