Rotary Amigos is the best way to spend a Tuesday night

Rotary Amigos and Mequon Thiensville Sunrise were invited to participate in tree planting along with the Milwaukee North Shore Rotary Club. Over 50 came out throughout the day to help make our Earth a better place. Why we plant. Rotary International President-elect Ian H.S. Riseley made the case that protecting the environment and curbing climate change are essential to Rotary’s goal of sustainable service. Riseley, a member of the Rotary Club of Sandringham, Victoria, Australia, unveiled the 2017-18 presidential theme, Rotary: Making a Difference, to incoming district governors at Rotary’s International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA. Environmental degradation and global climate change are serious threats to everyone, Riseley said. “They are having a disproportionate impact on those who are most vulnerable, those to whom Rotary has the greatest responsibility. Yet environmental issues rarely register on the Rotary agenda,” he said. “The time is long past when environmental sustainability can be dismissed as not Rotary’s concern. It is, and must be, everyone’s concern,” he said. The president-elect challenged every Rotary club to make a difference by planting a tree for each of its members between the start of the Rotary year on 1 July and Earth Day on 22 April 2018. Trees remove carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the air, which slows global warming. “It is my hope that the result of that effort will be far greater than the environmental benefit that those 1.2 million new trees will bring,” Riseley said. “I believe the greater result will be a Rotary that recognizes our responsibility not only to the people on our planet, but to the planet."

Rotary International's New Vision Statement

In June, Rotary’s Board of Directors and Trustees approved a new vision statement for the organization:

“Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”

...

The new vision statement helps us set a future course so that Rotary can thrive in the years ahead. It reflects the impact Rotary aspires to have on the world and our members.

To get an unbiased perspective while we developed the vision statement, we worked with Grant Thornton, a consulting agency that specializes in planning and change management.

To help us in shaping the vision, Grant Thornton facilitated surveys, focus groups, and interviews with Rotarians, Rotaractors, Foundation partners, Rotary alumni, Rotarian Action Groups, and others. “It was critical that the vision be crafted from diverse feedback so that it could be understood and adopted by all,” says Stephanie A. Urchick, chair of the Strategic Planning Committee.

“We cannot thank our survey and focus groups enough. Your honest feedback was invaluable not only in capturing the true spirit, shared values, and priorities that make up the distinct character of Rotarians, but also in providing a rich foundation for the next phase of our work: building the strategic plan and priorities needed to bring our vision to life,” she said.

Rotary is developing a plan for implementing the new strategic plan this year.

Very sad. In 2007 Amigos Rotarians Dorothy Krupa and Angela Rester a part of a polio immunization program in India. In 2009 Rester participated in an additional program in Nigeria. We saw how hard the polio workers work and their commitment to this effort for their country and their people which makes this especially sad in Pakistan.

Shooting in the southwestern Quetta city took place during an immunization campaign
