One of the 5 Avenues of Service 

Are you participating with your Club in a Youth Service Competition and/or Programme?
There are so many to choose from...

They all "Engage Rotary - Change Lives"

and they are all part of "We're for Communities". 
These competitions and programmes raise awareness of Rotary right across the spectrum of community locally and nationally. The Clubs who get involved are really inspired by the standard and dedication of the children and their parents. As one President commented, "All of our members get involved with the competition and they all get a lot out of it, meeting the kids and their parents. We have a really enjoyable time organising and helping with the competition"
The new Youth Service Newsletter is on the District Website click here for more..
For information on the Programmes and Competitions get in touch with the District Youth Service Officer John Loran 
No we have not forgotten Rotakids, Interact and Rotaract we will feature them next time.

DG Jan's Journal

I have continued my journey around the District Clubs. It is wonderful to be made so welcome wherever I go.

I have now reached club visit 34 so half way through, because I think I will be enjoying a virtual visit to the eClub sat in front of my computer which will again be a new experience and one I am looking forward to.
Recruiting seems to be going well, I have sent out 25 welcome letters to new members in the last two months, so let’s keep this up,  we can see the increase of 3% we are asked for by the end of the year. The  "We’re for Communities" campaign is going well and this is also bringing enquiries from prospective members.

Social Media Plays it's Part

More members and Clubs are using social media to communicate what they do. Facebook is being used by Clubs all over the world to inform Rotarians and the general public about our activities and events. Quite a number of Clubs in this district have their own Facebook pages and Twitter feeds with followers. Members exchange ideas and work on projects together. LinkedIn groups comment on various aspects of the Rotary experience. It does not take up a lot of time and is fun. Try it sometime you might be pleasantly surprised.

It's up and running so tell us what you think... on the picture to take you to 'My Rotary" where you can log in. Visit Rotary Club Central and there are lots of new features. It has been generally well received as the website was built getting feedback from members all the time. The new branding is getting a mixed reception. Please view the "Style Book" to see how to use the logo.
