Presidential Message Barry Rassin President 2018-19 Rotary Club of East Nassau New Providence, Bahamas

February 2019 In my travels over the past year, I've visited many strong, vibrant clubs and districts that are transforming their communities. When I attend their meetings, I can feel the energy. When I meet their members, I can see they are people of action. And when I look at their communities, I can recognize the impact of their work. I've also visited communities with Rotary clubs that were hardly more than social clubs. It shouldn't ever be that way. Fortunately, there's a simple approach that I believe can help revitalize any club. I'd like to challenge every Rotary club to come up with at least one high-impact service project. Each club already has the potential, the resources, to make it happen. It has the power to change people's lives — completely. It doesn't take millions of dollars. One of the most transformational projects I've been a part of involved providing a Jeep to a group of midwives in Haiti. We had asked the midwives what we could do for them, and they told us they needed a way to reach expectant mothers in a remote part of the country. We supplied a Jeep, painted it pink, and put the Rotary logo on it. Three years later, we went back to see how they were doing. They were excited by the outcomes: They told us that the mortality rate for mothers and infants in that region had dropped by 50 percent. That's what I call transformational service. But Jeeps don't last forever, and after eight years on the road, that vehicle was on its last legs. So we bought a pink Land Cruiser. It's still on the road, allowing the midwives to provide prenatal care to women in that remote region. What makes a project transformational? It doesn't have to involve a lot of money, but it has to reach people and have a major impact in the community. That is the key, and that is where careful planning and thorough research come in. So do your research. Leverage your resources. Seek partnerships that can increase your impact. And then take action. Of course, service is only part of what a strong club must offer. It must also have good speakers, provide leadership development, involve Rotaract and Interact, and bring value to its members and reasons to participate in Rotary events. If your club is transformational and well-organized, everything else will follow. Members will be engaged, and new members will be eager to join you. Fundraising will be easier: People love to give when they see how their money is making a difference and when they know the organization is accountable. Your club will be vibrant, relevant, and alive — and it will Be the Inspiration to those within its ranks as well as to the community it serves.


PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE RY 2018– 2019 To my fellow Rotarians; Our club is a unique community of colleagues and friends sharing important values, mindsets and goals. As you know, we have fantastic activities and all this has been accomplished thanks to the tireless commitment of each and one you.

These important activities must certainly go on, but we must not fixate these here at this point only. We must focus on another aspect that will broaden the range of the club and its activities, but we also must be aware of all possible risks. Together, with all of you, I want to “turn the tables” towards the “inner core” that makes the Rotary Club of Kalookan North so attractive, appealing and inviting. How can we increase the inner cohesion within the club, strengthen the close ties between the members and make our club more attractive? Of course, I have no ready-made recipe. But I want to make a somewhat unusual suggestion: a mental exercise for all of us over the coming years. I encourage and stimulate you think about these questions. If you have answers, comments, ideas or suggestions: please feel free to share it with us all. Until then – stay healthy and continue your valuable work and remain faithful to the Rotary Club of Kalookan North! Sincerely yours, REX ALVIN C. MARTINEZ Very Inspiring President RY 2018 - 2019


Dear Lord, We pray for the bifocals of faith so that we can see the concern of the moment right under our noses, but also see, further on, Your purpose, in working out Your plan, in the world You have made. We pray for the ability to see at close range -- our part, as a group to become solution-partners in the giving of time and effort and money, and we pray also for the ability to see clearly in the distance, those who are in partnership with us. May we look with new vision through these bifocals of faith and then act. Amen. ROTARY PLEDGE I do solemnly promise to help advance the object of Rotary, comply with the Constitution and By-laws of Rotary International and the Rotary Club of Kalookan North ever putting into practice Rotary’s Motto: Service

Above Self

Relationship with United Nations:


During 2019-20, Rotary will host a series of presidential conferences around the world, focusing on Rotary’s relationship with the United Nations and the UN’s sustainable development goals that many Rotary service projects support. More information will be available in July. In 2020, the United Nations will celebrate the 75th anniversary of its charter and its mission of promoting peace. Rotary was one of 42 organizations the United States invited to serve as consultants to its delegation at the 1945 San Francisco conference, which led to the UN’s charter. For decades, Rotary has worked alongside the United Nations to address humanitarian issues around the world. Today, Rotary holds the highest consultative status that the UN offers to nongovernmental organizations. “Rotary shares the United Nations’ enduring commitment to a healthier, more peaceful, and more sustainable world,” Maloney said. “And Rotary offers something no other organization can match: an existing infrastructure that allows people from all over the world to connect in a spirit of service and peace and take meaningful action toward that goal.”

The 4 Way Test

The object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprises and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

Ang Apat na Pamantayan ng Pagsusuri ng Rotaryo

FIRST The development of acquaintance as an opportunity of service;

1. Is it the TRUTH? Iyon ba ang katotohann?

SECOND The ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society;

2. Is it FAIR to all concerned? Iyon ba’y makatarungan sa lahat ng kinauukulan?

THIRD The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s persona, business, and community life; FOURTH The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

Of the things we think, say or do: sa ating Isip, Salita at Gawa

3. Will it BUILD GOODWILL AND BETTER FRIENDSHIP? Iyon ba’y makakagawa ng kabutihang–loob at ng lalong mabuting pakikipagkaibigan? 4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? Iyon ba’y makakabuti sa lahat ng kinauukulan?

Declaration of Rotarians in Businesses and Professions The Declaration of Rotarians in Businesses and Professions was adopted by the Rotary International Council on Legislation in 1989 to provide more specific guidelines for the high ethical standards called for in the Object of Rotary: As a Rotarian engaged in a business or profession, I am expected to: • Consider my vocation to be another opportunity to serve

• • • • •

Be faithful to the letter and to the spirit of the ethical codes of my vocation, to the laws of my country, and to the moral standards of my community Do all in my power to dignify my vocation and to promote the highest ethical standards in my chosen vocation Be fair to my employer, employees, associates, competitors,” customers, the public, and all those with whom I have a business or professional relationship Recognize the honor and respect due to all occupations which are useful to society

Offer my vocational talents: to provide opportunities for young people, to work for the relief of the special needs of others, and to improve the quality of life in my community • Adhere to honesty in my advertising and in all representations to the public concerning my business or profession Neither seek from nor grant to a fellow Rotarian a privilege or advantage not normally accorded others in a business or professional relationship
