Rotary District Re-cap

Debbie shared w/ Rotary on how to increase membership. More members=more money for more projects, locally and internationally.

 Look at what Miami Rotary has accomplished so far:

Furnished OB/GYN for CVRMC, Bathrooms in Miami Library, Park benches in Miami, furnished flag for Miami Town Hall, monetary support for Fire Truck in Mexico, monetary support for ER/OP ward in India, furnished hospitals in border communities w/ used hospital equipment from Gila General. 

 Think how much more we can do with additional members and funds to support new projects?!!?

Possible new fundraising events: mascarade party. Goal is to make money for more service projects. 

  • We need a calendar of events to determine what we have planned and what new items we can do.

October is Rotary Vocational Month
by Davis, Sherri


October is Rotary Vocational Month 

It is a great time to remind ourselves of the FOUR-WAY test of the things we think, say or do
       1.  Is it the TRUTH?
       2.  Is it FAIR to all concerned?
       3.  Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
       4.  Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

http://www.rotary.org/SiteCollectionImages/WebAds/VocationalService_en.jpg



Through the Avenue of Vocational Service, Rotarians contribute their professional expertise and skills to address societal problems and needs, promote high ethical standards in the workplace, support career planning and other vocational activities, and represent the dignity and value of their profession.

"Rotary's focus on ethical practices as part of vocational service has been a central part of my success in my business, professional, civic, and personal life since I became a Rotarian," says Paul A. Netzel, vice chair of the Vocational Service Promotion Committee and past RI director.

Rotarians have two benchmarks for promoting professional integrity: The Four-Way Test and the Declaration of Rotarians in Businesses and Professions.

"Rotary's Four-Way Test has served as an easy template for me in weighing the pros and cons of countless issues and decisions I've had to address over my career," Netzel says. "It has helped make me a better Rotarian."

Netzel says vocational service sets Rotary apart from other service and humanitarian organizations.

Rotarians can support vocational service by

  • Strengthening the emphasis on professional diversity in member recruitment
  • Identifying ways to emphasize professions in club activities
  • Placing a stronger emphasis on business networking with integrity at the club and district level -- which also is a means of attracting and mentoring the next generation
  • Emphasizing the connection between The Four-Way Test and the Declaration of Rotarians in Businesses and Professions, and their importance to the values of Rotary

                    Notes from  July 17 Meeting

 

There were 13 people in attendance: Ramona Barreras, Jeri Byrne, Jim Childers, Freddie Chism, Carol Ann Ciallella, Sherri Davis, Debbie Fogle, Dale Rickabaugh, Ted Schaefer, Fernando Shipley, Carol Speight.

   Special Speaker: Gloria Petty

Gloria works for the Family Assistance Program for the State of Arizona, and coordinates with many organizations to investigate “dirty cases” of people who might be in program violation. These are families who are receiving family assistance, unemployment, food stamps, etc. and do not qualify or have misled the agency in their information so they can receive these benefits. Last year, she investigated 418 cases and over 200 of them did not qualify for benefits.  She saved tax payer money of over $1 million.

 As Rotarians, we should have The Four-Way Test in mind in every decision we make, all day long. Our utmost responsibility is to speak the truth, to be fair, to build goodwill and better friendships, and to do our very best in all situations.

 Invite a friend to Rotary!
