Good News from Nigeria. #endpolionow
One more down, two to go. As of July 24, Nigeria has completed one entire year without any cases of polio.  Not one child afflicted with this crippling disease.  And you did it. Our members deserve to hear about this success, and to hear a heartfelt thank you for their support.   

There are a couple of notes attached from the foundation, if you want more information you are encouraged to google "polio plus", or surf the Rotary.org website.  But please inform our clubs and our members of this success.

Nigeria still has to remain vigilant, but the toughest year has passed.  Now, let us focus on those remaining countries of Afghanistan and Pakistan.   We will eradicate this disease, we will deliver this gift to the world.   And with your continued support, we may look back on 2015 as the year we recorded the last case of polio in the world.  Ever.  Imagine that, and smile just a little bit.

FATHER'S DAY IN CANADA - JUNE 16
Father's Day in Canada
 
Father's Day is celebrated with lot of enthusiasm and fanfare.
Dad's are important!

Fathers Day in Canada is also celebrated on third Sunday of June.
people in Canada  wear roses to express gratitude for their fathers.

Traditionally, if the person is wearing a red rose, it symbolizes the person's father is alive.
Likewise, a white rose means that the person's father is no more.

Children in Canada express affection and honor for their dads by presenting them cards,
flowers, and chocolates. In modern times, several other gifts of love including neckties, shirts,
electronic gadgets, stationery items .

Another noticeable trend about Fathers Day celebration in Canada
is that apart from their biological father people wish “Happy Father's Day”
to their grandfathers, stepfathers, foster father, uncles or
any other man who is as affectionate and loving towards them as a father.

Dining out with family is another popular Fathers Day tradition in Canada.
No wonder, restaurants and eating places witness a rush on the occasion.

Of course Dad's get to choose the spot but it must be "out".
Moms get the day off too!

CLUB ASSEMBLY
MEMBER: COMMENT
President Nalaka: Chaired & opened our General Member Discussion
                               by saying
                               "Let's first address membership and retention
                                and then fund raising. Comments welcome:"
ALAN: Although we have four new members, two cannot attend
           due to changes in their employment conditions.
NALAKA: We have no new members here to-day. We need to
            involve them more.
PATRICIA: Members are required to inform me as  secretary
                  of the reasons for their absences and location
                  and dates of their make-ups, or we cannot credit
                  them with meeting attendance requirements.
                  Those travelling might well be doing make-ups??
ALAN: Let's start July 1st with any changes we need.
ROLF: It is very difficult to inform you before of travel plans,
                changes which may well be last minute. 
                 ( editor - But we could inform you after)
JOE: Recruitment this year needs to be credited to many
              members. We can all be involved. We have many forms:
               Full Membership, Associate Membership, other ideas
                for other forms are welcome. Retention is also needed. 
BRENDA: If we sponsor a member we should keep contact,
                invite them to drive to events with us, call to see if
                they are well when they miss a meeting, be-friend
                them beyond meeting time.Acquaintanceship was the
                original reason for Paul Harris forming Rotary and
                remains the best part!
LOUIS: We can all do that1 Just phone and say a friendly
             "How are you? Where are you? We miss you?"
LOBNA: Both involvement and communication are needed
              for retention!
JOE: We could have a telephone committee
         (editor especially before an event)
PATRICA: Doing make-ups at other clubs is a great way
            to understand Rotary and meet new members
DESH: Spread the duties.The Board is overloaded.
           Others need to pitch in.
ADEL: Sometimes we just need to ask/invite others
           to lend a hand. They may be unaware of need.
BRENDA: We are tough on ourselves! AS a small club
           we are trying to be a big club. We had better
           than 70% attendance at our last fund raiser
           We are one of just over 20 clubs in our
           District to qualify for the President's Citation
           We were able to match the challenge for
            PolioPlus (with treasurer Alan's great direction!).
            We have Nalaka, Tim, and Ali in line for
            Presidents. Let gloat!

 
              
 
 
  IN SUMMARY
 
1. We all can play a part in membership and retention
    Bring a friend to Rotary next week and
    make a friendly call to a member 
    who was not at Rotary to-day!
 
2. Joe will send me his fund raising ideas and I shall
    put them in the Bulletin for all to consider.

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing in the world is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent..."

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
 
The good things in life come to us in a mixture.
Be sure to include WHOLE PINEAPPLE in your diet!
The whole fruit gives you everything nutritionally.
Juice alone doesn't.
Avoid the waste/waist
of smoothies and juices.
Eat the fruit!
The pineapple is a member of the bromeliad family.
It is extremely rare that bromeliads produce edible fruit.
The pineapple is the only known edible bromeliad.

Pineapples stop ripening the minute they are picked.
No special way of storing them will help ripen them further.
Colour is relatively unimportant in determining ripeness.

Store cut-up pineapple in the refrigerator.
But, to taste it fully leave it at room temperature
at least one hour before eating.

Choose your pineapple by smell.
If it smells fresh, tropical, and sweet, it will be a good fruit.

The more scales on the pineapple, the sweeter and juicier the taste.

After you cut off the top, you can plant the top.
In canada that means just set it on top of sandy soil,
in a pot, indoors.
Pineapple is high in vitamin C, fiber, manganese, bromelain
and many other ingrediends when the fruit (not just juice)
is eaten.

Pineapple is high in manganese,
a mineral that is critical to development
of strong bones and connective tissue.
It works along with calcium and protein.

Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme,
is the key to pineapple's digestive value.

Proteolytic means "breaks down protein",
which is why pineapple is known to be a digestive aid.
It helps the gut to digest proteins more efficiently.
(Don’t use pineapple in jellies,
it breaks the gelatine proteins un-gelling it.)

Oranges are a popular because they are high in Vitamin C.
Fresh pineapple is not only high in vitamin C,
but because of the Bromelain,
it has the ability to reduce mucous in the throat.
If you have a cold with a mucus producing cough,
add pineapple to your diet.

It is commonly used in Europe
as a post-operative measure to cut mucous
after certain sinus and throat operations.

It's also good for a healthier mouth.
It discourages plaque growth.

Drink a mouth full of water after
because like most fruit it has acids which
if left in contact with your tooth enamel,
can soften the enamel.
(It is also wise to drink a little water after coffee, tea, wine …
and most other drinks and food.)

JAY'S THOUGHTS
 
 
Q: What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?


A: The North American landmark that is constantly moving backward is 
    Niagara Falls.
 
   The rim is worn down about two and a half feet each year
    because of the millions of gallons of water that rushover it every minute!

PAST PRESIDENT GARRY KLASSEN - REALESTATE
Joe Berlettano introduced  Garry Klassen, President of our Club in 2001-02.
Garry spoke to us about his career in Realty which he commenced in 1973.
He would like to scale-back and then retire but it is difficult to turn away business.
Garry said that the market values go up when there are more buyers than sellers,
and vice-versa.
He said it is important for realtors to think outside the box, and took us through an exercise
that the young do best because they have not been programmed yet.
He said that what the customers want is not always available and it is important to show them
how what is available can also fill their needs.
Political uncertainty hurts the market. There is also a yearly cycle:
with early spring and early fall of the year being times of market rise in the Toronto area,
whereas the other times of year see a down-turn in the market.
 
First time buyers (those who have not owned a home for five years) can get help from Ottawa
and may even purchase with no downpayment,
however the safest way to purchase a home is to save a downpayment and purchase within one's means.
Garry opened up for questions, and there were many.
Nalaka thanked Garry for a very interesting talk and invited him to join us often for lunch.
(We were delighted to have Garry's wife Ann with us too. She is also a successful realtor
with just two years fewer experience than Garry.)

THE LAST LAUGH

An old woman is riding the elevator in a very lavish New York City Office Building.
A young and beautiful woman gets into the elevator and
smelling like expensive perfume turns to the old woman
and says arrogantly, "Giorgio - Beverly Hills, $100 an ounce!"
The next young and beautiful woman gets on the elevator
and also very arrogantly turns to the old woman and says,
"Chanel No. 5,    $150 an ounce!"
About three floors later, the old woman has reached her destination
and is about to get off the elevator.
Before she leaves, she looks both beautiful women in the eyes,
and lets out a most foul-smelling odour.
She leaves the stunned women in a cloud of funk, saying "Cauliflower - 49 cents a pound."

Premature Neonate Ventilator

Dear All Rotarians,
 
I am sending to you some photos during my visit to Dar Ismail Hospital to see the Premature Neonate Ventilator. My photo is with Dr. Yossri Noweam, Director of the hospital. Dr. Gamel Khalifa,Director of the Premature Neonate ICU & our PP Dr. Mohamed El Banna.
I am so happy to know from Dr. Khalifa that one ventilator could save around 15 cases every month.  It depends on how long the premature neonate is using the Ventilator.  Most of the Premature Neonates use the Ventilator for at least 6 to 7 days. 
God Bless all of you.
 
Best Regards.

Harry Stinson

Harry Stinson is sometimes referred to as the Donald Trump of Toronto.  Usually entrepreneurs are stressed, however Harry is not.  He doesn't wear a watch and doesn't use a cell phone.  He lives in Hamilton with his family.
 
In his early years Harry was a restaurateur.  he owned the Groaning Board Restaurant which was Toronto’s first non smoking and healthy food restaurant.  It was packed with patrons from the day it opened.  He also owned The Mad Hatters Tea Party restaurant, specializing in children's parties.  His vision was to have the children, where no parents were allowed and where they could have a wonderful time.
        
He even had a hearse painted red which would pick up the children to take them to the party, he says it was wonderful.
 He had an interest in this restaurant for about 20 years.  In the 1980's he was a Real Estate Broker because he was always interested in buildings. As a realtor he specialized in condo's , he became a dominant condo broker.
 He found that there were clients with considerable money who wanted a downtown location and no condos available.
His first conversion to lofts was the Candy Factory warehouse which covered a city block.

He was born and raised in monteray Mexico near the mountains. 
There were no roads or cars and no ameneties or luxuries. 
There was a dirt road and when the first phone was installed it was the only one in town. 
Notwithstanding his poverty, according to our standards he was considered himself lucky and happy. 
He wore the same clothes for days and he learned that to he happy. 
"To be happy is to be." 
He tries to continue to live by that motto that all he needs is to be.
As a businessman he wants nice stuff and that's ok
as long as it doesn't blur his vision of happiness. 
He was never a fighter and in school he was considered a chicken. 
He depended on two of his friends to guard and rescue him
that is until he got a scholarship and his father moved the family 
so that he could take advantage of the scholarship.

The Last Laugh

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A man 
wrote a letter
to the IRS:

 

"I have been unable to sleep
knowing that I have cheated
on my income tax.

I understated my taxable income 
and have enclosed a cheque
for $200.00.

If I still can't sleep
I shall send the rest
