A BIG THANK YOU to all the members of Tacoma South Rotary, Harkness Furniture, and our guests!!! Our annual Indoor Golf Tourney/Auction was a success!! We raised money for Winterfest at PLU that will be used to buy winter coats and Christmas toys for very under-privileged children in our area.

Here are some pictures of our Rotarians and guests having some fun!

As those of you know that live here, the Pierce County area was hit HARD by snow and then an ice storm! Very unusual for our area. It caused much devastation across the area. My sister has a nesting pair of eagles that live on her property along the Nisqually River. The nest, which she says can weigh up to 1000#, came crashing down in the storm! Very sad! However, we also saw some beauty when the snow first fell. Sandra took this photo in her yard during the storm. I hope this is the end of snow and ice this winter!

We recently had a Christmas Fireside at President Sandra's house. While Sandra and Kim were in New Orleans for the Rotary International Convention, we were able to attend the New Orleans School of Cooking. At this event, we learned how to make some famous NOLA dishes....Gumbo,  Crawfish Etouffee,  Bread Pudding and Pralines! It was amazing!! While we were there, we decided to have a Fireside and to feature Cajun cooking! Well, we pulled it off! We had a Cajun Christmas Fireside! We had Gumbo, sauteed shrimp with "the trinity" (aka onion, green pepper, celery) as well as some great appetizers and salads. We had a fun time sharing stories and exchanging "White Elephant" gifts! Here are some photo memories of that night. Thank you, Sandra, for letting us invade your house!

Early cancer detection is saving lives in Sri Lanka
More than 20,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year in Sri Lanka, and many of them prove fatal. The Rotary Club of Colombo, Sri Lanka, set out 10 years ago to save some of those lives by establishing the Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Centre.  In partnership with the National Cancer Control Programme and the Ministry of Health, the center in Colombo has screened more than 35,000 patients, mostly low-income, and detected more than 7,500 cases of abnormalities that required further investigation. The Rotary Club of Birmingham, Alabama, USA, donated a mammography and ultrasound...

Rotary releases $40.3 million for polio immunization activities
Rotary is releasing $40.3 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds will help build on gains Rotary and its partners have been making in the fight to eradicate polio. Nigeria hasn’t seen a polio case since 24 July 2014 and the World Health Organization could remove it from the list of polio-endemic countries as soon as September if no cases are reported. Nigeria would have to go another two years without a case to be certified polio-free. But the...
Knocking down language barriers
Before the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, Russian was the predominant second language offered in Polish schools, leaving tens of thousands of Polish emigrants without the English skills they needed.   That has changed over the last 25 years. English proficiency drastically improved after the government reformed its education system in 1991. The country overhauled its teaching curriculum and materials and introduced English as the primary foreign language. As of 2013, Poland ranks 8th in the world in English proficiency. However, one segment of the population isn’t reaping...
Member benefits program unveiled as convention draws to a close
RI President-elect K.R. Ravindran introduced a member benefits program at the 9 June closing session of the 2015 Rotary International Convention, saying that many more hands are needed to continue Rotary’s work around the world. The program, Rotary Global Rewards, aims to boost membership and enhance member satisfaction. It will debut on 1 July. “This innovative new program will allow Rotary members to connect with hundreds of businesses and service providers from around the world -- and that number is growing,” said Ravindran. “These establishments will offer Rotarians discounts and...
