Shoes for Orphan Souls Project by Laura Erbaugh
District Governor Norma Berry is calling all Rotarians in Southwest Ohio to Participate in a District-Wide Project to collect NEW shoes for Shoes and socks For Orphan Souls www.shoesforphansouls.org .
We will be collecting NEW shoes and socks each Monday at Rotary (or you may bring them to the Rotary Office ( between now and April 4th.) The shoes will then be transported to the District Conference in Cincinnati on April 8 & 9 and will be shipped out from there.
Any styles and sizes are acceptable children's or adults however the greatest need is for athletic type shoes. Please bring your shoes with the laces tied together and no need to bring the box—we will not be shipping them in their original packaging.
The goal is for each member to bring in one pair of shoes—but of course we welcome you to do as much as you can for this very worthwhile project.

Dayton Rotary Hosts Group Study Exchange Team from Nigeria by Erbaugh, Laura
Carolyn Rice, Director of International Services for our Club introduced our special guests a Group Study Exchange Team from Nigeria at the Dayton Rotary meeting on Monday, April 29th. The group consists of one Rotarian Team Leader and three young professionals. Team Leader Joe Uweri (Rotarian), Osehon Irehoubude (attorney), Danie Braide (broadcaster/reporter), and Amanda Akonjom (school administrator). Each team member took a few minutes to talk about the Rotary Club in Nigeria and about Nigeria itself and we were encouraged to look up Nigeria on the internet and learn more about their country. In fact Amanda gave us a homework assignment to do so! The team was hosted by our club for 4 days and thank you to the host families: Paul Miller, Carolyn Rice, Jack Lohbeck and Alan Pippenger. We are the 5th club in our District to host the team that arrived in the United States on April 15th. They have four more clubs to visit before they return home. While they are here they get to visit with companies similar to their occupation back in Nigeria so that they can experience the cultural differences between the two countries in their relevant field of interest. Carolyn Rice also made note that an outbound GSE team just left several days ago to go to Nigeria and that we had a candidate that we sponsored on that trip, Jennifer Reitz who will report back to us on her experiences when she returns.

This Happened Last Monday... by Laura Erbaugh
Monday, May 20, 2013, "Excellence in Education Awards"
BY: Stephen Keyes
The Meeting was called to order by President Frank Scott who updated us on the progress of the 100th Anniversary Gala program and reminded us all to register to attend. He then introduced David Bowman for the invocation and pledge to the Flag. Bill Nance then gave us the news of the day, followed by Iris Juergens who introduced a few guests in attendance.
Standing in for Secretary Amy Radachi today was Phil Parks. Phil started out with the birthday announcements and followed them up a club-wide fine if you were not proudly displaying your Rotary Pin today, needless to say, it was a great day for Dayton Rotary. Adding to the donations was Ken Herr, Lori Ward, Bill Knerr, Jack Lohbeck, and Jean Maychack. Today’s donations were in honor of family celebrations, the honor of educators, and the honor of the 30th Anniversary of Careflight.
President Frank then called Kathleen Carlson to award Siebenthaler Centennial Fellowships to Jack Lohbeck, Steve Naas, and Bill Knerr. She also updated the club that the collections are almost complete on all the pledges made for the Centennial Legacy Launch Project. Just 2 more to come in! We will be presenting the $100,000 check to Five Rivers MetroParks at our 100th Anniversary Gala event on June 3rd.
David Bowman also introduced our newest member, Bill DeFries. Welcome to Rotary Bill!
Followed by a Vocational Profile Interview given by Bill Nance with Dudley Bray about the Learning Tree Farm and the celebration of the farm’s 40th anniversary.
The Chair of the Day, Leronda Lucky then introduced three Educators and one Administrator who were the recipients of the “Excellence in Education Awards”. The Educators were: Susan Newman, Marjorie Neely, and Mark Kennedy. The Administrator was Phillitia Charlton. Each honoree received a certificate and a check for $500 in appreciation of their “Service Above Self” in the classroom. Each of the honorees took just a minute to thank those who contributed to their success as educators.
This was followed by a few words of encouragement for the educators in attendance from Mrs. Williams, a retired Dayton Public School teacher and mother of Dayton City Commissioner Joey Williams.
Thank you to Leronda Lucky and her Committee Members: Markus Rumpfkeil, Robert Taft, Martin Clark, Karla Garrett Harshaw, Lorna Dawes and Carl Moyer for putting on another successful Excellence in Education recognition program.
