Our EVS volunteers have been working night and day over the last two weeks and here they are having a well deserved rest after fighting fires throughout the night. They have worked tirelessly in Somerset West, Helderberg, Paarl and lately Simon’s Town. Just look at the ages of these volunteers, it is heartening to know that there are some youngsters ready to help their own and other communities. Most of them will be back at school this week. A HUGE thank you to these selfless heroes!

The surfboards were donated by The Liberty Wharf Trust through the Rotary Club of Newlands.
  
 
CAPTION: A whopping R273 143.60 was raised at the Rotary Clubs of Newlands and Table Bay’s 21st annual wine auction. The money raised at the glamorous gala evening has been donated to the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI), who will be using the funds towards a rescue vehicle for their Station 10 in Simon’s Town. Rotarian Richard Burnett (pictured above left) from the Rotary Club of Newlands, welcomed the guests and opened the proceedings. “The annual wine auction has become quite an institution to raise much-needed funds for the NSRI,” says Burnett. “Being part of this tremendously successful initiative aligns very well with our core value of service above self,” adds Burnett.

Past President Colin Burke organised a wonderful team of youngsters to fly the Rotary Club of Newlands flag. They did well in coming third overall, winning the best spirit award and the best drummer award! Corinne Hudson did a sterling job in organising and providing food and refreshments for the rowers. Terry Lancaster, Graham Findlayson, Andy Ismay, Heidi Anderson, Bill Holland Melinda Stapleton supported the event.

On 3 October 2016, we held a STOP HUNGER NOW event at our Club. We packed 26 boxes!

The food was distributed to the Rainbow ECD Centre in Masi by Blanche Stephenson; Phillippi Educare by Anthony Galloway; Masakhane Educare in Mbekweni, Paarl by Tony van der Lith and to Lucinda Evans by Corinne Hudson for her organisation called Philisa Abafazi Bethu. Thank you to everyone who took the trouble to deliver these food parcels. They were gratefully accepted by the recipients.

News from Rotary International
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...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
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...
The Rotarian Conversation with Ban Ki-moon
One of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s earliest memories is of fleeing with his family into the mountains during the Korean War, his village burning behind him. His father and grandfather had to forage for food in the woods; his mother gave birth to his siblings away from anything remotely resembling a health facility. “I have known hunger,” he says. “I have known war, and I have known what it means to be forced to flee conflict.” The soldiers who came to their rescue were flying the blue flag of the United Nations. The UN provided them with food and their schools with books....
Culture: Life in the bike lane
Like a lot of us, I spent much of my childhood riding bikes, but fell out of the habit for a while. Forty years. Then my wife and I moved to New York, where cyclists risk their necks in a daily Thunderdome of cabs, police cars, firetrucks, double-decker buses, messengers on motorbikes, and delivery trucks backing around corners at 20 miles an hour. Not for me! At least not until my 50th birthday, when my metabolic furnace flamed out. Calories started going directly from beer bottle to beer belly. It was time to start exercising. Either that or give up Samuel Adams, and I couldn’t do that to...
