What's Happening at Newton Rotary!
The Giving Factory of Cradles to Crayons is now open for in person volunteering! 
This is their NEW location right in Newtonville.
 
This is a wonderful way to help get out useful donations of clothing and more to those children who need it most in our area.
 
What: We will be sorting and quality controlling donated merchandise. The merchandise will have been quarantined since being donated. 
 
WhenSaturday, November 7th from 10 - 12. We are committed for that time slot and they are counting on us!
 
At your earliest convenience, please email Susan Paley by clicking HERE to let her know if you are able to assist.
 
Bring family and friends (over 10 years of age). Our group is capped at 8 spaces so she will need to know ASAP if we can meet our commitment within our club, or if she will have to offer up spaces to others outside of the Club in order to ensure that we meet our commitment! It seems like November 7th is a long way off but - Saturday slots are hard to come by so she grabbed this one!!
 
Let Susan know ASAP if you are able to help.

Please join us on Tuesday, September 15th at noon for our "Focus on Food Insecurity" presentations.

The Borgen Project will present about global poverty and their efforts to reduce it. The Borgen Project believes that leaders of the most powerful nation on earth should be doing more to address global poverty. They're the innovative, national campaign that is working to make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy.

Sue Lowcock and Regina Wu will also be joining us from The Newton Food Pantry and will present their findings from a recent community needs assessment.

Please email RotaryNewtonMa@gmail.com to get the Zoom link.

 

Join us as we welcome world renowned tenor John MacMaster to our meeting.

John has had a career spanning the globe, and will tell us about this unusual career.Since his astonishing portrayal of Canio in PAGLIACCI at Glimmerglass Opera, John Mac Master has been in demand at the highest international level for the dramatic tenor repertoire. Performances and recording projects have included Florestan in FIDELIO with Sir Colin Davis in London, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with Sir Bernard Haitink (both with the London Symphony Orchestra) and his debut at Dresden’s Semper Oper as Calaf in TURANDOT conducted by Fabio Luisi. Mr. Mac Master’s acclaimed Metropolitan Opera debut came as Canio in PAGLIACCI in performances that included the Saturday Afternoon ‘Live from the Met’ radio broadcast. Of particular note was his assumption of the role of Tristan in TRISTAN UND ISOLDE for Welsh National Opera conducted by Mark Wigglesworth and a subsequent outing at the Met in this demanding role, with Levine in the pit.

Join us on Tuesday, July 28th at noon to hear Chrissie Lawson (a member of the Rotary Club of Camberley, England) talk about her work for the Health Research Authority, which is part of the National Health Service in the UK. HRA provide an Ethics service so that research proposals can be reviewed by an Ethics committee.

Members will get the link from President Ron. Others are VERY welcome to join us! Email RotaryNewtonMa@gmail.com for the Zoom link!

We are delighted to congratulate Newton Rotarian Dr. Tatjana Kobb for her appointment as a 2020-2021 Rotary International Representative at the United Nations headquarters in New York. Tatjana was selected for this role by RI President Holger Knaack. 
 
The President of RI annually appoints Rotarians and Rotaractors to serve as Representatives, with an aim of fostering relationships with UN agencies and key international organizations and raising awareness of Rotary programs, while keeping Rotary informed of their organization's initiatives. The network advances a century-old tradition of fostering global harmony. Through the Representatives participation in various high-level meetings and events, they help advance the aims of Rotary around the world-chief among them the eradication of polio and new actions including the seventh focus area now on the environment.
 
Tatjana’s focus has been supporting the global health actions and contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and she will be committed to facilitating Rotary program and public relations objectives; enhancing Rotary’s visibility; and furthering communications between Rotary International and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). The largest under UN, it is the organizations’ global development network, committed to ending poverty once and for all. It connects countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life for themselves, working to get to the root causes of poverty and create lasting change.
You are invited to join District Governors Pam and Diana for an evening of celebration, and be part of history in the making. Come join us in our first ever and hopefully our last Online Celebration, as we move forward from our experiences with “Rotary Connects the World” into our new year, as we take action to create lasting change by “Rotary Opening Opportunities”. Invite your family to celebrate and support our Rotarians and leaders of District 7910.
 
Newton Rotarian Michael Woo will be hosting this event!
 
The One-hour agenda will consist of District Leaders presentations, DGs Changeover, 2020-2021, AGs and Presidents recognition, a few surprises, and Lots of FUN!!!
 
The regular monthly Post 440 Food Pantry is scheduled for this Friday, 3/20. Instead of the usual format, 20 volunteers will get together and prepackage the food for recipients. Volunteers will not come into contact with the general public; smart hygiene, good sense, and social distancing will be the rules of the morning. Volunteers will be asked to meet at the Post at 7:00 am; it'll likely take 2 hours.
 
Keeping in mind that the most vulnerable amongst us truly need assistance today!
 
If you can help, let Susan Paley know ASAP by clicking HERE! Not sure how many more volunteers can be accommodated / are needed but 20 is the max.
 
Thank you so very much. Stay healthy and socially distant.
What's one of the best kept secrets of Rotary? We have a LOT of fun. Last night's Holiday Party was no exception. Great food and drink, interesting conversation and a cut-throat Yankee Swap (evidently Marie Presti can 'feel' the energy of the gifts, lol). A BIG thank you to Dick & Lee Hardaway for hosting, Cindy Holle Laughrea for organizing and Jack Prior for the great photos. And to EVERYONE for bringing an amazing selection of food and swap gifts.
