Welcome to Rotary District 7010

District 7010, located in Central and Northern-Eastern Ontario and North-Western Quebec, is one of 530 districts of Rotary International - the world’s oldest service organization.
Our ‘Family of Rotary’ is over 1,450 members strong who belong to one of 40 Rotary clubs, 7 Rotaract clubs and 9 Interact clubs – all serving their local communities as well as Rotary’s global projects and initiatives.
Our membership represents a wide cross-section of the communities we call home – young and not so young, male and female and a great range of vocations and interests.
Take time to explore District 7010 - "Rotary in motion". 
World Polio Day was established by Rotary International to commemorate the birth of Jonas Salk, the medical researcher who led the first team to develop a vaccine against polio. He developed the inactivated polio virus vaccine which came into use in 1955, after which Albert Sabine developed the oral vaccine that came into use in 1961.
 

World Polio Day has been observed for over a decade. It is a day to celebrate the great accomplishments achieved in eradicating the Polio virus. The most recent milestone being the declaration that as of August of this year the African continent has been declared free of the wild Polio virus.

We also use this day to thank the thousands of healthcare workers and volunteers who have worked tirelessly to vaccinate children, often at great risk to their lives.

Currently only two countries have the wild Polio virus, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The infrastructure created by Rotary and its partners have been used to help eradicate other chronic diseases such as Measles, Ebola and currently Covid-19.

The World Polio theme this October 2020 is “Stories of Progress: Past and Present”.

 
Ted Brandon is no stranger to the role of president and is proud to serve in this capacity again this year – for the third time! This incredibly busy club of 28 members has adapted to our current reality and continues to provide service to the community.
 
Spotlight is going to focus on one of their great success stories, the chartering of the Rotaract Club of Haliburton Highlands and the relationship with the Rotary Club of Haliburton.
