Message from Governor John Reyes December 2019

Dear District 6630 fellow Rotarians and Friends:
In a continuing attempt to focus our interests and efforts in developing membership through new and innovative ways, I need to update you on recent activities of the District’s Strategic Planning Committee. The Strategic Planning Committee has been looking at realigning Clusters in District 6630, beginning its efforts in this regard in the 2018-2019 Rotary year. During that Rotary year, the Strategic Planning Committee, chaired by PDG John Bosco, was asked to look at the question of if and how existing clusters within the District should be re-aligned in light of shifting membership patterns. Simply put, the District has had 11 clusters for a number of years. Those cluster include Ashtabula County (Andover, Ashtabula, Conneaut, Geneva, Jefferson, and Rock Creek Grand Valley); Cuyahoga County Northeast (Cleveland, Hillcrest Sunrise, and the Heights of Greater Cleveland); Cuyahoga County Northwest-Lorain County (Westshore, Lakewood-Rocky River, Lakewood-Rocky River Sunrise, North Ridgeville, Westlake-Bay Village); Cuyahoga County Southeast-Summit (Bedford, Chagrin Highlands, Nordonia Hills, Solon, and Twinsburg); Cuyahoga County Southwest (Berea, North Royalton-Broadview Heights, Parma, Strongsville); Geauga County (Burton-Middlefield, Chagrin Valley, Chardon, and Chesterland); Lake County (Mentor, Painesville, Wickliffe, Willoughby, Willowick-Eastlake ); Medina County (Brunswick, Lodi, Medina, Medina Sunrise, Wadsworth); Portage County (Aurora, Garrettsville-Hiram, Kent, Mantua, Ravenna); Summit County North (Cuyahoga Falls, Hudson, Hudson Clocktower, Northampton-Cuyahoga Valley, Stow-Munroe Falls); and Summit County South (Akron, Barberton, Green, Fairlawn, Port Summit, Tallmadge).
Due to the fluctuation in the number of clubs, what started out a number of years ago as clusters of relatively even size has now shifted so that at least one cluster—Cuyahoga County Northeast has only three clubs, while others, such as Summit County South, have six. Further, and unfortunately, the Medina club recently went out of existence.
As a result of these changes, the Strategic Planning Committee recommended to the District’s Board on October 24, 2019, that the clusters be reorganized, effective December 31, 2019. Most clusters will be unaffected. However, after careful consideration, the Strategic Planning Committee did recommend a number of changes which were adopted by the District Board on October 24, 2019. In the ensuing time, all Assistant Governors have been briefed and have been in the process of describing these changes to the various clusters. A summary of the changes is:
  1. Medina Cluster will be eliminated, effective December 31, 2019.

  2. There will be no change to the composition of the Geauga, Lake, Ashtabula, and Cuyahoga County Northwest—Lorain County clusters.

  3. The Rotary Club of Chagrin-Highlands will move from the Cuyahoga County Southeast Cluster to the Cuyahoga County Northeast Cluster.

  4. The Rotary Club of Tallmadge will move from the Summit County South Cluster to the Summit County North Cluster.

  5. The Rotary Club of Port-Summit will move from the Summit County South Cluster to the Portage County Cluster.

  6. The Rotary Club of Medina-Sunrise, and the Rotary Club of Wadsworth will move from the Medina Cluster to the Summit County South Cluster.

  7. The Rotary Club of Brunswick and the Rotary Club of Lodi will move from the Medina Cluster to the Cuyahoga County Southwest Cluster.

  8. Any Rotaract or Interact Club will remain in the same Cluster as the sponsoring Rotary Club when the changes in the various cluster become effective.

An endeavor has been made to accomplish at least two things. First, to better “equalize” the number of clubs in each cluster. While the perfect balancing is not possible, we have achieved a better balance.
Second, an endeavor has been made to place clubs, to the extent changes were made, where either connections have already developed or where there is the potential for connections to develop between clubs.
These changes, as noted, are the result of shifting membership patterns within our District. This is not the first time clusters have been re-aligned, and probably will not be the last.
You should know that the Strategic Planning Committee is now hard at work on the second portion of its charge originally adopted in 2018-2019. That is to carefully study our entire District to look for locations where new Rotary Clubs, of whatever type, might be started. This gives us even more opportunities to look at how we might grow our District, and thereby expand our reach, impact, vibrancy, and community involvement. We will certainly keep you apprised as these events develop, and if you have questions, do not hesitate to contact either myself or the Assistant Governor in your Cluster.
With regard to membership, has your club assessed its progress in gaining and retaining new member’s year to date? We are nearly at the half-way point in this Rotary year, and while the District has made progress in adding new members, that progress has been limited. Even though virtually all clubs are working hard to gain membership, your Membership Committee continues to work hard (having recently completed a successful Tri-District Membership Conference and having distributed well over two dozen Rotary Leads), our increase in membership has been limited. In fact, as of the time I write this, the District has increased in membership by 23. While that progress is welcome, I think it is fair to say if the District is to end the year with its first “net gain” of members in some time, we all will need to focus a little bit harder and stretch toward the challenge of reaching out for even more people of action to join us.
These are many ways this might be done, but one that your club might consider is looking at this year’s Presidential Citation for Rotary Clubs. As you can see with even a brief glance, the goals President Maloney asked each club to focus on are membership oriented. By example only, one of the five goals of the United People section is to appoint an active Membership Committee comprised of no less than five members, as well as to improve or maintain your club’s retention of current and new members by at least 1%.
With regard to retaining members, there are also multiple goals that clubs can and should focus upon, including increasing the number of members involved in service projects, or arranging for club members to tell your club’s and Rotary’s story. In summary, this year’s Rotary Presidential Citation is a “mini” membership plan in its own right. Consider using it for that purpose, and perhaps win an award in the process.
In closing, I want to wish all of our District members and their families a healthy and happy holiday season. We have much to be grateful for and much to look forward to as we move through the holidays. Please take time to reflect on not only the gifts we have received, but also the gifts we can give as we continue through a very exciting Rotary year.
Yours in Rotary Service,
John Reyes

‘Twas the night of December 5, and all through the House not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.  The stockings were…….   Wait, Wait, Wait, that’s not right.  Let’s try this again.  You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen, Comet and….. No, No that is not it either.   
I think you all will agree with me that December 5th was a magical evening.  On this night, we came together to enjoy each other’s company, to support the Rotary Foundation, to recognize our Clubs and Fellow Rotarians and friends, and did I mention that we helped out some very special youth?
Now are you still trying to figure out what this MAGICAL event was?  This was of course our Annual Foundation Gala.   Our theme this year was “Holidays Around the World.”  This theme was a dedication not only to the Diverse Cultures within Rotary, but maybe even more importantly our Youth Exchange Students.  On this evening, we invited all of our inbound Youth Exchange Students to join us in celebration.
The evening started out with some fellowship intertwined with great food and drink(s).   During this time we had several wild and crazy fellows interrupting everyone to inform about the wonderful Silent Auction.  Everyone, do you remember that AWESOME desert table for the Desert Dash?  If you do, raise your hand real high, come on higher, HIGHER.  On second thought put your hands down, that person next to you is looking at you strangely.   An event like this always needs a great MC, Master of Ceremonies if you were not sure, and boy did we have one!  Why don’t we all give Steve Warren a big hand.  I love the enthusiasm, but you can stop clapping, that person next to you is really wondering what is going on. 
I had better get back to the script, otherwise 'you know who' is going to be calling me.  
Along with the fellowship, we had fun with our silent auction, live auction and, RAISE those hands again if you remember that Desert Dash.   I am sorry, I did it again. Put your hands down.  Guess what, we raised over $10,000 between these three, and all of this will be given to The Rotary Foundation.  Remember in three years half of this will come back to our District and be put towards grants that our Clubs do.
Hold the presses, do you remember the “Two Amigos” and what fun they had?  Put your hands down, this was a rhetorical question.  Of course they are our Past District Governor Beverly Ghent-Skrzynski and Governor John Reyes, and they were judging the Costume and Ugly Sweater contest.  The Costume Contest was won by one of our Exchange Students.  The Ugly Sweater Contest was won by Rich Cole, Rotary Club of Port-Summit. He has now won this three years in a row.  I am, here and now, putting a challenge to all Rotarians to step up their game and at least give Rich a run for his money.
How about those International themed center pieces on the tables?  Each and every one of those was made by the youth at S.U.P.E.R Learning Center in Lakemore.  S.U.P.E.R. is Ohio's leading cognitive development center and autism school.  I hope all of you had the chance to bid on those center pieces.  ALL the money raised from these sales went directly back to help those youth at the center.  Thank you for your support. You in the back, you can put your hand down now.
The best part of the evening was yet to come. 
To me it is always very special when we can recognize clubs and Individuals.  On this December 5, 2019 we did just that.   These recognitions were based around giving to the Rotary Foundation for the Rotary Year 2018-19.     During this year, we were inspired and guided by our District Governor Beverly Ghent-Skrzynski, Rotary Club of Cleveland. 
We start our recognitions with 53,000 Points of Light Polio Eradication Major Donor Induction Ceremony.  Twelve clubs were recognized for contributing at least $1,500 to the End Polio Now Campaign.  PDG Beverly was assisted by special guest Keven Kelly  who is the Major Gift Officer for The Rotary Foundation, and  the Grandson of Arch C. Klumph, Frederick T. “Rory” McGuire, Rotary Club of Cleveland (shown in photo).  Thank you to all of our clubs and Rotarians that have contributed to ENDING Polio.   
That night we recognized clubs that had: one, In the EREY (Every Rotarian Every Year) campaign raised an average $100  per person per capita; second, for having 100% of club members donate to the Rotary Foundation.  Those clubs who achieve 100% member giving to the Annual Fund were rewarded with this opportunity to present a Paul Harris Fellow to an individual who has made a difference in the community. 
PDG Beverly had some special help in presenting these recognitions. Helping PDG Beverly were the following; PDG Bob Johnson, 2018-2019 Chair, District 6630 Foundation, Rotary Club of Burton-Middlefield; Jim Lechko, Chair, 2019-2020, District 6630 Foundation, Rotary Club of Lakewood-Rocky River;  Rick Pollak, Member, District 6630 Grants Committee, Rotary Club of Cuyahoga Falls
OH by the way, that individual(s) that was wondering why you kept putting up your hands and clapping for no apparent reason, take a minute and introduce yourself and Rotary, and do not forget to invite them to your next club meeting.
In recap the reason that we hold events like this is to recognize our District, our Clubs, and most importantly Our Members.  How do we measure the success of this event?  Is it by the over $10,000 that was raised through the Dessert Dash, Silent and Live Auctions that will be given to the Rotary Foundation?  Is it by the awards and recognition's handed out?  Is it by the over 200 Rotarians, Spouses and Friends that attended? Maybe it was by those beautiful center pieces  made by the youth at Super Learning Centers, and the donations that were made to help those students.   I believe the answer is simple, we use our 4-Way Test and our motto "Service Above Self".  Does this event meet and exceed the 4-Way test, Absolutely!  We recognized our Clubs and Rotarians for devoting their lives to Service above Self. 
What our committee dedicated their time to over the past few months was to help everyone celebrate what Rotary is all about!
As our theme this year was "Holidays Around the World," I have found the best way to say thank you.

On November 13, the RC of Hudson Clocktower presented Rotary Veterans lapel pins to three of their members at their members.  PDG Jack Young and past Vietnam Era Veteran conducted a special recognition program before members and guest.
After giving a brief history of both how Veterans and Rotarians have the same history of serving to help others and follow Rotary's motto "Service Above Self"  had pins presented to Rotarians Angus McAm (Army); Gerry Sawyer (Air Force) and Bill Koke (Army).  In addition, both Bill Rogers (Marine) husband of past Club President Gloria Rogers and Dan Harold (Navy) son of DGE Pat Myers were also recognized for their service.
After the recognition ceremony, each Veteran gave a summary of their service to our country.  DGE Past Myers was present and presented a pin to her son-in-law and Gloria Rogers received a pin on behalf of her husband.  For more information as to how your club can be involved in this special recognition of our Veterans, please feel free to contact PDG Jack Young.  (440-759-4000 or

On November  15, 2019 a previous youth exchange student returned to the United States and came to the meeting of the Rotary Club of North Ridgeville.  
Namisal Wongsaeree, known as Aom, was a Inbound Youth Exchange when she was 15 years old and was hosted by the Rotary Club of North Ridgeville during the 2005-06 Rotary year.  This was the year that PDG Jack Young was District Governor and the district and clubs hosted 23 young people in the Inbound Youth Exchange process.
Both PDG Jack and Rotarian Marsha Pappalardo, who also participated in a number of Inbound activities that year, were guests at the noon meeting of North Ridgeville. With Aom on the trip to the United States were her mother Apinya and brother Tantai Wongsaeree.                                .
Since being a Rotary Youth Exchange Student, Moa received a Master of Arts Degree in Law and Diplomacy from  the Fletcher School of Law, Tuffs University,  in the United States in 2013-15.  She worked in the Thai Corrections Department for 2 1/2 years and now works with the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs. She made a presentation regarding her life after her youth exchange experience.
Jack indicated that because of her, this is why Rotary is so strong and supports the youth exchange process.  "It is delightful and encouraging to see young people like AOM be successful and giving back to society" said Young. 
When Jack asked her what is the best thing she learned from being in an exchange student program, she replied, "Humanity will always prevail.  No matter the race, cultures, religions, backgrounds, in the end, we are all human, and we are all in it together"  A special thank you to the RC of North Ridgeville for hosting this wonderful family this past week.

Start or enhance a project to fight and prevent disease
Rotary members lead efforts to treat and prevent diseases around the world. They fight malaria, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, polio, and other serious health problems by establishing clinics, blood-donation centers, and training facilities in underserved communities. They also design and build health systems that allows doctors, patients, and governments to work together.

Clubs also focus on prevention by providing health education and bringing routine hearing, vision, and dental care to those in need.

In December, Rotary’s Disease Prevention and Treatment Month, take action to fight and prevent diseases in your community. Here are three ways to do that:
  1. Build on an existing project or conduct a community assessment to determine what’s needed in your region. To get started, take a look at the Community Assessment Tools guide or take the Conducting a Community Assessment online course.
  2. Collaborate with a Rotarian Action Group — members who share an interest in a particular service area and help other Rotarians design humanitarian projects. Of the 24 Rotarian Action Groups, 12 action groups that focus on disease prevention and treatment.
  3. Join the Disease Prevention and Treatment discussion group on My Rotary to learn from experts and exchange project ideas with fellow Rotarians.
Vocational service in action

As 2018-19 vocational service chair, Ganesan K worked to promote vocational service throughout District 3232 (Tamil Nadu, India). He helped organize job fairs and career-guidance sessions, empowered Rotaractors with new skills to respond to emergencies, and worked with businesses to raise money for vocational service activities.

Rotary’s collaborating organizations
Collaborating with community leaders to increase your impact

In an effort to recognize select organizations that have an extensive history of working with Rotarians or Rotaractors, Rotary has created a new relationship designation: collaborating organizations. Rotary now acknowledges these groups and the relationships they have with clubs and districts by listing them on, as we list corporate-level partners.

Collaborating organizations offer Rotary members opportunities to participate with them in humanitarian service locally or internationally. They can be nongovernmental organizations, government agencies, corporations, or universities. They adhere to Rotary’s ethical standards, have no conflicts of interest in their work with Rotary, and have a regional or global presence. If you know of an organization that should have this designation and be featured on our Collaborating Organizations page, please complete the Relationship Inquiry Form.

Introducing programs of scale grants
A new type of grant 

Programs of scale grants are competitive grants designed to respond to a need that a community has identified. They will benefit a large number of people in a significant geographic area using a sustainable, evidence-based intervention with measurable outcomes and impact. Each grant will support, for three to five years, activities that align with one or more of Rotary’s areas of focus.

The Rotary Foundation will award an amount of $2 million annually to a single program of scale in a competitive, two-step proposal-to-application process. Applicants should be prepared to include a fully developed and highly sophisticated project design, as well as include baseline data and plans for monitoring and evaluation. The project should involve activities that have proved to be successful elsewhere. The Rotary clubs or districts with the strongest proposals will be invited to submit applications, which will include comprehensive details about the project. Partner organizations can complete the proposal and application along with the Rotary club or district.

To start planning your project, download the proposal and application guidelines. Proposals and applications will be submitted online. Please read the terms and conditions and learn more online.


As the first 6 months of our Rotary 2019-20 Rotary Year approaches, we can begin our efforts to consider the Rotary International Fellowship that best fits our personal level of interest.  Each Fellowship allows us to connect with Rotarians who have like interest without the world, thus bringing us closer together to help understand the culture of others.
In the November issue of our District 6630 Newsletter I listed different Fellowships that you and or your family could become involved with that you could share your passion with others.  For December 2019, below are additional Fellowships for your information.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.  (440-759-4000 or

We are pleased to announce that all Rotary clubs using ClubRunner have two new membership types available to them to catagorize your members in your local ClubRunner databases:
  • Active - Satellite
  • Active - Corporate
IMPORTANT:  Rotary International will see continue members added in these categories as Active members of the club as RI does not yet recognize Active members in any other manner.

The new membership types are available when:
  • Adding new members
  • Re-activating past members
  • Changing a member from Honorary to Active
  • Editing active membership type

If your club had previously requested a custom membership type to handle Active - Corporate or Active - Satellite membership types, these have been migrated into the new universal types.
