Here's a periodic update from the Service Seat.
 
The 5010 Big Clean:  this is our effort to make many, many little efforts to clean up the world as we go through our lives of work, recreation and service.  After all, when we have healthy, Polio-Free, literate children, they should have a clean world to work with.  The next time you go out walking, visiting the parks, forests and praires, take a bag with you.  If it doesn't belong on the ground - pick it up and throw it away.  Kindly, let me know approximately when, where and how long you were actively looking.  Many thanks to Julie and Sharon for letting me know!  George, send me the details of your roadside clean-up again, if you would, please.  Also, our new president, Julie, found a connection for the club to be PAID for 4th July pick-up. Here's the progress so far: 
 
Non-duplicated locations:   8
States:   3
Countries:   1
Rotarian hours:   81.5
Non-Rotarian hours:   0.25
 
Julie has said that RYLA will be another focus for the year.  Many thanks to George and the club for fundraising at last year's auction to fund this year's projects.  RYLA is a fair bit away.  We'll get back to that.
 
 
We heard at the meeting about the Anchorage club's project to put books in Alaska airports.  It sounded like the Ketchikan area may be next area for growth.  Sharon talked about Little Free Libraries in her email summary - great work!  Little Free Libraries is another kind of project that we could do well - somewhat independent/parallel projects in many areas.  Costs are reasonable, I think, but as a consideration, the little libraries need a commitment to be maintained and stocked over time.  I'd suggest we look at this further if there is club interest.
 

 
Welcome to District 5010 e-Club of Alaska and Yukon!  We are a dynamic group of Rotarians dedicated to being a positive impact and we hope you are too.  If you are a Rotarian who finds yourself needing a little more flexibility for making meetings or a Rotarian needing a makeup, this is the place for you.  Here are a few ways you can become involved with the e-Club of District 5010:
  • Become a member, contact one of our board members and review club documents on clubrunner
  • Do a makeup meeting, look under the meetings menu for the current weeks meeting and send an email to the club secretary with comments to receive a makeup for your club.
  • Request to be added to the club bulletin for updates on club activities and meetings
  • Friend us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/rotaryeclub5010/ 
  • Visit a member.  Are you traveling?  Our members are located throughout the world.  We are Alaska based but world minded and would enjoy meeting you and exchanging banners and especially enjoy you joining one of our live meetings.
We look forward to meeting you in an upcoming meeting!
 

 
 

The 2016 district 5010 conference was held this year at the Talkeetna Lodge.  The District 5010 e-Club received two club awards this year at district conference as well as one individual award. We had the highest percentage of members attending the conference and we took second place in the Shelterbox challenge with our support. Julie had an individual award for her work with the e-club and in the community.  Be sure to visit the photo albums for more photos from the conference.

Great job to all the District 5010 e-Club members.  

 

 
 
This year the e-Club had 7 out of 12 members attend the second annual meeting at the District 5010 Conference. The annual meeting was open and had a large attendence from Rotarians in other clubs and District 5010.  This years meeting had the passing of president from George to Julie (official July 1st) and a first Paul Harris award to Julie.  Two other members received a PH+ at the meeting.  Shows the dedication the District e-Club has and look forward to seeing how the club continues to grow.  More photos from the meeting can be found in the photo albums.
 
Thanks to all that attended and continue to support the club.
 

 
 
 
Foundation News - January 2016
January is Vocational Service Month 
 
----------------------------------
 
The impact of an HIV/AIDS vocational training project in Liberia can be assessed by the ultimate measure: life itself.  “There are children of HIV mothers living today who would not have seen their first birthdays [without the training],” says Elizabeth Mulbah, a member of the Rotary Club of Sinkor, Montserrado County, Monrovia, who delivered a lecture for health care providers about HIV/AIDS during the vocational training team’s five-day workshop in 2012.
 
The goal of the team -- comprised of individuals from the Los Altos Rotary AIDS Project in California, USA; the Rotary Club of Sinkor; St. Joseph’s Catholic Hospital in Monrovia; Global Strategies for HIV Prevention, and the Center for HIV Information at the University of California, San Francisco -- was to increase maternal HIV/AIDS services and to improve the quality of care in Liberian clinics.  Nearly 60 health care workers in Montserrado and neighboring Bomi counties learned techniques to prevent mother-child transmission of HIV and to improve their ability to diagnose and treat infected women. They also were taught how to pass along the information to other health care workers.
 
Now, a Rotary Foundation global grant is facilitating an expansion of the project to other parts of Liberia.
 

 

The Rotary Foundation enables Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through many improvement projects worldwide. Donations to the foundation allow Rotarians to fund humanitarian activities, from local service projects to global initiatives through grants. The Rotary Foundation also supports worldwide Rotary campaigns such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Rotary International has a great deal of information on the Rotary Foundation.

Our club participates in the Every Rotarian, Every Year campaign which asks each club member to contribute $100.00 per year to the Rotary Foundation. We also participate in the Polio Plus Rotary Campaign and encourage members to donate $30.00 per year to Polio Plus. All contributions to the Rotary Foundation are tax deductible and go towards earning a Paul Harris Fellowship. The Paul Harris Fellowship is earned when a member donates $1000.00.

There are many ways to give to the Rotary Foundation. The simplest method is to give your donation electronically directly to the Rotary International website on the Foundation Giving Page

If you would prefer to send a check to the Rotary Foundation, complete this application and mail your check directly to Rotary International.
