Humble Rotary supports early childhood literacy through Imagination Library
By Melanie Feuk | Posted 21 hours ago

With the new school year fast approaching, the Humble Rotary is proud to continue providing a pre-school literacy program that helps promote early childhood reading, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
 
The Imagination Library provides a child from birth to the age of 5 years old with an age-appropriate book every month.
“The Humble Rotary adopted the Lakeland Elementary School area and we wanted to make sure we’re putting books into the houses of the children in the area we support,” Pam McNair, president of Humble Rotary, said. “With school starting, we’ll be sending home flyers with students and informing families through the school about this opportunity.”
The Humble Rotary has partnered with Dolly Parton since last year to provide this service to children in the Lakeland Elementary School area in Humble. For $25 annually per child enrolled, Humble Rotary now sponsors the memberships of more than 60 children benefiting from the program.

“This is a wonderful program,” McNair said. “Humble Rotary wanted to be involved in literacy and there is nothing better than to partner with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. It’s a respected program and we are more than happy to be a part of it. “Statistics show that children with books in their house have a higher rate of graduating. A child, who has 60 books by the time they start school, has a nearly 100 percent chance of graduating from high school. That is the purpose of the Imagination Library; to get books into the home to increase the literacy rate and up the chance of graduating.”

Ivan Butterfield, community service literacy chair of Rotary district 5890, is an avid proponent of the Imagination Library. He expands on the importance of introducing young children to literature.“Some neurologists are now urging parents to start reading to their children from birth,” Butterfield said. “This helps the child build a foundation for future learning. If a child is not exposed to books by the time they are 3 to 5 years old, studies show when they enter school, they have a great possibility of not reading at grade level by third grade and if a child is not at grade level by third grade, they are much more likely to drop out before graduation.

“A parent is a child’s first teacher. To take just minutes a day reading with a child develops multiple different skill sets. Those sets are the foundation of learning and that is what the Imagination Library strives to provide.”

Rotary district collecting relief funds for Louisiana flood victims
Rotary clubs of District 6200 are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana, USA, earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.
Hall of Fame singer Donovan becomes a Rotary polio ambassador
Legendary singer and polio survivor Donovan Leitch, better known simply as Donovan, has joined Rotary in its fight to eradicate the paralyzing disease that afflicted him during much of his childhood. Donovan contracted polio at age three in Glasgow, Scotland. The disease weakened his right leg and left it thinner and shorter than the other. Confined to his bed for much of his childhood, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer said his father would read him poetry. In a recent interview with the Daily Express, Donovan said that listening to poetry piqued his interest in creative writing. “If I...
World Polio Day toolkit available — start planning now
Rotary's fourth World Polio Day celebration, on 24 October, will highlight extraordinary progress in the eradication campaign and emphasize the work that remains before we wipe out the virus for good. With the number of new cases worldwide nearly halved from this time last year, we have the opportunity to rally our resources and see the last case of polio this year. Health officials and Rotary's celebrity polio ambassadors will head to Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for the event, the first to be held at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It will be streamed live and then will...
Young member uses leadership positions to promote diversity, inclusion
The way Rotary member Todd Jenkins puts it, he's the first generation in his family "to do everything": first to go to college, first to fly on a plane, first to visit another country, and the first to live across state lines. Jenkins, 28, grew up in a low-income neighborhood in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. His family worked hard just to make ends meet. So travel and college seemed out of reach. The eldest of ten children, Jenkins says his goal was to break out of the family status quo and set a positive example for his siblings. He credits his mother with helping him avoid falling into the...
Rotary recommits to ending polio in Nigeria
The World Health Organization has confirmed two cases of wild poliovirus type 1 (WPV1) in Nigeria, the first cases in the country since July 2014. After passing a year without a case of the wild poliovirus, Nigeria was removed from the list of polio-endemic countries in September 2015. These cases – from two local government areas of Borno state – occurred in July 2016. The Government of Nigeria – in partnership with the Global Polio Eradication Initiative – will take immediate steps to respond quickly to the outbreak to prevent further spread of the disease. This response will include...

The Rotarian Conversation with Nobel laureate Stefan Hell
From the August 2016 issue of The Rotarian Four hundred years ago, the invention of the microscope gave us a glimpse into an aspect of the world too tiny to be seen by the human eye. The microscope works by capturing light shone on or through an object observed through lenses, which magnify the resulting image so we can see it. But a microscope has its limits. In 1873, German physicist Ernst Abbe discovered that the ability of a microscope to see past a certain size was limited not by the quality of its lens, but by the wavelength of light shining into it. And since the wavelength of visible...
