NOTE: The LIVE Performance by Staff Benda Bilili – scheduled on September 27, 2011 was CANCELLED.

Here is a little more about the group:

Staff Benda Bilili, is an up and coming group of rising music stars that  will be touring our area.  Most of the members of the group are survivors of Polio. This is a major opportunity to to get the word out in your community of the fact that Rotary is dedicated to the eradication of this deadly disease.

Significantly the group is from the Democratic Republic of the Congo where the disease had been eliminated but has now resurfaced in a major way.

Staff Benda Bilili, has a wonderful sound that is truly unique to our Midwestern ears, especially when you understand the messages they are conveying to the listeners.  Watch the video below where they are singing about the importance of Polio Vaccinations.

Like all the finest African bands, Staff Benda Bilili’s swirling complexity removes the option to do anything but dance … Havana cantina, Kinshasa slum, psychedelic club, or London arts centre—this crack outfit would tear the roof off anywhere.”— Independent

District Governor Judy Freund with Husband JimFeatured Segment

Judy Feund is the District Governor for District 5960.  It was a privilege to interview her and have her here in the Rotary Club Radio Studio to talk about her vision for District 5960.

Some of the important things we discussed are:

  • Her vision for Rotary District 5960 in 2011 – 2012
  • The Foundation
  • The Governor’s Blog
  • Friendship Exchange with Brazil
  • 200 Videos in 200 Days – Public Relations initiative
  • District Conference – April 13 & 14, 2012

Here is an example of the short video that the St. Croix Falls Rotary Club created, which is playing before every movie in the local theater.  It will play over 5,000 times this year!  It was  a Public Relations gift from the theater and the advertising agency that produces the ads.
