All Active Rotarians Contributors The Golden Key was adapted in honor of St. Peter, the patron saint of San Pedro, who is believed to be holding the key to heaven. It is also in recognition at the club’s pioneering effort as the first club in San Pedro, to open the portals of Rotary International to female members. RCSPS was the “key” for the active partnership of both genders in working for the achievement of all the Rotary Objectives. The Golden Key accepts comments, suggestion and contributions from all

RI President - RON D. BURTON

July 2013 Dear fellow Rotarians, This is an incredibly exciting time to be a Rotarian. This Rotary year can be one of the greatest years we have yet experienced in Rotary – but it is up to each one of us. We are now writing the last chapter in our fight against polio. While it has been a long, hard journey, we have learned many valuable lessons. We have learned that as a group we can move mountains, we can change people’s lives for the better, and we can honestly make a difference in our world. Perhaps the greatest lesson has been that the more we challenge ourselves, the more we can achieve. We are also embarking on a new chapter in the storied history of our Rotary Foundation. We have the rare privilege of launching an entirely new grant structure we’ve come to know as Future Vision. It gives us the opportunity to challenge ourselves to do the absolute most we can, with all of our resources. Just think how much more we can do with a stronger Foundation, with stronger clubs filled with more Rotarians who are fully engaged in Rotary service. It’s time for us to recognize that the real challenge we face isn’t just bringing new members into Rotary. It’s turning all members into true Rotarians. It’s helping members get engaged in Rotary – helping them realize the potential they have, and how their Rotary service can change lives. We need to make sure that every member is active and contributing, and making a real difference – because when you’re doing meaningful work in Rotary, Rotary is meaningful to you. When we realize what we can achieve in Rotary – when we really engage Rotary – that’s when lives change. We change the lives of the people who need us. That is inevitable. And along the way, our lives are changed as well. That is also inevitable. That’s what our theme is all about in 2013-14: Engage Rotary, Change Lives. It’s time to open our eyes to the potential each of us has through Rotary. Rotary lets us reach higher, do more, and be a part of something larger than ourselves. No matter how much we give to Rotary, we get more in return. And that, too, is inevitable. In 2013-14, let’s turn all of our potential into reality. It’s up to us. We can do it by engaging in Rotary service, by getting involved, by staying inspired, and by remembering every day the gift we have in Rotary. Together, we will Engage Rotary, Change Lives Ron D. Burton President, Rotary International

Fellow Rotarians, July is a month of beginnings. For the neighboring countries in the Northern Hemisphere, July marks the start of summer. Being the 7th month, it’s also the indication of the start of the second half of the year. This month was named after Julius Caesar, a great emperor who had marked a new chapter in Roman history by being one of the most celebrated leaders not only in Rome, but around the world. July is Caesar’s birth month, and coincidentally, mine too. Most importantly, the first of July also signifies the start of a new Rotary Year with the theme: ENGAGE ROTARY, CHANGE LIVES. Rotary Year 2013-2014 was celebrated via the 17th Turn Over and 18th Installation Ceremonies held at Stone Crest, San Vicente, San Pedro, Laguna last June 30, 2013. IPP Rey and Lady Luz Bongao really put out the works for the event. The ceremony was no short of a feast, overflowing with food, drinks, and the Labusca Pitchmaker Band to serenade the guests. We are also very lucky to celebrate with our distinguished guests and friends from different club, to name a few: DG Danny C. Ona-District 3820 , RC Metro Lipa, DDG Jun Mendoza,- RC Cabuyao, AG Mau Restrivera-RC San Pedro and the First Class Presidents of Area 1 Group 1: Mhon Solis - Metro San Pedro, Atty Jhon Alvarez- RC San Pedro, Roger Banzuela - RC San Pedro East (take note all of them no companion). We are very lucky they graced us with their presence which made the night more meaningful. This RY was already off in a good start with kick off project for this year, which is “Brigada Eskwela”. We have continued PP Yolly Montifar’s Legacy project, the “Water for Life”. Thru this project, the students and teachers have safe, drinking water that is readily available in their school. We have also taken up the makeover of the school’s basic facilities, such as the repairing of desks, repainting of classrooms, and general cleaning of the Grade 1 pupil’s classrooms, in coordination with the Homeroom PTA, Faculty of Pacita Complex 1 Elementary School, and our very own Rotaractors. What a great way to start the Rotary Year 2013-2014! More of the plans and programs to be carried out will be discussed in the weekly meetings. I’m very much excited to serve as your First Class President, and I know I will have all the support you gave to all our Past Presidents. As with time, we can but only move forward, and let’s expect greater things for our beloved Rotary Club of San Pedro South. Just as July signifies the start of summer, let’s bring summer in our club and let warmth and brightness in throughout the year. Cheers! Yours in Rotary Service, Pres. Leofelia “Fe” Aquinde

Editor and TRF Chair’s corner It is back to normal after that 19 day tour of Spain and Portugal, back to reality after living in 4-star hotels for so many days, going to places I never imagined I can visit. Even if the tour ended with our group almost stranded in Lisbon, Portugal due to a labor strike, still, that tour will be part of my cherished memories made possible by my being a Rotarian. Now back to Rotary, back to RCSPS. A day after arrival, with me still adjusting to time zone differences, we had our 17th Turn-over and 18th Induction at Stonecrest Clubhouse. Based on feedback, it was a very successful event with our members and guest enjoying the music played by a 4-man band, actively participating, dancing and singing the night away. Although, the event was adjourned a little past nine pm, the festivities lasted up to two hours later. Going to the current Rotary year’s activities, several projects have been lined up and a couple already completed while I was away. This Friday, July 5, 2013, books and school supplies will be distributed to daycare pupils. Come Sunday, July 7, 2013 our Club is invited in the Barangay Awards and Recognition Night, where our Club is expected to be one of the awardees having been an active regular partner of the Barangay in some of its activities. On July 13, 2013, Saturday, an Area1 Group 1 seminar on Membership Recruitment, Development and Retention is scheduled hosted by our Club to be held at the meeting place of our mother Club. The RI mandated District Governor’s visit originally scheduled Aug. 23, 2013 was moved to Aug. 29, 2013 due to conflict of schedule with another Club. It seems some inadvertent mix-up of schedule at the District Administration caused the rescheduling. On TRF matters, our club committed a goal of $2,900. But internally, we hope to set a new Club record surpassing the previous amount of $4,200 during the Rotary year 2007-2008. In terms of per capita, the current record is $140.74 set last Rotary year 2005-2006. To date, we already have on hand the cash equivalent of $1,600 ($1,000 for a Paul Harris Fellow recognition from an honorary member, Ellen Bongabong, $500 from Pres. Fe Aquinde and $100 from PN Lita Grey) so we are short by only $1,300 of our District target. PE Bebot Melgar and PP Resty Ramos have committed $100 each. It is hoped that by November 2013, we should have met our district target, so everybody is encouraged to contribute soonest. Early remittances will also eliminate last minute problems. It should be noted that individual contributions to the District are not remitted right away to RI since every bank remittances involve fees. ROTARY - A worldwide network of inspired individuals who translate their passions into relevant social causes to change lives in communities.

In this phase we have developed several key features that will further help you plan throughout the Rotary year. While the 2012-13 year is coming to a close, club and district leaders can update goals in Rotary Club Central for one year after your term ends. The new features in Rotary Club Central include: - A Global View that shows a summary of the goals and achievements of clubs worldwide. - Age Gender Trends are now available in the Your Club tab. These trends can help your club work on specific membership initiatives. - Import service projects from Rotary Showcase and Rotary Grants to help your club plan for the year. This feature will save you time and prevent duplicate records. - New reports will help you utilize the information stored in Rotary Club Central. - Performance improvements have been made to speed up the site’s loading time Visit the Learning Center in the coming months to download reference guides to help you use this new resource.

RI INFO 111 I also encourage you to watch the Rotary Club Central: What’s in it for you webinar which took place on 12 June. We were joined by Rotarian panelists who shared their experiences with Rotary Club Central and talked about why it is important for clubs to track their goals and progress. At this time, the webinar is only available in English. We will schedule additional webinars based on interest. If you would like to see this webinar in your language, please let us know. I’m also happy to announce that new enhancements have been added to Rotary Showcase. These improvements will make it easier for your club to share its successful projects with the Rotary world. Please contact your CDS representative or the Contact Center with any questions about these online resources. Best regards, John Hewko CC: 2012-13 and 2013-14 RI Board of Directors, Trustees, Rotary Coordinators, Rotary Public Image Coordinators, and Rotary Regional Foundation Coordinators, Strategic Planning Committee, End Polio Now Zone Coordinators, Endowment/ Major Gift Advisers

RI President Ron Burton:

Engage Rotary, Change Lives By RI President Ron Burton

I’m looking forward to the 2013-14 Rotary year and the immense and humbling privilege of serving as your Rotary International president. During my presidential year, I’ll let you know on the Rotary International president’s Facebook page and in blog posts about some of my travels. I hope this will help you experience some of the magic of Rotary. I have to admit, during my first year as a Rotarian, I almost missed the magic of Rotary. I didn’t always care for the food and programs at the weekly club meetings, and I thought I had better ways to spend my time. But then my club president asked me to chair the Rotary Foundation committee. Rotary started changing for me after that. I found that the more engaged I became in Rotary and the work of The Rotary Foundation, the more I saw the magic of Rotary and how it changed lives. That magic may be a little bit different for each one of us, but it’s there for all of us when we really put our hearts into some aspect of Rotary service. For me, my heart is in the Foundation. I feel that every time you donate to the Foundation you’re saying, “It’s my resource, as a Rotarian; and it’s my responsibility.” Your new governors already have joined me in this and led by example, with 100 percent of them donating to the Foundation. I thank them for their commitment to Rotary, which they’ve shown through their donations as well as facing the challenge of inspiring new members to get more involved and learn about the true meaning of Rotary. When we really engage Rotary, that’s when lives change. And, at the end of the day, no matter how many lives you reach out to change, the life that will change the most will be your own. That’s what our theme for 2013-2014 is all about. Engage Rotary, Change Lives.
