Dear Greenwood Rotarians:
You will not want to miss our exciting program this Tuesday. Every year we sponsor our " Shadow Day ". Our Interact members will entertain us with their experiences as they shadowed their hosts this week. 
Sam Leaman reported that his 'Rotary has Heart'  committee, along with our sister Club [Emerald City], assembled over 200 'snack packs' on Feb. 9. They were distributed to the YMCA and several other youth organizations that we support in the Lakelands area. We continue to 'Light it Up' and we are creating a ripple affect in South Carolina.
Your PE Watson Dorn has printed 1,000 tri-fold color brochures for you to carry in your car for future distribution. When you are at church, a luncheon meeting, a civic gathering or meeting a new friend, you will now be able to go to your vehicle and give your new prospect this handout which gives them a brief overview of what our Club is all about. Inside they find answers to membership, service projects, the Rotary Foundation and the annual costs to be an active member of this vibrant organization. Take 5-10 of these brochures home with you this Tuesday. They will be located at the check-in table in the lobby.
Your Board has made a collective decision to support the "Grace Street Park" which is in Stage One of it's development. We are once again teaming with the Emerald City Club to help construct a children's playground that will provide a natural setting for our children and grandchildren to play in a safe enviroment. We will update you as this project moves forward in 2015.  
Question:  Have YOU invited a friend to one of our lunch meetings this year ??
ROTARY OYSTER ROAST is set for March 14. Our goal for that day is 1,000 people. Bring a them how much Fun Rotarians have and expose them to the Good Works that our Club does for the Greenwood Community !!

Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
San Francisco club reveals formula for growth and retention of members
Members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco Evening meet three times a month at a wine bar after work, share a social outing once a month, and promote all their activities on social media like Meetup and Facebook. As the first evening club in the city, it has attracted many young professionals from Silicon Valley tech firms whose work schedules keep them from joining a more traditional club that meets for breakfast or lunch. But more than that, the evening format has helped the club grow by 30 percent since it received its charter in mid-2013. Danielle Lallement, who was its charter president...
Colorado joins Kosovo club to restore sanitation in blighted local schools
Blighted schools in the mountain city of Peja in western Kosovo are a reminder of the ethnic strife and war that ravaged this area in the 1990s. To restore ruined sanitation facilities in some of those schools, local Rotary members recently partnered with their counterparts from Colorado, USA. Though residents have been slowly rebuilding the city's infrastructure after years of neglect under earlier governments, most resources are going to improve roads, rebuild homes, and create new businesses. Little money remains to restore the schools. As a result, students have fallen ill, stayed home...
Rotary releases $34.8 million for polio immunization activities worldwide

The grants include $8.1 million for Nigeria to support its final push to eradicate the disease. Nigeria...
President-elect urges Rotary members to ‘Be a Gift to the World’
Using their talents, expertise, and leadership, Rotary members worldwide are asked to be gifts to the world this upcoming 2015-16 Rotary year. Rotary International President-elect K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran called Sunday's address to incoming district governors the "most significant moment of my life." "All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift: one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become -- and Be a Gift to the World," said Ravindran, revealing his presidential theme at the annual five-day training meeting...
