Once again under the leadership of Steve Sandberg, vocational committee chair along with Kim Sutter from the JHS Vocational Services Committee our club conducted a mock interview role playing experience with JHS students. Most of the students were around fifteen years old and for many it was their first experience asking for a job and sitting across from a completed stranger. The pretend application was for part time work at Tim Horton’s and the goal is to get them comfortable in a job interview situation and hopefully give them some useful tips in how to be successful when they do it for real.

This was my second year doing this and it is great fun meeting many very nice young students just starting out in life with all the challenges and rewards that they will encounter. Hopefully their time with us will help them in the future as they compete for positions in the job market.

A short 4 minute video which highlights the progress towards a polio free world which all started with the Rotary International Program "End Polio Now". It may happen in 2015 or maybe not until 2018 but we will make it!!!!!!
 
 

 
 
The district conference is a great place to learn more about Rotary, have fun and make new friends such as Sharon Hamilton with District Governor Jack Amico,Todd Allen, exchange student Laja Dorrimg and Lisa Yaggie. Next years conference is in Holiday Valley and that will be a great venue!! Plan ahead.
 
 

 

 

 
 

Christine Wanderoild of France is the newest member of the Jamestown Rotary Club.  Christine holds a business degree and worked for twenty-two years in multiple management positions at HP/Hewlett-Packard in France.  In 2010, when her family relocated within France due to her husband’s job, she went back to school to earn a degree in dietetics.  Prior to moving to the United States, Christine had planned to open a dietetics office in France to treat nutritional deficiencies and to serve children with difficulties in school.

 

The Wanderoilds recently moved to the Jamestown Area in order that Christine’s husband, Pascal, could be named Plant Manager of our SKF facility.   Christine will serve the community as a member of our Rotary Club.

The Jamestown Rotary Club was out on Interstate 86 once again picking up trash and searching for treasures. This fall event took place over a two day period ( 10/11 &10/22/2014) with both sides of our area responsibility being cleaned up before the first snow fall. This is one of the best ways to get to know your fellow Rotarian and for some very odd reason it is actually fun.
The Pickers - Jeff, Russ, Lynne, Joel, Walt, Laja, Tory, Todd, Pat and Dan.

Rotary Day at the United Nations highlights the strength of partnerships
To strengthen their 69-year-old partnership, leaders from Rotary and the United Nations met this month in New York City for Rotary Day at the United Nations. The two organizations began working together with the aim of maintaining peace after World War II. Today, the relationship has evolved to include humanitarian work in areas like gender equality, child and maternal health, and disease treatment and prevention. While the UN's Millennium Development Goals are set to expire in 2015, its leaders are preparing for an even more ambitious humanitarian agenda of eradicating extreme poverty by...
A major breakthrough against polio
Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) are approaching a significant milestone: the eradication of type 3 wild poliovirus. The last case of polio caused by the type 3 virus was reported in Yobe, Nigeria, on 10 November 2012. "We may have eradicated a second of three; that's a major milestone," said Dr. Stephen Cochi, a senior adviser at the Center for Global Health at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, speaking to the BBC. Rotary has played an important role in bringing type 3 polio close to extinction. PolioPlus grants have provided key...
Rotary’s World Polio Day live-streamed event is a huge success
More than 23,000 viewers in 24 countries tuned in to Rotary's World Polio Day event, streamed live on 24 October.

Rotary has contributed more than $1.2 billion to polio eradication since 1979. For World Polio Day, Rotary released $44.7 million in grants to fight the disease in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. In addition to the update, the event included entertainment by...
Malala Yousafzai wins the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize
Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager shot in the head for speaking out against the Taliban in support of girls' education, has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2014. Yousafzai, whose father is a Rotarian, shares the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, a native of India who has worked to combat the exploitation of children for financial gain, according to an announcement in October from the Norwegian Nobel Committee. In announcing the award, the committee praised Yousafzai for demonstrating that "children and young people, too, can contribute to improving their own situations." It noted...
Rotary’s world headquarters hosts Evanston Rotary Day
Business owners and community leaders in Evanston, Illinois, USA, joined Rotary staff and family members in a celebration of the organization's cultural diversity at an open-house Rotary Day event at Rotary's world headquarters on 25 October.

The open house was held immediately after Evanston's Day of Caring, during which volunteers planted trees, fixed up buildings, performed yard work, painted, and participated in other community projects throughout the city.
