ROTARY NEWS



1. 2022 ROTARY ROSE PARADE FLOAT



2022 Rotary Rose Parade Committee Float Theme:


Changing Lives Through Education


The 2022 Rose Parade marks the 42nd consecutive year the RRPFC has spearheaded Rotary’s representation in America’s New Year Celebration.  This year’s theme, “Changing Lives Through Education,” aligns with one of Rotary’s seven areas of focus, Basic Education and Literacy.   A sixteen-foot-tall owl embodies both the spirit of self-improvement and Rotary’s determination to make the tools of education available to everyone in every land. Books, a quill pen and a hybrid apple/globe  symbolize the importance of education throughout the world.

The video below is a good one after you get through the ads which on their own are interesting!

2.  HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM TRACY IN KENYA.



Tracy Ochieng our star pupil from Nairobi sends her greetings to all of our members at Coolamon RC.

Tracy writes:

"I had a wonderful Christmas. I was with the whole family. Mum is recuperating well and her progress wasn’t something we expected. We really thank God. Quinter (my sister), and her family visited. It was a full house!

Next semester is will be second last semester in school and I’m super ready to complete this journey.


The Covid cases keep surging over. We are hopeful that in the next coming months that things might change.


Praying that you make it to the graduation next year.


Send my love to Susan and the rest of your family and to the members of the Coolamon Rotary Club.


All my love to you☺️

Merry Christmas and A happy new year 🎆 "



 I got to visit Mfangano island here in Homa Bay on the shores of Lake Victoria during Christmas.










January is Rotary Vocational Service Month.
