Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...

2016-17 Club President Tony Wallace  
                  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
