Week 11 Rotary Minute for week beginning September 15, 2014

Have you ever heard of a “Rostertarian”? No, they’re not from Jamaica Mon. The fact is we’ve 
got a few right here in District 6970. These dudes and dudettes would be the member in your club 
who take charge of getting their club members entered into
And what is Glad you asked! That’s the place where you can find contact info 
and photos of every member of your club; and for all of the other clubs in District 6970 too. Thanks 
to our talented and over exuberant webmaster Howard Kelley, we have an online roster set up and 
ready to receive. In fact it’s been ready for a couple of years now.
The only problem is we haven’t had many Rostertarians to get this show on the road. Last 
week I visited the Orange Park Sunset Club where they have a really cool Rostertarian by the name of 
Ralph. And Ralph the Rostertarian has all of his club members on – with color photos! How awesome is that Mon?
So I am asking each club to look around for that special Rotarian who has what it takes to be 
her or his club’s Rostertarian. For each club that has their members entered into on 
or before 1 December 2014, District 6970 will recognize you at the District Conference taking place 
on 15 May 2015 at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine (more on that later). Plus, that club’s Rostertarian will receive a Bob Marley and the Wailers CD – compliments of District 6970 – seriously 
Event Reminders:
Saturday, October 11th
–  The Rotary Leadership Institute will hold its first sessions for the year at 
the Orange Park Campus of St. Johns River State College. 
Monday, October 20th

Tips to help your club find and nurture a Youth Exchange host family
With 12 children -- six girls and six boys -- the Labordes hardly needed to add another member to their family. But they did: Over 40 years ago, Julia Mullikin, a Rotary Youth Exchange student from the United States, became like another daughter to this large family in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. "She's been a blessing for us," says Maria Victoria Hallal de Laborde who was 18 when Mullikin arrived in 1973. Like many exchange students, Mullikin remains close to her host family. So close that when one of Laborde's sisters was diagnosed with a rare, fatal disease, Mullikin arranged to send the...
Free vegetable gardens sprouting up around France
Imagine a community where the residents are all free to plant, grow, harvest, and eat healthy food whenever they want without having to pay for it. Sound too good to be true? That's exactly what residents of more than 20 cities and towns in France are doing through a project called Potalib. Launched by the Rotaract Club of Versailles, Potalib was inspired by the Incredible Edible project, an international food-sharing movement founded by Nick Green in England. The Rotaract members obtained Green's permission to apply the concept in France, changing the name to "Potalib," a contraction of "...
Anti-vaccine movement may have global repercussions
Supporters of the anti-vaccine movement question the safety, efficacy and necessity of the very medicines that have so greatly reduced our children's risk of catching a host of once-common but potentially very serious infectious diseases, such as mumps, measles and whooping cough. And then there's polio, the disabling, sometimes fatal virus that was every American parent's worst nightmare until effective vaccines were developed in the 1950s — and which still infects children in the developing world. Some who oppose vaccines are well-meaning parents who have come to believe — wrongly in the...
Rotary’s Response to Ebola Outbreak
Rotary continues to follow the developments surrounding the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and advice of the World Health Organization and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, our partners in international public health. Strengthening the health infrastructure and supporting and sustaining the deployment of government health workers throughout these outbreak areas are greatly needed. Although Rotary has limited opportunities to respond at a corporate level, our strength as an organization is firmly rooted in the grassroots response of Rotary clubs and Rotarians. Clubs around the...
Since Boys' Week, Rotary has been empowering young leaders
The history of Rotary's work with youth dates back to the 1920s, when many clubs took part in an international event known as Boys' Week. The first Boys' Week was held in New York City in May 1920 by the Rotary Club of New York and other local organizations. The event was part of an effort to promote youth development in the areas of education, citizenship, health and hygiene, and vocation. New York club members reported on the success of Boys' Week at the 1920 Rotary convention, hoping that it would become part of the Boys' Work program, which Rotary had established several years earlier...
