 Every day that you serve in Rotary, you have the opportunity to change lives. Those opportunities might look small. You might sometimes think that what you do doesn’t matter. But they’re not small. And everything you do matters, especially to the people you help and the people you love, in this generation and the next and the next. Every good work you do in your life makes the world better for them all. One good work at a time. One day at a time. That’s all it takes. That’s what we’re here for in Rotary. That’s what we do. And next year, it’s going to be your responsibility to make sure that we do it well. To make sure that Rotary serves humanity as much as it can as well as it can, and that Rotary changes as many lives as it can for the better. So that the mothers who are still carrying water on their heads, and the girls who have had to leave school, and every one of the world’s children who are still at risk for polio, see their world change for the better next year because of Rotary Serving Humanity.
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
The Foundation is the $1 billion charitable arm of Rotary International. To mark the centennial, Rotary aims to raise $300 million by July 2017 for its campaign to eradicate polio and for service in communities around the world.
 
Established in 1917 with a donation of $26.50, The Rotary Foundation is dedicated to advancing world understanding, goodwill, and peace. Through grants and other resources, Rotary members develop sustainable projects that promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, support education, save mothers and children, and grow local economies.
 
Rotary’s top priority is the global eradication of polio. Rotary launched its polio immunization program, PolioPlus, in 1985 and in 1988 became a leading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative along with the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and more recently, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
 
Rotary has contributed more than $1.5 billion and countless volunteer hours to eradicate polio. Through 2018, every dollar Rotary commits to polio eradication will be matched 2-to-1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, up to $35 million a year. Since the initiative began, the incidence of polio has plummeted by more than 99.9 percent, from about 350,000 cases a year to less than 71 confirmed in 2015.
 

 
On August 28th, 2016 the nine Rotary Clubs of Thurston County will be hosting a picnic for members and families. The public is welcome. We will have fun things for the children to do, showing off our Park, and hosting lunch (donations accepted).
