The start of the Rotary year is always exciting with new challenges and opportunities.  This year we have the opportunity to finally end polio worldwide.  In 1985 there were 360,000 new cases of polio, last year worldwide there were only 37 new cases of wild polio in the world and so far this year there has been only 8 new cases of wild polio.  Our 2017-2018 presidents-elect could see the end of polio during their term.
 
Rotarians have fought hard to end this vicious disease that affects young children in the poorest areas of the world.  But, there's more work to be done! We are asking every club in the district to join together and host some type of public event on October 24th, World Polio Day.  The goal of your event should be three fold.  First to raise awareness of Rotary's fight against polio, second to raise funds for our Polio Plus program and finally to further introduce Rotary to your community.
 
This year’s World Polio Day celebration will take place in Seattle, Washington, on the campus of The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, on 24 October. The Gates Foundation, one of our partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, will co-host the event which will include a live-stream update with experts and celebrity ambassadors on where we are at in our goal of eradicating polio.
 
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.
