DG Kristy Vandenberg's June Message

story thumbnail
Hello District 5840,
 
I am writing this message from Houston, the site of the 2022 Rotary International Convention.  How appropriate it is that June's theme is Fellowship.  I have just spent 6 days with Rotarians from throughout the world united in fellowship.  These members are diverse, smart, of varying ages and backgrounds and have shown compassion for others and passion for Rotary.  All have displayed a united theme and it is "Serve to Change Lives."

Uvalde Community Relief Fund

The horror of the May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary School in the community of Uvalde has been felt around the world, and Rotarians everywhere have reached out to the Rotary Club of Uvalde and District 5840 asking where they can send donations which will go towards healing.
 
In response, and in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Uvalde, our Rotary District 5840 has set-up a Uvalde Community Relief Fund within our 501c3 foundation. The purpose of this fund will be to assist and comfort, where possible, those who are grieving and who are most affected by the shooting as well as to aid in the restoration of the shattered world view of  the children, families, educators, and first responders of Uvalde.

Situation in Uvalde Texas: Immediate Need in our D5840 District is BLOOD Donations

Tragedy has struck Uvalde, Texas on the eve of Uvalde Rotary Club's 100th year celebration!  This has happened in OUR District 5840.  Let us, as Rotarians, do what we DO best!
 
We still are left in the dark regarding most of the goings on in that small town, but, need to keep Uvalde Rotary members, their families, the Uvalde Community, Law Enforcement, Medical Personnel, and sadly, the family of the perpetrator in ongoing prayers.  We will keep all of you notified of anything that we learn.
 
IMMEDIATE NEED:  BLOOD donations.  The Regional Blood Bank was already depleted.  Desperate need for BLOOD Donors.  If all Rotarians in our District, who are able, can immediately go DONATE BLOOD this would be a blessing.
 
Long Term:  We need to look at ways to support Uvalde children and Uvalde Rotary with cooperative grants, programs and projects.
 
There will be a community prayer vigil tonight (5/25/22) at the Fairplex Event Center at 7:00pm.  Further information will be sent out as we learn more.

DG Kristy Vandenberg's May Message

story thumbnail
Happy Cinco de Mayo!  May's theme is Youth Service Month and for many of you, your Youth Projects are coming to an end as the kids prepare for graduation and look forward to summer vacation!  It is an exciting time!  I spoke with a class of 2nd Graders and 3rd Graders yesterday about Water Safety and staying safe around the water!  We read together information from the Josh the Otter program which has been endorsed by Rotary International.  It was a great time, with excellent readers and singers in Harper ISD.  
 
Rotary Youth Exchange is back for the 2022-2022 year!  How exciting to send our youth abroad and at the same time host high school students from other countries to get a taste of South Central Texas Rotary Clubs.  I know that all the clubs participating and their host families and outbound students will have great stories to share.  What better way is there to promote Peace than to experience another country's culture through the eyes of a student?  Kudos to our Youth Exchange Committee for all their hard work interviewing and training both outbound & inbound students as well as host families.  They are all truly silent Heroes to all the kids who participate as without them, this program would not happen!!

District Governor Kristy Vandenberg's March Message

story thumbnail
Our March Rotary Theme is Water & Sanitation.  There are many Global Grants that address this critical issue all over the world and right here at home.  As Rotarians know, these grants can be completed in any country of the world, as long as there are at least two Rotary Clubs willing to donate funds, which can then be matched through their District and Rotary International upon approval.  District 5840 has been a partner in several of these types of grants.  If your club is interested in getting involved with a Global Grant which is focused on water and sanitation, check out www.myrotary.org to find an international partner who wants to help make the dream of safe water a reality.  There are also Rotary Action Groups you can support.  These are listed on www.MyRotary.org too!

District Governor Kristy Vandenberg's December Message

story thumbnail
December is Disease Prevention & Treatment Month.  What a great time our clubs had in October coming together to raise funds for Polio Plus.  Polio Eradication continues to be one of our main goals as an organization.  Kudos to all the clubs that held a Polio fundraising event and/or helped to share information about this disease.
 
Of course, COVID 19 is still out there, with new variants probable.  Rotary supports the COVID 19 vaccine while still honoring an individual's right to choose.  We are working with organizations across the world to help get the vaccine to all individuals in all countries.  We have mourned the loss of friends and family to this disease, but continue to work together as Rotarians committed to Disease Prevention & Treatment.

DG Kristy Vandenberg's November Message

story thumbnail
There are amazing Rotary Clubs and Members in District 5840!  November is a great time to celebrate all the good works supported by the Rotary Foundation!  I have often been asked "Why do you personally give to the Rotary Foundation?"  The answer for me is very simple.
 
I believe that Rotarians across the world are making a great difference by responding daily to the needs of their communities.  Needs like clean water, food security hygiene facilities, schools, clinics, small business development and many more.  I know that my donations to the Foundation are making dreams come true for millions of people!  When natural disasters strike, I know that Rotary Clubs in that area are responding with basic needs and long term solutions.  My donations are helping with emergency needs like food, housing and medical care, along with rebuilding communities.

It’s been a pleasure serving as District Governor for the 2020-21 Rotary year! My family and I have enjoyed meeting new and existing members of our great District. Although our year brought many challenges, changes, and hurdles to overcome, I’m happy we did it together! Together is the only way we can continue to make the world a better place. Despite our differences and opinions, Rotarians have answered the call to serve with excellence. I cannot think of a better organization to serve where members strive to align themselves with the 4-Way Test and the Object of Rotary. Our guiding principles keep us grounded, help us self-reflect, and build a better environment for those we encounter.

DG Message To The Youth: Never Doubt Your Opportunity To Shake The World!

I’ve never heard or seen that specific quote from Gandhi before writing this message. However, the message has been in my heart for a very long time. My childhood is a story of very humble beginnings, which I believe helped to coat my heart with love for all humankind – despite our differences. As a youth, I would watch the infomercials come across the television screen requesting aid for children in Africa, Haiti, or some other country outside the United States.

Last month, the PolioPlus article said “So far in 2021, in the two endemic countries, Afghanistan has had only 1 case of Wild Polio Virus 1 (WPV1) and Pakistan has had 1 case. WPV1 is the only wild virus still found in the natural state. This is still the same status right now. If there are no more cases of polio until February, 2024, the world will be declared polio free. That means no more children anywhere in world will have to worry about being crippled by the polio virus.

During March, Rotary Water and Sanitation Month, we celebrate our commitment to creating healthier communities by supplying clean water and sanitation facilities to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

Food Insecurity is the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.  Hays County has a food insecurity rate of 14.3% with 24,710 food insecure people....  8,609 of which are children. 
 
When the pandemic hit and in person meetings were no longer recommended by the CDC, the Rotary Club of Wimberley voted to donate their weekly meal budget to the Wimberley Crisis Bread Basket.  There are more than 2050 Wimberley residents living below the poverty level.  We are proud to support our neighbors in their time of need, and we encourage those who can, to consider donating their time and/or resources to this worthy cause as well.
