Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends.

Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...

On August 1st the Pearland Rotary hosted the Annual Grid Iron Luncheon on August, 1st.  The Grid Iron Luncheon is considered an signal to the beginning of High School Football to area fans.  The event featured area High School Head Coaches taking to the podium to highlight the inspiring abilities of their programs and their prospects for the 2017 season. 
 
The audience of over sixty business leaders and high school football fans were even treated to some light banter between the head coaches all ready to settle all difference on the Grid Iron.   Coaches that took the podium were Eric Wells (Dawson Eagles), Brad Butler (Shadow Creek Sharks), Mike Norman (Dobie Longhorns), Mike Allison (Clear Brook Wolverines) and James Farmer (Pearland Oilers).  With the recent retirement of log-time Pearland High Coach Tony Heath it was certainly recognized that many of these coaches sprout from Heaths' coaching tree. 
 
Pearland Rotary auctioned a certified J.J. Watt signed Houston Texans football helmet to generate funds to purchase new defibrillators for Pearland ISD.  The event was sponsored by Texas Citizens Bank, Craig Slater - Farmer's Insurance, Heritage Bank and A & A Cleaning Services, who also donated the signed J.J. Watt helmet.  Texas Citizens Bank was the high bidder for the helmet.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
David Moore, the Executive Director of the Women's Center of Brazoria County, Inc., delivered an enlightening message to the club on the ills of Domestic Violence. 
 
Domestic Violence is an oppressive form of Power and Control exerted physically, mentally and sexually over another person. The FBI estimates that one in every two women will be physically abused at some point in their lives by men with whom they live.  Brazoria County Law enforcement agencies receive one domestic violence call for every 100 persons in the county's population each year.  In fact, Brazoria County is tied for fifth in the number of homicides related to domestic violence. 
 
The Women's Center of Brazoria County is a non-profit, United Way agency established to meet the needs of victims of domestic violence.  The Women's Center serves people of all ages, regardless of socioeconomic level, race, gender, religion, handicap, sexual orientation or national origin.  They provide shelter, rape crisis, parenting classes and many other support services for victims and their children. 
 
Their 24-Hour Hotline number is 979-549-5166 or 800-243-5788.
 
Consider supporting the Women's Center at their 2017 Roast and Toast on Thursday, October 5th at the Lake Jackson Civic Center.  The Guest of Honor will be County Judge L.M. "Matt" Sebesta, Jr. and tickets are $100 each.  The MC of the event will be Texas State Rep.

Did you know that Rotary has one of the most extensive, world-wide, self-interest networking opportunities on the planet!  It is called Rotary Fellowships (www.ROTARY.ORG/FELLOWSHIPS). 
 
Rotary Fellowships are groups of Rotarians, Rotarians' family members, Rotaractors, alumni and program participants.  Members of these groups share an interest, wish to further their vocational development, or want to make new friends, explore opportunities for service, and enhance their experience in Rotary.  Fellowships, which must have active members in at least three countries, provide a chance to make lasting friendships with people outside of your club. 
 
Several examples of Rotary Fellowships are Antique Automobiles (www.achafr.eu), Motorcycling (www.ifmr.org), Genealogy (www.facebook.com/RIfellowship), Wine (www.whiskeydram.org), Doll Lovers (www.rotarydlf.org), Beer (www.rotarybrew.org), Police and Law Enforcement (www.polepfr.org) and Marathon Running (www.rotarianrun.org).  Their are more than 70 active Rotary Fellowships to join!!!! 
 
To join a fellowship, visit the group's website or if you would like to start a fellowship, write to rotaryfellowships@rotary.org

The Pearland Rotary Club's Annual Grid Iron Luncheon held on August 4th at Golfcrest Country Club in Pearland was a tremendous success. Coaches from seven of the area high schools spoke for a few minutes about their football programs and made their prognostications about the upcoming season.

Attendance was strong and the event was a success.

At 62, Joe Haralson is the longest serving active duty Texas Ranger and his presentation on June 30th was inspiring.  Ranger Haralson gave a brief history of the Texas Rangers, described current operations and shared many interesting facts not only about arrests and incidents that the Rangers were involved with but also ones he participated in.  Our meeting room was packed and some guests drove many miles to hear Ranger Haralson speak.
 
 
 
Our own TDPS Sergeant Craig Cummings delivered an emotional and fact filled presentation on June 23rd about the impact on our society and personal lives of drunk driving.  Sergeant Craig Cummings has served in law enforcement for over 16 years.  He is also an adjunct professor at the College of the Mainland.  He currently supervises troopers in Brazoria County.
