In a time honored tradition Columbus Rotary celebrated it’s “Changing of the Guard” on June 26, 2015.  The traditional gavel exchange took place between now Past President CK Satyapriya and President Tricia Strahler with numerous guests, family members, Rotary VIP’s and Rotarians on hand.
Dr. Steve Sundre started the proceedings with a thoughtful invocation.   President CK took the podium and thanked out going Board members Chip Chapman, Mike Kehoe and Rich Ramsey for their time and service.  CK then introducing the incoming officers and Board members for the coming year: President Tricia Strahler, President Elect Jack Graf, Vice President Paul Blevins, Treasurer Roy Lydic, Secretary Scott Brown and Directors Dana Charlton, Deana Gordon, Galen Graham, Bob Lash, John O’Meara, Mike Rankin, Calloway Robertson, John Stewart and David Zid.  CK also thanked all committee chairs and the 27 new members that joined under his tenure.
He ended his presidency by highlighting new membership categories that were developed to ease access to younger members as well as an “E” category for those who cannot attend on Monday’s.  Further CK mentioned the use of Touchpoints which allow one to more accurately measure ones participation in the Club.  With his remarks concluded CK turned over the gavel and Presidents pin to Tricia Strahler.  Trisha thanked CK for his service and introduced all Past Presidents in attendance. 
President Tricia started her remarks with some history; her history really and how she ended up in Columbus Rotary almost nine years ago.  She pointed out three important individuals who shaped her personal life and professional career.  To these three she bestowed Paul Harris Fellowships; Dr. Robert Richmond, Carol Ellies Moorehead and Stephen Gunder.   Tricia also recognized her family who play an important role in her life and many who were on hand at the meeting.  Lastly, she recognized the first Columbus Rotarians that she met and worked with on an event for then District Governor Luke McCormick.  These individuals are Jim Bartha, Jerry Converse, Jim King, Steve Sundre and Hugo Trux.

Early cancer detection is saving lives in Sri Lanka
More than 20,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year in Sri Lanka, and many of them prove fatal. The Rotary Club of Colombo, Sri Lanka, set out 10 years ago to save some of those lives by establishing the Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Centre.  In partnership with the National Cancer Control Programme and the Ministry of Health, the center in Colombo has screened more than 35,000 patients, mostly low-income, and detected more than 7,500 cases of abnormalities that required further investigation. The Rotary Club of Birmingham, Alabama, USA, donated a mammography and ultrasound...

Rotary releases $40.3 million for polio immunization activities
Rotary is releasing $40.3 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds will help build on gains Rotary and its partners have been making in the fight to eradicate polio. Nigeria hasn’t seen a polio case since 24 July 2014 and the World Health Organization could remove it from the list of polio-endemic countries as soon as September if no cases are reported. Nigeria would have to go another two years without a case to be certified polio-free. But the...
Knocking down language barriers
Before the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, Russian was the predominant second language offered in Polish schools, leaving tens of thousands of Polish emigrants without the English skills they needed.   That has changed over the last 25 years. English proficiency drastically improved after the government reformed its education system in 1991. The country overhauled its teaching curriculum and materials and introduced English as the primary foreign language. As of 2013, Poland ranks 8th in the world in English proficiency. However, one segment of the population isn’t reaping...
