Effective Tuesday July 11th the Rotary Club of Nauset is relocating our club meeting to the Orleans Odd Fellows Lodge at #2 Namskaket Road. We will also be resuming a weekly meeting schedule.  Namskaket Road is located on the west (Left) side of Main Street and  Rock Harbor Road about 2/10ths of a mile north of the "Bike Path" crossing on Main Street.
The Odd Fellows Lodge was originally built in 1855 as a school house and has been used as a community center by the Odd Fellows since 1893. The Odd fellows are currently raising funds to renovate the building by adding a three story atrium with an elevator to provide handicap access to all floors.
 There will be no weekly meeting on July 4th. Our club will resume weekly meetings at 7:00 AM beginning July 11th. Coffee will be provided and perhaps light refreshments as plans progress. Hope to see you there on July 11th. 


Marcia introduced the program for the day. She said that the Galazzi’s have been investing in Cape Cod Tech volunteering since moving here in 1974. She added “It has been a pleasure to watch the school flourish.” Stephan Galazzi has been on the school committee and invited Superintendent Bob Sanborn, and Director of Technical Education Lou Colombo to speak to the Club.

Thanks in part to the Rotary clubs of Cape Cod, collecting blood for local hospital patients will get easier.
The clubs have raised $100,000 for the purchase of a bloodmobile for the blood center at Cape Cod Healthcare, the parent company of Cape Cod and Falmouth hospitals.
The bloodmobile will allow the organization to collect blood across the Cape by holding drives at businesses, churches, schools and organizations that may not have the space to hold a drive.
All of the blood collected will remain on the Cape, according to a statement by Jim Saben of the Yarmouth Rotary Club. Currently less than 40 percent of blood needed by Cape Cod and Falmouth hospitals is collected on the Cape. The rest must be purchases from off-Cape sources.
The Nauset Club is proud to have been involved with this Cape-wide initiative

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...
