Week 20. Rotary Minute for week beginning November 17, 2014.
As you know, every 4th
week is recap time for the previous three weeks, so here we go!
Week 17: You got a report on our District’s Rotary Day event that took place at the Jacksonville 
Omni Hotel. Rotarians from practically every club in our District heard RI President-Elect Nominee, 
John Germ, and Pakistan’s National PolioPlus Chair, Aziz Memon, talk about Rotary’s epic project to 
wipe the scourge of polio from the face of the Earth. Our own Foundation Chair, PDG Cynde 
Covington, who also serves as Zone 34 End Polio Now coordinator, concluded the program on a high 
note with a powerful message about our local and District efforts to end polio; plus presenting John 
and Aziz  a $20,000 contribution from our District to the End Polio Now campaign.
Week 18: This week’s minute made note of the completion of my DG club visits. It was accompanied
by a wish that each Rotarian could have the opportunity to see what incredible acts of kindness and 
service take place through the good works of the Rotarians in our clubs. Affirming that you are part of 
one of the greatest service organizations the world has ever seen. And noting that through your efforts 
we will continue to Light Up Rotary in a big, bold and beautiful way!
Week 19: A reminder that November is Foundation month and to think of The Rotary Foundation 
(TRF) as two parts: 
• Part 1: What The Rotary Foundation does to benefit communities all over the world; and 
• Part 2: What we do as Rotarians to fuel the efforts of The Rotary Foundation. 
As Rotarians we fuel The Rotary Foundation in a number of ways – from Every Rotarian Every Year, 
more commonly known as EREY (eee – RAY), to Paul Harris Society, to Benefactor and for an elite 
few – by joining the Arch Klumph Society! Regardless of the amount, every contribution to TRF 
helps Rotary do good in the world. Think about what you can do to fuel The Rotary Foundation. It is 
one of the most efficient and effective avenues for your charitable giving.
Event Reminders:
May 8-10: Save the dates as we combine our annual District Conference and District Assembly into 
one big event. We’ll sail into the Flagler College campus in St. Augustine to Light Up the family of 
Rotary. Look for an agenda and more details soon.
For more on these events please go to on the home page under the District 
Events column.
Yours in service to Rotary,
District Governor 2014-2015

Rotary’s World Polio Day live-streamed event is a huge success
More than 23,000 viewers in 24 countries tuned in to Rotary's World Polio Day event, streamed live on 24 October. Health officials including James Alexander, senior medical epidemiologist for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gave an update on the polio eradication campaign and praised Rotary's achievements to date.

In addition to the update, the event included entertainment by...
Malala Yousafzai wins the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize
Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager shot in the head for speaking out against the Taliban in support of girls' education, has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2014. Yousafzai, whose father is a Rotarian, shares the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, a native of India who has worked to combat the exploitation of children for financial gain, according to an announcement in October from the Norwegian Nobel Committee. In announcing the award, the committee praised Yousafzai for demonstrating that "children and young people, too, can contribute to improving their own situations." It noted...
Rotary’s world headquarters hosts Evanston Rotary Day
Business owners and community leaders in Evanston, Illinois, USA, joined Rotary staff and family members in a celebration of the organization's cultural diversity at an open-house Rotary Day event at Rotary's world headquarters on 25 October.

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...
Rotary’s response to the Ebola outbreak
Rotary continues to closely monitor the latest developments surrounding the Ebola outbreak, and work with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other partners to respond to both polio and Ebola. Fighting disease is a priority of our members, who have organized countless projects around the world aimed at educating and mobilizing communities to prevent the spread of major diseases such as polio, HIV/AIDS, and malaria. While our response to Ebola continues to evolve, much has already been accomplished: • Through our investments in the...
