After a summer filled with rain, Dublin's Irish eyes were smiling under perfect weather for the Irish Festival.  Dublin A.M. was on hand to do our part for the city and perhaps a hundred thousand guest and, of course, to earn a little green to continue our work in the community.  We worked hard but had a great time and impressed our city contacts, who said we have the beverage delivery and control system "totally wired." A special thanks to Bonnie Coley-Malir for her volunteer coordination, to the redoubtable Andy Keeler--a great combination of project manager, forklift, cheerleader, and chef--and to the dozens of Rotarians who gave of their time, sweat, and good humor to help the Club.   
 

 
 
As members of our great Club, one thing we can all say that we have in common is that we remember the day when we were Inducted as a new member into our Club.  I was fortunate to be Inducted during an “off site” Friday meeting at our Columbus Zoo.  You can be assured that even after 15 years of being a member I can recall that day very well.
 
As we progress into a new Rotary year, we would like to grow and enhance even more our Membership Committee.  We are looking for great ideas on how to enhance things like:
 
  •        Communicating with new members so that they feel welcome to our Club and engage in Fellowship events outside Friday meetings to meet members of our Club.
  •        What can we do to ensure we are exhibiting behaviors to make Rotary workable in today’s world.
  •        Communicate with perspective Members of our Club to provide them accurate and up to date information about joining our Club.
  •        Enhance the value of coming to a Friday meeting and a Member’s engagement to our Club.
 
The time commitment will be very minimal – possibly 1 hour per month.  If you are interested please give me a call or send me an email to pwbgcush@gmail.com.  I would be happy to share additional ideas and thoughts.
 
In Rotary,
Pete Cushnie

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...
Meet our polio partners
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian Eradicating polio is a complex job. Since 1988, we’ve collaborated with the World Health Organization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and UNICEF to tackle the disease through our Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Here’s how our roles break down. The Strategist: WHO The World Health Organization (WHO) coordinates the management and administration of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative and provides technical and operational support to ministries of health in countries around the world. WHO is responsible for monitoring...
Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Australian students take opportunity by the horns
The rules of the Shaftesbury Rodeo Academy are simple: no school, no rodeo. It’s a message that teenagers who attend school at Bisley Farm, most of whom have never attended any school regularly, take seriously. Because come Friday night, these aspiring rodeo heroes want to join their friends to ride bulls for a heart-stopping eight seconds, if they last that long. The school in rural Queensland, Australia, also teaches the boys, who are of the Wakka Wakka Aboriginal people, basic academics and farming skills, including how to care for crops and livestock. It’s a fairly common form of...
Illiteracy traps adults, and their families, in poverty
Around the world, millions of adults are unable to read or write, and therefore struggle to earn a living for themselves and their families. Even in the United States, with its considerable resources, there are 36 million adults who can’t read better than the average third-grader, according to the international nonprofit ProLiteracy. In Detroit, Michigan, a widely cited 2003 survey conducted by the National Institute for Literacy found that almost half of residents over age 16 were functionally illiterate -- unable to use reading, speaking, writing, and computer skills in everyday life....
