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.

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Australian students take opportunity by the horns
The rules of the Shaftesbury Rodeo Academy are simple: no school, no rodeo. It’s a message that teenagers who attend school at Bisley Farm, most of whom have never attended any school regularly, take seriously. Because come Friday night, these aspiring rodeo heroes want to join their friends to ride bulls for a heart-stopping eight seconds, if they last that long. The school in rural Queensland, Australia, also teaches the boys, who are of the Wakka Wakka Aboriginal people, basic academics and farming skills, including how to care for crops and livestock. It’s a fairly common form of...
Illiteracy traps adults, and their families, in poverty
Around the world, millions of adults are unable to read or write, and therefore struggle to earn a living for themselves and their families. Even in the United States, with its considerable resources, there are 36 million adults who can’t read better than the average third-grader, according to the international nonprofit ProLiteracy. In Detroit, Michigan, a widely cited 2003 survey conducted by the National Institute for Literacy found that almost half of residents over age 16 were functionally illiterate -- unable to use reading, speaking, writing, and computer skills in everyday life....
Meet Rotary’s new president
This excerpt from the July issue of The Rotarian magazine profiles the 2015-16 RI president. Before he gives a speech, K.R. Ravindran doesn’t like flowery, adulatory introductions. They make him uncomfortable. The 2015-16 Rotary president would rather keep a low profile and share the credit. If it were up to him, you probably wouldn’t even be reading this article. Negotiating Days of Tranquility during the Sri Lankan civil war so that health workers could administer drops of polio vaccine? Although it was on his desk that the agreement landed, he says, a lot of people worked to make that...
