Rotary Weekly Reporter: August 12, 2021

The History Committee of the Rotary Club of Wilmington has set a goal of embracing the Club’s history and that includes the history of the club and its context in the city and the region. The Fellowship Committee has joined this effort and will offer a chance to take in some history this Thursday, August 12, we’ll forgo our usual meeting for a walking tour of Market Street.

Please join the Delaware Historical Society for a walking tour of Market Street—consider it a stroll of a meeting. We’ll convene at the Hotel duPont side of Rodney Square at Noon. We’ll walk for 60-75 minutes down the heart of the commercial district exploring its social and architectural history and current efforts to preserve and activate historic buildings on the street. We’ll end at the Delaware Historical Society, where restrooms are available.

Rotary Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update #1

Dear Rotarians,

Everywhere you go you hear about COVID-19. Your Club and District have been listening and discussing ongoing situations in our district 7630, which spans across Delaware and the Maryland Eastern Shore. I am recommending as your Club President and on behalf of our District Governor Bill Ferguson to cancel all-district club meetings and events until Sunday, March 29, 2020. I would recommend being cautious and be mindful of all situations or circumstances.

Our District Governor and I will continue to monitor the situation and will issue another directive the week of March 27th.

Promote safe preventive actions:

  • Frequently wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap not available use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or use inside of your elbow
  • Clean frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Stay home when sick

Yours In Rotary Service,

Lisa Detwiler

The Art of Thinking

My mission here today is nothing less than to convince you to begin to reconceive the ways in which you think, particularly about the foundation of our culture. All our aspirations and presumptions are predicated on the notion of education, of our imbuing generations of students with the knowledge and values that will allow them to succeed in later life. But how often havewe challenged ourselves to ask whether those concepts of knowledge, success and values have stayed current and relevant?

The following was prepared in 2015 when I was an Immediate Past District Governor at the request of a friend from Madras/Chennai, India. A Past RI Director of Rotary International and a very successful business executive, he was preparing a book of compiled Rotary Moments reflecting experiences of Rotarians from around the world who had belonged to clubs from different societal areas and cultures.
