Central Ocean Toms River Rotary Club during
a recent meeting. By Michael Bucca, a member
of the Rotary Club of Central Ocean Toms River,
New Jersey, USA You might think that I, a 32-year-old
member of a 110-year-old organization, would
be preoccupied with trying to modernize my club's
way of doing things. But remarkably, my experience
in Rotary is teaching me to spend more energy
convincing my generation - which keeps trying
to reinvent everything - that there is much
to be gained in the lost art of personal connection.

Syria, where a civil war has been raging since
2011, more than 6,000 people flee the country
every day. As of September, more than 4.1 million
people have become refugees, and 7.6 million
more have been internally displaced. “The plight
of Syria’s refugees is a litmus test for the
world's compassion,” says Rotary International
General Secretary John Hewko. “Rotary members
worldwide are profoundly disheartened by the
refugee crisis now unfolding in Syria and other
parts of the world,” which the United Nations
has described as the worst in decades.
