Club News
 
Where's Club President Reece Michael Brown?  He's presenting a check from our Club to support Portsmouth Area Arts Council and Children's Theatre at one of their rehearsals for their upcoming production of James and the Giant Peach (Hint- He's wearing the royal blue "Rotarians at Work" tshirt.)
We are off to the races for yet another amazing year!  As I sit back and think about our upcoming events, I can almost feel all of the great memories that have come with them, and think about new ones to come this year. Even though it’s only July, my mind is set on the fish fry.  This year we have the amazing Julie Monroe chairing the committee.  She is off to a great start, and has knocked-off a few pieces of the checklist.  Dave Stone and I will be assisting her to make the event even better than last year.   Over the next few weeks, I encourage each of you to reflect on your times at the Fish Fry.  July will be a fun month for certain, and I look forward to seeing you all soon.  Remember, in August we will only meet for our new luncheon programs on the 2nd and 4th Mondays (14th and 28th). However, we will also meet for our first ever Portsmouth Rotary Evening social on Tuesday August 1st,which will be titled “Pints for Progress” and it will be held at the Portsmouth Brewing Company at 5:30 PM.  All are encouraged to attend.

Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
