Each spring Rotary clubs around the world invite young musicians to participate in a series of competitions that begin in their local clubs and progress to a national event. These instrumental music contests were created to give young people opportunities to develop and showcase their exceptional musical talents. 
On March 29, the Rotary Club of Mammoth Lakes hosted its club-level competition, which featured four talented young musicians. Winner Ari Schuldt played Rachmaninoff’s Prelude in G Minor on the piano, while second place finisher Guy LaBorde played an original composition on the bass guitar. Melanie Moyer, who took third, played Gabriel-Marie’s La Cinquantaine on the violin, and Cardiff Smith played Haydn’s Surprise Symphony Variations on the trumpet. 
All four competitors received prizes, and Ari Schuldt advanced to the next level of competition. The audience and judges were inspired and entertained by the music these young people created. Congratulations to all!

Good afternoon Rotarians and Friends,
I am very excited to announce the two newest Rotary scholarship recipients.

The first award was presented to a member of MLHS Interact Club. This award recognizes a graduating student who has been involved in the Rotary Interact Club while exhibiting high standards in leadership and community service, along with a strong academic performance.

Alexis Brode is our Interact scholarship awardee. Alexis has been an active member of Interact by participating in school and community (local and international) service projects during high school. She has helped raise funds for people in need. She exhibits strong leadership skills and is a pleasant young lady with great potential. Alexis lives the true spirit of Rotary.

The second award was designed to compliment the Mammoth Lakes Foundation Scholarships for MLHS students continuing to Cerro Coso Community College. Our scholarship provides an award to a student attending Cerro Coso with plans to continue onto a four year college. The award will FULLY pay tuition for the final two years of the degree at any Cal State or UC campus, or UNR.

Calvin Forsythe is our first recipient of this award. He has repeatedly given back to our community through volunteering to numerous sport and festival events, and at our local hospital. He has helped raise funds for various community service organizations. Calvin has an outstanding academic and athletic track record. He has been a role model to younger athletes. Calvin is a local kid with a local heart. We will likely see him back in our community after completing his degree. We can count of him to continue to give back in the true spirit of Rotary.

Congratulations to both of our awardees. And, a big thank you to our committee members and membership for their role in making these awards happen. We should feel very proud of these accomplishments.

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...
