Guest Speaker: No Guest Speaker, we enjoyed fellowship.
Our thanks go to Carol Koser and Nick Slow for hosting the Home Meeting at
their beautiful home at Brookfield. It was a wonderful night of fellowship
where, everyone brought something to eat or drink so much in fact that we all
went back for seconds both for mains and deserts. It was so successful that I am
sure we are all thinking of where the next one should be.

 A Rotary Grace                             THE FOUR-WAY TEST
 We break thy bread in brotherhood,         ‘Of the things we think, say or do’.
 And thank thee Lord for all things good,   1. Is it the truth?
 May we more blessed than we deserve        2. Is it fair to all concerned?
 Live less for self and more to serve       3. Will it build good will and better friendships?
                                            4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

their lovely hillside home.

More than 25,000 Rotarians and volunteers from 35 districts worldwide rolled up their sleeves to improve
their communities as part of Rotarians At Work Day.
Started in 2006 by the late Bob Watson, past governor of District 5340 (California, USA), Rotarians At
Work Day happens the last Saturday in April each year and challenges clubs around the world to carry out
hands-on service efforts in their community.
"It truly is a grassroots project," says Pamela Russell, governor of District 5340. "The day is a great
opportunity to revitalize your club, bring in new members, and generate publicity for Rotary."
Watson's vision was that by 2014, every club and Rotarian would participate, says Russell.
"Imagine the impact when all clubs come together and perform community service projects," she says.
"Thousands of people will benefit both indirectly and directly from just our one-day efforts." Here are a
few of the projects that Rotarians carried out around the globe on 25 April:

        To emphasize the importance of bicycle safety, 15 clubs in District 1410 (Åland Islands; Finland)
         collected 2,000 knapsacks for bike helmets and delivered them to local schools.
        Members of the Rotary Club of Vasco da Gama, Goa, India, helped build two large steel lockers
         for a school in Chicalim.
        More than 100 Rotarians and Rotaractors from District 9200, which covers five countries in
         eastern Africa, planted trees, painted rooms, and repaired cow sheds for the Morning Star
         Children's Ministry for orphans in Nairobi, Kenya.
        A joint effort between the Rotary clubs of Ensenada Riviera, Baja California, Mexico, and
         Newport-Irvine, California, provided more than 100 new chairs to a primary school in Francisco
         Zarco, Mexico. Rotarians also painted part of the school, cleaned up the patio, and planted trees.
        The Rotary Club of Carlsbad, California, started a sustainable vegetable garden at a local
         homeless shelter, allowing residents to grow their own food. Rotarians also painted several areas
         of the facility.
