You are invited to join the Sunup Rotary for this special presentation at their weekly meeting.

Dr. Gundry is Director of The International Heart and Lung Institute in Palm Springs, California, and the Founder/Director of The Center for Restorative Medicine in Palm Springs and Santa Barbara. The mission of his work is to prevent and reverse the chronic diseases of "aging" with diet and nutriceutical interventions, using surgical intervention for heart and vascular disease only as a last resort.

Sunup Rotary is a group of local leaders who work to give back to Palm Springs through events like the Annual Chalk Art Walk which benefits local students, and Bowling for Polio to help provide polio vaccines to nations in need to end polio in our lifetime.

The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.
 

 
 

I would like to once again extend a warm welcome to the Palm Springs Sunup Rotary Club as summer comes to a close and we continue to embrace the Rotary International theme of “Peace through service” as we begin to implement the goals we have set for the coming year.

On October 26th, 2012 we will participate in the District 5330 District Conference with a fabulous hospitality suite planned for the conference theme of Halloween. Our first major fund-raiser of the year, Havana Casino Night, which includes a wine raffle, outdoor cigar bar, dinner and a costume contest will be held on November 3rd, 2012 and there will be a Christmas fund-raiser auction on December 11th, 2012. Be sure to save-the-date for our club Christmas Party on December 13th, 2012.

Fall in Palm Springs brings many of our members and residents back to the valley to enjoy the cooler climate and activities of “the season” and again I would like to welcome you to our club and the opportunities of service we provide to our community, district and world of Rotary. 

“Peace begins with a smile” Mother Teresa and you will certainly receive a warm smile and welcome at our club.

Yours in Rotary Service,

Diane Sampson

President

2012-2013

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...
Meet our polio partners
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian Eradicating polio is a complex job. Since 1988, we’ve collaborated with the World Health Organization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and UNICEF to tackle the disease through our Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Here’s how our roles break down. The Strategist: WHO The World Health Organization (WHO) coordinates the management and administration of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative and provides technical and operational support to ministries of health in countries around the world. WHO is responsible for monitoring...
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. “...
Australian students take opportunity by the horns
The rules of the Shaftesbury Rodeo Academy are simple: no school, no rodeo. It’s a message that teenagers who attend school at Bisley Farm, most of whom have never attended any school regularly, take seriously. Because come Friday night, these aspiring rodeo heroes want to join their friends to ride bulls for a heart-stopping eight seconds, if they last that long. The school in rural Queensland, Australia, also teaches the boys, who are of the Wakka Wakka Aboriginal people, basic academics and farming skills, including how to care for crops and livestock. It’s a fairly common form of...
Illiteracy traps adults, and their families, in poverty
Around the world, millions of adults are unable to read or write, and therefore struggle to earn a living for themselves and their families. Even in the United States, with its considerable resources, there are 36 million adults who can’t read better than the average third-grader, according to the international nonprofit ProLiteracy. In Detroit, Michigan, a widely cited 2003 survey conducted by the National Institute for Literacy found that almost half of residents over age 16 were functionally illiterate -- unable to use reading, speaking, writing, and computer skills in everyday life....
