Gifted Kids Book Series

Giftedness is 24/7.  It cannot be turned off.  It can’t happen only between 9am-11am on Tuesdays.  What if you were gifted and there was nobody like you?  Would you want to stand out like a bright star against a velvety night sky? Or would you choose to hide by camouflaging your abilities?

Gloria van Donge has written a series of books about a family of five gifted cheetah cubs is designed to provide a few snapshots of the world of the gifted and talented child.

While written and illustrated on a child’s level, they also help adults become aware of some of the issues a gifted child could face.

The Role of the District Governor

District governors provide leadership, motivation, and guidance to Rotary clubs under the general supervision of the RI Board of Directors. Governors act as officers of RI, fostering achievement in their district at the club level.

Districts nominate governors 24-36 months before the governors take office.

Governors-nominee are elected at the RI Convention and serve as governors-elect for 12 months prior to taking office.

Responsibilities

During their term of service, governors:

  • Strengthen existing Rotary clubs, organize new clubs, and promote membership growth
  • Issue a monthly letter to each club president and secretary in the district
  • Support The Rotary Foundation and serve as a district and RI spokesperson, when appropriate
  • Hold a district conference and other district meetings
  • Ensure that district nominations and elections are conducted in accordance with the RI Constitution and Bylaws and established policies of RI

Visiting clubs

Each year, governors visit every Rotary club in the district to draw attention to important Rotary issues and provide special attention to weak or struggling clubs. The purpose of these visits is also to motivate Rotarians to participate in service activities and to personally recognize the outstanding contributions of Rotarians in the district. Visits may be conducted individually or with several clubs at the same time.

Is Retirement What I Thought it Would Be

As we have recently introduced the '3 Minutes on My Vocation', we thought it could be fun to hear from our retired members.

We're looking for about 8 volunteers from retired members to speak about their retirement and answer the question:

"Is Retirement What I Thought it Would Be."

This will be a light-hearted look at retirement and for those still working, might even get some tips on making the most of it!

Let Megyn know by email if you are willing to one of the eight speakers please.

VOLUNTEERS TO DATE:

Arnaldo, Chris R, James, Bernie, Judy, Merv

Emergency Shelters

Maddel is proud proud to have successfully pioneered the transition in emergency and recovery shelters and housing from short term tent shelters to transportable, light-weight, solid wall, self supporting, flat pack structures.  The result is structures that deliver the capacity to empower calamity survivors to take ownership of their own recovery. The MADDEL systems are already being seen as the product that can revolutionize disaster recovery and socialized housing. Most importantly, they are more affordable than our competitors.

Alan McGaw is Maddel's CEO and International Business Development.  He will be presenting to us on Tuesday morning.
