DG Andre's Message - September 2019

In this month's message I share a little about the club visits I have taken thus far on my 2019-2020 DG journey. I reflect on the challenges our state faces, but the opportunities these challenges provide to our clubs for service projects.  I celebrate our progress on forming a new Satellite club in D5010 and recent growth in membership since July 1st.  I look forward to district efforts providing Rotary education and training for club officers. I talk about district plans for the $200/club Public Image stipend that will be provided this year.  I mention the roll-out of our D5010 Mobile APP and progress by the five pilot clubs who are currently using the APP.  I invite clubs to share their stories and also send their feedback.  I mention plans for World Polio Day and encourage clubs to take action to celebrate eradication efforts.  Finally I share that several districts have approached D5010 about opportunities for Rotarians to be a part of Rotary Friendship Exchange in 2019-2020 and 2010-2021.  If you have interest in this, please contact me.

Themes for the Upcoming Months         
  June:   Rotary Fellowship Month
 
 
With June being Fellowship Month, it is fitting that many of our members are in Hamburg at the Rotary International convention meeting fellow Rotarians from all over the world.  This is one year I will miss as our oldest daughter, Anna, is being married soon! 
 
Fellowship covers our interactions with our family, our friends, our communities and our global neighbors around the world.  With Rotary being inclusive to all, accepting of all and geared for action, fellowship is the glue that binds us together. We hatch ideas around a good meal or a community barbecue, we establish partnerships and determine how best to work together - and THEN the People of Action DO take action to accomplish the myriad of things on their list.  
 
I have many words to express being your District Governor but excited, humbled and proud of all that our 40 clubs have accomplished are just a very few.  The PowerPoint presentation DGN Joe Kashi put together for the District Conference showcased the basics.  The year has flown by and the ideas, global grants, and many community projects that were accomplished are the guiding light for the future. Our Rotary Cares for Kids District project is continuing and getting better all the time.  As Rotary we do accept all beliefs and I invite you to walk under the Banner of Rotary International District 5010 in the Anchorage Pride Festival parade with me on June 29th or do so in the parades in your own areas. 
 
Our District website is getting a fresh new look so be sure to check it out and help to keep everything current. 
 
And as we enjoy the summer that is finally here, continue to do the good work with your fellow members, bring in more friends to help and enjoy great companionship and as always - continue to BE the INSPIRATION!
 
 
There are many ways we can help in our own communities and the world.    
Thank you for all you do for Rotary and as always, enjoy the fellowship with your members!

The clacking of sewing machines fills the sunlit room until word spreads that the bus has arrived. At that, a dozen women clad in pink kurtas file into the courtyard of the Seven Women Center in Kathmandu, Nepal.

One lucky bidder won a Mardi Gras dinner for six at our annual "Night at the Movies" Foundation Fundraiser.  These folks know how to party!
 
Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday. It's also called Shrove Tuesday, Carnival Tuesday or Pancake Tuesday, depending on where the celebration is taking place.
No matter the name, it's a day of revelry that includes parades, parties and gastronomic indulgence before the Christian fasting season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. It marks the last day of the Carnival season, basically a six-week period of partying around the globe.

District 5010 would like to sincerely say thank you to our sponsors for having such a caring and giving heart because without their support for our 2019 District Conference, it would not be possible.
 
With your donations, we are able to provide not only a full weekend of exciting events for members and their families, but it will also provide inspiration through our speakers, educational growth and training for dedicated Rotarians, the sharing of local club and international projects, fellowships with new and old friends. We will hear inspiring stories from Rotary Youth Exchange students.  We will share ideas, celebrate our accomplishments, and find out what has been happening in the district and the world. 
 
“Together, we are the inspiration!”

Hi Everyone,
And…. November went out with a jump and a jolt which got all of our attention.  But our members are safe. Bob and I were in Seward helping the Club give Superintendent Lapinskas a Paul Harris for his  work with the prisoners within the Springcreek Correctional Center.  As we waited to get in, the prison went on lock down but they allowed us to come in to present the award, and more importantly let us back out!  I’ve always said orange is NOT my color but according to some Facebooks posts – a few of you thought perhaps it WOULD look good on me – hah – nice try!
I have contacted all Rotary Presidents in our immediate affected areas and have heard from others all over the District.  Most damage seems to be personal items inside houses and minor cracks in structures. It is sad to lose treasured objects, but they are objects, not our loved ones.  No injuries reported as of yet.  As always, our Rotarian friends are helping those in their immediate areas and we have offered more help if needed. 
The In-Bound Youth exchange students are all safe and accounted for.  Their parents have been contacted and reassured of their safety. 
All of us are thankful to have survived ANOTHER earthquake and will plan for the next as well since it is “When not If” in our area.  Our Crises Plan is being formalized and updated as we speak and seems to be working well so far.  If you have any suggestions please send them to Joe Kashi as he is the point person to gather issues for the Crises Planning.
It has been heartening to hear the voices of those we care about.  So I’m very happy to report that all is well so far.  If anything changes, I’ll keep you posted. 
 
Yours in Rotary, 
DG Diane
 
All are safe! Cathy K 2018-12-01 09:00:00Z 0

Ketchikan Kayhi Rotary Interact.
They are sponsored by First City Rotary under president Helen Mickel . 
The kids under Interact President Emma Campbell run the club by themselves, have established their own peer mentors and are a well oiled machine.
They do local and International projects. Every month they are onto something new.
Rotarian Marna Cessnun stands by for encouragement and help... along with other Rotarians.

Hi Op-Com Members and DGs, DGEs, DGNs, and DGDs,
 
Most of you know that, for the past three years, I have been working on the establishment of an international peace park on the border of India and Pakistan.
To that end we have created a Steering Committee and are working on a number of steps to further our initiative.

Many donors in your district are planning their calendar year-end contributions. Calendar year end is a popular time for a number of giving options like:
  • IRA Charitable Rollovers: Enables donors over 70 ½ years old to transfer up to $100,000 annually from their IRA account directly to charity.
  • Corporate Matching: Employers can match any of your donations by sponsoring a matching gift program.
  • Stock Gifts: Help Rotary make an impact and receive tax benefits by making a gift of appreciated securities.

    My name is Christtel and I am supporting district team fellow rotarian Carlo Palmese in to raising awareness in the clubs of our District 4250 (Belize, Guatemala and Honduras), regarding solid waste management (plastic pollution) which is affecting not only our district but the world as a whole. Carlo and I have put together a presentation which has now been shared to all of the clubs in our district, to encourage them to work on projects towards managing this issue. To help the clubs, we are also working on the grant format to make it easier for them to work on a proposal for the Rotary Foundation, and submit a project in the Growing Local Economies area of focus.

    The District 3292 Conference will be in Butwal, Nepal, from February 22 to February 24, 2019.  You can get to Kathmandu on Alaska Airlines miles on Korean Air.  
     
    A number of District 5010 Clubs have been involved in projects with Nepali Clubs over the past 20 years.  Interest has been expressed in the past about going to Nepal.  This is a great opportunity to travel to Nepal and meet Nepali Rotarians.
