Mount Kisco Rotary helps raise funds for the Mount Kisco Little League:
 
 
Several Rotarians came out on this beautiful Saturday afternoon in April.  It was opening day for Little League, which means the Mount Kisco Rotary is also around to help kick off the baseball season.
 
For many years the Mount Kisco Rotary Club has come out to Leonard Park to help raise funds for this local baseball organization.
 
It's a great community day in Mount Kisco and the village looks forward to this day each year.
 
The Rotary Club gives back by selling hamburgers, hotdogs, beverages and snacks. All of the proceeds raised goes towards supporting the Mount Kisco Little League Organization.

Mount Kisco Rotary Club honor Gretchen Zierick & Viktor Solarik for the 2015-2106 Paul Harris FellowShip:

 

The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of US$1,000 to The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International.

It was established in 1957 to show appreciation for and encourage substantial contributions to what was then the Foundation’s only program, Rotary Foundation Fellowships for Advanced Study, the precursor to Ambassadorial Scholarships. 

The first Paul Harris Fellows include 1937-38 RI Director Allison G. Brush and longtime RI Treasurer Rufus F. Chapin, both for donations made in 1946. Mrs. Adan Vargas was the first woman to receive the recognition, for a gift made in 1953. Mrs. Harry L. Jones was the second, and one of only five people recognized for contributions made in 1957.

Diasy Jopling joined us today as Judy's guest and gave a brief background on where she grew up in London, and how she has toured the world with her own band playing classical/rock violin.  She has become involved with many schools engaging & encouraging students from 7 - 18 years of age to get involved with music.  The impact has been very rewarding for all parties involved including herself, her band, the students, parents, teachers and all associated parties.
 
Today she came in with her 250 year old Violin to give a brief demonstration of what you would see at one of her concerts.
 
For those who missed it, I have uploaded a video for your viewing enjoyment:

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,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
