August is membership and new club development month; therefore, we will look at letters C and D as we 'Serve to Change Lives". 
 
C: Create and cultivate an inviting club environment where everyone will feel welcome. We encourage all members to invite friends, co-workers, and family members to join us for all talent and skills are welcome.
 
Our goal as Rotarians is to create and maintain an inclusive club environment- where everyone is heard, making the crack in the concrete for the rose to grow. With creation comes risk; for us to grow, we will try new things, some may fail, but those that work will improve our Clubs and in turn Rotary and the world around us.

The Rotary Club of Old Montreal has great pleasure to share that Past President Amina Gerba, member of our club, has been appointed by her Excellency Mary Simon, Governor General of Canada to sit in the House of Senate of Canada from the 29th of July 2021 following a recommendation from Prime Minister, the Right Honorable Justin Trudeau. Congratulations Amina!
 
Amina Gerba is an entrepreneur with over 25 years of experience. An ambassador for Afro-optimism, she has acted as an economic link between Canada and Africa for many years.

In 2020-21, we were able to turn the corner on our Annual Fund giving in our District – the highest since 2017-18 at $157,354US which is $97.67US per capita…just a few dollars under the global goal of $100US per capita. We are now moving in the right direction!
 
Yet, only 15% of our clubs have entered Foundation goals for this Rotary year in Rotary Club Central, so it’s hard to project where we might be this time next year.
 
What our Foundation Committee members don’t understand is why there are 14 clubs which, again, didn’t even donate $1 to our Foundation-either individually or as a club.  The Rotary Foundation is the ‘engine’ which powers our local and international projects – projects where Rotarians are doing good in the world and proud of it!  Take a look at all of the successful projects on Rotary Showcase.
 
The Foundation is why we are almost done eradicating polio in our world.  Who couldn’t be proud of that?!
 
Our Committee would like to hear why YOUR club members support Our Foundation – and plan to do so again this year.  Please send all responses to our District Rotary Foundation Chair at bonnie.black@rotary7040.com by August 20th. We'll share them here in the coming months and at District meetings.

Rotary’s impact starts with our members — people like ourselves who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. Without active members, Rotary would not exist.  But how do we demonstrate our value to potential new members and our current members?

The following article and images appeared in the Rotary District 7030 Newsletter
 
The Rotary Club of Central Port of Spain (RCCPOS) and the Rotary Club of West Ottawa (RCWO) are collaborating to provide educational support to the children located on the Beetham Estate in Trinidad, W.I.
 
The Beetham Estate is a well-known crime hot spot just outside the capital city of Port of Spain, with limited opportunities for its residents. This Rotary collaboration builds on the assistance provided over decades by RCCPOS primarily to the All-in-One Child Development Centre (a preschool) and the Each One Teach One school.
 
The project will span three years, from February 2020 to June 30, 2022, with projects including infrastructure maintenance/refurbishment, educational materials (computers, library materials), kitchen appliances, stationery and food hampers.
 
Then President of the RCWO Caroline De Witt, is originally from Trinidad and Tobago, and after the devastation of the recent volcano eruption in St Vincent and the Grenadines, reached out to see how her club could help. After an appeal to her members and the wider diaspora, they made a donation of USD 11,453 towards the Rotary Disaster Relief.
It is amazing to know that in Canada we have problems with drinking water. Rotary has built so many wells and supported communities around the world and now we have an opportunity to do so in our own country.
 
If your club is looking to support an Indigenous project that will allow you to Serve to Change Lives, then this is a project for you to support. District 7010 is requesting for funds to support drinking water on First Nations reserves. The government funds the building and Infrastructure but for sustainability they need more training. Rotary understands this that with any project it is critical that when the building is done, and we leave the communities need to support it onward.
 
If you are interested read the article below for details and contact them to speak to your club on this project and how you can help. You can contact them through their website.

Rotary International just issued language strengthening its statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). You can read it here. That update says Rotary is: “...committed to being honest and transparent about where we are in our DEI journey as an organization, and to continuing to learn and do better.”
 
How can our clubs take, action “…so that each person has the necessary access to resources, opportunities, networks, and support to thrive.” How can we individual Rotarians help to create an inclusive culture where each person knows they are valued and belong? Educate yourself. Talk with others. Expand your knowledge and strengthen your and your club's comittment to diversity, equity and inclusion by registering for the September 17th DTA session and attending monthly DEI committee meetings.
