If you come to this Tuesday's Greenwood Rotary Club meeting you will hear about our local beauty Queen Charley Manley who is working with Charley's Angels in her fight to feed young children here in Greenwood.

Simplified billing process gets positive reviews from club leaders
The single-page invoice that Rotary clubs received in January, which replaces a complex document they'd previously had to complete, is being cheered by many club officers. In the past, club secretaries had to fill out an eight-part semiannual report to calculate the amount their club owed Rotary International for membership dues, subscriptions, and outstanding balances. New members were written in, old members were crossed out, and many calculations were required before the club treasurer could pay the invoice. "Nobody wanted to do the semiannual report; it was confusing," says Gail...
How a simple school project in India became a global grant
Two years ago, U.S. Rotary members in Maine set out to improve the education system in Bikaner, Rajasthan, an Indian city near the border of Pakistan. The Rotary Club of Kennebunk Portside chose Bikaner because club member Rohit Mehta was originally from the area and had connections there. Mehta put the club in contact with Rotarians in India to provide desks for four government-run schools. But when community leaders returned with a request for more desks, the Maine Rotarians decided they had to think bigger. The Rotary Foundation had rolled out its new grant model, which required that the...
Why these Rotary members can’t stop attending conventions
Phyllis Jane Nusz, a past district governor from California, USA, attended her first Rotary International convention in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1997 as an incoming club president. "I have never stopped going since," she says. "It was amazing to see people for the first time from all over the world -- the different languages, dress, and food. But we all had the same dedication to Rotary. "I ran into so many people I never knew before but who today are still my friends, and I share Christmas cards with them, take part in club projects with them, join together for family activities, and so much...

Korean sailor makes waves for End Polio Now
Enjoying calm winds and peaceful Pacific waters, Seung Jin Kim dove off his 43-foot sailboat, the Arapani, to swim with some dolphins nearby. The serenity that day near the equator was a stark contrast to the 60 mph winds and 23-foot waves he had to fight around Cape Horn, the southern tip of South America. But Kim, a veteran sailor and member of the Rotary Club of Seokmun, in Chungcheongnam, Korea, expected such challenges when he set out in mid-October on a 25,600-mile journey around the world. In addition to fulfilling a lifelong dream, Kim is using the trip to raise awareness and funds...
