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...
Member interview: Jay Cook helps young people through Rotary Youth Exchange
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian A Rotarian for nearly three decades, Jay Cook has helped hundreds of young people broaden their horizons through Rotary Youth Exchange. Recently, while working for the nonprofit Water Missions International, he’s turned his attention to bringing safe water and sanitation solutions to developing countries and disaster-stricken areas. Cook is a member of the Rotary Club of Charleston Breakfast and the Water and Sanitation Rotarian Action Group. THE ROTARIAN: How did you become involved with Rotary Youth Exchange? COOK: My club was hosting a young...
Technology: To please in a pod(cast)
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian When I was a college student in Wisconsin in the 1970s, those of us who worked at the 10-watt radio station hoped our signal would reach not only the 1,500 students on the Beloit College campus and the 35,000 residents of the town of Beloit but also the people in the cars and trucks passing by on the interstate 3 miles to the east – and possibly, late at night, the 150,000 who lived in the bustling metropolis of Rockford, Ill., 20 miles to the south. Some of us hoped to get jobs in radio after we graduated, and there was even talk about starting...
Polio: The Rotarian Conversation with Aseefa Bhutto Zardari
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian Before her family was forced into exile, before her mother was assassinated, before her father became president, Aseefa Bhutto Zardari was known for something simpler, but in some ways equally powerful: In 1994, she became the first child in Pakistan to receive the oral polio vaccine, as part of the country’s first National Immunization Day. Benazir Bhutto, then prime minister, gave the drops to her daughter herself, a compelling endorsement of the nascent campaign. “I was a baby at the time, so I don’t remember it,” says Bhutto Zardari, now 22. “...
Pakistan's progress: Snapshots from the polio campaign
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian Nearly 90 percent of the world’s polio cases last year occurred in Pakistan. But the country is making dramatic progress in its quest to eradicate the disease: Cases are down by almost 70 percent to date compared with 2014, owing partly to military interventions that year in Taliban-controlled North Waziristan, which have allowed vaccinators to reach hundreds of thousands of children who were previously inaccessible. Improved government leadership, the introduction of inactivated polio vaccine in high-risk districts, and vaccinations at transit...
