A Young Rotarian’s Journey Through 60 Countries!

West Bloomfield Rotary member Scott Brills joined Rotary at the age of only 25, immediately following his time in Turkey as a Rotary Group Study Exchange (GSE) team member in June 2008. It wasn't long after that, in 2009, when he teamed up his club with a Rotary club in Mongolia to help finance the outfitting of a kindergarten in a remote section of the country, for which he was featured on the front page of Rotary magazine the following year. A couple of years later he became president of the West Bloomfield Rotary Club, just prior to his four-month overland charity journey from the U.K. to Cape Town, South Africa in 2012. Follow Scott along the last decade-plus of his Rotary journey via his adventures around the world during this presentation to the Farmington Rotary Club. Scott is quite an inspiration to young folk in general and those that might enter into Rotary. So much they can do in Rotary.

Child immunizations and vaccinations

Veronica Valentine McNally

Child immunizations are down 15.3% since this time last year largely due to the stay-at-home order. That’s why one Michigan mother wants to encourage other parents to still get their children vaccinated, because if not, the result can be deadly.

“When we lost her, we just couldn’t believe that it happened,” said Veronica Valentine McNally.

McNally and her husband Sean know firsthand the pain of losing a child. Their daughter Francesca passed away in 2012 at only 3 months old due to whooping cough, only nine days after first showing symptoms.

“My husband and I decided that when we lost her, we would work really hard to educate the public about vaccine preventable diseases,” said McNally.

With it being National Infant Immunization Week, McNally wanted to shine a light on the issue. As the world strives to find a vaccine for the coronavirus, she says it’s a good time to bring the topic up.

“I think right now is the best time to talk about this because we’re seeing the importance of vaccines and hoping that this eventually, COVID-19 will become a vaccine-preventable disease,” said McNally.

McNally founded the I Vaccinate campaign with the state health department to help other parents as studies show only 58% of Michigan toddlers are up to date on recommended vaccinations.
