The Marblehead Rotary Club will be hosting FBI Supervisory Special Agent Cynthia M. Deitle of Swampscott as its featured speaker at its luncheon Thursday, Jan. 16. All Rotarians and their guests are welcome.

Deitle joined the FBI as a special agent in 1995, and upon her graduation from the Academy, she was assigned to the New York Division. In 1997, she volunteered for a transfer to the Civil Rights squad, where she remained until her promotion to supervisor in the Civil Rights Unit at FBI headquarters in 2007.

ImageShe was featured in a February 2011 episode of “60 Minutes” dealing with an unsolved civil rights cold-case investigation in Mississippi, and she appeared in the Investigation Discovery Channel’s program “The Injustice Files” in 2011, which profiled three unsolved or inadequately addressed Civil Rights era cold cases.

In order to get an accurate headcount for the Jan. 16 event, all Rotarians from outside the Marblehead Rotary Club and their guests are requested to RSVP to Tanya S. DeGenova at tanya@tsdconsulting.com by Tuesday, Jan. 14.

The Marblehead Rotary Club hosted Dr. Tim Johnson at its September 26 meeting for a thought- provoking talk about America’s health care system, its costs, and some thoughts for reform.  Dr. Johnson, a Marblehead resident, is well-known as “America’s Doctor” for his many years reporting on medicine and healthcare for ABC News and Good Morning America.

Dr. Johnson noted that we are all awash in a tsunami of misleading facts, political posturing and caustic catchphrases calculated to scare so we don’t think about the underlying issues.  He said his goal was to provide the information needed for us to talk straight about our healthcare system’s current problems and possible fixes.

He described a number of factors that have driven US healthcare costs higher and faster than other developed countries without better outcomes -- the decline of primary care doctors, our fee for procedures payment model, the role of insurance and its high administrative costs, the impact of new technology on expectations and cost, malpractice, and the media, among others.  Dr. Johnson also talked about the VA, Medicare, and Federal Employees insurance programs, and the possible impact of broader-based single-payer systems, and/or insurance exchanges.  He described his worries about the expanding cost of our current system if we don’t start to make true reforms now.

Club members walked away from this very interesting talk with a much greater understanding of how our health care system works or doesn’t, and some possible reforms. (To learn more of Dr. Johnson’s views, you can read his recent book, “The Truth About Getting Sick in America – The Real Problems with Healthcare and What We Can Do.”

The Marblehead Rotary Club meets weekly at the Boston Yacht Club, 1 Front Street, Marblehead, MA on Thursdays at 12:15 p.m. Guests and all Rotarians are welcome! For more information about the Club, please contact its Secretary, Julie Livingston at:  jlivingston@marblebank.com.

Press Release for Immediate Release: Marblehead Rotarians get a Lesson on Bhutan, a Country with ties to Boston, where the Measure of Progress is its "Gross National Happiness"!

Last Thursday, the Marblehead Rotary Club was treated to a fascinating talk and photo show by two of their members, Corine Barone and Andy Stone, about their travel to Bhutan, a small country high in the Himalayas between Chinese Tibet and India.    Corine is a pediatric dentist in Marblehead, and Andy is a new Rotarian, recently retired as General Counsel of a medical device company.

Corine and Andy described the country’s beautiful monasteries, fortresses, and shrines set in a landscape of green rice fields, rivers in deep valleys, all with a backdrop of the snowcapped Himalayas.  They recounted their hikes the to the Tiger’s Nest, an historic and beautiful monastery commemorating the introduction of Buddhism to the country.   This iconic complex is set on a cliff 3000 feet above the valley floor.  They shared examples of the colorful fabrics, costumes, and masks used in daily life and the country’s festivals.  They described their adventurous flights, in the country’s specially altered airliners, to the its only commercial airport located deep in the Paro valley, and flanked by towering mountains.

Many may remember that in 2011, the new king of Bhutan, Jigme Wangchuck,was married in a spectacular Tibetan Buddhist wedding featured on American television, and worldwide.  The King is a Celtics fan due to his close ties to Boston, having attended Cushing Academy, Philips Andover, and Wheaton College before a master’s degree from Oxford.  He is the 5th of the Wangchuk dynasty, which has guided the country’s transition from a closed society in 1907 to an emerging democracy and successful economy, while developing the widely known concept of “Gross National Happiness” as its measure of progress.

Corine and Andy told of the warmth and generosity with which Bhutan hosts tourists, the free health care and education it provides for its citizens, and the care taken to preserve its breathtaking environment, while measuring its progress with the concert “Gross National Happiness”.  Both are looking forward to a return to this country known as the Last Shangri-La.

On Thursday, February 21, 2013, Marblehead Rotarians had the pleasure to host Shogofa Amini again at their weekly luncheon and measure her progress  from the time she first visited the club upon her arrival to Salem State University as an exchange student from Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan in 2011.

Shogofa,  was a student at SOLA (School of Leadership Afghanistan) in Kabul, when she met Bob McNulty, a Marblehead Resident and the Founder of Pax Populi, who sponsored her initial travel to the States in 2011.  In 2012, Pax Populi again stepped forward and brought Shogofa back to the U.S. upon her mother's passing with the help of her brothers.

Upon her arrival to Massachusetts in 2011, Shogofa stayed with Marblehead Rotarians Paul Crosby and his wife Claire in Peabody, MA, then with Buck Grader and his wife Beth. and is currently living with the McNulty family in Marblehead, MA. Shogofa hopes to extend her stay in the U.S. and transfer to Regis College, Boston next year to complete her B.A. in Political Sciences before returning to Afghanistan, where she plans to get involved in the political process.

The Marblehead Rotarians were happy to see a more comfortable and better assimilated Shogofa, during this most recent week's visit to their club.  She spoke with ease in English about the importance of education to Afghan women, recounting her own journey, when her parents, who are now both diseased, continued to teach her at home in secrecy after the takeover of her country by the Taliban.  Her mother, especially, encouraged Shogofa to continue to read and study no matter what. Shogofa shared with the audience the challenges she had in learning English and how she started writing poetry to cope with the loss of her beloved mother. Shogofa introduced the Rotarians to her recent publication, "The Sky is a Nest of Swallows", a compendium of poems written by Afghan Women, which is a part of the Afghan Women's Writing Project (available on www.Amazon.com).  

The Landing Restaurant in Marblehead, MA will donate a percentage of all dinners sold in their dining room this coming Wednesday, February 27, 2013 towards Shogofa's continued college tuition in the U.S.

The Rotary Club of Marblehead meets Thursdays at 12:15 p.m. at the Boston Yacht Club. For more information about the Club, or membership, e-mail the Club’s secretary Julie Livingston at: Jlivingston@marblebank.com, or visit their web site at www.marbleheadrotary.com.

The Marblehead Rotary Club is pleased to announce this year's Lobsta Raffle winners: Aileen Ryder, Jack Hackett, Don Humphreys and Ken Bane all of Marblehead.

The Marblehead Rotary Club held the Lobsta Raffle Drawing at its weekly luncheon July 19, 2012 with the help of members of the Bell Elementary School "Weird Science Team".  This year's winners are: Aileen Ryder, Jack Hackett, Don Humphreys and Ken Bane all of Marblehead. Each winner will receive 20 lbs of fresh lobster donated by Marblehead Lobster Company.

The Lobsta Raffle is the club's primary fundraiser for Marblehead Rotary Club's campership program.  Through this program, the club is sending 26 children from Marblehead off to camp this summer.  In most cases these kids would not go to camp without the campership program and the Lobsta Raffle.  The $12,000 raised in this year's raffle comes from the combined efforts of Marblehead Rotary Club members, along with students in the Interact Club at Marblehead High School, and Patti Churchill and Cynthia Davis at Marblehead Chamber of Commerce Information Booth. Marblehead Rotary Club is especially grateful to Mike Kiernan of the Marblehead Lobster Company, who every year donates 80 lbs of fresh lobster to help Rotary send kids to camp.

Robin Bert, the coach of the "Weird Science Team", was thrilled to have her team assist  the Marblehead Rotary Club with the drawing, inasmuch as the Rotary club was one of its team sponsors last May, when the first and second graders were raising funds for their trip to Iowa to participate in the Odyssey of the Mind World Championship competition.

The Rotary Club of Marblehead engages in numerous ways with Marblehead's youth including its scholarship and campership programs, the Rotary Youth Exchange Program, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, Interact Club for high school students, Rotaract Club for college students, the annual Easter Egg Hunt, The Rubber Duck Regatta, and as seen most recently, Marblehead's Got Talent!  In addition, the Club is launching this year Heads Up MHD !  to build collaborative efforts to support the Marblehead Housing Authority's "Helping Hands Program" and "Intergenerational Activities Program", MarbleheadCARES "Alcohol Poisoning Awareness Campaign", the Marblehead Council on Aging, "Community Garden" and the YMCA "High School Summer Opportunity Fair".

Guiding Principles

 

The Object of Rotary

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
  • FIRST. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • SECOND. High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
  • THIRD. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
  • FOURTH. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

Avenues of Service

Based on the Object of Rotary, the Avenues of Service are Rotary’s philosophical cornerstone and the foundation on which club activity is based:
  • Club Service focuses on strengthening fellowship and ensuring the effective functioning of the club.
  • Vocational Service encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards.
  • Community Service covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community.
  • International Service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.
  • New Generations Service recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities, service projects, and exchange programs.

The Four-Way Test

The test, which has been translated into more than 100 languages, asks the following questions:
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?

Mission

The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. See the RI Strategic Plan.

 

Diversity and Rotary

Rotary International recognizes the value of diversity within individual clubs. Rotary encourages clubs to assess those in their communities who are eligible for membership, under existing membership guidelines, and to endeavor to include the appropriate range of individuals in their clubs. A club that reflects its community with regard to professional and business classification, gender, age, religion, and ethnicity is a club with the key to its future.
