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 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...
San Francisco club reveals formula for growth and retention of members
Members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco Evening meet three times a month at a wine bar after work, share a social outing once a month, and promote all their activities on social media like Meetup and Facebook. As the first evening club in the city, it has attracted many young professionals from Silicon Valley tech firms whose work schedules keep them from joining a more traditional club that meets for breakfast or lunch. But more than that, the evening format has helped the club grow by 30 percent since it received its charter in mid-2013. Danielle Lallement, who was its charter president...
Colorado joins Kosovo club to restore sanitation in blighted local schools
Blighted schools in the mountain city of Peja in western Kosovo are a reminder of the ethnic strife and war that ravaged this area in the 1990s. To restore ruined sanitation facilities in some of those schools, local Rotary members recently partnered with their counterparts from Colorado, USA. Though residents have been slowly rebuilding the city's infrastructure after years of neglect under earlier governments, most resources are going to improve roads, rebuild homes, and create new businesses. Little money remains to restore the schools. As a result, students have fallen ill, stayed home...
Rotary releases $34.8 million for polio immunization activities worldwide
Rotary International released an additional $34.8 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds, whose release was announced 20 January, will be used by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for polio immunization and surveillance activities in the 10 countries, as well as to provide technical assistance in several other countries in Africa. The grants include $8.1 million for Nigeria to support its final push to eradicate the disease. Nigeria...
President-elect urges Rotary members to ‘Be a Gift to the World’
Using their talents, expertise, and leadership, Rotary members worldwide are asked to be gifts to the world this upcoming 2015-16 Rotary year. Rotary International President-elect K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran called Sunday's address to incoming district governors the "most significant moment of my life." "All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift: one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become -- and Be a Gift to the World," said Ravindran, revealing his presidential theme at the annual five-day training meeting...
