Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown presents keys to the city to Aziz Memon (left) and John Germ (right). Memon is chair of Pakistan's Rotary EndPolio Now! committee. Germ is RI President-nominee for 2016-2017. They spoke to a District-wide Rotary Day luncheon hosted by our club and gave a status report on Rotary's worldwide campaign to eliminate the scourge of polio. At last count 241 cases have been reported this past year with only three countries now dealing with new cases - Pakistan, Afganistran and Nigeria.
Week 16. Rotary Minute for week beginning October 20, 2014.
As you know, every fourth week is recap time for the previous three weeks, so here we go!
Week 13: This week’s Minutarian turned into a recap of weeks 9, 10, 11 and 12 because of the special announcement in week 12 about nominations due on November 1 for District Governor. So I will take this opportunity to remind you that all clubs should be sending in their nominations for District Governor to serve during the 2017-2018 Rotary Year. Let’s get going and send in those nominations. See the district website (www.rotary6970.org) for instructions.
Week 14: This week’s Minute was a reminder that October is Vocational Service Month in the Rotary year. Combining our vocational talents, we join together to do good in the world. You were all encouraged, as we transitioned monthly themes from September and New Generations to October and Vocational Service, to take this opportunity to share our passion for doing good with our Rotaract Clubs, Interact Clubs, Rotary Youth Exchange students and RYLArians. Make the effort to spread the good word and light up the family of Rotary for the next generation of Rotarians.
