Each Thursday through October 22nd we will be passing the red solo cup collecting for World Polio Day on October 24th. Remember to bring your loose change, checkbooks and $$$ to the meeting! We are committed to helping to end polio in the world. We are almost there and need your help. 

David Marcotte headed up a team of dedicated Rotarians to help pack food at the Oregon Food Bank. Below are a couple of pics showing the crew and the accomplishment they made! Thanks David, Marilyn and  Dick for helping out on this project.

New members Corky McReynolds and Steve Calloway being inducted into our club. Shown above with membership chair Mike McMurray and Madame President Carolina Malmedal. We will hear more from these two new members in one of our next meetings.
Thanks to Marilyn Helzerman for the picture.

One of our newer members Dave Marcotte made a trip back home to see family and made up at a couple of Rotary Clubs along the way. Shown above is Dave exchanging banners at Lowell, Massachusetts and Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Pictured above is member Bill Ganger proposing to  his future bride Loyce. A check amongst a group of us veterans confirms that this is a first for our club. The proposal took place at an off-site meeting at the Washington County Fairgrounds. Bill welcomed us to "his house" and then popped the big question. We all held our breath waiting for Loyce to accept, which she enthusiastically did! Congratulations Bill and Loyce and thank you for making us part of your big day.
Thanks to Marilyn Helzerman for the pictures.

Rotary and ShelterBox support Syrian refugees
In Syria, where a civil war has been raging since 2011, more than 6,000 people flee the country every day. As of September, more than 4.1 million people have become refugees, and 7.6 million more have been internally displaced. “The plight of Syria’s refugees is a litmus test for the world's compassion,” says Rotary International General Secretary John Hewko. “Rotary members worldwide are profoundly disheartened by the refugee crisis now unfolding in Syria and other parts of the world,” which the United Nations has described as the worst in decades. “Rotary is following the situation closely...

Nigeria declared polio-free, removed from endemic list
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced on 25 September that Nigeria is now polio-free and has been officially removed from the list of countries where polio is endemic. It’s been 14 months since any cases of polio caused by the wild virus have been detected there. With Nigeria’s historic achievement, polio remains endemic in only two countries: Afghanistan and Pakistan. That means transmission of the virus has never been stopped there. Nigeria was the last country in Africa where polio was endemic. The continent celebrated its own first full year without the disease on 11 August. Once...
