Rotary Trivia
Ever wonder why the Rotary year begins 1 July? The international convention initially played a key role in determining the start date of our fiscal and administrative year. Rotary’s first fiscal year began the day after the first convention ended, on 18 August 1910. The 191112 fiscal year also related to the convention, beginning with the first day of the 1911 convention on 21 August. At its August 1912 meeting, the Board of Directors ordered an audit of the International Association of Rotary Clubs’ finances. The auditors recommended that the organization end its fiscal year on 30 June to give the secretary and treasurer time to prepare a financial statement for the convention and board, and determine the proper number of club delegates to the convention. The executive committee concurred, and at its April 1913 meeting, designated 30 June as the end of the fiscal year. This also allowed for changes to the schedule for reporting club membership and payments. Even The Rotarian changed its volume numbering system to correspond to the

fiscal year (beginning with vol. 5, July 1914). Rotary continued to hold its annual conventions in July or August until 1917. Delegates to the 1916 event in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, approved a resolution to hold future conventions in June, mainly because of the heat in cities where most of them occurred. The next one was held 17-21 June in Atlanta, Georgia. The term "Rotary year" has been used to signify Rotary’s annual administrative period since at least 1913. An article in The Rotarian that July noted, “The Rotary year that is rapidly drawing to a close has been signalized by several highly successful joint meetings of Clubs that are so situated as to assemble together easily and conveniently.” Since the executive committee's decision in 1913, the end of the Rotary year has remained

Another Momentous Occasion for District 3780


he Joint District Induction and Oathtaking Ceremonies was held on Sunday, July 3, 2011, at the grand ballroom of the Hotel Sofitel Philippine Plaza, CCP Complex, Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City. Needless to say, the event was an astounding success which prompted all present to look to this Rotary Year 2011-2012 as a very promising and productive year for District 3780.

The afternoon was highlighted by the installation of District 3780 Governor Jess Cifra by none other than PRIP Bhichai Rattakul. This momentous event was followed by the new governor’s inaugural address. Thereafter, the others tasked to serve for RY 2011-2012 – district officials and club presidents, including RCCA's very own, Bong Jungco, were inducted as well. The event was capped by a strictly formal evening affair, where members and guests wined and dined in the true spirit of Rotary fellowship.

But primitive man had enemies real as well as imaginary, and they were not subject to priestly sorceries. How strange it is that murder has the sanction of law in one and only one of the human relationships, and that is the most important of all, that of nation to nation. Ideas have unhinged the gates of empires. In the clashes between ignorance and intelligence, ignorance is generally the aggressor. Motherhood is at its best when the tender chords of sympathy have been touched. Much responsibility rests upon the shoulders of the song leader; it is not infrequently within his power to make or break a meeting. The less one knows, the more he thinks he knows, and the more willing he is to employ any and all measures to enforce his views upon others.
