1 Gulf Coast Gazette Rotary District 6840 Newsletter February, 2012 Message from District Governor Betty Gill February is designated as World Understanding Month, and February 23 is World Understanding and Peace Day, commemorating the first Rotary meeting in This article, entitled Booking a Trip to Global Peace and Understanding by Maureen Vaught, appeared in the January, 2008, edition of Rotary World: When Rotarians participate in a Rotary Friendship Exchange, they return with more than souvenirs and laundry. They bring back lasting friendships, a global perspective, and a newfound appreciation for Rotary s work. Carol Metzker of the Rotary Club of West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA, traveled to Ghana on her first Friendship Exchange. Taking advantage of the exchange s visitor program, Metzker and her daughter spent a week touring the capital city of Accra with their hosts Kathleen Boohene, a member of the Rotary Club of Accra-South, and her husband. Among the many sites they visited was a fishing village. The poorest of the poor were there repairing wooden fishing boats and mending fishing nets, says Metzker. There was a crude facility and an open sewer that served as toilets for the villagers. It was clear why Rotary s work is so vital. A seasoned exchange participant and three-time District 7810 Rotary Friendship Exchange chair, Canadian Pam Harrison has traveled on three trips and helped organize three more. Last year, she accompanied Rotarians from her district on a twoweek exchange with District 3030 in Maharashtra, India. I also work with clubs in our district to organize visits for incoming teams. It all takes time, but these exchanges build such goodwill and even better friendships, says Harrison, a member of the Rotary Club of Sackville, New Brunswick. Participating in a Friendship Exchange also is an ideal way to celebrate World Understanding and Peace Day on 23 February, Rotary s anniversary. And Rotarians now have a new resource to help locate an exchange destination. The RFE Matching Board provides a forum for districts to publicize exchange opportunities in their regions. Launched in August, this Web-based publication is updated quarterly.

2 Club & District News The Rotary Club of Westbank/Gretna proudly announces that their Legacy Clock has now been installed in the City of Gretna's new Community Park Development in Old Gretna. The project has been in the planning stage for twelve years and required that the park first be built that would house the clock, a Rotary centennial project. The clock has the Rotary emblem on all four faces of the dial, a constant reminder to the public of Rotary s presence and involvement in the community. Congratulations to Geoff Kergosien (Physical Therapist/Clinic manager) for his excellent recipe that propelled Accelerated Physical Therapy to winning the judges division of the Bay St. Louis, Mississippi Rotary Club chili cook off! He got all three first place votes from three professional judges with more than 30 teams in attendance! Geoff is a member of the Rotary Club of Bay St. Louis. In Memoriam Our condolences to the family and friends of Kristina Barnard, Ponchatoula High School student and Interact Club member. Kristina was a decorated cadet in her school s Marine Corps Junior ROTC. The Rotary Club of Northlake/Mandeville has expanded its scholarship program for high school students entering college. They now provide $10,000 for each student selected for the program, up from $8,000 previously. Each year two new scholarships are granted four-year scholarships to entering freshmen, so that at any point in time there are eight students receiving aid from the program. The 14th Annual Rotary Scholarship fundraiser will be held on April 22, 2012, at Beau Chene Country Club from 6-9 pm. In the past thirteen years, 24 students have been funded, and awarded over $180,000. The program has an 88% student graduation rate. Students are selected so the scholarship will make the Greatest Impact. Selections are based on three criteria: academic ability, community service, and a need for financial assistance. Several students attended the club meeting on December 29. Pictured are scholarship recipients Ashley Alleman, Raymond Braselman, Jessica Kapota, Ryan Rushing, and Jenna Angele. Rotary members worldwide are cautiously celebrating a major milestone in the global effort to eradicate the crippling disease polio: India, until recently an epicenter of the wild poliovirus, has gone a full calendar year without recording a new case. RI leaders see the Jan. 13 milestone as a testament to the determination of its international membership of 1.2 million and especially the 116,000-plus Rotarians of India to eradicate the infectious disease through the mass immunization of children, a goal Rotary took on 27 years ago. The Rotary Club of Picayune participated in the Picayune Backyard BBQ Challenge held Nov The Picayune Rotary Grillmasters Team won 1st Place in the Pork Division and 2nd Place Overall. Pictured, left to right, are Bill Roberts, Tony Paternostro, President Mark Stockstill, and Billy Geen. You will be able to own their award winning recipe for "Pork Stuffed Tenderloin"-- it has been submitted for publication in the new District cookbook.

3 Club & District News (Cont.) Rotary International President-elect Sakuji Tanaka will ask Rotarians to build Peace Through Service in Tanaka unveiled the RI theme during the opening plenary session of the 2012 International Assembly, a training event for incoming Rotary district governors. Peace, in all of the ways that we can understand it, is a real goal and a realistic goal for Rotary, he said. Peace is not something that can only be achieved through agreements, by governments, or through heroic struggles. It is something that we can find and that we can achieve, every day and in many simple ways. Peace has different meanings for different people, Tanaka said. No definition is right, and no definition is wrong, he said. However we use the word, that is what peace means for us. No matter how we use, or understand the word, Rotary can help us to achieve it. The Parklane Academy Interact Club recently adopted a Pike County family which had lost its home to fire. Shown in the photo to the left preparing the delivery of food, clothes, and toys to the family are: Lotte Vestb, Olivia Haskins, Leslie Willis, and Hunter Authement. Shoes for Orphan Souls District 6840 is teaming up with philanthropy Buckner International to ask Rotarians and local residents to collect shoes for children in need. The annual nationwide Shoes for Orphan Souls shoe drive is seeking to collect more than 250,000 pairs of new shoes, socks and shoestrings, with a nationwide campaign. Since 1999, Buckner has sent more than 2.2 million pairs of new shoes to vulnerable children in 74 countries around the globe, including the United States. District Governor Betty Gill said, We hope that with the support of area churches, retailers and civic groups, we can help Buckner reach their goal and make this life better for children. Rachel Garton, director of Shoes for Orphan Souls, said, We have seen the smiles that a new pair of shoes brings to children in the orphanages we visit, and we want to extend that same joy to others like them. Because of Rotary s commitment to this program, we can continue to increase the number of kids who will benefit. Millions of children reside in orphanages throughout our world, Garton said, and those orphanages are not receiving enough money to care for the children s most basic needs, like shoes and socks. An unexpected benefit of donating new shoes is the sense of satisfaction on the part of the person who gives. At Buckner, we say new shoes are good for the soul yours and theirs, Garton said. A person who gives can t help but feel as though they also have received a great gift. Donated items should be for children and teens and due to customs regulations, shoes and socks need to be brand new. For those preferring to make a cash donation, $25 will buy a new pair of shoes and cover distribution costs. All clubs should bring their shoes to the District Conference in Metairie April Betty and Mike Gill will personally deliver the shoes to Buckner s headquarters in Mesquite, Texas. For more information, contact ADG Joyce Shaw at RI has succeeded in meeting the Gates Foundation s $200 million match in funding for polio eradication, raising more than $202.6 million as of Jan. 17. We ll celebrate this milestone, but it doesn t mean that we ll stop raising money or spreading the word about polio eradication, Rotary Foundation Trustee John Germ told Rotary leaders at the International Assembly in San Diego. We can t stop until our entire world is certified as polio-free. In recognition of Rotary s great work, and to inspire Rotarians in the future, the Gates foundation is committing an additional $50 million to extend our partnership, said Jeff Raikes, CEO of the Gates Foundation. Rotary started the global fight against polio, and continues to set the tone for private fundraising, grassroots engagement, and maintaining polio at the top of the agenda with key policymakers.
