Michelle O'Brien DGE...Watch out for her Sitka District Conference video...to be unveiled at District Conference)
From Michelle:
Believe it or not, the new year is right around the corner.  2016-2017 is a historic year for Rotary. It is not only the 100th Anniversary of the Rotary Foundation, but also the 30th Anniversary of Women in Rotary.  Not only that, but there is a very real chance that polio just might be eradicated.

There are many exciting initiatives taking place:
**More flexible membership options
**Creative ways to give to the Rotary Foundation, and how we will recognize those gifts
**The formation of new Rotary Community Corps around the District
**A mentorship initiative for younger Rotarians
**A vigorous effort to attract younger professionals to Rotary
And, of course, much, much, more.

DGN Michelle is passionate about Youth Exchange and the long term affects on our youth. Click on this link and see what her daughter Devin O'Brien is doing:

As we set to turn the corner on another year, I hope to see you in Talkeetna, where we will have another opportunity at District Assembly to discuss these District Team Goals and what you would like to see out of your Rotary District.

See you soon!

Want Ads!!!

"Brand New! District 5010 Want Ads. We want you!!!

What do we want? We want you and your ideas. For example, how many of you know about how the District is structured or what District positions there are. Or how you could get a District position that is an area you might be interested in. The Want Ads section we may be able to offer some information. We hope to be able to publish District jobs or projects that are either vacant or forecast to be vacant. The ad would include what the position is and what it entails. Also we would list time frames and desirable qualifications. There are a lot of cool District positions that could stimulate your Rotary passion. Jobs where you can really make a difference. But it doesn't have to be just job openings.

Annual Fund and Polio Plus Giving Year to Date
As we start April, we are three fourths of the way through this Rotary year.  Let's look at our giving to the Rotary Foundation.
-        Twenty of our 39 clubs have over $100.00 Per Capata Giving to the Annual Fund.
-        Ten of our 39 clubs recognize over 80% of their members as "Every Rotarian Every Year" participants.
-        Four of our 39 clubs recognize over 80% of their members as "Paul Harris Sustaining Members."
-        The district recognizes 622 Paul Harris Sustaining Members, 233 Paul Harris Fellows, 8 Major Donors, and 64 Rotarians eligible for Paul Harris Society membership because of their generous support.
-        The district has 131.42% Per Capata Giving to the Annual Fund; however,
-        The district has achieved only 67.7% of its goal for giving to the Annual Fund.
-        The district has achieved 132.8 % of its goal for giving to the Polio Plus Fund.
-        The district is recognized as one of the three most generous districts in our zone supporting the Polio Plus Fund.
Now is the time to finish what we started.   Let's contribute another $106,000.
-        Has your club held its annual Rotary Foundation event?
-        Has your club treasurer sent the check to the Rotary Foundation with both club and Rotarian contributions?
-        Has each Rotarian in your club given their support for the Rotary Foundation, either through your club or directly to the Foundation?
-        Has each Rotarian in your club achieved their desired level of support as a "Paul Harris Sustaining Member, A Paul Harris Fellow, a Multiple Paul Harris Fellow, a Paul Harris Society Member, or as a Major Donor?
Remember, our support for the Rotary Foundation is eliminating Polio, resolving local water and sanitation problems, and funding scholarships.

District 5010 hosted the 22st annual Rotary Youth Leadership Awards in The Golden Heart City, Fairbanks, Alaska, Pikes... April 14th  - 17th, 2016.
RYLA is a program for teens that are high school sophomores and juniors/in grade 10 and 11.
RYLA Alumni and Rebound Rotary Exchange students (on a space available basis) are also welcome to apply. There is no cost to youth who are selected, as the local Rotary Club pays for the RYLA participants.
RYLA emphasizes leadership, citizenship and personal growth, as participants learn about their own qualities/skills as a leader and the qualities of effective leaders and effective teams. The RYLA program consists of a combination of icebreaker, team building, and experiential problem solving activities as well as group discussions and personal reflection. Participants are introduced to practical leadership topics and issues; presentations from Rotary and community leaders. Opportunities are provided to allow RYLA participants to apply their emerging leadership skills in a variety of challenging activities. We also want the RYLA experience to be memorable with other activities including a barbecue, recreational activities.

The event is co-planned by both RYLA Alumni and Rotarians. RYLA Alumni make sure that the program is fun and relevant to their peers. Alumni have innovative ideas that make sure the days are as interactive as possible and that the adults do not talk for too long. They serve as Alumni Leaders and Facilitators at the event - an opportunity some of the 2016 RYLA participants will have in 2017. We believe that the large number of teens that want to return as RYLA Alumni is an excellent indicator that the program holds the right balance of fun and skill building.
For information about RYLA, check out our Frequently Asked Questions FAQs under Downloads.  If you have any additional questions, contact one of the Rotarians below.
Thank you for supporting RYLA!

Shelter Box - Ecuador!!!
The Ecuadorian government has formally requested international aid and the shelter cluster has been activated. A ShelterBox Response Team, led by Jon Berg (UK) and Kara Lapso (US), is now traveling to Ecuador to assess the level of destruction and what type of emergency shelter is needed. ShelterBox has pre-positioned aid in nearby Colombia, as well as in Panama and Bolivia, which can be quickly transported into the country if a deployment is activated.
This earthquake follows a string of disasters disrupting the lives of families all around the world. In the last week alone, there have been other quakes in Japan, Myanmar, Vanuatu and Afghanistan. The people of Fiji are struggling in the aftermath of Cyclone Winston. Conflict rages on in Cameroon, while floods have devastated parts of Paraguay, and the ongoing conflict and subsequent refugee crisis continues from Syria.

We need to pre-position ShelterBoxes, ShelterKits, tents and other lifesaving equipment to shelter families displaced by disaster and conflict. Behind each of these emergencies, there are families left without homes, food, blankets, light or hope. Help ShelterBox stay prepared for the worst day ever.

Juneau Interact Club!
Juneau Douglas High School Interact 2015-2016
Achieves the Presidential Citation
NOTE: Clubs must document meeting at least five of eight goals; this club documented meeting six goals toward the Citation
Participate in at least one activity that promotes international understanding.
Throughout November, JDHS Interact gathered toys through an advisory competition to send to children in developing world countries through Operation Christmas Child. When presenting the project to our classes and creating announcements for our school's bulletin board and the intercom, members learned more about why the project is important and why our club chooses to participate in it year after year. Members learned why donating a towel and soap was just as important as donating a toy, since all things are usually difficult to acquire and are thus valued just as much. And through teaching peers what they should donate, this understanding was further solidified in our brains.
Introduce your members to other Rotary opportunities for young leaders, such as RYLA and Rotary Youth Exchange.
During our weekly lunch meetings, camps like RYLA and programs like Rotary Youth Exchange are almost always mentioned. This year, there were two applicants to RYLA after promoting it a month before the deadline. As for the Rotary Youth Exchange, we held a small party welcoming our current Exchange students from both JDHS and TMHS where they could try food and hang out. During this party, Interactors were welcome to come and meet the students and learn more about the program.
Participate in an event to build awareness of, or to raise funds for, the polio eradication campaign.
Towards the beginning of the Interact year, several members of the JDHS Interact club participated in a fun run and/or participated in a radio show as part of Rotary's polio eradication campaign. At the fun run, a member of ours helped and sold waffles as part of the cause. At the radio event, two members sat in at KINY to help boost World Polio day, and helped man the fundraising stand that was outside the radio station. Later that week members gave out leftover PolioPlus pins to friends to spread awareness.
Participate in a school or community service project or fundraiser that supports one of Rotary's areas of focus.
In November, the JDHS Interact club organized, led, and participated in the Homeless Awareness Sleep Out. Members learned about homelessness in Alaska through various educational activities, promoted awareness before, during, and after the event, and also raised almost $3,000 for the Juneau School District Homeless Fund and the Zach Gordon Youth Center.
Collaborate with one of Rotary's service partners.
When working in events put on by Rotary, we work their many partners. Examples include gift-packing at the Salvation Army, Glory Hole meal preparation and PolioPlus.
Participate in a career day or mentoring activity.
In March, a couple of our Interact members participated in Read Across America. Members stressed the importance of reading and helped young children with arts and crafts while at the event.
[JDHS Interact is sponsored by the Juneau Gastineau Rotary Club]

Want a great way to immerse yourself in the mission of Rotary?  Take 25 fellow Rotarians and family to Project Amigo near Colima Mexico!  President Charlie Williams of Glacier Valley Rotary led 16 Rotarians and 10 family members to Central America to spend a week doing construction work and literacy projects in and among the sugar cane migrant camps in the central Mexican State of Colima.  Project Amigo has been around for about 30 years and is the result of the long and hard work of Ted and Susan Rose, Rotarians from California, who saw the desperate need to improve the healthcare and educational attainment of the indigenous population of Mexico.  Project Amigo sponsors 'work weeks' in which you fly into or out of Manzanillo (an AK Air destination) or Guadalajara, and are picked up and delivered to Cofradia de Suthcitlan, Colima, Mexico.  Accommodations are modern and nice, food is provided and you get to witness the meaning of rotary in 8 days.  It's safe and a great place to take your kids, and is life changing.  Cultural and sightseeing is part of the package too!  Want more information?   www.projectamigo.org or email Charlie at  vpc@gci.net or Max Mertz at  max@ermcpa.com.  Three pictures of the trip:

Juneau Youth Exchange meet with the Alaska Governor Walker

The Juneau Exchange Students from Rotary, YES, AFS and Amicus got the chance to meet with Governor Bill Walker this Tuesday. It was a 30-minute talk about our impressions about Alaska, our surprises, discoveries, adventures,... It was really interesting and a great experience. 

Type caption text here.
Rotarians supports the Sertoma club (you can see the Rotary logo in the image of Les and Keany in the super-hero pose.  They were superheroes!) so, it's Rotarian's (and our YE student from Indonesia) joining forces with another service organization (several other Rotarians are Sertomans as well--Sondra Kaplan, Eddie Ezell, etc.) Also,  Les raised the most money for the plunge and our Rotary Students raised the most as group (girls and Keany?).
