Congratulations to the Officers and Members for their exceptional contribution to this Success.
The Rotary Club of Indialantic devotes significant amounts of
Members time, energy and donations to raise money for local
Charities and volunteer time to work at charitable organizations
in support of their causes and the community in general
 
The Club runs various fund raising activities during the year to
raise money to support these endeavors.  This year the primary
fundraiser is the "Witchway 5K" run/walk done in conjunction
with the Town of Indialantic. Click on poster on home page.  The
Indialantic Rotary portion of the proceeds will go to "Space Coast
Volunteers in Medicine" and the "No Limits Academy"(for dis-
abled children). 
 
A listing of some of these charitable activities is shown below:
1. The Witch Way 5K Run/Walk that we do in conjunction with
    The Town of Indialantic as a major fund raiser each year was
    again a significant success.  The Indialantic Rotary proceeds
    from the Event were $10,600 which will be donated equally to
    Volunteers In Medicine $5300 and No Limits Academy $5300.
 
2. Two $2000 Scholarships matched by FIT for local exceptional
    high school seniors in Brevard enrolled in FIT.  The Club
    Foundation has given $210,275 with FIT matching funds of
    $88,125 to Brevard Students over the years.
3. A $1000 scholarship matched by FIT for a Brevard Rotaract
    student to attend FIT.
4. Support for the Brevard Sharing Center with $500 for their
    Summer Hunger Program and $300 for 3 bicycles for their
    Christmas Program.
5. Donation to the Patrick AFB 920th Rescue Wing's families
    and childrens picnic.
6. The two activities below are part of the Clubs Literacy
    Program chaired by Member Ruth Sanderson
 
    
   The club spends about $1000 on the Josh the Otter Books
   And applies to RI for a grant to help defray the cost.
  
   The club spends about $1000 on the Brain Game books
   And applies to RI for a grant to help defray the cost.
 
   The Brain Game book is meant as a “how-to” guide for parents. 
   It was developed by pediatricians, neonatologists, and childhood
   development specialists.  The aim is to translate complicated
   scientific research into easy to understand language.  We want
   to explain what is going on in each of the important stages of
   birth-to-three development.  We want to educate parents on things
   they can do to keep their child safe and healthy in general.  We
   want to teach caregivers the things they can do to simulate
   development processes in the brain.  These are not just general
   tips.  They are timed to coordinate with the brain development
   processes going on during each critical period.

  The Dorcas Outreach Center for Kids (DOCK) is a drop-in
  community centerin the Booker T. Washington neighborhood of
  Melbourne, Florida that serves children aged 5-18 after school and
  during the summer. Up to 50 children a day find a structured,
  nurturing environment where they can get a healthy snack, receive
  help with their homework, play outside in a big shaded yard, learn
  music, do arts and crafts, and socialize with their friends. Positive
  choices affecting health, behavior, and attitudes are modeled by
  caring staff and volunteers
 
  The goal at The DOCK  is to enable children to compete more
  effectively with their peers today and provide them with critical
  skills and knowledge they need for future success. The DOCK
  also serves as a gathering place for the neighborhood. The
  Golden Agers – a group of seniors – meets twice weekly for a
  game of bingo, socializing, and a hot lunch. Neighborhood
  residents make use of the computer lab, and there are
  community events throughout the year.

   That is a brief summary of our current activities and we will
   report on others as they are pursued.  We thank our members
   and the community for supporting our programs.
 
Don't Quit
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

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. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
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...
Member interview: Writer sheds light on FDR’s right-hand woman
Battling breast cancer in 2000, Kathryn Smith found comfort pursuing her lifelong interest in Franklin D. Roosevelt. The more she read, the more intrigued she became with the 32nd U.S. president’s private secretary, Marguerite Alice “Missy” LeHand. “I thought, what a fascinating life she had because she was by his side through the polio crisis, establishing the polio rehabilitation center in Warm Springs and then after his return to politics,” she says. Smith, a past president of the Rotary Club of Greater Anderson, S.C., and a longtime newspaper journalist, turned that curiosity into a book...
The Rotarian Conversation with Ban Ki-moon
One of United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s earliest memories is of fleeing with his family into the mountains during the Korean War, his village burning behind him. His father and grandfather had to forage for food in the woods; his mother gave birth to his siblings away from anything remotely resembling a health facility. “I have known hunger,” he says. “I have known war, and I have known what it means to be forced to flee conflict.” The soldiers who came to their rescue were flying the blue flag of the United Nations. The UN provided them with food and their schools with books....
Culture: Life in the bike lane
Like a lot of us, I spent much of my childhood riding bikes, but fell out of the habit for a while. Forty years. Then my wife and I moved to New York, where cyclists risk their necks in a daily Thunderdome of cabs, police cars, firetrucks, double-decker buses, messengers on motorbikes, and delivery trucks backing around corners at 20 miles an hour. Not for me! At least not until my 50th birthday, when my metabolic furnace flamed out. Calories started going directly from beer bottle to beer belly. It was time to start exercising. Either that or give up Samuel Adams, and I couldn’t do that to...
