This year's district conference is exceptionally important to the Rotary Club of Atascadero as Loretta Butts is our District Governor. The major events of the District Conference are the 200K cycling event from Paso Robles to Monterey and a cycle/run/walk event in Monterey's seaside walk. Both events are designed to help raise money for the Polio Plus campaign to end polio. Club members are encouraged to check with either Steve Hodgson or John Hollenbeck to see how you can help with this fun and important event. Click the web link below to take you to the event website.
 
 
Steve Hodgson will be representing our club on the 200k ride.  Steve is pictured below in the "Death Ride" which includes 5 mountain passes in the California Alps.  He will be doing the EPIC-Challenge ride to end polio on your behalf so that you don't need to.  What you do need to do is donate to the Rotary Polio fund on Steve's account:

Rotary Peace Centers shape hundreds of careers in peace and conflict resolution
With bloody conflicts raging in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and parts of Central Africa, the message of nonviolence and reconciliation that nations worldwide will observe on 21 September demands more urgent and collective attention. In 2001 the United Nations designated the September date as an annual International Day of World Peace "to be observed as a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence" according to a General Assembly resolution. The day's devotion to peace connects closely with what Rotary members have been fostering since The Rotary Foundation's mission to advance world...
Illness leads former Navy code breaker to form world’s first Facebook-based Rotary club
When a life-threatening illness stripped away many of her professional ambitions, Amanda Wirtz, a former U.S. Navy code breaker and professional violinist, turned to humanitarian service and Facebook to give her life new purpose. Wirtz was in her twenties and pursuing a career as a fitness trainer when a sharp pain in her abdomen sent her to the emergency room. Expecting something manageable like appendicitis, she instead found herself facing a rare tumor disorder that required her to undergo 30 surgeries over the next several years. Forced to rethink her life plans, Wirtz began focusing on...
Tips to help your club find and nurture a Youth Exchange host family
With 12 children -- six girls and six boys -- the Labordes hardly needed to add another member to their family. But they did: Over 40 years ago, Julia Mullikin, a Rotary Youth Exchange student from the United States, became like another daughter to this large family in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico. "She's been a blessing for us," says Maria Victoria Hallal de Laborde who was 18 when Mullikin arrived in 1973. Like many exchange students, Mullikin remains close to her host family. So close that when one of Laborde's sisters was diagnosed with a rare, fatal disease, Mullikin arranged to send the...
Free vegetable gardens sprouting up around France
Imagine a community where the residents are all free to plant, grow, harvest, and eat healthy food whenever they want without having to pay for it. Sound too good to be true? That's exactly what residents of more than 20 cities and towns in France are doing through a project called Potalib. Launched by the Rotaract Club of Versailles, Potalib was inspired by the Incredible Edible project, an international food-sharing movement founded by Nick Green in England. The Rotaract members obtained Green's permission to apply the concept in France, changing the name to "Potalib," a contraction of "...
Anti-vaccine movement may have global repercussions
Supporters of the anti-vaccine movement question the safety, efficacy and necessity of the very medicines that have so greatly reduced our children's risk of catching a host of once-common but potentially very serious infectious diseases, such as mumps, measles and whooping cough. And then there's polio, the disabling, sometimes fatal virus that was every American parent's worst nightmare until effective vaccines were developed in the 1950s — and which still infects children in the developing world. Some who oppose vaccines are well-meaning parents who have come to believe — wrongly in the...
