MALDEN ROTARY NEWS

 
The Malden Rotary Club embarked on a TWO Hour Cruise for the purpose of Installing our New President for Fiscal Year 2015-16, Paul Solano.
 
The boat departed at 6PM sharp with a number of Malden Rotarians on board.  First Mate Rick Burns was there to shove off on this new adventure up the Charles River.
 
 
The Malden Rotary Road Race Committee had been working on the details of the 12th Annual Malden Rotary Road Race. This year's 5K and 10K races will be held on Saturday, March 28th. You can find more information on the new website www.maldenrotaryroadrace.com.
 

 
On January 7th, Malden Rotary recognized several heroes from the community at the 4th Annual Service Above Self Awards. The awards program honors people from our community that work selflessly to ensure our community is a safe and thriving city to live in. Malden Rotary honors members of the Malden Police and Fire Departments, the Emergency Management Center, Cataldo Ambulance, the Middlesex Sheriff's Office and a community service volunteer.
 
 
Recently Rotarian Liz Hart, our new InterAct Club Advisor, met with the Inter Act Club at Malden High School. Liz discussed the clubs priorities and their upcoming participation in this year's Polar Plunge. Along with the InterAct Club President Roberto De Oliveira, Liz presented pins to the new officers.
 
Liz stated, "I am ery proud to be working with this great group of students who are interested in building their leadership skills while helping the community." Liz takes over the role as InterAct Advisor form her husband and fellow Rotarian David Hart.

The YouthHarbors program serves homeless, unaccompanied high school students who statistically have only a 27% chance of graduating from high school. YouthHarbors provides them with housing assistance, an adult support network, and individualized life skills development lessons so they can find safety in appropriate housing, graduate high school, and break the cycle of homelessness and poverty to become self-sufficient adults.
 
In the program’s first four years, 94% of youth have been stably housed at the end of the year, and 97% have either graduated or been on track to graduate.
 
YouthHarbors is a program funded solely through individual, foundation, and corporate donations, as it fills a need that is ignored by all state and federal monies and by most philanthropic efforts.  These young adults are too old for child services, and adult shelters expose them to a world that is completely developmentally inappropriate and dangerous for them.
 
 
 
Malden Rotarian, Dr. Howard Stranger, is riding to end homelessness by participating in th 2014 Rodman Ride For Kids. This will be Howard's fifth year riding for Housing Families.  The Dr. is the living embodiment of Service Above Self. The Rodman Ride is the #1 single-day athletic fundraiser in the nation supporting at-risk kids. The expenses associated with the Ride for Kids are less than 3% of the total revenue, and they are all underwritten. This means that when you donate to the Ride for Kids, 100% of your donation will directly benefit at-risk kids!
 
 
 
As a college student, Liz Powers wrote a thesis which explored the social benefits of art therapy programs. Upon graduating from college, Liz created art groups in women's shelters in Cambridge, Mass. She realized that there were many great art therapy programs in Boston, but the missing piece was an equally empowering method for the artists to share their artwork.
 
 
 
 
The Malden Rotary Club held its annual Installation of Officers Dinner this past Wednesday, June 25th.  Immediate Past President David Hart welcomed 2014/15 President Debbie Amaral. Deb who serves as the Malden YMCA’s Executive Director looks forward to leading the club with an eye on celebrating local non-profits and increasing the club membership.
 
 
 
 
 
Malden Rotary continues to be a strong and vital partner to Rotary International. Our club has set a standard in District 7930 that demonstrates our commitment to support Rotary International and our District Governor.
 
Our club recently received word from the district leadership that our club has achieved both "Every Rotarian Every Year" and Rotary Foundation's "Sustaining Member" status.  Robert Gravino, District Foundation Annual Fund Chair said, "Congratulations! Malden has achieved both EREY and Rotary Foundation Sustaining Member status for the 2013-2014 Rotary Year.  Nice job!  This achievement means that I will have the pleasure of returning to your club early in the 2014-2015 Rotary Year to present Malden with two RI Banners, one for EREY and the other for RFSM." We look forward to Bob visit and receiving the banners for our cub's accomplishments.
 
Bob also brought news of another club success and said, "The Malden Rotary Club have also met Governor John Hall's goal of achieving First Class status, whereby every member contributes any amount to the Foundation."
