Being Rotarian

Below is a beautiful poem which summarizes what we are Rotarians.

POEM ON ROTARY

Where there is darkness, Rotary shares light.
Where there is loneliness, Rotary shares love.

Where there is illiteracy, Rotary shares education.
Where there is ignorance, Rotary shares knowledge.

Where there are problems, Rotary shares solutions.
Where there is enmity, Rotary shares friendship.

Where there are unearthed talents, Rotary shares opportunities.
Where there are needs, Rotary shares new horizons of living.

Where there is a tear, Rotary shares smiles.
Where there is a distance, Rotary shares the miles.

Where there is pain, Rotary shares the agony.
Where there is gain, Rotary shares the joy.

Where there are achievers, Rotary shares the compliments.
Where there are failures, Rotary shares success supplements.

Where there are orphans, Rotary shares the family.
Where there are elders, Rotary shares time.

Where there is childhood, Rotary shares values of life.
Where there is youth, Rotary shares the ladder of leadership.

Where there is unemployment, Rotary shares career choices.
Where there is lack of awareness, Rotary shares vocational training.

Where there is despair, Rotary shares hope.
Where there is depression, Rotary shares inspiration.

Where there is weakness, Rotary shares strength.
When there is chaos, Rotary shares harmony.

Where there is illness, Rotary shares curing.
Where there are disabilities, Rotary shares ability.

Where there are contingencies, Rotary shares might.
Where there is poverty, Rotary shares ways to wealth.

Where there is nothing, Rotary shares something.
Where there is everything,
Rotary sources it and shares it with those who have nothing.

This beautiful poem was written by Mrs. Jayanthi Raja Seenivasan during the year 2007 when the theme was Rotary Shares. It was published in Rotary News too. Mrs. Jayanthi is wife of PDG Rtn V Raja Seenivasan (District Governor RI Dist 3230, 12-13)

Rise Against Hunger - Issuu

The Rotary Club of Reston had a successful meal packing event! With the help of the Reston Community, not only did the Rotary Club of Reston raise funds for the local community, but we also packed over 10,000 meals.

The meals were stored in the Rise Against Hunger's National Captial warehouse and were shipped to their in-country partner ARAHA - the Amerian Relief Agency for the Horn of Africa in Somalia.

ARAHA is an organization that nourishes lives through food assistance and other services in Somalia.

The Rotary Club of Reston is grateful to all the volunteers who helped or donated. The meals you packed helped those in need.

Also, thanks to Around Reston Magazine for covering our event!

Reston Rotary Foundation, Student Rotaract Club of South Lakes High School and local community recently came together to help the hungry.

In 1988, when the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) was launched, polio was present in more than 125 countries and paralyzed about 1,000 children per day. Thanks to immunization efforts that have reached nearly 3 billion children, the incidence of polio has decreased by 99 percent since then.

Rotary is proud to have partnered with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to eradicate polio from the planet.

Today we welcomed a Rotarian from Cairo, Egypt! We loved learning about her club and telling her about the good things that we do in our community.

One of the great things about being a Rotarian is you can visit a club anywhere in the world and find instant fellowship.
