Welcome from the District Governor

Themes for the Upcoming months
    October is Economic and Community Development
    November is The Rotary Foundation
 
Well – that summer blew by us again!
My visits to the Clubs have been a veritable Blast - fun and amazing!  Thank you to all the Presidents for their planning and hosting  - more yet to come which I have no doubt will be just as inspiring.  
 
Students returning to school remind us how important learning is to ALL of us. Not only should we continue learning about new things, new places and people, we should continue learning about ourselves.  I encourage you to be both a mentor and mentee to others – the World and your community needs YOU! And Rotary needs you as well to Be The Inspiration. 
 
Moving into October leads us to the necessity of working.  Feeling needed gives us a sense of purpose and meaning in our lives.  When we contribute to society by working hard at paying jobs and/or by volunteering we feel a sense of worth.   By helping others attain satisfying and useful work, we move the entire world in the right direction.   You can do this by giving to the Rotary Foundation and through your community efforts on Local Projects.  
 
Important dates :
            Montreal Zone Conference – September 19th -  22nd   - see you in Montreal!
            World Polio Day October 24th.   – Watch for great club celebrrraaaations and PR!!
 
And as always – BE the INSPIRATION and CHANGE the WORLD

District 5010 News

For the 10th consecutive year, The Rotary Foundation has received the highest rating — four stars — from Charity Navigator, an independent evaluator of charities in the U.S.

In the most recent ratings, the Foundation earned the maximum of 100 points for demonstrating both strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.

In a letter to the Foundation, Charity Navigator notes that "only 1 percent of the charities we evaluate have received at least 10 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that The Rotary Foundation outperforms other charities in America. This exceptional designation from Charity Navigator sets The Rotary Foundation apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness."

The rating reflects Charity Navigator's assessment of how the Foundation uses donations, sustains its programs and services, and practices good governance and openness.
