Dynamic young club uses social media to grow
Erin Mills had just finished teaching for the day in Montevideo, Uruguay, when her smartphone buzzed with a message. An impromptu gathering to watch Uruguay's World Cup soccer match was being organized. Through the power of a mobile messaging app, a majority of the Rotary Club of Plaza Matriz had soon assembled at a member's home to munch on baked goods and chips while rooting for their national team. That enthusiasm and ability to draw a crowd has made the club, which just received its charter in July, a success in the country's capital city. Made up almost entirely of young professionals,...

Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country.

What's Happening Now!

 
Message from the 2014-15 Rotary Club of Paso Robles President, Wade Taylor
 
Greetings Fellow Rotarians:
 
It's my honor and pleasure to serve as your Club President for the 2014-2015 year, especially in light of the fact that the City of Paso Robles is celebrating its 125th year as our Rotary Club celebrates its 91st year of service to this great community.
 
As an active member, your service and volunteer spirit shows why our Club has been recognized as being one of the best. I ask that we not rest on laurels, but to strive to improve our service to our community, state, nation and the world.
 
To accomplish this, there are several goals that I have set forth for the year and I ask for your help in completing them.
 
1. Encourage every member to seek out qualified potential members and invite them to join us. We must retain our current membership, while attempting to add another 5+% of our total membership. Each Rotarian, as well as our potential members are encouraged to attend our club events and socials and to also support our project and fundraising activities.  “Let's have fun while improving our Club”!
 
2.  Increase community awareness of our Clubs involvement in Paso Robles as well as the rest of the world.  By having more press releases and public relation opportunities with regards to our service, events, donations and scholarships we sponsor and support.
 
3.  I encourage a generous response to the Polio Plus Pledge Drive, equivalent to $25 or more per member.
 
4. Reach our goal of maintaining 100% Paul Harris Fellow Club status.
 
5. Continue to grow our 2 main premier fund raising events: The Rotary Wine Classic Golf Tournament and Rotary Winemakers' Cookoff as a means to build our scholarship contributions made available to qualified Paso Robles High School graduates to assist with their continuing education expenses (college or vocational).
 
6. Support and encourage those Rotarians who are interested in volunteering and serving Rotary International Projects.
 
7. Continue to support our very active Interact Club and its talented student members.
 
I am truly proud of this club and our members, all who have unique talents and a strong desire to support our community. With everyone's help, this can be a fun and productive year. I encourage all you to volunteer to serve and I look forward to hearing your suggestions and ideas to improve our club and our service to our community and the world.
 
Let's all embrace and support our 2014-15 Rotary International President Gary C.K. Huang and his Theme “Light Up Rotary".
