"ROTARY SERVING HUMANITY" THEME FOR 2016-2017
R otary’s founder, Paul Harris, believed that serving humanity is “the most worthwhile thing a person can do,” RI
President-elect John F. Germ said, and that being a part of Rotary is a “great opportunity” to make that happen.
Germ unveiled the 2016-2017 presidential theme, Rotary Serving Humanity,
to incoming district governors on January 18 at the International Assembly in San
Diego, which was attended by District 5520 Governor-Elect David Anderson.
“I believe everyone recognizes the opportunity to serve Rotary for what it truly
is: not a small opportunity, but a great one; an opportunity of a lifetime to change
the world for the better, forever through Rotary’s service to humanity,” said Germ,
who is from Chattanooga, Tenn., and who will take over a RI president on July 1.
Rotary members around the globe are serving humanity by providing clean water to underdeveloped communities,
promoting peace in conflict areas, and strengthening communities through basic education and literacy. But
none more important than our work to eradicate polio worldwide, he said. After a historic year in which transmission
of the wild poliovirus was stopped in Nigeria and all of Africa, Germ said we are closer than ever to ending polio.
“We are at a crossroads in Rotary,” he added. “We are looking ahead at a year that may one day be known as
the greatest year in Rotary’s history: the year that sees the world’s last case of polio. 
 
 
 
"A few latitudes of gratitude for all you've done"  is on the card sent to Rotary from
the Socorro General Hospital Community Based Programs folks...
 
thanking Rotary for supplying the materials and preparing the gift bags given to the children at their annual Christmas party.
 
"Your generous donation to our children is deeply appreciated. Tools not toys will help them build strong foundations."
 
"CBP is really blessed to have your organization be so generous to us and brought big smiles to little faces."

A Dose of Reality - Raising Awareness of the Risks of Prescription Painkiller Abuse Among New Mexico Teens.

New Mexico ranks 3rd highest in the nation for teen non-medical use of pain relievers and to combat the problem, the New Mexico Office of Substance Abuse Prevention (OSAP) has launched a statewide prevention campaign to educate teens and their parents about the serious risks for addiction and overdose from prescription painkiller abuse.

Many people mistakenly believe prescription drugs are safer to abuse than illegal street drugs and we need to dispel the myths associated with abusing prescription painkillers. In reality, 12 to 17 year olds abuse prescription drugs more than they abuse heroin, cocaine/crack, ecstasy, and methamphetamine combined. The prescription drugs most commonly abused by teens are prescription painkillers.

In collaboration with Rotary Club of Socorro and The Mayor’s Drug Task Force our goals are:

·         Educate youth and their parents of the risks

·         Educate our community about the definition of “Misuse”

·         Develop a Handbook
