RID. 3212 DG AP's MONTHLY LETTER
. . . .
KALYAN'S QUOTES The World will become a peaceful planet and Rotarians will take the first step towards ushering this era. Rotarians should think of bigger projects in Healthcare and Vocational service. Helping others comes from a change which happens inside us and from our hearts. Be kind persons so that you can Reach Within to Embrace Humanity.
But be kind all the time, not just when it suits you.
Be leaders with high standards of personal morality and integrity. Be magnificent supporters to the cause of Polio eradication both in cash and kind.
Shake those "Couch Potatoes" in Rotary out of their slumber and make them wake up to an age that will see Facebook, Twitter and Rotary's own social network.
Rotary is concerned about the welfare of the youth, its New Generation, that is the future of this world. Rotary's educational scholarship which include peace scholarships and vocational service programs enable the young and adult to work together by which they can reach their goals quickly.
Ron D. Burton, RC of Norman, Oklahoma, USA who as 2011 New Orleans convention committee chair rang the ceremonial bell calling the meeting to order will be leading the global Rotarians in 2013 14 from the 18th floor of one Rotary Centre in Evanston, Illionois as RI President. A 17 member 2011 Nominating committee headed by John M. Pinson, USA and included by M.K.Panduranga Setty, India has selected him and in case no challenging candidates, he well become the President Nominee on 1st October 20 11. A Rotarian since 1979, Burton is Vice Chair of the Future Vision committee and a member of the Polio Eradication Advocacy Task force for the USA. An aide to 2006-07 RIP William B. Boyd, his service in RI was as Director, TRF Trustee and Vice Chair, Moderator, RI Assembly and DG Burton was recipient of RI Service above self award, TRF citation for meritonous service, Distinguished Service Award and International service award for a Polio-Free World. Burton and his wife Jetta, are blessed with two children and three grandchildren. An advocate by profession, he was admitted to practice in Oklahoma and before the U.S Supreme Court. He is a member of American Cleveland county and the State of Oklahoma Bar Associations. He retired as President ofthe University ofOklohomaFoundation Inc in 2007. Burton believes that Rotary's promotion of high ethical standards is one of the qualities that sets it apart from other organizations. He believes that we are poised to capitalize on our strengths as we embrace the RI Strategic Plan and the future vision plan. His Vision is to have every Rotarian appreciate what it means to be a Rotarian. The entire Rotary Fraternity of RID 3212 congratulate Burton and Jetta and repose the trust on them that they can make things happen as they wish and dream.
Warm Rotary Greetings toyou all. Roaming around Rotary District 3212 during August, designated for Membership Development, I was happy and proud to observe that the imagination and attainment have been bridged by way of masterly crafted activities, variety of world class services for all needs and simplicity in implementation. The beauty of our membership and work have thus endorsed that Rotarians are the best people promoting peace and harmony in all possible ways. Our growth in our strength and age necessarily provokes us the thought of "inheritance." Highly visible before us are those young and vibrant youngsters with lots of physical strength and mental intelligence. The youth, between childhood and maturity termed as New Generations in Rotary can alone sustain our purposes and visions in future. Hence, in September, designated for New Generations, let us care those youngsters who are aimless, who need guidance and who wander in different directions. We, Rotarians can inspire and ignite them with moral purity, education and discipline that they will live on hope which will succeed them, give peace to earth and further life to Rotary in the coming decades. f'
Yours in Rotary DG.Arumuga

On this occasion RI president Kalyan Banerjee launched a novel scheme to promote fund raising j Rotary Foundation more specifically for contribution towards Bill Gates challenge for Polio Eradication in
The scheme offers specially manufactured ladies & gents wrist watches made by the famous Titan bran( dial of each wrist watches has the logo of Rotary International and signature of RI President Kalyan Ban Thus the wrist watch has become a special souvenir or a collector's item.
P LI tt It\.it
GOOD-BYBPOuo... . Thank You Rotaryl
Rotarians have to donate Rs.3300 for a Gents Watch and Rs3500 for a Ladies Watch to their respective Di This entitles the donor to the special souvenir watch PLUS the District remits an amount equivalent to Ui (considering 1 dollar is INR 45) in the name of the donor as his/her contribution to The Rotary Foundati the purpose of Polio Eradication.
Rotarians can also send Rs.1050 per piece for Gents Watch and Rs.1250 per piece for Ladies Watch. (Min order: 100 watches)
RRFC Vinay and RRFC Yoganand have made this scheme available to all Rotarians and Anns in all the Di in India.
RID 3131 has coordinated with Titan for the requirement of watches from all the Rotary Districts. F Foundation's South Asia office will receive the donations from all District and will give credit to indi Rotarians in the respective Districts (all the contributions so made shall be added 0 the respective Distric Gates challenge account).
It is estimated that about 75 percent ofthe Rotarians have never donated to The Rotary Foundation. ThisS will certainly attract such Rotarians to start their giving through this innovative scheme wherein they hi opportunity to donate US $ 50 to The Rotary Foundation and also be in possession of a souvenir watch Rotary Logo and signature of. RI President Kalyan Banerjee, who happens to be only the third Indian tohe 106 year old organization like Rotary International.
This is a humble appeal to all Rotarian's in our RID 3212 to participate in this scheme and contribute to the cause of polio eradication.
