Welcome to the Global Kalinga e-Rotary Club for the week of Sunday, January 29 through Saturday, February 4, 2017. We are an Internet based Rotary Club based in Quezon City, Philippines with core groups of members in Southern California and elsewhere. We serve our local and nearby communities as well as projects in the Philippines.
With deep regret we have just learned of the passing of Dr. Felix Lapuz. May God by his family and friends during this time and may
Felix rest in peace in the hands of God.
The following is short video of Felix while singing up a storm while in Manila a couple of years ago.
As we head into the Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution Month, let us say a prayer for peace. "Almighty God, from whom all thoughts of peace proceed, we pray for the peacemakers of the world. Give your grace and blessing to all agencies that are working for peace among nations. Give to all national leaders a vision of peace through justice, and to all people a new enthusiasm for the cause of peace. Confound the peace-breakers and hasten the day whenpeace shall come to reign forever and ever. Amen." ~ Roland D. Wilsey, Past District Governor, Roseville Rotary
Rotary 4-Way Test
Of the things we think, say or do:
1. Is it the TRUTH? 2. Is it FAIR to all concerned? 3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? 4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?”
By building your team's self-esteem and encouraging them, the entire team becomes stronger.
Sing-Along Song—What a Difference a Day Makes
Take your time and sing-along (wherever you may be). Question. Can you sing as well as this 6-year old?
Traditionally, Rotary clubs have Fine Masters who are responsible for collecting fines/happy dollars. The clipart to your left is our e-club Fine Master. Do you have happy dollars, a birthday, an anniversary, a promotion, opening a new business, new car, new child, new grandchild, etc. Please feel free (and perhaps obligated) to click on our Rotary Fine Master button to your right.
The minimum fine is $3.00 to ensure a sufficient amount to take care of the PayPal fee. The purpose of the fines can be viewed by clicking on [View Fines/Happy Dollars] from the [Weekly Meetings] main menu

A Rotarian since 1968 with 47+ years perfect attendance [And some of us have difficulty attending our Weekly Meetings for only 30 minutes each week from the comfort of our home or office? Just wondering.], Paul has held numerous Rotary leadership roles. In addition to those noted above, Netzel has served as International Assembly moderator and chair, RI training leader, zone institute chair and convener, delegate to three Rotary Councils on Legislation, task force zone coordinator and as chair of numerous Rotary committees. Netzel has received The Rotary Foundation’s Citation for Meritorious Service.
