Joint service week
 
 
Joint Service Week: 10-16 October
Dear Rotary member,

I am excited to announce that Rotary International is partnering with our friends at Kiwanis International, Lions Clubs International, and Optimist International to increase our collective impact through community service.

Celebrate Community is a weeklong service event taking place 10-16 October. During this time, Rotary, Rotaract, Kiwanis, Lions, and Optimist clubs are encouraged to collaborate with one another to complete a service project that benefits the community. Work with your fellow service club members to determine how you can best help your community, such as:
  • Cleaning up a park, highway, or waterway
  • Planting trees
  • Collecting nonperishable food for food pantries or clothing for homeless shelters
  • Packing meals
  • Harvesting a community garden
  • Reading to children at the local library
  • Volunteering at a local animal shelter
Whatever you choose to do, tell us about it! Tag @Rotary on social media to let us — and your neighbors — know how you’re giving back and celebrating community through service.

Use the club finder tool on the Kiwanis, Lions, and Optimist websites to find a club near you.

I hope this is one of many opportunities for our four organizations to collaborate and serve. We all want to do good in the world, and we can do even more when we do it together.

Sincerely,

John Hewko
General Secretary
Rotary International

Haiti Update: Your Aid in Action
 
Teams are currently in direct communication with locally based partners and senior Rotarians within Haiti. We are working directly with community members to ensure the right aid is getting to the families who need it most.
 
There is still lots of work needed as teams navigate logistics, security concerns, and access challenges, but your support is making it all possible.
 
Teams are currently in the final planning stages with locally based partners to ensure that aid is on the way to ensure appropriate aid reaches those who need it most. Click here to learn more about the situation in Haiti and how you can support these actions.
 
I will update you as the situation and response efforts continue. Thank you again for your support.

Are You Ready for a Rotarian Call to Action?
What if that Call got you a ticket to the Best Party Ever?!?
 
Most of you know this, but maybe you are new to Rotary and not really familiar with the Rotary Foundation (TRF).  TRF helps Rotarians (like us!) do great projects all over the world with millions of $$ in grants every year.  We keep TRF going with our donations to the Annual Fund and to PolioPlus, money that comes back to our grant program.  What most DON’T know is that in the last year our requests for grants are more than doubled, but our donations are in many districts lower due to the pandemic.
