Alumni - You will be surprised where you find them.
 
Whether it is with your club's Interact Club, or a Rotaract Club in the  area, or a Scholar that your club identifies with, or a Youth in the Exchange program, it is a great time to reach out and reconnect and rejuvenate the interest in your alumni.  Be sure to have them set up a My Rotary account at www.Rotary.org  and complete the information including the program they were involved with.
First Annual Charter Celebration Party!
 
So how does the new Rotary club go from 0 to 60, well 58, in just three months?  Organic Growth, Planning, Mission and Vision and Buzz, and fun that’s how!!!  The Southfield Area Rotary Club (SARC) charter celebration will be an evening to remember.  We are a fun, diverse, enthusiastic club and a connecting club between Districts 6380 and 6400.  Our celebration is YOUR Celebration. 
I just received an updated concept from Gerry Jackson of one of District 6380's newest clubs, the Rotary Club of Motorcycling Rotarians.
 
This text from Gerry is just a short extract from the updated concept published on the district web site under Download Files as a PDF.

What has already happened:
Earlier this year, we reached out to my district’s 2016‐17 district governor, Michael Angelo Caruso and he agreed to and likes the idea of starting this club via my district. We realize our members will be from all over North America (perhaps even the world). However, each Rotary club has to belong to a district and each provisional club needs a New Club Advisor who is an existing Rotarian knowledgeable in the process ... in this case that would be me. That person’s job is to help the club along to becoming an actual Rotary club and to stay with that for several years into its early existence.
 
 
 
 
A Picnic in the Park on Sunday August 6, gathered a number of Rotarians from around the District, at Shiawassee Park in Farmington.  Alumni was the focus of the conversation, the importance of getting and keeping in touch with the alumni from each and every club in the District. 
 
Rotary International is accumulating and updating records on program alumni from the programs Interact, Rotaract, Youth Exchange, Ambassadorial and Peace Scholars, and Group
Study Exchange.  It is hoped that clubs will scour their files and memories to locate and contact their sponsored alumni. The purpose of course is to reignite their interest in Rotary,
hopefully to become active Rotarian members.
Rotary International President-elect Sam F. Owori died unexpectedly on 13 July due to complications from surgery. Sam was a member of the Rotary Club Kampala, Uganda, for 38 years.
 
Rotary is establishing a memorial fund in Sam's honor and will provide details soon.
 
More information about Sam is available on this RI web page.

Several events and activities of local clubs that may be of interest to other district members have descriptive flyers within the newsletter.

Be a Host Family
 
As a host family for a Rotary exchange student, you assume parental responsibility for this young ambassador from another country, to provide shelter and sustenance, guidance and counsel, and love and support to the child of strangers who may live thousands of miles from you. They have their own insurance and pocket money – you will provide room and board. Rotary does not pay any stipend to host families.
 
Rotary Clubs are always looking for potential host families. If you’d like to enrich your family’s experience by bringing in a Rotary exchange student, contact your local Rotary Club.
