One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.  He said, "My son,the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all.
One is Evil.  It is anger, envy, jealousy, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good.  It is joy, peace, hope, love, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy,  generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?'
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

The Clarence Rotary Mentors kicked off the year with a clean-up project at the Clarence Middle School. In the courtyard of the school, there is a tree that was dedicated to the memory of a former student, Melina Riniolo, who had passed away. The garden around the tree had become overgrown.

More World War II veterans are getting ready to take what many consider a trip of a lifetime.
Honor Flight Buffalo introduced another group of vets who will fly from Western New York to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorial in honor of their service. Just two weeks from now, 27 of them will take the first of two planned trips thanks to generous donations.
"The veterans met their guardians, and got to know each other before the flight, and  do it in memory of all the World War II vets that aren't able to see the memorial," says Debbie Watkins.

Clarence Rotarian Norm Naab Sr , a World War II veteran will be making the May 5th Honor Flight to Washington DC to visit the WWII Memorial.  He will be accompanied by his son Norm Naab Jr, a former Clarence Rotarian and veteran as well.

Rotary clubs serve communities around the world, each with unique concerns and needs. Rotarians have continually adapted and improved the way they respond to those needs, taking on a broad range of service projects. The most successful and sustainable Rotary service tends to fall within one of the following six areas:

  • Peace and conflict prevention/resolution
  • Disease prevention and treatment
  • Water and sanitation
  • Maternal and child health
  • Basic education and literacy
  • Economic and community development
