FEBRUARY IS ROTARY WORLD UNDERSTANDING MONTH

 
Is your Club emphasising Rotary's goal of world understanding and peace?

SEC'S SPOT 
 

District Secretary's notices appear here, and like the District Diary, are on the District Website

Lots of competition finals coming up. Young Chef is 3 March, Young Musician 4 March and Quiz on 19 April.

Next District Council and Mini Convention will be 21 March and District Assembly is 28 April. 

NEW MEMBERS

 We are not aware of any new members this time. 

Don't forget to tell us when your Club does so that we can welcome them to Rotary and share your Club's success.

Also let Sue Fitzjohn know what your Club is doing to recruit new members.

BOWLED OVER????

Some interest has been expressed to resurrect this competition.

It needs a few more Clubs to make it worthwhile. 

Please indicate your Club's interest to District Sports Officer Peter Holl before the end of this month.

The deadline for the Significant Achievement Award is 15 March.

This award recognises outstanding community service projects.

Why not consider entering something that  your Club is proud of?  

POLIO
ON BBC TV

Don't forget that on Monday's 6pm and 10pm news, the BBC's Medical Correspondent, Fergus Walsh, will profile the National Immunisation Day in India.
It is hoped that RIBI President Burman will be interviewed on the following morning's BBC Breakfast.
Great opportunities to spread the word, celebrate Rotary's achievements and remind people that we can't stop now in the challenge of eradicating Polio.

 
CONFERENCE NEWS

Registrations now exceed 600 which is great and well up on previous years. Still room though for more to enjoy an interesting and varied programme of speakers and seminars.

Register today for this unique chance to find out more about the wonderful world of Rotary in good company. 



The next day's Festival of Rotary is attracting media coverage already with a double page spread in the Bristol Evening Post.

As well as many Rotary Clubs telling local people what we do, a full programme of entertainment is lined up to attract people along. Should be a great day.
