Our EVS volunteers have been working night and day over the last two weeks and here they are having a well deserved rest after fighting fires throughout the night. They have worked tirelessly in Somerset West, Helderberg, Paarl and lately Simon’s Town. Just look at the ages of these volunteers, it is heartening to know that there are some youngsters ready to help their own and other communities. Most of them will be back at school this week. A HUGE thank you to these selfless heroes!
  
 
CAPTION: A whopping R273 143.60 was raised at the Rotary Clubs of Newlands and Table Bay’s 21st annual wine auction. The money raised at the glamorous gala evening has been donated to the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI), who will be using the funds towards a rescue vehicle for their Station 10 in Simon’s Town. Rotarian Richard Burnett (pictured above left) from the Rotary Club of Newlands, welcomed the guests and opened the proceedings. “The annual wine auction has become quite an institution to raise much-needed funds for the NSRI,” says Burnett. “Being part of this tremendously successful initiative aligns very well with our core value of service above self,” adds Burnett.

Past President Colin Burke organised a wonderful team of youngsters to fly the Rotary Club of Newlands flag. They did well in coming third overall, winning the best spirit award and the best drummer award! Corinne Hudson did a sterling job in organising and providing food and refreshments for the rowers. Terry Lancaster, Graham Findlayson, Andy Ismay, Heidi Anderson, Bill Holland Melinda Stapleton supported the event.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
