After 20 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions.

endpolioYour contribution will help Rotary raise $200 million to match $355 million in challenge grants received from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The resulting $555 million will directly support immunization campaigns in developing countries, where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardships faced by their families.

As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.

Robertsdale Rotary Club conducted a Community Needs Assessment and through the Council on Aging found Mr. Amos who is recovering from a broken hip.  He had also recently lost several members of his immediate family and is basically alone.  Our Community Service Project consisted of doing a major clean-up of his yard which was very overgrown.  We cut grass, trimmed bushes, cleared flower beds, cleaned vines from railings,  trimmed trees, cut down trees and removed debris that had accumulated in the yard.   The City of Loxley worked with us in the pickup of garbage and yard clippings free of charge.  After a full morning of work and fun, we invited Mr. Amos to come outside and eat a picnic lunch with us.  Though a lot of work we all really enjoyed the fellowship with our fellow Rotarians!  Mr. Amos was overwhelmed with emotion and appreciation.   We were not able to complete all of the work so we all agreed that we should complete Phase II of this clean-up the first part of 2013.

  • Member Spotlight: The book on Brad Rubini
    From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian When Brad Rubini was reading a bedtime story to his seven-year-old daughter, Claire, she asked him why he was reading the words wrong. “I’m dyslexic, so I thought I was reading the words right,” recalls Rubini, a past president of the Rotary Club of Toledo, Ohio. After he explained his problem, she began to read to him on most nights instead. “She was a voracious reader and storyteller. She was always telling stories, even when she was a toddler,” he says. Three years later, while Claire was away at summer camp, she died unexpectedly as a result of a...
  • Health: Survival of the Fitbittest
    From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian In the seven days from 7 through 13 March, I took precisely 84,250 steps. This amounted to 39.85 miles. I also climbed 288 floors and burned 22,055 calories. I’m fairly certain that you, gentle readers, could not care less about those statistics. Unless, of course, you’re one of the millions of gentle readers who have joined America’s fitness self-surveillance movement by strapping a tracking device to your wrist. In which case, you are probably pretty darned impressed by my stats. I should therefore add a few crucial caveats. Caveat No. 1: That week...
  • John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
    From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
