Club Visits and October Message

As Mary and I continue to visit our district clubs, sharing a message about adapting our clubs to a changing world and engaging club members in conversation about their club’s achievements and plans for the future, we continue to be impressed by the vitality of individual Rotarians and Rotary clubs in our District and by the work that is being done in our local communities, and internationally.
This month we think about one of Rotary’s six areas of focus – specifically Economic and Community Development – we also celebrate World Polio Day on October 24.

End Polio Now - UNICEF Video

Thank You Video from UNICEF

UNICEF and the World Health Organization have produced a nearly-four-minute video thanking Rotary and its members for protecting the world’s children against polio for more than 30 years.

Every dollar you have donated and every drop of vaccine you have helped administer have brought us one step closer to a polio-free world. This video is a powerful reminder of the positive impact Rotarians have made around the world.

Watch it now.
