ImageOkay, so we're not yet any competition for that large corporation with the clown and hamburgers, but I'm proud to announce that Dublin A.M. Rotary has now served over 15,000 meals through the Salvation Army Mobile Canteen.  Thanks to all of you who have given your time so that those in need so close to Dublin might have hot food and warm smiles.

ImageThanks to everyone who volunteered at the Dublin Irish Festival, with a special thanks to Dwight, Bonnie, Rich, Andy, and Dave.  While we had some storms, it was generally much cooler than usual, with the weather actually sometimes resembling that of Dublin, Ireland, rather than, as usual, Texas on a more than unusually hot summer day. Our new streamlined duties (alcohol support only) made this the best organized and smoothest running DIF for us yet. We made thousands to support our great work in the community, helped the world's greatest Irish festival run well, and had lots of fun. Great work!

ImageThe Dodgers, our Rotary sponsored Miracle League baseball team, had another amazing season this summer! They finished (as always) undefeated and above all, thanks to you, had a wonderful summer of camaraderie and happiness.  Volunteer Rotarians are paired with the players who have a variety of disabilities. Our job is to provide the players with the support they need to participate and enjoy the game of baseball, and enjoy it they do!

A special thanks to the following Rotarians who volunteered this summer:

Dave Williamson

Bill Rish

Page Vornbrock

Ron Morgan

Janice Morgan (Ron's spouse)

Marilee Chinnici- Zeurcher

John Susie

Cap Clegg

Jim Warburton

Grace Gushue

Roberta Kayne

David Rinaldi (Julie's spouse)

With gratitude,

Julie Rinaldi

Contribute to the cleanliness and beauty of the Scioto River.   Sign-up on Clubrunner today!  Alternatively, email or call me and I'll add you to the list - how's that for service!

Please join us for this fun and helpful annual event.  Wade the Scioto River, picking-up garbage -- sounds gross, but it is a lot of fun!  We are usually surprised with some of our finds!

We'll meet at:

Dublin Municipal Building

5200 Emerald Parkway


9am Briefing, August 16th

Gloves and garbage bags provided.

Please bring closed-toe footwear that can get wet and will help you walk along the slippery river bottom.  Hat, sunglasses and sun screen are strongly recommended.

This is a great event for children, if they are old enough to wade the river shallows safely.

Please sign-up yourself and a few of your family and friends, today! Thanks for helping to keep Dublin Green.

Next March, we are bringing back the Blarney Bash as our premier fundraiser. A committee has been working with the City of Dublin for a year now to sort out the details, and now it's time to start generating interest and excitement. What's a Blarney Bash? Watch this video of Wolf Lant and Sue Burness to find out!

In this exciting issue, we have not one but two spotlights, he segment in which we find out more about our fellow Rotarians.

Watch this video to find out more about Emmet Apolinario and Chris Curry. Guess who used to play music in a gay club to make money for school.

And in this video, we find out more about Tricia Arndt and Tim Redman:

Thanks to the Speaker's Committee for giving us yet more reasons to get out of bed early on Fridays, learning more about Rotary, our community, and the world.

Brooke Perrin visited to tell us more about Rotary District 6690's Youth Exchange Program, promoting peace and understanding and profoundly enhancing the lives of young minds.

In this video, Brooke tells us about the history and basic ideas behind the exchange program.


We also heard from Valarie Deck and Laurel Marks of Canine Companions for Independence. As explained in their website, Canine Companions is "a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships. . . . Canine Companions is the largest non-profit provider of assistance dogs and is recognized worldwide for the excellence of its dogs and the quality and longevity of the matches it makes between dogs and people. The result is a life full of increased independence and loving companionship."

Finally, we heard from Joan Coughlin of the Better Business Bureau of Central Ohio about how the BBB serves as a neutral intermediary between consumers and businesses, trying to ensure mutual satisfaction and good service. In addition, the BBB certifies businesses as accredited that meet particular standards; accredidation is reviewed and businesses that do not maintain high standards can lose it. In this way, consumers can find trustworthy businesses and also nominate businesses they think particularly trustworthy for a Torch Award for Ethics, celebrating innovation and excellence in ethical enterprising.    

In this video, Joan explains Better Business Bureau's mission.

Remember you can see many of our speaker's full presentations on our YouTube channel. Don't forget to visit our Flikr page and our Facebook page to see great photos from Mohan, Roberta, and Bonnie.

ImageWe are in the early stages of planning a Mission Trip to fit LN-4 prosthetic hands on amputees. We are looking to travel to the Dominican Republic either in October 2014 or April 2015. The timing would depend on what works best for everyone.
In June 2012, Rotarians Jim Burness, Sue Burness, Sharon Kendall, Paul Buchanan, Rita Hook, Bonnie Coley-Malir, along with Harvey Hook, Sarah Lutz, and 2 Interact Students traveled to Santo Domingo in The Dominican Republic to fit LN-4 prosthetic hands ( We were hosted by local Rotarians, who opened their homes to accommodate us and work on this project together. Most of the "advance" work had been done by them even before we arrived, making the experience very smooth. The fellowship we shared made the trip unforgettable, as they showed us around the capital city and even took us to a cocoa plantation. We also took one day to travel to Mission Emanuel, where Harvey Hook (The Gathering) has been traveling for many years, to work on a mission project. For us on that day, it was building a wheelchair ramp at Mission Emanuel's Health Clinic. We envision the next trip having a similar opportunity.
The biggest cost of this trip is the airfare. Currently, round trip tickets are between $650-$1000, depending on airline, stops, etc. The Rotarians picked us up at the airport, housed and fed us. For the Mission Emanuel volunteering, we stayed in the same hotel for 1 night as mission volunteers that came from all over the US. We ate at the hotel and I think that total cost was around $200. Some of us went to an all inclusive beach resort, of which there are many, on the front side of our trip.That part was a lot of fun but definitely optional
Two weeks ago, we received an email from the President of the Rotary Club that hosted us in Santo Domingo, asking when we were coming back and they were looking forward to working with us again. That's where we are now. At this point we are just looking at the level of interest in our club. If you have an interest in possibly going or just questions, you can talk to or email me or any of the above Rotarians.Image
I think I speak for all of us who went, when you get off the plane after the trip you are a different person. It was a life-changing experience.
