Super Bingo  

Typically, 200+ bingo players participate in our Super Bingo held in Spring and Fall.  Through the generosity of those who play, we are able to raise funds that go to support many local causes.  We extend our thanks and gratitude to all who took part in this Fall's Super Bingo.  Keep watch for the date of our Spring event.  We hope to see you there!

 

 

Outgoing President Charlie Browne named Jim Jung as Rotarian of the Year.  The honor was bestowed during the club's recent Changeover Meeting held July 21 at the Rotary Centennial Pavilion in St. Johnsbury. Jung serves Rotary in many capacities.  To name a few, he is chairman of the club's Rotary Foundation, and coordinator of the RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) and Rotary Speech Contest.

Our Rotary Basketball Tournament promotes good sportsmanship among the 500-plus students from Northern Vermont and New Hampshire whose teams participate each year.  The two-week tournament is also our Club's biggest annual fundraiser.  The proceeds support sending children to summer camps.

Historically, funds from our Tourament and other funds raised by our club have supported the following St. Johnsbury Rotary Club projects:

• Literacy and education: Our club distributes 240 dictionaries and atlases to local schoolchildren each year
• Everybody Wins, an after school reading/mentoring program
• Scholastic Achievement Awards to college-bound students
• Northeast Kingdom Youth Services (NEKYS)
• First Night
• Four area Red Cross Blood Drives collecting 700 pints of blood annually
• Meals on Wheels
• Shared Heat
• The Santa Fund
and many more local projects.

Miles to end polio: $6 million crosses the finish line for polio eradication
Rotary General Secretary John Hewko and six RI staff members bicycled 104 miles in Tucson Arizona, USA, on Saturday, for the Miles to End Polio event, raising more than $6 million for polio eradication. The money raised by Rotary will receive a two-to-one match from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. In addition to the team from Evanston, 100 Rotary member riders took part in the ride. The fundraising ride is part of the annual El Tour de Tucson bike event in Tucson, Arizona, USA.

Rotary Day at the United Nations highlights the strength of partnerships
To strengthen their 69-year-old partnership, leaders from Rotary and the United Nations met this month in New York City for Rotary Day at the United Nations. The two organizations began working together with the aim of maintaining peace after World War II. Today, the relationship has evolved to include humanitarian work in areas like gender equality, child and maternal health, and disease treatment and prevention. While the UN's Millennium Development Goals are set to expire in 2015, its leaders are preparing for an even more ambitious humanitarian agenda of eradicating extreme poverty by...
A major breakthrough against polio
Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) are approaching a significant milestone: the eradication of type 3 wild poliovirus. The last case of polio caused by the type 3 virus was reported in Yobe, Nigeria, on 10 November 2012. "We may have eradicated a second of three; that's a major milestone," said Dr. Stephen Cochi, a senior adviser at the Center for Global Health at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, speaking to the BBC. Rotary has played an important role in bringing type 3 polio close to extinction. PolioPlus grants have provided key...

Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager shot in the head for speaking out against the Taliban in support of girls' education, has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2014. Yousafzai, whose father is a Rotarian, shares the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, a native of India who has worked to combat the exploitation of children for financial gain, according to an announcement in October from the Norwegian Nobel Committee.
