Ukraine Rotary District 2232 is sponsoring a Christmas Project Fair for Rotarians and clubs around the world who wish to learn more about how to help as another winter approaches.
For details and/or to register, click Ukraine Project Fair.  There will be a plenary session at 10:45 am and breakout groups focussed on efforts by clubs in Ukraine providing much needed support to families and children.  
The project fair begins with RI President Gordon McInally, President-Elect Stephanie Urchick, RI General Secretary John Hawk, Ukraine District governor Myron Uhryn and front-line physician Dr. Olha Paliychuk.  For further information on Rotary projects in Ukraine thus far, click Rotary Ukraine.

Our project this year will include providing 1-2 meals/ month from December 2023  to June 2024 at the Brookline Teen Center.  This is an extension of the two BBQ dinners the Club hosted this past summer and fall. Our first cooking class/dinner will start at 3pm Monday, December 11th.

Once a month, the dinner will be part of a cooking class that Rotarian and BU Professor, Karen Jacobs will lead.  Each meal will include a vegetarian, low-cost entrée and a dessert that the students can easily replicate at home. The second meal of the month will be food brought in from a local restaurant.  Menus are being created by Dr. Jacobs and the Teen Center staff.  

Brookline Rotarians and BU Rotaract Members along with BU  Occupational Therapy students will cook and serve alongside the Teen Center participants.  The menus will be created by Dr. Jacobs and the Teen Center staff. 

If you are interested in helping to shop, serve or reach out to restaurants, contact Susan Rack, Service Projects Chair.

In 1907, the Rotary Club of Chicago -- which had been established only two years before by Paul Harris -- initiated the very first Rotary public service project: the construction of 'comfort stations' or public toilets.
This step transformed Rotary into the world’s first Service Club. For details about this event, click Rotary's Comfort Stations 
November 19, 2023 is World Toilet Day -- an official United Nations Observance day.  Worldwide, over 4.2 billion people live without safe sanitation, and around 673 million people continue to defecate in the open. Access to toilets is an essential part of improving sanitation, safety and community life. To learn more, use this link: UN Toilet Day 11/19/2023.
