This evening our club had the pleasure to hear the Immediate Past President of Rotary International, Barry Rassin, via Skype from his home in the Bahamas.He gave us an update on Polio elimination, including how close Africa is to being declared polio free, the persistent hot spots of Pakistan and Afghanistan, and Rotary's plan to stay focused on polio until one full year after there are no new cases (at which point a planning committee will commence to decide on our next focus). In answer to a question from the floor, Rotary and their partners have collectively spent about 1.7 billion on polio elimination since 1985, with partners including the Gates Foundation committed to staying with it until the end.
He also spoke about the focus of the millennial generation on climate change, how we can involve them in Rotary, as well as how to engage Interact members in planning projects with us instead of simply being volunteers. Club members were pleased to have had the opportunity to hear this inspirational message from someone so involved in the Rotary hierarchy, and discussion afterward gave us some thoughts on how to use what we heard.
Thank you Past President Rassin ! ... See MoreSee Less

“END POLIO NOW" Tulip Garden
Newcastle Rotary Club members, along with Miramichi City Mayor Adam Lordon and members of the community planted Rotary Tulips on October 24, 2019 in an effort to raise awareness, funds, and support to eradicate the vaccine-preventable disease. 100 tulips alone were planted at the Ritchie Wharf Park so that in 2020 we can celebrate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations in this manner.
Thirty-five years ago, Rotary began a campaign to eliminate polio from the globe, when polio was endemic in several continents with hundreds of thousands of cases each year. Over this period Rotary has raised 3.6 billion dollars to progress the campaign. ... See MoreSee Less

I Am Rotary - Elizabeth Kelly
A new Rotarian to our club, Elizabeth recently did her classification talk as a Rental Manager. Born in Nordin, she was the only girl among three siblings, continuing her education to a 1978 MVHS graduation. That summer she met Terry Kelly, who she married six months later and joined him in The Pas, Manitoba as he started work at the local mill. For the next few decades they moved to various western communities with Terry's work, while Elizabeth took on a variety of administrative jobs in the education and petroleum industries. In 2011, they started their planned homeward move, purchasing Miramichi properties for a Commercial and Residential Rental Business, making the move in 2013. Near the end of 2014, Terry became ill and passed quickly in early 2015, leaving a large hole in her life which friends attempted to fill by having her come with them for a month to Cambodia to build Habitats for Humanity, teaching and other tasks. Climbing out of the black hole of grief was difficult, but she was able to do it while managing and expanding her business (including the construction of a new 5 plex in Doaktown). A desire to be more involved in the community and to meet more people lead to a phone call to Rotarian Michael Mersereau. She asked to attend a meeting as a guest, having been a Rotarian while in Red Deer AB. This has culminated in her becoming a Newcastle member earlier this fall, where she has dived right in on activities like the Purse Auction. Welcome to the club Elizabeth. ... See MoreSee Less
