How do we introduce others to Rotary?  By letting them get to know us.  As fun individuals, and a great group to get together with.  Our Club and Rotary as a whole wants to be known as a family.  Let’s make it a family and get together more often than a weekly meeting.

Rotary International President Elect (Next Year)Gary Huang pins a pin with his theme for next year on Lorraine Lynch in thank you for her gift to The Rotary Foundation

     Lorraine has made a donation to the Paul Harris Foundation in the amount of $300,000.00.  This gift is a combination of cash gifts to the permanent fund and the annual fund, plus a bequest gift.

     Lorraine’s passion for Rotary in general, and the Rotary Club of North Scott, started with her involvement with Rotary with her husband Gary.  He was past president of North Scott Rotary, and a passionate supporter of all Rotary

projects.  After his untimely passing at Christmas immediately following his

presidency, Lorraine joined our club to continue his work.  She works in Public Relations, Membership, Program, Foundation, and Scholarships.  Lorraine also donates funding for a scholarship each year to Eastern Iowa Community College.

Rotary releases $34.8 million for polio immunization activities worldwide
Rotary International released an additional $34.8 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds, whose release was announced 20 January, will be used by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for polio immunization and surveillance activities in the 10 countries, as well as to provide technical assistance in several other countries in Africa.

President-elect urges Rotary members to ‘Be a Gift to the World’
Using their talents, expertise, and leadership, Rotary members worldwide are asked to be gifts to the world this upcoming 2015-16 Rotary year. Rotary International President-elect K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran called Sunday's address to incoming district governors the "most significant moment of my life." "All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift: one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become -- and Be a Gift to the World," said Ravindran, revealing his presidential theme at the annual five-day training meeting...
Man in iron lung discovers Rotary
One might think a man living with polio in an iron lung would know about Rotary. But it wasn't until Paul Alexander had a business meeting with a member in Duncanville, Texas, earlier this year that he learned Rotary fights to eradicate the very disease that left him almost completely paralyzed. "I was completely blown away by the idea. For all these years, I didn't know the work they were doing," says Alexander, a practicing attorney in Dallas. "It's such a perfect fit for me." Alexander contracted polio during a major U.S. outbreak of the disease in the late 1950s when he was six years old...
Alumni recognized for expanding mental health services and supporting Rotary’s work

Jayaram is a psychiatrist and associate professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. Her work expanding access to mental health services is much needed. Depression affects at least 350 million people and is the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. "In India, there is no mental...
Rotary’s innovative tribute to polio eradication in India breaks Guinness world record
To eradicate polio in India, Rotary members displayed impressive coordination and commitment. So it should come as no surprise that Rotary members in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, were able to mobilize more than 40,000 people to create the world's largest human national flag. The tribute to the polio eradication effort qualified as a Guinness World Records-breaking achievement. "What impressed me most was that all of Rotary was represented: Rotaractors, Interactors, and Rotarians," says RI President Gary C.K. Huang, who participated in the event along with his wife, Corinna, and other Rotary senior...
