District 7210 News & Updates
At Rotary, we have no tolerance for racism. Promoting respect, celebrating diversity, demanding ethical leadership, and working tirelessly to advance peace are central tenets of our work. ... Rotary will do our part to listen, learn and take action to ensure that we continue to contribute to making positive change.
As we enter a new year and begin the second half of the 2020-2021 Rotary year, I would like to wish you and your families good health, peace and prosperity. I hope your clubs are doing as good as possible during these difficult times. We certainly have a lot going on in D7210!
 
Let me start by welcoming the members of our newest club in the District- the Passport Club which will have their first meeting on February 6th. Many thanks for the leadership of President Samantha Alvarenga and District Governor Nominee Larry Palant for their persistence and determination in launching our first club since September 2018, when we chartered the Southeast Club.
 
The Million Mask Challenge Tour- Take 2 was a huge success as 37 out of our 56 clubs picked up 173,000 surgical, childrens and KN95 masks on January 14th at the Renegades Stadium in Dutchess County. Many thanks to Region 5 AG and Public Image Chair Jacob Lerner, Greater Newburgh Rotary President Andrew Ciccone, Region 4 AG Vicki Kessler and Region 7 AG and District Secretary Carrie Hernandez for their hard work organizing that event in about 2 weeks! I would like all clubs who are distributing the masks in their community to have a community event if you can, and track who you are giving the masks to, and PLEASE take photos/videos and post them on your FB page and website and forward them to Carrie Hernandez for the District FB and website.

Did you know about the wonderful opportunity of Rotary World Peace Fellowships? We need your help in recruiting qualified candidates and spreading the word through your clubs and communities! Please mention to your membership that this opportunity exists and ask them to share this concept with their contacts. I am sure that we can find good, qualified candidates if all Rotarians spread the word about this unique and meaningful Fellowship opportunity. 

The Fellowship is provided to individuals to attend one of the seven Rotary Peace Centers for International Studies in Peace and Conflict resolution around the world. All expenses related to the Fellowship are paid for by Rotary. 

Rotary International has encouraged its clubs worldwide to focus on outreach programs that extend growth through education and various supports. The four District 7210 “Grow Rotary “Committees (Membership, Public Image, Foundation, and Think Differently) are designed to assist our Rotaries to realize growth into a sustainable future of “Service Above Self.”
