TEE SHIRTS FOR NICARAGUA
Posted by Gig Langston

A group of Angelina College Rotaractors visited Nicaragua this summer and came back with a simple yet profound idea to help Nicaraguan mothers and the children of the dump. A tee shirt can be cut front and back, hemmed and turned into a diaper. Nicaraguan youths are trained to operate foot pedal powered sewing machines so the cutting and hemming are taken care of locally. This becomes a double hit, the children earn income and Nicaraguan mothers have access to inexpensive diapers. Where does the supply of tee shirts come from? From you and me! We all have tee shirts past their prime that end up as a dust cloth and we all have participated in functions at which a tee shirt was passed out. Between now and the District 5910 Conference in April, our Rotary clubs are asked to collect tee shirts from members and bring the pile to the District Conference in Bryan/College Station. Your shirts can be colored, have a design on them or plain white, so clean out your closet. Mr. Frank Huezo of Greenworld Imports will take care of shipping our tees to Nicaragua.
Club Presidents; check the required “Enhance Humanitarian Service Through Our Foundation” of the Presidential Citation. Your club will complete the international service project relating to maternal and child health and economic and community development by participating in the tee shirt drive.

Collect your clean t-shirts in clear/white garbage bags and have a member deliver them to the District Conference in Bryan/College Station April 25-27, 2014 at the College Station Hilton. Volunteers at the Conference Registration Table will help with collection of the t-shirts.

Confucius once said: "It is better to light a single candle, than to sit and curse the darkness." Although the Chinese philosopher died nearly 2,400 years before Rotary was founded, RI President 2014/15 Gary C.K. Huang calls him "the world's first Rotarian." Inspired by his teachings, Huang chose Light Up Rotary as his theme for 2014-15.

"There are so many problems in the world, so many people that need help. Many people say, 'There's nothing I can do.' So they sit there doing nothing. Meanwhile everything stays dark," Huang told the 537 district governors and their spouses and partners who are attending the 2014 International Assembly in San Diego, California.

"We Live in the present, We Dream of the future, But we Learn from the past."  Have a question about Paul Harris, or something that happened in 1952 in Rotary? The Rotary Global History Fellowship website probably has trhe answer. 
Take a tour of this awesome site and you'll come away with a better understanding of who we are, and how we became
the global community that we are today.

Important News to all Club Presidents/Club Secretaries and Attendance Managers! ClubRunner enabled automatic database integration with Rotary International on November 1, 2010. This means that all member data updates (which your club chooses to share) will be automatically updated on Member Access at RI's Headquarter databases within 2 hours, without the need to send any email notifications or enter the data via rotary.org. This is a powerful new tool for Rotarians to streamline reporting to Rotary International. Each club must "Opt-In" in order to take advantage of this service.
Instructions for Opting In are available on this site on the admin page, once you sign in.
