Return to Normal 

 by Leonard Sullivan
I really miss our weekly Rotary Meetings and eagerly await the return to our traditional meeting format. Most humans need social contact, and Rotarians are a special group who enjoy being together. Our common belief in service, community involvement, and adhering to the four-way test when dealing with others gives us a common bond.

Half dozen or more Rotarians are like brothers to me, another fifty are very, very good friends, and dozens of others are associates in business, government, other organizations or community projects, and church affiliations. Many of the Oklahoma City Rotarians I have known for 50+ years. I saw my doctor and dentist almost weekly at the meetings. Fellow members are an unending source of information in almost any subject you can imagine. Visiting Rotarians in their various places of employment provides a plethora of information .

District Newsletter - February 2021


I hope everyone stays warm and safe in this extra chilly weather that has blown into the state. 
The month of February is Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution Month at Rotary. This focus area is significant to me, and I love that by being part of Rotary, I can help make a difference in this way. Not only is part of Rotary's vision is making an impact in the world but to also promote lasting change. By members taking action to address the underlying causes of conflict, including poverty, discrimination, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources, we can create environments of peace. How does your club help in this area? 

Rotary Peace Fellowship Application

Rotarians, by coming together in service, work towards a better world. Local and global service to fight disease, expand education, grow local economies, and protect the environment provide immediate benefits for many. Together these actions contribute to Rotary’s highest calling of laying the foundations for peace in our communities.
Rotary supports peacebuilding efforts directly through awarding up to 130 fellowships each year to community leaders from around the world. The Fellows pursue a master’s degree or professional certification at one of five Rotary Peace Centers. The fellowship covers all tuition and fees, room and board, transportation, and study related expenses.
