Every Spring, Gilbert Rotary Club hosts a Team Trivia Challenge to raise funds for its local projects.  In 2018, the money raised went toward furnishing the Phoenix Childrens Unit at Mercy Gilbert Medical Center.  In 2019, the funds will go toward our Dictionary Project, which provides dictionaries to each 3rd Grader in the Gilbert Public Schools and some Mesa schools.   In addition to matching wits on a variety of trivia topics, there are silent auctions, raffles and refreshments.  Come join us at our next Team Trivia Challenge and enjoy the fellowship and fun!

Gilbert has a strong Interact Club at Gilbert High School.  What a cool way to learn about Rotary, future professions and vocations and service to our community!  Our Perry High School Interactors raise money for Crutches For Africa (C4A) and gather wheelchairs, crutches and other medical devices to assist disabled Africans who continue to suffer from the crippling effects of Polio.  Way to go Interactors!

Music has been an important part of leading an ordinary life for students at the Music School for Children With Disabilities in Honor of Paul Harris in Lublin, Poland. Founded by Rotary members, the school serves 20 students with various disabilities, including Down syndrome, autism, and visual impairments. The Rotary Club of Lublin-Centrum-Maria Curie-Sklodowska has provided funding with help from Rotary Foundation Matching Grants and the Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society, which houses the school.
 
After their son Mateusz was born with underdeveloped eyes, Mariusz and Joanna Kania looked for ways to help him be active. When he showed an aptitude for music, they looked for a teacher and were thrilled to find the Paul Harris music school.

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
 
After serving her time, Bianca sought help from a local homeless organization, A Safe Haven, and moved to its shelter in the Rogers Park neighborhood. Bianca followed the program closely -- she attended all the required meetings, passed drug tests, and volunteered at every opportunity.

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
 
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
