LANGLEY, BC - The Rotary Club of Langley (evening club) will be celebrating World Polio Day by hosting a World’s Greatest Meal event on Oct. 29, 2015.  The event will be a pot-luck dinner, with proceeds contributed to Rotary’s Polio Eradication program.  World Polio Day (Oct. 24) is held on the anniversary of the birth of Dr. Jonas Salk, inventor of the oral polio vaccine.
 
Since 1984, Rotary International has spearheaded the effort to eradicate polio, worldwide, forever.  Joined by the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, UNICEF, and more recently, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the effort has slashed new polio cases from over 400,000 per year, to only 57 to date in 2015.   The wild polio virus remains endemic in only Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nigeria.  But there have been no cases in Nigeria for over a year, and it is expected that all of Africa will soon be declared polio-free.
 
It is estimated that over $5 billion is still needed to complete the vaccinations that will forever erase polio from the world.   Admission to the World’s Greatest Meal is by donation of $20 or more.  Tax receipts WILL be issued.   Contact David Truman, Rotary District 5050 PolioPlus chair for reservations or further details.
 

 

It's less than a month to go before the club's Fall Gala and Auction.  A terrific number of quality and unique items will be up for auction including:

  • A week vacation in Las Vegas during March Break 2015
  • Over $5000 in jewelry
  • Two hand made park benches
  • Flights for two people with the Fraser Blues
  • Trevor Linden autographed photos and jerseys
  • A custom made cashmere suit

Full event details and tickets are available at: http://langleyrotaryauction.org

 

 
 

The club has awarded 6 x $1000 scholarships to graduating Langley secondary school students.  The winners are:

Eric Cho, Yi Wei Zhao and Boyuan Zheng from  R.E. Mountain Secondary (pictured below), and Nicole Godlar (Langley  Fundamental), Tori Nikkel (D.W. Poppy), and Brenna Waugh (Langley Fundamental).

The Music Access Society is doing well, in part due to a grant from our club.  Pictured below is one of the students with her "new" violin.

The Board has approved:
  • A $3500 grant to the Langley Music Access Society
  • A $6000 grant to APEX Secondary School for school meals
  • A $4000 grant to Brookswood Seniors Centre for washroom upgrades
 

 
 

At the Langley interclub meeting Jan. 16, president Garth Hansen presented KPU President Allan Davis with a cheque for $25,000, which will fund a $1250 scholarship in perpetuity at KPU in the name of Marion Laurie, benefactor to our club.
