November is Rotary Foundation Month.

During my visits to more than 70 of our district 5020 Rotary clubs, I have been amazed at the number of Rotary Foundation presentations occurring.  These have included Paul Harris, Paul Harris Society, Major Donor and Benefactor presentations. The generosity and support for the work of Rotary by club members is astounding.

District 5020 is proud to announce that Annemieke Holthuis was selected in Oct 2014 by Rotary International to be a Rotary Peace Scholar.  As a pioneer district from the inception of the Rotary Peace Fellowship program, District 5020 has had a nominee selected almost each year since the inception of the program in 1987-1988.

Once upon a Rotary year-y, while I pondered, growing a bit leery,
Over whether every Rotarian, would give $100 or more.

My mind raced, now more wary, suddenly what I saw was terribly scary.
More so than ghosts or monsters or something rapping at my chamber door.
It was the image of a child, paralyzed, crawling on a dirt floor.
Only this and nothing more.

 Our District has always made excellent use of the opportunity to acquire project funding through the District Block Grant we receive from The Rotary Foundation (TRF) each year.

We have asked all clubs that wish to apply for a Community Grant to do so starting in April before the new Rotary year.  From those applications we build the spending plan that is required by TRF before we receive our allotment.

From District 2050 to 1250 
Our Ambassador Scholar Alexandra Dawley in Brighton, England
Quarterly Report  1 - December 2013


Brighton Living

My First 10 weeks in Brighton have been great. My Flat is located in Kemptown (the artist district) just minutes from the sea. I enjoy walking through the vibrant city and I have (nearly) mastered the art of using the stairs on a moving doubleCdecker bus. I have met a fantastic group of friends. Together we celebrated Diwali (a Hindu celebration of gratitude), and American Thanksgiving last week. I enjoy exploring the local cafes with fellow Rotary Scholar, Cady Tolen, and attending weekly early morning hot yoga/meditation classes in Hove. I also recently had the opportunity to visit a friend in London which reminded me how close I live to "the big city."

World Polio Day is quickly approaching on October 24th. This is a chance for Rotarians, clubs, and districts across the world to come together to fight polio. There are many ways you could mark the day. Dedicate your club meeting to focus on Rotary’s work to end polio that week. Community fundraisers on/around World Polio Day are great a way to raise awareness of our cause in the general public.  You could take the opportunity to remind government officials to support the global commitment to a polio free world- Rotary’s top priority. On World Polio Day, wear your End Polio Now pin and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
