In 1988, when Rotary International launched PolioPlus, more than 125 countries were polio endemic and more than 350,000 children a year were infected. Today, in partnership with the World Health Organization and the tremendous support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the number is down to three: Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan, and so far this year there have only been 111 reported cases. Our job is not done. As long as polio threatens even one child in the world, every child is at risk. Only the global eradication of polio will ensure that no child ever again will suffer its devastating effects.
 
Thanks to our local grocers: Lakefield Foodland, Ennismore Foodland and John’s Valumart and you, our generous community we raised more than $650 toward polio eradication during our Purple Pinkie campaign. With the 2:1 matching funds from Bill and Melinda Gates, more than 600 children will be saved from the scourge of this horrible disease.

BEL Rotary will continue the fight until the world is declared polio free!!
 
Thanks to BEL Rotary carpenters Bob Fawcett and Mike Richardson, children had the opportunity to make their own bat houses at the Ennismore Shamrock Festival.  The smiles on the kid's faces said it all as the children proudly took away their creation.  Another BEL Rotary project!! 
 
Despite the rain, wind and snow the hardy Rotarians of the BEL Club showed up for the annual spring clean up at Rotary Park.  The day turned into a day of maintenance and the crew worked to restore and repair the shoreline.  The park is enjoyed throughout the year by community members and visitors alike angling, boating, picnicking or simply enjoying the beautiful sunsets. 
 
Our club attended the 2018 District Conference at Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, from October 19 - 22, 2018. The weekend was full of amazing and inspiring speaking, hands on service projects, fellowship and great food. Below are some photos from the weekend. For more updates from the weekend, please visit our facebook page: BEL Rotary.
 
 
Despite the "winter" weather, BEL Rotarians, family and community partners joined forces to clean up our neighbourhood.  For the past several years, the BEL club has participated in the Super Spring Clean Up, picking up garbage, trimming the gardens and monitoring the BEL Rotary Bridgenorth Trail.  Working toward a "cleaner" tomorrow is a goal of the BEL Club and Rotarians everywhere.
 
 
On Monday, the BEL Club had the opportunity to share fellowship, ideas and common goals with our
Curve Lake First Nation neighbours. 
Thank you to our hosts for this wonderful opportunity.
