The Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) is in constant need of blankets, towels, sheets and pet food.  If anyone has any of the above that they would like to donate, please bring them to a club meeting and Kirsten will get them to PACC.  This is a great opportunity to clean out your closets and help a worthy cause in the process!

Litter Cleanup Project

The Riverwalk Clean up was great fun!  We had lovely weather and great company.  We missed some of our usual trash collectors, but we had a good showing.  The trash was light so we were able to move quickly.  It was nice to see that there was no graffiti on the south side of the riverwalk.  We also had several people say thank you for cleaning up the walk.  If you have not enjoyed a Riverwalk Clean up, you are missing a good time.  So, make sure to join us on the next clean up!  All you need are gloves!  We found a role of trash bags, so we are set for the year!  Come on out and enjoy great Service and Fellowship!
 
Trivia Question:  What was the most popular item that was picked up during the Riverwalk?
 
1.  Cigarettes
2.  Straws
3.  Batteries
4.  Fast food type trash

Rotary, the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative in 1988. In 2007, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation joined Rotary in its commitment to ending polio.

Since 2013, the Gates Foundation has matched every $1 Rotary commits to polio eradication 2-to-1, up to $35 million per year. Rotary, with matching funds from the Gates Foundation, has contributed more than $1.6 billion to end polio.

Since we started the fight against polio, we’ve reduced the number of polio cases by 99.9 percent and reached more than 2.5 billion children with the vaccine. There are fewer polio cases today than ever before, but we will not stop until we reach zero. If polio is not eradicated, hundreds of thousands of children could be paralyzed. Global health care costs would rise dramatically, and many children’s quality of life would be drastically diminished.

Join us in the fight to end polio and help us save lives and give a child a chance at a prosperous future.

One Day, One Focus, Ending Polio.

Get ready for our 5th annual World Polio Day event, co-hosted with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. At 2:30pm PDT (21:30 GMT) we will stream live from Gates Foundation headquarters in Seattle, bringing together more than 100,000 viewers around the world. Join us as global health experts and celebrities share our progress on the road to polio eradication.
