“You do what you can for as long as you can, and when you finally can't, you do the next best thing. You back up but you don't give up.” -- Chuck Yeager Just for Laughs A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a Harley motorcycle when he spotted a wellknown heart surgeon in his shop. The surgeon was there, waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his bike. The mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey, Doc, can I ask you a question?" The surgeon a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, fix 'em, put 'em back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same work?"
What if we could prevent just ONE child from suffering from POLIO? How much would that be worth? Click below and contact Dennis or José to learn more. http://www.rotary.org/en/ServiceAnd Fellowship/Polio/HelpEradicatePolio/P ages/ridefault.aspx
The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over, and whispered to the mechanic... "Try doing it with the engine running."

Rotary UN Day – 6 November 2010 Rotary International News -- 13 July 2010 The annual Rotary-UN Day will be held on Saturday, 6 November, at United Nations headquarters in New York City. Under the theme "Rotary and the UN: Building Communities, Bridging Continents," the daylong meeting will bring together key leaders from the United Nations, Rotary International, and other organizations to discuss humanitarian issues and opportunities for collaboration. Organized by the RI representatives to the UN, this year’s event will feature presentations from senior UN staff and Rotary leaders as well as panel discussions on health, water, literacy, and youth. High school-age students, including Interactors and Rotary Youth Exchange participants, can attend a special youth program in the morning and join the adult program in the afternoon. Rotary-UN Day 2009 attracted more than 1,600 attendees from 46 countries. Because of reduced meeting space this year, early registration is encouraged. Read more. To register, submit the appropriate form and payment. Adult registration form Youth/student registration form For further information, contact Brad Jenkins, RI representative to the UN in New York. Rotary and the United Nations Rotary and the United Nations have a long history of working together and sharing similar visions for a more peaceful world. In 1942, Rotary clubs from 21 nations organized a conference in London to develop a vision for advancing education, science, and culture after World War II. That event was a precursor to UNESCO. In 1945, 49 Rotarians went to San Francisco to help draft the UN Charter. Rotary and the UN have been close partners ever since, a relationship that’s apparent through PolioPlus and work with UN agencies. Rotary currently holds the highest consultative status offered to a nongovernmental organization by the UN’s Economic and Social Council, which oversees many specialized UN agencies. Rotary maintains and furthers its relationship with a number of UN bodies, programs, commissions, and agencies through its representative network. This network consists of RI representatives to the United Nations and other organizations.
