Home Page Stories

In 1905 Paul Harris and three of his business associates formed a club and began meeting for business networking purposes, camaraderie and friendship. They called their club “Rotary” because they rotated the meetings between each of their businesses. It soon became clear to these Rotary members that they could and should expand their purpose to include public works. Their first project was building public toilets in their hometown of Chicago.
As more Rotary clubs were established and grew, so did their public service projects based on the Rotary motto “Service Above Self” and as a way to promote, fund and recognize those who participated in such projects, the “Paul Harris Fellowship” program was established.
The Fellowship program now provides funds for District and Global Grants to local clubs, including Dublin A.M., as well as educational opportunities, food, potable water, health care, immunizations and  shelter for millions of people around the world.
Over the years Dublin A.M. has received many Grants from the Paul Harris program – to mention only two - our Dictionary Project, providing dictionaries to all 3rd graders in Dublin and to our International Committee providing a library for a school in Turkey. There are, of course, others.
Over the next weeks you will have the opportunity to join 77 Dublin A.M. members to become a Paul Harris fellow or as many have done – to become a multiple Paul Harris Fellow.
It takes a commitment of $200 in each of four years to become a Paul Harris Fellow. At the end of your commitment the Club will add $200 for a total of $1,000. That money is forwarded to Rotary International which invests it for three year at the end of which 50% of the accumulated funds are returned to our District 6690 to fund District Funds, such as those mention above, and Global Grants. The other 50% is used by Rotary International to fund larger worldwide projects.
As a bonus, for every Paul Harris Fellowship you achieve Rotary will provide an additional Fellowship for you award to anyone you designate – such as Ron Morgan recently gave to Cindy Groeniger in  honor of her work on Rotary projects or the three Susan Robenalt awarded to Dwight Seeley, Wolf Lant and Sue Burness for their work on the Blarney Bash.  Such awards can be given by you to anyone, not just fellow Rotarians – a spouse, a friend or any one you feel exemplifies the Rotary Motto of ‘Service Above Self.”
I hope you will consider becoming a Paul Harris Fellow or a multiple Paul Harris Fellow and uphold the tradition of Rotary and most of all help those in need at home and around the world. Thank you for your consideration.
Dave Holliday – President – Dublin A.M. Charitable Foundation.

We are still accepting applications for the upcoming Honor Flight. Veterans of the all services during the World War II, Korean, and Vietnam conflicts are eligible (need not have seen shots fired in anger). For more information, please contact Dave Williamson. For an application, look for "Honor Flight 2015" under "Download Rotary Forms" on the right of our homepage.

Thanks to Kent Underwood for updating our New Member Checklist for this Rotary year. Our new members may visit the "New Member" site on our page to get a handy checklist of the landmarks to become a fully fledged Rotarian. The list is also on the home page under "Download Rotary Forms" (look to the right and lower on the page).

In this segment of the member spotlight, we hear from Amy Snow and Ron Morgan.  Amy and Ron, thanks for sharing! Click here to see their presentation and find out whose fault it is that Amy has come to Dublin to hate teh Buckeyes.

Let's find out more about two active and fun Rotarians.  Your editor humbly apologizes for the darkness of the video.

The International Services Committee recently gave an overview of their many activities, bringing literacy, clean water, health assistance, and Rotary's hopes for peace and understanding literally all over the world. Click here to see their inspiring presentation.

Three speakers recently spoke in favor of levies that will be on the ballot this fall. Because no organized opposition to the levies has emerged, Rotary did not, as it typically would, bring in opposing viewpoints. Let's listen to their presentations and make up our own minds:
David Royer, CEO of ADAMH (Alcohol, Drugs,and Mental Health), spoke of that organization's renewal levy:
Tom Stalf, CEO of Columbus Zoo, discussed that institution's plans if voters renew its levy:
Chief Alec O'Connell spoke about Washington Township Fire Department's Renewal Levy:
All presented eloquent cases for the services their organziations provide. Now the decision is in your hands.

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.

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...
