New Generations gives Rotary a new avenue to serve
By Ryan Hyland Rotary International News -- 9 September 2010
This September's New Generations Month
takes on a different meaning than in the past.
The commitment to getting youth and young adults
actively involved in Rotary was strengthened in April
when representatives at the Council on Legislation approved
New Generations as the fifth Avenue of Service. .
RI President Ray Klinginsmith says the new Avenue of Service
improves the value of youth programs
and their impact on Rotary's future.
"The Council wanted to be sure New Generations programs
were given adequate attention by clubs," says Klinginsmith.
"Rotarians just want to be up front and recognize
the importance of these programs.
New Generations isn't just important to the future of Rotary
but also our communities and the world."
New Generations Service acknowledges the positive change
implemented by youth and young adults involved
in leadership development activities, community and international service,
and exchange programs that enrich and foster world peace and cultural understanding. Programs include RYLA, Rotaract, Interact, and Rotary Youth Exchange.
"We truly have the finest youth programs in the world," says Klinginsmith.
"Their intrinsic value continues to escalate.
We do a great job with these programs,
we just need to give them more visibility."
This month is a chance to celebrate the new Avenue of Service,
says Vicki Puliz, chair of New Generations Service for District 5190
(parts of California and Nevada, USA).
"News of the Council's decision was welcomed with excitement
and enthusiasm by Rotarians in our district," says Puliz.
"We are using this as a way to emphasize how Rotary International
views New Generations and its importance.
It's a springboard to communicate even more with our clubs about these programs."
Virtually every club in her district is involved with
one or more of the four youth programs.
A wide range of district programs fall under the New Generations umbrella, says Puliz.
"Focusing more on youth is crucial for Rotary to thrive and survive," she says.
"It's one of the reasons why we have programs on literacy, leadership training,
and ethics for young people."
She recommends that every club appoint a New Generations Service chair.
"We've learned that our youth programs benefit from
communication and coordination," says Puliz.
New Generations joins Club Service, Vocational Service, Community Service,
and International Service as an Avenue of Service.
Before starting a project, Rotarians are asked to think broadly
about how their club and its members could contribute within each avenue.
Klinginsmith says the best clubs are the ones that are well balanced.
"Strong clubs are involved in all five of the Avenues of Service," he says.
"The ones that don't have New Generations programs
are missing a part of the great adventure of Rotary."


Jacob Olsen is in Denmark and is jointly sponsored
by the Rotary Clubs of Quairading and Gosnells

After the last day of school I jumped onto a bus
with the 55 other exchange students from South Denmark and the Island Fyn
and we all headed on the experience of a lifetime; Eurotour.
We bonded with each other in unimaginable ways
and helped people we barely knew through good times
and bad times and by the end we felt like the 56 best friends anyone could ever have!!!
But it wasn’t all just about the relationships;
Eurotour was of course amazing more so because of all the amazing things we saw!
The Berlin Wall in Germany, the Prague Castle in the Czech Republic,
the Schonbrunn Palace in Austria, the balcony of Juliet in Italy,
the Eiffel tower in France, the Mannequin Pis in Belgium and so much more!!!
It truly was a life changing experience and I doubt that
I will ever have the chance to see so much of the world ever again

Rotary Youth Driver Awareness

The Rotary Youth Driver Awareness Events expand in WA.
The South Perth –Burswood Club conducted their RYDA
event with Como Secondary College for the 3rd year during August.

The Rotary Club of Swan Districts hosts Guildford Grammar School
for the 3rd year on September 22nd.

The eastern goldfields clubs used the wide open spaces for a RYDA
event to help save young people from becoming a road statistic.

The eastern states Rotary Clubs may have provided the meaningful RYDA events
to more than 170,000 year 11 students but WA is gaining on them.
Rotarians help save lives of youth overseas but also in the local community.
This is not with food, water and immunisation, but a form of vaccination.
Teachers and parents think it works and thank Rotarians for their commitment.

Now 29 WA Rotary Clubs have signed the RYDA Australia Compact to get started.
RYDA has been conducted with 14 high schools
making a day available for the RYDA event.
The school curriculum is loaded but the schools find a day,
even if it is the following school year.
More Rotary Clubs conducting local vaccinations would be helpful.

The Rotary Club of Swan Districts invites Rotarians, friends and teachers to visit the -

Midland Speed Dome
Eddie Barron Drive,
Midland WA
Between 0900 and 1430 hours,
there is no general catering
on September 22nd

To Rotary Clubs with a demonstrated interest in RYDA
I advise that Channel 7 are to do a ‘Special’ on RYDA in WA.
It was initiated because they wanted to feature our facilitator Deborah Worts,
the mother of the deceased Fiona.
I was contacted by Channel 7 and met with the Journalist 8-9-2010
thinking that it was a news report item.
I told him what Rotary was about with the RYDA program in WA
and how Deborah fitted in with the RYDA message.
Channel 7 plan to attend the Event at Midland Speed Dome on September 22
to conduct the filming and interviews.
It is intended they will run promos for a few days and then the full feature.
It is for ratings.
Channel 7 are aiming for a big viewing audience
and asked me if we could cope.
It is likely there will be follow up feature next year.
Some will say it is what we have been working towards in WA.
Swan Districts Rotary Club are hosting Guildford Grammar School for that day.
Organisation will just be for a standard RYDA Event,
about 0830 to 1430 hours.
I believe that a large number of Club banners for the backdrop
would show Rotary WA off if they do a panning shot.
It would look good anyway.
I hope a Club representative can attend have a Rotary club banner with you/them.
Business banners and school banners from the schools
you hosted or may host will also be welcomed.
There is no catering at this venue.
Regards .... Rod Style

thanks Rod for the report and pictures

By now you will have received your copy of the
September edition of Rotary Down Under,
but much has happened in the since it was posted,
so we thought you might want to be updated.
As this is written, Rotarians in New Zealand are working feverishly
to clean up after the devastation of last week's earthquake in Christchurch.
The October edition of Rotary Down Under will summarise those efforts,
but in the mean time, Rotary District 9970 Governor Margaret Reeve
is receiving calls from all over the country and overseas
from Rotarians and Clubs wanting to help out.
"The big aftershocks are most unsettling to say the least!" she says.
"If clubs or individual Rotarians can make donations direct
to the Rotary NZ World Community Service Ltd bank account
for the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal,
then we can access funds from that and apply them where needed."

Fellow Rotarians,
The Attadale Club has elected to support
the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society of Western Australia (MSWA)
as its major project this year through the sponsorship
of a 12 hour “Swim for MS” event which will be held
at the Melville Aquatic Centre in Booragoon
on Sunday 19th September from 8am to 8pm.
The event details can be viewed on the website

Those who don’t know much about MS can find out
from the above website about this terrible disease
and its effects on young people particularly.
The Rotary Club of Attadale is seeking your club’s support
for MS sufferers throughout Western Australia
through our project in one of three ways.

Firstly and most importantly,
you can identify someone in your club or associated with a member (s)
of your club who would be willing and able to register a team for the event.
They would then find up to 12 other people
who would form a team under that person’s captaincy.
All would register on line and then add photos,
messages etc to encourage other people to support them in the event.
There is a registration fee of $30 per registrant which goes to MS but in return,
each swimmer receives food and drinks after their swim
and a participant’s pack which includes an event ‘t’ shirt,
a swimming cap and a number of other benefit items.
The communication possibilities are numerous
and are explained on the website.
Your club and its members can support the team by donating on line.
All donations over $2 are tax deductible
and the donor will be automatically issued with an emailed receipt by MSWA.
It is a particularly easy and user-friendly system.
You can even provide your team member with a message of support
and your donation will be displayed if you are happy to be acknowledged publicly.
All contributions, no matter how small or large,
will assist greatly.
Some donation options are shown on the website
but there are facilities to donate any amount.

Secondly, if you cannot form a team you can help by going on line
and donating to a person or a team which is registered.
The Rotary Club of Attadale’s “Yvonne’s Angels” would love to have your support.
Both your club and individual members can donate in this way.

Finally, you can share details of this event
(via the link above) with people in your personal communities
(sporting clubs, churches, social groups, work environments, family and friends).
The RCA looks forward to your support.

Regards...Rod Rate

Quote of the week

The United Nations has designated Sunday Oct 17
as International Anti-Poverty Day.
The week is concerned with poverty around the world,
especially in the poorest countries,
Anti -Poverty week begins this year on Sunday October 17th
and finishes on Saturday October 23rd



It's a slow day in a dusty little Australian town.
The sun is beating down and the streets are deserted.
Times are tough, everybody is in debt
and everybody lives on credit.
On this particular day a rich tourist from down south is driving through town ,
stops at the local motel and lays a $100 bill on the desk
saying he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs
in order to pick one to spend the night
.He gives him keys to a few rooms and as soon as the man walks upstairs,
the owner grabs the $100 bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher
.The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street
to repay his debt to the pig farmer.
The pig farmer takes the $100
and heads off to pay his bill at the supplier of feed and fuel.
The guy at the Farmer's Co-op takes the $100
and runs to pay his drinks bill at the local pub.
The publican slips the money along to a backpacker drinking at the bar ,
who has also been facing hard times and has had to work for him “on credit”.
The backpacker rushes to the motel and pays off his room bill
to the motel owner with the $100 .
.The motel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter
so the rich traveller will not suspect anything
.At that moment the traveller comes down the stairs,
picks up the $100 bill, states that the rooms are not satisfactory,
pockets the money, and leaves town.
No one produced anything.
No one earned anything
.However, the whole town is now out of debt
and looking to the future with a lot more optimism.
And that, ladies and gentlemen,
is how the Australian Government's stimulus package works..........

taken from the Rotary Club of Pinjarra newsletter
Tired of the inconvenience of driving from the airport to his country cottage,
a man equipped his small plane with pontoons
so he could land on the lake directly in front of his cottage.
On his next trip however, he made his approach down the airport runway as usual.
Alarmed, his wife cried out,
"Are you crazy? You can't land this plane here without wheels!"
The startled husband yanked the nose up,
narrowly averting certain disaster.
Continuing home, he landed the plane on the lake without mishap.
As he sat there, visibly shaken, he said to his wife,
"I don't know what on earth got into me.
That's the stupidest thing I've ever done in my life!"
And with that, he opened the door and stepped out
... right into the water.
