District Exec.

It was decided at the last District Executive meeting on the 31st October that in future all minutes of Council, Executive and District Committees will be made available in a members’ only access area of the District web site.

This link will take you to the documents but you will need to log on to view them. At the same time, Executive would encourage Clubs to make their minutes available on their own web sites if they do not already do so.

RIBI Re-Districting Draft Proposals – Additional Information

Since details of the RIBI Draft Re-Districting Proposals have been made available, predictably many questions have been asked and comments made by Clubs and members. In an attempt to make the ‘surrounding issues’ a little clearer particularly for those Clubs that may be still undecided. I summarise as below.

Re-districting Proposal 2012

Dear Club President,

In the RIBI Redistricting Proposal details published on 12th October, it mentioned, a time-line showing that a Survey link would be mailed to all Club Presidents on 25th October. I have now learned that this central survey from RIBI will no longer take place.

World Polio Day

DG Steve shows we are 'this close'

“I am proud to be supporting World Polio Day 2012 where people around the globe are working hard to raise awareness of polio as well as trying to eradicate this dreadful disease once and for all. Rotarians around the world have raised millions of pounds and are now so close to wiping polio of the face of our planet once and for all. Feel free to share this post or comment about it on Twitter using our awareness raising tag #rotaryendpolio.”

rotary water-survival boxes contribute to flood relief in chad, mali and senegal

Distribution of the consignment of 400 boxes sent to Chad has been undertaken by the national Red Cross for the benefit of families displaced by flash floods. In the past two weeks we learned that similar floods have affected both Mali and Senegal in West Africa and we are in the process of finalising arrangements to send a total of 600 boxes to be distributed by Rotary Clubs in the vicinity of the two capital cities (Bamako, Mali; and Dakar, Senegal).
