June 6 program:

Kids With Confidence was stated in 2005 by Xavier DeCaire on the same model of Operation Smile to enable youth throughout the Delaware Valley with highly visible facial and physical defects when insurance would not cover their expenses. Board member John Horne said the 7-10 surgeries per year typically cost about $7,000, with much of the expenses donated by doctors. Kids With Confidence offers palliative care and surgical interventions as well as contributing funds to local organizations that cater to children with disabilities.

 

June 13 program:

Director of Innovation for College Health Science at STAR campus, Dr. Martha Hall paired her passion for fashion design with a degree in bio- mechanics to treat people with disabilities as special human beings. From infants with special needs to sports players with injuries, the Innovation lab designs clothing that helps them function while looking cool and smart. Cue Minder, a wearable alerting devise is being designed by student Danielle Kempner, as a futuristic bracelet, like a Smart watch, that will remind those in nursing care to perform simple daily functions such as drink water, go to the bathroom, take medications, exercise, and prepare for mealtimes. Great ideas are coming to fruition at STAR campus.

Rotary Foundation gets highest rating – again!

May 30 program:

The international, non-partisan citizens Climate Action Committee for Global Change is working at the local, state and national levels to impose solutions that will combat the effects of climate change due to increased greenhouse gases. The Delaware group, under Beth Chajes,is working on a solution that will drive large scale change quickly, use incentives that support choices, and be healthy for the planet and the economy. Their proposed solution is to impose a fee on carbon content at the source, return 100% net revenue to households as a dividend, have a carbon border adjustment (allows added price to imports), and limit regulatory adjustments. The benefits will reduce carbon emissions by 40% in the first 12 years, deliver dividends to individuals, create a healthier environment, and produce more jobs.

May 23 program:

Safety and privacy on the social media is all about your own mindeset. Jamie Luck, as an employee of Linkedin, can see how hackers can get into your personal data. Not important to you? Even if you have nothing to hide, you should care about Internet privacy. We should all be considerate in knowing how to use the Internet, know the sites you are engaging with, choose software wisely, install ad blockers, consider the reputation of websites you browse, and do no place blind trust in the Internet. Jamie suggests using social media as a way to connect with people in real life.

What is your Ah Ha moment? When did you realize THIS IS WHAT ROTARY IS ALL ABOUT?

For our members, our wake up moments were as varied as our membership. Each had an opportunity to share the moment they realized that Rotary is a unique experience and tugs at the heartstrings. For some it was about particular projects, for others it was the fellowship and relationships they have built. In any case, our session proved there is something in Rotary for everyone.

May 9 program:

Gateway Lab School, a public charter school in Wilmington, has specialized programs that integrate the arts into the educational curriculum. Covering grades 3 through 8, the school is based on a model Lab School of Washington where the students are encouraged to observe and draw conclusions. 62% of the students have Individualized Educational Profiles (IEP) which help direct the child to learn at his or her own rate and ability. Director Catherine Dolan refers to the students as “quirky birds” who are encouraged to be HERO’s and advocate for themselves in their own uniqueness.

What is your “ah ha!” moment?

At today’s meeting we will work on our “elevator speeches” and our “ah ha!” moments.

 

An elevator ride is the amount of time you have to answer someone’s question, “What is Rotary?” You cannot go into detail, but you still need to give them an answer that will peek their curiosity and want to know more.

 

You “ah ha!” moment is when, after joining Rotary, you suddenly realized, “So this is what being a Rotarian is all about!”

RI Council on Legislation Changes of Importance

Every three years the Rotary International Council on Legislation meets to discuss possible changes to RI’s processes and procedures. The changes approved this year that are of importance to us include:

  • Beginning July 1, makeups can be applied to any meeting missed in the Rotary year, not just 14 days before or after your missed meeting.
  • The treasurer’s report should be given at the club’s annual meeting.
  • Classification system is now gone, replaced by “occupation.”
  • Rotaract clubs are now full members of RI and members are eligible to serve on RI Boards and apply for grants.
  • RI will change its tax status from a 501( c )4 to 501( c )3, thus saving about $700,000/yr in taxes. It can now accept gifts and corporate contributions. There are about 600 Rotary clubs that have 501( c ) 3 status.

April 25 program:

The first group of 120  boxes were filled with special treats for recipients of Meals on Wheels. The Birthday Boxes will be delivered to the recipients on their birthdays, along with their daily meal delivery. Boxes included a small lap warmer, word puzzle game book, small writing notebook, snack pack, pack of cookies, mints, a patriotic pinwheel, and a birthday card. Wrapped with a ribbon, the boxes sport a birthday greeting sticker. The boxes will be stored at Bayside Transportation until days of delivery. Thank you Paul Keely and Steve Worden for chairing this project.

The 2019 Report to the Community is here! And looks better than ever. The move to glossy paper adds heft and a certain level of professionalism any magazine would offer. Thank you to everyone, especially Cindi Viviano, project chair, for making our 20th Report better than ever. More than $47,000 was raised in advertising sales.

April 18 program:

The old Downtown Newark Partnership has morphed into a new organization that includes businesses, community leaders, residents, university and non-profits all across the Greater Newark region, not just Main Street businesses. Mayor Polly Sierer updated us on the four main committees of the combination civic/chamber structure: non-profit will develop a database of all  non-profits serving the city; community engagement will give all constituents’ an opportunity to have their voices heard; economic enhancement will bring business owners from all across the city, not just those on Main street; events committee will bring new and fresh ideas as well as outsiders to the city.

April 11 program:

In 2009 Sara LaFavre, a UD student, founded Lori’s Hands, a community health services learning program where college students volunteer with individuals in the Newark community who are living with chronic illnesses. She saw the challenges her mother endured when dying of breast cancer. Today 180 volunteers visit 110 Newark area clients doing small tasks like light cleaning, grocery shopping, helping make appointments, or offer companionship. The weekly visits of 1-2 hours at a time not only fulfil a tangible task but the volunteers and clients often become close intergenerational friends and an inspiration to the clients. Maggie Ratnayake is director of the program.

Our club will be submitting an application for a district grant to support the training of volunteers with Lori’s Hands. The grant is for three videos which will be made available to the students for on-going training on how to deal with their client’s issues.

April 4 program:

Planning for her year as our fearless leader, Evelyn Hayes led a discussion on potential projects or activities that members would like us to consider for 2019-2020. Suggestions included: doing a service project on Community Day, working with kids aging out of foster care, attracting more women into the club, get-together at a park event, antique auto show, something to replace Downes homework club, a sustainable project that we can initiate and other organizations participate in, expending work with JA, work with schools on their public events, involve PTA’s on dictionary project, career fair, bring more people to Main Street during time of construction, bike project????

Also suggested was more press coverage and recognition for our work in the community.

If you have any other ideas, please send to Evelyn before next week so she can compile the list.
