In a statement issued by the World Health Organization, world leaders and individual philanthropists backed the plan by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) by pledging almost three-quarters of the funds up front. The Plan utilizes new knowledge about the polio viruses, new technologies and new tactics to reach the most vulnerable communities. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is funding $1.8 billion - a third of the total cost of the GPEI’s six-year budget. Another $335 million was promised by seven-strong group of other philanthropists, including Tahir Foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies and Carlos Slim Foundation. Multiple government donors - among them Britain, Germany, Norway, Pakistan and Nigeria - also made pledges, bringing the total promised so far for the plan to just over $4 billion. A 2010 analysis found that if polio transmission were to be stopped by 2015, the net benefit from reduced treatment costs and productivity gains would be $40 billion to $50 billion by 2035.

The Santee-Lakeside Rotary Club meets every Thursday at noon at Jimmy’s Restaurant on Mission Gorge Road in Santee. Guests are Welcome!

New Website Vendor ClubRunner! District 5340 is changing their District Web supplier to ClubRunner. The Santee-Lakeside Rotary Club is also changing to ClubRunner in order to take advantage of its many features and to be able to ensure our site integrates with District 5340. Look for changes later this month. ClubRunner is a very robust platform that allows automatic synchronization of data with Rotary International. This is a huge benefit for all Rotarians, and will mean that we are not duplicating entries for membership or attendance information. ClubRunner allows for individual usernames and passwords (which increases security of private data), and will help streamline input and maintenance of individual Club member data. The ClubRunner system helps improve communication through a special email message center, and an improved District Grants module, streamlined event registration, etc. It also offers photo albums, attendance manager and more. Rotarian, Sandy Pugliese has agreed to be our Club’s webmaster and learn this new tool. The November District Conference will feature a workshop on ClubRunner….don’t miss out. Make sure you register!

LLeeaaddeerrsshhiipp A Accaaddeem myy Leadership Development Academy “LDA” Class of 2014 will begin this September. Registration is now open. LDA is an eight-month interactive study course for Rotarians of all ages. Learn the how’s and what’s of Rotary. Classes being on September 10 and run from 6:00 to 8:30 pm with a light dinner provided. To register go to the District web site: demy/index.html


Declaration of Rotarians in Businesses and Professions As a Rotarian engaged in a business or profession, I will: 1.

Exemplify the core value of integrity in all behaviors and activities.


Use my vocational experience and talents to serve Rotary.


Conduct all of my personal, business, and professional affairs ethically, encouraging and fostering high ethical standards as an example to others.


Be fair in all dealings with others and treat them with the respect due to them as fellow human beings.


Promote recognition and respect for 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.


Honor the trust that Rotary and fellow Rotarians provide and not do anything that will bring disfavor or reflect adversely on Rotary or fellow Rotarians.


Not seek from a fellow Rotarian a privilege or advantage not normally accorded others in a business or professional relationship.

President’s Message “We all have special skills, contacts, etc. to enhance our visibility in our own communities.” Jim Peasley, President

For the 2013-2014 Rotary year, I am very humbled and grateful to all the members of the Santee-Lakeside Rotary Club in your confidence in me to be your club president. As you all know I am a relatively new to Rotary and, of course, have a lot to learn. Since I have become a member of the club I have received much help, assistance, and advice and I know that all of the members will support me in our efforts to make the 2013-2014 year at least as great as the past year lead by Augie Caries. As our past president has indicated, our club faced several formidable challenges this last year. These challenges must be addressed this Rotary year by all of us. For our club to grow and become more vibrant, we must bring in new members as I believe is our club’s number one priority. We should also complete a needs assessment of our community to understand how our club can help our local community, which is something that I would like to personally accomplish. We should increase our giving in the Every Rotarian Every Year Program. We will continue to build on our past successes to make our Concert at the Lakes a premier fundraising event so that we can adequately fund our youth and community programs. We must work together and revisit our Strategic Plan to establish achievable goals consistent with the club member’s vision of the future. Working effectively together and committing our resources and time we can make all of this happen. As stated above, I believe that our first priority is to increase membership. The club must develop a Membership Plan, a brief document that provides the foundation for marketing the club to grow membership. The Plan needs to identify prospective members in Lakeside and Santee and outline the benefits of becoming a Rotarian, etc. Continued on page 6

Why Join Rotary

President’s Message


C Coom mm muunniittyy S Seerrvviiccee Rotary creates the perfect venue to give back to your community and to the world at large.

N Neettw woorrkkiinngg Rotary provides an environment for developing strong friendships and business relationships.

LLeeaaddeerrsshhiipp S Skkiillllss Rotary provides unlimited exposure to new topics and ideas; it provides a meaningful way to be a leader.

IInntteerrnnaattiioonnaall S Seerrvviiccee Rotary’s arm encircles the globe. It is the largest service organization in the world and provides countless opportunities to bridge continents and end divides.

FFrriieennddsshhiipp Every Rotary Club in the world, no matter how big or small, has one thing in common: friendship. And it’s from this base of friendship that we serve our community.

Prospective members include community and business leaders and professionals who can develop into outstanding Rotarians. If each member of the club would bring as least one special guest to at least one weekly meeting with the hopes of that guest joining our club, that effort could reap rewards to grow membership. That is just one idea and I am sure that our club has others to increase membership as well. I know that a public relations effort or plan that is implemented will bring enhanced visibility to our club and spark interest of the people in our two communities to join in our efforts to provide service to those in our community that need help. We should use all of the tools, resources, and opportunities available to make our club and its activities very well known throughout Lakeside and Santee communities. We all have special skills, contacts, etc. to enhance our visibility in our own community. In conjunction with or as part of our Membership Plan, the public relations efforts will bring in new members to our club. Community recognition of the Santee-Lakeside Rotary Club is of upmost importance. I look forward to a great year to build on the clubs successes of the past. Remember -- Service Above Self and that Rotary is, in simple terms, a service organization. Let’s all have fun this year and your commitment to our success is very much appreciated.

FFaam miillyy--FFrriieennddllyy Rotary has the potential to be a way of life; a legacy to leave our children and our grandchildren.

YYoouunngg PPeeooppllee A great tool Rotary has is its educational programs. It also can give you exposure to many different areas and help you find what your interests really are.

One member at a time! 6
