What's Happening at Maryborough Rotary?

Here is our hard working District conference committee planning for the conference on March 20th to 22nd 2015. The committee has been meeting approximately monthly for 18 months or so and now is meeting every fortnight. Many thanks to all participants for their commitment to this big task of running a District Conference in Maryborough.
 

 
 
Hi Rotarians,
A packed night with members, partners, guests, and friends enjoying a fascinating evening last week.
 
Rotarians Judy Dennis and Lindsay Thomas from Ballarat Rotary presented information for members assisting at the forthcoming Ballarat Swap Meet – the biggest swap meet in the Southern hemisphere.  
Dr Luke Fulleron, our special guest speaker  gave a riveting presentation
Luke is a local boy who completed all of his schooling at the East school and the High school and is now residing in Toronto, where he is practicing at one of Canada's top sports clinics. Luke is also one of the physiotherapists for the world professional tennis tour and is at the Sydney tournament at the moment.
He is home for a short break with his parents and says “I am still proud to call Maryborough home”.
Luke gave an overview of his ambitions, aspirations and goals as a young local lad.  Through his studies, many at advanced levels, by grabbing every opportunity available to him, often outside his comfort zone and by working his way up through the system, he is now based in Toronto and is one of 10 highly qualified physiotherapists
/osteopaths who are employed by the ATP and World Professional Tennis tournaments. 
He provided in-depth perspectives on some of the world’s best tennis players; how they are as individuals, their degrees of professionalism, individual quirks, drive and concentration levels.

Rotary releases $34.8 million for polio immunization activities worldwide
Rotary International released an additional $34.8 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds, whose release was announced 20 January, will be used by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for polio immunization and surveillance activities in the 10 countries, as well as to provide technical assistance in several other countries in Africa. The grants include $8.1 million for Nigeria to support its final push to eradicate the disease. Nigeria...
President-elect urges Rotary members to ‘Be a Gift to the World’
Using their talents, expertise, and leadership, Rotary members worldwide are asked to be gifts to the world this upcoming 2015-16 Rotary year. Rotary International President-elect K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran called Sunday's address to incoming district governors the "most significant moment of my life." "All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift: one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become -- and Be a Gift to the World," said Ravindran, revealing his presidential theme at the annual five-day training meeting...
Man in iron lung discovers Rotary
One might think a man living with polio in an iron lung would know about Rotary. But it wasn't until Paul Alexander had a business meeting with a member in Duncanville, Texas, earlier this year that he learned Rotary fights to eradicate the very disease that left him almost completely paralyzed. "I was completely blown away by the idea. For all these years, I didn't know the work they were doing," says Alexander, a practicing attorney in Dallas. "It's such a perfect fit for me." Alexander contracted polio during a major U.S. outbreak of the disease in the late 1950s when he was six years old...
Alumni recognized for expanding mental health services and supporting Rotary’s work
Dr. Geetha Jayaram has dedicated her life to helping people in her native India and the United States overcome the torment of severe depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, and other mental illnesses. Jayaram is a psychiatrist and associate professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. Her work expanding access to mental health services is much needed. Depression affects at least 350 million people and is the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. "In India, there is no mental...
Rotary’s innovative tribute to polio eradication in India breaks Guinness world record
To eradicate polio in India, Rotary members displayed impressive coordination and commitment. So it should come as no surprise that Rotary members in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, were able to mobilize more than 40,000 people to create the world's largest human national flag. The tribute to the polio eradication effort qualified as a Guinness World Records-breaking achievement. "What impressed me most was that all of Rotary was represented: Rotaractors, Interactors, and Rotarians," says RI President Gary C.K. Huang, who participated in the event along with his wife, Corinna, and other Rotary senior...
