JOKES 6
I
t is with great joy that I join the Rotaract
(Rotary) Family in ushering in the year 2007-
2008 with the theme ROTARY SHARES .
Of course this theme has nothing to do with
the listing of Rotary on any of the stock
exchanges of the world but rather a call to
share ideas and resources to grow Club
membership and effectiveness in projects.
Special emphasis has been set on Net Membership
increase and I take this opportunity to share that that our
Rotaract Clubs goals is to have a net membership increase
of one new member every half year. This should be
indicative in all Rotaract functions like ROTS, RYLA, and
District Conference etc where each Club will be required
to have atleast one additional member in attendance.
As Rotaractors, we have benefited from the mentorship
of our Rotarians and it is important that we share the
fruitage by reaching out to Interactors who are the largest
buffer opportunity for Rotaract membership. I request you
to not only identify Interact Clubs that you can mentor but
also support your Rotary (Mother) Clubs in forming Interact
clubs. As Rotaract Clubs, you are then requested to
engage in 3 activities with the Interact Clubs from the
available avenues of service.
Your ADRRs will be your key contact people and your
guides in achieving the Rotaract District Goals. Your
Country Coordinators are also available to you with similar
expertise and authority the ADRRs and are literally your
nearest point of contact as far as the year s goals are
concerned.
Financial Accountability at Club level is a core pillar in
the execution of the Club s Work-plan. Start by paying
your District dues $50 (US) by 31st July to the Country
Fund account, obtain a deposit slip then communicate
(Scan and email) the details to the Rotaract District
Treasurer and /or ADRRs for a receipt. The Rotaract
District Treasurer has developed a basic financial reporting
template for use by Club treasurers where no other
financial report is in use.
Watch out for the monthly Bulletin, which offers R.I and
district information relevant to this year s activities.
Requests will be sent out for articles and this will be the
opportunity to share best
practices and enhance on-
line fellowship.
Training sessions are
also being planned
including 2 ROTS
sessions and 1 RYLA per
country. In addition to the
avenues of service
training, P.R, Finance and
Administration are some
suggested components of
the training curriculum.
Finally, lets start planning and saving for the 20th
Rotaract
District Conference in Dar-es-Salaam, 14th
-18th
May 2008
at Bahari Beach Hotel. You will agree with me that after
the year s hard work, partying at the white beaches and
swimming in the warm coastal waters comes as the best
vacation ever.
Between now and then, lets do what we do best: Share
Rotary in our Professions, in our Clubs and in service to
society.

By Jingo Allan, IP DRR
Saturday 26th May was an historic occasion for
Rotaract in D9200.
After more than 3 years of grooming, we at long last
have an RI recognized club in Northern Uganda. We
all know what Northern Uganda has gone through for
over one decade yet Rotary has been alive here.
It all started with the charter of Rotary club of Gulu in
1985 and it was not until the mid 1990s and early
2000s that the Rotary clubs of Arua, Nebbi and Lira
were formed. The Rotaract club of Lira UTC
(sponsored by Rotary Club of Gulu)was formed 3 years
ago by Rtr Ocaya Besse while a student there. It has
remained provisional since, although it is now
sponsored by the newly formed Rotary Club of Lira.
Ocaya upon graduating went on to form the Rotaract
Club of Gulu community which has been provisional
for 2 years and I am now reliably informed that it shall
have its charter within the next 3 months!
The provisional Rotaract club of Arua (sponsored by
RC Arua) was formed later. I had the opportunity of
visiting them last Rotary year and are they active! The
status of their application to RI is presently not known.
The Rotaract Club of Gulu University was formed
barely one year ago through the efforts of Rtr Kasirye
Henry who spearheaded the formation of the club.
Gulu University club is within the equally young Gulu
university, which has a student population of about
3000. Its success can also be attributed to the efforts
of Rotarians in Rotary Club of Gulu. The Dean of
Students is also the sitting president of the Rotary Club
of Gulu; the University Secretary is from Rotary Club
of Kyambogo and several lecturers are also Rotarians!
The Rotaract Club of Gulu already has several
activities such as the cultural gala and tree planting
projects where it has partnered with other student
based organisations.
We had a great ceremony in which we witnessed
Rtr Henry recieve club regalia for the first time. His
reign however was short lived as within the hour he
handed over to Rtr Charles Lubega.
I thank the folowing rotaractors who escorted me to
this historic occasion:
Emmanuel Njuki, Kampala
Sylvia Kitibwa, Bugolobi
Edith Batenga, Butabika
Robert, President of Buganda Royal Institute
Nicholas Kanabahita, President of Kampala
International University
Thanks to Rotary, there is so much more lie in
Northern Uganda than war. There is life!
Vive le Rotary!

1.Promote club and district activities which address important community issues
More than just enhancing Rotaract’s image, public relations can help gain support for projects, attract members,
and improve the quality of service that you provide. The following are some tips on how to effectively promote
Rotaract in the media:
§ Appoint club and district PR chairpersons
§ Know the media in your area
§ Offer knowledgeable spokespeople
§ Identify Newsworthy Story Angles
2.Develop a Rotaract web site and encourage community organizations to link to it
Keep pace with the times, and the Internet is a powerful tool for sharing club and district activities.
§ Develop your own club or district web page.
§ Encourage community groups to send their visitors to your site for additional information on certain local
issues and programs.
3. Solicit third party endorsements of Rotaract projects
Share the work of Rotaract. An organization with which you partner is an excellent source for a third party
endorsement. Ask them to talk up Rotaract at events, in organizational publications and through the media.
4. Ask the beneficiaries of Rotaract service to speak on behalf of the club or district
No comment is more powerful than one made by a person or a family that has benefited from Rotaract’s work.
People watching the television report or reading the newspaper report will be much more moved by their testimony.
5. Publicize member participation in club and district activities in business and trade periodicals
Rotaractors spend a lot of time volunteering in their communities. Have their work recognized among their
professional peers by sending a press release to various industry publications.
6. Arrange for Rotaract displays in local libraries, banks, city halls, etc.
Many organizations will permit community groups to put up displays in their buildings. Order materials from the RI
catalog and set up an educational display in heavily trafficked places.
7.Produce a video of club and district activity
Many Rotaract clubs have members who have the equipment and knowledge necessary to produce a video, and
editing can often be donated. A compelling video depicting hands-on activities is a good way of telling the Rotaract
story. The video could be used as part of a display and it could be sent to interested members of the media and
organizations. A shorter version could be submitted for consideration as a public service announcement. The tape
could also be used for district conferences and other Rotaract events.
8.Promote Rotaract’s work with and for young people
The media is interested in programs relating to young people. They are particularly interested in projects being
carried out by young people such as Interact activities and the Ambassadorial Scholarship program. Promoting the
work of young people to the media is a good way of updating the image of Rotaract.
9.Seek opportunities for Rotarians to speak at community events and in
schools
Visibility is an important prerequisite to membership recruitment. Be aggressive
in identifying opportunities for members of Rotaract to speak at community
events. Be proactive! Don’t wait to be invited.
10. Speak to the local press club
Every major city has a local press organization. Learn about yours and call them
to see if it might be possible to come and speak at an upcoming meeting. Tell
them you’d like to talk about Rotaract’s role in important community issues such
as drug abuse prevention, tutoring, antiviolence initiatives, and preventive
recreational programs designed to provide structured activities in which children
can be productive and have fun.

By Jingo Allan, IP DRR
25 years ago, the 3rd African Rotaract Club after others in
South Africa and Egypt was chartered in Mombasa, Kenya.
Under the guidance of Rtn Pres Mohamed Abdulla, later a
District Governor, Rotaract stabilized by expanding to
Nairobi, then Kampala in 1984, Dar es salaam in 2000 and
by early 2003 had reached Addis Ababa. Presently D9200
is the third largest Rotaract district in Africa after two others
in Nigeria.
I commenced RY 2006/7 with a plan that focused on 4
core challenges faced by each club – Visibility, Capacity
enhancement, Relevance to the community and Rotaract
extension. The progress made follows.
Present Rotaract Distribution:
In over a quarter Century of service, Rotaract has
grown from 1 to 91 known registrations with a current
distribution as 7 in Ethiopia, 29 in Kenya, 4 in Tanzania
and 51 in Uganda.
An analysis of Rotaract presence across D9200 has to
be viewed from several perspectives: status and
location, provisional and proposed clubs.
Eritrea does not have any Rotaract club on account of
lack of Rotary recognition by the Government. Ethiopia
has 7 clubs all based in Addis Ababa, all 5 recognized
clubs are active and 2 are provisional; Alegneta and
Soliyana. Kenya has 29 clubs, mainly aligned along the
Kisumu – Nairobi - Mombasa highway. 5 clubs in Eastern
and Coast regions collapsed, 20 are known to be active
and all 4 provisional clubs are in the Eastern region
around Kisumu. Tanzania represents the greatest
growth opportunity for the district with a total of 4 clubs. 3
are chartered and 1 provisional (Rotaract club of Hekima
– Dodoma). Uganda has often amazed many for a
country of its size; it has a total of 51 clubs, with 32 and
12 clubs are active chartered and provisional clubs
respectively; 4 chartered and 3 provisional clubs are
believed to have collapsed. The majority are located in
the east, central and southern region of the country.
I believe we have an effective number of 79 clubs out of
91 on paper with a total of 7 new clubs having been
chartered this year and 6 being very weak. At the end of
July, we had a total of 5 proposed Rotaract clubs across
the District
District Administration:
Over the last 4 years, the DRR committee structure has
changed in size and functionality each year in an attempt
to ensure efficient coordination of the clubs. The
performance of my team was some what average, but
this goes on to show that there are several gaps that
need filling right from the top. This year’s structure
introduced country level officers serving under the ADRR
in charge of training, Rotaract extension, partnerships

and publicity. Good results were registered in each
country. Great effort was also made to streamline the
operations of the committee by collaborating with the
DG team leading to major resolutions being passed at
the 19th District conference and assembly in respect to
finances, communication and training.
Performance of Clubs:
Rotaract Clubs focus their activities on 3 core areas;
professional and leadership development and service
projects. The Rotaract program has come along way
since 1972 in its transformation of youth. In RY 2006/7,
effort was made at enabling clubs realize the need for a
balanced program that deals with their public
environment, observes and maintain the six goals of
Rotaract.
Great effort was made at training clubs, making
available Rotaract information through email, websites
and verbal communication. The progress made though
limited to more than half the clubs across D9200, makes
us hopeful that through greater use of administrative
tools, the Rotaract program shall be seen as a value
addition component to society youth.
All clubs in the District have a fairly balanced program
for the core activities; however, many are also beset by
internal conflict, membership turnover, poor image and
varying participation by club officials. In RY 2006/7, we
had a total of 11 ROTS, 3 RYLAs and many more
internal trainings conducted by clubs. There is a still
hope, however, that the effectiveness of Rotaract clubs
shall improve over time.
Future of Rotaract:
Within the next rotary year, we hope for at least 5 new
clubs formed across the district, but even then we do
hope that at least half of the 45 rotary clubs not yet
sponsoring a Rotaract club shall do so. Internally we
hope to see clubs re-invent themselves and have stable
approaches to recruitment and especially retention of
membership.
It is also hoped that each Rotaract club shall steer
greater efforts towards Interact clubs. At District level, I
foresee a broadening of the DRR structure to a level
where ADRRs shall be responsible for smaller numbers
of clubs, much like the present system of Assistant
Governors. This shall be the most effective means of
coordinating clubs in the district.
Every beginning has an end. I was given the
responsibility to steer D9200 Rotaract clubs for RY
2006/7, a task I handled with great heart, brawn and
smartness.
I thank and appreciate all Rotaractors and Rotarians
for having expressed themselves with the year’s theme,
“LEAD THE WAY”

Two hunters are out in the woods
when one of them collapses. He doesn t
seem to be breathing and his eyes are
glazed. The other pulls out his phone
and calls emergency services.
He gasps to the operater: My friend
is dead! What can I do?
The operator in a calm, soothing
voices replies: Take it easy. I can help.
First, let s make sure he s dead.
There is a silence, then a shot is
heard.
Back on the phone, the hunter says,
Ok, now what? - Reuters.
A priest was being honored at his retirement dinner after 25 years in the
Parish.Aleading Senator and member of the congregation was chosen to make
the presentation and give a little speech at the dinner. He was delayed, so the
priest decided to say his own few words while they waited.
I got my first impression of the parish from the first confession
I heard here. I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place.
The very first person who entered my confessional told me he
had stolen a television set and, when questioned by the police,
was able to lie his way out of it. He had stolen money from his
parents, embezzled from his employer, had and affair with his boss s wife; taken
illegal drugs, and gave VD to his sister.
I was appalled. But as the days went on I knew that my people were not all
like that and I had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of good and loving
people. .....
Just as the priest finished his talk, the republican senator arrived full of
apologies at being late. He immediately began to make the presentation and
gave his talk. I ll never forget the first day our parish priest arrived, said the
politician. In fact, I had the honor of being the first person to go to him for
confession.
Moral: NEVER, NEVER, NEVER BE LATE!

A blonde and a redhead met in a bar after work for a drink,
and were watching the 6:00 news. A man was shown
threatening to jump from the Brooklyn Bridge.
The blonde bet the redhead $50 that he wouldn t jump, and
the redhead replied, I ll take that bet!
Sure enough, he jumped, so the blonde gave the redhead
the $50 she owed.
The redhead said, I can t take this, you re my friend.
The blonde replied, No. A bet s a bet.
So the redhead said, Listen, I have to admit, I saw this on
the 5:00 news, so I can t take your money.
The blonde replied, Well, so did I, but I never thought he d
jump again!
A surgical patient was given the usual
postoperative instructions. That night she called,
wanting to know if her mother could visit. Any time,
the doctor replied. Why do you ask?
It says here in your instructions, no relations until
after your post-op checkup.
Since spaghetti is now pasta and a TV

  • 1. 1 DRR COLUMN 1 VIVE LE ROTARY! 2 INTRODUCING THE DISTRICT COMMITTEE 2007/08... 4 A Bulletin of the Rotaract District D9200 Newsletter ISSUE 1 JULY 2007 MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT: 10 TIPS 3 JOKES 6 I t is with great joy that I join the Rotaract (Rotary) Family in ushering in the year 2007- 2008 with the theme ROTARY SHARES . Of course this theme has nothing to do with the listing of Rotary on any of the stock exchanges of the world but rather a call to share ideas and resources to grow Club membership and effectiveness in projects. Special emphasis has been set on Net Membership increase and I take this opportunity to share that that our Rotaract Clubs goals is to have a net membership increase of one new member every half year. This should be indicative in all Rotaract functions like ROTS, RYLA, and District Conference etc where each Club will be required to have atleast one additional member in attendance. As Rotaractors, we have benefited from the mentorship of our Rotarians and it is important that we share the fruitage by reaching out to Interactors who are the largest buffer opportunity for Rotaract membership. I request you to not only identify Interact Clubs that you can mentor but also support your Rotary (Mother) Clubs in forming Interact clubs. As Rotaract Clubs, you are then requested to engage in 3 activities with the Interact Clubs from the available avenues of service. Your ADRRs will be your key contact people and your guides in achieving the Rotaract District Goals. Your Country Coordinators are also available to you with similar expertise and authority the ADRRs and are literally your nearest point of contact as far as the year s goals are concerned. Financial Accountability at Club level is a core pillar in the execution of the Club s Work-plan. Start by paying your District dues $50 (US) by 31st July to the Country Fund account, obtain a deposit slip then communicate (Scan and email) the details to the Rotaract District Treasurer and /or ADRRs for a receipt. The Rotaract District Treasurer has developed a basic financial reporting template for use by Club treasurers where no other financial report is in use. Watch out for the monthly Bulletin, which offers R.I and district information relevant to this year s activities. Requests will be sent out for articles and this will be the opportunity to share best practices and enhance on- line fellowship. Training sessions are also being planned including 2 ROTS sessions and 1 RYLA per country. In addition to the avenues of service training, P.R, Finance and Administration are some suggested components of the training curriculum. Finally, lets start planning and saving for the 20th Rotaract District Conference in Dar-es-Salaam, 14th -18th May 2008 at Bahari Beach Hotel. You will agree with me that after the year s hard work, partying at the white beaches and swimming in the warm coastal waters comes as the best vacation ever. Between now and then, lets do what we do best: Share Rotary in our Professions, in our Clubs and in service to society. Lawi Sultan ROTARY YEAR 2006/07 AT A GLANCE 5

As Rotarians, we demonstrate that love, and we share that love, through helping each other.” — RI President-elect Wilfrid J. Wilkinson, addressing the 2007 International Assembly By the NumbersBy the NumbersBy the NumbersBy the NumbersBy the Numbers By Jingo Allan, IP DRR Saturday 26th May was an historic occasion for Rotaract in D9200. After more than 3 years of grooming, we at long last have an RI recognized club in Northern Uganda. We all know what Northern Uganda has gone through for over one decade yet Rotary has been alive here. It all started with the charter of Rotary club of Gulu in 1985 and it was not until the mid 1990s and early 2000s that the Rotary clubs of Arua, Nebbi and Lira were formed. The Rotaract club of Lira UTC (sponsored by Rotary Club of Gulu)was formed 3 years ago by Rtr Ocaya Besse while a student there. It has remained provisional since, although it is now sponsored by the newly formed Rotary Club of Lira. Ocaya upon graduating went on to form the Rotaract Club of Gulu community which has been provisional for 2 years and I am now reliably informed that it shall have its charter within the next 3 months! The provisional Rotaract club of Arua (sponsored by RC Arua) was formed later. I had the opportunity of visiting them last Rotary year and are they active! The status of their application to RI is presently not known. The Rotaract Club of Gulu University was formed barely one year ago through the efforts of Rtr Kasirye Henry who spearheaded the formation of the club. Gulu University club is within the equally young Gulu university, which has a student population of about 3000. Its success can also be attributed to the efforts of Rotarians in Rotary Club of Gulu. The Dean of Students is also the sitting president of the Rotary Club of Gulu; the University Secretary is from Rotary Club of Kyambogo and several lecturers are also Rotarians! The Rotaract Club of Gulu already has several activities such as the cultural gala and tree planting projects where it has partnered with other student based organisations. We had a great ceremony in which we witnessed Rtr Henry recieve club regalia for the first time. His reign however was short lived as within the hour he handed over to Rtr Charles Lubega. I thank the folowing rotaractors who escorted me to this historic occasion: Emmanuel Njuki, Kampala Sylvia Kitibwa, Bugolobi Edith Batenga, Butabika Robert, President of Buganda Royal Institute Nicholas Kanabahita, President of Kampala International University Thanks to Rotary, there is so much more lie in Northern Uganda than war. There is life! Vive le Rotary! Vive le Rotary!
  • 3. 3 1.Promote club and district activities which address important community issues More than just enhancing Rotaract’s image, public relations can help gain support for projects, attract members, and improve the quality of service that you provide. The following are some tips on how to effectively promote Rotaract in the media: § Appoint club and district PR chairpersons § Know the media in your area § Offer knowledgeable spokespeople § Identify Newsworthy Story Angles 2.Develop a Rotaract web site and encourage community organizations to link to it Keep pace with the times, and the Internet is a powerful tool for sharing club and district activities. § Develop your own club or district web page. § Encourage community groups to send their visitors to your site for additional information on certain local issues and programs. 3. Solicit third party endorsements of Rotaract projects Share the work of Rotaract. An organization with which you partner is an excellent source for a third party endorsement. Ask them to talk up Rotaract at events, in organizational publications and through the media. 4. Ask the beneficiaries of Rotaract service to speak on behalf of the club or district No comment is more powerful than one made by a person or a family that has benefited from Rotaract’s work. People watching the television report or reading the newspaper report will be much more moved by their testimony. 5. Publicize member participation in club and district activities in business and trade periodicals Rotaractors spend a lot of time volunteering in their communities. Have their work recognized among their professional peers by sending a press release to various industry publications. 6. Arrange for Rotaract displays in local libraries, banks, city halls, etc. Many organizations will permit community groups to put up displays in their buildings. Order materials from the RI catalog and set up an educational display in heavily trafficked places. 7.Produce a video of club and district activity Many Rotaract clubs have members who have the equipment and knowledge necessary to produce a video, and editing can often be donated. A compelling video depicting hands-on activities is a good way of telling the Rotaract story. The video could be used as part of a display and it could be sent to interested members of the media and organizations. A shorter version could be submitted for consideration as a public service announcement. The tape could also be used for district conferences and other Rotaract events. 8.Promote Rotaract’s work with and for young people The media is interested in programs relating to young people. They are particularly interested in projects being carried out by young people such as Interact activities and the Ambassadorial Scholarship program. Promoting the work of young people to the media is a good way of updating the image of Rotaract. 9.Seek opportunities for Rotarians to speak at community events and in schools Visibility is an important prerequisite to membership recruitment. Be aggressive in identifying opportunities for members of Rotaract to speak at community events. Be proactive! Don’t wait to be invited. 10. Speak to the local press club Every major city has a local press organization. Learn about yours and call them to see if it might be possible to come and speak at an upcoming meeting. Tell them you’d like to talk about Rotaract’s role in important community issues such as drug abuse prevention, tutoring, antiviolence initiatives, and preventive recreational programs designed to provide structured activities in which children can be productive and have fun.

  • 5. 5 By Jingo Allan, IP DRR 25 years ago, the 3rd African Rotaract Club after others in South Africa and Egypt was chartered in Mombasa, Kenya. Under the guidance of Rtn Pres Mohamed Abdulla, later a District Governor, Rotaract stabilized by expanding to Nairobi, then Kampala in 1984, Dar es salaam in 2000 and by early 2003 had reached Addis Ababa. Presently D9200 is the third largest Rotaract district in Africa after two others in Nigeria. I commenced RY 2006/7 with a plan that focused on 4 core challenges faced by each club – Visibility, Capacity enhancement, Relevance to the community and Rotaract extension. The progress made follows. Present Rotaract Distribution: In over a quarter Century of service, Rotaract has grown from 1 to 91 known registrations with a current distribution as 7 in Ethiopia, 29 in Kenya, 4 in Tanzania and 51 in Uganda. An analysis of Rotaract presence across D9200 has to be viewed from several perspectives: status and location, provisional and proposed clubs. Eritrea does not have any Rotaract club on account of lack of Rotary recognition by the Government. Ethiopia has 7 clubs all based in Addis Ababa, all 5 recognized clubs are active and 2 are provisional; Alegneta and Soliyana. Kenya has 29 clubs, mainly aligned along the Kisumu – Nairobi - Mombasa highway. 5 clubs in Eastern and Coast regions collapsed, 20 are known to be active and all 4 provisional clubs are in the Eastern region around Kisumu. Tanzania represents the greatest growth opportunity for the district with a total of 4 clubs. 3 are chartered and 1 provisional (Rotaract club of Hekima – Dodoma). Uganda has often amazed many for a country of its size; it has a total of 51 clubs, with 32 and 12 clubs are active chartered and provisional clubs respectively; 4 chartered and 3 provisional clubs are believed to have collapsed. The majority are located in the east, central and southern region of the country. I believe we have an effective number of 79 clubs out of 91 on paper with a total of 7 new clubs having been chartered this year and 6 being very weak. At the end of July, we had a total of 5 proposed Rotaract clubs across the District District Administration: Over the last 4 years, the DRR committee structure has changed in size and functionality each year in an attempt to ensure efficient coordination of the clubs. The performance of my team was some what average, but this goes on to show that there are several gaps that need filling right from the top. This year’s structure introduced country level officers serving under the ADRR in charge of training, Rotaract extension, partnerships Rotary year 2006/7 at a glanceRotary year 2006/7 at a glanceRotary year 2006/7 at a glanceRotary year 2006/7 at a glanceRotary year 2006/7 at a glance and publicity. Good results were registered in each country. Great effort was also made to streamline the operations of the committee by collaborating with the DG team leading to major resolutions being passed at the 19th District conference and assembly in respect to finances, communication and training. Performance of Clubs: Rotaract Clubs focus their activities on 3 core areas; professional and leadership development and service projects. The Rotaract program has come along way since 1972 in its transformation of youth. In RY 2006/7, effort was made at enabling clubs realize the need for a balanced program that deals with their public environment, observes and maintain the six goals of Rotaract. Great effort was made at training clubs, making available Rotaract information through email, websites and verbal communication. The progress made though limited to more than half the clubs across D9200, makes us hopeful that through greater use of administrative tools, the Rotaract program shall be seen as a value addition component to society youth. All clubs in the District have a fairly balanced program for the core activities; however, many are also beset by internal conflict, membership turnover, poor image and varying participation by club officials. In RY 2006/7, we had a total of 11 ROTS, 3 RYLAs and many more internal trainings conducted by clubs. There is a still hope, however, that the effectiveness of Rotaract clubs shall improve over time. Future of Rotaract: Within the next rotary year, we hope for at least 5 new clubs formed across the district, but even then we do hope that at least half of the 45 rotary clubs not yet sponsoring a Rotaract club shall do so. Internally we hope to see clubs re-invent themselves and have stable approaches to recruitment and especially retention of membership. It is also hoped that each Rotaract club shall steer greater efforts towards Interact clubs. At District level, I foresee a broadening of the DRR structure to a level where ADRRs shall be responsible for smaller numbers of clubs, much like the present system of Assistant Governors. This shall be the most effective means of coordinating clubs in the district. Every beginning has an end. I was given the responsibility to steer D9200 Rotaract clubs for RY 2006/7, a task I handled with great heart, brawn and smartness. I thank and appreciate all Rotaractors and Rotarians for having expressed themselves with the year’s theme, “LEAD THE WAY”
  • 6. 6 Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn t seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other pulls out his phone and calls emergency services. He gasps to the operater: My friend is dead! What can I do? The operator in a calm, soothing voices replies: Take it easy. I can help. First, let s make sure he s dead. There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the hunter says, Ok, now what? - Reuters. A priest was being honored at his retirement dinner after 25 years in the Parish.Aleading Senator and member of the congregation was chosen to make the presentation and give a little speech at the dinner. He was delayed, so the priest decided to say his own few words while they waited. I got my first impression of the parish from the first confession I heard here. I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place. The very first person who entered my confessional told me he had stolen a television set and, when questioned by the police, was able to lie his way out of it. He had stolen money from his parents, embezzled from his employer, had and affair with his boss s wife; taken illegal drugs, and gave VD to his sister. I was appalled. But as the days went on I knew that my people were not all like that and I had, indeed, come to a fine parish full of good and loving people. ..... Just as the priest finished his talk, the republican senator arrived full of apologies at being late. He immediately began to make the presentation and gave his talk. I ll never forget the first day our parish priest arrived, said the politician. In fact, I had the honor of being the first person to go to him for confession. Moral: NEVER, NEVER, NEVER BE LATE! J O K E S !!! A blonde and a redhead met in a bar after work for a drink, and were watching the 6:00 news. A man was shown threatening to jump from the Brooklyn Bridge. The blonde bet the redhead $50 that he wouldn t jump, and the redhead replied, I ll take that bet! Sure enough, he jumped, so the blonde gave the redhead the $50 she owed. The redhead said, I can t take this, you re my friend. The blonde replied, No. A bet s a bet. So the redhead said, Listen, I have to admit, I saw this on the 5:00 news, so I can t take your money. The blonde replied, Well, so did I, but I never thought he d jump again! A surgical patient was given the usual postoperative instructions. That night she called, wanting to know if her mother could visit. Any time, the doctor replied. Why do you ask? It says here in your instructions, no relations until after your post-op checkup. Since spaghetti is now pasta and a TV set is a home entertainment system, the manager of my grocery store did his best to jazz up the lowly egg. He still has some work to do.
