Published

on

The Rotary District 7570 Group Study Exchange Team has returned home after visiting the countries of Trinidad & Tobago, Martinique, Suriname, and Guyana from March 31, 2018-May 2, 2018.  View this WHAT MATTERS Warren video slideshow of Team Leader, Paula Knoll Alston and members Doug Sexton (of Warren County), Jessica Maria Arrington, Tyler Conley, Zachary Smith and hear them chat with FR Rotarian George McIntyre after he treated them to a “welcome home” lunch at the Apple House last week.  You can see more of their adventures on their Facebook group page “GSE Team Rotary District 7570 to District 7030.” The four team members were chosen among dozens of applicants through an intensive interview process and have been meeting for many months in preparation for the trip.  Doug Sexton, who is head of GIS for the County of Warren, represented the Front Royal Rotary Club in the exchange. Check out the map he created that showcases the districts.

District 7030 is home of some of the world’s most diverse and vibrant Rotary Clubs in the Southern Caribbean. With over 2,000 Rotarians in 70 Clubs in 14 Counties, District 7030 covers a diverse geography and encompasses a variety of cultures and languages – Here’s the link to their Facebook page.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM *

The Group Study Exchange (GSE) program is a unique cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for young business and professional men and women in their initial years of professional life. Rotary districts in different countries are paired to send and receive professional study groups of four to six non-Rotarian team members and one Rotarian team leader to travel for four to six weeks, staying in the homes of Rotarians when possible.

Launched in 1965, this dynamic program has built a successful track record at the personal, community, and international level. With good planning, a goal-driven itinerary, and active participation of dedicated Rotarians, a GSE can be an exceptional educational experience for both the visiting GSE team and local Rotarians.

Goals and Objectives

The GSE program is designed to develop professional and leadership skills among young adults, so that they can address the needs of their communities and an increasingly global workplace. GSE participants follow an extensive and rigorous program of international travel and team activities.

  • Vocational visits

— Provide opportunities to observe vocations as practiced in another country

— Impact team members’ long-term careers through exchange of ideas in their respective fields

  • Cultural experiences

— Allow participants to study another country and its people, language, and institutions through experiences in an organized and meaningful host program

— Promote an appreciation of cultural diversity worldwide

  • Fellowship opportunities

— Encourage team members and hosts to meet, communicate, and live with each other in a spirit of fellowship and goodwill

— Consider each other’s problems, aspirations, and community concerns

— Foster lasting friendships and international understanding

  • Rotarian involvement

— Offers Rotarians specific, practical, and meaningful opportunities for international service by providing young, formative professionals a different perspective of their vocation in another country and culture

Published

on

WHAT MATTERS Warren Invitation:

In this video, George McIntyre, Craig Laird and Beth Medved Waller discuss an opportunity to gather to continue the process of overcoming the current state of turmoil in our community. On Thursday, June 27, from 11:30am to 1pm, The Front Royal Independent Business Alliance will host a free screening that will be the first in a series of videos. The first video is “Idea Friendly: How to Make Your Town Open to New Ideas” featuring Becky McCray and Deb Brown from SaveYour.Town, and it will be held at the WHAT MATTERS Community Meeting Space, Open House: Meet in the Middle (213 E. Main St. & adjacent to the Daily Grind Coffee Shop). McCray and Brown will talk about the process for making your ideas work in town.

“Too often, pessimists shoot down your ideas. But you have great ideas, a vision of what your town could be. How do you start making things happen? Learn the practical steps you can take to change attitudes, draw a crowd of supporters, improve the environment and create more connections, no matter what the pessimists say or do,” said McCray.

This event is designed to show our community new ways to get things done. There is no charge to attend this screening and a lively discussion is planned to follow. The Apple House will provide brown bag lunches for $5 and complimentary coffee/tea/water is available at Open House. The gathering will begin at 11:30am and video will start promptly at noon. “Together we’ll work through the process to make your town more Idea Friendly. We’ll show you how to Gather Your Crowd, Make Connections and Take Small Steps. It all adds up to creating the kind of town you want to live in,” said Brown.

Learn more about Brown and McCray online.

Also, please mark your calendars for Friday, July 12th from 6-7pm for the next “Conversation of Hope” sponsored by WHAT MATTERS. At the first “Conversation,” dozens of community members gathered to share positive comments about moving forward and embracing the good qualities, people and vitality that Warren County has to offer.

WHAT MATTERS Warren
Dr. Frederick and Dr. Daisy Broadhead of Front Royal Dental Care were able to get Warren County kids and local area schools excited about oral health in a big way. In honor of National Children’s Dental Health Month, the dentists held an art contest to encourage the importance of dental hygiene. The response was overwhelming with nearly 400 entries!

Front Royal Dental Care selected three winners from the following categories: K-1, grades 2-3 and grades 4-5. Front Royal Christian School, A.S. Rhodes and Ressie Jeffries were lucky to have the winning students. The selected students won a prize bag with a $50 gift card, children’s Sonicare electric toothbrush, dental travel kit, and a book.

A.S. Rhodes Elementary and Mountain Laurel Montessori School were awarded each a $1,000 donation for having the most participation by a public and private school.

Dr. Frederick Broadhead visited each of the schools to congratulate and present their donations. Mountain Laurel students were particularly excited to hear that they won a $1,000 for their school. The Directors of the school announced that the money will be put to good use as seed money to purchase additional property to expand their facilities.

Beth Medved Waller joins Rotary International and visits Rotary Clubs and service projects in Uganda

Published

on

Beth Medved Waller, President Elect of the newly chartered Rotary Club of the Northern Shenandoah Valley, “The Area ONE|ders” has just returned from Uganda, a country she has visited 7 times since December 2017 as an individual trying to make a difference but lacking the connections to maximize her efforts. Rotary now binds her with the power of 1.2 million+ like-minded members to collaborate with on projects in Africa, in Virginia and around the world. Rotarians stand united in their vision that “Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.”

This trip was Waller’s first trip to Uganda as a Rotarian.  Though she only has been a member of the service organization for approximately one month, her trip to Africa with District 7570 Governor George Karnes (of the Warren County Rotary Club) enabled her to have already accumulated years worth of unforgettable Rotarian experiences. She was embraced beyond belief at meetings of The Rotary Club of Kampala Metropolitan and the Rotary Club of Mengo and met members from more than 20 clubs throughout the trip.  During two meetings, she was invited to speak about her work with the Ugandan based non-profit she has partnered with since 2017, Light up Life Foundations. Additionally, the Warren County Rotarians attended a presentation by members of the Rotary Club of Kampala North at the development site of the future Sam Owori Rotary Vijana POA Village. The village is a vocational campus being constructed to train the next generation of Ugandans in green energy, computer technology, agriculture, plumbing, electrical skills and more.

Waller and Karnes were also blessed to be able to attend the March 31st kickoff of the enormous “Sam F. Owori Memorial Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project” in Tororo. The late Sam Owori (of the Rotary Club of Kampala) was an internationally renowned Rotarian who was to be Rotary International President this year (prior to his unexpected tragic death).  When construction is complete, nearly 20,000 Ugandans will have a safe solar-powered municipal drinking water system and hygienic sanitation facilities. In addition, through the project nearly 40 individuals have been extensively trained to install micro-flush sanitation systems. “Benefits of the Micro-flush toilet are no smell, flies or mosquitoes.  You build it once instead of every 2 years. The Micro-flush toilet is cheaper and better than a pit latrine,” according to Walter Hughes who was also on the ground in Uganda representing District 7570. Internationally beloved Rotarian Hughes spent time sharing with Beth helpful insight from his vast experience with dozens of successful service projects all over Africa. In March, Waller’s nonprofit, WHAT MATTERS, funded a pit latrine at the school she and Light up Life Foundation constructed in the remote village of Bunyade. Had she had Hughes advice along with the power of Rotarian wisdom behind her then, she would have instead installed a more affordable and more environmentally sound micro-flush system.

As a part of the Owori Memorial Grant, one such toilet system has been installed adjacent to a maternity ward  (where 50 children per month are brought into this world).  A 1000 liter water tank will also be brought to the birthing facility that currently turns away women if they are not able to provide 200 liters of water prior to admission. When visiting the less than ideal medical facility, Waller noted a tattered paper sign taped to the wall that shares the Tororo District’s vision, “To have a healthy, productive and prosperous people living in a clean environment within 10 years.” The community is now many steps closer to fulfilling that dream thanks to Rotary International.


District Governor Karnes was the lead for the Tororo Owori Memorial Grant, a project which united the entire organization and nearly every continent in the world by raising more than $228,000. George and Rotarian James Serugo (of the Rotary Club of Kampala) worked tirelessly on this project that was identified in 2016 and has involved more than 48 Rotary Districts across the world (and over 60 clubs), ranking as the largest singular international grant to date.

Norah Owori, in her comments at the kickoff ceremony in Merekit on Sunday, March 31st, eloquently shared, “I’m very grateful for the Rotarians from around the world because they have given the people of Merekit a new relief of life. I’m especially grateful to DG George (Karnes) and Rotarian (Walter Hughes).This project was promised to my late husband by his Rotary friends when he was elevated to Rotary International President Elect. The fact that you worked so hard and made this project a reality even after Sam has passed on is a great testimony to Rotary’s service to humanity.”  Waller and Karnes were kindly included in a lovely intimate breakfast and a community lunch hosted by Mrs. Owori at her home. They were also fortunate to have been able to pay their respects at the graveside of Sam Owori and attended a beautiful service at the Owori family church.

Waller met countless friendly and inspirational Rotarians and was hosted in the home of esteemed Rotarian Sarah Odongo, of the Rotary Club of Kampala, who has pledged to be a mentor in Beth’s Rotarian work as Sarah has served in many Ugandan and Rotary International leadership capacities.  Rotarian Emmanuel Sabiti of the Rotary Club of Bunga, has kindly offered to help Beth find Light up Life Foundations a new location for the Maisha Home for Children (since they were forced to vacate their prior rental). Many other kind Rotarians have expressed an interest in working with Beth and her club in future projects.

This trip was neither Waller’s nor Karne’s first experience as the beneficiaries of Ugandan hospitality and friendship.  This visit was DG George Karne’s third trip to Merekit, the community that will benefit from the Owori Memorial Grant.  Waller was shocked when she first learned that another local citizen frequented Uganda and of Rotary’s remarkable service in what has become her “home away from home” country.  Prior to this trip, which was their first time in Africa together, she heard DG George speak of the Owori project and recorded his presentation about it at the Rotary District 7570 Conference in April.  Tears streamed down her face in anticipation of their upcoming trip as she listened to Karnes describe the project.  But even at that time she never dreamed their trip would be as heartwarming and life-changing to her as it was.  She most definitely concurs with George’s words in that presentation when he shared, “Rotary has changed my life. Having the ability to do something like this project has made a huge difference in me. Rotary makes you a better mother, a better father, a better employee or employer. It makes you a better member of your community…Rotary helps us become the people we were meant to be.”

Upon return to Virginia, Beth shared with fellow members of her club, “I feel as if we have truly become a part of a new international family of like-minded humanitarians.  I’m looking forward to being able to make more of an impact in Uganda as a Rotarian and will be immediately working to identify a partner club in the Kampala area to start developing a Rotary International Grant to benefit the children I have grown to love there. The friendly Rotarian welcome I received in Uganda has also inspired me to help to coordinate a Friendship Exchange between District 7570 and District 9211 in the near future.”  James Serugo (of the Rotary Club of Kampala) says of the Friendship Exchange Program, “Rotarians from one district visit Rotarians in another district to become friends and extend service through friendship to their communities.” Waller hopes that Rotarians and non-Rotarians alike interested in working her on Ugandan projects, or joining her on a future trip to Africa, will reach out to her through her Facebook page, Beth Medved Waller or beth@whatmattersw2.com.
