What is Rotary? 

 
 
RI President John F. Germ chose Rotary Serving Humanity as his theme for 2016-17. Noting Rotary’s unique ability to bring together committed professionals to achieve remarkable goals, Germ believes that “now is the time to capitalize on our success: as we complete the eradication of polio, and catapult Rotary forward to be an even greater force for good in the world.”  Watch RI President John Germ discussing the theme.
 

 

WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN TO END POLIO

One of the most important aspects of the fight to eradicate polio is detecting where the disease is present. This continuous surveillance is complicated and costly. Ninety percent of people infected with the virus show no symptoms, and those who do usually have mild symptoms such as fever, fatigue, and headaches. Only one in every 200 cases of the illness results in paralysis, which means that for every child with signs of paralysis, several hundred are carrying the disease and may not show it.  Read the entire article in The Rotarian.
 

 
Club Sponsors Students at Camp RYLA
 
RYLA Camp
 

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is a leadership development program run by Rotary. Over 200 high school students in District 5170 participated in Camp RYLA the week of June 27 at the Mission Springs Camps and Conference Center in Scotts Valley.  RYLA includes presentations, activities, and workshops that cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Leadership fundamentals and ethics
  • Communication skills
  • Problem solving and conflict management
  • Community and global citizenship
The students will be sharing their RYLA experiences with the Club in October.  It will be a meeting that you will not want to miss.  Guest are welcome to attend.
 
 
 
 
Officers of the Castro Valley High School Interact Club shared their experiences and plans for the year at a Club meeting in August 2015.  The Rotary Club of Castro Valley sponsors Interact Clubs at Castro Valley and Redwood Christian High Schools.

 

 
 

The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships.  The test has been translated into more that 100 languages and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:

Of the things we think, say or do

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
