Dr. Siddiqi is currently conducting research evaluating novel diagnostic tests and host susceptibility factors in tuberculous meningitis.


The Cumberland-Lincoln Rotary Club, Boys and Girls from the YMCA of Pawtucket and the Rotary Interact club volunteered at Franklin Farms on July 25th!  Zucchini, Squash, Eggplant and Cucumbers we some of the vegetables picked.  The vegetables benefit the Northern RI Food Pantry as well as The Food Bank. 
Thank you to The Valley Breeze for the great press about our 2016 Pet Walk!

Our 2016 Pet Walk was a great success with approximately 68 registrants!  We had a beautiful June morning with high energy from all the dogs and everyone who joined us! 
We raised a total of about $9600!  Woohoo!  Monies raised will go to the Cumberland and Lincoln Animal Shelters along with other Rotary Charities.
We'd like to thank all of our generous sponsors, donors, friends and volunteers for their support.
Yours in Rotary

ImageThe Cumberland Lincoln Club was honored with a visit from the Rhode Island Registrar of Motor Vehicles & past member of the club, Tony Silva.  Tony brought his Communications director Deb Rich and spoke at length about what is happening at the DMV.  What was striking for many members is that the DMV is more than Licenses and registrations.  They are responsible for School Bus safety, administering all driving tests and were responsible for more arrests than teh town of Foster.  Tony promises that while everyone in the state will have to make at least one visit to the DMV at least once in their lives, the experience will be significantly better than what you might remember in the past.  PS Thursday at 3:00 is the best time to visit the DMV in Cranston.

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,...

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...
