Well, sort of.
 
Starting May 25th, the Dublin Arts Council is going to have a display of rare photographs from influential photographer Eddie Adams, whose shots of the Vietnam Conflict are a part of our national memory.

Don't forget the City's Memorial Service on May 25th, beginning at 11 am. We paying special tribute to Vietnam vets, including parade, memorial service, and complimentary lunch, followed by shuttles going from downtown to the Arts Council from 1 to 3 pm to view the Adams exhibit.

Principal Brian Blum and School Media Specialist [i.e. librarian] Marisa Saelzler visited Dublin A.M. to thank the club for the many contributions made to Daniel Wright Elementary this year. They are most grateful for the weekly speakers books we give them, our support for their book fair in which kids get free books. our support for their bike rodeo that provides kids bikes and helmets, and the Celebration of Literacy on which we partnered this year with Daniel Wright PTO, Dublin Branch Library, the Friends of Columbus Metropolitan Library, The Columbus Zoo, and COSTCO. They presented the club with thank-you notes from the kids and explained how we are helping a generation of young minds become better readers and life-long learners. Ove 20 languages are spoken at the school, and Dublin A.M. is a part of making it a unified school where great learning takes place. Click here to see parts of their presentation.

William Murdoch, the CEO of Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, presented on Insight 2050 (https//www.getinsight2050.org) about the demographic changes expected in Central Ohio in the next 30 years and the likely effects of those changes in housing, retail, and transportation. Smart developers and employers should plan for changes away from single family houses towards mixed use developments, foregrounding "Infill" (revitalizing currently existing spaces rather than building new strip malls increasingly distant from urban centers). Dublin's Bridge Street Corridor Plan is looking very forward facing in light of Murdoch's presentation.

How to increase the number of Paul Harris Society members in your club
As president of the Rotary Club of High Point, North Carolina, USA, Joel Gentry wanted to lead by example.

"If Rotary did not take on the challenge of eradicating polio, how many more millions of children around the world would have died or been crippled by this disease? Who could have done that if not Rotary?" Imagining what the world would be like without Rotary...
Rotary, USAID collaboration improves sanitation facilities in Ghana
According to a 2012 report by UNICEF and the World Health Organization, Ghana has made great strides in providing its people with clean drinking water. But access to better sanitation has lagged. Only about 14 percent of Ghanaians have access to improved facilities, compared with the 54 percent target set for 2015 by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Addressing the issue isn't simple, as pit latrines need emptying, toilets need maintenance, and promoting hygiene requires education. The H2O Collaboration, a partnership between Rotary and the U.S. Agency for International...
