old kings rotary club

The Rotary Club of Flagler Beach announces that the Rotary Club of Groton, N.Y. has donated $1,000 to the Old Kings Elementary School’s EarlyAct Club to distribute locally to assist Hurricane Irma storm victims. Students at Groton Elementary School, where the attendance is 425, were challenged to earn .01 cent for every minute they read. Students were encouraged to read at home, and donors sponsored classes. Janet Watkins, Past President of the Rotary Club of Groton, had implemented this same type of fundraiser when the tsunami hit Southeast Asia in 2004 and brought it back for this disaster. Janet felt the fundraiser was a great way for kids to help kids and feel connected to them and what they were going through no matter where they were in the world. OKES EarlyAct received $1,000 to distribute to OKES families in need and to replace any books that the Flagler Beach Library needed replaced. They also donated $1,000 to the Orangefield Elementary School via the Orangefield Rotary Club in Texas (their library was on the list of disaster school libraries in Texas), and $500 was sent to Puerto Rico.

Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“One ought again to remember that all cultures impose corrections upon raw reality, changing it from free-floating objects into units of knowledge. The problem is not that conversion takes place. It is perfectly natural for the human mind to resist the assault on it of untreated strangeness; therefore cultures have always been inclined to impose complete transformations on other cultures, receiving these other cultures not as they are but as, for the benefit of the receiver, they ought to be. To the Westerner, however, the Oriental was always like some aspect of the west; to some of the German romantics for example Indian religion was essentially an oriental version of Germano-Christian pantheism. Yet the Orientalist makes it his work to be always converting the Orient from something into something else: he does this for himself, for the sake of his culture, in some cases for what he believes is the sake of the Oriental.”

–From Edward Saïd’s “Orientalism” (1978).
