New Rotarian Action Group helps countries grow food that suits their nutritional needs

Correcting the "Green Revolution" mistake of promoting Americani-European farming in developing countries, this Rotary project changes the focus to indigenous crops that can allow the population to eat more nutritiously according to their specific needs and are already adapted to local pests, diseases, and climatic conditions.

    SPEAKER PROGRAM

    Terri

    Stuart introduced our guest speaker, Terryl Vencl.  


    She has lived on Maui since 1987 from Michigan and had been involved with hospitality and tourism for the entire time she has been blessed to live here.  She started out with the Maui Hotel Association for thirteen years and then took the job as director of the Maui Visitor Board.  


    She gave us statistics on the room rates, activities and how the board promotes travel to the islands from all over the world. New markets include New Zealand, Australia, China, Taiwan and Germany.  She mentioned media blitzing, market saturation, public relations and promotions as ways to bring visitors to Maui.  


    You can find out more about what the Visitor Bureau does by going online to visitmauiblog.com or visitlanaiblog.com.  Facebook or Twitter are also sources of the bureau’s activities.  The Board also handles Emergency and Disaster Notifications from Civil Defense and passes information on as delivered.  


    VASH is another program that offers assistance to stranded or sick visitors.  The Visitor Bureau wins the Conde Nast award  every year as a preferred destination.  San Francisco and Chicago are the next cities on the radar for saturation of information on travel to Hawaii.  


    There has been a major softening of travel to the islands but the bureau is working on how to increase travel and dollars spent. Television, posters and billboards as well as travel agents around the world help accomplish this.  


    Fill in your airport survey even if you live here.  It helps plan for future events and activities to make Maui the #1 place.  Maui no ka oi.


    Thank you Terryl

    THE ROTARY FOUNDATION MINUTE 


     

    The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the suppo rt of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

     

    A big portionof that mandate includes polio eradication through Polio Plus.


    The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.

     

    How can you help?  Donate today to Polio Plus or Rotary Foundation Annual Programs Fund.

     

    Checks should be made payable to

     

    The Rotary Foundation and your donation is tax deductible.  

     

    You may turn in your donation to Barry Hyman, our Foundation Chair person!

     

    Donating to the Rotary Foundation is supposed to be a continuing process. Rotarians worldwide are asked to contribute at least $100 per year to The Rotary Foundation,

    ....even after becoming Paul Harris Fellows.

       The Four Way test of things we think, say, and do

    First- Is it the truth?

    Second- Is it fair to all concerned?

    Third- Will it build goodwill and better friendships?

    Fourth- Will it be beneficial to all concerned? .... And

    Fifth- Is it fun?

     

    RCKW Mission Statement: In the spirit of the Rotary Four-Way Test, strive to improve the lives, health, and well being of citizens (with a special emphasis on children) in our community and that of underprivileged communities around the world.  Achieve meaningful results for our service projects in an atmosphere of fun, fellowship, and aloha.
