It’s now easier than ever to strengthen Rotary’s image in your community
 with the materials and resources available in the Rotary Brand Center.
Launched earlier this month, the Brand Center offers a simple
 and intuitive way to customize your club logo, create a marketing brochure,
 or give your newsletter a fresh look. 
You’ll also find guidelines and answers to frequently asked questions 
as well as information about why telling our story is important.
“The Brand Center enables everybody to play an active role
 in promoting Rotary to the world,” says Alan Buddendeck,
 general manager and chief communication officer for Rotary International.
“What’s exciting is that the site has been designed 
in cooperation with Rotary members worldwide, 
which is critically important to the user experience,” Buddendeck says
Here are five reasons you should use the Brand Center:

1.       You can create your own club and district logos
 featuring Rotary’s masterbrand signature 
and see your edits in real time.

2.      You can develop professional-looking PowerPoint presentations, 
press releases, and newsletters that
 incorporate Rotary’s visual identity.
 Templates can be customized as much -
- or as little -- as you want.

3.      You can find guidelines for using Rotary’s logos and answers 
to frequently asked questions about our new visual identity. 
For instance, did you know that your member pin remains unchanged?
 Or that free fonts are available along
 with the commercially licensed options?

4.      You can upload and store the materials and logos 
you create for future use by creating a basket
. Use the Quick Share function to email your basket 
and share your new materials with members.

5.       You can download broadcast-quality public service announcements,
 videos, and images to help tell Rotary’s story. 
Choose from a variety of topics to illustrate including 
Join Leaders, Exchange Ideas, and Take Action 
-- our three organizing principles.

New to Canada

By night, three violinists played in the symphony orchestra.
 During the day, to make a little money on the side,
 they used their musical talents by roving the city streets
 and having impromptu concerts wherever they 
thought they could make some money from the passersby.
 They called their group,

Thai Military Parade

Did you hear about the thoughtful Scotsman
 who was heading out to the pub?

He turned to his wee wife before leaving and said,

 "Maggie - put your hat and coat on, lassie."

She replied, "Awe Jock that's nice

- are you taking me tae the pub with you?"
 "Nay," Jock replied.
  "I'm switching the heat off while I'm out."
