Rotary & The United Nations: Together in History

Celebrating 75 Years of Joint International Service

The United Nations (UN) serves as a global forum where countries raise and discuss the most difficult issues, including problems of health, climate, education and peace. Since helping to charter the United Nations in 1945, Rotarians and the United Nations have worked together toward peace and addressing humanitarian issues worldwide.

In September 2020, the United Nations reaffirmed its commitment to leave no-one behind, protect our planet, promote peace, engage young people and be better prepared for future crises. These are opportunities for us to take action.

On 10 April 2021, join people of action from around the world for an online event “75 Years of Action,” celebrating Rotarians’ lasting support of the United Nations and the Sustainable Development Goals.

This event- a live premier of reflections and flash talks with first-hand experiences- will emphasize UN officials and Rotarians’ shared values and ongoing history of empowering and connecting people to opportunities through a series of flash talks and brief discussions.

Rotary Means Business

Rotary Means Business District 7390 hosted a Virtual RMB networking event on March 24 for which 23 Rotarians registered and 16 or 17 attended.  The event had members of the Rotary Clubs of Carlisle, Carlisle Sunrise, Hanover, Harrisburg, Harrisburg Keystone, Mechanicsburg North, Lancaster Hempfield, Lancaster Penn Square, Paradise, and York North attend along with two out-of-district guests from the Chicagoland Chapter of the Rotary Means Business Fellowship.  Also, another guest was from New Jersey but had attended Chicagoland events and another guest was from New York and is the Vice Chair of the RMB Fellowship.
Scott Stevens, the President of the Governing Board of District 7390 RMB, ran a very smooth and fun meeting during which a lot was accomplished and great business connections were made.  Linda Kemp, the co-founder of the Chicagoland RMB Fellowship Chapter # 100, gave a brief talk about two very helpful networking apps (HiHello and Bomb Bomb) and discussed her upcoming hybrid (in person and virtual)  Chicagoland RMB networking event on April 15 at the newly renovated Chicago-area home of Rotary International founder Paul Harris.  District Governor John Anthony gave a short presentation regarding the upcoming virtual District 7390 Conference April 30 to May 2.  Everyone had a chance to give their elevator pitch concerning their businesses and then the meeting broke down twice into smaller groups for more in depth discussion giving everyone a chance to know one another better.  
All in all the 61st RMB District 7390 networking event gave everyone an opportunity for great fun, fellowship, and successful business networking.  RMB District 7390 and the RMB Fellowship will be prominent parts of the upcoming district conference.  Please do not miss this opportunity to participate again in Rotary Means Business.

Missed the bus with applying for a 2021-2022 District Grant? 

Missed the bus with applying for a 2021-2022 District Grant?
No worries!
You can still “HOP ON THE BUS” with us!
While the March 15 deadline for submitting the Form of Intention for 2021-2022 District Grants may have already passed, you can still be a part of a District Grant by joining our multi-club, district-wide project. You can learn more about the project on our club’s website HERE or by watching DG John Anthony’s VLOG HERE.
We are still in need of ONE MORE CLUB to be a grant partner along with the Harrisburg Keystone, West Shore, Mechanicsburg North, and Littlestown clubs! And even if you already have your own District Grant project lined up, you can still join other clubs, such as the Lancaster South and Perry County clubs, that have generously donated to this project in addition to their own club projects. Our club has set up a donation link HERE, and each donation, whether from clubs or individuals, help us reach our $25,000 District Grant goal and push this bus a little closer to finish line!
Just as a reminder, we’re also offering to match up to $500 of each club’s donations (Read more about the matching challenge HERE). So far, that’s already added up to $2150 in additional money going towards the project.
We know that by working together we can multiply the good that we can do in the world.  Thank you so much for your consideration!
Yours in Rotary,
Meg & Duke
