There are 31 approved Rotary regional magazines published in 24 languages. 

For Rotary Magazine Month, take a look at The Rotarian Magazin

 or a few of our regional magazines --

More than half of Rotarians worldwide receive a regional magazine
 instead of The Rotarian. 
These publications are produced independently by Rotarians,
 distributed in more than 130 countries, and published in 24 languages.
 They have a combined circulation of 872,000.
 Each magazine has a regional point of view but also includes articles
 and photographs of international interest from The Rotarian.
In addition, Rotary International publishes Rotary Canada,
 a quarterly supplement to The Rotarian with a circulation of 28,000.

Deserving Waitress

 Once upon a time in a land far, far away there was a King
. In the King's court was a Jester. 

The Jester had a real talent for puns and shared them
 with the King at every opportunity. 

The King, however, hated puns more than anything.
 In fact, puns so annoyed the King that he issued
 a proclamation banning puns from his kingdom.
 Anyone caught creating or distributing puns
 was to be hung immediately. 

When the Jester heard his King's proclamation,
 he immediately re-quested an audience.
 Appearing before the King, 
he begged to have the new rule revoked. 

The King refused.

The following dialog ensued: 

King: “Why can't you tell normal jokes like other Jesters?” 

Jester: “OK, I'll try.
 Name a subject.” 

King: “How about the King?” 

Jester: “But the King is not a subject.” 

This blatant pun angered the King greatly.
 He demanded that the Jester try again,
 and this time be serious. 

The Jester agreed, and thought long and hard before speaking. 

“You know,” he said, “our Queen may be a wonder,
 but Queen Mary was a Tu-dor.” 

This was too much for the King and he ordered that the Jester be hung. 

However, when he saw his old Jester up on the gallows 
he was filled with sympathy. 

“Listen,” said the King, “I'll give you one last chance.
 If you can go for one more week without telling me any puns, 
I'll let you live.” 

The Jester agreed and was escorted down from the gallows. 

When he reached the ground,
 he looked back up at the swinging rope and said to the King,
 “You know it’s true what they say.” 

"What's that?” asked the King. 

“No noose is good noose.” 

The Jester was promptly hung

Firestone Pickup Truck
Having a pickup truck with Firestone tires on it is perfect 
when you need to make that quick pick up and get away
. An entertaining ad from Firestone and Ad Agency Leo Burnett 
about the benefit of Firestone Tires.
 I love the look on the father’s face when he realizes that not only 
has daughter left home but she has taken the dog with her.
