Rotary Club of Knoxville IA’s End Polio Now event is Tuesday October 24, 2017 at the Red Rock Grill & Still (124 S 2nd St, Knoxville, IA 50138), from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. $20/person for appetizers, plated meal, and desserts with 50% of the proceeds to END POLIO NOW.  Your $10 Donation becomes $30 because the Gates Foundation matches every dollar raised with $2.   Please consider giving, every and any donation counts.  
Rotary members in Knoxville IA are among millions reaching out on World Polio Day, October 24, 2017 to raise awareness, funds, and support to end polio – a vaccine-preventable disease that still threatens children in parts of the world today.   Without full funding and political commitment, this paralyzing disease could return to previously polio-free countries, putting children everywhere at risk.   
DG Loring Miller and his wife Phyllis visited Knoxville to energize the club in several ways: District Goals; membership; Foundation; and the 4-way Test.  He used the Presidential Theme - "You are A Gift to The World."

Knoxville Rotary Club President, Christine Buttell, presents Harv Sprafka with the George H. Andrew "Service Above Self" award.  The awared was originally conceived in 2005, when Sprafa was servicen as the Club's President.  He wanted to name it after Adnrew because of Andrew's decades of service ot the club and the community.  Andrew passeed away last month.  Sprafka has been a member of Rotary for several years.  He is the former Mayor of Knoxville, former Police Chief and continues to volunteer and serve in various charitable capacities within the Knoxville Community.  Sprafka came to Knoxville in 1975.  He was joined at the awards presentation Wednesday by his family.
