In response to the many inquiries I have received for information,  you may donate to DISASTER AID USA,  a Rotary-sponsored organization that urgently needs supplies for victims of Hurricane Harvey.
 
Donations are needed and can be made by check mailed to - Disaster Aid USA, 9817 Lanham Severn Road, Lanham, MD 20706 or by visiting their website - www.disasteraidusa.org and clicking-on the Pay Pal button.
 
Disaster Aid USA is a Rotary Project put in place to aid in disasters in the USA and outside the USA (Globally).  A plea has come from Rotarians in TX and LA:
  • Larry Agee, Executive Director, Disaster Aid USA
  • Bob Grill, a PDG, Chair of DA USA, BOD Disaster Aid International member
  • Rotarian Volunteer Wayne Baumier, known to many Rotarians in D7950, is directing the volunteer effort through VOAD, Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster, of which DA USA is a part.  Photos from Wayne will be posted on the District Web site soon in a photo album titled, Hurricane Harvey.
Money is needed for pumps, pressure washers, etc.  The ‘silt’ from the water is very damaging – so the pumps need to pump the water out and the power washers are needed to help clean.  Some areas are losing electricity, so generators are needed along with the fuel for them.  Any money raised for Harvey will be spent on Harvey relief only, as always with DAUSA.
 
Our own two local Rotarians, AG Joe Fillion and AG Ed McDonough are involved in Disaster & Response Relief. 
 
Wayne is helping to direct these efforts.  If you watch the news, much of the relief is coming from VOAD Volunteers like Wayne.
 
Thank you.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
