This Week's Polar Plunge News
The top ten clubs in giving this week are:
1. Marblehead
2. Arlington
3. Wakefield
4. Rockport
5. Gloucester
6. Reading
7. Lynn
8. Chelsea
9. Lynnfield
10. Parkway
Donations to this year’s Polar Plunge are being directly made through the donate button in MyRotary or through your club’s Foundation Chair.  Once a club has donated a minimum of $1500 it qualifies them to receive the End Polio Now Certificate from Rotary International.  Last year only four clubs in our district reached that benchmark.  I’m pleased to say that the top six clubs above have already surpassed that level.  Let’s try to get our District back to more participation throughout the clubs.  
Year to date we have raised $33,225.01 of our $100,000 goal, that’s one third of the way there.  There are 7 clubs in the district who have not started making their donations to Polio through MyRotary.  I have got questions from many of them and some are planning to attend the plunge in Gloucester.  We cannot count donations and add your club to the list, if your club doesn’t record them through the RI website.
Clubs can register their participation by clicking here.  Currently, we have approximately 175 Rotarians, Interactors and friends coming to the beach to plunge.
District Conference is Live and In Person
Come join us and celebrate the emergence of our clubs from the pandemic.  Friday, May 6.  We are going to have a special Paul Harris Luncheon where we recognize all those who have generously donated to the foundation over the past year.
Our room block is only on hold until April 5, so please make your reservation now at our special rate of $149.
We hope to see you there.

Rotary Club President of Lviv Speaks to Rotarians 
Dear Rotary Friends, The President of the Rotary Club of Lviv, Ukraine spoke to the NYC Rotary Club today and I was invited to join.  Please accept this report on happenings live from the devastation.
-Amy Luckiewicz, Wakefield Rotary Club
The Rotary Club of Lviv International
The Lviv RC is made mostly of international business people and they commonly speak English.  Lviv is the largest city in western Ukraine.  Lviv Rotary Club President James Joeriman is American and he was the primary speaker.  He is currently sheltering in Warsaw, Poland with his wife and small children.  He's working through RC networks to raise money for consumable supplies for the military hospitals.  $1.2 million Euros has led to 10 trucks of supplies and they are fully stocked at the moment.  Overflow is managed by Lviv defense forces and distributed by priority need to Lviv and the entire country.  Supplies are sourced from Poland and Germany; he is unaware of any supply shortages.  Lviv Rotary is focused on supplying medical aid, not military equipment. 
Lviv Rotary Club (in particular his English-speaking club with international members), are utilizing their international networks to maximize effective response.  To his knowledge, the other Lviv Rotary Clubs, Ukranian speaking clubs, are still operating.
