Rotarians can help in Equador by responding to the medical needs of those suffering from the recent earthquake.
 
Health Partners International of Canada currently has 100 Humanitarian Medical Kits ready to be shipped. HPIC is sponsored by the Canadian pharmaceutical manufacturers and thus has access to top quality Canadian medications and medical supplies.
 
I serve on the Board and fully endorse HPIC's ability to provide necessary essential products. HPIC can supply $10 wholesale value of medication for $1. All in Canadian funds. This leverage make our contributions go further.

HPIC is also working with World Vision Canada in Angola in response to a yellow fever outbreak.

For more information on these emergencies and how to contribute please visit www.hpicanada.ca

Every three months the District updates the measures it uses to track the outcomes of the various activities and programs that we have on the go.  The measures are helpful in assessing the effectiveness of the strategic plan and the tactics used by the various district committees.
 
As the third quarter is now complete, you can get a real sense of the accomplishments of the all the activities.  Many of the goals for 2015-16 have already been met and exceeded!
 
In the next month or so the District team will review the goals and measures, adjust as necessary and then refine and add to the tactical plans for the 2016-17 Rotary year.

The Board of Directors for District 7820 established a task force to review the approach to district conferences in response to a request from the Rotary Club of Charlottetown Royalty.  The District Conference was last studied in 2002 and the recommendations in the report written at the time had largely been adopted.
 
The terms of reference and membership for the task force were set and a report of the findings was due by April 30, 2016. The task force was composed of the following Rotarians: PDG Doug Logan (Chair), PDG Greg Coldwell , PDG Gord Hankin, DGN Don Sword, PP Dave Works, AG Carman Carroll, AG Ann Sherman, and PP Tom Davies. 
 
The report of the District Conference Review committee was received by the District Board in February and  after review was accepted by the Board of Directors on March 17th 2016.
 
 
 
The April 1st deadline for completion of requirements to qualify for the 2015-16 RI Presidential Citation is rapidly approaching.  As all is recorded on Rotary Club Central, it is easy to see that many clubs are closing in on meeting the requirements.

The On-Line Tool adaption area is one that seems to be giving many clubs problems.  All club members can help achieve the citation with a few simple activities.  
 
Of the several options, the three easiest to complete are "50% of Club members logging into My Rotary",  the "Create or Contribute to a Rotary Ideas project" and have at least two Rotarians "Join and Contribute to a Rotary Discussion Group".
 
 
 
PDG Stella Roy has been on several National Immunization Days (IND). In this story she tells about her experience in India last year.
 
 
We are SO CLOSE to ending Polio as a result of the hard work of tens of thousands of Rotarians like Stella.
