Congratulations Delta Rotary on a fantastic 44th year of good work and good fun!  This year we honored 24 high school students from Sheldon, Marist and MLK Education Center.  We sent 4 students to RYLA.  We deployed TWENTY TWO ShelterBoxes in the Philippines.  We distributed 300 dictionaries to third graders.  We partnered with the Southern Willamette Valley Grant Coalition for the first time and donated to a water project in Uganda, an early childhood development project in Thailand, partial sponsorship of a Peace Fellow from Nepal and the Group Study Exchange from Denmark.  We wrapped durable medical equipment and x-ray machines and shipped them to Ethiopia.  They arrived in Shichico in March 2014!  We became the official City of Eugene Park Steward for the Owen Rose Garden.  We sold 300+ booklets of Duck Race tickets for child abuse prevention and intervention.  Our Interact Club was awarded best in District 5110 this year.  We also won Outstanding Large Club.  We honored our first responders during our annual Law Enforcement Awards Ceremony.  We hosted an inbound exchange student from Cartagena Spain and sponsored one student out to Denmark and the other to Brazil.  We inducted SEVENTEEN new members.  We donated to Food For Lane County's Snack Pack program, providing food for students to take home for the weekend. We worked with Eugene Metro Rotary and School District 4J to secure foundation grants to support afterschool literacy programs in our own backyard.  We procured $6000 for the Boost and Enrich Students Today BEST program.   We honored each of our guest speakers with a donation sufficient to provide 100 polio vaccinations through the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.  We gave $14,000 to our Delta Rotary Foundation which in turn provided 8 scholarships....all renewable for a scholar's complete education.  We helped open a new Education Center in Peace River Canada.  We had to move from our long time location at the Boulevard to the Eugene Hilton.  Our old home will soon be 740 apartments for the UO.  Most important are the human connections and friendships made when losing oneself to the service of others.  Plus, we  had FUN!  2013-2014 Theme

NEWS FLASH!---------------------------The climbing roses are now in full bloom on Jan's beautiful pergola at the Rose Garden.  These climbing rose blooms won't last long.  

 

So, we recommend you don't wait until the next Delta community service work party that's scheduled for Saturday, June 28th to go to the garden..  

However, do take this opportunity to mark your calendar for Saturday, June 28th (8:30 to noon). 

 

To see the old world roses in the Heritage portion of the garden, where the gazebo is located, and to see the climbing roses in full bloom, we recommend you take your family and friends out to the rose garden as soon as possible.    The new world rose blossoms are at about 60% today.  Next week they should be in their first full bloom.  It is too beautiful to miss.

 

Your Delta Rose Garden - Community Service team

You're all invited on the June 28thImage

Friday is a "bump" day and a GREAT PROGRAM.  We will be hearing from Bill Woodward and our 20 ShelterBox Deployment to the Phillipines.  Bill Woodward has spent months as a boots-on-the-ground team to help victims of the biggest storm in recorded history that swept over the Phillipines last summer/Fall.  We have asked Bill to "take us on tour"--with a rich presentation of photos and stories.  Image

The Annual Delta Rotary Auction helps support our club's philanthropic activities.  While the idea isn't particularly original, the auction raises alot of money which we steward with our Delta Rotary Foundation and the Delta Rotary Board.  This year's auction netted $28,000 thanks to the hard work and good hearted Rotarians and guests who participated.  Delta Rotary is also very grateful for the skilled work of Sid and Hank Voorhees who served as our auctioneer.  The Voorhees donate countless hours and talent to the Greater Eugene Community and our gratitude for their time with Delta is HUGE!  ImageImage

Jacob Larson:  Insurance-Investments, sponsored by Erv Kincaid was inducted Friday April 25 at the Delta Rotary Auction.  While perhaps the quickest induction in history, it was heartfelt and we welcome you Jacob!  Image

District 5110 offers a Rotary "Leadership Academy" every year.  This course includes monthly online "modules" and quarterly meetings.  President Beth Sheehan is a BIG FAN of the DLA.  "The District Leadership Academy provides a high altitude view of Rotary.  It is a tendency to stay 'in the weeds' in one's own club culture and activites.  The DLA explores the overall mission of Rotary, Foundation, club operations and even the bureaucratic aspects. It is amazing I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!"  Congratulations to our newest DLA grads:  Delta Board Members Debbie Russell and Martyn Lindley.ImageImage

On April 25, 2014--Deltarians and friends gathered at Shadow Hills Country Club for a one of a kind fundraiser:  a dinner auction.   Like it or not....the auction does raise a significant portion of our philanthropy budget.  This year's auction netted almost $30,000.  This will help fund our foundation for college scholarships and all of the philanthropic activities we do.  We are the Owen Rose Garden Park Stewards. We are partnering with Eugene Metro Rotary, Eugene Airport, Cottage Grove and Eugene (downtown) to help fund projects in Uganda,Thailand, Eugene and South America.  We have youth exchange students, high school Interact, UO Rotaract, Food For Lane County.....Thank you thank you to all who participated and contributed.  Image

Two years ago, Delta Rotary worked with area Rotary clubs to gather, inventory and prepare durable medical goods to be shipped to Ethiopia.  Why Ethiopia?  Delta Rotary has a club member with a family connection to Shinshicho Ethiopia where Holt International is building a new hospital.  This hospital would benefit from state of the art durable goods that are no longer in use in Oregon due to clinic upgrades and medical group mergers.  A grant was written, the equipment gathered & analyzed before being shipped to Ethiopia.  Two years later and a 6 month journery across the sea and through Customs, the equipment is in Ethiopia!  ImageImageImage

INTERACT
Interact is a club for young people ages 12-18 who want to join together to tackle the issues in their community that they care most about. Through Interact, you can:
Carry out hands-on service projects
Make international connections
Develop leadership skills
Have fun!
HOW DOES AN INTERACT CLUB CREATE POSITIVE CHANGE?
Every Interact club carries out two service projects a year: one that helps your school or community and one that promotes international understanding

Eugene Delta Rotary sponsors Interact at Sheldon High School.  Kim Meyer and Wendy Dixson have been highly involved in this group for years and Delta is looking for new committee members.  Today President Beth Sheehan visited Sheldon's Interact Club as they gear up for a tree-planting project and leave Spring Break behind.  There's nothing like a high school metabolism, Pizza, Girl Scout cookies and good company.....ImageImageImageImage

Who are these crazy kids? Interact members from Sheldon, Churchill & Springfield High School. What is Interact...well, essentially it is Rotary for High Schoolers: INTERACT
Interact is a club for youth ages 12-18 who want to connect with others in their community or school. Interact club members have fun while carrying out service projects and learning about the world. Interact clubs organize at least two service projects a year: one that benefits their community and one that encourages international understanding. While Interact clubs receive guidance from individual Rotary clubs, they govern and support themselves.

Eugene Delta Rotary actively supports and works with Sheldon's Interact Club of 30 or so great kids.Image

We hate to look like a bunch of ninnies but Eugene, Oregon is an ice rink.  The snow is coming down and the roads are slicker than a greased banana peel on a water slide.  Delta Rotary is cancelled today  2/7/14.  We will reschedule our speaker who is bringing a recounting of her trips to Thailand with Rotary projects.  Anyone in the downtown area is welcome to drop by the restaurant at the Hilton.  Those of us who are out anyway will just have a little lunch!  ImageImage

Speaker: Cottage Grove Rotarian Chandra La Husen In 2013, 4800 quality books were distributed to 3000 young children in remote NE Thailand.  Called Thai Library Project for Kids and Families, Delta Rotary donated $1500 that was ultimately matched by District 5110 and the Rotary Foundation to $6000.  Delta's donation added to monies donated by Cottage Grove, Myrtle Point, Ashland, Coos Bay, Corvallis and Newport along with 3 Rotary Clubs in Thailand:  Kaen Koon, Chantanimit and Surin.  Over the course of 7 years, this project has provided 100,000 books to children who would otherwise never see a book and learn to read.  Rotary water and health projects are also happening alongside our literacy program.  Cottage Grove Rotarian Chandra La Husen has traveled multiple times to rural Thailand to dedicate libraries and train teachers as part of a Group Study Exchange.  Chandra has just returned from another trip and has current photos of children, holding and reading the books we have provided from half way across the worldImage

The Good Earth Home Show management identified ShelterBox as one of those organizations that really makes a difference to families in crisis due to conflict or natural disasters.  Jim McCarthy, Delta Director of Outreach Programs, was approached with a proposal to have Delta Rotary staff a booth during the 3 day Home Show.  ShelterBox was also offered a $10,000 match challenge.  Delta Rotary will spend the weekend at the Good Earth Home Show, showcasing ShelterBox and working to raise $10,000 which will be matched.  Twenty-Thousand Dollars buys what?  TWENTY ShelterBoxes which can house an extended family of up to 18 (not ideal, but possible) in winds up to 140 MPH.  ShelterBox deployment centers are staged in 18 locations around the world and are ready for rapid response.  ShelterBoxes are also tailored to climate.  Warm sleeping bags?  Mosquito netting?  Water purification?  Woodburning Stove?  Check out www.shelterbox.org    It's pretty amazing.  ImageImage

Posted by Elizabeth Sheehan

The ShelterBox is set up at the Lane County Fairgrounds for the  Good Earth Home Show.  Delta Rotarians will be there all weekend--we are planning to raise 10,000$ which will be matched for $20,000.  That sponsors and transports TWENTY shelterboxes (each can house an extended family of up to 18).  These tents and supplies provide water purifiers, cookware, mosquito nets, warm coverings (for cold region disaster like Japan or Syria).  ShelterBoxes are waiting in 18 deployment centers around the world to reach the world's vulnerable victims of disaster quickly.  

In the USA, ShelterBoxes were provided after Super Storm Sandy, Hurricane Katrina and Joplin, Mississippi after tornadoes struck.  Our infrastructure in the USA is far more organized and available than Haiti, the Philippines, Indonesia and the like.  FEMA's massive size makes it difficult to deploy to small "needs" in USA rural areas.  ShelterBox was able to reach rural NJ families, rural Louisiana families and very rural Jopin residents who lost everything.  

ShelterBox tracks every "box" via GPS and makes sure they go to the victims and not the  black market or corrupt government.  ShelterBox is Shelter, Dignity, Warmth, Comfort.  ImageImage

Posted by Elizabeth Sheehan

ImageImageImageFriday January 24 beginning at 5 p.m. at the Good Earth Home Show, Delta Rotary will be staffing the ShelterBox booth to educate all who will listen about the great works of ShelterBox.    Shelter--Warmth--Dignity--Comfort.

Pedro Valera presented the banner of his home rotary club in Cartagena, Spain to President Beth. Cartagena is a port city on the Southeast Spanish Coast and is slightly larger than Eugene at 220,000 people. A major difference is that the city was founded in 227 BC, as compared to Eugene's founding date of 1853. Look for a link to Pedro's home Rotary Club on our website or visit directly!

Being a Rotarian means "linking arms."  There is very little we can do as individuals unless one has a bank account on par with Bill and Melinda Gates!  With the Rotary Foundation and our own Delta Rotary Foundation, we are able to combine our resources and contribute to significant projects.  Delta Rotary has recently "linked arms" with The Rotary Club of Cottage Grove to help fund a literacy project in an impoverished area of Rural Thailand.  See their open facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Library-for-Kids-and-Family-Project-RID-3340/400669676700399  (copy to your browser).  Delta Rotary will be joining other Lane County clubs this year financially and in spirit to accomplish projects overseas and in our own back yard.  Link arms!  ImageImageImage

Twenty Six Years ago.... The Washington Redskins won Superbowl XXII and the Los Angeles Dodgers won the World Series.  Eli Lilly introduced Prozac to the public and Snapple was showing up on grocery store shelves.  Rotary began to induct women and CDs outsold vinyl records for the first time ever.  Meanwhile, a group of President-Elects from Eugene-Springfield were attending the PETS (President Elect Training Seminar) and dreamed up The Great Rotary Duck Race.  In the 26 years since, the Duck Race has grown to be a Lane County Event focusing on Child Abuse Prevention and Intervention in our own backyard.  While Rotary does great work internationally, this project is right here, right now with our very own community.   Delta Rotarians, pick up your ticket books to sell and make a difference on our home turf.  This year's recipients are:  Bridgeway House, Looking Glass, Jasper Mountain Safe Center, Family Relief Nursery of Cottage Grove, Direction Services and CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates).

One of the great works of Eugene Delta Rotary is the “leg up” we provide in college scholarships through the Delta Rotary Foundation.  The Foundation is funded by private donations by Rotarians, by donations made in remembrance of loved ones, and by funds raised by the Club, most prominently the annual Delta Rotary Auction.  President Steve Brous and the 2012-13 Delta Rotary Club Foundation provided NINE scholarships to assist these students in their college pursuits to a public Oregon University.  The Delta Rotary Foundation is a 501-(C)-3 that is independent of The Rotary Foundation.  It is our own pot of gold and our Board of Trustees are all Deltarians:  Bruce Hight, Board President, Terri Baker, Steve Brous, Janet Brown, Harold Foutz, Mike Hartwig, Robin Matthews, Kevin McAndrews, Tad Scharpf & Beth Sheehan.

 

If you are interested in learning more about scholarships, just ask any of the board members listed above for future applications and deadlines.

Last Friday was our yearly hand-over meeting, when we celebrated the accomplishments of our year under President Steve Brous, and rang-in the new Rotary Year by handing the gavel to our new President, Beth Sheehan.  Last but not least, Deltarian Howard DeVore accepted the Rotarian of the Year award for his service and leadership demonstrated in the House Committee and beyond. In addition to a solid work ethic, Howard embodies the Rotarian values of Service Above Self, and is truly a role model for all of us at Delta Rotary. Thank you and congratulations Howard!

Dear ShelterBox Supporter,

As you know, a devastating two-mile wide tornado has torn through Oklahoma City suburbs with winds of up to 200 mph, destroying neighborhoods and schools.

The city of Moore is the worst hit. According to recent reports, 24 people have lost their lives, including nine children due to the collapse of multiple schools. Reports show debris everywhere, houses destroyed, upturned vehicles, street signs gone and power shortages.

As the search and rescue phase continues, a ShelterBox Response Team is en route to Oklahoma to begin our assessment and determine how we can best assist vulnerable families. In the following days, the team will be focusing on the most impacted areas to identify unmet shelter and non-food needs.

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this catastrophe. For the latest updates, please visit www.shelterboxusa.org or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.


ShelterBox is also currently responding to other disasters worldwide, including the Syrian refugee crisis, flooding in Uganda, and earthquake in Pakistan.

Donations to support our relief efforts can be made online or by calling 941-907-6036.

Thank you for your continued support and making our response possible.

Sincerely,


Emily S. Sperling
President, ShelterBox USA

Eugene Delta received an award from Holt International Children's services for the support our club has given to the organization over the years.  Past President Tucker - seen here handing the award off to President Steve - accepted the award on behalf of Delta at the Holt International Auction that was held last week.  Many thanks to all those Delta Rotarian's that have helped Holt over the years.  This is another example of the integral and important role Delta Members play in our community.
