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!

Rotary, USAID collaboration improves sanitation facilities in Ghana
According to a 2012 report by UNICEF and the World Health Organization, Ghana has made great strides in providing its people with clean drinking water. But access to better sanitation has lagged. Only about 14 percent of Ghanaians have access to improved facilities, compared with the 54 percent target set for 2015 by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Addressing the issue isn't simple, as pit latrines need emptying, toilets need maintenance, and promoting hygiene requires education. The H2O Collaboration, a partnership between Rotary and the U.S. Agency for International...
How a simple school project in India became a global grant
Two years ago, U.S. Rotary members in Maine set out to improve the education system in Bikaner, Rajasthan, an Indian city near the border of Pakistan. The Rotary Club of Kennebunk Portside chose Bikaner because club member Rohit Mehta was originally from the area and had connections there. Mehta put the club in contact with Rotarians in India to provide desks for four government-run schools. But when community leaders returned with a request for more desks, the Maine Rotarians decided they had to think bigger. The Rotary Foundation had rolled out its new grant model, which required that the...
Korean sailor makes waves for End Polio Now
Enjoying calm winds and peaceful Pacific waters, Seung Jin Kim dove off his 43-foot sailboat, the Arapani, to swim with some dolphins nearby. The serenity that day near the equator was a stark contrast to the 60 mph winds and 23-foot waves he had to fight around Cape Horn, the southern tip of South America. But Kim, a veteran sailor and member of the Rotary Club of Seokmun, in Chungcheongnam, Korea, expected such challenges when he set out in mid-October on a 25,600-mile journey around the world. In addition to fulfilling a lifelong dream, Kim is using the trip to raise awareness and funds...
Monrovia club’s Ebola fight not finished
After the first cases of Ebola reached Liberia's capital, Monrovia, last June, local Rotary members feared that the city's limited health care system wouldn't be able to contain the highly infectious, often-deadly disease. Those fears were realized when infections quickly multiplied, underscoring the speed with which Ebola can spread in an urban center. It was the first time the hemorrhagic fever had threatened a major city since it erupted in West Africa last March. Now, after months of crisis-level response, and with the number of new cases declining, club members are looking to the long...
Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
