Rotary celebrates World Interact Week
By Ryan Hyland Rotary International News

-- 5 November 2010

During World Interact Week, 1-7 November,
Interactors and Rotary club members worldwide commemorate
the charter of the first Interact club in 1962.
To mark this occasion, Interact clubs are encouraged to participate
in joint projects with their sponsor clubs.
"This week is a time for [Rotary] club presidents,
[Rotary International district] governors,
and RI leadership to give priority to a program that has the power to enhance
our public image and potentially improve our membership,"
says Rajani Mukerji, 2009-10 vice chair of RI's Interact Committee
and member of the Rotary Club of Calcutta Mideast, West Bengal, India.
"Interact is one of the starting points for someone's path to Rotary."
Mukerji, who has served as district Interact chair four times,
says Interactors can contribute their time,
even if they lack the ability to fund meaningful service projects.
"Their main strength and resource is giving their time to volunteer
and aid in projects," he says.
"It's the most valuable thing they bring to Rotary."
This year, Interact clubs and their sponsor Rotary clubs
have a variety of ways to participate in World Interact Week.
Clubs are encouraged to complete one, two, or even an entire week’s worth of activities.
After the club completes their activities,
the Rotary club or district Interact chair can fill
out a Certificate of Recognition for presentation.
Download the Certificate of Recognition.
Mukerji says the Interact: Make a Difference DVD
and the second annual Interact Video Contest are great ways to promote the program.
"If these students are doing something good in the world,
it's important we publicize it," he says.

presented by the Manjimup Rotary Club.
Planning for the 6th annual RSM Bird Cameron
presented by the Rotary Club of Manjimup is well underway.
The Wine show judging will be in the Manjimup Town Hall
on Thursday 3rd February 2011.
The Timber Towns Wine Show is a fully accredited Regional Wine Show
which features top judges.
This year the chief judge will be Vanya Cullen
who is recognized throughout Australia as a top judge and winemaker.
Vanya was chief judge for the 2010 Qantas wine show and recently her vineyard,
Cullen’s wines in Margaret River won World Champion Chardonnay.
The other two judges, Bill Crappsley and Rob Bowen
are very highly regarded in the Australian wine industry.
Top winemaker Katie Masters and Liz Reed who is representing the wine industry
at the Great Southern Development Commission

Pemberton, Manjimup and Blackwood Valley to participate .
The standard is high and a number of award winning wines from this wine show
have received accolades from other top wine shows around Australia.
A special feature of this show for the last three years is a section for sparkling wines,
often not included in wine shows as a separate category.
The Chairman of the Rotary organizing committee, Mr Richard Doust said
“This has developed into a very popular and prestigious event.
The prospectus has been sent out to 150 wineries and we expect there
will be a good number of entries.
The show represents a fabulous opportunity to promote
the excellent wines grown in our three premium wine regions.”
This year for the first time, the 2011 Timber Towns trophy winning wines
will be presented at a degustation dinner in an exclusive Perth restaurant
to a select group of wine media and the public.

"Quote of the Week"

When I bought my new Corvette,
my two sons asked me who would inherit it if I met my demise.
I pondered the question, then told them if I passed away on an even day,
the son born on an even day would get it.
If it happened on an odd day, the one born on the odd day would get it.
A few weekends later, while river rafting with one of my sons,
I was tossed out of the boat.
As I floated in the rapids,
I heard my son yelling,
"It's the wrong day!"

Because it is important

Two men were talking, seated on the benches in the City Park.
"My grandson asked me what I did during the Sexual Revolution," said one
."And what did you tell him?" asked the other
."I told him I was captured early
and spent the entire duration washing the dishes,"
the first man replied.

    One fairy tale in particular is the bank would like your house.
    The financial institution wants your hard earned
    money, not the home. They want the funds they gave you along with interest.

    Averting the bank will still only draw a new foreclosed final

  30. I really believe that a foreclosed can have a important
    effect on the debtor's life. Property foreclosures can have a Several to a decade negative affect on a borrower's credit report.
    The borrower having applied for a home loan or virtually
    any loans as an example, knows that your worse credit rating
    e, the more difficult it is to obtain a decent mortgage loan.
    In addition, it could possibly affect any borrower's ability to find a good place to lease or hire, if that results in being the alternative property solution. Thanks for your blog post.
