R otary International is a volunteer organization with 33,000 clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas. It initiates humanitarian projects that address today’s challenges affecting the world today, such as hunger, poverty, and illiteracy. Rotary club members represent a cross-section of business and professional leaders around the world. These 1.2 million men and women donate their expertise, time, and funds to support local and international projects that help people in need and promote understanding among cultures. Rotary International is the worldwide association of Rotary clubs united under a motto of Service Above Self.

Rotary’s flagship program is its effort to protect children against polio. It aims to eradicate the disease from the world. We are "this close" to succeeding

 
 

Support Rotary by displaying Texas Rotary Service Above Self license plates on your vehicle! The specialty plate fee is $30 or $40, depending on the plate, in addition to the regular registration fee and any other applicable fees.
Twenty-two dollars ($22) of the plate fee goes to the Texas Department of State Health Services to help fund Tuberculosis (TB) prevention and for improving the delivery of TB prevention and control services.

 
Tuberculosis is a major public health problem in Texas. In 2009, a total of 1,501 TB cases were reported to the Texas Department of State Health Services. The Texas-Mexico border region is significantly affected by TB. The frequent crossing of citizens from both Texas and Mexico to visit family, to shop, and to work opens the door for the cross-border transmission of TB.
This is a very painless way to both promote Rotary in our community and to assist in the fight against TB.
You can order a set of plates on-line from the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) Vehicle Title and Registration Services website.

 
 
Our club meetings were a tight squeeze at IHOP, and as our club continues to grow, we wanted to have a larger space to fellowship. Starting September 15, 2011 we will meet at 7 am at St. Paul Hasang Catholic Church's OLD Parish Hall. The Old Parish Hall is the one just across 2410 from Harker Heights High School, next to the church proper. The newer Parish Hall is the big building that is removed a bit away from the church and has its own big new parking lot that you enter from FM 3481 (Stillhouse Lake Road.) It is our hope to one day be such a big club that we use THAT Parish Hall, but for the time being, we will give the Old Parish Hall a whirl.

Intense summer program gives Israeli and Palestinian teens new perspectives
Students from Israel and Palestine sat together at a local art studio in Encinitas, California, USA, one day last summer, drawing portraits of one another and learning how to live in peace. Kelly Mellos, an organizer of the project from the Rotary Club of Encinitas Coastal, says that drawing someone who is sitting so close helps break down social barriers between the young people. "They see how many similarities there are between them," she says. "And they begin to understand we are all just people. There is a respect and trust that builds." The students were participating in a program run by...
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 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...
Man in iron lung discovers Rotary
One might think a man living with polio in an iron lung would know about Rotary. But it wasn't until Paul Alexander had a business meeting with a member in Duncanville, Texas, earlier this year that he learned Rotary fights to eradicate the very disease that left him almost completely paralyzed. "I was completely blown away by the idea. For all these years, I didn't know the work they were doing," says Alexander, a practicing attorney in Dallas. "It's such a perfect fit for me." Alexander contracted polio during a major U.S. outbreak of the disease in the late 1950s when he was six years old...
Alumni recognized for expanding mental health services and supporting Rotary’s work
Dr. Geetha Jayaram has dedicated her life to helping people in her native India and the United States overcome the torment of severe depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, and other mental illnesses. Jayaram is a psychiatrist and associate professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. Her work expanding access to mental health services is much needed. Depression affects at least 350 million people and is the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. "In India, there is no mental...
