Episode: #14 – Rotary Club Radio – Camille Hardman & Ron Hunt, Tully Rotary – Big Dreamers Documentary

I interviewed Camille Hardman from Barking Cat Productions and Ron Hunt from the Tully Rotary Club in Northern Queensland Australia. Ron, a 38 year Rotary Veteran, joined me on Rotary Club Radio to talk about this unique project that the Tully Rotary Club did to save their small town from financial disaster. Camille, a film producer, was able to record the story to share with the world.

Tully is a small town known for its heavy rains and successful sugar cane market. However, when Brazil dumped its sugar stockpile on the global market, Tully’s economy sank to the brink of a financial crisis.

At a town meeting called to brainstorm how to save the town, one man proposed something completely crazy ~ to build the worlds Biggest Gumboot in honor of Tully’s record rainfall of 7.98 meters back in 1950.

In a wild turn of events that brought everything together in this funny documentary, we get an inside view of a Rotary Clubs ambitious goals to save their town, a lot of laughs, and a whole lot more.

Rotary Club Radio Episode 011

Featured Segment

Episode: #11 – Greg Hill – Rotary Club of Topeka, KS (Downtown) – Marketing & Technology in Rotary.

In this episode, I’m interviewing Greg Hill, the Public Relations/Media Relations Chair of the Rotary Club of Topeka, KS. Vocationally, Greg is the Assistant Executive Director of the Kansas Dental Association and he uses technology everyday to tell others about what new for dentists ~ so why not do the same to tell others about Rotary?
I ran across Greg on Twitter when I saw a post inviting others to watch his Rotary Club live on the internet. Using the power of “Free Technology,” Greg is getting the message of Rotary out to others and making a difference for Rotary.
Here is a video clip of Greg talking about what Dentist are doing in Kansas to provide free dental care to people who can’t afford to go to the dentist themselves.

Greg shares with me how he uses social media tools like: Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Ustream to educate others about Rotary Club. He talks about the digital newsletter that he helps produce for the Topeka Rotary Club, that eliminated thousands of dollars in printing and mailing costs each year.

The newsletter is online and easy to read like a paper version, but with this new technology he is able to add multi-media effects like audio and video to enhance the reader’s experience.

Consider your club and how they can tackle the technology and marketing issues without all the stress. I hope you enjoy the show!

Rotary Club Radio Episode 004

In this episode: How can your Club help Haiti?

Featured Segment

You probably have heard by now that the Island of Haiti was struck with a massive 7.0 Earthquake a continues to be rattled hourly by aftershocks that are as violent as a 5.0 earthquake. The people of Haiti have been dealt an incredible blow to their community and Rotary has stepped up efforts with Shelter Box to provide over 700 shelter boxes with more to come. A 3 person SRT team is already on the ground and is organizing the immediate distribution of the Shelter Boxes. I had an opportunity to interview a SRT Member ~ David Eby ~ at the District Conference last April and he is currently on deployed in Haiti.

But, what about our Club? What ideas do you have as a club to help in Haiti?

  • Collect money for a Shelter Box?
    – Will sustain 10 people with shelter, water purification, and cooking supplies.
    Cost: $1,000
  • Send Money to District 7020
    – Coordinating relief strategies for Haiti
    – http://www.clubrunner.ca/dprg/dxhome/_home.aspx?did=7020
    Cost: $ Donation
  • Collect Clothes, Shoes, and other supplies to be shipped to Haiti?
    – Needs to be organized and implemented immediately.
    – Possible involvement with schools and other community groups.

We know that the first 48 – 72 hours of an earthquake crisis are very important to the survival of the event. As I write this, we are approaching 68 hours and rescue will begin to turn into recovery efforts. Current estimates of death are between 50,000 – 100,000, but disease and violence will take more in the coming days and weeks. Sanitary conditions are terrible and clean water isn’t widely available ~ except via relief efforts.

The recovery for this region is expected to take years and already there are hundreds of thousands left homeless and afraid to even go back to their homes for fear that another earthquake will strike.
