Our members and guests had a fun afternoon on July 18, 2021, at Bowling Fun-Day in Yonkers.
We completed the first phase of the much-heralded Public Health Initiative, an outreach program for early detection of breast cancer lesions based on an innovative new device, iBreastExam.  United Community Center of Westchester hosted this outreach at its premises in New Rochelle, New York.  Dr. Maria Castaldi, Head of Breast Cancer Surgery, Westchester Medical Center, and her hand-picked medical team conducted the tests from May 22 - June 12, 2021.  Despite the COVID-19 restrictions and fears, we tested and gave follow-up instructions to 96 women.  This was our first project, and illustrates our dedicated, dynamic, and action-oriented Club!

An estimated 500 million people worldwide became infected. Many cities closed theaters and cinemas, and placed restrictions on public gatherings. Rotary clubs adjusted their activities while also helping the sick.

This is how Rotary responded to the influenza pandemic that began in 1918 and came in three waves, lasting more than a year.

Rotary and the United Nations have a shared history of working toward peace and addressing humanitarian issues around the world.

During World War II, Rotary informed and educated members about the formation of the United Nations and the importance of planning for peace. Materials such as the booklet “From Here On!” and articles in The Rotarian helped members understand the UN before it was formally established and follow its work after its charter. 

Many countries were fighting the war when the term “United Nations” was first used officially in the 1942 “Declaration by United Nations.” The 26 nations that signed it pledged to uphold the ideals expressed by the United States and the United Kingdom the previous year of the common principles “on which they based their hopes for a better future for the world.”
