A few Rotarians from Midland Rotary Club recently visited Midland’s I-20 Wildlife Preserve where our club used a district grant in 2015 to purchase stone benches and a monolith to be placed as a rest area in the preserve. We were invited to see where “our” rest area was located. The director reported that many people are asking to reserve the Rotary rest area for devotions, bible study, etc. Midland is learning about Rotary!

Rotary Foundation Trustee Chair Ray Klinginsmith asked district governors in training at the International Assembly to lead the celebration of the Foundation's centennial year, 2016-17.
 
 
 
 

 

 
 

 
 
 
Rotary is marking the Foundation's centennial with a year of festivities. The celebration kicks off at the 2016 Rotary Convention in Seoul and will culminate at the 2017 convention in Atlanta.
 
 
 

Today, we look ahead toward a Rotary year that may one day be known as the greatest in our history: the year that sees the world's last case of polio. Wild poliovirus caused only 74 cases of polio in 2015, all of them in Afghanistan and Pakistan. As we continue to work tirelessly toward our goal of eradication, we must also look beyond it: preparing to leverage our success into even greater successes to come.

What Paul Harris Said

Image

"Rotary has a long way to go. One who thinks of the movement as a finished product is indeed short sighted; there is nothing in the past to justify such a view; those who have been long identified with it think of it as having made a beginning only; the grandeur of Rotary must be in the days to come".
