In 2001, the club launched the Blues'n'Brews festival, which grew to include the Pig'n'Pepper Festival in 2010, and now is referred to as the weekend long Summerfest, though both names are still employed.

Now celebrating our 14th annual festival, Summerfest has raised almost $500,000 for local and international projects.

All proceeds from Summerfest go to charity. This is Service Above Self.

We welcome your participation as a premier sponsor of this event.

For information about the music, beer and fun at Blues n Brews go to www.bluesandbrewsrotary.org

New delegation tool launches
As part of several recent updates to My Rotary, we've launched Delegation, a new tool that will help you carry out your responsibilities more efficiently. If you have a club, district, or regional role, you can now delegate your role-based access in Rotary.org with fellow Rotary members so that you can share tasks and responsibilities to better serve your club. See an example of the Delegation landing page. Go to My Rotary to learn how it works. If you have questions, contact us at rotarysupportcenter@rotary.org.

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...

A daughter disappears. A son contracts Ebola. When faced with such disasters, "people feel anger, guilt, sadness, frustration – feelings that can poison the body and spirit," says Kalayjian, a trauma specialist at Columbia University. "Trauma survivors may think...
