Chuck finally did it after being friends with many of us and after several years of helping us behind the scenes. Chuck is married for 45 years to Mary Ann, was a member of another service organization for 20-25 years and said that he  finally reached a point in life where his time allowed him to join us and he “is happy to be a part of it” He’s lived in town for 40 years, has 4 kids and 4 grandkids. He began his career as a police officer for ten years, then switched to office supply marketing and then into communication videos for corporate events and serves as a consultant.  Welcome Chuck!

WHEELS OF HOPE,” OUR WHEELCHAIR RECYCLING PROJECT: We have picked up 24 wheelchairs towards our goal of 50 for the year. PV Rotary is working with Joni and Friends to collect, refurbish and deliver wheelchairs to other countries. Please let your friends and neighbors know of our effort. If you have a non-electric wheel chair that is no longer needed, it may be dropped off at Physical Therapy Services, 715 Newark Pompton Tpk., Pompton Plains, New Jersey 07444. Contact: Eric Jackowsky 973-835-6115. If you need Pequannock Valley Rotary to pick it up, please contact: DougCook123@optonline.net 973-809-1502 Some living alone do not feel comfortable in having strangers come to their homes, so Erick will arrange for one of the women from his office to make the pickup!

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...
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...
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....
