Week 17. Rotary Minute for week beginning October 27, 2014.
Trick or treat came early here in District 6970. And it was definitely a treat when the Rotary Club of 
Jacksonville hosted our District Days event on Monday, October 20
th
, at the Omni Hotel. We don’t 
have the official count yet, but Rotarians from practically every club in our District were there to hear 
Rotary International President-Elect Nominee, John Germ, and Pakistan’s National PolioPlus Chair, 
Aziz Memon present the latest updates from the Rotary International PolioPlus Committee. The event 
was capped-off when our District Rotary Foundation Chair, PDG Cynde, presented a $20,000 check 
from our District’s global grant funds to John and Aziz toward the End Polio Now campaign – 
$10,000 for each presenter . There will be a video available soon thanks to RC Amelia Island Rotarian 
Stan Cottle. Stay tune for more details on that.
And now for the big announcement of the week! Working closely with DGE Fel and DGN Marshall, 
we have decided to combine our District Conference and District Assembly into one really awesome 
weekend event. So mark your calendars now for May 8-10, 2015. And be on the lookout for an 
announcement with more details. It will be coming your way soon. And here’s a hint: It will be from 
the Poncé de Percé.

Event Reminders:
November 1: Deadline for the submission of District Governor nominations to serve during the 2017-2018 Rotary year.
November 15 and 16: We need volunteers to help conduct interviews for the outbound applicants in 
our Rotary Youth Exchange program. We will be interviewing over 60 applicants to fill 20 slots. So a
lot of help will be needed. Please pitch-in to make sure that we select the best representatives from our 
District to spend the 2015-2016 school year studying abroad. Go to our District website to find out 
how you can sign-up to help for a half-day, whole day or both days. It’s a very rewarding experience.
Details and instructions for these events can be found on www.rotary6970.org on the home page 
under the District Events column.
Yours in service to Rotary,
Percy

Restoring vision to hundreds in China
Seeing an elderly Tibetan woman weep with joy when cataract surgery restored her vision after 10 years is the kind of moment Dave Razo will never tire of. For several summers Razo, a member of the Rotary Club of Warner Robins, Georgia, USA, traveled to rural northwest China with a team from Georgia-based nonprofit Gansu Inc., to provide free sight-restoring cataract surgery to some of the country's poorest residents. In 2012, after 22 years and 6,000 successful procedures, Gansu's founder, ophthalmologist William Conrad, retired and discontinued the organization's operations. But Razo didn't...
World Polio Day: Health officials laud polio eradication achievements, point to disease’s endgame
After a year of shrinking polio cases worldwide, the crippling disease is now on the cusp of being eradicated, said top health officials at Rotary's second annual World Polio Day event on 24 October. At a special Livestream program -- World Polio Day: Make History Today -- Rotary leaders joined global health experts and celebrity singers to hail the progress of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. After nearly 30 years, the GPEI, which includes Rotary, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is on...
Dynamic young club uses social media to grow
Erin Mills had just finished teaching for the day in Montevideo, Uruguay, when her smartphone buzzed with a message. An impromptu gathering to watch Uruguay's World Cup soccer match was being organized. Through the power of a mobile messaging app, a majority of the Rotary Club of Plaza Matriz had soon assembled at a member's home to munch on baked goods and chips while rooting for their national team. That enthusiasm and ability to draw a crowd has made the club, which just received its charter in July, a success in the country's capital city. Made up almost entirely of young professionals,...

Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country. With...
