Week 41. Rotary Minute for week beginning April 13, 2015.

The Weekly Minute – turns out it’s more than a minute! Last week I attended the first anniversary meeting of our newest club in the District, the Rotary Club of Interlachen and Lakes Area. It was a good meeting and a celebration to a good start for this emerging club – almost 25 members strong. The Interlachen and Lakes Area club is one of many clubs with a Minutarian who routinely reads the Weekly Minute to club members during the meeting. So I got to listen to one of my Weekly Minutes. As most or you already know, it took that Minutarian bit longer than a minute to read it in full. So calling it the Weekly Minute is a tad misleading. Oh well, I just want all Rotarians in District 6970 to know what’s happening and why everyone should be proud to be part of one the best Rotary Districts in the world. And if that takes more than a minute – so be it – you’re worth it.

Event Reminders:

May 8-10: District Conference and Assembly at the Flagler College campus. Mark your calendar for a weekend of interesting, informative and inspirational sessions, and a lot of fun Rotary fellowship.

June 18-21: Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) will take place again this year on the University of North Florida’s campus. Each club should sponsor at least one, and preferably two, aspiring high school leaders to attend this life changing event.

June 26-28: Zone 34 Regional Seminar at the Hyatt Hotel in Jacksonville, Florida. All District and Club leaders, as well as any Rotarian interested in learning more about Rotary, are encouraged to attend. Look for more details soon on our District website.

For more on these and all other events in District 6970, please go to www.rotary6970.org.

Yours in service to Rotary,

New delegation tool launches
As part of several recent updates to My Rotary, we've launched Delegation, a new tool that will help you carry out your responsibilities more efficiently. If you have a club, district, or regional role, you can now delegate your role-based access in Rotary.org with fellow Rotary members so that you can share tasks and responsibilities to better serve your club. See an example of the Delegation landing page. Go to My Rotary to learn how it works. If you have questions, contact us at rotarysupportcenter@rotary.org.

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Out of tragedy, some people create something good
From the August 2015 issue of The Rotarian What's the worst that could happen? For most of us, that's a simple question. We might be late for a train. We might miss out on a promotion, or even lose a job. But for some, the worst is unimaginably worse. An unfortunate few endure what Ani Kalayjian calls "true trauma." War. Fire. Flood. A daughter disappears. A son contracts Ebola. When faced with such disasters, "people feel anger, guilt, sadness, frustration – feelings that can poison the body and spirit," says Kalayjian, a trauma specialist at Columbia University. "Trauma survivors may think...
