Here are some photos of the Hit-and-Giggle Golf Event, held May 1, 2015, at Chalk Mountain Golf Course.  Tom Zirk took most of these photos.
Jerry DeCou's birthday was that same day.  I think he turned 84.  He played golf with Art Everett, Don Price, and Tom Moore.
That team won the golf event, even though no real winner was sought.  Golf course manager Joel Clay gave the team a prize for having the lowest score of this scramble event.
There was approximately seven to nine foursomes out on the course.  I was told by several people just how fun this event was, and they look forward to the next one.  It was exactly what I had hoped for - a fun event for those who do and do not golf, spending time together enjoying the outdoors and the friends we've all made over the years.
 
Check out the photo album on the website and you can see great moments from the event.
 
 

 
 
 
Report on the Polio Endgame Program
Rotary has implemented an endgame strategy to eradicate polio.  A summary report from the Polio Endgame Committee was released in April 2015 (contact John Hollenbeck for a copy of the report).  The above table compares the Polio cases this year with last year, and indicates a positive trend.  Our Club’s fundraising to support PolioPlus does makes a difference when it is combined with all the other 36,000+ clubs worldwide.  Thanks to you all, this disease is truly coming to an end.  
 
 

 
 
 
Club Buying Three ShelterBoxes
A 7.8M earthquake occurred Saturday, April 25, 2015, in Nepal.  Some in-country officials are predicting the death toll to reach 10,000.  An online news article estimates that 100,000 are displaced by the damage to homes and other structures.

Rotary clubs throughout the world (along with other similar organizations) are reacting to help the people in this region. Our Club's Board of Directors met April 28 and discussed how our club could help. The outcome was that our Club would provide funding to procure three ShelterBoxes (see ShelterBoxUSA.org).  Each ShelterBox costs $1000. The Board's unanimous vote was that each Club member would be charged $30 on the next quarter billing, which will raise about $1900, and the Club will finance the difference (about $1100) to contribute $3000 to ShelterBoxUSA for three boxes. Each box can help up to 10 people and keep them sustainable for many weeks/months while their communities are cleaned up and rebuilding can begin.
Your membership in our Club is very much appreciated, and it contributes to this large network of Rotarians throughout the world to react quickly during times of great need.

Rotary, USAID collaboration improves sanitation facilities in Ghana
According to a 2012 report by UNICEF and the World Health Organization, Ghana has made great strides in providing its people with clean drinking water. But access to better sanitation has lagged. Only about 14 percent of Ghanaians have access to improved facilities, compared with the 54 percent target set for 2015 by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Addressing the issue isn't simple, as pit latrines need emptying, toilets need maintenance, and promoting hygiene requires education. The H2O Collaboration, a partnership between Rotary and the U.S. Agency for International...
How a simple school project in India became a global grant
Two years ago, U.S. Rotary members in Maine set out to improve the education system in Bikaner, Rajasthan, an Indian city near the border of Pakistan. The Rotary Club of Kennebunk Portside chose Bikaner because club member Rohit Mehta was originally from the area and had connections there. Mehta put the club in contact with Rotarians in India to provide desks for four government-run schools. But when community leaders returned with a request for more desks, the Maine Rotarians decided they had to think bigger. The Rotary Foundation had rolled out its new grant model, which required that the...
Korean sailor makes waves for End Polio Now
Enjoying calm winds and peaceful Pacific waters, Seung Jin Kim dove off his 43-foot sailboat, the Arapani, to swim with some dolphins nearby. The serenity that day near the equator was a stark contrast to the 60 mph winds and 23-foot waves he had to fight around Cape Horn, the southern tip of South America. But Kim, a veteran sailor and member of the Rotary Club of Seokmun, in Chungcheongnam, Korea, expected such challenges when he set out in mid-October on a 25,600-mile journey around the world. In addition to fulfilling a lifelong dream, Kim is using the trip to raise awareness and funds...
Monrovia club’s Ebola fight not finished
After the first cases of Ebola reached Liberia's capital, Monrovia, last June, local Rotary members feared that the city's limited health care system wouldn't be able to contain the highly infectious, often-deadly disease. Those fears were realized when infections quickly multiplied, underscoring the speed with which Ebola can spread in an urban center. It was the first time the hemorrhagic fever had threatened a major city since it erupted in West Africa last March. Now, after months of crisis-level response, and with the number of new cases declining, club members are looking to the long...
Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
