Rotary International President Holger Knaack's July 2020 Newsletter

In Holger Knaack's July 2020 Newsletter, it is all about "Rotary Opens Opportunities". Holger says, "Rotary is not just a club that you join; it is an invitation to endless opportunities". He talks about the COVID-19 crisis that has forced all of us to adapt and Rotary's new Action Plan that specifically calls on us to improve our ability to adapt. Our challenge, not just in the next year but into the future is up to us to remake Rotary for these new times — to wholeheartedly embrace the ideas, energy, and commitment of young people eager to find an outlet for idealism and become an organization fully enmeshed in the digital age. He says, "The world needs Rotary now more than ever. It is up to us to make sure that Rotary Opens Opportunities for generations to come." .......

Let's Meet Holger Knaack 

Holger Knaack, a member of the Rotary Club of Herzogtum Lauenburg-Mölln, Germany, is our new president of Rotary International in 2020-21. To build a stronger membership, Holger Knaack says Rotary must focus on increasing the number of female members and transitioning Rotaractors into Rotarians. Knaack believes that the People of Action campaign offers new public awareness possibilities for Rotary. “This campaign conveys our global image while still respecting differences in regions and cultures,” he says.......


The July 2020 Message from K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran,  Chair of the Trustees of The Rotary Foundation

In his July 2020 message to Rotarians, K.R. Ravi Ravindran, Chair of the Trustees of The Rotary Foundation, (and also Past President of Rotary International), tells us that nature is immensely complex and that it is impossible to tell whether anything that happens is good or bad, because you never know what the consequences will be. Ravi says, "All we can know is that with every action and reaction, there is an opportunity — a chance to live our values, express our desires, and take action to make the world a bit closer to the way we want it to be." Ravi adds that The Rotary Foundation is our conduit to make those meaningful changes and through the Foundation, we can do our part to help rid the world of polio and we can help support important COVID-19 projects and prepare the world for the massive vaccination effort that will be needed soon. He says that it is up to you and me if this is to be Rotary’s great moment to become an even stronger organization in the 21st century .........

A Mill for Bill Campaign to Raise $ 1 Million for The Rotary Foundation - Getting Even Closer to our Goal - And Rising

Rotary District 7070  “A Mill for Bill” Campaign

The late Past District Governor Bill Patchett had an unrealized goal for our District.  Bill wanted us to just once raise a $1,000,000 for The Rotary Foundation.  During a conversation with PDG Lynda Ryder at the RI Convention in Hamburg last June, ‘A Mill for Bill’ campaign was created.

The latest figure is $960,000 USD and rising. 

Thank you at all District Rotarians who gave ‘a little bit more for Bill’.


The Rotary Club of Toronto has just given us $10,000.  A huge thank you to the Club!

Our total to date translates into $1,350,000 CDN, the most ever raised by District 7070.  What a wonderful tribute to Bill.

Thank you to everyone who has supported The Rotary Foundation in memory of Bill.  If you haven’t made a donation, it’s not too late.  

You can still send a cheque (personal or club) to The Rotary Foundation Canada.  The cheque must be postmarked June 30 2020 and be received by 8 July 2020 to be counted in the campaign.  The address is:

The Rotary Foundation (Canada)

District & Global Grant News for July 2020

District Grants 2019-20 & 2020-21:

COVID 19 Grant applications

D7070 received 42 applications for COVID 19 projects.  In one project, two Clubs – Quinte Sunrise and Wellington – joined forces.  This means that three of four Clubs in D7070 participated.  This is a new record for Club participation in the District Grant process.

Ten of the 42 projects have already received their grant cheques for a total of $12,000.  These grants were taken from funds D7070 had left in the 2019-20 District Grant budget.  Instead of returning the surplus back to our DDF account at the Rotary Foundation, we requested to use them for these ten projects.......

2020-21 Rotary Foundation Grants Information and Qualification Material NOW On-line

The Rotary Foundation requires Clubs, that want to apply for District or Global Grants to projects, must be qualified.  A Rotary Club is qualified once it has done the following

- have at least two of its members successfully complete the training provided by the District, and

- have its President and President Elect submit to the District a signed copy of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)

The qualification is valid for one year.  It makes the whole Club qualified and responsible, not just the two members that complete the qualification process. Once again, District 7070 is using on-line training for the qualification process.  Three modules (The Rotary Foundation, Global Grants and District Grants) can be found under the Rotary Foundation tab on the District's website,  Quizzes, each consisting of nine questions, are connected with the modules.  Seven of the nine questions must be correctly answered to pass each quiz.  Once a Rotarian has successfully completed all three Quizzes, s/he is qualified and will count towards the Club's Qualification.....

The Latest Weekly News on Polio Eradication

Follow the latest news on Rotary's efforts to eradicate polio, every week. Here is a link to the latest cases. See the country-specific section and more details, right here at

Canada Announces New Commitment to Support Polio Eradication

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to recognize the power of vaccines and immunizations, which save millions of lives each year. The Canadian government has announced a four-year financial commitment to support the endgame strategy of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI). Rotary clubs throughout Canada welcomed the new pledge as a continuation of the country’s leadership and partnership to support polio eradication. Canadian Rotary clubs have worked closely with the Canadian government since 1986, when the country became a donor in the fight to end polio. Since then, Canadian Rotarians have contributed more than US$41.3 million to PolioPlus. Learn more.

The "Plus" in PolioPlus

With decades of experience stopping polio outbreaks, Rotary and our partners have a critical role to play in protecting communities from the COVID-19 pandemic, just as the we did with Ebola, yellow fever, and avian flu. From Pakistan to Nigeria, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative is supporting governments in their COVID-19 response efforts. This truly represents the “plus” in PolioPlus. Learn more about the foundations of the polio infrastructure. 

New End Polio Now Educational and Fundraising Resources 

With the challenges of COVID-19, there’s a significant risk that many children will miss out on lifesaving vaccines that prevent dangerous diseases, including polio. The most important thing that Rotary members can do is sustain our fundraising efforts in the fight to end polio. Download new End Polio Now educational and fundraising resources — including videos, social media messages, event materials, and more — to help spread the word about the need to end polio for good.

New Version of Club Visioning Adjusts to the New Normal

Dear fellow Rotarians in District 7070, 

Over the last ten or so years, many District 7070 Clubs have used Club Visioning to review their operations and future plans.  Some Clubs have held Club Visioning sessions on a regular basis.  We are using a format that we share with more than 100 districts around the world.  However, for the last few years the activity has dropped, both in D7070 and other districts.

A couple of months ago, this downward trend resulted in Past District Governor Steve Wilcox, who once designed the program, to ask a few facilitators to be part of a committee reviewing and up-dating the program.  As I assisted him to introduce Club Visioning in Sweden and Scandinavia, he invited me to be part of the committee....
