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!

Rotary Day at the United Nations highlights the strength of partnerships
To strengthen their 69-year-old partnership, leaders from Rotary and the United Nations met this month in New York City for Rotary Day at the United Nations. The two organizations began working together with the aim of maintaining peace after World War II. Today, the relationship has evolved to include humanitarian work in areas like gender equality, child and maternal health, and disease treatment and prevention. While the UN's Millennium Development Goals are set to expire in 2015, its leaders are preparing for an even more ambitious humanitarian agenda of eradicating extreme poverty by...
A major breakthrough against polio
Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) are approaching a significant milestone: the eradication of type 3 wild poliovirus. The last case of polio caused by the type 3 virus was reported in Yobe, Nigeria, on 10 November 2012. "We may have eradicated a second of three; that's a major milestone," said Dr. Stephen Cochi, a senior adviser at the Center for Global Health at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, speaking to the BBC. Rotary has played an important role in bringing type 3 polio close to extinction. PolioPlus grants have provided key...
Rotary’s World Polio Day live-streamed event is a huge success
More than 23,000 viewers in 24 countries tuned in to Rotary's World Polio Day event, streamed live on 24 October. Health officials including James Alexander, senior medical epidemiologist for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gave an update on the polio eradication campaign and praised Rotary's achievements to date. Rotary has contributed more than $1.2 billion to polio eradication since 1979. For World Polio Day, Rotary released $44.7 million in grants to fight the disease in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. In addition to the update, the event included entertainment by...
Malala Yousafzai wins the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize
Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager shot in the head for speaking out against the Taliban in support of girls' education, has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2014. Yousafzai, whose father is a Rotarian, shares the prize with Kailash Satyarthi, a native of India who has worked to combat the exploitation of children for financial gain, according to an announcement in October from the Norwegian Nobel Committee. In announcing the award, the committee praised Yousafzai for demonstrating that "children and young people, too, can contribute to improving their own situations." It noted...
Rotary’s world headquarters hosts Evanston Rotary Day
Business owners and community leaders in Evanston, Illinois, USA, joined Rotary staff and family members in a celebration of the organization's cultural diversity at an open-house Rotary Day event at Rotary's world headquarters on 25 October.
