Christina Discello, Director of 'The Community Clothes Closet' (CCC) in New Kensington, spoke to the club about her passion.  The Community Clothes Closet was created to help adults of our community who are experiencing financial hardship.  It is their hope that by providing clothing and personal hygiene essentials at extremely reasonable prices, that our neighbors will be able to expand their limited income.  Christina related that no one is turned away, regardless of their ability to pay.  Customers are able to take their time and shop for the items they need rather that driving to Pittsburgh or Greensburg.  Items on the CCC wish list are quality new or gently used clothing and footwear, volunteers, and financial donations.  CCC also has an immediate and on-going need for diapers as low income recipients can no longer purchase them on their card.  The CCC is located at 319 Tenth Street in New Kensington and it is a social outreach ministry of Mount Saint Peters Parish.  Hours are generally 11AM -1pm Mondays, 6-8PM - Wednesdays, and 10AM-1PM on Saturdays.    Phone number is 724-289-6528

The Burrell Area Rotary Club is pleased to announce the Hometown Flavors Buffet to be held on Sunday, April 24, 2016 at the Lower Burrell VFW from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM.   Last year’s event was a huge success, thanks to the 20+ vendors who participated with over $3,000 raised for local charities.  This is an exciting opportunity for local food-related businesses to market their products and services and increase exposure to a large audience while helping the community.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

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...
