Our Club Welcomes You....
 
 Hurricane Dorian has devastated the lives and property of many.  Although the hurricane was one year ago the recovery process for many of those affected has been slow and painful.  A large number of persons displaced by Hurricane Dorian relocated to Eleuthera, however, many of them recently returned to their homes in Abaco.  This past year the Rotary Club of Eleuthera assisted the evacuees by providing food, water, clothing, hygienic items, furniture, rental, and financial assistance.  Many families still reside in Eleuthera and require aid.  One of the families that decided to make Eleuthera their home is a single mom and her three young sons. Rotarians saw the need to assist the single mother and her children.  A donation was made to the family including sheets, towels, water, toiletries, a mattress, clothing, and a propane countertop stove with propane. 
 

 
 
This year has been very difficult for educational institutions globally, nationally, and locally due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Many parents have lost their jobs and are struggling to provide the necessary supplies, etc.  required for their children to return to school.  However, the education of our students is still a priority. As students prepare for the re-opening of school virtually or in person, they will need books, pencils, etc.  On September 18th, 2020 Rotary Club of Eleuthera donated school supplies to P.A. Gibson Primary School, Hatchet Bay, Eleuthera, Bahamas.  The School is the home of one of Rotary Club of Eleuthera’s Earlyact Clubs.  Ms. Jenny McCardy a Teacher and Earlyact Advisor accepted on behalf of the School.
 
 

 

On September 03rd, 2020 Will Simmons Director and Principal of Harbour Island Green School (HIGS) presented at The Rotary Club of Eleuthera. Mr. Simmons shared how important the involvement of the Community has been in the success of HIGS.

Mr. Simmons was employed in the traditional public-school system but felt that he could make a difference in the educational system by creating a community-integrated learning model with better outcomes for the students.

The School’s Vision is to create a relevant educational and community organization that helps children to reach their fullest potential and makes a vital contribution to the surrounding community

Immediate Past President Susan Culmer (L) and President Audrey Carey (R) makes presentations to the Police
 
The COVID-19 Pandemic has caused many hardships for persons including the senior and shut/ins. During the lockdowns due to COVID, the Police of South Eleuthera was busy ensuring the well-being of all residents. On July 31st, 2020, Members of the Royal Bahamas Police Force visited a few single, elderly women living alone in one of the southern communities. Rotary Club of Eleuthera (RCE) supported the Police in this initiative by providing water, cereal, and basic hygienic items for the senior citizens. RCE is always ready to provide aid to the Police and Community.

makes presentation to Bahamas Plastic Movement
 
In early July 2020, The Rotary Club of Eleuthera (RCE) provided support to Bahamas Plastic Movement (BPM) an Environmental Organization by making a financial donation in the amount of $1,166.00.  The funds were used to provide healthy lunch for children who participated in BPM programs during the summer. BPM is a non-profit organization and focuses mainly on Plastic Pollution on the beaches of the Bahamas.  The organization was formed in 2013 by Ms. Kristal Ambrose a native of New Providence.  BPM Plastic Pollution Programs focus on four areas including Art, Youth Activism, Education and Community Outreach.
 
 

 
 
 
In preparation for the 2020 Hurricane Season and well-being of its Members, the Rotary Club of Eleuthera created a Disaster Plan and conducted a Simulation Exercise.  All Clubs were required by District 7020 to carry out the same.  During the simulation exercise, it was noted that a few of the members needed assistance with preparing their homes for the current hurricane season. Therefore, the Club conducted a physical assessment of three (3) of the members’ homes (single females) that needed attention, including roof repairs and construction/installation of shutters.  A project to construct storm shutters for single female Rotarians mainly a single mother was carried out.  Club Members also need to feel safe and know that their property is secured before they can assist others.  The project was led by RCE Disaster Chair Audley Meadows in partnership with Meadows Construction.
 
 
 
Our Rotary family grew by two (2) new members during the month of 2020 when we welcomed Chief Superintendent Stephen Adderley, Officer in Charge of the Eleuthera District and Brian Major, an Entrepreneur and Businessman. Both gentlemen are at the pinnacle of their respective careers and bring a wealth of knowledge, experience, and passion to positively propel the work of Rotary on our island.

MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT GOVERNOR CHARLES SEALEY
Month of July 2020

Fellow Rotarians,

There is always excitement and intrigue at the start of the Rotary year. We remind ourselves of what we have done but also busy ourselves with plans of the many things we intend to accomplish. Our task is to maintain momentum and consistently execute. This year has educated us on one more reality; the need to be ready to pivot. We can remain confident that opportunities to serve will make themselves available whether we plan for them or not.

This year, by many, has been dubbed the “New Norm”. This is in reference, primarily, to the state of affairs produced by the Covid-19 pandemic. Although I subscribe to the notion that this is a New Norm, I believe that the new norm is in fact that when faced with a challenge that forces us to change, we can adapt and survive. That change does bring with it an opportunity to stretch our imaginations and design the unconsidered. It is a riveting time to be a Rotarian.

As you navigate possibilities, know that the Rotary machine is constantly upgrading in order to provide timely support and valuable information. Details that were once difficult to ascertain are readily available and easy to digest. Rotarians can now learn more and travel the world of Rotary on our virtual platforms. This year, you are encouraged to have your clubs not only engage the virtual environments but also to populate them with rich information. We want to know the things you are accomplishing, the inputs used to achieve them, and the benefits to communities based on the many projects you accomplish. These details help to remind the world of the value we bring.

Vocational Service Rotary RAGS and Fellowships

The ideal of service is at the Core of Rotary and as Rotarians we should consider ourselves fortunate to be linked with a diverse group of some 1.2 million Rotarians and hundreds of thousands of Rotaractors in 134 countries around the world. This brings with it invaluable diversity through our cultural differences, languages, and very importantly our vocations, as well as great strength and the ability/capability to undertake the many challenges and needs within our community. And very importantly the ability to make major life changing connections. 
 
As we reflect on Vocational Service Month we are reminded that the object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and in particular.
Firstly as the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service. The networking potential is astounding as Rotarians have the opportunity to create relationships with many business, professional and community leaders and quite honestly this is one of the reasons why persons are drawn to Rotary.
 
Secondly High Ethical Standards in business and profession; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as  an opportunity to serve society
 
We know that maintaining high Ethical standards is another core value of Rotary. We cannot compromise on this. We have seen overtime in our own communities, in our district and globally that we are able to mobilize resources for small and large projects all because Rotary is known for integrity.  Integrity is strictly linked to our vocation as without that our successes in business and as Rotarians can be marginalized, We must remain vigilant and guard our personal and professional integrity as well as that of Rotary and encourage others to do likewise.
 
The importance of diversity of vocation in our clubs is also significant. Sometime clubs may deviate from this very instructive guiding principle but I encourage you to review your needs from time to time and as this can add value and strengthen our collective ability to effectively carry out your community service and make a difference in our communities. Also, very importantly please reflect on how we are honoring the various vocations of our Fellow Rotarians and Rotaractors, Also this is a good time to reflect on the mentorship programmes in place to help change the course of a young person’s life.

In Celebration of International Peace Day, a team of Rotarians volunteered their time to speak to hundreds of Students along the length of the island about the importance of Peace and their school becoming a recognized Peace Site.  The aim of our club, through this initiative is to "empower our communities to educate for a just and peaceful world."
 
This initiative was first introduced to our club by President Elect Lisa Krupp, of the World Citizen/Peace Sites organization, and as a result of our partnership with World Citizen/Peace Sites, as well as with the One Eleuthera Foundation (OEF), the Deep Creek Middle School became the 1st International Peace Site in the Caribbean last year.  On the eve of International Day of Peace, a presentation was made to hundreds of students around the island of Eleuthera, encouraging schools to become Peace Sites thereby enabling their students to become World Citizens who seek to uphold these 5 Peace Actions:
  • SEEK peace within yourself and others
  • REACH OUT in service
  • PROTECT the environment
  • RESPECT diversity
  • BE a responsible citizen of the world
President Susan Culmer and a team of Executive Board members of our club has recently met with The Ministry of Education Eleuthera Division, under the leadership of Incoming District Superintendent, Michael Culmer, and and we are very excited to join in partnership to make every school on the island a Peace Site.

“It is possible to achieve our goals, but we need decisions, political will and transformational policies to allow us to still live in peace with our own climate"

Greetings to the fellow members of the Rotarians,

As we celebrate the month of the membership and development of the new club in August, I would like to remind you of the importance of membership and our members.
Our Rotary clubs are at the heart of the service of rotary and well-being in the world, and our members, you, our "people of action", are the most important part of our clubs. According to the words of the former President of Rotary International, Estes Snedecor, "the strength of rotary lies in the sincerity of the goal of its members". that's why I want to congratulate the members of our amazing district 7020 for the Meaningful work that you do in your community, in our region and all over the world.
Thanks to the collective work of our members through our clubs, we reach and save lives; we work to improve basic education and literacy; we help economic and community development, we work on prevention and treatment of Diseases, we help peace and prevention and resolution of conflicts; we help to provide drinking water and sanitation, we help to protect the environment lots more... Yes, fellow rotarians with the support of the Rotary International and the rotary fondationdu, thanks to our clubs and you, our members can change their lives.
Given the importance of membership, it is therefore no wonder that our rotary President, Mark Maloney, and many others before him, want us to advance rotary by increasing our strength, improving the retention rate of Our Club and the commitment of our members; and looking for opportunities to develop rotary through the development of new clubs.
In District 7020, the goal is to achieve a minimum net gain of 2 members in clubs with more than 15 members, and for clubs of less than 15 members of the district are encouraged to reach a Minimum of 15 members.
Some of the opportunities for the growth of the workforce are in our former students; some are found in the differences between the combination of businesses and professionals in our communities and those in our clubs; some are present at the rotaractors waiting To be invited to join a rotary club and others are members of the organization.
The growth of the strength through the development of new clubs in areas that are not yet covered by a rotary club, or new clubs with special attention / interest are encouraged. Let's also study the possibility of satellite clubs in areas where it is not easy to reach a complete club, but where there are rotarians who want to do good in the world.

 
RI President's Message - August 2019

During 2019-2020, I am encouraging Rotarians and Rotaractors to grow Rotary.We must grow our service, we must grow the impact of our projects, but, most importantly, we must grow our membership so we can achieve more.

Let us try to approach membership, one that is more organized and strategic.I am asking every club to form an active membership committee of people of different backgrounds who will look methodically at the leadership of the community.

NEW YEAR MESSAGE
 
Every new year brings new aspirations and dreams and the opportunity for new achievements. The same is true for Rotary, and as we begin our new year, I wish to offer heartfelt congratulations to our very own immediate Past Rotary International President Barry Rassin, and his lovely wife Esther for providing the Rotary world with amazing inspirational leadership. They have been shining examples for all of us in the Rotary world. We truly appreciate and thank them for all that they have done and will continue to do. I also wish to commend Immediate Past District Governor Patrick Adizua and his lovely wife Lesline for leading our District to the many successes that we have achieved this past year.
I do believe that our New Rotary Year will be an exciting time for our Rotary World under the leadership of Rotary International President Mark Maloney, and more so in our amazing District 7020, as we work closely together to build on the successes of the past, especially of our Rotary Year 2018-2019, and thus achieve even greater heights.
Of course, much of the work of any District is done at Club level, and so I wish to congratulate our Presidents who have taken on the awesome responsibility of leading our Clubs. I also wish to congratulate the District team which will be a great resource to help steer and to guide our clubs through a period of excitement, a period of outstanding service and a period of growth.
Very importantly, however, although our Presidents have this responsibility, each Rotarian, Rotaractor, Interactor is expected, and is encouraged to help deliver on the successes of this year, through your full participation in those all-important community and international projects that your Club will undertake.
 
Mark Daniel MALONEY
President, Rotary International


Happy Rotary New Year 2019-2020!

Dear fellow Rotarians and members
of the family of Rotary,

I love to travel! I even enjoy the mundane process of getting from here to there. But last year, my wife, Gay, and I had one of those experiences that would strain the optimism of even the most cheerful traveler. We found ourselves with six hours to wait, at an airport where we were not scheduled to be, on a day we had not planned still to be traveling, having woken up that morning at a hotel unknown to us the night before. It was one of those days.

As we waited at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City, Gay and I took a walk to people watch. We went from one end of the terminal to the other and back, looking at every gate, every destination, every group of people waiting for their flights.

Each gate was its own island of humanity. When we walked down the center of the concourse, we were in New York, moving along with everyone in one river. But when you veered off into those seats, you left that current and landed on an island. You were already in Delhi or Paris or Tel Aviv.

 

 

RI President's Message - January 2019

 

Vocational service can be hard to define, but it is easy to describe: It is simply the point where our Rotary lives and our professional lives intersect. When we put our Rotary ideals to work through our work, that is vocational service.

 
  

Fellow Rotarians,

This month is significant for many reasons, because it is the month that we celebrate Family month and also focus on our cause “Disease Prevention & Treatment”.

It also represents a time of great celebration that many will not be able to afford and challenges our belief in giving and generousity.

The late Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of Great Britain once said:

“We make a living by what we get.
We make a life by what we give”

 

RI President's Message - August 2018

A well-known saying goes, "If you want to change the world, go home and love your family." That doesn't mean people should ignore the needs outside their own homes; instead, they should pay attention to the needs within.

It can be tempting, when our priority is service, to focus only on the things that look like service: the projects, the planning, the work that yields a visible benefit to those who need it. But to do that work effectively, we need to keep our own house in order. In Rotary, that means conducting ourselves in accordance with the principles of Rotary, treating others with respect, and following The Four-Way Test. It means maximizing our impact by planning carefully and stewarding our resources wisely. And it means looking after the long-term health of our organization by ensuring that our membership is strong, engaged, and healthy.

Our membership has hovered around the same 1.2 million mark for 20 years. We aren't growing, and our membership is getting older. We have too many clubs that don't have the knowledge or motivation to have an impact: clubs that don't know what we're doing on a global level, clubs that don't know about our programs or our Foundation, that don't even know how to get involved. And with a membership that is still mostly male, we clearly aren't doing enough to become the organization of choice for women who are seeking to serve.

We are a membership organization first. If we want to achieve the goals we've set for ourselves, we need to put membership first. All of us have a responsibility to take membership seriously, not only by inviting prospective members, but also by making sure new members are welcomed into clubs that offer them something of value. If you see someone walk into a meeting and hesitate, be sure that person has a place to sit and is part of the conversation. If you're enthusiastic about a Rotary program, make sure your club knows about it and knows how to get involved. If you see a need in your community, talk about it at this week's meeting. If we want to be part of an organization that's strong, that's active, that's having an impact – start at home, and Be the Inspiration in Rotary.

Barry Rassin
President 2018-19


 

 

Dear 7020 Rotarians,

The Rotaract Club of Eleuthera hosted its first Rotaract Roundtrip where they invited Rotaractors from all over the world to spend 7 days on the island of Eleuthera. This kind of exchange was the first of its kind for the Bahamas as well as Rotary District (7020) at large.
Three lucky Rotaractors, Alexandre, Franziska and Areli were selected from France, Germany and Mexico, respectively, to share in the Eleuthera experience.  On arrival, the Rotaractors were formally welcomed with a reception at Charter President Shaun and President Elect Sandra Ingraham’s home. Great music, food and fellowship were the order of the night. Once the Rotaractors received their island style welcome, the remainder of the week was set
for touring and fun.
While the trip was meant to be touristic, the guest Rotaractors were still given the opportunity to foster the Rotary spirit by participating in a community service project in Tarpum Bay as well as volunteering at The Centre for Training and Innovation by rendering their service in their respective areas of expertise.
Alexandre, Franziska, Areli and host Rotaractors topped off the week with a celebration at Rotarian Julian Carey’s (the king of fellowship) home, where at evening’s end they were gifted with handmade local gifts to take back home to their respective countries.
