23 April 2012 — Rotary Day at The White House

MESSAGE FROM THE (PROVISIONAL) PRESIDENT

The “official” brochure is ready. Download here:  BROCHURE1eclubv2 (or it may open for you, and then you “save” it), print it front and back, fold in thirds, and show your contacts what we can do even better with them on the team.

Who do you know around town who would be a great Rotarian and fantastic addition to our team?

And are you ready to take it up a notch and help our E-Club launch?

And, Club members, stand by for an e-mail about the upcoming DISTRICT CONFERENCE, June 8-9 at The Beverly Garland in North Hollywood…a great opportunity to learn a lot, have some fun, and meet Rotarians from around the area.

THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

On 20 April 2012, approximate 160 Rotarians visited The White House all morning to participate in briefings from U.S. administration experts in various fields, including Rotary’s six main “areas of focus.”  Following are some links and notes about the day.

One of the ten Rotarians honored as Champions of Change as part of this celebration is Mr. Anil Garg…you’ve heard about him from Julie Jenkins, our speaker about her visit to India to participate in a National Immunization Day.  If you have not watched that amazing program, please do.

Info from Rotary.org before the event can be found HERE.

The official WHITE HOUSE BLOG tells use about the ten honorees.

A statement on the floor of the House of Representatives about THE FOUR-WAY TEST.  (just over one minute long and it cuts off for no real reason, but good to hear)

Understanding that none of us likely has two and a half hours to “attend” this event after the fact on video…it will be nice to have it linked on our E-Club’s website forever, and watching the first several minutes of Part 1 will be very interesting to learn what was on the agenda for an amazing day.

PART ONE

PART TWO

Enjoy…and understand the impact we can, and do, have as Rotarians.

  1. If you could ask a local elected official to do one thing to assist Rotary (all of us, not just our Club), what would you request?

    I would ask her/him to become a Rotarian if she/he isn’t already! It would be interesting to find out how many representatives are Rotarians…

  2. I’m glad to see the White House is recognizing Rotarians for their efforts. I wonder if other administrations also hosted Rotary.
