A UNIQUE INSTALLATION
The Leavenworth Rotary Club's Installation Dinner - 2018
By Penny Carpenter, President

Part of our mission of International Rotary is to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace. Rotary is one of the largest peace-building organizations in the world, and along with the Red Cross, are the only non-governmental
seat-holding members of the United Nations.

While attending the President-Elect Training Seminar (PETS) in Seattle, Washington this past February I was most inspired and very moved by what I heard about Rotary's efforts and support toward World Peace. Further, while attending our District 5060 Conference in Prosser, WA I heard a speaker, a former United Nations Delegate (2014), Joseph Dino of the New Jersey, Patterson Rotary Club, speak of his experiences.

This encouraged me to want to take the message of Rotary's efforts toward
World Peace back to my Leavenworth Rotary Club. To quote from a presentation made by our District Governor, Sherry Chamberlain, "Rotary needs to tackle Peace the way we have tackled polio. We need to raise consciousness in our communities".

My own first personal contact with the subject of World Peace was as an eighth grader at St. Mary's Academy in The Dalles, Oregon where I began a relationship that lasted over many years with Dr. Linus Pauling, Nobel Peace Prize winner. He personally was very helpful to me while I was working on a school project.

While at PETS, I thought about how I would present Rotary's new Area of Focus: Peace. Our current President, John Fishburne, was of English heritage and I was of the Scottish Clan Baird. If Scotland and England could finally make peace after hundreds of years of war, and John and I were certainly good friends, why couldn't Rotary with one million two hundred thousand members in the world (35,000+ clubs) make a significant difference in World Peace efforts? Why not have an international flair to our Annual Installation Dinner?

Drummer, Eric Wallace & bagpiper, Tyrone Heade  of Seattle, Penny Carpenter, President, John Fishburne, Past President

My husband John and I went to Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada to a tartan store where I was measured for my Clan Baird tartan kilt and plaid fly outfit. The outfit was then made in Scotland and sent to me a few weeks later. I arranged for a bagpiper, Tyrone Heade and drummer, Eric Wallace of Seattle to be a part of our ceremony and provide entertainment for the event. We met at Red-Tail Canyon Farm, owned by Rotary member Ross Frank and his wife Marianne, exemplary hosts. Ross hung my flags from Scotland and England. We even flew the North Korean and South Korean flags in honor of the historical dinner our U.S. President, Donald Trump attended the night before our dinner.. The North Korean flag was a gift to me from my friend Lea Smith of Eugene, Oregon for this occasion. We enjoyed the elegant evening dining at white-linened tables, decorated with lovely lavender flowers. The lavender matched the color of the thistles in the head table arrangement and one of the colors in the Clan Baird plaid. Lavender thistle is the National Flower of Scotland.

The Leavenworth Lions Club provided their large arrangement of world nation flags display for the occasion. I was a Lion's Club Exchange Student to Osaka, Japan. Two of many special friends I met on this trip have had extraordinary international lives - Taro Aso's grandfather was Prime Minister Yoshida and Taro himself became Prime Minister. Michio Sugawara became the President of the largest international architecture firm in Japan.

John Fishburne's British flag tabard was provided by my husband John. Worn over his long-sleeved white shirt, he looked every bit the English gentleman! It was a fun-filled evening - a record crowd of about 100 members, family & friends.
The theme:
To Reach Peace, Teach Peace.

LAND MINES AND ROTARY'S SIX AREAS OF FOCUS

Dear District Governor Sherry,

On behalf of the Foundation's Rotary Engagement Committee, I ask that you encourage Clubs in your District to support the Canadian Landmine Foundation by publishing this letter in your District newsletter for as many months as possible. Support for mine action is a time-tested way for Canadian Rotarians to advance the Rotary Foundation's six areas of focus, particularly in Cambodia where the Canadian Landmine Foundation's grassroots partners are making a difference every day. We hope to inspire as many Rotarians as possible to join this effort.

Wilf Wilkinson
President of Rotary International 2007/08
Chair of The Rotary Foundation 2012/13
