What Is Rotary?

About Our Club

News & Calendar

In a few words, “Service Above Self.” But there’s more to say about Rotary and the global impact its members bring to reduce human suering and bring hope and support to millions in need. Small Pox, eradicated; Polio,fading fast; real hope, delivered daily. Much more. That said, we’ve all joined this club to do our part. We’re proudly local but thinking global. It takes a lot of small accomplishments to make a big difference. We hope you see things the same way and want to be a part of it all. You would be more than welcome. Big events take a lot of small efforts and the more hands back stage the better the show. There is great reward in bringing joy to the community, which happens one collaboration and service at a time. Sleeves seem to fit us better rolled up, so that’s how we operate.

Rotary releases $40.3 million for polio immunization activities
Rotary is releasing $40.3 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds will help build on gains Rotary and its partners have been making in the fight to eradicate polio. Nigeria hasn’t seen a polio case since 24 July and the World Health Organization could remove it from the list of polio-endemic countries as soon as September if no cases are reported. Nigeria would have to go another two years without a case to be certified polio-free. But the...
