Aberdeen Rotarian honoured for his community work 

 

Rotarian, Ian Dow, has been honoured with Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland’s Champions of Change award for his outstanding work in helping the community.

 

Ian was chosen to receive the award after playing a key role in his Rotary club’s Education in The Gambia project for a school in Ghana Town ; a small fishing village in Gambia which Ian has visited several times over the past three years to oversee the project. Ian’s club has raised over £9,000, which has provided teacher training, a new classroom, toilets and educational equipment.

 
 
 
 
At its regular meeting on Tuesday November 3, 2015, the Hanover Rotary Club awarded funds to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  On hand to receive the funds was Becky Kroft, Development Associate for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Pa and West Virginia.  This is one of the many charities and organizations to whom the Hanover Rotary Club provides funding throughout the year.  Pictured is Rotary President, Kelly Rebert (right), and Becky Kroft from Make-A-Wish (left).
 

 
 
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.
 

 
 

 

 
 
 
 
The long anticipated and exceptionally popular trip to the United Nations will take place on Saturday, November 7, 2015.  There are only two, private organizations which have consultative status at the UN, and Rotary International is one of them.  It's amazing how influential our organization is.

"WE APPRECIATE YOUR SERVICE"
The Rotary Club of York, PA is proud to be the only Rotary Club designated as a "hub" for the National Honor Flight. NHF was founded to give veterans of World War II and the Korean Conflict an opportunity to make the pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorials and witness the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. It is a special day which generally includes a motorcycle honor guard and a greeting with our national representatives. 
The next “flight” is scheduled to leave by bus from York PA the third week in October.
Rotary Club of York is asking us to help identify qualified veterans. The veteran’s name, address or email address, and phone number should be sent to Rotarian Al Sykes at awsykes@gmail.com. Al’s phone is 717-880-1261.
York Rotary is also looking for chaperones to spend the day with one of our veterans. The cost for the chaperone is $100.00 and includes a box lunch. It is an unforgettable day for the veteran and for the chaperone.

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...
Young member uses leadership positions to promote diversity, inclusion
The way Rotary member Todd Jenkins puts it, he's the first generation in his family "to do everything": first to go to college, first to fly on a plane, first to visit another country, and the first to live across state lines. Jenkins, 28, grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. His family worked hard just to make ends meet. So travel and college seemed out of reach. The eldest of ten children, Jenkins says his goal was to break out of the family status quo and set a positive example for his siblings. He credits his mother with helping him avoid falling into the...
Rotary recommits to ending polio in Nigeria
The World Health Organization has confirmed two cases of wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) in Nigeria, the first cases in the country since July 2014. After passing a year without a case of the wild poliovirus, Nigeria was removed from the list of polio-endemic countries in September 2015. These cases – from two local government areas of Borno state – occurred in July 2016. The Government of Nigeria – in partnership with the Global Polio Eradication Initiative – will take immediate steps to respond quickly to the outbreak to prevent further spread of the disease. This response will include...
