Several members of the Highlands Ranch Satellite Club joined with the Castle Rock Club to help with conduct the Task Force Recycling Event where citizens can recycle electronic appliances and computers.  The volume of recycle was enormous and the event was a great success.
 
 

 

 
Several of us from the Highlands Ranch Satellite Club joined over 20 volunteers from the Littleton Rotary club to fix up a house and yard of an elderly woman in Littleton.  It's amazing what 20 people with tools and chainsaws can accomplish in just 4 hours.  We cleaned the yard of excess vegetation, replaced rotting boards, and painted the entire front of the house.  The resident was very appreciative of our efforts and learned first hand about the power of Rotary in the community.    
 
 
 

The Littleton Sunrise Rotary Club responded to a citizen in need by helping him comply with local fire and health department requirements.  Our citizen needed help moving the contents of his former video store into a storage facility.  Five members of the Sunrise club and the Littleton noon club assisted in moving a large inventory of video store materials and shelving from a one room apartment into storage.  The job took 5 hours of hard work, but allowed our citizen to safely remain in his home.

World Polio Day: Health officials laud polio eradication achievements, point to disease’s endgame
After a year of shrinking polio cases worldwide, the crippling disease is now on the cusp of being eradicated, said top health officials at Rotary's second annual World Polio Day event on 24 October. At a special Livestream program -- World Polio Day: Make History Today -- Rotary leaders joined global health experts and celebrity singers to hail the progress of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. After nearly 30 years, the GPEI, which includes Rotary, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is on...
Dynamic young club uses social media to grow
Erin Mills had just finished teaching for the day in Montevideo, Uruguay, when her smartphone buzzed with a message. An impromptu gathering to watch Uruguay's World Cup soccer match was being organized. Through the power of a mobile messaging app, a majority of the Rotary Club of Plaza Matriz had soon assembled at a member's home to munch on baked goods and chips while rooting for their national team. That enthusiasm and ability to draw a crowd has made the club, which just received its charter in July, a success in the country's capital city. Made up almost entirely of young professionals,...

Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country. With...

Today, there are only three countries where the poliovirus still exists: Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. Fewer than 250 polio cases were reported worldwide in 2012, which is a 99% reduction since the 1980s, when the world saw about 1,000 cases per day. If we don't stay the course, experts say polio could rebound
