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.

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.

Tips to help your club find and nurture a Youth Exchange host family
With 12 children -- six girls and six boys -- the Labordes hardly needed to add another member to their family. But they did: Over 40 years ago, Julia Mullikin, a Rotary Youth Exchange student from the United States, became like another daughter to this large family in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. "She's been a blessing for us," says Maria Victoria Hallal de Laborde who was 18 when Mullikin arrived in 1973. Like many exchange students, Mullikin remains close to her host family. So close that when one of Laborde's sisters was diagnosed with a rare, fatal disease, Mullikin arranged to send the...
Free vegetable gardens sprouting up around France
Imagine a community where the residents are all free to plant, grow, harvest, and eat healthy food whenever they want without having to pay for it. Sound too good to be true? That's exactly what residents of more than 20 cities and towns in France are doing through a project called Potalib. Launched by the Rotaract Club of Versailles, Potalib was inspired by the Incredible Edible project, an international food-sharing movement founded by Nick Green in England. The Rotaract members obtained Green's permission to apply the concept in France, changing the name to "Potalib," a contraction of "...
Anti-vaccine movement may have global repercussions
Supporters of the anti-vaccine movement question the safety, efficacy and necessity of the very medicines that have so greatly reduced our children's risk of catching a host of once-common but potentially very serious infectious diseases, such as mumps, measles and whooping cough. And then there's polio, the disabling, sometimes fatal virus that was every American parent's worst nightmare until effective vaccines were developed in the 1950s — and which still infects children in the developing world. Some who oppose vaccines are well-meaning parents who have come to believe — wrongly in the...
Rotary’s Response to Ebola Outbreak
Rotary continues to follow the developments surrounding the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and advice of the World Health Organization and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, our partners in international public health. Strengthening the health infrastructure and supporting and sustaining the deployment of government health workers throughout these outbreak areas are greatly needed. Although Rotary has limited opportunities to respond at a corporate level, our strength as an organization is firmly rooted in the grassroots response of Rotary clubs and Rotarians. Clubs around the...
Since Boys' Week, Rotary has been empowering young leaders
The history of Rotary's work with youth dates back to the 1920s, when many clubs took part in an international event known as Boys' Week. The first Boys' Week was held in New York City in May 1920 by the Rotary Club of New York and other local organizations. The event was part of an effort to promote youth development in the areas of education, citizenship, health and hygiene, and vocation. New York club members reported on the success of Boys' Week at the 1920 Rotary convention, hoping that it would become part of the Boys' Work program, which Rotary had established several years earlier...
