So much in our lives depends on access to clean water. We wash our hands with it to keep ourselves and our communities healthy, cook meals with it to nourish our bodies, and rely on it for proper sanitation. Yet there are still communities around the world that don’t have reliable sources of clean water. And, you can help through The Rotary Foundation.

I was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia when I was seven years old. My mom noticed strange bruising on my legs, one day after summer camp in 2011. She had mother’s intuition that something was wrong and did some research. What she read pointed to leukemia. After a quick blood draw from me, my doctor pulled her aside and said, “You’re right, I’m so sorry.” I had to be immediately hospitalized.

Paul Harris started Rotary asking fellow business professionals to use their skills to help their community. People join Rotary for fellowship, networking, but, unlike some Business Networking International groups, to also have an impact on their community and their world. Fellowship and networking are often overlooked, yet are Rotary's most powerful tools. Vocational service is one of Rotary’s main efforts. It is in that context that Rotary developed the "Rotary Means Business fellowship years ago for Rotarians, to help fellow Rotarians grow their businesses.

This event allows the scouts to give back to the community by helping families with holiday-tree removal.

Watch November's 'Open Doors With DG Diana:' Rotary Foundation

Posted by Diana Nestorova on Nov 27, 2020
story-thumbnail
The monthly "Open Doors with DG Diana" online meeting on November 17, with more than 120 attendees, focused on The Rotary Foundation.  Our keynote speakers were Past Rotary International President Ravi Ravindran, chair of the Board of Trustees of The Rotary Foundation; and Amanda Lanigan, of Worthy Village, a Rotary Peace Scholar.
 
November is Rotary Foundation Month, which we celebrated during this online meeting. The amazing program also reviewed the District Grants and Global Grants that our clubs have participated in since July 1, and heard testimonials from our Rotarians and people we've helped with our grants.  
 
During the online meeting, the Rotary clubs of Charles River and Northborough had the best member attendance (per capita). They will each receive a Paul Harris award. The clubs will decide which one of their members will be awarded a Paul Harris, and the District will make contribution in that person's name. 
 
Because the online event - this year's District Foundation Meeting - was free, we encourage you to make a donation of $20 or more to the Rotary Foundation's Annual Fund. To make your tax-deductible donation, click here.

In many parts of the world, Rotary is a very prestigious institution that you must be invited to join and, as you know, costs a lot to belong to - especially, in developing countries. The result is that, in much of the world, Rotary is something to aspire to.  While at the Rotary International Convention in Seoul, South Korea, I discovered the Rotary Community Corps concept. A Rotary Community Corps is a way for members of the local community to participate in Rotary without membership costs. It's also a way for aspiring Rotarians to show their commitment to service above self.

All children need a bed to sleep in. That is the mission of Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a national non-profit that works to build thousands of beds for children so that no child anywhere across the nation will be sleeping on the floor. Getting thousands of children off the floor was the goal of SHP’s Build Day on September 26, called “Bunks Across America 2020,” during which local chapters built as many beds as possible on this one day. That may be 20 or more beds being built per chapter, and together across the nation with all the other chapters combined efforts, it amounted to thousands of beds being built in one single day.

Your Rotary club wants to do an international project. A Rotarian involved with health-care projects in another country invites you to visit. You feel it’s important to see the needs firsthand, but your club members are not interested in making the trip. Instead, some suggest donating surplus medical equipment, which they think any health-care project could use. What would you do?

Greetings, fellow Rotarians and Rotaractors!I am so honored to serve as your president this year. We have important work ahead of us at Rotary, and we are going to have a lot of fun as we do it.

Last year, we launched our five-year Action Plan to build a stronger future for Rotary. We are working to increase our impact, expand our reach, enhance participant engagement, and increase our ability to adapt. The last several months have shown that we — as Rotarians and Rotaractors — can realize these goals as we forge a new path for the future.

    Update On District Grant Proposals

    Posted by Victor T. Tom on Aug 03, 2020
    story-thumbnail

    September 2020 Update:  District Grant Subcommittee Recommending All Requested District Grant Awards Be Funded at Their Full Value

    The District Grant Subcommittee has reviewed all 18 district grant proposal submissions (with 19 clubs participating) and is passing its recommendation to the Foundation Advisory Board (FAB) that all requested District Grant awards be funded at their full value. After we receive FAB approval (sometime this week), emails of awards will be sent out to the Points of Contact (PoC) on the grant proposals. At that point, if a club has funds (or can deposit funds) in their dedicated district grant accounts, they can actually start purchasing supplies for their district projects."

     

    August 2020 Update:

    While the deadline for District Grant proposals was June 30, we allowed clubs to refine their proposals up to July 27. That's when proposals were being made available for review by the District Grant Subcommittee.

This year’s 36 enthusiastic GFs are a diverse group of HS seniors who attended RYLA last June, 2019. They applied and were carefully selected to be group leaders. By attending enriching monthly training sessions they've prepared for RYLA to be better leaders and better humans.

    It would be an understatement to say the world is facing a global crisis of a magnitude never seen before by this generation. Many of our communities lack funding and are struggling to provide the very services and qualities that would otherwise have made life comfortable. Many of our own members have been seriously affected, both in terms of their health and in terms of their finances.
     
    In these circumstances, the Board of Trutee of The Rotary Foundation must make decisions that enable our organization to persevere and thrive. We cannot do that without your complete help, support, and understanding.

    RI Liability Insurance And COVID-19

    Rotary International's Liability Insurance policies have been renewed for the policy term July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021. The RI liability policy effective July 1 includes a communicable-disease exclusion that applies to COVID-19. 
     
    Communicable-Disease Exclusion
     
    This global pandemic has created tremendous challenges for the Rotary community as well as the for insurance industry. As insurers are inundated with COVID-19 claims for loss of business, most insurers are now excluding coverage for liability claims arising from communicable diseases, including COVID-19.  As a result, the current general-liability policies for the RI insurance program have a communicable-disease exclusion. This means the policy does not apply to any liability or any other loss, cost, damage, expense, injury, claim or suit, arising out of, or resulting directly or indirectly, in whole or in party from a communicable disease, including COVID-19.

    Children who have lost a parent, sibling or grandparent can be traumatized for many years despite loving attention from relatives, teachers and friends. The Rotary Club of Sturbridge has worked the last two years with Comfort Zone Camp (CZC), a 20-year-old, non-profit bereavement organization led largely by parents who have lived through this experience.

    CZC organizes person-to-person and virtual camps free to the children, where professional counselors provide life-changing improvements for the kids and guidance for their parents. Recently, Sturbridge club program speakers Sherri Pelski and Anne-Marie Worthy, representing CZC, were linked via Zoom, and attendance was made available to all Rotarians in District 7910.

    Make Your Tax-Deductible, End-of-Fiscal-Year Donation to The Rotary Foundation

    Posted by Victor Tom on Jun 29, 2020
    story-thumbnail
    First and foremost, I wanted to say "Thank You" to you and your clubs for all the great work that you do throughout the year.  All of the service projects, donations of time, improving your communities and international projects - many of which were done with funding from The Rotary Foundation. 
     
    The fact is, without donations to the Foundation, many projects would not happen. Unfortunately, this year, due to these unprecedented pandemic times, our District's Foundation contributions are way down.
     
    Therefore, I am asking that you join me in making a tax deductible, end-of-fiscal year donation to The Rotary Foundation.

    '20-'21 DG Diana Nestorova: Now Is The Time To Be Revolutionary

    We start the 2020-2021 Rotary year with a changed world because of the global health pandemic. What an opportunity to have an even greater impact and engage members in an entirely new way. Let’s not waste a good crisis.
     
    This is the time for change, historic change in Rotary – new meeting schedules, new meeting platforms, new club models, innovative and flexible club formats, elevating the status of Rotaract clubs to be members of Rotary International, dual membership in Rotaract and Rotary, and a well-balanced membership that celebrates diversity. As Paul Harris famously said: “Rotary has to be revolutionary from time to time, and now is the time to be revolutionary."

    "The ongoing evolution of Rotaract is redefining its place within Rotary. 'It’s a new era,' says one enthusiastic Rotaractor."

    At midnight on June 30, hundreds of Rotaractors will ring in the new Rotary year together. They’ll also be celebrating Rotaract’s ongoing evolution, including the expansion of Rotary membership to include Rotaract clubs.

    “It’s really exciting,” says Ignacio González, a member of the Rotaract Club of Oriente de Talca in Chile. Until recently, Rotaractors have been considered Rotary program participants. “Now,” says González, who serves on the Elevate Rotaract Task Force, “we are a part of Rotary. It’s a new era for Rotaract."

    Roger Frost: Proud and Enthusiastic Rotarian

    Posted on Jun 21, 2020
    story-thumbnail
    Roger Frost passed away on June 16 at the age of 96, after a brief period of declining health. A proud and enthusiastic Rotarian, he was a 70-year member of the Rotary Club of Worcester, a Paul Harris Fellow, a past club president, and a past district governor. Countless times his children and grandchildren heard him recite the Rotary motto: “Service Above Self.”
     
    Roger became the third-generation owner of Frost Stamp Works in Worcester, renaming it Frost Manufacturing Corp. and growing it from a small rubber-stamp shop to a full-service sign and stamp business. After their family was grown, Roger and his wife, Nancy Frost, moved to Holden and traveled the world, visiting more than 25 countries—often while attending business or Rotary conventions. In 1989, they were in Beijing during the Tiananmen Square protests - their hotel, just blocks away from where the massacre took place.

    On June 10, Rotary International held a special Zoom meeting for all Rotarians, requesting that everyone consider donating their lunch money to End Polio Now.  It was a livestream event of esteemed polio-eradication leaders, reminding us about the important work that still needs to be done to stop this horrible disease.
     
    As you may know, RI has a shortfall of $15 million of our $50-million worldwide goal for to End Polio Now. To maximize our 2-to-1-match from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, we need to create an opportunity for every Rotarian to give. Currently, only 9 percent of Rotarians have given to End Polio Now.

    Our membership in Rotary International presents us with a unique opportunity, in the time of COVID-19, to fully take advantage of our mission to join forces and help solve global issues of health and economic development, along with Rotary's four other Areas of Focus  Among the other service organizations, we as Rotarians are singularly positioned to talk directly with our counterparts in other countries and share experiences and best practices.

    District 7910 Coronavirus Update

    Updated April 28, 2020
     
    The District leadership continues to monitor the evolving circumstances regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID 19).  Our primary concern is the health and well-being of all Rotarians, their families and the community. Concerns about the coronavirus continue to prevail, and there is no immediate solution.
     
    Therefore, effective immediately, all in-person District meetings will be cancelled through May 18, which is when Governor Charlie Baker has extended a stay-at-home advisory and a non-essential-business closure. Meetings are still able to occur via Zoom, teleconferencing, etc.
     
    As far as Club meetings, I strongly suggest that clubs cancel in-person meetings for the next few weeks. However, I will leave the final decision up to each Club and its Board of Directors.
     
    Best Practices that everyone should focus on doing:

    Stay Active during COVID-19 Pandemic

    Posted by Diana Nestorova on Mar 26, 2020
    story-thumbnail
    COVID-19 has definitely brought the word perspective to the forefront for us all. Across Rotary's global network of Clubs and its members, COVID-19 has placed us all in unprecedented territory. Far from life as normal, far from business as normal. Members and leaders at all levels of our organization are faced with decisions they never believed they would encounter, and they are asking for guidance on how to deal with this global pandemic relative to Rotary.
     
    We are all being asked to be socially responsible. That shouldn't be a heavy lift for us. We have been socially responsible as an organization for more than 115 years.
     
    Let's spend some time thinking of the opportunities, not just the challenges. Can these canceled events, fundraisers and meetings become future service projects when the time is right? How can technology (Zoom, Skype, GoToMeeting, and other platforms) help us to stay connected during this time, and how can that knowledge help us to grow Rotary going forward? How can we find ways to support the most vulnerable populations affected by this pandemic?
     
    Here are some suggestions on how to keep your club members connected - and to be Rotary active:

    2020 Rotary International Convention Canceled

    Posted by Mark Daniel Maloney on Mar 19, 2020
    story-thumbnail
    Dear Rotarians, Rotaractors, and friends,
     

    Let me get right to the unfortunate news — the Rotary International Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2020 Rotary International Convention in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. We are all part of the Rotary family, and your safety remains our highest priority. Like the more than 20,000 registrants who planned to attend this year’s convention, I am very disappointed. However, this is the right and necessary decision to protect the health and safety of convention attendees, as well as those who call Honolulu home.

    At this point, we are unsure that Rotary could adequately protect convention-goers from the risk of COVID-19 infection en route to, during, and after the convention. We are also unsure if restrictions on travel to the United States will be lifted by June. We have heard from a number of you who voiced concerns about gathering at the convention this year. I also heard from many who were hopeful that we could continue with the convention as planned. The Board was very diligent and considered all the facts before taking this decision.

    At this time, we kindly ask that you do not contact RI Registration to inquire about your registration, ticket or housing cancellations as we work diligently to inform all attendees. Here is an overview of our plans for handling refunds and travel logistics.

    Dear Fellow Rotarians,

    The COVID-19 coronavirus is affecting every aspect of our lives in real time, and this puts Rotarians in an unfamiliar place. As People of Action, we are most comfortable when we are fully engaged in the world – moving freely, meeting openly, and offering helping hands. These are very difficult times for people who, like us, are at our best when we are learning, growing, and serving—together.

    We are also leaders in our communities, and these times call for leadership. In many ways, this also is our time. We have proven abilities to reach out and collaborate to offer immediate help to people in need at a rapid pace. These are precisely the skills needed all over the world today. The global effort against COVID-19 depends on actions taken in every country. Rotary has the unique ability to help improve those efforts in every community and every country.

    DG Pam Raises $10,000+ in Polar Plunge for End Polio Now

    Posted on Mar 02, 2020
    District Governor Pam Anastasi (shown with her arms raised) has just experienced a chilling way to help end polio. On February 29, she and scores of other Rotarians, including Past District Governor Steve Sager, plunged into the frigid waters of the Atlantic Ocean at Long Beach in Gloucester, while taking part in District 7930's 10th Annual Polar Plunge to Eradicate Polio.
     
    While DG Pam's goal was to raise at least $5,000, she raised more than $10,000. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will match it 2 to 1, so our $10,000+ will become more than $30,000.
