Service above Self -  Joseph LaPlante....

With all that we, as a club, have accomplished over the years, there's one Rotarian that stands out amongst us all. Joe LaPlante has been with the Tilton-Northfield Rotary Club since 1995. Joe has held many positions to include, but not limited to, President (twice), Assistant District Governor, Treasurer, Secretary, and Board Member. Joe is truly the backbone of our club. His knowledge, passion, and leadership has guided us throughout the last twenty years. Joe and his wife Grace, will be starting a new chapter in Minnesota soon. We will miss them dearly and can't say thank you enough to both of them for all they have done for our club and in our community.

Kids Annual Fishing Derby

Congratulations to Matthew Hebert for taking first place in the kids annual fishing derby held on May 17th at the Tilton Prep School pond. This is the club's 38th year in holding the fishing derby. Over the last several years the derby has been in honor of long time Rotarians Harry Laughy and Frank Tibbetts. There were approximately 70 children ranging in ages 1 through 15 that participated in the event. Many thanks to the Rotarians who helped make this year another fun day for our community youths! Thanks also go out to our sponsors and businesses who donated raffle prizes. A special thank you to Tilton School for allowing us to use their private pond!

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Out of tragedy, some people create something good
From the August 2015 issue of The Rotarian What's the worst that could happen? For most of us, that's a simple question. We might be late for a train. We might miss out on a promotion, or even lose a job. But for some, the worst is unimaginably worse. An unfortunate few endure what Ani Kalayjian calls "true trauma." War. Fire. Flood. A daughter disappears. A son contracts Ebola. When faced with such disasters, "people feel anger, guilt, sadness, frustration – feelings that can poison the body and spirit," says Kalayjian, a trauma specialist at Columbia University. "Trauma survivors may think...
San Diego students tackle vaccine controversy
From the August 2015 issue of The Rotarian A group of teenage journalism students in suburban San Diego were in the early stages of a new project – an educational film funded by a Rotary grant – when their teacher's phone rang. A prominent blogger had caught wind of what they were doing from a local news story, and wasn't pleased. The fledgling film came under fire almost overnight as ripples of protest spread through the blogosphere. With calls pouring in before shooting had even begun, the advisers considered halting the project, questioning whether it would be worth the controversy...
What happens when what you know turns out to be wrong?
From the August 2015 issue of The Rotarian One evening, sitting in the back seat of the car, our two girls, ages six and eight, were discussing the show we were on our way to attend. Called The Illusionists, it featured seven of the world's top magicians. The debate consisted of whether there would be real magic involved, or just tricks. "When they cut the man in half," our younger daughter asked, "how do they keep the blood in?" She was convinced there was true magic. Her older sister, a little wiser, wasn't buying it. "Easy," she said. "R-o-b-o-t." She rolled her eyes at how obvious this...
A conversation with Caryl Stern
From the August 2015 issue of The Rotarian The six-day-old baby shuddered with convulsions. Her mother, Rosa, had given birth at home and cut her daughter's umbilical cord with what she could find – a sharp piece of metal. When the newborn contracted tetanus, Rosa walked miles to reach a clinic. That's where Caryl Stern encountered the pair. Stern was on a field visit with UNICEF in Sierra Leone and stayed with Rosa, trying to comfort her, until the child died. The image of the baby in pain, hypersensitive to light and sound, stayed with Stern as she got off the plane in New York and headed...
