ROTARY CLUBS INVITE STUDENTS TO TRAVEL IN JAPAN

The Rotary Clubs in this area are looking for 28 students to represent the region in a cultural exchange with Japan.

The Ross Redmond Short Term Youth Exchange Program, now in its 38th year, offers students ages 16 to 19 the opportunity to learn about Japanese culture, interact with Japanese students, and "form friendships that will last a lifetime," said Jim Allison, the program's chairman.

The three-week trip, tentatively departing on Friday, June 30, and returning on Friday, July 21, will include visits to major cities in southern Japan, including Osaka, Kyoto and Nara.

There also will be a separate trip to Hiroshima to visit Peace Memorial Park and the Holocaust Museum.

Host Families

The group will stay on the island of Shikoku, the smallest of the four main islands in Japan. During the course of the trip, each student will meet and live with four host families in each of the island's four prefectures.

The total cost of the trip, including food, lodging and airfare, is $3,000. Students, who must live or attend school within Rotary District 7470 -- which encompasses Morris, Essex, Sussex and Warren counties -- are selected through an interview process that occurs during February and March.

Applications are being accepted until Wednesday, March 15. To apply, visit the Rotary District 7470 website for the Japan exchange at http://rrstye.rotarydistrict7470.org/.

For information, contact Ross Redmond Short Term Youth Exchange Chairman Jim Allison at [email protected] or (201) 213-6382.

Did you watch the Tournament of Roses - Rose Parade? We did and we all cheered with excitement when we saw the gorgeous Rotary International Float appear.

Rotary International's 2017 Float promotes and celebrates the 100 years of The Rotary Foundation. The Foundation empowers Rotarians to travel throughout the world and create and complete projects which serve people in need in six areas of focus which are: promoting peace, fighting disease, providing clean water, saving mothers and children, supporting education, and growing local economies.

The spectacular and colorful dragon is clearly a world traveler carrying luggage decorated with the six symbols of the areas of focus. The Dragon also is proudly wearing a necklace with a medallion marked 100 for the 100 years of service.

Congratulations to the Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee for a job well done!

ROTARIANS ARE THANKFUL ON THANKSGIVING!

Happy Thanksgiving to all! As many of us sit down to enjoy a turkey dinner with friends and family, we as Rotarians should take a few moments to reflect. Thanksgiving gives us an opportunity to celebrate with friends and family over a meal, while there are lonely people without a roof over their head and a hot meal on their table.

Rotarians are thankful for the opportunity to serve and represent our professions. We know of many causes, many opportunities to volunteer, and we are aware that members of our Rotary Club have made a huge impact in our local & international communities.

We as Rotarians should be thankful that…..

The Eradication of Polio in the world is almost completed. There are only two countries that have active cases of Polio, and it is Rotary who has helped and will continue the fight until we have completed the task, to rid the world of Polio

We as Rotarians should be thankful that…..

That each day, inner city children have a safe place to participate in a free after-school program. These kids have a chance to get homework help, a nutritious snack, play, learn and have fun at the

We as Rotarians should be thankful that…..

We support literacy. The Rotary Summer Literacy program offers children from across Ossining the opportunity to maintain and increase their literacy levels by receiving both a dictionary and a Thesaurus.

We as Rotarians should be thankful that…..

We invest in young people. We have been involved Interact, Rotaract, RYLA and supported both scholars and young professionals from around the world.

We as Rotarians should be thankful that…..

We have the opportunity to meet each week, hear a speaker, network and enjoy the fellowship of Rotarians. We have many riches to share with each other remembering our motto of SERVICE ABOVE SELF

We as Rotarians should be thankful that…..

We have the ability to raise funds needed and the time and ability to support programs that make a difference in the lives of children & families in our local & international communities

We as Rotarians should be thankful that…..

There are many who are thankful for that Rotary this Thanksgiving Day. We are thankful for our dedicated and committed Rotary members helping create positive change in our communities and around the world. Take a moment during Thanksgiving to enjoy the contributions that Rotarians like you make in the world.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Rotary donates rescue dummy to Chester Fire Company

The Chester-Long Valley Rotary recently donated a 110 pound rescue dummy to the Chester Fire Company. The rescue dummy, already named “Bernie” by the Fire Company, will be used during training exercises for search and rescue drills. The dummy is designed to simulate the dead weight feeling of moving an unconscious victim. The rescue dummy will provide a more realistic and safer training for the members of the fire company. It will be used during automobile extraction drills to simulate trapped victims. It can also be used for high and low angle rescues to simulate having the weight of a patient in a stokes basket or sling at high angles instead of using an actual person which could risk injury.

The Chester-Long Valley Rotary is always looking for people who are interested in providing service to the community. Everyone is welcome to join us. Rotary meets each Thursday: 1st Thursday evening at NY Pizza at 6:30pm, remaining Thursday meetings at 11:45am at Redwoods. Call Bill McGuire on 908 876 3584 for more information.

Kristen Bell signs on as Rotary celebrity ambassador for polio eradication | Rotary

Kristen Bell signs on as Rotary celebrity ambassador for polio eradication.

Evanston, Ill., (08 October 2015) – Kristen Bell is the newest face to join Rotary's 'This Close' public awareness campaign for polio eradication. A paralyzing and life altering disease, polio is on the verge of becoming the second human disease ever to be eliminated worldwide after smallpox.

Bell joins Rotary's fight against polio as the service organization and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative enter the final push to eliminate the vaccine-preventable disease. With the historic removal of Nigeria from the list of polio-endemic countries last month, just two continue to report polio cases: Pakistan and Afghanistan.

"I am overjoyed to work with Rotary at such an important moment in history," Bell said. "To help create awareness about this horrible disease is exhilarating."

Bell is best known for her roles as the quick-witted, sassy title character in the hit series Veronica Mars, razor-sharp Jeannie van der Hooven of House of Lies, and the voice of Princess Anna of Arendelle in Disney's third highest-grossing film Frozen. She became interested in the importance of vaccines after the birth of her two daughters, Lincoln (age two) and Delta (age one).

"As the mother of two young girls, I can't emphasize enough how important it is to make sure every child is safe," she said. "Polio can be prevented with just 60 cents worth of vaccine - there's absolutely no reason any child should suffer from it. Hopefully by lending my voice to send this message, I can help rid the world of polio forever."

As part of the 'This Close' campaign, Bell will be featured in ads raising her thumb and forefinger in the 'this close' gesture with the tagline 'we're this close to ending polio.' Since the initiative launched in 1988, the incidence of polio has plummeted by more than 99.9 percent, from about 350,000 cases a year to less than 400 confirmed in 2014.

The actress joins other public figures and celebrities participating in Rotary's public awareness campaign, including Bill Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Supermodel Isabeli Fontana; Latin Grammy Award-winning singer, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu; action movie star Jackie Chan; boxing great Manny Pacquiao; pop star Psy; golf legend Jack Nicklaus; conservationist Jane Goodall; premier violinist Itzhak Perlman; Grammy Award winners A.R. Rahman; Angelique Kidjo and Ziggy Marley; and peace advocate Queen Noor of Jordan.

Bell's ad will debut during Rotary's World Polio Day livestream event, taking place on Friday, 23 October at 6:30 p.m. EST at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City. Click here to view the streaming event.

Rotary launched its polio immunization program PolioPlus in 1985 and in 1988 became a spearheading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative with the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and more recently the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Rotary's roles within the initiative are fundraising, advocacy, raising awareness and mobilizing volunteers. To date, Rotary has contributed more than $1.4 billion and countless volunteer hours to fight polio. Through 2018, every dollar Rotary commits to polio eradication will be matched two-to-one by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation up to $35 million a year. To date, more than 2.5 billion children have been immunized against the paralyzing and sometimes deadly poliovirus.

About Rotary
Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer leaders dedicated to tackling the world's most pressing humanitarian challenges. Rotary connects 1.2 million members of more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas. Their work improves lives at both the local and international levels, from helping families in need in their own communities to working toward a polio-free world.
