Latest News

When we feel fear we are motivated to act (maybe that's why there is a run on TP)  but in times like these it's important not to obsess on the news.  Emotions are contagious  When we don't have information we spiral.  These days the news is just plain scary.  As Rotarians, it is important to look at the big  picture, stay safe but continue to ask how can we serve.  HEB asked everyone to "leave some for your neighbor'  Remember we are all in this together.  Let's not forget that polio also terrorized the nation and Rotarians took that challenge on when a vaccine was developed.  Fear is a terrible thing.  We are at a moment when everyone is looking for guidance.  This is a time for Rotarians to step up but we are just not sure what to do which is why we need to continue to meet, talk and be the voice of calm.  Rotary e-club Central Texas can continue to meet on Zoom and let's invite other Rotarians and friends to join in the meetings and conversations.  Hope to see everyone on Tuesday at 6:00 on Zoom. Check member e-mail for Zoom link each week.

I spend a lot of time thinking of family, not just my own or the extended family of Rotary, but also the families we are helping in the communities we serve. In many parts of the world, mothers and children face challenges to survive that most of us will never comprehend. According to the World Health Organization, the risk of a woman in a low-income country dying during pregnancy or childbirth, or from related causes, is about 120 times higher than that of a woman living in a high-income country. It is encouraging that infant mortality rates are declining globally, yet 4 million babies annually still die within the first year of life.

Rotary International President-elect Holger Knaack is encouraging Rotarians to seize the many opportunities Rotary offers to enrich their lives and the communities they serve. Knaack, a member of the Rotary Club of Herzogtum Lauenburg-Mölln, Germany, revealed the 2020-21 presidential theme, Rotary Opens Opportunities, to incoming district governors at the Rotary International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA, on 20 January.

 

 

 

Rotary isn’t just a club for people to join, but rather “an invitation to endless opportunities,” said Knaack, who becomes president on 1 July. He emphasized that Rotary creates pathways for members to improve their lives and the lives of those they help through service projects.

 

Rotarians  of E-Club Central Texas are making a difference in their communities and by reaching around the world with Rotary Foundation Global Grants.  We are so excited to be working on our first global grant with four clubs in Nepal to provide teacher training and technology in their schools.   If you would like to donate it will count towards a P.H. award and make a big difference.   Contact Suresh Pahwa on the details. Thank you!

Inspired in part by Indiana Jones, space archaeologist Sarah Parcak uses futuristic airborne technology to unearth the treasures of the past.

How do we escape our tangled relationship with a throwaway culture? Rotarians are pointing the way.

Since 2015, more than 4 million people have fled an economically devastated Venezuela. Tracking the stories of three who left puts faces on that staggering statistic.
