Today we met downtown at the Entrepreneur's Center to meet the inbound students from Bosnia. Out bound students from the Dayton Regional STEM school will go to Bosnia later this year. Our club is a proud sponsor of this cultural exchange and our own President Marilynne is hosting one of the students in her home. 

2017 STRIVE AWARDS

Happy Iradukunda, winner of the 'Don Boyer Memorial Scholarship' STRIVE Award and his mentor, Tim McCrate. 

Patrick Rwiyereka (Center) proudly accepts his STRIVE Scholarship award with his parents, teacher and Rotary mentor, Brad Balsom. 

Rawan Shalash (center) celebrates her STRIVE scholarship with her mother, niece, teacher and Fairmont counselor, Victor Colon. Her mentor, Dave McEwee could not attend but had Mr. Colon read a heart felt congratulations on his behalf. 

 

Our club had the honor of having Don Boyer's widow, Donna, help with the celebration. Don was a long standing Rotarian who helped to develop the STRIVE program. His legacy lives on with each scholarship and in the hearts of each Rotary member.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
Centennial celebration honors 20 noteworthy global grant projects

We’ve also led the fight to eradicate polio worldwide. As part of our celebration of the Foundation’s centennial, we’re honoring 20 global grant projects with special recognition.

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...
