Better Angels Skills Workshop:
How to Talk Across Our Differences
 
Please join us for the Better Angels Skills Workshop to:
    • Learn skills to have respectful conversations with people who disagree with you.
    • Clarify differences
    • Search for common ground
    • Deal with the stress among family members and friends whose view differ from yours

 The Better Angels Skills Workshop will help you learn how to disagree without being disagreeable.  After a presentation, you will have an opportunity to practice conversation skills. You will practice in a pair with someone with a similar viewpoint. 

 As you know, Rotary is a neutral, non-political organization and does not endorse parties or candidates. We believe life – and our clubs- are richer with diversity of thought, culture, and yes… political leanings. 

 We respect the goals of Better Angels as an agent to help citizens practice listening, empathy, and appreciation for those who we disagree with.

 Hope to see you on October 18th!

 About Better Angels:  Launched in 2016, Better Angels is a bipartisan citizen’s movement to unify our divided nation. By bringing red and blue Americans together into a working alliance, we’re building new ways to talk to one another, participate together in public life, and influence the direction of the nation.

 We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory…will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature. – Abraham Lincoln, 1861

         World Polio Day-October 24, 2018

   World Polio Day, October 24, 2018 is next week.  Hundreds of clubs are planning special celebrations.  Gather some friends and view the screening of Rotary's latest virtual reality film, Two Drops of Patience.  If that is not enough information to you can also watch the True Story about Polio.  This amazing True Story about Polio:  BREATHE :   Click Here:

View the World Polio Day event which will be live streamed from the College of Physicians in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA at 

You don’t have to travel to Philadelphia to take part in Rotary’s World Polio Day event on 24 October. You can watch a livestream of the proceedings from your computer or smartphone starting at 18:30 Philadelphia time (UTC-4). A recording will be available shortly after the event on endpolio.org. 

Rotary will also stream the event in French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish. 

This year’s event will be livestreamed from the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, known as the birthplace of American medicine. It is one of the oldest professional medical organizations in the United States.

Global health experts and Rotary’s celebrity polio ambassadors will discuss our remarkable progress toward a polio-free world. Patience Asiimwe, the protagonist of Rotary’s upcoming virtual reality film “Two Drops of Patience,” will introduce the movie. A sneak peek from Rotary’s documentary “Drop to Zero” will also be featured. Jeffrey Kluger, senior editor for Time magazine, will discuss his experience traveling to Nigeria with Rotary to report on polio eradication. And we’ll celebrate the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.

 Message from the bulletin editor:
 
      As the editor of the weekly newsletter, I am requesting your assistance in developing content.  If you have a story or news to share with members, please send it to me.
 You can easily use your smart phone to record a video.  Or if you have a passion to work on a project, develop a project, or support other groups, please share with the other
members.  
 
     Your President Elect has sent an invitation to join him and other members at a pot luck dinner on Sunday, May 13th at his house.  Starting at 5:00, we will have time to visit, meet and get to know each other.  
      
     As the advisor to the club, I am recommending the club to hold an online meeting at least once a  month, preferably on a Saturday morning to accommodate the members from other parts of the world.   Watch for more details.  
 
    If you have  not paid your 2017-2018 dues, please consider doing so today.  We will soon be heading into the new Rotary year which starts July 1, 2018.  Dues will be due to International and the district immediately after that date. 
 
   Hope to see you at the Pot Luck dinner at Jon Grayson's house on the 13th.
 
  Yours in Rotary,
  Marlene Gargulak, PDG
