Council approves fifth Avenue of Service
By Ryan Hyland Rotary International News
-- 28 April 2010

A representative[above] makes a point on a resolution during
the opening day of the Council 26 April.
On Wednesday, the Council approved adding a fifth Avenue of Service.
Representatives at the 2010 Council on Legislation
approved an enactment 28 April to add a fifth Avenue of Service:
New Generations.
After adopting an amendment to change the name from Youth Service,
as originally proposed, to New Generations,
the Council narrowly supported the addition to article 5
of the Standard Rotary Club Constitution.
The 263-250 vote was received by surprised gasps
and applause after a short debate.
New Generations joins Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service,
and International Service as the foundation of club activity.
Before starting a project,
Rotarians are asked to think broadly about how their club
and its members could contribute within each avenue.
“It’s a significant change – a historic day in Rotary,”
said Council Chair Mark Daniel Maloney.
“Rotarians have always strongly supported youth activities
even though they were never part of the four Avenues of Service.
I think this strengthens our commitment.”
The Avenue of New Generations recognizes the positive change
implemented by youth and young adults involved
in leadership development activities,
community and international service projects,
and exchange programs that enrich
and foster world peace and cultural understanding

Quote of the Week



Once upon a time there were two mice,
who lived in a big museum.
Everynight, when the place closed up tight,
they used to play among the exhibits.
They crawled through the dinosaur skeletons,
and they scampered over the picture frames of the Monets and the Picassos,
and they shuffled around therelics taken from an Egyptian tomb.
One night, they were playing near a big, tall suit of armor.
They climbed inat the visor, but one of the mice slipped and fell -
-tumbly-tumbly-kerplop --
all the way to the bottom of one leg.
He was lost!
He was disoriented!
He was frightened!
"Help!" he started to cry.
"Help me make it through the knight!
