Trussville Noon Rotary Club


Just when the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama was facing the extraordinary challenge to meet the growing needs for food assistance during the coronavirus crisis, one of its forklifts broke. ...

In a matter of days, six Rotary Clubs in the area got together to raise $7,500 to cover the cost of the forklift repair and provide preventative maintenance on the other machines.

My Rotary friend and mentor, Carol Argo and I as she wrapped up a successful PETS. Congrats to Carol Argo, our District Governor (soon to be)!
Just wrapped up a very long day at Mid-South PETS. Lots of great information! Hope to see you all on Wednesday in Trussville. Here’s the view tonight of the Chattanooga Convention Center.
In Rotary our motto is Service Above Self. We have Five Avenues of Service: Club, Vocational, Community, International and New Generations. Our Trussville Noon Rotary Club participates in all five: Our Club offers fun, friendship and fellowship; Through our represented vocations we are able to utilize our individual skill sets for good; In our Community we support projects such as food drives and programs to help children and others in difficult situations; Our club's international efforts include medical missions to underserved areas of Mexico; and Our college scholarships and sponsorship of High School Interact Club and RYLA students support developing the best in the New Generation. If you have an interest in learning more about what we do, please post here on Facebook or private message us and we will be happy to contact you.
Our Club President, Hugh Brindley, and our Community Service Committee Chair, Jimmy Agnew, have been in Mexico again this week on our club sponsored medical mission trip. We have some exciting things going on there and will update you with the details when they return.

Our program this week was Caleb Crosby from the Alabama Policy Institute brought to us by the Birmingham Area's Rotary Speaker's Bureau and hosted by Dale Wallace of our club.
Our guest speaker next week, Jan.10th, will be Glenn Wills author of the Forgotten Alabama books. He has traveled the state documenting the history and photographing abandoned and forgotten places. His presentations are interesting and compelling. He will have books available for purchase. I hope everyone can attend.

Tickets are $5 from any club member or at the door. Profits support local community charities and projects. Come out and eat some pancakes and sausage and help support your community.

You may wonder - How are Rotarians responding to the Covid-19 pandemic? Here is the response from Rotary International:
As people of action, Rotary members want to find ways to respond to COVID-19, and to help people affected by it. The Rotary Foundation offers several options that Rotarians can use to help care for and protect people in their own communities and others around the world.

Q: Can my district use district grants to fund COVID-19 related projects?

A: Yes, districts can use district grant funds to support local activities, like purchasing thermometers, protective medical gear, or other items to donate to medical professionals who need them. Districts can also use contingency funds from an open district grant or repurpose previously planned activities as a COVID-19 response.

Q: Can I use a global grant to fund COVID-19 related projects?

A: Yes. Global grants remain an excellent way to make a transformative impact in a community. If medical equipment is needed in order to respond effectively to COVID-19, global grants can help pay for these items. Note that global grant applications must adhere to standard eligibility requirements as noted in the grant terms and conditions and the area of focus policy statements.

Q: Can I apply for a disaster response grant for COVID-19 related projects?

A: No, disaster response grants are no longer available to support COVID-19 related projects.

Q: Can my club or district use Rotary Foundation grant funds to purchase COVID-19 vaccines?

A: No, Rotary Foundation grant funds may not be used to purchase COVID-19 vaccines. This restriction applies to district, global and disaster response grants.

For additional information, contact your regional grants officer.

Q: Will Rotary have a role to play in COVID-19 vaccinations?

A: Yes. Rotary will tap into its decades of experience in bringing polio to the brink of eradication, to highlight the power and efficacy of vaccines. Rotary’s tenacity, strategic partnerships, and innovation can all support the effort to protect communities from COVID-19.

Rotary and its partners at the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) recently announced that it is ready to support vaccine introduction and delivery. The group is also committed to equitable distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine and lending its support to ensure that all communities have equal access to vaccines.

More information and resources will soon be available for clubs and districts.

Q: Are the RI Board of Directors and Foundation Trustees taking action in regards to vaccines?

A: Yes, they are. At a recent joint session, the RI Board and Trustees created a joint task force that will develop and execute a plan to encourage Rotary and Rotaract clubs to support vaccinations.

Q: How can Rotary and Rotaractors get involved?

A: There are several ways members can get involved. Members can enhance community education on COVID-19 vaccinations by sharing information from local and regional health authorities and supporting their efforts. They should contact local health departments to determine where assistance is most needed. Moreover, members can connect with local health officials, including World Health Organization and UNICEF where applicable, to advocate for and support their efforts to ensure all communities receive equal access to the vaccine.

Q: What about vaccine misinformation and hesitancy? Are there ways to combat this?

A: Yes. Rotary is asking members to disseminate accurate, fact-based information as provided by local health agencies. It’s important to spread the word that vaccines work by using #vaccineswork in their social media postings. Highlight Rotary’s work on polio as a key example.

Members can invite medical professionals or local health officials to speak at club meetings. Try to also engage with local media, for example writing letters to the editor, in support of local efforts and vaccine safety and efficacy—using Rotary’s success in polio eradication as a proof point.

Q: COVID-19 is still spreading around the world. What should members do to help stop the spread?

A: Members need to continue to participate in projects that support mask wearing, social distancing, proper hygiene practices, and donations of personal protection equipment.

More importantly, members should lead by example, by wearing masks and practicing social distancing . Share images online that reflect these lifesaving behaviors. Get vaccinated. When the time arrives for you to receive the vaccine, share your experience online.

Rotarians help others in time of need. So many people are hungry and visiting food distribution centers and food banks who never have done so before. Our club was recently awarded a Rotary District Grant to help a local non profit, Serving You, for their food bank ministry.

What an un expected challenge this Rotary year has been! We want to thank Club President Glenn Slye for everything he has been and continues to do for the club in extraordinary times.

Dave is slated to complete PETS training and will eventually take over as President. We thank Glenn for his continued service and wish Dave well in his efforts.

Rotary members around the world are making an impact in the fight against COVID-19 with Rotary’s disaster response grants. They are supplying hospitals in Belgium, Croatia, and Italy with lifesaving ventilators. They’re equipping frontline health care workers in Korea, Nigeria, the Philippines, Spain, and the United States with desperately needed personal protective equipment. Because of this global need, The Rotary Foundation has increased the amount available for these grants from $1 million to $3 million. In the midst of such difficult and uncertain times, Rotary members around the world persevere. No challenge is so big that we can’t make a difference. Contribute:
