                       Greetings from Singapore, where the Chinese year of the Dragon is off to a rollicking

                       Along with the new year, I am also beginning the final

                       bit hard to talk about what exactly goes on. But for my       part, one of my biggest projects during my time has
                       been working with a team of experts from Asia, Austra-
                       lia, the US and Europe on an in-depth report examining
                       Asia-Pacific peace agreements for the degree to which
                       they include women and gender issues. A quick sum-
                                                                                    Visiting Angkor Wat, Cambo-
                       mary: they don’t. Unfortunately, this comes as no sur-
                       prise when you learn that out of 21 major peace proc-
                       esses since 1992, only around 2% of the participants have been women. Women may
                       make up half the population, may be heads of their households, may be the most vocal
                       activists for peace, and sadly, may suffer disproportionately as victims of rape and other
                       war atrocities. However, they continue to be left out of peace processes, which ironically
                       give much more attention to men with guns than women with ideas.

                       So, my work here at HD has been an effort to change that. With our organization’s deep
                       networks of active conflict negotiators, we are in a good position to exert some influence
                       that just might make a difference. Our report will make some tangible recommendations
                       on how peace agreements can be more inclusive of women and their concerns – which
                       turn out to be concerns that affect everyone in a community, be they about livelihood,
                       safety, access to resources or participation in local government.

                       These past few months have also been filled with travel around Asia, with a trip to
                       Bangkok to participate in the Asia-Pacific Mediation Leadership Summit, which was a
                       wonderful opportunity to network as well as to share some of my own growing expertise
                       in some of the panel discussions. I also visited Cambodia to learn about the past geno-
                       cide and the current UN war crimes tribunal that is now taking place. And finally, I just
                       wrapped up a brief trip to the UNESCO World Heritage City of Malacca in Malaysia. I’ll be
                       back in Brisbane for my final semester at UQ next month, but for now, I’m soaking up
                       every moment of this amazing experience!

                                   AWARENESS INITIATIVE”
                       Although Rotary has high name recognition, not many people, especially in the USA,
                       really know what today’s Rotary does and is. To correct that, Rotary International es-
                       tablished grants for districts that are different from Foundation grants. These are public
                       relations grants, and Rotary Public Image Coordinators (RPIC) have been appointed to
                       help districts design programs that can be funded by these grants.

                       Dr. Sarah Maben, assistant RPIC, and I are responsible for Area 21B, which includes
                       nine of the ten districts in Texas. This year, five of those nine received such grants, in-

by e-mail at:          in each district has a public relations chair. All nine districts in Area 21B now have a         public relations chair, but not all of the clubs do. To help them the RPICs travel to areas
                       and give workshops to assist clubs and districts.

                       Rotary International sees the grants as support for Rotary’s strategic plan to tell Ro-
                       tary’s story, maximize limited funding and mobilize districts, clubs and Rotary members.
                       In 2012, the application date for grants has been moved up to March 4 to give a longer
                       time for campaigns after awards are granted.

                       Assisting the awareness process at the national level, RI is examining the revitalization
                       of the Rotary “brand.” There are so many versions of Rotary’s various activities, each
                       with its own symbol, that the image of the central organization has become fuzzy.

                       RI has now completed phase one of six phases for this revitalization. This was the re-
                       search phase. For assistance to RI’s PR staff, the firm of Siegel+Gale was hired and has

                                           “It’s Good News!”
                        We’ve all heard the “good news – bad news” lines, right? Well, when it comes to the Ro-
                        tary District 5790 Four Way Test Speech Contest, it’s all GOOD NEWS!

                        Clubs are jumping on the band wagon and promoting the contest with their local schools.
                        31 of our clubs have registered with Club Participation forms this year. That’s a 50% in-
                        crease over 2011 and that’s because some clubs are hosting a contest for the first time
                        this year, some are hosting one again after having taken a year or more away from the
                        contest, and some clubs are die hard, “every single year this is a priority” for the contest.
                        I don’t have figures on which club has held the contest the most years consecutively but I
                        know some don’t even question whether they’re doing it. They know they are.

                        Anybody who has ever heard a group of high school students give their 5 minute speeches
                        on “What the Four Way Test Means To Me” knows that those 24 words have far greater
                        significance than mere words recited at a Rotary Club meeting. And the speech contest
                        introduces students, their family and school faculty, to the guiding principles of the test.

                        Imagine a class full of students challenged to be the 4 or 5 who get to go to a Rotary
                        meeting to compete for cash prizes. Now that classroom learns about the Four Way Test.
                        Then they hear speech after speech, maybe a dozen or more competing for those 4 or 5
                        slots. Some speeches are very good, some are pretty good, and some are not so good,
                        about the significance of that Four Way Test in the students’ lives. Those students are
                        practicing their speeches at home in front of their parents, grand parents and siblings . . .
                        likely anybody willing to sit still and listen for 5 minutes. All those people hear about the
                        Four Way Test. And I’m betting some lives are changed, just from being introduced to
                        words we Rotarians see on a blue and gold banner and recite every week from memory.

                        The Four Way Test is not merely 24 little words. No. The Four Way Test is a set of life
                        changing ethical principles that should be shared with the masses. So if your club is not
                        hosting a Four Way Test Speech Contest this year, why not find a club near you that is.
                        Then do a make-up so you can see what it means to these kids. Then next year you can
                        champion holding a Four Way Test Speech Contest in your club too. Your club members
                        will love it. Your local high school will love it. And those student contestants will grow in
                        knowledge, understanding and ability as they offer us speeches written from their hearts.

                                                          Angel Tree Project just prior to the Christmas season. We
                                                          man the booth at Ridgmar Mall each weekend for about six

                                                          Another project with which our club has been involved for
                                                          the past six years has been Kid’s Club. The first Thursday of
                                                          each month at Ridgmar Mall we
                           sponsor this event. Children come and paint canvasses (often
                           making a donation to our club). These canvasses are then
                           pasted on the wall outside Macy’s Department Store. Over 900
                           such canvasses have been completed thus far. Unfortunately,
                           the mall leased the space behind “the wall”, so they are seek-
                           ing another location in the mall for our canvas paintings.

                           We are excited about an upcoming fundraiser. The seven local clubs in Fort Worth (along
                           with the Rotary Club of Azle) will be hosting a Wine Tasting at the T&P station in down-
                           town Fort Worth this April. Each club will provide a wine vendor, along with a restauran-
                           teur. Each club also will bring a raffle item for an auction. Proceeds will benefit each of the
                           clubs, as well as PolioPlus.

                                   “Celebrating 60 Years, Con’t”
We are happy to report that the Interact/AHHS club has been revitalized. A new faculty liaison, Cody Cox, has be-
gun his work with the students this year. The president of Interact is Jonathan Price, with Marissa Robles as vice-
president. They are going great guns and having a wonderful time. Over $700 was raised by the club by placing
containers in each of the classrooms at Arlington Heights High School for loose change and bills. These funds were
sent to PolioPlus. The club is also having bi-weekly meetings with a project of some kind each month. Some 35
students are involved at the moment.

The Freshman Committee at WFW has chosen to design and sell Polo shirts for PolioPlus. As part of the previous
tradition the first $1000 dollars will be donated to local charities of the committee’s choice. The choice for the
charity this year was for the Tarrant County Area Food Bank’s Community Kitchen Culinary School. The $1000 will
provide knife sets to the students with perfect attendance in each of the three classes this year. This committee
completed our first donation on 1/21/12 in which five students successfully had perfect attendance. The remainder
of the proceeds at the end of the year will be donated to The Rotary Foundation’s End Polio Now campaign. The
cost of the shirts is $40 with $15 of that purchase being a donation. There are a variety of colors to choose from
and we are selling both men’s and women’s designed polos. Our goal for sales is 100 polo shirts.

The Rotary Club of Western Fort Worth is strong and healthy. We welcome fellow Rotarians from around the dis-
trict to join us for lunch and fellowship any Tuesday at noon.
