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...

Area 5 - Four Club Social
 
The four Rotary Clubs that make up Area 5 within our District (Duvall, Mill Creek, Redmond and Sammamish) decided to get together and have a social.
 
It was a chance to meet each other, network and to celebrate the various projects what they have accomplished. Rotarians, spouses and friends were invited.  In addition potential members were invited, which proved to be very effective.
 
The idea was generated at PETS (Presidents Elect Training Seminar) last year.  The incoming presidents agreed that it would be a great idea to get together.
 
Three clubs showed movies or slide shows highlighting there activities.  Duvall brought their display from last year’s District Conference that was use in the Fellowship Hall.
 
It was a great time for all.
