More than 320 Rotarians and friends of Rotary walked through Moshi, Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, in June, raising about US$38,000 for Rotary’s challenge and increasing awareness of the polio eradication campaign. Leading the walk, which was organized by the Rotary Club of Moshi and several others, were a marching band, Rotarians wearing red End Polio Now T-shirts, and polio survivors. Reginald Mengi, founder and executive chair of IPP Group, one of the largest conglomerates in East Africa, called on businesses to support polio eradication. “This is called corporate social responsibility,” he said. “you must give back to the community.” Leading by example, Mengi personally contributed $32,000 to the fundraising walk. Bothe Mengi and Stephen Mwanje, 2010-11 governor of District 9200, encouraged parents to have their children immunized against polio. “We must be aware and take all measures, since the disease can spread here within a short period of time,” Mwanje said. Meanwhile in Europe, Rotarians, Rotaractors, and RI staff in Switzerland and Liechtenstein raise more than US$893,000 through the sale of End Polio Now key finders between June 2010 and June 2011. Designed to attach to a key ring, each key finder has an identification number assigned to the owner. Lost keys can be dropped into any mailbox for delivery to an office that then returns the keys to their owner. “The goal of our activities remains the complete eradication of polio in the world. Swiss and Liechtenstein Rotarians will fight for this great goal,” says Urs Herzog, past governor of District 1980, chair of the Switzerland Polio Plus Committee, and PolioPlus national advocacy adviser, as well as a polio survivor.

Go to a meeting online!
I have had a nice morning sitting out on my deck, drinking my coffee, and watching the hummingbirds ﬁghting for the feeders and attempting to run me off with their nasty words and dive bombing. Is this what happens on a daily basis? I was also making plans for this and that in todayʼs PP (Presidentʼs page). # At our meeting today I am going to show you how to do e-meetings when you cannot make it to our regular meetings and Dr. Jennifer Carauddo will give her 15 minute ʻeverything you ever wanted to know about me (and some you didnʼt want to know)ʼ talk. # So this weekʼs notes are about this and that: This: I want to thank both Steve Salmon and Jennifer for working on the cleaning out the closet project. Have a peek at the shelves that Steve put up, the labels on the new boxes, etc. We found some interesting things during our work. Steve found a booklet that talked about when his father was president of the club; I found a District 5170 trophy for, I think, the annual BBQ contest that Campbell won in 2005 that has been hidden in our closet ever since; pictures of Rotary members from I donʼt know when, Marv, Mark, Jerry, Neal all a bunch in cuties that year; a golf trophy started in 1955 and stopped in 1992 and Will Perry was a top winner a bunch of years; many, many ﬂags from other Rotary Clubs that our members and former members have brought back from their trips. Marv mentioned to me that he is interested in putting a history of the Club together so I think we have a good start (and about 4 boxes that he can sort through!); not to mention a box or two for Carl to sort through and a box for Adam as well! I also found a wonderful sign that was recently put together which will be excellent to display for promotion for our club. # That: How to do an E-Meeting: I googled Rotary e-meets and found Rotary e Club One at www.rotaryclubone.org. There are others as well but this was chartered in 2002 and is the oldest and seems to be the most established. Their ʻmission is to be involved, inform, inspire, and connect members and guests who are travel bound, place bound, or schedule bound and prevented from fulﬁlling attendance requirements.ʼ They have created programs/articles and a makeup feature for Rotarians around the globe. They average 405 visitors per day to their site. The current president is in North Carolina; President-elect is in British Columbia; Secretary and Treasurer are both in Colorado; the Membership Chair-Australia, Service Project Chair-Winnipeg Canada, Foundation Director-Osaka Japan, and the PR Director is in Wyoming. There are members across the US, Nigeria, Rome, Germany, Australia, Canada, Japan, England, the Philippines, Kenya, and France. Here is how to sign on: Go to www.rotaryclubone.org •Go to Make Up Programs •Programs for Make up (they ask you to spend 30 minutes with this program) •How to Make up (you can also go to-How to Make up Video) •After spending 30 minutes Request Make up Form There are many articles, some videos and about 100 in archive. The club requests a contribution but doesnʼt insist on it. It can go through pay pal or a check can be written and sent directly to them. They do not insist on a contribution though. Going to e-meetings provides good information, a way to stay connected with our club, and lets us remember why we wanted to become Rotarians in the ﬁrst place. In my investigation for this article I spent about an hour roaming around the website and found lots of interesting things. This is a great way to make up a meeting. # And this: In the future I would like to have some helping hands to put the international ﬂags onto felt backing like the ones that we have displayed currently. I want to display these treasures at our meetings. Remember, the Campbell Club was chartered in 1948, the San Jose West Club and the Willow Glen Club also many years ago and we have lots of travelers.
And that: Dust off those keds, sun visors, and water bottles; get out the dog leash; Jennifer is starting our outdoor social activity and fellowship this weekend. She will be reminding us about the emails she sent to us.
