Africa reaches important polio milestone

Tuesday marked a year since the continent of Africa has reported a new case of polio caused by the wild poliovirus. This is the longest the continent has ever gone without a case of polio and a critical step on the path toward a polio-free Africa. But continued support is critical before Africa can be certified polio-free.

August is Membership Month!

Each August we celebrate Membership Month, an opportunity to thank our members for their commitment to Rotary. We begin 2015-16 celebrating strong membership growth of nearly 25,000 members this past year. The hard work and support of our members has led to successes such as the recent polio eradication milestones in Nigeria and on the entire African continent, both of which marked one year without a case of polio caused by the wild poliovirus. Those achievements wouldn’t have been possible without members’ dedication and their continued support of Rotary and The Rotary Foundation.

We hope you have an opportunity to participate in Membership Month promotions and activities, which are listed on Rotary’s social media pages, in The Rotarian’s August issue, and on Rotary.org. We encourage you to share these features with your clubs to help us show our appreciation to all members. And we invite you to watch this 2 minute membership message from RI President K.R. Ravindran at a club meeting.

 

 
 
And now we are into one month of our Rotary New Year and plans are being or have been made for an exciting year filled with fundraisers, family activities, joint activities and Community projects. These are busy times indeed as we prepare to continue the good work of Rotary.
 
August is named as Membership and Extension month in Rotary. And while we assign a month to Membership focus; in reality Membership and the growth of our Club TEAM is a year round consideration. If we want to sustain our clubs, we understand the importance of building and growing our membership by sharing the Gift of Rotary with more ‘soon-to-be members’.
 
Let’s first look at the word TEAM. We all recognize the significance of sports TEAMS, of building winning TEAMS; of groups gathered together in TEAMS. I have capitalized TEAM for a reason. The acronym of T.E.A.M. is Together Everyone Achieves More.
 
All of us belong to TEAM Rotary. In TEAM Rotary there are no spectators or audience. Every member is in the ‘game’; no one sits on the bench; and everyone benefits. Every member is involved at some level in at least one of the Five avenues of service at any given time; - working the front line, the coaching line, the back line, the outfield. Each one of us is involved in our club taking care of our communities through our programs and projects.

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year

Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus. The country is on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan.
