 A Club Service Project of Rotary E-Club of District 7250

What is a Rotary e-club?  How does it work?  And much more...

Please make sure you familiarize yourself with this material.

 What is the purpose of a Rotary e-club?

The purpose of a Rotary e-club is to extend Rotary to business, professional and community leaders in any Rotary District who are unable to meet traditional attendance requirements. Inability to attend a traditional Rotary club could be the result of demanding business or professional commitments, extensive travel, confinement due to ill health or disability, or residence beyond reasonable distance from an existing Rotary club

Bio Sand Filter Initiative- Dominican Republic:
Sustainability Case Study Management Summary

Many corporations embrace compliance to standards of performance in order to build a culture of sustainability through Continuous Process Improvement (CPI). Dr. Omar K. Helferich, a member of the E-Club was the primary project lead for applying the concept of CPI in support of a safe water Dominican Republic project.

Sustainability for the project relates to the design and plan to continue support of recipients’ needs after humanitarian organizations have left a disaster area (sustainable exit strategy).  The Rotary Foundation (2012) defines sustainability as “the capacity for maintaining outcomes over the long term to serve the ongoing need of a community after grant funds have been expended.

What's your Rotary story?

Use story telling to share your favorite Rotary experience with prospective members.

   The ability to inspire other people through our work is one of Rotary's greatest assets.  When we share a story about our experiences, we help to break down barriers, build friendships, and ultimately, attract new members.

   Rotary International President Sakuji Tanaka understands the power of storytelling, and encourages all Rotarians to share their Rotary experience. The new Telling Your Story Resource Kit  can help you create an inspiring message that will attract new members and motivate current Rotarians. (The Rotary E-Club will look, this week July 8-15, at the first three items in the kit as well as the "
The Power of Rotary Moments" video with Rotary International President Sakuji Tanaka at:

Rotary International
President’s Message

We hear the word peace every day.  We hear it in the news, and we talk about it a great deal in Rotary. But most of us spend very little time thinking about what the word really means.

 On its simplest level, peace can be defined by what it is not.  It is a state of no war, no violence, and no fear. It means that you are not in danger of hunger, persecution, suffering, or poverty. But we can also define peace by what it is, and by what it can be. Peace can mean freedom of thought and speech, freedom of opinion and choice, and the ability for self-determination.

Welcome to our Rotary E-Club of District 7250! 


A letter from a Rotarian that makes the point of the tragedy of Hurricane Sandy!

I know people are hurting in the Rockaways [and other places in Long Island and New Jersey], however, I am one Rotarian that was hit extremely hard in Howard Beach. I am the Immediate Past President (IPP) of the Rotary Club of Southwest Queens and have been devastated by the Hurricane.

Not only did I loose one-third of my home and my car (my only means of transportation besides walking) I own and operate a Day Care that has been destroyed as a result of Hurricane Sandy. The day care was submerged under salt water and raw sewage in a matter of minutes. Thank God we were closed at the time (evening) when the surge hit.

I have reached out to the families that have children in my day care and so far everyone seems not to be hurt, although some families lost their cars and parts if not all of their homes, as well as most of their possessions. Now we are all dealing with the aftermath.

Since everything we owned was overcome by the hurricane waters, we lost everything: books, strollers, high chairs, toys, cribs, rugs, swings, changing tables, toddler chairs and tables, cameras, computers, phone, etc. You name it - we lost it! The entire day care has now been gutted to the bare beams.

I honestly do not know if the day care can financially recover from the loss and fear that it won't. Although I feel a sense of obligation to my ten (10) staff members and the twenty-five (25) families in day care and twenty-eight (28) additional families in my pre-school program.

This program has been their only sense of "normal" since so many of the children were displaced during the storm and there is no telling when and if they can ever return to their homes. Two of my own staff members lost everything and are so grateful they have a job to come to (for now).

We need your help!

As a fellow Rotarian, I need your help for the sake of these children!

We all have food and clothing and basic necessities now (thanks to Red Cross and donations from various outlets), but we need assistance in the re-building process; assistance that FEMA and other agencies don't help with. We need to put the pieces back together, to get the place up and running so people can go to work and earn money to re-build their lives.
I am writing this today out of desperation for the children!

Frances O. Scarantino
Immediate Past President
The Rotary Club of Southwest Queens

Message from our Rotary International
President Sakuji Tanaka


When we see a the needs of others as more important than our own needs – when we focus on a shared goal that is for the good of all – this changes everything. It changes how we relate to the world. It changes our priorities. And it changes how we understand the idea of peace.

In the 2012-13 Rotary year, peace will be our focus and our goal, and I will ask all Rotarians to actively work for Peace Through Service.

A belief in the power of service lies at the very heart of Rotary. By making service our priority, we put the needs of others above our own. We empathize more deeply with the difficulties of other people; we become more generous with our time and resources, and more open to new ways of thinking. Instead of trying to change others, we recognize that everyone and everything has something to teach us.

Through service, we become more tolerant of our differences and more grateful for the people in our lives. Our sense of gratitude drives us to understand others better and see the good in everyone. Through better understanding, we learn to respect others. With mutual respect, we live with others in peace.

And so I ask you all to put Peace Through Service at the forefront of your Rotary work this year, and to commit to a Rotary goal of a more peaceful world.

Sakuji Tanaka
Rotary International President 2012-13


Our new RI President is a member of the Rotary Club of Yashio, Saitama, Japan.  He would like to see Rotary "continue its vital work as the force to improve our communities":  To do this work, Rotary needs active, involved clubs, he added.

A past trustee of the Rotary Foundation, Tanaka chaired the 2009 Birmingham Convention Committee.  His other service to Rotary includes RI Director, regional Rotary Foundation coordinator, district governor, and member of the Polio Eradication Advocacy Task Force, the Permanent Fund Committee for Japan, and the Future Vision Committee.  Tanaka established an endowed Rotary Peace Fellowship, and he and his wife, Kyoko, are Paul Harris Fellows, Benefactors of the Permanent Fund and Major Donors.  He is recipient of the RI's Service Above Self and the Rotary Foundation's Distinguished Service Award.

Rotary E-Club of District 7250 Mission to Haiti on June 15, 2012

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for sending the funds!  We delivered $1,400 of the money on this trip to La Feve School along with $10,000 of in-kind aid. Thechildren and teachers were very grateful.  We delivered the next $1,400 on our mission on July 28.

We did have the chance to share our project with the Rotary Club of Delmas near the Airport in Port-au-Prince  and please  see pictures below. 

Our mission was a huge success, and Timmy Thomas and Alana Joy sang at the camp with the children and provided a concert for the children at the orphanage in Mirebelais.   Here is some quick unedited footage from the Concert: http://traveltalkmedia.smugmug.com/Other/Airline-Ambassadors-Tell-Me/23646227_JJpsSq#!i=1914441553&k=QWjwx4J

Again, thank you and all the Rotary E Club members so much for the generous donation!  



Comment from our District Governor Gabor Karsai:
The pictures are wonderful, the film clip is moving!
Congratulations on a successful trip! Thanks for sharing it.
I am particularly excited to see that you hooked up with a local Rotary club!
I hope that this will blossom into a great cooperative relationship between the two clubs for the benefit of the Haitian children.

Message from the Charter President Cornell

It is with great pleasure that I greet you to our web site of the Rotary E-Club of District 7250. Our club is the first Rotary E-Club on Long Island, New York as well as in District 7250 which extends currently from Nassau county to Brooklyn and Queens boroughs of New York City.  The Suffolk and Nassau/Brooklyn/Queens districts are in the process of merging next year. Our members will meet on a regular weekly basis on the web, any time, twenty four hours by seven at the convenience of our members.  Weekly new meeting material will be updated each Sunday mornings.

Our Charter Certificate was signed by District Governor Gabor Karsai on October 19, 2011 with an initial membership of fourth-three.  We thank Governor Gabor for his encouragement, his kindness in recommending to Rotary International the establishment of our Rotary E-Club.  Special thank wishes are also extended  to Immediate Past District Governor Robert Donna for believing in us.

As we stand at this important milestone of our young Rotary E-Club we think about Rotary’s motto “Service Above Self.”  It serves as our primary purpose in providing service to those in need of our humanitarian efforts in our communities and around the world, always promoting goodwill and striving to achieve worthwhile goals while at the same time maintaining high ethical standards.

Finally, we wish to thank our Charter Members for joining the international and wonderful community of Rotary.  Without you this would not have been possible.  It is your commitment to rendering service that will make a difference.  In the words of our Founding Rotary International President Paul Harris: “The Best is Yet to Come.”  


Yours in Rotary Service,

   Cornell Frank, Ph.D.
   Charter President
