Thank you for helping make the world polio free!

 
Sarah Jones, (RC of Albuquerque Del Norte) District Chair of the Four-Way Test Essay Contest, is pleased to announce that, "It’s that time of year again to get the contest information out into your community middle-schools.

"After reviewing past essay contest policies, implementing more student-friendly guidelines will not only enrich the student’s experience, but also improve the quality of the essays.  The time limit to complete the essay excludes some students that grasp the concept, but may not communicate their ideas effectively under this restriction.  Therefore, there is no time limit.  I am hopeful teachers and students will deep-dive into the Four-Way Test and, therefore, encourage research.

"Included in this year’s essay information packets are district goals to encourage a more vibrant, rooted Four-Way Test Essay Contest experience for our middle-school communities.  Please pass this information on to your Club's Four-Way Test committee chair and feel free to contact me if you are interested in helping during the long-term goal planning process."
 

 
 
New Mexico Dental Association Volunteers providing care
 
The lines of folks who sought help with their dental needs -- at no cost -- went around the massive Albuquerque Convention Center on Friday morning, and again on Saturday, as the New Mexico Dental Association's annual Mission of Mercy free dental care program brought in hundreds of dental professionals as well as volunteers in one of the state's largest community events of the year.

Severe storms, an earthquake, and hurricanes are wreaking havoc across the globe from the United States and Mexico to South Asia and Africa. The Rotary Foundation and Rotary clubs in affected areas are helping bring emergency aid to battered communities. 

The Rotary Foundation is collecting emergency relief funds to help victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. 

Severe rainfall caused historic flooding along the Texas coast, including in Houston, the fourth largest city by population in the United States. About 6.8 million people have been affected by the hurricane.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Irma slammed the Caribbean, Florida and the Atlantic coast of the United States.  The storm has devastated the Virgin Islands, Cuba, the Bahamas and the Florida Keys, affecting millions of people.

“The power of Rotary is in the Foundation's ability to pull help from around the world while local clubs provide immediate relief in their own communities,” says Don Mebus of the Rotary Club of Arlington, Texas.
