Rotarians are being asked to help their communities around Valentine’s Day 2017

The 2017 Rotary Has Heart program is a Community Service Program which is a continuation from last

year’s program, originally initiated by PRIVP Anne L. Matthews and expanded by PRID Robert Hall and now continued by RID Joe Mulkerrin.  I would like all our 80 clubs in District 7770 to do a community service project in the 1st quarter of 2017 and let the community be aware of what Rotary is doing.  We can help those in need and improve Rotary’s image in each of our communities at the same time.  The Rotary Foundation Trustees and RI Board consider this awareness a critical element in our membership strategy which is key to Rotary’s future.

Zone 33-34 Director Mulkerrin announced a recognition program in which all clubs and districts can participate.  Each Governor will select what is considered to be the best Rotary Has Heart club community service project with related publicity in the district.   A club president from Zone 33 and Zone 34 will receive 1,000 Paul Harris recognition points plus a certificate and be recognized at all events after the deadline (March 31, 2017).  The two club presidents can use the 1,000 recognition points to honor a Rotarian or non-Rotarian who has made a significant contribution to their community. The District Governors in each Zone with the highest percentage of participation will receive a painting by George Lewis to auction off to raise funds for PolioPlus or a Water Project or one of the six Areas of Focus.

Each club may decide for itself how it wants to participate. It could be something as simple as donating money to an established program or something as complex as organizing a full-fledged club service project all following the six areas of focus. While this is first and foremost a Community Service Project, it is also a chance for us to show thousands of communities throughout our zones what Rotarians can do to Serve Humanity.

 

  • Reduced meals at a meeting with the cost difference donated to fight hunger in your community.
  •  Provide food or related supplies to a needy organization in your community
  •  Back Pack Buddies
  • Harvest Hope
  • Work with your local food pantry or food providers i.e. Meals On Wheels

On Veterans Day, November 11, 2016. Lovenia Williams (Standing in center rear of photo), Vice President of Coastal Carolina University Rotaract Club, is pictured with local area Veterans during a special moment at Eggs Up Grill, Conway. Lovenia, a CCU student, presented each Veteran a home made wallet card with a star from a retired American Flag reminding them in this moving tribute:

“I am part of our American Flag that has flown over the USA. I can no longer fly. The sun and winds caused me to become tattered and torn. Please carry me as a reminder that….you are not forgotten.” The Rotaract Club is sponsored by Rotary Club of Carolina Forest Sunrise.
