Over the past eight years, the Southwest Omaha Rotary Night Club has hosted Fine Wine and Hors d’ Oeuvres tastings benefiting the Boys Town National Hotline® which SAVES CHILDREN AND HEALS FAMILIES across the country.  With your past help, they have raised over $250,000.00!
In 2016, the Hotline received 179,017 contacts, answering over 144,000 Calls and responding to nearly 35,000 Web-Based Contacts (emails, chats, texts, etc.). Hotline counselors assisted more than 25,000 individuals who said they were having suicidal thoughts and PREVENTED 476 potential suicides.
And, KIDS and TEENS share their challenges on the Hotline's website,
24/7, year round, the Hotline is there to help!
This year our goal is to give the Hotline at least $65,000 to aid in the promotion of the “Your Life, Your Voice” campaign. Posters, banners, wallet cards and magnets will be distributed locally and nationally to as many schools as possible. In addition, money raised will allow the new texting service for teens to be available more hours each day.
We cannot do this without your help!  We would like to thank you in advance for your continued support of the Boys Town National Hotline.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
