President's Message

Ken Meyer

President 2020-2021
Greetings fellow Rotarians and guests!
Welcome to the Rotary E-Club of One World!

 

Dear members, visitors, and future members of Rotary E-Club of One World:
 
Thanks to everyone in the club who is stepping up and doing amazing work to grow and strengthen our club.  With the normal ebb and flow of life, and on top of that, the not normal stress of the pandemic, every club member will be at a different spot as to what they can contribute to Rotary on any given day.  Know though, that every contribution is appreciated.
 
For Rotary International (RI) this is “Economic and Community Development Month.”  At the RI website is the following statement:
 
“Nearly 1.4 billion employed people live on less than $1.25 a day. Our members promote economic and community development and reduce poverty in underserved communities through training, well-paying jobs, and access to financial management institutions. Projects range from providing people with equipment to vocational training. Our members work to strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.”
 
As members of the Rotary E-Club of One World, each of us can consider what projects we can support to help people in our own communities and in communities across the world to have better paying jobs that lift people out of poverty.
 
Another RI focus for the month of October is World Polio Day on October 24th.  The Group 8 clubs of our Rotary District 5240 have organized a very special event for World Polio Day and everyone is invited. Craig Needham, an attorney in San Jose, will share his amazing and inspiring story of being raised by his mother while she was confined to an iron lung after being paralyzed from Polio.

Finally, I have one more request to each of you for this October message:  Let’s all send to both Gabriella van Rij (gabriellavanreij@gmail.com) and to Ron Regier (rsregier@gmail.com) a short video of ourselves responding to the following question: “To me, Rotary is ___________.”  Our responses should be a max of five words long.  For Gabriella, send two videos, one in landscape mode, and one in upright mode (using your smartphone).  For Ron, just send one video in landscape mode.  Gabriella will compile our videos for a cool banner for our club website.  Ron will compile our videos for a cool video that will be shown at District Conference.
 
 
Sincerely,
 
Ken Meyer, Club President 2020-2021
Rotary E-Club of One World

Language the importance to communicate in different languages
brought to you by our member
Nohemi Romero
 
Nohemi Romero is a new member of our club but has been a fellow Rotarian, she has kindly agreed to introduce her language school to us.
She runs a language school in Cabo San Lucas Mexico while having taught over 30 years both Spanish and English, since 2009 she has expanded with Japanese, Italian, French, and German. 


Thank you, Nohemi, teaching to communicate in a language by sharing ideas, and exchanging information is a vital key to our communication. As Rotarians, we have to adapt our communication and language skills to help serve others even if it is hard to express our thoughts in a second language.
Gabriella
