Upcoming Events
We have all seen the disastrous fires that have erupted, taking lives as well as destroying hundreds of homes and properties across Australia. Rotary is taking action to lead and provide support to families in need.  With the help of the Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS), several Rotary Districts and Clubs have established projects which are ready and able to accept donations. 
 
If you would like to support their efforts, please go to https://rawcs.org.au/ and click on the blue "Donate Now" button.  
On November 26, 2019, Albania was hit with a 6.4 magnitude earthquake.  Several members of our Keystone E-Club were refugees 20 years ago in Albania during the war in Kosovo.  As they still have contacts and association with many in Albania, they have started fundraising efforts to help.  If you would like more information on their efforts and how you can help,  Please click here.
 
Your support will be greatly appreciated.  

Rotary District 7770 is sponsoring a cruise in October 2020 to support the CART Fund. $100 of each ticket will be donated to CART (Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust) to fund research to find a cure for Alzheimer’s. Since its inception, the CART Fund has given $8.2 million in research grants focused on Alzheimer’s disease. Rotarians and non-Rotarians, regardless of club or district affiliation, are invited to join in this opportunity to raise money for CART.

The cruise will depart from Charleston, SC the afternoon of Saturday, October 17, 2020 and return to Charleston the morning of Saturday, October 24, 2020. The ship will be the Carnival Sunshine, which is new to Charleston. The ports of call will be Bermuda and Princess Cays. On one of the nights at sea, we will have a party for those participating in the fundraiser.

Deposits are due  February 10, 2020 and the final payment is due June 25, 2020.  Pricing is dependent on your choice of cabin.  For information on pricing pricing as well as the information sheet which needs to be included with your deposit, please click here.

 

This will be a wonderful opportunity to have a great time, enjoy the fellowship of old friends, meet new friends and support the CART Fund.

Our district has set a goal that all of our clubs declare their support of Rotary International's efforts to Wage Peace by becoming an Active Peacebuilder Club.  The requirements and application process is very simple and we encourage all clubs to join our efforts.
 
 
 

Each Peacebuilder Club will have a seat at the District Peace Committee which is chaired by Diane Chido of the Erie Club.  If you would like more  information or if you have questions please feel free to contact Diane Chido at dchido@dcanalytics.net

 

 
Rotary International Zones 33 & 34 are partnering with Feeding America Food Banks in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and western/central Pennsylvania in the 10 Million Meal Challenge.  The State Associations will support, encourage and facilitate enhanced partnerships between food banks and Rotary Clubs in the pursuit of a goal of raising the equivalent of 10 million meals for the region.  Clubs will "sign up" to join the challenge at www.rizones33-34.org/hunger.  Their Feeding America Food Bank will contact them to start planning together.  
  
Rotary Leadership Institute is designed to provide quality education in Rotary knowledge and leadership skills to Rotarians interested in developing their Rotary participation and to those identified by Rotary Clubs as having potential in club leadership.  The Institute is a three part program, Part I, Part II and Part III.  Each part is a full day and you can take each part as your schedule allows.  These educational opportunities will teach you skills that will benefit the members in their lives and in volunteer service.
