Week 16. Rotary Minute for week beginning October 20, 2014.

As you know, every 4th week is recap time for the previous three weeks, so here we go!

Week 13: This week’s minute turned into a recap of weeks 9, 10, 11 and 12 because of the special 
announcement in week 12 about nominations due on November 1 for District Governor. So I will take 
this opportunity to remind you that all clubs should be sending in their nominations for District 
Governor to serve during the 2017-2018 Rotary Year. Let’s get going and send in those nominations.

Week 14: This week’s Minute was a reminder that October is Vocational Service Month in the 
Rotary year.  Combining our vocational talents, we join together to do good in the world. You were 
all encouraged, as we transitioned monthly themes from September and New Generations to October 
and Vocational Service, to take this opportunity to share our passion for doing good with our Rotaract 
Clubs, Interact Clubs, Rotary Youth Exchange students and RYLArians. Make the effort to spread the 
good word and light up the family of Rotary for the next generation of Rotarians.

Week 15: This week’s Minute served as an announcement to sign-up for our District’s Rotary Days 
event: A luncheon at the Jacksonville Omni Hotel to hear RI Presidential Nominee John Germ and 
Pakistan’s National PolioPlus Chair Aziz Memon talk about Rotary’s epic project to end Polio 
worldwide. I hope you were able to be there.

Event Reminders:
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 17 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.
Yours in service to Rotary,
District Governor 2014-2015

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...
