PROGRAM SPEAKER: R.I. District Governor Earl Kilmer
Dougherty Valley Rotary would like to thank 
District 5160Governor
Earl Kilmer
 
for giving an exciting speech on Rotary International, what the foundation can offer us, and what our goalsshould be as a new club! With 24 years in Rotary service, DG EarlKilmer is dedicated to the true cause and origins of Rotary. Hemanages 70 clubs (3 of which are provisional) in District 5160, whichruns from the Oregon border to Davis to Berkeley to San Ramon.There are 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide and 531 districts total. Mr.Kilmer reports directly to the International President 2009-2010,John Kenny of Scotland. As a new club, it is our job and our mission to delve into Rotary International in the next few months and figure out: “What isRotary?” As a Rotarian, each of us now have responsibility towardsour club, our community members, Rotary International, and toourselves! Mr. Kilmer encourages us to individually identify something within Rotary that we are passionate about and to makethe best out of it!He touched on some key resources, such as our presidentand district leaders. But the most important and valuableresource we could possibly have is www.Rotary.organd www.Rotary5160.org. Our district website is a great placeto find out what is happening in the community, how youcan give back, and not to mention, enjoy the fact thatmany R.I. leaders today have sprung from our very ownDistrict 5160!More on Rotary 1.
 
 ABC’s of Rotary: A: Activities- No activities=No progressB: BodiesC: Cash Without the ABC, a Rotary club will die.2.
 
Rotary provides us with funding to do our activities. Our financialcommitments to Rotary are invested, with ending income used topay for admin costs. At the end of 3 years of investments, half goes to world fund, and half comes back to our district to be usedfor local projects to improve our local community 3.
 
P.A.I.N. – Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, and Nigeria are thecountries left with a presence of polio. Rotary’s mission is toeradicate polio around the world. It is Rotary’s responsibility, as anon-political and non-religious organization.4.
 
GIVING to Rotary is a COMMITMENT, NOT A REQUIREMENT.100% of our donations go towards charity Mr. Earl Kilmer ended with a powerful quote by John Kenny, International President 2009-2010
“Rotarians, the future of Rotary is in your hands!”
