Rotary district collecting relief funds for Louisiana flood victims
Rotary clubs of District 6200 are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana, USA, earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.
Hall of Fame singer Donovan becomes a Rotary polio ambassador
Legendary singer and polio survivor Donovan Leitch, better known simply as Donovan, has joined Rotary in its fight to eradicate the paralyzing disease that afflicted him during much of his childhood. Donovan contracted polio at age three in Glasgow, Scotland. The disease weakened his right leg and left it thinner and shorter than the other. Confined to his bed for much of his childhood, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer said his father would read him poetry. In a recent interview with the Daily Express, Donovan said that listening to poetry piqued his interest in creative writing. “If I...
World Polio Day toolkit available — start planning now
Rotary's fourth World Polio Day celebration, on 24 October, will highlight extraordinary progress in the eradication campaign and emphasize the work that remains before we wipe out the virus for good. With the number of new cases worldwide nearly halved from this time last year, we have the opportunity to rally our resources and see the last case of polio this year. Health officials and Rotary's celebrity polio ambassadors will head to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for the event, the first to be held at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It will be streamed live and then will...

                  Welcome Address
 
 
 
As we launch into the 2016-2017 year we will be challenged by many unsettling local, state, federal and international events and cultural/sociopolitical concerns.  In the midst of all this, Rotary can be a bright light, a shining beacon of good will, humanitarian effort and just plain fun.  Lord knows we all need some of all of that!  That is why I am looking forward to this next year where we can spend time, money and effort reaching out to one another and the world around us.
 
Thanks to all of you ahead of time for your willingness to give.  I am forever impressed by this club and the individuals in it who collectively walk forward hand in hand to eat together, laugh together and work together to accomplish much in little old Paso Robles.  More money for scholarships, youth projects, community projects, food for the needy and international projects to address polio, hunger, education, clean water.  Wow!  You guys are awesome.  So hold on to your horses as we start, run, and finish a great year.  I hope I can keep up!
 
Tony
