The time has come to register for the 16th Annual Rotary USA Mexico Friendship Conference and Global Grants Exchange. We will travel to Veracruz, Mexico – the original gulf port city of renown. There will be fun, food, dancing, a carnival mask party, visits to local attractions and, of course, work on new global grant projects. We will be hosted by Rotarians in Veracruz and you won’t want to miss this opportunity to make friends and get involved in international service.
 
Registration is $150 and covers meals and ground transportation in Veracruz. We will be home hosted by Rotarians in the 8 clubs in Veracruz.
 
Those who have attended this conference will tell you, there are no better hosts and there is no better way for your club to either find an international partner for a global grant project or find a project for your club to serve as international partner.

Why should YOU join this Rotary Club?  A few of the reasons are:  Friendship, Business Development, Personal Growth and Development, Leadership Development, Citizenship in the Community, Citizenship in the World, and FUN!  Join us as a guest on any Tuesday of the month and if you like what you see, ask for a membership packet.  You can also contact Ron Williams, Membership Director, by clicking on the email link on this home page.

If you are just starting out in the local business world, or you are a seasoned veteran, you should be a Rotarian!

 

 
 

Do you know the power of the EREY concept?  What could the Rotary Foundation do if every Rotarian contributed $100 minimum every year to the Rotary Foundation? Eradicate polio? More water projects? Starving children?  Grants to our club? It's all possible if we each do our part.

President Noel reminded us that we should all make this contribution every year.  Our Club makes it practically painless by adding an optional charge of $25 to the quarterly billing.  Currently, 23 of our 28 members are contributing to the cause.  $25 in a 90-day period works out to only 28 CENTS per DAY.  You will never get a BIGGER bang for your buck than that!

If you are already contributing regularly ... be proud of what your contribution has meant to Rotary.  If you are not contributing, please join us to make Prescott Frontier Rotary an "EREY" club and help change the world!

Monarch School CEO Erin Spiewak appeared as one of the show's guests, along with Monarch Alumnus Cynthia Valenzuela, who attested to the positive, life-changing experience Monarch School gave her and...
Practicing peace
Nations around the world will observe the International Day of Peace on 21 September, a date designated by the United Nations in 2001 as "a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence." Rotary's commitment to building peace and resolving conflict is rooted in the Rotary Peace Centers program, formed in 2002. Each year, the program prepares up to 100 fellows to work for peace through a two-year master's degree program or a three-month professional certificate program at university partners worldwide. Today, nearly 1,000 peace centers alumni are applying their skills — negotiating peace in conflict...
Charity Navigator upgrades Rotary Foundation’s rating
The Rotary Foundation has received the highest possible score from Charity Navigator, an independent evaluator of charities in the U.S. In the most recent ratings, released on 1 September, The Rotary Foundation earned the maximum 100 points for both financial health and accountability and transparency. The ratings reflect how efficiently Charity Navigator believes the Foundation will use donations, how well it has sustained programs and services, and its level of commitment to good governance and openness. In the previous rating, the Foundation had received 97 points.
eBay Live Auctions that benefit Rotary
Each month, eBay, the world’s largest auction website, selects a set of upcoming Live Auction events and donates a portion of all sales proceeds to Rotary. Only U.S. auction sales are eligible. See the schedule of September auctions.
Rotary district collecting relief funds for Louisiana flood victims
Rotary clubs of District 6200 are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana, USA, earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.
