Last week was dramatic
with the virus attack. I received the following message with advice from
Pauline Augustine at the Rotary Club of
I found an easy and quick way for those with Windows systems with SYSTEM RESTORE to get rid of the infections that were sent recently. If the SYSTEM RESTORE exists all you have to do is ask the system to restore itself back to the day before any virus was accidentally downloaded. I just did this and so far so good.
Thank you Pauline for your advice!
I received the following
message from Ray Klinginsmith from the Rotary Club of
Thanks for your quick and effective response to the virus. I did receive the Re: Important message, but it was identified and quarantined by my anti-virus program!
Ray Klinginsmith --
Ray’s message shows how important it is to have an anti-virus program. If you don’t already use an anti-virus program, you can buy Symantec’s Anti-Virus on the Internet at the following link:
(click on the link)
You can buy McAfee’s Virus Scan at the following link:
(click on the link)
Either one of these anti-virus programs are indispensable tools for virus protection. Also keep in mind that if you in the future receive a message that looks suspicious and has an attachment, do not open the attachment, but delete the message.
I received the following message from Rotary International Past President Frank Devlyn:
Happy Anniversary on Rotary's 99th to you, your club & District.
Today February 23rd. is our 99th Anniversary and Rotary has never been as strong as it is today and has never had as much prestige at the International level as it does today. It is up to each of us in our own way & in our sphere of Rotary Influence to Create Awareness & Take Action as all of us "Lend a hand" to "Celebrate Rotary" for our 99th and upcoming 100th Anniversary.
There are so many good things that Gloria Rita and I have received from Rotary but one that stands out is your friendship.
Your amigos in
Frank & Gloria Rita Devlyn
I encourage every Rotarian to "Remember our Promise. To Eradicate Polio" by supporting the Polio Plus Endeavors of Our Rotary Foundation.
The message of "Every Rotarian....Every Year" in regards to giving to Our Rotary Foundation also has to be reminded over & over.
BY THE WAY YOU ONLY HAVE A FEW DAYS to include any added ideas or suggestions for my new Frank Talk 2 book on Membership Retention which you can send to David Forward (my famous ghost writer) at DCForward@aol.com
Thank you Frank, for your message! Frank is on the go as usual Creating Awareness and Taking Action, which can be very useful when we Lend a Hand and Celebrate Rotary while Sowing the Seeds of Love.
It is well known among Rotarians that the first Rotary meeting took place on February 23rd, 1905. What may be less known is that exactly 49 years later on February 23rd, 1954 Dr. Salk announced the introduction of the first polio vaccine. Isn’t it interesting that Rotary 50 years later is playing a leading roll in the final eradication of polio?
