Rotary Minute

What is Rotary?

This is a question that we all here from time to time, as we share with others more about the organization that we invest our time, talents, and money into each week.  Would you know how you’d answer the question – “What is Rotary?”

District Fall Training

On September 17th, Rotarians in District 5960 will be given the opportunity to learn how to answer the question, “What is Rotary?” during the Fall Training that is taking place in Hudson Wisconsin.

The Fall Training is an interactive, informative and practical opportunity for Club Presidents, Presidents-Elect, Membership Chairs, Foundation Directors, Grants Subcommittee Chairs, Public Relations Chairs, as well as any Rotarian to learn how to excel at their current and future role in Rotary.

There will be speakers, presentations and break-out sessions focused on membership, public relations, scholarships, and other Foundation programs.

The day will also provide an introduction to the district’s “200 Videos in 200 Days” project.  You can get a chance to be help plan, produce and possibly star in your very own video. This will be a hands-on, interactive day of learning and doing.

There is no charge for event and it comes with a free lunch.  Please go to www.rotary5960.org to find out more.

Rotary Club Radio Host Update

On August 19, 2011 at 5:11am – my wife, Shara, and I welcomed Sawyer Wayne into the world.  Weighing in at 8lbs. 8oz., Sawyer joined his big brother Cade and sisters Ella and Addie.  We’re very lucky to have a photographer in the family, who came to the hospital to take some newborn photos of our little guy.

I appreciate all the well wishes, prayers and support from the Rotary Club Radio community!  Yes, mom and baby are doing great!

Featured Segment

I interview Bill Breon with Students Today Leaders Forever, an independent non-profit organization.  Bill is a member of the Twin Cities Rotaract.  He is the Professional Development Chair for that club.

Students Today Leaders Forever started in 2003 by a group of University of Minnesota students with a desire to server others.  It is currently in 13 states and has worked with over 3,300 students.  Students Today Leaders Forever provides opportunities to server through Community Service Road Trips for young people.

Each Road Trip take 30-40 students to various locations to perform service activities and teach leadership skills and responsibilities.   The trip length depends on the age group (see below).

Middle School – 3 day trip
High School – 5 day trip
College Age – 9 day trip

Students pay a portion of their own way, but the majority of the funds are raised through individual and corporate donors and grants.  Students and staff will stay in the communities they server at facilities like churches, YMCA, Salvation Army, or Hotels.  Services include, but are not limited to environmental clean up projects, visiting nursing homes, cleaning up youth/community centers, and habitat for Humanity projects.

Students Today Leaders Forever has partnered with Rotary Clubs in several states to bring students to help with Club Projects in local communities.  This is a unique opportunities for Rotary Clubs like yours to connect with an organization willing to provide students willing to server in your community at no cost to the club.  I highly recommend you take advantage of this opportunity.
