 I am pleased to extend a personal invitation to you to the 2019 District Conference at the DoubleTree in Binghamton. I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting all of you and attending many of your events. The clubs in our District have a proud tradition and a diversity of ways they serve their communities and communities around the world. We will capture that diversity at the conference. Our major theme is:

Transforming our Communities and Rotary

District 7170 is a rural region that also has world class assets including 11 colleges and Universities, international corporations as well as a diverse set of small business and many service providers. I believe that by collaborating within and beyond Rotary our District has great potential for international development, local community development and personal development. We have assembled speakers that will illustrate our potential. We will sprinkle in fun, music and networking throughout the event. We will appreciate the communities that we are proud to serve.

I belong to 10 organizations, some of which I have started. Some days can be painfully busy. I have a big vision for our District and it is going to take a sustained effort over many years to reach our goals. I also believe that Rotary International is a special and unique organization that the world desperately needs. I see our District helping to drive Rotary forward.

Thanks for all that you do!!!!!

Foundation Minute for week of April 23rd

It takes more than installing sanitation facilities for a water and sanitation project to succeed in the long term.  It’s also important to cultivate healthy habits.  Good hygiene practices can reduce diseases such as cholera, dysentery, and pneumonia by nearly 50%. Washing hands with soap can save lives.  

 

The Rotary Club of Box Hill Central, Victoria Australia, facilitates Operation Toilets, a program that builds toilets and delivers sanitation education to schools in developing countries including India and Ethiopia.  The group constructs separate facilities for boys and girls to ensure privacy, and Rotary members teach students how to wash their hands with soap. Workers in each school are instructed in how to maintain the facilities.

 

In the Philippines, the Rotary Club of Puchong Centennial Malaysia sponsored several speakers to instruct students about oral hygiene, hand washing and the importance of frequent bathing.  After each presentation, students were given kits that included toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, combs and other toiletries.

 

And in the United States, members from the Rotary Club of Ithaca in Ithaca, New York, visit schools within their district to instruct youngsters about the importance of handwashing and how to effectively wash their hands.

 

Your contribution to The Rotary Foundation enables this to happen.  Giving to the Foundation is much easier – just go to rotary.org/donate

 

Thank you.  

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!
