5 reasons Why we need to STOP Polio
 
1) To Improve Lives
16 million people are walking today who would have otherwise been paralyzed.
 
2) To Invest in the Future
If polio isn't eradicated, within 10 years, as many as 200,000 children could be paralyzed by it each year.
 
3) To Improve Child Health
Polio surveillance networks and vaccination campaigns also monitor children for other health problems like vitamin deficiency and measles, so they can be addressed sooner.
 
4) To Save Money
A polio-free world will save the global economy $40-$50 billion in health costs within the next 20 years.
 
5) To Make History
Polio eradication would be one of history's greatest public health achievements, with polio following smallpox to become only the second human disease eliminated from the world.

Through many days of preparation the Ventura rotary club was able to make project backpack a huge success. On August 12th members of the Ventura Rotary club gathered to help distribute backpacks to local students, providing them with backpacks and school supplies needed for the upcoming school year. Thanks to the East Ventura Rotary, South Ventura Rotary, and Lions club for your contributions towards this successful event.

How Our Club Started...
 
The first meeting of the Ventura Rotary Club took place on Wednesday, June 12, 1918 at the Hotel De Leon in downtown Ventura. James Briscoe, retiring President of the Santa Barbara Rotary Club, which had received its charter in January, 1918, and Byron Terry, a charter member of Rotary Club Number One, (Chicago Rotary Club, Mr. Terry actually knew Paul Harris), were present and explained the purposes of Rotary.
 

The Julius Gius Memorial Rotary Foundation is seeking grant requests through the membership of Rotary Club of Ventura. The acceptance period of these requests runs from February 1, 2017 through to February 29, 2017. Details and the grant request form can be found here.
