The official handover of new toilets and a kitchen at Samuel Ntsiko School, the last of seven schools to benefit from a Rotary Global Grant, was a joyous occasion. This remarkable transformation was made possible through the generous contributions of Rotary clubs worldwide, including a significant $1,000 donation from the Dominion Rotary Club.

The project, a long but rewarding journey, has brought about an amazing change for the students and teachers. The excitement and gratitude of the children is a testament to the impact of this endeavor.

While the official handover marks a significant milestone, the work continues. Additional improvements, ongoing education programs, and the fostering of strong partnerships with local schools are all part of ensuring the project's lasting impact.

Pack 109 had a great day at Natural Bridge Caverns this past Saturday!  The Scouts had a private tour of the cavern and its amazing formations.  They learned about the history of the caverns’ formation and enjoyed a pizza party together afterwards.  Everyone had a great time! 

Polio Eradication And The Strengthening Of Public Health, an article in Forbes Magazine

Polio’s defeat lies within reach.

Today, wild poliovirus (WPV) is endemic in just two countries with 12 existing cases between them: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Vaccination has eliminated the disease in every other country of the world. Vaccination campaigns aim to reach every child who remains unvaccinated in these countries — auguring a complete end to the transmission of WPV. The victory would make polio the second infectious disease, after smallpox, to be certified eradicated.

Among the many reasons to celebrate the polio eradication capstone is the creation of a durable polio infrastructure that can be integrated with national health systems to tackle other diseases and strengthen health emergency response systems.

For 35 years, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) has spearheaded a mass vaccination effort. Composed of national governments and partner organizations, this innovative international public-private partnership developed the knowledge, network and tools to conduct mass polio immunization campaigns. Rotary International, a GPEI founding member along with UNICEF, has played a distinct and integral role. Rotary’s advocacy, fundraising and community mobilization have made possible the immunization of 3 billion children since GPEI’s founding in 1988, when polio still paralyzed 1,000 children every day.

It was a great day at Leon Springs H-E-B to collect toys for the Methodist Hospital children’s group at Christmas time. The drive is for toys
for children who are in the hospital and would not otherwise receive toys for Christmas. We raised a lot
of cash and had a lot of fun to help the children.
