Rotary District 7450 is a group of 50 local Clubs that believe it starts with a commitment to Service Above Self.  In more than 34,000 clubs worldwide, you’ll find members volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support literacy, education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio among other service initiatives.

On Saturday April 27, at the District Conference we shared a tribute to Rotarians we lost over the past year.  We share it here for those who were unable to attend the conference.

Speech Contest: Is Your Club Ready?

Excitement is building, and we've got a question for you: Is YOUR Club participating in the upcoming High School Speech Contest based on the 4 Way Test? 

Students deliver TED-like talks and can win a $1000 Grand Prize!  A new twist this year: no requirement to memorize speeches, but extra points will be awarded to those who choose to go above and beyond. Not only that, it's beneficial to all concerned!

To discover the impact you could make, watch these short, inspiring videos from last year's contestants: Sloane Wolfe and Daniel Emdin.

Presidents - look for an email from the contest committee to arrive in your inbox Tuesday, December 5 requesting an RSVP - a simple "we're in," or "we'd like to be in, but we're not sure," or "we're out."  It will really help with scheduling the Semi-finals.

The District website has updated information, including helpful instructions on how your club can hold a contest.   Together, we can empower high school students to create a brighter future through the Roger Taylor Rotary Speech Contest. 

Key Dates:

  • NOW: Reach out to your high schools to let them know the dates, get students interested, and start to plan your club contest now for Jan - March
  • NOW: Reach out to the District Contest Committee for a presentation on how to hold a club contest, or to get involved with the committee
  • End of March: Deadline to Complete Club Contests to Identify Contestants for Semi-finals 
  • April 6: District Semi-Finals
  • Weekend of April 27-28: District Conference (Finals)
For more information, contact the Roger Taylor Speech Contest Committee at RSC7450@gmail.com.


Finding the Next Peace Fellows

Rotary is looking for engaged leaders who are promoting national and international cooperation and peace throughout their lives.

Do you know of a dynamic person working in a career related to peace-building who could benefit from a fully-supported Masters Degree or Professional Certificate earned at one of the Rotary Peace Centers? Or, perhaps you know someone in a peace-building network who might know of someone at the right time of their career for this opportunity? If so, please share your idea with the District’s Peace Fellowship Subcommittee Chair, Joy Charlton, HERE

Statement from Rotary International

Sunday, June 21, 2020

At Rotary, we have no tolerance for racism. Promoting respect, celebrating diversity, demanding ethical leadership, and working tirelessly to advance peace are central tenets of our work.

We have more work to do to create more just, open and welcoming communities for all people.

We know there are no easy fixes and that challenging conversations and work lie before all of us. Rotary’s strength has long been our ability and commitment to bringing people together. We will tap into that strength now as we stand with those who are working for peace and justice. 

Rotary will do our part to listen, learn and take action to ensure that we continue to contribute to making positive change.
