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 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.

Polyana - our PolioPlus Pig - disappeared from the Club's Changeover dinner on 1st July. Nobody seemed to know where the pig, which at that time contained $110 in donations, had gone.
 
We searched high and low - in all the usual "pig" places, but to no avail.
 
Just when we thought all was lost, President Eric - visiting Townsville in District 9550 for a Rotary Foundation presentation - was surprised to have Polyana returned.
 
The PolioPlus pig - which originally contained $110 - had mysteriously had the amount of donation doubled PLUS a further $56 in sundry donations was received.
 
Polyana's first adventure had added $166 to the PolioPlus donations and ended with a special welcome by the Club members at the next Club meeting.
