The Rotary Presidential Citation with Distinction has been awarded to the Jamestown Noon Rotary Club for its 2013-14 year.  Past President Sharon Hamilton, now serving as Assistant Rotary District Governor, accepted the award on behalf of the local club at a recent meeting in Buffalo.
 
The Presidential Citation recognizes Rotary Clubs for an array of achievements that enhance humanitarian service, strengthen the network through the family of Rotary and promote membership growth.
 
During the past Rotary year under Hamilton’s leadership, the local club supported the Rotary Foundation, participated in a global grant that provided start-up loan funding for small business for women in Nepal; sent a shelter box to the Philippines and created a Facebook page.  In the area of vocational service, Rotary members assisted in interviewing Jamestown High School students to help them develop job readiness skills.
 
The club’s literacy goals were enhanced by members reading to students at Bush School, by collecting and distributing books throughout the community and by helping third grade students at Love School learn about students in Cambodia.
 
The Jamestown Noon Rotary supported two exchange students from 2013-14, one each from Germany and Venezuela; and three local students in Rotary Leadership Training events.
 
Rotarians participated in the Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign, assisted in high way clean-up and supported the Polio Plus Campaign.  In addition, the local club made a $10,000 donation to the National Comedy Center, a $3,500 gift to the Jamestown Boys and Girls Club and several smaller donations to support community activities.
 
The Jamestown Noon Rotary Club heard weekly speakers who focused on Rotary’s five areas of service:  peace and conflict resolution; disease prevention and treatment; water and sanitation; maternal and child health; basic education and literacy; economic and community development.

The Jamestown Noon Rotary Club meets over lunch on Mondays each week in the banquet room of the Robert H. Jackson Center on Fourth and Prendergast.  Persons interested in learning more about Rotary may contact newly-elected President Todd Allen at 526-4144.
 
 

 
We are pleased to have Cheri rejoin our Rotary Club where she previously was a fun and hard working member. Cheri is owner of Squirrell Hill Consulting specializing in public relations, business writing, social media marketing etc. Cheri lives in Ashville with husband Jim and has three grown daughters and one (spoiled?) granddaughter.

Rotary launched its PolioPlus program, the first initiative to tackle global polio eradication, in 1985.
 
Rotary has contributed more than US$1.2 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect more than 2 billion children in 122 countries. In addition, Rotary’s advocacy efforts have played a role in decisions by donor governments to contribute over $9 billion to the effort.
 
Polio, once a global monster, is now a cornered rat, lashing out in hopes of repopulating. Reduced 99.9 percent from an average number of cases around 400,000 thirty years ago, the number of global polio cases has been cut to around 400 annually. The Global Polio Eradication Initiative hopes to see the final case of polio either late this year or early next year. All polio cases, regardless of where they are found, now originate from three countries: Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria. You can count the number of cases this year in Afghanistan or Nigeria on your fingers; the end of polio there is clearly within reach.

Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country. With...

Partners build community center and health clinic in impoverished Mexico neighborhood
Four years ago, Rotary member Moonyeen King decided to take action to help residents of the impoverished neighborhood of Tepehua, located in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico, who faced daily struggles with crime, malnutrition, and limited access to health care. King, together with Susan Netherton and Gin Pelzl, fellow members of the Rotary Club of Ajijic, turned an abandoned building into the Tepehua Community Center. For its first year, the center provided a soup kitchen every Friday to feed over 200 women and children. That enabled King and her fellow Rotary members to gain the trust of the...
The White House honors Rotary women for their humanitarian service
Senior Rotary leaders gathered Tuesday at the White House to honor 10 women for their service projects, an event attended by members of U.S. President Barack Obama's senior staff. The Rotary members presented their projects, in the hopes of creating new inroads for government partnerships and support. "This is recognition of the great work that they do but also serves as a great vehicle to inspire others to do similar kinds of things," said Rotary General Secretary John Hewko. "One of the things we're doing a better job of is sharing our story to the non-Rotary world." The honorees were...
