Midtown Celebrates Independence Day at RMA Independence Day never fails to bring with it the patriotic fever and the vibrant tricolor flying high in all educationalandgovernmentinstitutions.ThisyearasIndiacelebratesits67thIndependenceDay,Midtownhad organised a special awareness jatha by the students of Rotary Midtown Academy. The day's programme started at 9 a.m. with the hoisting of the National Flag by the chief guest Mr.S.S.Ramesh, lecturer at Shri Ramakrishna Vidhyashala. President RtnBhanuchandran welcomed the gathering, and as a matter of habit,he also took on theroleofMCfortheday.Thestudentsperformedafusiondancetoamedleyofpatrioticsongs.Rtn.Dr.Prahlad introduced the chief guest Mr.S.S.Ramesh, who brought a welcome change in his Independence Day speech. Rather than the usual talk on struggle for independence and how India gained its freedom from the British rule,Mr. Ramesh spoke about the present day scenario and how we can build a nation of our dreams. His simple examples caught the rampant attention of the students and he was successful in conveying his message. Principal Mrs. VanithaBhat proposed the vote of thanks and the students lined up for the Awareness Jatha. Mr. Rameshflaggedofftheprocessionledbythevibrantschoolband. Hundreds of placards depicting slogans on bribe, corruption, child labour, dowry death, inequality and many other social evils were carried by the students. The school van with an audio system followed the procession wherein a student enlightened the public through his slogans which were also echoed by the students in chorus in the procession. Rotarians and Inner wheel members too joined the 1km jatha distributing small tri-color flags to the children who came to watch the procession, wishing a Happy Independence Day. The walkathon stopped at two places where the students performed a small skit creating awareness among the public on social equality. After the band returned to the school campus, president-secretary distributed laddoos,bunandbananastoallthestudents. Rather than just inspiring and enlightening those present in the school campus, Midtown went a step furtheraheadtoalsoenlightenthepubliclivingaroundtheschoolthroughthe“AwarenessJatha”. Kudos,totheorganizingteam. – Ann.Lavanya
  2. 2. Membership development To be an effective, relevant, and vibrant group within a community, a Rotary club needs to continually admit new members and retain current ones.Aclub's ability to serve the community is directly related to the strength and size of its membershipbase.AclubthatstaysactiveencouragesRotarianstoremainconnectedtotheorganization. "EachRotarian:ReachOne,KeepOne"themembershipsloganapprovedbytheRIBoardofDirectors,isareminder that every Rotarian is responsible for inviting new members and keeping clubs active and vibrant. It also stresses that retention is an essential component of a strong club and membership base. To encourage the sponsorship and retention ofnewmembers,certificatesthatcanbeadministeredattheclublevelareavailable. Findingmembers: New members bring important benefits to the club, including an increased capacity to serve the community, future leadership,diversity,andfreshideas,interests,andenergy. The club brochure templates are one way to advertise your club to prospective members.These files can be edited to suit different needs and geographic locations. Once you create your own brochure, you can print it out and keep copies to distribute to prospective members or the general public at club events. Prospective members can fill out and submit the accompanying Club Membership Inquiry Form if they're interested in learning more about your club, including its community service activities. Clubs can use the form to learn more about prospective members and invite them to their weeklymeetings,projects,orevents. When you're approached by a prospective member, it is helpful to have a concise speech ready about Rotary and yourclub'saccomplishments.ReadhowotherRotariansdescribeRotary. To learn more about proposing an individual for membership in your Rotary club or a Rotary club in your area, visit the ProposingaNewMemberpageorconsultHowtoProposeaNewMember. Keepingmembers: Retaining qualified members is as critical to Rotary's long-term health and success as inducting new ones. Current members who are dedicated, active, and motivated support the effective functioning of the club and are likely to attract new Rotarians. Successful retention strategies include educating members and keeping them involved and informed. Whenanewmemberbecomesactiveandconnected,boththeclubandthememberbecomestronger.

Friendship day with Innerwheel Midtown never ceases to spring surprises. Last Wednesday was no exception. The scheduled program was celebration of “Friendship Day” with Innerwheel members followed by first business meeting of the year. By the time Rotarians assembled, the venue was already colourful with the presence of Innerwheel members in large numbers. Gujrathi delicacies dhokla, fafda, kachori&jalebiswereservedwithsmilesandfriendlygestures by Innerwheel members, but not before each Rotarian was tagged with a friendship band. Rotarians enjoyed the delicaciesandsharedsomelightmoments. Once President Rtn.Bhanu was thru with his opening remarks, the Innerwheel members came up with a surprise act, each of them came up with a unique reason for “Need for Money”, the act was replete with humour spreading bursts of laughter among the audience. Few of the punch lines were bouncersastheywereneverexpectedtobesosarcasticonthe hapless husbands. At the end of the act, the moral of the story was revealed – “Funds for Innerwheel projects”. The gates of the KRS dam have been opened and so did the pockets of generous Rotarians. Innerwheel pocketed a cool 72k for their community projects in just 15 minutes. A great act and a great response. The delighted innerwheel members left 'almost' satisfied making wayforthenextproceedings.Rtn.Bhanutookchargeandconductedasuccessfulbusinessmeeting.

Please Attend Next Week The happier we are, the better we serve : By Mary Berge, a Rotary C o o r d i n a t o r a n d member of the Rotary Club of Johnstown, Pennsylvania,USA Did you know that p e o p l e a r e m o r e interested in the “why” than the “how?”.This applies strongly to Rotary membership. It's far less interesting how you became a Rotarian than why you became, and why you remain,aRotarian. I became a Rotarian because of my innate character to give. I am, by nature, altruistic and I believe in doing the right thing (even when no one is looking). In a nut shell, I feel good when I'm helping others. I remain in Rotary because I feel good when I'm helping others. I also remain in Rotary because of the connectedness I feel with my fellowRotarians through service and fellowship. We are engagedineachother'slivesinandoutsideof our Rotary meetings. My fellow Rotarians really care about me and I really care about them. Outside of family, where else does that happen? Rotary has become my extended family and the fact that my family reaches aroundtheworldhasahugeimpactonme! Hosts : Rotarians Completing 10 years in Rotary Practical Innovation ExpiringDrugswithExpiringLabels: Some people, especially elderly, either forget or don't care enough to look at the expiry date of their medications, but some chemicals can lose potency over time and may even become counter productive. Designers Kanupriya Goel and Gautam Goel propose a new design for pill blister packs that will display a message not to take the drugs once enough time passes. The material would consist of two layers, with the top containing the original drug's info label and a bottom layer with ink that slowly seeps into the top. After enough time passes, the warning message will become clear and the patient will immediately know to get a fresh refill.
