Happy Monday!

Please join us for a wonderful presentation from 
Roger Breisch
Neil Postman once said, “Children are the living messages we send to a future we will not see.” Today, our youth are suffering from depression, anxiety, and suicide ideation at unprecedented rates, and, for the first time in human history, we have separated our youth from the elders and wisdom keepers of the culture. Can reconnecting youth with elders be a partial solution?

Having spent more than 4000 hours answering calls on a suicide hotline and thousands of hours working with teens in an anti-drug, anti-alcohol program, Roger Breisch has learned a great deal about the challenges and miracles that comprise much of the human journey. Roger has shared his insights with cross the country.

Roger has lived an eclectic life. He holds a Master of Science in Mathematics from Northern Illinois University and a Master of Science in Management from the Sloan School at MIT. During his career he taught high school, was a manager for a Fortune100 company, owned a management consulting company, and, most recently, ran the local Chamber of Commerce. During his professional career, Roger has volunteered extensively. He chaired the local 4th ofJuly Fireworks for 17 years, works with teens in an anti-alcohol, anti-drug program, and spent more than 4000 hours answering calls on the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline over that past 20 years.
Roger speaks and writes extensively. He has spoken at TEDxIIT, TEDxQuincy, and TEDxQuincyStudio. He published two books: “Questions That Matter,” and “Humanity’s Journey Home.” Today, Roger focuses on helping others discover a “Life That Matters.” He and Judi, his wife of 40 years, have two grown children and live in Batavia, Illinois.

New Year's Resolution or Goals?

We are 37 days into the new year and I have forgotten all about my resolutions for the new year. Many people set “goals" for the new year instead of resolutions. When you set a SMART goal you are setting a  goal that is specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound; that has a high probability for accomplishment. A few of our members have shared their goals below. Take a look and think about your own goals. 
Take the time to create long and short term SMART goals! 
My overall intention is to declutter my life and home of objects and activities that do not serve me. In an opposing view, my intention is also to embrace the chaos! I like things neat and orderly but sometimes growth is in the messy and chaotic. Past President Wendy Chang
2023 is the year for Appreciation. Appreciate what I have, the people in my life and that my value as a person appreciates. Area Governor Jamie Apuna

I desire to live each day to the fullest! Alissa P. RCEH Treasurer

Thank you so much for your Clubs' generous funding commitment to the Global Grant project: GG2344007 WASH in a school in Hiep Duc, Vietnam.  7 Clubs in D5000 committed almost $10,000 cash, and with the leverage by DDF and the World Fund, the total available funding is now at $25,000.  As the estimated cost of the project is $39,500 (It is slightly higher than a few months ago as we added water filtration system), we still need to fill the funding gap of $14,000.
We are now approaching a few Rotary Clubs in California (Oakland 3 and Palo Alto Rotary Clubs) to solicit their funding.  I would be grateful if you could let me know of any other Clubs, including your sister Clubs, which may be interested in supporting this project.  I will be happy to talk with them directly to follow up.  FYI attached is the three page powerpoint for your use in approaching other Clubs.
Thank you so much for your help in advance in filling the funding gap as soon as possible so that we can get the approval from TRF and the work can start soonest.  Our hope is for the rehabilitation of the facilities to finish in 7 months and to take a service trip to Vietnam in November 2023.
Please let me know if you have any questions.  Much much Mahalo once again!
