1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?

1. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service
2. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society.
3. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life.
4. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

     Welcome to the new Rotary year!     I don’t know where the time goes – it seems just yesterday that I was watching Dan take over as District Governor and ask us to “Engage Rotary and Change Lives”.    Now we can thank him for his excellent leadership during the 2013-2014 Rotary year as he joins the exclusive club of Past District Governors.    
     I have to begin with a very hearty THANK YOU to all the outgoing Rotary leaders, club presidents, and committee chairs!    You have all been so generous in sharing your talents and abilities to lead the clubs in District 6270.    Your efforts are appreciated by all of us and I hope you all will continue to find ways to “Light Up Rotary” by sharing your unique talents.

     Nigeria is closer than ever to eradicating polio, riding a successful effort to reach children in seven northern states at highest risk for the disease.
"Rotarians have [gone] into remote areas of the country by car, canoe, motorbike, and even on foot to ensure every child gets the vaccine," says Rotary's Nigeria PolioPlus Committee Chair Tunji Funsho.
In Katsina state, members of the Nigeria PolioPlus Committee (NPPC) recently met with leaders of two communities notoriously opposed to immunization, mainly on religious grounds and in protest of the lack of basic health care. They persuaded the leaders to endorse vaccination by obtaining government assurance that mobile health camps would provide free checkups, medications, immunization against diseases besides polio, and other services.

The International Curling Fellowship of Rotarians was formed by Rotarians who have a love for the sport of curling.  They are currently looking for Rotarians to form curling teams or individual curlers that would like to be placed on a team to participate in the upcoming Rotary USA Bonspiel, being held in Rice Lake, Wisconsin on October 10-12, 2014.

     The dates for the RI Convention have been changed to June 6th through June 9th.  The dates were changed because the original opening day (Sunday, 7 June) coincided with one of the city's most popular parades. The new start date will dramatically reduce traffic congestion and make it easier for Rotary members to attend the opening plenary sessions. It will also make it convenient to attend our very own Rotary Carnival, a , on Saturday evening.
     Because of this change, some of the events for the RI Convention have also changed.

     Thousands of volunteers recruited and deployed by nonprofit groups have inoculated some 1.4 million children in rebel-held parts of Syria this year, braving shelling and air strikes to combat the disease after an outbreak in October, reports The Washington Post.
A handful of groups active in Syria, united as the ad hoc Polio Control Task Force, won cooperation from opposition fighters to orchestrate the vaccine campaign in the northern part of the country, to which UNICEF and other global aid agencies have had limited access. The effort is supported by a patchwork of local charities, international aid groups, and foreign governments.
     Polio had not been seen in Syria for 15 years before last fall’s outbreak. 
 There have been no confirmed cases in nearly five months. Four volunteers have been killed during the campaign.

Celebrating 38 Years of Excellence

     The 2015 World Affairs Seminar will be held on June 20-26 at Carroll University in Waukesha.  The topic will be "Global Energy - Who's Got the Power?"  The purpose in selecting this theme is to assist the delegate in the process of connecting their life experience to the experience of the seminar - and in that process, find a connection to others sharing in the seminar.

     President Gary C.K. Huang is encouraging clubs and districts to sponsor or participate in a Rotary Day event in 2014-15 to introduce non-Rotarians to Rotary.  District Governors are encouraged to award clubs that undertake such events this Rotary year.
     "The Rotary Day concept is a simple one:  Hold a fun, informal event in your community for the non-Rotary public and use it as an opportunity to introduce them to Rotary.  It's that easy," Huang says.  "Rotary Days can help your club drive up interest in membership, strengthen your club's relationships with local institutions and community members, and improve Rotary's image in your community."

Polio eradication efforts are moving the world closer than ever to becoming polio free.  Afghanistan, one of three remaining polio-endemic countries along with Nigeria and Pakistan, had just 14 cases of polio in 2013, compared with 37 in 2012.  Nigeria reported 53 cases last year, down significantly from 122 the previous year.  Pakistan is the only endemic country where the number of cases rose in 2013, to 93 from 58 in 2012.  In response to the continued challenges, community and religious leaders there have expressed support for polio eradication campaigns.
