Governor’s November Message: TRF’s Global Impact

By DG Cindi O’Neil

The Rotary Foundation gives us all the opportunity to reach beyond ourselves to serve others in truly significant ways. The Rotary Foundation works to close the gap between those much less fortunate than the rest of us, working to provide clean water and sanitation, healthy mothers and children, prevent disease like Polio, spur economic development, fund literacy and education, support the environment, and ultimately create world peace.

If you pledge $250 per year to the Annual Fund of The Rotary Foundation you enable both your local club, our District, and the World Fund to grow and provide sustaining funds to leverage this important work.

Consider inviting our District Rotary Foundation Committee Chair Tim Mobley to speak to your Club. His stories and knowledge are inspiring reminders of the great impact we can have using the bedrock of support from The Rotary Foundation. Click here for more on the website story about how you can make a difference through the good work of The Rotary Foundation from your club level to the world.

DG Cindi’s Podcast: Once Touched by Need, Service is a Privilege

By Dan Smith

Rotarians in the Rotary Club of Eugene Southowne have been shipping used medical equipment to African medical clinics for 12 years. In partnership with CardioStart International, Rotary receives used medical equipment and supplies that are no longer needed at local hospitals. CardioStart assesses needs in-country making sure that the equipment sent is useful and needed.

CardioStart’s focus is saving lives of children with congenital heart defects though surgery and teaching and training local surgeons during their medical missions. Often just one mission can assist and treat hundreds of patients. The Eugene Southtowne Club accepts the equipment donations and provides careful and thoughtful sorting of equipment and supplies, packing, and coordinating the shipping container to Africa. These donations of equipment are left behind for future use in the clinics, increasing their capacity to serve their community. Learn more here.


5110 Biz of the Week: Dave Kinder Financial Advisor

By Bill Grile

In 1911, Paul Harris wrote that Life in Rotary should be a rational mixture of business, civic activities, and good fellowship. He launched Rotary for like-minded business professionals to amplify their fellowship and through Rotary, to strengthen businesses as well as communities. The D5110 Rotary Business Network (RBN) builds on these core principles established over a century ago. After all, wouldn’t you rather do business with a Rotarian?

This week D5110 salutes a relatively new member of Sutherlin Rotary, Dave Kinder, an Edward Jones Financial Advisor. See more about Dave and his business at Dave Kinder – Financial Advisor – Edward Jones | Rotary Business Network.

Every D5110 Rotarian with a business or profession is entitled to a FREE listing in the Rotary Business Network directory. Click here for more on RBN!

By DG Cindi O’Neil (adapted from a The News Guard article out of Lincoln City)

Bravo to the Rotary Club of Lincoln City! Due to formidable leadership by Rotary President Cindi Fosveit, the Club turned a D5110 allocation of $12,500 in RI Disaster Relief Funds into $32,555 to help fire victims re-tool and return to work.

Fifty-one people benefited and received tools to return to work.

To fund this program, Rotary Club of LC received a $12,500 grant from the RI Disaster Relief Fund, and then solicited donations of $4,150 from their own club, $3,655 from the Rotary Club of Seaside, $4,000 from the OR State Chamber, $1,000 from NW Natural, $3,500 from a Lincoln County grant, and $3,750 from Mills ACE Hardware, for a total of $32,555.
