PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING MEETING LOCATION CHANGE FOR OCTOBER 28TH...The Fishers Rotary Club meeting on 10/28/2016 will be at Saxony Hall, 13362 Pennington Road, Fishers IN


World Polio Day was established by Rotary International over a decade ago to commemorate the birth of Jonas Salk, who led the first team to develop a vaccine against poliomyelitis. Use of this inactivated poliovirus vaccine and subsequent widespread use of the oral poliovirus, developed by Albert Sabin, led to the establishment of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) in 1988. To date, with the help of Rotary International, polio worldwide has been reduced by 99%.

Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease. There is no cure, but there are safe and effective vaccines. Polio can be prevented through immunization. Polio vaccine, given multiple times, almost always protects a child for life. The strategy to eradicate polio is therefore based on preventing infection by immunizing every child until transmission stops and the world is polio-free.

Carmel Rotary Club After Hours
A networking event hosted by our friends at Carmel Rotary benefiting The Villages, Indiana's largest not-for-profit child and family services agency. Everyone is invited! For more information, please see our Upcoming Events or the event details.

The wonder and magic of the season will be everywhere as Fishers comes together again this year to enjoy one of our town's best holiday traditions - by helping to give a better life to others - at this year's Charity Ball.

Come on out and help our Community Garden. No experience necessary!  We estimate that we will donate over 1,500 pounds of produce this year to those in need in our community! Please contact Ken Carite (ken.carite@proshred.com) or Jeremy Ferris (drjeremyhc@gmail.com) for more information about how you can help. The garden is located at Christ the Savior Lutheran Church (10500 E 126th St, Fishers).

The Rotary Foundation spends charitable contributions on multiple programs and grants. From the eradication of POLIO to scholarships, vocational training teams, Rotary Peace Centers, Humanitarian projects. The funds are used for programs and projects Rotarians feel passionate about. If you want detailed financial information you should check on-line at rotary.org and you can see how much was spent on each program as well as operating costs. With 1.2 million Rotarians over-seeing the funds at a grassroots level, funds through Rotary are in amazing hands doing amazing work here and abroad.

Engage in Rotary
Get even more out of membership in Rotary by joining a Rotary Fellowship group or a Rotarian Action Group!
Rotary Fellowships are groups of Rotary members who
  • Share a common interest in recreational activities, sports, hobbies, or professions
  • Further their vocational development with others in the same profession or field
  • Enhance their Rotary experience by exploring new opportunities and making connections around the world 
Rotarian Action Groups help Rotary clubs and districts plan and carry out community development and humanitarian service projects in their area of expertise. The groups are organized by Rotarians and Rotaractors who are proficient, and have a passion for service, in a particular field.
