November is Rotary Foundation Month


 • In addition to our global organizational plans,
 Rotary members are being mobilized on the
ground to help prevent the spread of Ebola
 and other major diseases. 
The Rotary Club ofMonrovia,
 for example is working directly
 with the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare in Liberia
 to enhance local support for Ebola patients, health workers, 
and support personnel.
Rotarians are soliciting funds to buy locally available items,
 providing much needed
transportation, tracking potential Ebola cases,
 and supporting the reintegration of those 
who have recovered from the virus.
 Funding for the Monrovia project will also 
be used for local vehicle repair,
 fuel, medicine, mattresses, buckets, and other supplies.
 The Monrovia club hasasked for donations of gowns,
 gloves, face masks,
 shoe covers, plastic boots, and, sadly, body bags.
 Please contact Yoquai Lavala with copy to David Frankfort
 for more information on where
to send items,
 and read more about the club’s project in Rotary Ideas.
Rotarians and friends of Rotary can also support
 our broader efforts to address public health concerns
by contributing to the Rotary Foundation’s 
disease prevention and treatment fund.
 Contributions can be made securely online at
give by selecting the Annual Fund option. 
They can be made in
a variety of currencies, 
and are eligible for Paul Harris Fellow recognition.
 While these gifts may not contribute directly
 to current Ebola relief efforts, 
they will be put to effective use to support Rotary’s
ongoing commitment to prevent disease and improve
 access to health care around the world.

Possibly the best poster on the London Underground...

Wheel of Impressions with Kevin Spacey

The rain was pouring 
and there was a big puddle in front of the pub.
A ragged old man was standing there with a rod 
and hanging a string into the puddle.
A tipsy- looking, curious gentleman came over
 to him and asked what he was doing.
'Fishing,' the old man said simply.

'Poor old fool,' the gentleman thought 

and he invited the ragged old man to a drink in the pub.

As he felt he should start some conversation 
while they were sipping their whisky, 
the gentleman asked,
'And how many have you caught?'
'You're the eighth,' the old man answered..
Don’t under estimate the elderly!!
