Coconut Plantation in Cambodia

The San Marino Rotary Club has supported and continues to support an aquaponics project at the village of Sen Sok near the central city of Siem Reap in Cambodia. A summary of this project is in the works. Over the last 12 months an additional short term project has been added near the Sras Srang village in the Siem Reap district. Both projects were viewed during a trip to Cambodia early in January of this year for Rotary members belonging to the International Projects Committee. Jean-Pierre and Andrew Kindler were the committee members participating.

The coconut plantation is a cash crop designed to fund a small portion of ODA operating costs. ODA (Opportunities for Development through Art) is an (Cambodian) NGO comprising eight English Schools. These schools, were initially intended to teach art as a usable skill to compete in a limited job market. English was added, for its potential to provide employment in the tourist trade. By empowering students to acquire employment, the standard of living of the student, his/her family, and their respective villages are improved. The coconut plantation is in the “backyard” of the #7 English school. It has its own irrigation and water storage system. The first coconut crop should be available for harvest in 3-5 years.

FOUR WAY TEST SPEECH CONTEST

The Four Way Speech Contest took place at the San Marino Rotary Club. Our winner Lisa Lu, from San Marino High School will move onto the next level. Runner up speakers were Enzo Repetto, Kaia Sherif, and Brennon Valdez. Contestants addressed the topic “Rotary Connects the World” and subjected that topic to the “Four Way Test” as a major component of the speech. The speech was judged based on four criteria. These are: 1. Speaker personal quality, 2. Organization, 3. Presentation, and 4. Effectiveness.
The four students spoke with conviction and educated our Rotary on a number of topics.

Rotary International President Herbert J. Taylor initially developed the “Four Way Test” in 1932 when asked to take charge of an aluminum cookware company that was bankrupt. It was intended as a guide for the behavior of employees. It was such a successful organizing and sales tool the company was saved and his test became a standard for defining business ethics. The “Four Way Test” has been quoted and printed around the world. It consists of the following: 1. Is it the truth?, 2. Is it fair to all concerned?, 3. Will it build good will and better relationships?, and 4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

This contest is intended to benefit high school age youth (grades 9-12) and acquaint them with Rotary and the “Four Way Test”, demonstrate and enhance Rotary’s commitment to youth, heighten awareness of Rotary in the community, recognize and, encourage hard work and accomplishment among youth.

Rotary Club of San Marino

"As storytellers, story listeners, peacebuilders, activists, artists, veterans, funders, teachers, journalists, we’re all in this together; we all want to build a better world. The place to start is in the moments we create together. Stories aren’t just records of the past, or the events of the day. We also want to build stories for generations come along much later, perhaps far beyond our own lifetimes. May we all find peace, or at least moments of peace, in 2020." Kirandeep Sirah (Duke-UNC 2011-13).

Rotary Club of San Marino

The Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee float won the “Hope Connects the World” Tournament Volunteer Award for most outstanding floral presentation of the Rose Parade Theme among floats 35 feet and under in length
The theme of the float was “Hope Connects the World”. It showed how Rotary’s projects and its international membership bring hope, strength and service to the world. Through its relationship with organizations and non-Rotarians, they connect to make projects successful. This is exemplified by the Rotary connection with Optimist International. The President of Optimist International rode on the float with the Rotary International President. Hope springs from optimism and hope gives the willpower to press on in the face of adversity, with knowledge that when we work together, we have the power to succeed. The Penguin, adorned with a scarf displaying flags countries around the world, is embarking on a journey of -service, helped along by her flight crew. Together they showed how cooperation with organizations such as Optimists, increases the power of Rotary’s efforts—delivering Rotary’s message of Hope and showing how “Hope Connects the World.” Over 41,000 flowers cover Rotary’s 41st Rose Parade float.
