AUGUST IS ROTARY MEMBERSHIP MONTH!
Why Join Rotary?
Professional Networking ~ Service Opportunities ~ International Awareness
Friendship ~ Good Citizenship ~ Youth Development ~ Ethical Environment ~ FUN!

It’s where PEOPLE OF ACTION, neighbors, friends and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders,
and take action to create lasting change.
 
    As our club begins celebrating the 100th years of existence (our birthday will be on December 1, 2020) we invite you to join us and more than a million other people world-wide in 35,000+ clubs.
    Want to help locally? Nationally? Worldwide? Rotarians contribute over 16 million volunteer hours every year... and you can be a part of the projects that create lasting solutions!
    And yes, we are still meeting, even in this stressful time of Covid. We meet in person when and where it makes sense, and we offer ZOOM meetings for those who wish to stay home.

DOINGS IN OUR COMMUNITY
 
HOW DO YOU DEMO A SCIENCE LAB IN ONE DAY?
You get seven Club Rotarians together and stand back!
Saint Joseph School says “Thank You!” to Jeremiah Leonard, Misti Tyrin, James Tyrin, Malcolm Chun, Wally Wong, Patrick Smith
and Bobby Dugar. (not in order shown)
 
BACKPACKS!

School will begin soon and many children will need a new backpack.  Why New? Because other keiki will have their new backpacks, but if the child is homeless or living in a poverty situation, that child won’t have the same new thing. It’s very hard to feel “normal” when your clothing or “accessories” don’t match the other keiki. For our “100 things each month”, our club is gathering 100 brand new backpacks for distribution to needy children.
 
AND IN JAPAN....
 
FLOWERS TO HIROSHIMA
“Yesterday, Vice President Toru Nakano, Director Mitsunori Ueno, Secretay Tetsuro Hiraga, Deputy Secretary Naoto Kawai of the Hiroshima South Rotary Club and I, Yuji Saiki, president, went to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park to offer the anthuriums you had sent us for the Atomic Bomb Victims Memorial. I’m sure that the anthuriums will comfort the spirits of the victims.”
