What we do internationally...

All Rotarians worldwide are united in a campaign for the global eradication of polio. In the 1980's, Rotarians raised $240 million to immunize the children of the world to completely eradicate polio from the world by 2005; by 2010, the PolioPlus program will have contributed $850 million, and countless hours of volunteer effort to this cause!

The Object of Rotary:

The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

1. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
2. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society;
3. The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business and community life;
4. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service

The 4-Way Test
From the earliest days of the organization, Rotarians were concerned with high ethical standards in their professional lives. One of the world's most widely printed and quoted statements of business ethics is "The 4-Way Test", which was created by a Rotarian, and later adopted by Rotary:
"Of the things we think, say, or do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"

Rotary Motto: "Service Above Self' Rotary Mission Statement:

The mission of Rotary
International is to support its member clubs in fulfilling the Object of Rotary by:
•Fostering unity among member clubs;
•Strengthening and expanding Rotary around the world;
•Communicating worldwide the work of Rotary; and
•Providing a system of international administration


About Rotary
Through Rotary's service programs, a Rotary Club can have a significant effect on the quality of life in its community. Rotary Foundation programs offer opportunities to form international partnerships that help people in need worldwide. Presently, there are 1.25 million Rotarians throughout the world in 190 countries, which make up 31,500 Rotary clubs.

What we do locally_

Community projects that have been provided by our local Rotary organization include:










Attached are a few pictures from Tuesday’s (Aug 9) Titusville Rotary Meeting.  Lee Weber of the Greenville club met us there to Present Haley with a PHF award for her service project and contributions to the Polio Plus End Polio Now campaign.  Lee had heard her speak about her project at the District Conference and approached me about awarding her a PHF.

A Planning Funny

Six-year-old Annie returns home from school and says she had her first family planning lesson at school.

Very interested, her mother asks, "How did it go?"

"I died of shame!" she answers. "Sam from over the road, says that the stork brings babies. Sally next door said you can buy babies at the orphanage. And Pete in my class says you can buy babies at the hospital."

Her mother answers laughingly, "But that's no reason to be ashamed."

"Yes it is! I can't tell them that we were so poor that you and daddy had to make me yourselves!"

Club Program Director Scott Bayline welcomed District Governor Lee Dyer who will be leading 42 Rotary clubs throughout the 2012-2013 year. He went on to say that Lee grew up in Knoxville Tennessee and has been a lifelong University of Tennessee fan. He spent several years in the U S Navy, after which he worked for a research lab in New England. After college, Lee worked in Tennessee, Atlanta and Washington in a variety of sales and management positions, and has worked for Kewaunee Scientific Corp for the last 29 years, retiring early in 2011.  Lee served two terms as President of the Evans City Club and 3 years as an Assistant Governor.

District Governor Address and Goals

ENTHUSIASM, COMMITMENT, PATIENCE, AND GENEROSITY WILL HELP YOU REACH THAT LEVEL OF COMPETENCE AND PEACE THAT YOU DREAM OF.

Fellow Rotarians.
July 1st  means the start of another Rotary year. For most of the things we do it is not a new beginning but a renewal of many efforts from over the years.
We continue with our focus on ridding the world of Polio once and for all. We continue to
work on water filtration projects in the Dominican Republic and our Literacy project in
Haiti. In addition to our R I and district projects, every single one of our clubs are
working on club projects. The combined efforts of our clubs, and the results, are nothing short of amazing. You folks are truly defining “Service Above Self”.

This year’s theme is “Peace Through Service”. Peace is not just the absence of War. Peace means lots of other things that we will be discussing through the year. When people have clean water, food, literacy, and are not handicapped by avoidable diseases, then there is generally peace. Rotarians work hard every day to help create the conditions for peace. We are truly Peacemakers.

Each year Rotary starts anew with new leadership at headquarters, in our Districts, and at the Club level. This brings new energies and fresh ideals to our Rotary efforts. It’s a time for each of us to rededicate ourselves to the tasks that need to be completed along with the new ones we wish start. In my business career it was always bittersweet to finish a fiscal year. To celebrate a year of hard work and good results only to realize at the stroke of midnight it all begins again! I was back at ground zero and the boss was always anxious to forget last year and to discuss the New Year. I tended to mope around for a few days until I disciplined myself to sit down and develop my plan. That
usually took a few days. The closer I got to the end of it, the more enthused I became.
When I finished the new plan I took great pride in presenting it to my company and
taking the action steps necessary to complete that plan with success. Rotary is no
different. I have spent two years planning, training and preparing for this great
responsibility and I’m ready for the action steps to get the job done. I once had a mentor tell me, repeatedly, that “being nervous is only for those who are unprepared.” I believe that the entire District leaders and incoming club presidents and officers are prepared. I believe that your training has been excellent. I believe that you have your plans in place and it’s simply time to execute them.

I look forward to supporting and serving you this year and I welcome each and every
one of you PEACEMAKERS to the tasks at hand. I believe we will all have a banner
year because we are prepared! Now let’s make it happen!
DG-Lee

"Well," said the second little boy, "I'm so tough, I can wear out a pair of jeans in a day."

"That's nothing," said the third boy. "When my parents take me to see my gramma and grampa, I can wear them out in a hour."

Each year we are delighted to view and hear the abilities of those vying for Miss McKean County Fair Queen. Their talents consisted of instrumental and/or vocal songs along with information of themselves and a description of each day of the Fair activities. An important part of the Fair is the practice of cultivating the land and raising stock and then presenting the bounty at the Fairgrounds.
The Fair Queen presentation is always a highlight of the year and we wish them well as Fair Ambassadors.

A Flyswat Funny

I was visiting my son and daughter-in-law last night and I asked if I could borrow a newspaper.

"This is the 21st century, old man," he said. "We don't waste money on newspapers. Here, you can borrow my iPhone."

I can tell you, that fly never knew what hit it!

Program Chairman Christa Schott presented Teresa Wilcox, Director of Juvenile Probation and Michael Dodge, Assistant Director of Juvenile Probation.
Teresa Wilcox            Michael Dodge     Christa Schott
They explained the meaning of Balanced and Restorative Justice which is that: Victims of crime, the community and juvenile offenders should receive balanced attention from the Juvenile Justice System and each should gain substantial benefits from their interactions with the system.
The Boondocks Program benefits youth and communities through stream restoration by way of work experience, victim accountability, skill development, teamwork and many other advantages.
