The Cliff Dochterman Community Service
Award of the International Fellowship of
Scouting Rotarians (IFSR)
To
Be Launched at the Chicago Convention
This award is an honor
available to recognize mem-
bers of a Rotary club who
act as role models and pro-
vide dedicated service to
youth through the Rotar-
ian's service in the Boy
Scouts of America or Girl
Scouts of the USA or other
recognized Scouting or Guiding Association. The nominee must
be a Rotarian in good standing, nominated by a local Rotary Club.
No more than one award may be presented by a local club per Ro-
tary year, except that where a Rotary Club exceeds 50 members,
one award may be given for each 50 members per year.
The award is presented to a qualified Rotarian who is currently
a registered member of the Boy Scouts of America or Girl Scouts
of the USA or other recognized Scouting or Guiding Association,
who has displayed excellent service and outstanding dedication to
the program of the youth organization through: 1) contributing to
the development of the character of the members of that organiza-
tion; 2) assisting Rotary clubs in forming units; 3) exemplifying
the 4-Way Test; 4) recruiting volunteers for the Boy Scouts of
America or Girl Scouts of the USA or other Scouting association;
and 5) strengthening the relationship between Rotary and that
country's recognized Scouting or Guiding Association.
Work accomplishment and dedication, rather than a specific
number of years in Scouting or Rotary, will be the major criteria
for this award. The official nomination form (currently from the
IFSR Chair David A. Judge email David.a.judge@virgin.net) must
be used and approved by: the Local or National Council of the
youth organization, (indicating that the candidate is currently regis-
tered and active in the organization or has contributed significant
service in the past, even if not currently registered) and the Presi-
dent of the candidate's Rotary Club.
The application and a check in the amount to cover the cost of
the award shall be sent to the International Fellowship of Scouting
Rotarians for final approval and issuance of the Award. The award
will consist of a Certificate, appropriate medal to be developed, and
uniform insignia as may be approved by that local Scouting or
Guiding organization (for Boy Scouts of America it is the Commu-
nity Service Award's square knot). The recognition is not avail-
able at this time but should be available by October 2005. For fur-
ther information beginning July 1, 2005 contact N. L. "Bud" Alli-
son
at email ifsna@prodigy.net

Dalai Lama headlines centennial event of India club. The inter-
nationally revered Buddhist monk, Tibetan leader. and Nobel Peace
Prize laureate spoke at the Rotary Club of Bangalore Midtown,
Karnataka, India meeting. He highlighted the service Rotary pro-
vides to society. and the help they provide to the needy. District

Centennial Scouts Program Underway
Rotary District 5160 in California, has just announced its support
for the Centennial Scout Project. The district has agreed to provide
$9,000 towards sponsoring two Scouts to attend the World Jambo-
ree which will be held in England and celebrate the 100
th
Anniver-
sary of World Scouting. This Rotary District will be lead by Dis-
trict Governor-elect Brian Thiessen, a life member and past In-
teramerican Chairman of IFSR.

All Rotary Districts world wide should
support this Centennial Scout Project
This project is designed to bring a local member of the Boy
Scouts in that Rotary District and a Scout from one of the "third
world" countries together in Friendship and Brotherhood. It is,
also, designed to give them a chance to "meet" via the internet or
by other means prior to the Jamboree in order to establish a rela-
tionship before they meet in England to enjoy camping together as
friends. (WOSM will provide the local Rotary Districts with the
selected "third world country" Scout or assist in helping make ar-
rangements for the Scout once a Rotary District is identified as
participating).
This is a most worthwhile project and directly affects local
Scouting as well as all Scout Associations. Locally IFSR members
can be the catalyst to see the process happens, help raise awareness
and funds to make it happen.
Recognitions of Members
We want to pay tribute to the many members who are making
contributions within and without of Scouting. The only way we
can learn about these is for each one to inform the editor as they
occur. We will salute those we hear about from time to time.
Recent recognitions were afforded to: David A. Judge, World
Chairman by receiving the MBE (Member of the British Empire)
from Queen Elizabeth II (see page 5), Richard Burdick, Interna-
tional Commissioner of the BSA received the Youth of Americas
Award from the Interamerican Region of WOSM and the Bronze
