August Focus - Membership and Club Extension

New members, and all members, will find Rotary attractive when they understand that Rotary supports six areas of focus:

DG Jim's August Message

Inspirational moment 

“Once upon a time, when women were birds,
there was the simple understanding that
to sing at dawn and to sing at dusk
was to heal the world through joy.

The birds still remember
what we have forgotten,
that the world is meant to be
celebrated.”


~Terry Tempest Williams

Canadiana 

THE UNITED STATES–CANADA BORDER IS the longest in the world. It stretches 5,525 miles from Maine to Alaska, traversing land, sea, and untouched wilderness. As such, you might assume this colossal border would be left untouched by humankind, merely an invisible line on a map. But you’d be wrong.

Every year, the average American taxpayer pays half of a cent to the International Boundary Commission (IBC) for the sole purpose of deforesting every inch of the U.S.–Canada border. 

With an annual budget of $1,400,000, the IBC ensures that the boundary will never be just an imaginary line.

Known as “the Slash,” this treeless zone is 20 feet wide and covers everything from narrow isolated islands to steep hillsides. Spanning national forests and towering mountains, the vast majority of the Slash is so remote that it will never receive any visitors (aside from a handful of bears), yet it is still painstakingly maintained every six years with grueling hours of exhausting manual labor.


And our national anthem.

Recorded in celebration of Canada’s Sesquicentennial Anniversary.

Comments from our guests and members 

Members and guests attending our weekly meetings are very important to us. Based on your comments we are able to produce many more educational, inspiring and entertaining weekly meetings.

Following are some of the comments we have received. Would you please send us your comments?   

July 3.  Another wonderful meeting!  Informative and fun!
-- Sharon Blaker, E-Club of Canada One

Attended the regular RECCO meeting on July 6 featuring main presentation by Shola Richards speaking on “Ubuntu.”  Ubuntu – meaning “I am because we are” is a fantastic word that we could include in our Four Way Test.
-- Keith Evans, E-Club of Canada One, District 5370

July 5. Thank you for Carol Daniel's talk "I knew you were black". Very apropos for the times.
-- David Werrett, E-Club of Canada One.

Ubuntu - it’s going to be my new favourite word!!
-- Vicki Horsfield, E-Club of Canada One, District 5370

July 6.  I really enjoyed the Hot Scots drumline video.  Sent it to my sons, who are both drummers and of Scottish descent! Also loved Shola's Ted Talk about Ubuntu and the power of our shared humanity - such an important theme to remember in this sometimes divisive, disconnected time.

The talk reminded me of the importance and value of participating in something bigger than myself to effect positive change. Being a part of Creating Opportunities for Guatemalans, and now this Rotary Club, are two ways I'm working to do that and feel grateful for my colleagues in both organizations. Namaste to all.
-- Andrea Chisholm, E-Club of Canada One, District 5370

Announcements


September 12, 2020


***


Jennifer E. Jones, a member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland, Ontario, Canada, has been nominated to become Rotary International’s president for 2022-23, a groundbreaking selection that will make her the first woman to hold that office in the organization’s 115-year history.


Jones will officially become president-nominee on 1 October if no other candidates challenge her.

Jones says she sees Rotary’s Action Plan as a catalyst for increasing Rotary’s impact.


“As we reflect upon our new strategic priorities, we could have never envisioned that our ability to adapt would become our North Star during what is inarguably the most profound time in recent history,” Jones said in her vision statement. 

“Silver linings rise out of the most challenging circumstances. Using metric-driven goals, I will harness this historic landscape to innovate, educate, and communicate opportunities that reflect today’s reality.”

Food for thought 


"Sherra Profit, whose surname carries a certain irony given her position, as she leaves what might be the most thankless job in government: the taxpayers' ombudsman.

"In her final annual report, where Profit reflects on her time in the role, look for the graphic that illustrates the difference between equality, equity, and fairness. Top marks for a bureaucratic sense of fair play."  (Maclean's.ca)
