Rotarian Ralph Jodice recently presented the JA Program titled "Our Nation" to a 5th grade class at Baresville Elem.  Here is an extract from Ralph's report.
 
Attached is a picture of Mr. Dustin Henning's 5th grade class at Baresville Elementary School in the South Western School District in Hanover with their course completion certificates.  Today, we completed the JA program, Our Nation. I conducted all 5 classes over this past week. They were a very good class, It was fun and it was very rewarding. 
 
And a "thank you" to the teacher, Mr Henning:
Hi Dustin....here is the picture from this morning.  Thanks again for having JA in your classroom. You are a great teacher. I appreciate your hospitality, and I enjoyed getting to know you. Thanks again for letting me do the extra classes on my USAF flying experiences and our recent Antarctica trip.  I learned from you and your students.

On Tuesday, December 20, a group photo was taken of the Hanover Rotary Club before our regular weekly meeting at Bay City Restaurant.  Our program that day was a wonderful performance from the choral group from Hanover High School led by Deb Smith.  The students were all dressed in period costumes and they did a marvelous job!!!
 
 
Recently Peg Sennett, a member of the Rotary Club of Hanover, was honored by District Governor Kevin Cogan, at right, with a Citation For Meritorious Service for her years of dedication to the District's Group Study Exchange programs and District's disaster relief programs.  Hanover Rotary President Greg Staub also participated in the presentation.
Well done Peg, and well deserved!!!
 
Rotarians Daniele Suppa and Bob Miller volunteer to assist the Exchange Club's flag day remembrance of the events of 9-11.  It was quite an impressive display and very moving.

Two of our members found signs of Rotary while on vacation this summer:
 
This from Ralph Jodice and wife Judy -
 
 
 
 
Subject: Redwoods Rotary Memorial Grove

Judy and I rode our tandem in the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park today in northern CA just south of Klamath, CA. Many of the Redwood Groves have names...am guessing they are sponsored in some way. Well, we stopped so Judy could take a picture at the Rotary Memorial Grove. 

So President Greg...does this count as attendance at a meeting? 

The giant redwoods here are spectacular. Hope you are all doing well.

This from Warren Risk and his wife Judy -
 
While traveling in Western Canada this summer we happened on the small community of Kamloops.  They have a beautiful community park along the river with lawn bowling, tennis courts, basketball courts, picnic areas, and playground equipment. Activities for all ages!  On a beautiful summer evening we strolled through the park and listened to a wonderful country band perform in the pavilion.  Note what entity provided the pavilion clearly labeled for all to see.
 
 
 
 
And this one most recently from Ralph and his wife Judy's trip to Antarctica!!!
 
Hi Greg...we're in FT Lauderdale airport for the final leg of our journey back home. 

This is a pic of 3 Rotarians from a few nights ago aboard our ship while still in Antartica waters. 

From L-R it is; Mike Cross from the Carlisle club, Joe Stein from Orlando, the ship's Captain (not a Rotarian) and me. We think we deserve credit for having a Rotary meeting. 

It was great fun to connect with them, and Mike and his wife will attend our open house next weekend. 

I'll tell this Rotary story on Tuesday. See you Tuesday morning at the board meeting. 

Have a good weekend! 

Ralph
Thanks to the efforts of members Torren Ecker and Jim Balthaser, the Hanover Rotary Club recently obtained 501(c)(3) tax exempt status as a non-profit organization.  We believe this status will be an added incentive for individuals and organizations to donate monies to our various fund raising events which enables us to support local, national, and international people in need.
 
At its regular meeting on June 30, 2015, the Hanover Rotary Club recognized 16 members on their years of Rotary membership.  The Rotary Club of Hanover honors years of membership in 5 year increments - 5 years of membership; 10 years of membership; 15 years, etc. and announces it to the Club annually.
 
Additionally, the Club recognizes those members with perfect attendance.  This year there were 6 members honored for such attendance from 1 year to 51 years.

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...
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...
The Rotarian Conversation with Ban Ki-moon
One of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s earliest memories is of fleeing with his family into the mountains during the Korean War, his village burning behind him. His father and grandfather had to forage for food in the woods; his mother gave birth to his siblings away from anything remotely resembling a health facility. “I have known hunger,” he says. “I have known war, and I have known what it means to be forced to flee conflict.” The soldiers who came to their rescue were flying the blue flag of the United Nations. The UN provided them with food and their schools with books....
Culture: Life in the bike lane
Like a lot of us, I spent much of my childhood riding bikes, but fell out of the habit for a while. Forty years. Then my wife and I moved to New York, where cyclists risk their necks in a daily Thunderdome of cabs, police cars, firetrucks, double-decker buses, messengers on motorbikes, and delivery trucks backing around corners at 20 miles an hour. Not for me! At least not until my 50th birthday, when my metabolic furnace flamed out. Calories started going directly from beer bottle to beer belly. It was time to start exercising. Either that or give up Samuel Adams, and I couldn’t do that to...
